Great Neck: A special place to live BY B I LL SAN ANTONIO When the Native American tribe of the Mattinecock first settled in what is now northwest Nassau County hundreds of years ago, they called the region “Menhaden-Ock,” likely due to the large fish population that swam the surrounding waters. Legend has it that when European settlers later arrived in the 1640s, “Menhaden-Ock” became “Madnan’s Neck,” after local woman Anne “Nan” Hutchinson unsuccessfully tried to take over modern-day Kings Point.

S4

Her vicious temper even earned her the nickname “Mad Nan.” But before long, another name emerged that has come to define the area in the latter centuries - Great Neck. The Gold Coast community became a staple of the lavish parties and high-class North Shore living during the Roaring Twenties, with Kings Point providing the backdrop for F. Scott Fitzgerald’s celebrated 1925 novel, “The Great Gatsby,” as West Egg, countering the posh East Egg of Port Washington’s Manorhaven. Great Neck, to Fitzgerald, symbolized the era’s decadence,

seeping from New York City to its surrounding suburbs as America hurtled toward seemingly inevitable depression. Incidentally, Great Neck is among the first communities one encounters when entering Long Island. Occupying approximately 1.4 square miles, its nine villages and four unincorporated areas have long been a hot bed for economic and housing growth. While its permanent Manhattan headquarters were being constructed in the 1940s, the United Nations took up residency in Great Neck, further diversifying an area borne of Native

Americans and reared by the Dutch and English. Today, Great Neck has become known primarily for its myriad of Jewish heritages, beginning with the Second World War’s influx of Ashkenazi Jews and later an influx of Iranian Jews fleeing the 1979 Islamic Revolution as well as, more recently, the Orthodox, Reform and Conservative sects. And aside from the wealthy Jay Gatsby and his confidante Nick Carraway, Great Neck has also been home to plenty of beloved celebrities, from comedy legends Sid Caesar and the Marx Brothers to Olympic figure skaters Sarah and Emily Hughes and “60 Minutes” correspondent Bob Simon, among others. With its 35-minute train ride to Manhattan, and proximity to the Q10 and Q46 New York City bus lines, it’s no wonder Great Neck has also become a convenient base for the rich and famous, or a logical location for developers to jumpstart the real estate market. The advent of telephone service out to Great Neck and the birth of the Long Island Railroad in the mid 1920s made the Gold Coast more accessible than ever before, sparking suburban expansion decades before Levittown was established on the back of the G.I. Bill. Large-scale developments

G U I D E TO G RE AT N ECK • M A RCH 17, 2017

were planned and constructed, with many low-income residents lured to occupy them. But as the Great Depression hit, so too were other projects in development, halting the growth of the newly-incorporated Village of Great Neck Plaza, which is now considered the epicenter of the community. Just as Great Neck has endured hard times, it continues to work toward a brighter tomorrow. The Great Neck School District has long been regarded among the best in the northeast, from a 1952 Life Magazine profile about progressive classroom habits to the Intel Science Talent Search and National Merit Scholarship finalists and semifinalists that seem to emerge every year. The Great Neck Public Library is amid a major renovation of its Main Branch, funded by a $10.4 million bond approved by voters. Great Neck residents also play a major role within the Town of North Hempstead, Nassau County and New York state governments. They’re the doctors, nurses and administrators that run the North Shore-LIJ Health System. They run businesses and teach your children. But, perhaps most significantly, they’re the ones who will ensure that Great Neck’s future is as illustrious as its past.

Looking back: The history of the Great Neck Alert Fire Company The Great Neck Alert Fire Company was organized in December 1901 with 15 charter members and five trustees. In the company’s early days, firemen began a fundraising drive directed primarily at the wealthy residents. The men who helped foot the bill, each of whom was several times a millionaire, were pictured in newspaper cartoons as socialite “fire laddies” that ran with the apparatus and horses of the fire company. Usually pictured at the head of the horses was J. Pierpont Morgan, king of the American financiers, and William R. Grace, merchant prince of the seas. While the Alerts were conducting their fund raising campaign they shifted their headquarters from Arrandale Avenue to the Great Neck League House on Middle Neck Road. After collecting enough funds to buy property and construct a building, the company held the formal opening of its firehouse on July 25, 1904. When the fire bell tolled, it did

