It’s my final day in Great Neck, as part of our monthly Town Focus series.

I can say that my week has been filled with exploring new places, getting in touch with the community on a closer level and teasing my taste buds with tantalizing foods at lunchtime.

I learned more about the history of Great Neck than I could have ever imagined with the help of Alice Kasten, president of the Great Neck Historical Society, and Jonathan Aubrey, a librarian at the Great Neck Library.

Also, I couldn’t have asked for more helpful mayors than Ralph Kreitzman from Great Neck Village and Jean Celender from Great Neck Plaza.

Feel free to check back for the history story on Great Neck, which should go up soon, and also a feature on the Great Neck Alert Fire Company.

Thank you for your suggestions this week and I hope you continue to follow our coverage of your community. I will most definitely be coming back.

Again, if you have any questions, concerns, or you just want to reach out to me about a news tip, please contact me via email, Twitter, or the comments below.
