Night Work this week on 2nd and 3rd Avenues by Wayne Avenue and South 6th Street

Night work will be performed on Tuesday and Thursday night (January 15th and January 17th) in and around the intersection of Third Avenue and Wayne Avenue and on Second Avenue at South 6th Street, just north of the tracks. The work will be done from 10:00 pm through 4:00 am the following morning. Lights and generators, trucks and personnel will be moving about the site.

Crews will be working to relocate electrical utility lines away from Covert Avenue, so they will not be in the way when reconstruction of the Covert Avenue crossing begins in March.

Dear Neighbors,

                Thanksgiving in New Hyde Park.  What a nice holiday this is – and how nice it is to enjoy the holiday. 

                This holiday seems to make the cold weather Ok.  Yes, it’s cold, but its Thanksgiving and somehow that makes it more bearable.  Maybe because the warmth from within us defeats the cold.  The warmth we feel when we take time out and bring the family together for a feast.  Differences are put aside, and we enjoy one another.  Thanksgiving really is a special holiday.  It’s a day when it’s not only Ok to overindulge but encouraged.  People get a pass from their diets on Thanksgiving.

Dear Neighbors,

Today we learned from 3TC, that they will begin taking down over 30 trees along Covert Avenue; north and south of the railroad grade crossing between First and Fifth Avenues.  They explained that the trees must be removed “…to make way for utility relocations in anticipation of the work on Covert AS WELL AS the under-grade crossing.”  3TC added that every tree removed off of the LIRR right of way will be replaced.  The tree removal may begin as early as Friday, October 26th.

Dear Neighbors.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude, admiration and respect for the New Hyde Park Fire Department.

Last week we had a terrible electrical storm rumble through New Hyde Park.  One of the impacts from that storm was a fire that erupted at the LIRR substation located on Third Avenue and South 9th Street.  The fire was apparently caused by a surge of electricity from the lightning storm.

Dear Neighbors,

I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Rainer Burger as the newest Village Trustee.  Rainer will serve in the seat vacated by the untimely and tragic loss of Trustee Don Barbieri.  In March of 2019 an election will be held to fill Don’s unexpired term; until March 2021.

While Don’s presence in the board room and around New Hyde Park will never be replaced, the gap he left on the Village Board necessitated that we find someone who can take up the workload.  I am very confident we found the right person to jump right in at a time when the demands on the village board has never been greater.

LIRR Update

Dear Neighbors,

                Although there are few outward signs, the Third Track Project is in full swing and in high gear.  The “early work” is being done that includes engineering designs, land surveys, soil samplings, etc.  Representatives from the design-build firm, Third Track Constructors or 3TC, will be conducting inspections of specific homes that are located close to the tracks to establish the existing condition of the foundations.  This is so any claims homeowners may make for damage due to vibration from the construction can be referenced against the pre-construction condition.