more than announce a fire; it was the starting gun for some heated competition among all those in town who owned a team of horses. The man who could get to the firehouse first and hook his team of steeds to the waiting equipment was paid for the task of hauling the men to the fire. When the Town of North Hempstead and the villages in the area began contracting for fire protection in 1913, most of the financial worries of the Company came to a halt. But community interest and involvement did not abate. In the years following, the Alerts increased their membership until today, when the rolls are limited to 150 volunteers. The Alert Engine, Hook & Ladder & Hose Co. No. 1, Inc. is a notfor-profit corporation. Each of the one hundred-fifty (150) members has a single share in the equipment, property and assets of the Company situated at 555 Middle Neck Road, as well as in the Company’s Annex firehouse at 142 Steamboat Road.

Governed by a board of trustees, whom its members elect to three-year terms, the company maintains seven paid fire housemen, one of whom is always on duty at headquarters. The company elects its own chief, president and other officers. The Alert Fire Company serves the Villages of Great Neck, Kings Point and Saddle Rock and some unincorporated areas of Town of North Hempstead. Today, most of the company’s funds are raised through these villages and the town. All money received from the different governments creates the annual budget. In 1928, the firehouse underwent a remodeling when the main section, which was a dance hall created for social activities to help defray the expanse of the Company, was made into a truck house; thus trucks that previously stayed in a garage attached to the side of the hall were housed in the main hall. The firehouse retained this appearance until 1953 when the hall

was reconstructed. The Annex firehouse on Steamboat Road was completed and dedicated in March 1960, replacing the two-truck garage that was used for 40 years. Work on the present firehouse was begun in 1989 with the appointment of a committee. The new building allows more space for housing the fire apparatus, more office space, an enhanced communications and dispatching area, and improved social amenities for the members. Through 108 years of history and progress, the Alert Fire Company has grown from a dedicated band of 20 men with a hand-drawn hose reel to a company of 150 trained in firefighting and fire prevention with five modern pumpers, an aerial ladder, and a heavy duty rescue truck.

Looking back: The rich history of Great Neck Library Three women, Mrs. William Onderdonk, Louise Skidmore and Mrs. M. P. Baker, founded the Great Neck Library in 1888 with only $100. The library’s original home was the telegraph office and the telegraph operator’s mother served as librarian. On Feb. 19, 1889, with 102 books and 40 subscribers, the library was formally incorporated in what was then the County of Queens as a private association library. The library sought to serve the roughly 1,000 residents of Great Neck. The six self-elected members of the Board of Directors were the Rev. Louis deCormis, president; Louise Udall Skidmore, secretary; Helen Merritt, treasurer; Harriet S. Onderdonk; Charles Gignoux; and Edward Morgan. The founders believed the influence of a good library molds and refines people into “noble men and women.” Until 1990, the library censored books they thought were considered “unwholesome,” such as the “The Three Musketeers.” The library derived its income from membership dues and subscription fees. Membership was $10 per family and by board approval. In 1921, the fee was reduced to $1. By 1892, women had replaced the gentlemen on the Board of Directors. They set on a task to build a free library. The library moved to a room in the League Building from 1892-1907, a young men’s social club near 540 Middle Neck Road. By 1900, as noted in the librarian’s report, the library was growing in “importance as part of the village life and

S14

has its place as surely as the school or even the church.” Louise Eldridge, secretary of the Library Board of the time, and her husband became the library’s benefactors by erecting and donating a new building on Arrandale Avenue, next to the Arrandale Schoolhouse. In its first year, the Arrandale Library recorded a collection of 2,500 books, circulation of 5,000 and a membership of 252. Within two years of the opening of the Arrandale building, circulation doubled to over 10,000 books a year. The board purchased books of all kinds and published lists of newly acquired titles in the local newspaper. In 1928, the library finally became fully tax-supported. The Station Branch officially opened in January

