LB City Council Democratic Party Primary Candidates’ Forum Hosted by League of Women Voters of Long Beach, NY will take place on June 10th (7PM) at the Long Beach Public Library (111 W. Park Ave, Long Beach, NY).
The Long Beach Island Landmarks Association (LBILA) will commemorate the loss of the 115 passengers and crew members when the ship Mexico wrecked on January 2, 1837, just two hundred yards off of Long Beach. The victims – most of them Irish immigrants – froze to death on the deck of the ship, within sight of the land of their dreams. The unveiling of a plaque near the spot where they perished will help us remember this terrible tragedy. Joining the LBILA are many local historical societies and community groups who want to share their connection with those who died that day.
For the past 20 years, the AOH of Nassau County and Historical Society of East Rockaway and Lynbrook have sponsored an annual ceremony at the victims’ gravesite in Lynbrook. The LBILA is pleased to host this year’s ceremony with the unveiling of a historic plaque on the boardwalk. Saturday, October 20, 2018 at 11 AM. On the boardwalk at Lincoln Blvd. in Long Beach, N.Y.
Join Central Synagogue – Beth Emeth for an interactive Shabbat service on the beach. Bring a beach chair and enjoy the beautiful sunset as we welcome Shabbat together on the sand.

Stand in solidarity with WORKERS, DISABLED, LOW-COME, COMMUTERS, CAR-LESS, DISADVANTAGED and ALL RESIDENTS and visitors on the barrier island who were affected by the CRUEL drastic bus cuts – people were denied their RIGHTS to a public meeting. RALLY and DEMAND our bus services be restored immediately.
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION should never be on the chopping block!!!
Adding insult to injury, the city has been using the municipal bus illegally for private charters at taxpayers expense, while everyday bus riders are left on the curb – ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
