Written by Tab Hauser, oysterbay@antonnews.com Thursday, 09 October 2014 00:00

Despite the rainy weather, approximately 65 people turned out for an unusual art fundraiser held on Centre Island for the benefit of Oakcliff Sailing Center last month.

The event started with guests boarding a boat  in Oyster Bay Marine Center for the scenic ride over to the home of Betsy and Hunt Lawrence on the south side of Centre Island. Here, spread throughout their home, their 1906 restored Cypress wood greenhouse and their 4.5 acres were nearly 40 pieces of art for sale. Visitors were given a “treasure map” of the grounds that highlighted the art amongst it.

Long Island’s Most Scenic Drive

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi, oysterbay@antonnews.com Thursday, 02 October 2014 00:00

With a general discontent about the view-blocking pedestrian railings recently installed along West Shore Road, the discussion at the Oyster Bay Civic Association meeting on Sept. 18 focused on the possibility of having the road designated as a scenic highway.

This concept was suggested by Gregory Druhak of Centre Island, a regular traveler along West Shore Road, who said, “I believe this is the most scenic drive on Long Island west of the Hamptons, perhaps on all of Long Island itself, and it is not being treated as such. I feel we are being given the Lefferts Boulevard [down by JFK airport] expressway extension instead. For all you can see, it might as well be the Belt Parkway below the fence instead of Oyster Bay. This is wrong.”  

 

Oyster Fest Welcomes The Amistad

Written by Dagmar Fors Karppi, oysterbay@antonnews.com Saturday, 27 September 2014 00:00

This year you can expect to see the Freedom Schooner Amistad, Connecticut’s flagship, tied up on the Western Waterfront Pier at the Oyster Festival on Oct. 18 and 19. The ship is a Baltimore Clipper that is 129 feet in length and weighs 96 tons. Its home port is New Haven, Conn.

The tall ship visits ports worldwide, as an ambassador for friendship. It serves as a floating classroom, icon and monument to many souls that were broken or lost as the result of the transatlantic slave trade.

The original Amistad, which means friendship in Spanish, was made famous in 1839 when 53 African captives (men, women and children) transported from Havana revolted against their captors. The captives gained control of the ship under the leadership of Sengbe Pieh, later known as Joseph Cinque, who commanded the ship’s navigator to return them to Sierra Leone. Instead, the ship headed north, landing in Long Island, and was taken into custody by the United States Navy.
