Living in Lynbrook Early history

A historical marker in front of Lynbrook Village Hall proclaims: “Lynbrook — established 1785”. The date comes from a 19th Century Methodist prayer book that indicates that by 1785, a small community of 40 houses had been established near Merrick Road and Ocean Avenue, close to where the Rockville, (then Sand Hole) cemetery is today. In 1790 a 20-by 30-foot Methodist meetinghouse was built on land donated by Isaac Denton. Benjamin Abbott, the first preacher, rode a 300-mile circuit on horseback to reach his widely-spread Long Island parishioners. The intersection became known as Parson’s Corners. The land to the west of Parson’s Corners, near what is today the center of Lynbrook, was called Bloomfield. Much of the land was owned by one family, the Pearsalls. The Pearsalls had been among the first European settlers to come to Long Island. They Lynbrook stats arrived in 1639, only 30 years after Population: 19,427 Henry Hudson explored the Hudson Land area: 2.4 sq. mi. Zip code: 11563 River. Median age: 40 Around 1830, Wright Pearsall purchased some land at Hempstead Source: Avenue and Merrick Road, at the intersection we today call The Five Corners. An historical marker denotes the spot where Pearsall opened a general country store. Wright Pearsall’s store became so widely known that the corners and the surrounding community soon became known as Pearsall’s Corners. The name Pearsall’s Corners stuck for about 40 years until just after the Civil War. At that time a post office and railroad station were built and the simpler name Pearsalls came into use on postmarks and train schedules. Hundreds of people vacationing from overcrowded Brooklyn and New York City liked what they saw in Pearsalls and decided to stay. In 1894, the name was changed to Lynbrook, in honor of Brooklyn. The village was incorporated in 1911.

lynbrook History

Circa 1910: Lynbrook looked quite different one hundred years ago. It was then a small country village with many farms and a few stores, like the general store you see on the right, where the Bank of America parking lot is today. Botty’s Hotel sat where the Lynbrook Theatre is today. The Village had just incorporated, and changed its name from the old “countrified” Pearsalls Corners.

thAt’s EntErtAinMEnt! (thosE WErE thE DAys EDition) By Art MAttson Lynbrook Village Historian In this special edition of the Lynbrook/East Rockaway Herald I want to describe for you how Lynbrook’s residents found entertainment at the turn of the last century (1900).

David and Phoebe Watts had a small farm near Hendrickson Avenue. Farm life was difficult, and there was little time for entertainment of any kind. Dressed as nicely as they are, the Watts were probably heading off to a church social on their farm wagon.

For most people in Lynbrook there was little time for entertainment. This is the Old Sand Hole Church.It was located on The Merrick Road opposite today’s Hot Skates. It was Lynbrook’s only church for its first 100 years.When newcomers began arriving in Lynbrook at the turn of the last century, tension arose between the traditionalist and the younger people who wanted to have fun. Take for instance the 37-year-old pastor of the Old Sand Hole Church, Rev. Thomas Davis. In 1896 he was fired. Why? The church members were outraged that Davis rode about visiting parishioners on his “wheel.” (That’s the old name for a bicycle).When he refused to stop using the bicycle, he was dismissed. One Lynbrook woman was quoted in the Brooklyn Eagle of Feb 25, 1896: “It does not look well for the Lord’s servant to be gallopin’ around on a bicycle just like those city fellows on the Merrick Road on Sunday.”

There was more in the way of entertainment than just church socials! From the 1870s to 1910, Lynbrook had a race track called The Lynbrook Driving Park. Folks came all the way from Brooklyn to see the horses compete. This map shows where the track was located — just north of Peninsula Boulevard, near Oak Street.

Y • EAT • PL AY In Lynbrook USA!

TOP REASONS TO SHOP LOCAL Local Economic Stimulus

When you purchase at locally owned businesses rather than nationally owned, more money is kept in the community because locally-owned businesses often purchase from other local businesses, service providers and farms. Purchasing local helps grow other businesses as well as the local tax base. Non Profits Receive Greater Support Local business owners donate more to local charities and organizations.

Unique Businesses Create Character & Prosperity The character of your local community is defined in large part by the businesses that reside there, and that plays a big factor in your overall satisfaction with where you live and the value of your home and property.

