11. Committee to Save St. Paul’s Presents Restoration Plan To Village Board

The Committee to Save St. Paul’s (CSSP) restoration plan for one of Garden City’s few remaining historical treasures was the focal point of the public work session Oct. 6 at Village Hall. According to the CSSP, the Cathedral School of St. Paul’s is an irreplaceable landmark and a world-class asset for the Village of Garden City, which should be enjoyed for generations to come when renovations are completed. The CSSP’s goal is to stabilize the building, preserve its historic features wherever possible, and provide the public with a space that will be an active community activities and events center. CSSP President Peter Negri said that the annual average cost to Garden City residents would be less than $100 and funding for the St. Paul’s Restoration Project will be sought through public and private grant sources, tax credits and private donations. The CSSP’s proposal has yet to be voted on by the board of trustees.

Garden City’s Own Nelson DeMille Talks to Garden City Life

Written by Marilou Giammona Friday, 30 December 2011 00:00

For this best-selling author, there is no place like home

Christmas came early for this Nelson DeMille fan. In years past, bounding down the stairs behind my children on Christmas morning to find a Nelson DeMille novel on the top of my gift pile, or to see one peeking out from my stocking, was enough to put a smile on my face. But this year, on Dec. 11, I was granted a special wish: to sit down and chat with the man behind such famed characters as John Sutter, John Corey and Kate Mayfield.

I was introduced to DeMille’s novels back in 1991, as I commuted to work aboard the LIRR. As I sat in my seat, I recall seeing several other passengers engrossed in the same book, The Gold Coast.  My interest was piqued, so I purchased a copy. Before long, I wasn’t traveling through Woodside, Forest Hills and Kew Gardens to pick up the Hempstead line but was transported to “the Gold Coast, that stretch on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America.” I was hooked.

 

GC Residents Pledge $11,300 Donation for St. Paul’s Repairs

Trustees vote to reject Committee to Save St. Paul’s Offer

In the true spirit of the holiday season, Garden City Mayor Donald Brudie announced at the Dec. 15 board meeting that residents Bob and Pat Kaliban offered a gift to the village of $11,300 to pay for repairs to the roof and clock tower on St. Paul’s main building after it was damaged by Hurricane Irene in August. However, the feeling of “goodwill towards men” soon dissipated as the board trustees became inflamed during arguments over procedural matters and whether or not donation should be accepted by the village for public property.

Holding a cashier’s check in hand, the mayor read a letter from the Kalibans regarding the donation: “We are truly saddened, and at the same time, incensed that out trustees do not see fit to even repair storm damage to the main building of St. Paul’s. It’s difficult to watch an elected group of men dance around the semantics of the situation while allowing water damage to further destroy the interior of so stately an edifice.”
