Town Focus: Day 2 in Farmingdale
Day 2 in Farmingdale kicks off with a stop at Paul Gatto’s art gallery on Main Street to see his latest work and to learn more about Farmingdale from the perspective of a local artist and longtime resident.
Did you know that the painting hanging from the wall at the side entrance of the Farmingdale Public Library is one of his works?
The painting depicts a colorful tree, which Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce president Debbie Podolski said is supposed to mirror the phrase “to grow is to know and to know is to grow.”
For lunch, I think I’ll try out the Library Café on Main Street. I’ve heard only good things. Can anyone suggest a scrumptious place to eat on Wednesday?
If it’s nice out, I’ll stop by The Village Green, which is across from Village Hall, and a popular place where many residents bring their lawn chairs to relax and read.
On Wednesday, I’ll be meeting with Farmingdale historian William Johnston at Village Hall and then head back to the library to look through its historical pictures archive.
On Thursday, I’ll sit down with Farmingdale school Superintendent John Lorentz, discussing the school system and his background.
