Theresa Varricchio Knows Oyster Bay

Theresa Varricchio called to identify the mystery picture in the Oct. 6 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the Oyster Bay Water District parking lot opposite Verrelli’s Market. She added, “My husband used to work there.”

The Varricchio name is big in plumbing in Oyster Bay!

 

Editorial: Viva La Festivale de Ostrica!

This last weekend we visited Beekman Beach twice, as did many other local residents. It was as if they were getting use of the waterfront area this week, before the Oyster Festival takes it all over on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15 and 16 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Some Oyster Bay residents, not unlike the residents of Venice, Italy, (as told from the over 17 mystery books written by Donna Leon about Inspector Guido Brunetti – and available from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Public Library) while the residents of Venice love the financial benefit of the tourists, they don’t love the crowds. [If you want to read her wonderful books that are a lesson in the beauty of Venice, start with Death at La Fenice.]

Belle Santora Knows Oyster Bay

Belle Santora was looking at the Mystery Picture in the Sept. 29 issue of the Enterprise Pilot and saw the photo from the week before. “Look at those shiny shoes. The picture was really fun. [It was taken of the firefighters standing during the 9/11 ceremony at the Western Waterfront.]

“Now what this week’s picture looks like to me is that building at the Western Waterfront where they have the Christeen. That’s what I think it is. I’m so tired of being right. I’m 100 years – I should be right,” she said laughing.

 

Editorial: Good Things Happening at TR Park

Things are looking up at TR Memorial Park. There will be a Guinness Book of World Records event there on Sunday, Oct. 9 and on Thursday, Oct. 13 the Pearls of Oyster Bay installation will be put into place next to the new gazebo overlooking the beach.

This will not be the opening of the new multisport field, it was the only place in the township that Craig Pinto could use for his event, without displacing other teams already using the town’s sports locations.

Eileen Aliani Knows Oyster Bay

Eileen Aliani, secretary of the Committee for the Beautification of Oyster Bay identified the mystery picture in the Sept. 22 issue of the Enterprise Pilot and said, “It’s taken at the 9/11 Memorial Ceremony in Oyster Bay. I saw all those feet and everybody in suits and I knew.”

Calling from the Summit Street Deli, Colleen Bagan put her answer a little differently, saying, “Is that the firemen at the Memorial?” “Perfect,” we said.

 

Editorial: Don’t Pick on the Oyster Festival!

Friday, 30 September 2011 00:00
Unfortunately when Island Harvest Advisory Board member Loretta Sehlmeyer wrote a letter to the editor that was published in the Newsday September 22 edition, the newspaper used a photograph of the Oyster Festival oyster eating contest with the Explore LI cover story about competitive eating as an example of their headline, “Gluttony in bad taste.”

Ms. Sehlmeyer wrote in her letter to the editor, “As soon as I saw the Explore LI cover story “Fast Food. The voracious world of competitive eating [Sept. 13), I knew I’d be writing this letter. I am repeatedly disgusted when I see stories on this most repulsive ‘sport’.”

Belle Santora Knows Oyster Bay

The delightful Belle Santora called about the picture in the Sept. 15 issue. She said, “I just turned the page of my copy of the Enterprise Pilot and saw the mystery picture. I was there the day this man was painting at Beekman Beach. Arthur and I were talking to him.”

She added, “I knew the picture last week but I didn’t get around to calling but that’s all right - other people got it.”

 

Editorial: Please Make the History Filled Trousdell House Dream - a Reality

Friday, 23 September 2011 00:00
It was a great opportunity to experience the potential of the Trousdell House at the Thank You Reception for supporters on Sunday Sept. 18. The North Shore Land Alliance and the Oyster Bay Preservation Roundtable thank you party was for people who responded to their invitation to a “Shadow Ball.” The tongue-in-cheek event invitation said the Shadow Ball would be held “Thursday evening, April 35, in the Ballroom of the Oyster Bay Opera House, 15000 Cove Road, entrance via the Oyster Bay to Rye Bridge.” It explained a total of 600 cards of admission at $100 each (or 60 for $1,000) were available for this event to raise funds that are needed for emergency repairs to the Adelia & Cornelius McCoon House (a.k.a. the Trousdell House or Hillside). The several names for the house indicate the many layers of history the house encompasses.

Paul Keller Knows Oyster Bay

Paul Keller of Bayville identified the mystery picture in the Sept. 8 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s the rear of the building on Audrey Avenue and Spring Street. It is opposite Al Dente which is across the street.”

He is correct. The photo was taken the Sunday after Hurricane Irene and shows the water still draining out of the parking lot.

 

Editorial: The Good Wins Over the Bad

Friday, 16 September 2011 00:00
This past weekend, Sept. 10 and 11, was a tribute to the best of man and a reminder of the worst depths man can descend into.

The Atlantic Steamer Fire Company arranged to obtain a piece of the World Trade Tower which is now in a beautiful memorial garden next to their marine facility at the Theodore Roosevelt Park. It is a wonderful addition to Oyster Bay and for the world. You must go see it.