Environmental Impact Is Reduced

Small local business usually set up shop in the town/village center, providing a centralized variety that is much friendlier to a community’s walk score than out of town shopping malls.

Most New Jobs Are Provided By Local Businesses Small local businesses are the largest employers.

Customer Service Is Better Local Business Owners Invest In Community Public Benefits Far Outweigh Public Costs Local businesses require comparatively little infrastructure and more efficiently utilize public services.

Competition & Diversity Leads To More Consumer Choices You As A Customer Matter More To Local Business

The Village of East Rockaway hosts the Huckleberry Frolic every June in Memorial Park.

Early history Originally named Near Rockaway, the village began as a shipping and trading center for the south shore of Long Island. The location was desirable for ships because of its deep channels inland. A grist mill was eventually built on the Mill River by Joseph Haviland through a land grant in 1688. Some time later, an oven was purchased to make bread for the surrounding population. The Haviland-Davison Grist Mill, located in Memorial Park, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. Near Rockaway prospered in shipping and milling over the years, even after several sales of the land. The village's name was changed in 1869 to East Rockaway, and was incorporated in 1900, with Floyd Johnson as its president. At the time of incorporation the town had a population of 969.

East rockaway today According to the 2010 U.S. Census Bureau, the population of East Rockaway is estimated to be 9,854. The Incorporated Village of East Rockaway is in the town Hempstead, adjacent to Lynbrook, Hewlett and Oceanside. The primary ethnicities are mainly Italian and Irish. The Waverly Park neighborhood, near the Hewlett-East Rockaway Jewish Center and along the border with Hewlett, has a sizable Jewish community. Bay Park, while sharing the same zip code as East Rockaway, is governed by the Town of Hempstead. The Bay Park area recently sustained extensive damage to many of its homes when

Hurricane Sandy hit the community on October 29, 2012. The Bay Park Sewage Plant discharges between 58 million and 65 million gallons of treated sewage a day into Reynolds Channel.

schools East Rockaway’s two public elementary schools, Centre Avenue and Rhame Avenue, serve grades K-6 in the East Rockaway school district No. 19, and one Junior/Senior high school for grades 7-12. St. Raymond’s Catholic school consisting of pre-k through 8th grade, is also in East Rockaway. The western portion of East Rockaway is part of school district 20, the Lynbrook school district. Its Waverly Park Elementary School, which feeds into Lynbrook South Middle School, is located in East Rockaway. Annual school musicals and the inter-class competition known as Rock Rivalry are widely popular throughout the community.

history of east rockaway Delamater Denton ii: a long anD PurPoSeful life By Patricia c. SymPSon, Ph.D. Historical Society of East Rockaway and Lynbrook History is not always exciting or titillating. It is the story of people, places and events to name just a few of the things that we consider historical. This year we have chosen to highlight a community pillar, Delamater Denton II. Denton was a kind, generous, person who participated in the life of East Rockaway on many levels. In fact, his family is brought to mind each time we traverse Denton Avenue. In preparing this article for the Guide we will give credit to several people: the Denton surname is recorded from the Rev Richard Denton, who founded the Christ First Presbyterian Church of Hempstead in 1644. Delamater Denton II has a long and interesting story within the confines of the development and growth of East Rockaway. His given name goes back to his great, great grandmother, Delamater Gautier, a woman who fled France for religious freedom. Denton Avenue in East Rockaway, of course, stems from the Denton family. Oliver, an ancestor, purchased a tavern building in 1808 and remodeled it into the homestead that still stands on Denton Avenue. One of the traditions of East Rockaway was moving houses to new locations — they were moved, not razed. Del’s father started Denton Avenue. In 1903, he cut the street through the middle of his farm northward from Main Street to the Woods Avenue School. The Denton Home was in the way of the new road, so it was moved 100 feet westward on Main Street. Oliver, the first Denton to own the homestead, was the largest taxpayer in the Town of Hempstead in 1837, paying $27.93 on assessments of $14,700. Now let’s talk about Delamater II. He joined the East Rockaway Fire Department in 1895. At the time, the fire department was a mere two years old. He served for more than 75 years. He worked at the Combs Lumber Yard

Courtesy Patricia C. Sympson, PhD.

