Belle Santora called to identify the mystery picture in the Dec. 24 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. She was still bright and cheery. She said, “Hello, this is Belle Santora at age 98 and counting! I recognized the picture and I knew last week’s too. This (Dec. 24) is one of the buildings on West End Avenue on the way to Beekman Beach. It is one of those blue buildings.” [It shows the staircase that leads into J building, the antique boat repair shop.]
NYS Senator Carl Marcellino, an environmental advocate sent a newsletter to his constituents about the “Launch of North Shore Medical Group Center for Excellence in Children’s Environmental Health.”
Gregory Adami identified the mystery picture in the Dec. 17 issue of the Enterprise Pilot. He said, “It’s taken down at Oyster Bay Harbor at Theodore Roosevelt Park, by the cement wall looking straight out at Centre Island. The wall is all fuzzed out, but I walked down to the seawall and took the same picture.”
Billy Minicozzi said the Dec. 10 mystery picture was a lot across from the Boys and Girls Club in Oyster Bay. On a sports note he said, “Tiger Woods will be back golfing in the Majors. I’m a big Tiger Woods fan. He will be up and going in April in time for the Majors to win another green jacket!”
Well, I think I can safely say the hamlet is getting three lovely presents this holiday season. The Angela P. Koenig Research and Collections Center is in the works; and the Octagon Hotel is coming along; and the Main Street Association is working with a NYS Main Street grant to restore 39/41, the White House on East Main Street, next to the Doubleday Babcock Senior Center, as well as several other grant projects in the works. They are the “Plus” in the headline.
Paul Keller of Bayville correctly identified the Dec. 3 mystery picture. He said, “It’s the traffic island on Route 106, opposite the post office on the east side and opposite the East Norwich Deli on the west side.
The hamlet of Oyster Bay is really coming together. Stores are filling up and while there is a lack of retail, since many of us today have new buying patterns such as malls, online shopping, catalogs, the hamlet appears to becoming a service-oriented cultural center.
Billy Minicozzi said the picture in the Nov. 19 issue was a secondhand store near Taby’s which was an interesting answer because Buckingham’s Variety Store is also the home of the North Shore Community Church Thrift Shop. Their prices are truly a blessing (cheap). He guessed the photo in the Nov. 26 issue was taken at a Bayville school.
It can be a loaded experience and one not everyone wants to put themselves through, but it is truly worth it for the benefit of the community and we thank all those who stand up and speak.