1923. In 1930, a new children’s room, reference room and two floors of stacks were donated by Eldridge. In 1939, taxpayers in New Hyde Park became eligible to use the library. In 1941, the Lakeville Library Branch opened its doors at 257-12 Northern Blvd. In 1953, the Station Branch moved to 40B Great Neck Road. Head Librarian Lucy Kinloch started Library on Wheels in 1942 to bring books to readers as a result of gasoline shortages caused by the war effort. The year 1947 marked the death of Louise Skidmore Eldridge, the library’s benefactor for 67 years. In 1954, the first Parkville Branch opened at 2052 Lakeville Road. With three

branches and a return for mobility for residents, Library on Wheels was retired. In 1953, the Station and Lakeville Branches moved to their current locations. The Parkville Branch moved to larger quarters in the Parkville School Annex in 1959. Board meetings were opened to the public in 1965 and the library joined the Nassau Library System. In 1967, the library’s first Nominating Committee was formed. In 1968, the $1 membership was dropped, and membership became free and unlimited. In 1970, the library assumed a new location on Bayview Avenue after lack of space limited programs and adding more books. Professional concerts,

G U I D E TO G RE AT N ECK • M A RCH 17, 2017

arts shows and film programs were held by volunteer committees. A Contemporary Black Artists in America exhibit has been running every year since 1972. The Library soon filled many cultural needs by have appearances from nationally acclaimed poets, authors and musicians. Shortly after the new building opened, a free library bus began providing stops from the Parkville Branch to Kings Point. Library Director Joseph Covino led the implementation of these changes; he was appointed in 1969. He conceived LEVELS in 1975. LEVELS met the creative needs of youths in seventh grade and up. JUNIOR LEVELS, a program for fifthand sixth-graders, was established in 1986. In 1974, a music room and a multipurpose room was created. In 1980, a photo gallery, dedicated to board member Morton A. Shapiro, who had died in office, was established. During the mid-1980s, a new sound system was installed in the community room, and the Comtec system for use by the hearing impaired, was made available during film programs. Video cassettes were added to the collection. The library in the past two decades take an active role in community affairs. One example is the library’s distribution of the annual Voter’s Guide, prepared by the League of Women Voters. Information and photo provided by the Great Neck Library.

A history of the Great Neck Park District In honor of the Great Neck Park District’s 100 year Anniversary, here is a look at how it all began! The information was obtained by literature from the Great Neck Park District and the Great Neck Historical Society archives. The Great Neck Park District, the oldest park system in Nassau County and one of the only park districts in New York State, was formed by long-time resident, Roswell Eldridge. Just months before it was established, a New York State law went into effect allowing towns to create park districts as special districts within their borders. It was on Monday, August 14, 1916, that Roswell Eldridge of Great Neck appeared before the Board of the Town of North Hempstead in Manhasset, N.Y. and filed a petition for the establishment of the Great Neck Park District. Its founding mission was to obtain and preserve open space. The community association was to be outside any village or city and supported by taxes on district residents. Creation of the Great Neck Park District was widely supported; ninety percent of the people approached about the petition signed it. In addition, the petitioners collected $200,000 above the necessary one-half of the assessed value of the taxable real property in the proposed district. The petition for the establishment of the Great Neck Park District was then granted; it is comprised of the Village of Great Neck, Great Neck Plaza, Kensington, Thomaston, Kings Point and Russell Gardens. The district originally served 750 families, whereas today the Great Neck Park District serves more than 13,500 families living within its borders. The first commissioners were appointed for one, two and three years consecutively, thus setting the pattern for the future of three-year elected officials. While the petition was presented by Roswell Eldridge, his wife Louise Eldridge was also committed to creating the Great Neck Park District, and both of them were loyal supporters. Louise was an early commissioner of the Park District; she was also instrumental in opening the first library in Great Neck and the first woman mayor in the

state, serving in Saddle Rock. Louise and Roswell Eldridge led the first acquisition by the Park District. In 1916, the couple and their friends financed the purchase of Hayden’s Coal Yard at the western end of Steamboat Road (where the United Merchant Marine Academy stands today) and transformed the land into a public park and beach. This was the first park operated by the district. Allenwood Park was obtained in the early 1920’s as was Memorial Field. Soon after, William Gould Brokaw, owner of the Nirvana estate in the present Strathmore area and beyond, sold a piece of his property, between Beach Road and Arrandale Avenue, to the Great Neck Park District. Three and one half more acres were added to the Park District by the Great Neck School District, and the combined property became the Village Green in the Old Village. Renowned landscape architect Beatrix Farrand planned the beautiful Rose Garden on that land. When Roswell passed away in 1927 at age 70, Louise had a bandstand erected in his memory which still stands today. In 1938 the Village of Kings Point leased Kings Point Park, including 175

