It is a complete automotive repair facility that performs oil changes to motor changes and everything in between. Today, as in 1946, oldtime values continue to be followed; each automobile gets vacuumed, has its windows washed, and you get a “sweet treat” from their attached general store. Cleanliness, honesty and integrity are of utmost importance to the owners, Eileen and Ronnie, and they are now servicing 2nd, 3rd and even 4th generations of family automobiles, not only from the neighborhood but from all over the tri-state area! Many of their techs are with them over 20 years – that speaks volumes! Stop in, say “hello”, check out their free oil change program and see why their best advertising is “word of mouth”. Open Monday – Saturday 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

I graduated from Michigan State in 1994 and worked in general practice and emergency medicine until November 2000 when I opened Catnip & Carrots on Hillside Avenue. I chose to specialize

in cats, rabbits and small mammals since they are more comfortable in a quiet, bark-free environment. I also participate in TNR for community cats and rabbit rescue. We moved to our present location on Jericho Turnpike in September 2013. I am fortunate to have so many wonderful clients that have made my practice a success.

209 Harbor Hill Road, Roslyn, 11576 villageofeasthills.org 516-484-9800 We are very grateful to Blank Slate Media, and to all who voted for our swimming pool as the best facility. From the beginning, in 2004, when we designed the pool, it was planned on a grand scale. Our 12,000 square foot pool was - and perhaps remains - the largest municipal leisure pool on Long Island. We are proud that the concept for our village worked, that the pool is so highly regarded, . . . and to receive this very special honor. — Mayor Michael Koblenz
