Town Focus: Day 4 in Amityville
On Day 4 in Amityville, I'll meet with Pastor Louise Stowe Johns at the First United Methodist Church, where the sign outside welcomes the community to join them for a "Blue Christmas."
She told me that a Blue Christmas is a church service intended for those who for whatever reason may not be in the mood for the joyous tone of traditional holiday services.
Many people in Amityville certainly could fit into that category. Yesterday, I met with Mayor Peter Imbert and in addition to discussing his personal history in Amityville, he talked to me about the waterfront community during and after superstorm Sandy.
Today, look for those interviews as well as one with library director Nora Schual from yesterday, and a story and video on the history of Amityville.
If you still have suggestions for my time in Amityville, you can just manage to get them in. You can reach me by email, Twitter and in the comments below. Also follow along today via the Storify below.
