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.]
“Last week’s photo was of the Boys and Girls Club building.” She added some words of wisdom in the form of a joke, “You know you are old when your knees buckle and your belt doesn’t.
“I have a million of them,” she said.
On the other end of the age spectrum of readers, Brendan Rainey of East Norwich called and said, “I know the mystery picture. It’s in Oyster Bay at the Oyster Bay beach.” That is a perfect description of the Western Waterfront area with West End Avenue leading directly to Beekman Beach, a Town of Oyster Bay beach.