Delamater Denton II served as East Rockaway's president for one year, 1911-12. in Rockville Centre. He subsequently was asked to survey common land held by the Wannamaker family who wished to develop some of their Garden City property. This work introduced Denton to surveying and civil engineering. As was common in the early days of East Rockaway, the Fire Department, the Village, the Town, the school, the waterways and public leadership were intertwined. Delamater was a President of East Rockaway from 1911 to 1912, a position known today as mayor. Betsy Davison, a direct descendant of Charles Davison of the Grist Mill Davisons, recalls fond memories of Denton. Her memories are of the 1950s and 1960s, when she and her sister Nancy visited either at the Denton’s in East Rockaway or at the Davison home in Oceanside. This was usually after church services. ‘I don’t recall any specific discussion with Mr. Denton," Davison said. "I was Daddy’s tag-a-long during visits, but I recall being acknowledged by name and being told by Mr. Denton that I ‘growing up to be quite a young lady.’ "Denton taught my dad to duck hunt when by dad was a teenager and continued as my dad’s gunning buddy for many years. He and my dad would

leave their respective home in darkness of cold winter mornings to a destination from which to row their grass-covered greenish –brown gunning skiffs across the bay, anchoring under the cover of the small creeks ('criks' to longtime Long Islanders) and meadows of East Rockaway, Middle Bay and sometimes South Bay off Massapequa and Amityville. From there, decoys or stools were set up and the waiting began. As they kept low in their respective boats in anticipation of the journey’s purpose, Mr. Denton and my dad must have shared the distant glory of December sunrises in the east sky interrupted only by the haunting sound of an approaching brant or black duck.” Delamater Denton lived a long and purposeful life, serving the fire department, East Rockaway village, the Town of Hempstead, his neighbors and his friends.

village of east rockaway

he Village of East Rockaway is a wonderful community, where home prices continue to hold their ground, even in today’s uncertain national economy. People want to live here because of the area’s great government services, its affordable homes and small town feel. This trifecta continues to draw homebuyers to our community and strengthens longtime residents’ spirit and bond to our area. East Rockaway is also just one of a handful of governments on Long Island that has cut taxes across the board two of the past three years. Working along with the Village Board, I have made fiscally prudent choices to put money back in every taxpayer’s pocket, without a reduction in any Village service. Our top priority is stretching every tax dollar, while cutting expenses and overhead. In today’s precarious national economy, this is the type of proper fiscal management and planning that allows our community to grow and prosper. We continue to experience economic growth and development. Under my administration’s leadership, we continue to improve our Village’s infrastructure such as signage, roads and drainage, maintenance and development of parks, recreation facilities, and the improvement of parking fields. To date, we have completed 13,000 linear feet, or roughly 2.2 miles of reconstructed roadways. After procuring $200,000 in grant money, the first phase of the long neglected Oxbow Park has now been completed. Our Village-owned buildings are all being rejuvenated with new landscaping, signage and updated heating and security systems. Many of the Village parking fields

are being updated with new stateof-the-art meter stations that accept credit cards. In addition, a bid has been awarded to begin reconstruction on the Village-owned parking field adjacent to the post office. This will provide more adequate parking spaces and alleviate Francis T. Lenahan the need for on-street parking. This summer, capital improvements will begin on six major roadways within the Village by a major construction company. In addition, our DPW has been provided with the necessary equipment to repair roads that require only shoulder work. This initiative by the DPW provides a major taxpayer cost savings, to help make the necessary repairs. Since Superstorm Sandy, the Village Board has worked diligently with our homeowners and businessowners to help facilitate some of our most affected areas. One example is the Fishery, located at our waterfront. Our Building Department has worked tirelessly to streamline and expedite the necessary permits. The Village Board also voted to waive any Sandyrelated construction fees, in order to help people get back into their homes and businesses. Since my administration began in 2011, we have experienced a number of natural disasters, including Hurricane Irene and Superstorm Sandy. However, the entire Village family is focused on moving forward, to help East Rockaway retain its small town appeal and quality of life, that identifies our strength as a charming nautical “Community by the Bay.” Francis T. Lenahan Jr. Mayor

Our comprehensive approach to treatment includes: • Manual therapy techniques and therapeutic massage • Physical and mechanical modalities • Therapeutic exercises and activities • Gait training and neuromuscular re-education