acres of land between Steamboat and Redbrook Roads, to the Park District. The Park District promised to improve the land and developed this former swamp area into a facility that can be enjoyed year round. This beautiful natural preserve was to become a garbage dump had it not been for the fight put up by the local government. Since then, the 175-acre recreational facility and forest area is used year-round, a favorite destination for walkers, ball and soccer players, picnickers, tennis players, and families enjoying the playground. By the 1940’s the Park District was busy obtaining land to create neighborhood parks. These included Cutter Mill Park, Firefighters’ Park (formerly Grace Avenue Park) and Wyngate, all of which enhanced the central part of the community that had spread southward from the Old Village to the Plaza area, where commuting to New York City changed from catching the steamboat to catching the train. The playground equipment purchased at the time cost less than a game you would buy in a box today. For instance, the original see-saw for Wyngate Park cost the Park District a meager $8.55! In 1942, the bathing beach property

at the end Steamboat Road was bought by the United States Merchant Marine Academy. This sale was offset by the purchase of the present Steppingstone Park and Marina from Walter Chrysler Jr. Shortly after 2000, Steppingstone Park was expanded to include land that had been part of the George M. Cohan estate. After World War II, Great Neck prospered. Many new residents who worked and commuted to Manhattan, asked the town government for a parking facility near the railroad station. In lieu of starting a new agency, the town turned to the Park District to take on the task. The Board agreed and to this day operates 3 parking fields servicing commuters for a nominal fee. Parks were added to the District in the early 1960’s and ‘70’s including Upland (1963), Lakeville (1966), Ravine (1968), Manor (1970) and Thomaston (1978). In 1964 the Parkwood Sports Complex was constructed with a pool and rink. Since then, several renovations have been made including enclosure of the rink (1970) and the expansion of the pool which is now called the Parkwood Family Aquatic Center. Parkwood Indoor Tennis Center was built in 1991. After the September 11, 2001, the ice-skating rink was renamed the Andrew Stergiopolous Ice Rink, in honor of Andrew Stergiopoulos, a Great Neck resident who grew up playing hockey at the rink, and who perished in the horrific attack. Great Neck House is the Park District’s community center. It was acquired in 1973 and was the beginning of a new wave of expansion during the ‘70’s. The building is an English Tudor style structure which was built by Roswell Eldridge at the turnof-the-century, as the original location of the Great Neck Library. He made sure to stipulate that if and when the library no longer housed the building, it must be used by the community and not sold for private use. Today, the programs and facilities at Great Neck House have become a vital and integral part of the Great Neck community. The Peninsula Club property in Thomaston was acquired in the 1990’s and now contains a much-loved dog park. The Village Green was in the midst of a refurbishing with a new fountain being installed, when a microburst in June 2010 destroyed dozens of trees in the Village Green in less than five minutes. Incredibly, within just a few days the park was cleared of debris and declared safe, though the devastation was painful to see. However, soon after a program of replanting was well under way. The revitalization of the Village Green included the addition of the all-abilities PlayGarden, a new Veteran’s Memorial and beautification of the Rose Garden. The Park District continues to carry out the mission of Louise and Roswell Eldridge. Today the programs, events and facilities have become a vital and integral part of the Great Neck community.

Saving the Stepping Stones Lighthouse BY A L I C E K A ST E N Over the past few years, you’ve been reading about Stepping Stones Lighthouse; that beacon that was constructed in 1876 to guard the Long Island Sound entrance to New York Harbor. The Coast Guard granted the Town of North Hempstead stewardship of the Lighthouse in 2006, and the Town was charged with maintaining and improving its condition. The condition is quite poor: there are holes in the foundation and the roof, the masonry is bulging, the exterior paint is cracked. The windows have been boarded over, and the interior walls are gone. And the fog bell is missing. In addition, the Lighthouse needs a dock so that people and materials can be safely brought over to fix the structure. The Town of North Hempstead employed Cashin Engineering Associates to undertake sounding studies of the waters and sea floor bottom around the lighthouse; those studies have been completed. The Engineering firm divers worked underneath the surface to determine the condition of the base of the structure, and the configuration of the sea floor to recommend a loca-

