Town Focus: Day 3 in Farmingdale

To jump-start Day 3, I’ll be meeting Farmingdale historian William Johnston at Village Hall on Main Street first thing in the morning. After, I’ll head over to the public library to look through its historical pictures archive to include in a video I’m putting together on the history of Farmingdale.

I will be walking outside mostly, taking pictures and shooting video. Try and spot me!

On Tuesday, I didn’t get a chance to stop in at the Library Café on Main Street, but did grab a late lunch at Cascarino’s down the street. Great pizza, by the way.

Today I’ll get to Library Café and grab some food. What’s your favorite on the menu? And, can anyone suggest a place for dinner?

Later this week, I’m planning to go to Saltzman East Memorial Elementary to witness a hands-on science program for students. The “Mad Science Group” helps students learn and review science concepts, as they prepare for state tests in a fun way.

Have any suggestions or comments? You can reach out to me by email or Twitter, and also follow me throughout my week in Farmingdale on Foursquare.
