A LETTER FROM THE CHAMBER
ur Chamber is a volunteer organization that requires the dedication of many individuals. The numerous events that our Chamber sponsors during the year are not only beneﬁcial to our business community, but enhance our town as well. For example, the Merrick Chamber of Commerce provides the lighted snowﬂakes during the holiday season around town and our lighted gazebo at the train station. The beautiﬁcation of our shopping areas continues to be an important part of what we do. If you are a resident, please take advantage of the many events we sponsor throughout the year. Beginning this year, we are offering Merrick residents an opportunity to become a Resident Member of the Chamber for only $25. This membership will entitle you to discounts from the businesses of Merrick. It’s a great way to show your pride in Merrick and support of your local merchants. Our Halloween parade is always a great success and provides a safer way for kids to “Trick or Treat” through our downtown shopping area. Participating merchants are thrilled to share their candy with the kids, while complimentary photos are taken and prizes for costumes are awarded. Let’s not forget about our Tree and Menorah Lightings. All are welcome to celebrate the season with us as we turn on the lights to our tree, our Nativity scene and our Menorah. Girl Scouts serenade us while we drink hot chocolate or coffee and snack on baked goods from our local merchants. What a great way to start the holiday season!

LIVING IN MERRICK Most days in the summer, someone is using the athletic ﬁelds at Brookside School in North Merrick: sports teams playing games, fathers and sons having catches, groups of friends holding batting practice, a single soccer player juggling a ball. Across the ﬁeld often comes wafting the musical jingle of an ice-cream truck passing through the residential blocks behind the school. It is a common suburban scene set against the backdrop of two of Merrick’s centerpieces: the community’s much sought-after homes and its top-notch school districts, like the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District, which has its administration ofﬁces at Brookside. Stretching from North Jerusalem Road in North Merrick south to the peninsulas that jut into Merrick Bay, the community of 34,369 spreads across multiple distinct residential and business areas. Barry Fox, a local business owner, president of the Merrick Park Homeowners Association and a 42-year resident, described his neighbors as a “middle-class, educated group of people.” He also cited Merrick’s “excellent” schools, proximity to the South Shore’s beaches, ease of access to New York City via the Long Island Rail Road, and the Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve, which in 2000 opened on land converted from a former landﬁll, as Merrick’s outstanding features. Merrick was founded in 1643 when British colonist John Smith moved here from Connecticut and bought land from the Merri-auke-ut Indians. The tribe, which was known as Merric, Meroke and Merikoke, provided the name for the community. Merrick is remembered in those days as a picturesque wilderness of woods, plains, lakes, ponds and a river that ran along its western border. It is described as a rustic paradise. Also arriving in 1643 were John Carman and the Rev. Robert Fordham, both of whom bought 64,000 acres for $100 and other “triﬂing considerations.” England brought Merrick the George Hewlett family in 1649. Many of the Hewletts settled in the community, buying property from Jonathan Smith. John Smith Jr. built the ﬁrst home in the area in 1687 near what is now Merrick Road and Central Boulevard. Six generations of Smiths lived there. Merrick remained a rural community for roughly two centuries. Merrick Path, which ran north to Hempstead and east to Babylon, was Merrick’s ﬁrst road. In time, its name changed to Babylon Turnpike. Carrying mail and passengers between Jamaica and Babylon was a stage coach, which came through daily. Samuel Smith built a store on Babylon Turnpike near Meadowbrook Road, which served as a coach stop, general store and post ofﬁce. The community ﬂagpole was erected there during the Civil War. When the ﬂag was raised, the villagers came from all over to hear battlefront news. Today, the ﬂag is in the collection of the Historical Society of the Merricks. In 1866, the South Shore Railroad was built through Merrick to Babylon. Charles Fox, a Merrick resident whose home once stood at Merrick Avenue and Merrick Road, was the railroad’s president.
The Merrick Lea neighborhood is one of several across the community. At the turn of the century, summer residents began to appear upon completion of the railroad. The Long Island Camp Meeting Association was the biggest summer group. Two young men, Edwin Cray Camman and Richard Peabody Kent, opened the Merrick Library in 1891. A few years later, an association was formed and incorporated on April 27, 1897, to raise funds to support the library; a building was then erected. At the time, the area’s population was about 500. World War I accelerated growth in Merrick. Then, the 1920s hit. Houses went up on all sides, and prices were high. Merrick’s population quickly approached 5,000. The Merrick Woods development was considered a huge success. The Gables neighborhood, which served as home to many famous actors and actresses, was even more popular. Gables homes accented a “Spanish castle” motif. The railroad was electriﬁed in 1925. At the same time, motor vehicles grew more common, particularly after the Sunrise Highway was built out to Amityville circa 1927. After World War II, the community’s population grew exponentially. Numerous schools, ﬁrehouses and houses of worship were added. In recent years, Merrick’s downtown commerce zone on Merrick Avenue underwent major revitalization. Many businesses refurbished their facades. Sidewalks were redone. The train station received a complete makeover, as did the Merrick Library.
2013 - 2014
LIVING IN MERRICK Since 2006, The Robbie Levine Foundation, a nonproﬁt organization founded by Merokeans Jill and Craig Levine that donates automated external deﬁbrillators to youth ball ﬁelds and funds CPR/AED classes, has each spring held its annual Robbie’s Run, a 5K fundraiser that draws thousands of runners and supporters to Levy-Lakeside School and the streets of south Merrick. Today, Merrick stands as one of the South Shore’s preeminent communities, with strong home values and highly regarded schools. The Bellmore-Merrick Central High School District spends $13,000 on a typical student, compared to the state average of $10,963. Ninety-four percent of the district’s graduates attend college, compared with the state average of 74 percent. Susan Helsinger, an associate broker at Douglas Elliman Real Estate and 19-year resident, pointed to the strength of the library, civic organizations and her friendships with neighbors as the community's strong points for her. “It’s a wonderful place to raise our children, speaking from both a realtor’s point of view and as a resident. The parks are great and safe for children,” Helsinger said. “I have wonderful friends here. We call ourselves ‘the moms.’ We’ve known each other since our kids were in preschool together, and we still go out for dinner all the time.” Randy Shotland, president of the Merrick Chamber of Commerce who, at 63, has lived in Merrick his entire life, said that the community has shot up in population since he graduated from high school in 1969, but it still has a “small-town mentality.” Merrick has “lawyers, doctors, realtors, gyms, food stores,
A Sept. 11 memorial created by the Merrick Park Home Owners Association. clothing stores,” Shotland said with pride. The chamber “puts on two festivals each year. We do a Halloween walk and Christmas and menorah lightings. We do a networking meeting for our local business owners.”
Mepham High School, which is in North Bellmore, serves many North Merrick students.

We need your participation to do our job, so we offer you — our readers and partners — a reminder of how and when to reach us. To tell us what’s going on in your community, or news of upcoming events sponsored by civic, service, religious or community organizations, the deadline is 10 a.m. the Friday prior to publication. Notices are printed free of charge, but must be typed and double-spaced. We also welcome the news of your family life, your business life and your social life. We accept, at no charge, obituaries and Neighbors in the News items, including awards, honors, births, graduations, marriages and promotions. We value your opinions, and provide a forum for them in our popular Letters to the Editor space. Letters are accepted until 5 p.m. the Friday prior to publication.

NASSAU COUNTY Nassau County is governed by an elected Legislature. The Legislature is comprised of legislators from 19 districts. It includes an independent budget director who advises the Legislature on spending and revenue matters.

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.
