This week the Great Neck Public Schools welcome all of the students, from pre-K through high school seniors, back for another enriching school year. We thank the school district for its dedication and high level of individualized education. And we wish each student a happy and productive school year.
The Great Neck Library lost a champion and friend with the passing of Naomi Feldheim. She was a volunteer on the Building Advisory Committee and served many years on the Nominating Committee. Naomi consistently made herself available to the Library, generously sharing her expertise, knowledge and ability to communicate with various parts of the community. She never said no to anything needed that would promote the future and goodwill of the Great Neck Library. She worked tirelessly for the renovation of the main building. Naomi Feldheim, with her gentle personality, wit and humor will be sorely missed.

Ellen Birnbaum has been my colleague as a zone leader in the Democratic Party for the past eight years. She has done an outstanding job in this capacity and has always extended a helping hand when needed. Ellen has had a long history of participating in government. She has worked as a legislative assistant for Lee Seeman and Anthony Durso. In her current job as director of inter-municipal coordination she has been able to successfully manage the distribution and sharing of information and events among the many levels of government in North Hempstead.

My name is Patrick Silberstein the president/owner of the Thomaston Building located in the village of Great Neck Plaza at 8 Bond street. The building is listed in the National
Register of Historic Places. As someone deeply committed to the maintaining and preservation of structures with historical significance, architecturally and socially, I was alarmed to read in last week The New York Times that the sale of the property in which the house, Inisfada, is set might involve the demolition of this beautiful and culturally important dwelling.
Believe it or not, the summer is more than half over and those back-to-school days loom closer everyday. Like it or not, camp will be over in no time at all and summer vacations will speed by in a flash! And then, before we know, it’s back-to-school time, along with that long list of necessary school supplies.
As a Great Neck resident, I am appalled at what is happening when a hookah lounge can be thrust upon a residential community. The first notification that I, and many members of the community received regarding a hookah lounge was an article by Carol Frank in the July 24 issue of the Great Neck Record.
My wife and I moved to the Baker Hill section of Great Neck approximately three years ago.
We have two young children, and moved here for the wonderful schools, great parks, ease into Manhattan for work and because of how safe the area is.
We have been very happy here, except for one significant problem: the dangerous drivers on Middle Neck Road.
The warm sunny days of summer are still here and these days are perfect for enjoying the outdoors. And, for many of us, that means sports --- tennis, golf, swimming, biking, ball games, just to name a few. Children and adults join lively summer teams, camps provide all sorts of sports activities for youngsters, and country clubs proudly sport their own teams too. How about sharing some of this sports news with your neighbors!
The Great Neck Record loves local news, and so we would love to feature stories and photographs about your teams and leagues, your club, or your children’s camp sports. Just send us the copy and we will take care of the rest.
Our sports pages are waiting for you!

By now, you are well aware of the Great Neck community’s anger over the episode of Bravo TV’s Princesses: Long Island that was shot at the Firefighters’ Memorial at one of our local parks.
The Board of Commissioners and staff of the Great Neck Park District, owner and operator of that park, share the community’s anger.
