The new performing arts theatre in Westbury known as The Space is a huge attraction revitalizing our downtown community. This is part of the magnet that has been needed to draw back people to the downtown after having left us for the past twenty or more years for Roosevelt Field; Corporate Drive and Fortunoff’s Shopping Center, among others. The Village of Westbury, its former Mayor Ernest Strada and it current Mayor Peter Cavallaro together with our Village Board deserve very substantial credit for staying the course, having foresight and developing a plan with the new owners that will generate enormous vitality into the community. The $10-million invested has created a beautiful venue that will generate revenue for the owners and our entire downtown. Our hats are off to them and all responsible for a job well done.
