Editorial: Don’t Take Massapequa For Granted

When I interviewed Tim Van Patten, executive director of Boardwalk Empire, about growing up in Massapequa, I was amazed when he told me that he has encountered folks in Los Angeles who know of Massapequa.

When you live in a community and encounter all that it has to offer on a daily basis, it is easy to take it for granted. Don’t take the Massapequas for granted. We have many wonderful shops, beautiful parks, a golf course, and even a preserve running right through the middle of our communities. And if all of that is not enough, Bethpage State Park is just a stone’s throw away. As we enter the winter months, stop by Bethpage and go sledding (if we get snow), walk through the preserve on a crisp, winter day, take a walk around the track at Burns Park or enjoy a cup of hot chocolate at one of our fine establishments. We have many great things in Massapequa. Enjoy!
