Town Focus: Day 4 in Farmingdale

To start Day 4, my second-to-last day in Farmingdale, I’ll be shooting video around the area for a project on Farmingdale’s history that you’ll see soon.

After that, I’ll head over to the public library at around noon to see artist Paul A. Gatto perform with his band. I’ll be bringing my camera, so wave if you see me.

Throughout the day, I’ll be near the Village Green, and walking up and down Main Street. If you see me, stop me and we’ll chat.

On Wednesday, I finally got the chance to have lunch at Library Café on Main Street, and ordered a marinated sliced steak sandwich with a side salad. It was delicious.

Thanks, Jessica, for emailing me your favorite dish at the Library Café. Even though the North Fork Grilled Cheese looked delicious, I don’t like goat cheese, so I decided to get a steak sandwich. Keep those suggestions coming!

Any more recommendations of places to eat on Thursday?

Friday I’m going to Saltzman East Memorial Elementary to see a hands-on science program for students. The “Mad Science Group” will help students learn and review science concepts, helping them to prepare for state tests in a fun way. Also, I will be meeting with Farmingdale Senior High School principal Glen Zakian on Friday.

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.
