On Day 3 of our weeklong focus on the Moriches, I’ll be getting to know the area a little bit better. You’ll find me walking around Main Street in Center Moriches, checking out the local shops, and visiting sites in the surrounding hamlets, like the old Jurgielewicz Duck Farm in Moriches.

I’d love to know what you think I should see, and maybe it will end up in our community photo gallery. You can pass on suggestions about your favorite places in the Moriches by email or Twitter.

Yesterday afternoon, I stopped by the Moriches Community Center and met with co-executive directors Kathleen Johnson and Anthony Parlato, as well as a handful of the teens who hang out there.

Look later today for a story on the center and how it’s grown in the last 12 years.

Throughout the day, you’ll meet more of the people that live and work here and make the community what it is.

Thanks for all your suggestions so far; you’ve given me a lot of running around to do!
