A wild tropical-style rain and windstorm that hit the New York area on Sunday night did particular damage to several Roslyn neighborhoods.
At about 7:00 p.m. on July 26, several large trees were blown over in the Marchant Park area of Roslyn.
Longtime Roslyn resident Alice Maloney claims she “never wanted to be 100.” But the big day is coming and on Saturday, Aug. 22, Garden Cleaners in Roslyn Heights will host the 100th birthday party for Alice, who has now spent over half of her long life in Roslyn.
Anthony Porretto, student at Fordham University and a friend of Ms. Maloney recently interviewed Alice about the secrets to her amazing longevity, and passed along the information to The Roslyn News.
On Wednesday, Aug. 5 Ellen Russell will be giving a book signing at Sterling Glen of Roslyn, one designed to promote her latest book, Roslyn.

At its annual reorganization meeting, held on Thursday, July 9, the Roslyn Board of Education elected officers for the 2009-10 school year and welcomed its newest member.

A road resurfacing project may be coming to the Village of Roslyn Estates.
Last month, the village’s board of trustees approved a bond resolution for road resurfacing and reconstruction at residential areas of the village.
The estimated maximum cost of the project is $900,000. “The object…for which the bonds are authorized is the reconstruction and resurfacing of various roads in the village, including ancillary work,” the resolution stated.
Work has begun on the long-awaited restoration of the athletic fields at the Roslyn Middle School. The large-scale project will include reconfiguration of the playing fields and tennis courts, installation of a new running track, and improved drainage and irrigation.
In addition, a new exit from the middle school onto Locust Lane is expected to alleviate a serious problem with traffic congestion in the parking lot during times of student arrival and dismissal. Additional parking is also being constructed. Once this part of the project is completed, a new fence and landscaping will be installed, including planting new trees to replace some of those that had to be cut down for the construction.
Franklin Hill Perrell has been named as the new Executive Director for the Roslyn Landmark Society.
Perrell, a graduate of Hofstra University, is well known for his previous activities as Chief Curator of the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn Harbor. Shortly after the museum was privatized in 1989, Perrell began as museum educator responsible for training the docent guides, and then becoming successively Associate Curator, Curator, and Chief Curator. He was instrumental in organizing such well received exhibitions as Louis Comfort Tiffany and Stanford White, The Age of Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt and the WPA, Mort Kunstler and the Civil War, and over 40 other major exhibitions, often blending history with art, since 1991.
Dr. Dan Brenner joined Roslyn Public Schools in 2005 as assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. As it turned out, that job would be a stepping-stone to the biggest position in the school district: That of superintendent.
The retirement of Dr. John A. Richman as superintendent came as a surprise to most residents of the school district. Dr. Brenner would only say that the turn of events “happened very quickly,” adding that he was “honored that the board of education would think of me in this way.”
