Editorial: Christmas Time At Covert Avenue

The hallways were strewn with garland. The tree was set up near the principal’s office and holiday cheer aplenty at Covert Avenue School during my time there. I remember being a solider in The Nutcracker and I recall all the pleasantries afoot during the holiday season in the building. From time to time, I recall those memories and, in a positive way, dwell on what was. An era I will cherish forever, Covert Avenue is a Christmas memory worth keeping.

Ever since she was a little girl, Floral Park resident, Maria Santangelo has had a way of making animals feel at ease. The 19-year-old college student worked with abused animals as a kid and currently volunteers as a kennel helper at the North Shore Animal League in Port Washington. She also has her own pet care and dog walking business in the village.

“I like making all dogs feel comfortable because every one of them has their own temperament,” said Santangelo who started her business two years ago with the help of her stepmother, Anne Marie. “I don’t push them but let them sniff me first so they get used to me.”

The largest event in the comic industry, Free Comic Book Day, is taking place on Saturday, May 3, at participating comic book specialty shops across the country and worldwide, including right at Floral Park’s own Superhero Comics.

“People can stop by any time,” said Superhero Comics owner Rich Brindisi. “I hope new customers stop by too and become life-long fans of comic books.”