the cost of the dock, but not the cost of repairing the lighthouse itself. And the good news is that approval for the dock has been received from the Army Corps of Engineers, so we expect that construction will soon begin. The Town has partnered with the Great Neck Historical Society and the Great Neck Park District to help publicize the need for care for our Lighthouse, and to help raise the funds for that repair. The Park District has, in fact, made some temporary repairs to the roof, hoping to carry the Lighthouse through rough weather. The Historical Society has made a series of presentations to various community and school groups about the Lighthouse, and has raised about $30,000. The Society is in the process of contracting with a Lighthouse Architect to determine the type and order of work that needs to be done. A series of well-received boat tion for a fixed dock; the required dock tours was held this past summer, taking alone is estimated to cost approximately folks on a tour of the waters around the $200,000. Many repairs must be made lighthouse. They were so well received, before the Town can begin construction that another series of boat tours are beof the dock. It has been estimated that ing planned for this summer. While we complete renovation of Stepping Stones cannot land at the Lighthouse at this may reach over $4 million. The Town time, we can tour the waters and estates has received grants which will cover surrounding the light, and learn the his-

tory of City Island, Hart Island, and the lands once belonging to the likes of Walter Chrysler, George M. Cohan and silent film star Olga Petrova. You can follow the progress at the website of the Great Neck Historical Society – www.greatneckhistorical.org, and on Facebook. There will also be lots of information available – along with Tshirts for purchase - at the Great Neck Village Street Fair. You can even view a video about the lighthouse made by the Town on YouTube at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWyhWmlP4uE. If the lighthouse is not repaired, the Coast Guard will erect an ugly metal tower with a beacon at the top, and knock the building down. We will have then lost yet another part of our history, and our connection to life on the peninsula in the 1800s. When we preserve historic structures we preserve irreplaceable cultural resources. There have been many people who have expressed sadness about the impending destruction of the Playhouse, and the losses of fine buildings around the peninsula. The Town, the Historical Society and the Park District are hoping that we can save the Stepping Stone Lighthouse from this fate.

History of the Great Neck Vigilant Fire Department About 12 men, including several from the Alert Fire Company which had its headquarters in the upper village, were granted a charter from the Town of North Hempstead for a fire company. Thus the first page in the history of the Vigilant Fire Company was written when the company was formally incorporated on November 21, 1904. The Vigilants’ first alarm occurred in 1905, when they were summoned to extinguish a hayloft fire on the property of Captain Frederick Russell, situated at the corner of what is now Middle Neck Road and Northern Boulevard. The men did such a good job at the blaze that Captain Russell presented them with an inscribed fire trumpet, which today rests in one of the company’s trophy cases and is occasionally carried by the Chief in parades. Shortly after their organization, the Vigilants found a generous benefactor, William K. Vanderbilt, the Long Island millionaire who was in the habit of associating himself with the Great Neck Fire Companies. Mr. Vanderbilt had no sooner pocketed his checkbook after signing a $1,000 gift for the Alert firemen, when a group of the Vigilants solicited his aid. Their first major piece of equipment, a Waterous gasoline engine for pumping water was purchased with his loan of $1, 500. Vanderbilt took an interest in the new company and through his aid and guidance the Vigilants grew. But, in order to maintain their three pieces of equipment, a hook and ladder, a hose reel tender, and a pumper, the Vigilants were still forced to hustle for funds. Among their money-raising devices were public dances, fairs, minstrel shows and solicitation campaigns. On several occasions out-door plays were staged with the assistance of many show people who made their homes in Great Neck including Gene Buck and Joseph Santley. Other show business people who joined the ranks of the Vigilants included Ed Wynn, known for his advertisements for Texaco Fire Chief Gasoline. The firehouse, a former barn sometimes used as a theatre and at other times a church, was employed frequently to present Edison Motion Pictures for the entertainment of the public and for the enrichments of the Vigilants’ coffers. In 1913 the financial worries of the Vigilants were alleviated somewhat by the passage of the Maloney Act, a bill which gave towns the authority to contract with departments for fire protection. An agreement between the Vigilants and the Alerts provided that the company who arrived first to the scene was the one which would be paid for the fire. By 1914, the Vigilants were sporting a check for $1,500 from the Town of North Hempstead. The first Foreman of the Vigilant Fire Company, William Mullon, lived in a house next to the then firehouse where a hotel now stands. It was his job to sound the alarm when there was a fire. When telephone service became available either he or his wife would be at home at

