LONG BEACH NEWS: JULY 20TH EDITION [I really like the smell of old groin barnacles]

Long Beach News:

  • Last night was the South Nassau Communities Hospital Public Information Session, which included the Medical Arts Pavilion at Long Beach. Allison Blanchette, who is running for city council under the Green Party was in attendance and got the following information: “The LB Medical Arts Pavilion is a proposed 2-story structure that will be home to a free-standing Emergency Department that will include primary medicine, behavioral health, radiology, space for women and children services and medical subspecialties. It will have a floating dock and helicopter pad.” Thanks, Allison. She also took these photos. (Click on images for a larger view)

Long Beach News: July 17th Edition [it’s like déjà vu all over again]

News: LB and the vicinity 

Very old news: It’s like déjà vu all over again.

OPINION:

I wish a speedy recovery to the victims. We will all be praying for you!!

Last summer my wife was absolutely screaming at an officer who was speeding on the beach in one of these giant pickup trucks. He was also driving very close to the lifeguard mounds which have blind spots. There where little kids playing and running  around in the area. His destination didn’t seem urgent, as I watched him stop at the next beach over to talk to somebody he probably knew. I actually have a VIDEO of this ENTIRE EVENT somewhere WHICH I CAN PRODUCE, if need be. [update, the reason why I won’t post it is because it has my wife, who wishes to remain anonymous].

Tomorrow’s City Council Agenda has the following: “Resolution Authorizing the City Manager to Purchase Two All-Terrain Vehicles for the City’s Lifeguard Patrol and Two All-Terrain Vehicles for the City’s Police Department.”

It makes me wonder if we’ll see more of these smaller sized vehicles on the beach in the future. The Boardwalk as well. We obviously need police patrol and protection, but small has to be the way to go with vehicles. I can imagine being so disconnected to my surroundings driving around in a big truck in a densely populated area. Isn’t that why they have horse mounted officers in NYC? It’s not because it’s quaint.

Nassau County Talk:

Our Senator Todd Kaminsky attended the Belmont Park redevelopment listening session last night in Elmont.

My feeling on this whole issue is the following: A technology incubator, which was suggested, is going to fail. Millennials do not want to work in a gated-corporate parks. Build a tech incubator off a growing downtown like Westbury, Farmingdale or Mineola.

The only logical development for Belmont would be a new arena for the New York Islanders. Traffic will not be an issue, considering the Islanders average around 13,000 a game, while Belmont Racetrack, particularly the stakes attract much more (120,139 in 2004 – LINK).

What to do with the current ‘lipstick on a pig’ Nassau Coliseum? I get it. Building a new area at Belmont would be in direct competition with that dump in Uniondale. Nassau should turn the coliseum into a convention center, build another hotel near by on that property and call it a day. Just my 2 cents. Nobody is excited about the Long Island Nets, so keeping it as an arena is a waste. Sorry, Ratner.
