Thomas Power of Oyster Bay identified the June 25 mystery picture saying, “It is on Spring Street and Audrey Avenue. It looks like a 1929 Model-T Ford. The picture is taken right near Town Hall and Café Al Dente.”
Marg Buffa of Bayville said, “I love the old car. The picture is taken on the corner right by town hall in Oyster Bay, by the gazebo and is the corner of Audrey and Spring. There is Café Al Dente and not far from it, the Bonanza stand, where we love to get our hot dogs and Italian ices. It’s a wonderful area to sit and enjoy.”

We thought this mystery picture was truly unusual with art work by Oyster Bay High School students hung high on the wall.
At the June 16 Oyster Bay-East Norwich school board meeting, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Phyllis Harrington announced that reports in the press that the district saved $45,000 didn’t give the administrators full credit for the scope of the story. It was much better than reported!
Many people are working hard to make the hamlet of Oyster Bay a destination location and they are doing a great job. They are creating free events to bring people to the downtown area. On Sunday we visited the lovely brick patio behind Chrison & Bellina that was just revitalized. The flowing water fountain makes it a lovely space to stop and visit. There are some more ideas for the site being considered.
Bob Jackman called to identify the June 11 mystery picture. “It’s the garden outside of the Roosevelt Elementary School dedicated to my daughter Brooke. I want to thank the school district for taking such good care of the garden,” he said. The photograph was taken after the May 16 Brooke Jackman Run for Literacy. Mr. Jackman added, “I appreciate everything the community did for the 5K run. It was nice to see so many friends participating.”
Mary Dowling aced the June 4 Mystery Picture. She said, “It’s the Oyster Bay Water District building!”

Edna Standerwick called to identify the April 28 mystery picture. She said, “I was so surprised to see the picture that I had to call. It is the outside of our classroom at the Roosevelt School. We have the most beautiful wing in our school, the Kindergarten wing, and that is the outside of my classroom with all the flowers on it and when the children return from their music lessons I’m going to tell them all about it. About the excitement of having our classroom picture in the Enterprise Pilot.
Please read the letter to the editor submitted by Bayville Mayor Victoria Siegel about a new bill to allow villages to be dissolved.
She states: “The bills require a petition of 10 percent of the registered voters be submitted to the Village Board (20 percent under 500 voters). The question of dissolution must be submitted to the voters even though there is no plan for consolidation or abolition, nor any specifics for any cost savings to be realized, merely the generic notion that the consolidation or abolition should take place. The bills are silent on who may initiate such a petition. It would appear that any registered voter in the State could initiate a petition to consolidate or abolish a village. Consequently any disgruntled vendor who didn’t win a bid, a candidate who lost an election, a person fined in the Village Court, or a person who was accused of having an illegal two-family house and doesn’t live in your village could mount a campaign to abolish or dissolve a village.”