all times to answer the call. In later years a staff of full time dispatchers known as engineers was hired to man the watch desk and maintain the equipment. World War II created a heavy burden throughout the nation, and the Vigilants experienced its share of problems caused by so many members serving in the military. To adapt to the times, there was no change of chiefs until after the war ended. As a result, Chief Frank Gilliar, Sr. served the longest term for a chief, 11 years from 1936-1947. During those years, the first women in the Vigilants helped to staff the ambulance service. Virginia Graham, a well known radio personality who lived in Great Neck, regularly drove the ambulance on calls. By the late 1950’s, the Vigilants had outgrown their original wood frame firehouse on North Station Plaza, and a new firehouse was built on Cuttermill Road in 1957. The property was donated by a widow who lived in an old house with a spire atop the hill which is now a parking lot. In return for her gift she was allowed to live in her house for the rest of her life, and it was the job of the engineers to check on her every day. Today, the original firehouse on North Station Plaza is a funeral home. The Vigilants continued as a progressive organization with the introduction of Plectron radios in the early 1960’s. These devices sound the fire alarm in the members’ homes or businesses and replaced a telephone calling chain performed by several members’ wives as a way to alert those who could not hear the sirens. Technical advancements allowed radios to become smaller in the 1970’s. Handie-talkies became the standard means to communicate on the fire ground. Also, personal pagers were implemented to call out members to alarms. In 1974, the traditional Cadillac ambulance was replaced with a “box” type ambulance as emergency medical services entered a new generation. Members of the Vigilants started training in 1975 and 1976 as emergency medical technicians at both basic and advanced levels. Advanced life support was introduced to Great Neck as life saving medications and cardiac defibrillation became routinely administered by the volunteers of the Vigilant Fire Company. As more tall buildings were built, the Vigilants saw the need for a second ladder truck, and a rear-mount 100 foot aerial ladder was purchased in 1976. Large diameter hose was also introduced to provide maximum water supply from hydrants to the pumpers. In 1977 the first “Jaws-of-Life” arrived; this powerful

hydraulic rescue tool allows firefighters to rapidly pry and cut their way to trapped victims. In 1979 the Vigilant Fire Company celebrated its 75th anniversary. A block party was held on Cuttermill Road in one of the few remaining vacant lots in the downtown area, and a parade was held which proceeded from Allenwood Road, down Middle Neck Road and then past the firehouse. But the “highlight” of the celebration was a major fire in a row of stores on Bond Street which happened just after preparations for the festivities had been completed. On September 10, 1981, the Vigilants responded to a building collapse at a local health club which had been converted from an auto dealership. First arriving firefighters learned that a woman was confirmed to be trapped in the swimming pool under the falling ceiling, and it was not known how many others might be inside. Debris was carefully cut away to gain access to the victim who was removed to the hospital with only minor injuries. An extensive search revealed that there were no other victims. A new mini-pumper, bought in 1985, gave firefighters rapid access to car fires which could happen in any of the numerous underground parking garages which are now common in Great neck. The Fire Police Squad was formalized to act as an integral support unit to firefighting operations; its sergeant is appointed by the Chief each year. A second ambulance was placed in service in 1983, and the Fire Medic Squad was formed in 1984. The squad allowed members to serve only in the medical operation of the Company without the need to train for firefighting skills. Women once again became an important part of the Vigilant membership, both as medics and as firefighters. To house the additional equipment a larger firehouse was needed. An addition which doubled the size of the Vigilants’ building was opened in 1981. In the early 1990’s, the Vigilant Fire Company was approached by the Village of Kensington to dispatch their police department, a service which continues today. Also in 1996, dispatch of the Manhasset-Lakeville Fire Department was started. In 2003, the Vigilant engineers dispatched a total of 4147 emergency calls. Training has always been a priority for the Vigilants starting with the first drills held at the home of Honorary Chief Vanderbilt. Regular classes and exercises are held each month, and the company attends classes at the Nassau County Fire Service Academy in Old Bethpage

