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.”

There are some more ideas for the site being considered.
