Congratulations To All The Outstanding Athletes — Garden City High School
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate all of the outstanding student athletes who played for the Garden City High School teams. It is truly a testament to the students for all of their hard work and dedication to not only their school work but the team that they played on.
Shop And Dine Outdoors In Garden City
The residents of Garden City are very fortunate to have viable retail businesses on Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road where there is a good variety of quality merchandise and family dining experiences available to be enjoyed.
Please support these businesses and enjoy the products, variety and outstanding customer service. Keep in mind that these merchants save you from traveling outside the Village for your needs. Consider the harsh reality if we did not have these businesses here to service our needs. I look forward to seeing everyone in the business districts.