Swelling of an arm or leg left untreated can lead to skin infections and other complications. Complete Decongestive Therapy is a technique which utilizes lymphatic pathways to empty and decompress fluid-filled areas, allowing the limb to return to near normal size.

he Lynbrook Public Schools came into existence in 1902. At that time, Lynbrook was a small village which has been settled by people who had originally come from Brooklyn. Their origins are attested to by the names they chose for the streets and avenues they paved – Atlantic and Union. The Lynbrook Schools are officially known as UFSD No. 20. The district consists of seven buildings that house nearly 2,800 students. There is a full comprehensive educational program on all levels, as well as a number of extracurricular activities. Class sizes remain relatively small, creating a personal learning experience for our students. A number of capital projects are completed each year in order to maintain and address facility related issues. Our most recent projects include the installation of a turf field at Marion Street School, a baseball field at South Middle School, and a soon to be constructed addition to North Middle School that will support the performing arts programs. The community is very supportive of these initiatives that

help us achieve our goals. We strive to educate the whole child by emphasizing continual improvement in teaching strategies and allocating support staff resources to help cope with social and emotional needs of children. Dr. Melissa Burak We are looking forward to a productive 2013-2014 school year by serving the students and community of the Lynbrook School District.

Superintendent meSSage It is a true pleasure to assume the superintendency for the East Rockaway School District. I look forward to working closely with the Board of Education, faculty and community to support the students and district to continue on a path of success. Thank you to the community for supporting the school budget in May. The next budget cycle will begin again in November with public meetings starting in January. Once again, community members are invited to attend the budget advisory committee meetings to provide input for the development of the district budget. The dates for the meetings are listed in the school calendar. I am pleased to report that the district’s facilities have been fully restored to pre-Sandy conditions with many new improvements having been made. The gym floors at the East Rockaway Junior Senior High School have been fully repaired and are ready for classes. In addition, the auditorium and our technology lab have been completely refurbished and look beautiful. The district is working closely with FEMA to obtain the funding to cover the considerable costs for these repairs. After having approximately four hundred students displaced districtwide due to the devastating effects of the hurricane, we are pleased to note that the majority of our families have returned to their homes. The district will continue to provide support to all of our families in need while they remain displaced. Please join us in extending our best wishes to our colleagues who have moved on to pursue their retirement dreams: John Bishop, Donna Katzman, Jody Delegianis, Charlene Fried, Colleen Schepis and Jerrilyn Kosotan. A special thank you and best wishes to Dr. Roseanne Melucci, who served the East Rockaway School District for the past 11 years, the last six as superintendent. May these very talented and committed educators embark on this next phase of their lives with good health and happiness for many years to come. We welcome several new hires to our staff; Jennifer Spiteri, guidance counselor, Timothy Lamb, special education teacher, and Andrew Canjemi, English teacher. In addition, we congratulate Thomas Schloen who was appointed as Fine Arts chairperson. We are continuing to interview candidates to fill the remaining vacancies and additional staff will be appointed at our August Board of Education meeting. The transition to the Common Core State Standards and alignment of our district curriculum and instructional strategies to the standards will continue to be a major focus for our administration, teachers and students. Last year our Kindergarten through eighth grade students implemented new math and language arts programs which are aligned to these more rigorous standards. Teachers received professional development on the Common Core and these new programs and will be prepared to meet the challenges that these new standards bring to our classrooms. This year will be the first administration of the new Common Core Algebra and Language Arts courses and regents for our high school students. Maintaining our facilities continues to be an area of focus for the district. Also approved by the voters last May was the expenditure of the facilities reserve. These funds will be used to

install district-wide security cameras with security software upgrades, fund improvements to the Rhame Avenue parking lot drainage and safety surfacing replacement for the Centre Avenue playground. In addition, improvements to the Lisa Ruiz East Rockaway Jr. Sr. High School ventilation system in the crawl space will be completed and spray foam insulation will be added under the auditorium to control moisture. We continue to expand and upgrade our technology. With the public’s vote to expend funds from the technology reserve, we will continue to install document cameras and interactive white boards in classrooms and have planned upgrades to our music and technology labs. We will be implementing a new point of sale system for food services that will add convenience to food sales allowing families to establish and manage family accounts. The technology reserve funds will also be used to upgrade our infrastructure. As the new school year begins, I invite you to refer to the school calendar for the many exciting activities and events that occur in our schools throughout the year. To reduce printing and mailing costs, the district calendar will not be mailed home this year. Instead, the calendar, along with other important information, will be available at our website We encourage you to visit our website to see the many wonderful activities and accomplishments of our students. Should you require a paper copy of the calendar, please call the superintendent’s office. Your participation at our events is greatly appreciated. I wish everyone a wonderful and successful school year! Lisa Ruiz

