Town begins Schumacher House renovations

After more than a decade of preparation, restoration work has begun in New Hyde Park on a historic farmhouse dating from the 1700s. Schumacher House has suffered substantial water damage, town officials said, and it will take a year to dry out before moving onto phase two. Supervisor Judi Bosworth on Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017 said the house will likely become a museum and public meeting space. (Credit: Newsday / Chris Ware)
