Throughout the week, I roamed the streets, snapped pictures, talked to locals and got a feel for what it would be like to be a part of the Sea Cliff community.

Last night, I caught that sunset everyone told me about by covering the weekly Thursday night “Sunset Serenade” at Memorial Park.

Throughout the week, I came across the most interesting of characters. I was treated like I had lived in the village all my life, and I threw myself into soaking up the history of a place that I had only just become familiar with four days ago.

All in all, it was a great week for this community reporter and I hope you enjoyed the coverage. I’ll most definitely be back.

Today, I’ll be wrapping up a few things and heading to Sea Cliff Beach to check out the Sea Cliff Sailing Club’s summer camp for kids. Then I’m speaking to Irving Miller, 92, who spent most his life in Sea Cliff. I hear that he'll have tons of stories to tell.

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