G U I D E TO G RE AT N ECK • M A RCH 17, 2017

where drills with live fires are conducted in several special props which present typical fire situations. Other classes are held in technical rescue, vehicle extrication, hazardous materials, and firefighting tactics. Ambulance personnel are trained to at least the level of Emergency Medical Technician with many continuing on to Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and some to the Paramedic level. The new century saw the Vigilants continuing on the forefront with the latest in equipment and skills. Examples include computer-aided dispatch, thermal imaging cameras, and digital gas and atmospheric metering equipment to name a few. But the Vigilants’ darkest day came on September 11, 2001 when terrorists flew two airliners into the World Trade Center in Manhattan. The Vigilants quickly responded to the requests for help and units were assigned to the city immediately that morning and at various times for the next week. During that first afternoon, the tragedy hit home when word came that Vigilant First Assistant Chief Jonathan Ielpi, who was a New York City firefighter was missing. Chief Ielpi’s body was recovered from the rubble 3 months later. In 2002 a local park on Grace Avenue was dedicated to his memory, and a statue portraying him was unveiled in 2003 at a memorial devoted to Great Neck firefighters killed in the line of duty. The advent of terrorism within our nation’s borders brought a whole new dimension to firefighting. In addition to the standard firefighting and rescue skills, members must now be trained in response to incidents involving weapons of mass destruction and decontamination of large numbers of people. As Emergency Medical Services continued to grow and place even more of a strain on the Vigilant resources, a source for new members was found at the United States Merchant Marine Academy where students receive EMT training. Starting in 2003 members of the student body responded as part of the Vigilant cadre to assist those in need of help on the community. The Vigilants continue to move forward as they pass the milestone of 100 years of service. The business of firefighting has changed many times over the years, but the mission of helping those in need and the vital role of the Vigilant Fire Company remains the same. Today’s members, 144 strong, are a true demographic mix of people who come from every ethnic group found in Great Neck. And, they stand ready to serve their community with the same determination and spirit held by those of the original charter and incorporate the Vigilant Engine and Hook and Ladder Company No. 1, Inc. of Thomaston, New York.

Community is working to restore the Saddle Rock Grist Mill BY A L I C E K A ST E N President, Great Neck Historical Society Drive around the Great Neck area, and you will find signs pointing to the Saddle Rock Grist Mill. The mill, the property of Nassau County, used to be visited by school children who learned its history and brought home sacks of grain produced between its stones. But, unfortunately, no one has been able to visit lately and many have forgotten the importance of the mill. The Saddle Rock Grist Mill was built around 1700 to grind the grain that was produced on the farms that filled the Great Neck peninsula. Originally it

was used to grind corn, and that flour was then sold to the world markets. First owned by Robert Hubbs, Jr., it was sold to Henry Allen in 1702, and passed through the Allen family, eventually being sold to Richard Udall in 1833. The Udalls improved and updated the mill, using it to grind not only corn, but many other grains as well. They also used the mill as a dock for ships purchasing the products of Great Neck’s prosperous farms. The mill continued to pass through the Udall family, and eventually became the property of Louise Udall Eldridge, the same Louise Eldridge who helped to found the Great Neck Library, Park District, and Village of Saddle Rock. Mrs.

Eldridge restored the mill, and upon her death it became the property of the Nassau County Historical Society. It was deeded to Nassau County in 1955 to insure restoration. One of the few remaining tidal mills on Long Island, it is on the National Registry of Historic Places. The mill has been restored numerous times, most recently in 1992, but increasing natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, as well as decreasing funding have taken their toll. The mill, once the site of school field trips, has been closed for years, waiting the funding that will make it safe for visits. Nassau County received a $45,000 grant for architectural evaluation that was used to generate an en-

gineer’s report. That report shows that it will take hundreds of thousands of dollars to make the building structurally sound and, spurred by Great Neck Historical Society member and County Legislator Ellen Birnbaum, the county is actively seeking state and federal grants to meet that goal. Students at the Saddle Rock Elementary School have also written letters of support to the county. It is the hope of the Great Neck Historical Society that one day our children will be able to visit this important landmark. If your group would like a presentation about the Grist Mill, contact the Historical Society at greatneckhistorical@gmail.com.
