Today is the first of five days that I will be taking a closer look at Sea Cliff, an incorporated village in Nassau County that sits on top of a 120-foot bluff overlooking the North Shore, as part of our ongoing Town Focus series. I'll meet with one of the village historians and stop by the Sea Cliff Museum.

As the week goes on, I will be meeting with the director of the museum and also the director of the Children’s Library, formerly known as the Stenson Memorial Library, one of the 11 oldest public libraries in Nassau County.

You’ll also catch me checking out Sea Cliff Children’s Library Lego Club and a children’s book reading at the beach.

Also, stay tuned for a look into the rich history of the village’s fire department, which has been in service since 1884, and a pre-1987 car show and sunset serenade, among other things.

But my favorite part of the day will be lunch, so I’m going to need your help. Any suggestions on where to go will be greatly appreciated. And menu suggestions are just as vital.

At every step along the way, I welcome your input. Tell me what you think of the coverage, what you would like me to find out and where I should go. You can reach me via email, Twitter and the comments below.

Also, and keep up with my travels all day below.
