Ann Marie Hosey was the first caller to identify the mystery picture in the July 7 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the bocce courts behind the Italian-American Club. We [she and her husband Pete] were there when you took the picture! And the truck in the background is down at St. Rocco’s feast right now!”
Another caller, but who missed leaving their name said, “Hey. I’m just calling about the mystery picture. It’s absolutely overlooking the bocce courts at the Italian-American Club. That’s all I have to say!” Right!
He said, ‘The thing about Oyster Bay is that unless you’re in it – you’re out of it.”
The mystery picture from the June 30 issue of the Enterprise Pilot remains a mystery, but we are sure you know what it is. Not having the answers is typical when the newspaper goes to press early. But, it’s always a hoot to get a few toots on the horn with stories about how you did recognize the photo.
Ginny Serringer said of the mystery picture in the June 23 Enterprise Pilot, “It’s Summit Street and South Street – I don’t know the name of the church but there it is by State Bank.”
FYI: the church is the Hood A.M.E. Zion Church.
Billy Minicozzi called to say, “It’s a brick church on South Street opposite Bernstein’s hardware store.” He said proudly, “The Bayville Fire Company won five trophies in the Old Fashion Drill Tournament.” On a sports note he said he hoped the stalemate in football will be over by the end of the month.
Billy Minicozzi guessed the photograph in the June 16 Enterprise Pilot was a street fair in Oyster Bay, near Town Hall. He’s got the location down pat!
“It’s the car show held every Tuesday night,” said Mary Dowling of Oyster Bay. “My husband was there every night when it started in our ’55 Chevy Belair when they were charging $3. Now they charge $5. We go but don’t bring the car.”
Belle Santora correctly identified the mystery picture in the June 9 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She said, “It’s the beautiful landmark building, Snouder’s Corner Drugstore just sitting there and I’m sick over it. Something has to be done with it. I’d like to see it like it used to be, with a number one telephone number in Oyster Bay. It was 922-0001. I’m not sure what the first two numbers were. [It might have been Walnut, the previous exchange name.] They used to deliver messages to Teddy because nobody there had a phone.
“I loved it when the Snouder’s had it and Dr. Hubbard was there and Julie, his daughter, who was in school with my son Joseph. They were like brother and sister.
“So Belle Santora knows Oyster Bay. I should. I came with the Indians! I want them to restore that corner!”
Billy Minicozzi said, “It might be the penny and nickel store in Oyster Bay.” He was looking forward to the upcoming fire district drill and parade saying, “Hopefully the Bayville firemen will win two trophies, one in the drill and one in the parade.”
Shelby Coates was the first caller to correctly identify the June 2 mystery picture in the Enterprise Pilot. Mr. Coates, a recent Oyster Bay resident said, “It’s the Life Enrichment Center during the book sale, which was held for two days. I bought a Reader’s Digest travel guide and a book on oceanography.”
Tom McGee, Jr. called on behalf of the Italian-American Citizens Club Blood Drive being held on Tuesday, June 21 from 3 to 9 p.m. at their headquarters at 48 Summit Street. “A spaghetti and meatball dinner will be served to all donors,” he said.
