Town Focus: Day 3 in New Hyde Park
I’m halfway into my week in New Hyde Park walking throughout the community and meeting its residents, workers, business leaders and visitors.
We’ll start out today with a Q&A with Charlene Noll, director of Hillside Public Library, along with a story about local children learning about the ways animals find and eat food while we are decorating cookies with frosting and sprinkles at the library.
Today, I’m also meeting families at The Ronald McDonald House, a place for families to stay to be close to their seriously ill child undergoing medical treatment.
I might also be stopping by the New Hyde Park Fire Department on Jericho Turnpike to get a tour of the firehouse from one of its fire chiefs.
And on Thursday, I plan on talking with a representative from the UFC Gym, set to open this spring in New Hyde Park, to see how its arrival could impact the community.
On Friday, I’m meeting Dan Connor, of the Gladiator Fund, an organization founded in 1989 to raise money for medical care for local disabled children.
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions I've received so far.
On Tuesday, I thoroughly enjoyed the best slice of margherita that I have ever had. I was told by several people to have breakfast at Yesterday’s Diner, so that’s exactly how I’ll be starting my Wednesday. Any suggestions on where to eat lunch?
