Our Business Districts — Please Shop and Do Business in Garden City Shop and Dine in Garden City - Support the Local Merchants

I would like to ask you to do your part to support all businesses within Garden City.  I would also like to encourage all residents and professionals within Garden City to shop locally. Your patronage will be appreciated and is needed.

Many residents consider shopping and dining in our business districts as “experience shopping” because they meet friends and neighbors along the way and have an opportunity to interact with them. This is in stark contrast to frantically dashing through the crowds in the mall or the big box retailers.

It is my opinion that the quality of life in Nassau and Suffolk Counties and surrounding areas has greatly improved, culturally, with the construction and opening of Molloy College’s $28 million state-of-the-art Madison Theatre, where Broadway-quality performances are being presented on a regular basis, closer to our homes and at a great savings, compared to The Great White Way’s ticket prices.

Garden City Police Department Solves Burglary and Thefts

Based upon excellent detective work using DNA technology, Garden City Police detectives have been able to solve a burglary and numerous thefts from parked automobiles. On Feb. 12, Garden City detectives arrested a 34-year-old Brooklyn man for 29 thefts that occurred during the past five months within the Village. An alert police detective found evidence at the scene of one of the vehicle thefts, which DNA lab testing confirmed belonged to the subject. The detectives located the subject in Brooklyn and placed him under arrest. The subject was previously arrested by Garden City Police in 2010 for a theft from a vehicle on Arthur Street. Numerous other cases have been closed by this arrest and an investigation is ongoing to determine if the subject arrested was responsible for other similar vehicle larcenies committed within the village and in other communities within Nassau County.

McCarthy: ‘Pass Tax Cut for Millions of Americans’

Says bill will save over 1 million Long Islanders up to $1,500 this year

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, a vocal critic of the partisanship and gridlock that has delayed the passage of a payroll tax cut for middle class workers, voted today for a bipartisan bill to extend the tax cut through the end of 2012 and said that Washington needs to continue to work together to help struggling Americans.

The tax cut is expected to save middle class families over $1,000 – up to about $1,500 on Long Island – over the course of this year, according to McCarthy. Over 1.2 million Long Islanders, including 600,000 residents of Nassau County, are employed and may be eligible for the tax cut, according to information from the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.
