Diamond Wrote Lyrics While Walking Our Streets

Singer-songwriter Neil Diamond was born Jan. 24, 1941 in Coney Island. During Diamond’s youth, he spent time in Massapequa and at the south shore beaches during the summer months. It was in the early 1960s when Neil met Jaye Posner, a local school teacher. Jaye’s father operated a menswear shop in the former Bar Harbour Shopping Center. Diamond married Jaye in 1963. They had two daughters before they divorced in 1969. While they were married Neil and Jaye made their home in Massapequa’s Biltmore Shores section on Frankel Road. The one-and-a-half story wood framed home remains about the same as when the Diamonds lived in it. Some of its features include a loft-type second floor containing bedrooms, a living room with a wood burning fireplace and a finished basement where Neil did his composing. A large piano that he had built is said to be too large to be taken out and remains there. Neil played the piano while working on lyrics for his songs and music for his shows.