It includes an independent budget director who advises the Legislature on spending and revenue matters. The Legislature also enables residents to submit petitions for proposed new laws that legislators are obligated to consider. The 19 county legislators serve two-year terms. The county executive — currently Republican Edward Mangano — serves a four-year term and is the chief administrator. Nassau also has an elected comptroller, currently George Maragos, a district attorney, Kathleen Rice, and a county clerk, Maureen O'Connell.

towN of hempstead The Town of Hempstead, founded in 1644, is the largest township in the United States, encompassing 142 square miles with a population of approximately 760,000 people. Within the Town there are 34 unincorporated areas and 22 incorporated villages, more than 65 parks and marinas, and 2,500 miles of roads. Under the current system, the Town of Hempstead is overseen by a town supervisor — currently Republican Kate Murray — and a six-member Town Council. The six members of the council are elected from one of six councilmatic districts. The supervisor has a two-year term, and the council members have a four-year term of office. The supervisor serves as the chief executive officer of town government. She presides over all town board meetings, directing the legislative and administrative functions of that body. The supervisor also oversees the day-to-day operations of a municipal government of 24 major departments, employing just more than 2,100 people. As the chief financial officer of the township, the supervisor is responsible for the creation and the implementation of a town budget. Council members are responsible for adopting the annual budget, amending the town code and the building zone ordinances, adopting all traffic regulations and hearing applications for changes of zone and special exceptions to zoning codes.

GreetinGs from the chamber This is the 11th year the East Rockaway Chamber of Commerce has been serving the residents and friends who shop in our local stores, and this is my fourth year as its president. Our ninth annual networking and awards dinner was held this past spring at the Rocco’s Catering, and once again it was an outstanding success. This event honored two of our most prominent and benevolent businesses who received recognition. Nancy Duka from After Shock Hair Designs and Paul and Camille Agueci from Wherefore Art Thou received Business of the Year honors. Mary Malloy was honored as Woman as the Year for 2012-13 for her hard work, and support for all chamber endeavors and dedication to the Village of East Rockaway Community. This year we were happy to see the grand openings of several new businesses which can be viewed on our website, William Burke from Sterling Pierce was selected and honored by the Nassau Council of Chamber of Commerce as Business Person of the Year for East Rockaway. In June, we held our third annual networking BBQ at the VFW in East Rockaway, and everyone had an enjoyable time. Many activities have been planned by the Chamber. We sponsor a classic car show every Monday night from 6 to 10 p.m. from June 3 through August 26 on Main Street. Please come and enjoy the cars and music! This year we had two Street fairs. The first one was on Sunday June 9, and it was very successful. We had many vendors that included crafts, food and more. Our second street fair will be on Sunday, Sept. 8 rom 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Main Street in East Rockaway. Please bring the whole family for a fun day.


The East Rockaway Chamber of Commerce also hosts a banner program. Each banner will include a sponsor recognition area on the lower quarter of the banner, giving the merchant the opportunity to promote your business to the local community. These banners also add great charm and look to our village as well. If anyone is Debbie Hirschberg interested please contact me. The East Rockaway Community was devastated by Hurricane Sandy last year. There were a lot of businesses and homes destroyed. I am very proud of how this community came together to help one another. East Rockaway will be stronger than before. An emphasis will be placed on attracting businesses to the few remaining storefronts, and bolstering businesses already established in the village. We also plan to support scholarship funds and work with the local schools. Additional cooperation with the local businesses will help establish East Rockaway as a vibrant and safe place to live, shop and raise a family. A growing membership and active participation is an imperative need of any successful chamber. So if you haven’t joined yet, consider doing so today. Please support all of our local East Rockaway businesses. For more information, call me or Rosa Soto at (516) 887-3131 or visit Debbie HirscHberg President, East Rockaway Chamber of Commerce
