  It was supposed to be a non-congested traffic day yesterday having redirected the route for the triathlon event which took place in the morning.  However an unexpected thing happened very early in the morning and the whole traffic system went awry. At about 3:30 A.M, I was awakened by a loud explosion which I thought for a while was coming from my airconditioner but I knew I did not turn on the airconditioner last night.  I was the last person to go to bed and I turned the ceiling fan instead.  Then I heard my husband say he knew it.  He said he heard a buzzing sound and true enough it sounded like a transformer blew up.  Within seconds, I heard the fire siren went.  We waited and looked at the back of the house.  I saw flashing lights from the next street behind us.  Then finally, I ...

Sale of condos/co-ops in Oyster Bay, NY is surging partly due to the economy and partly due to change in demographics.  As the population begins to age and children have moved out of their parent's home, homeowners are finding out that they cannot maintain their homes anymore.  Lawn maintenance and housekeeping are too much for them physically and financially.  However, they still want to stay in the area where they have lived for decades and know everyone.  So their only option is to downsize and the best choice is to find a condo, co-op or townhouse that fits the bill.     The sale of condos/coops/townhouses in Oyster Bay, NY is fairly stable or even improving.  In 2009, there were 17 condos/coops/townhouses sold in Oyster Bay for the whole year.  In 2010, so far as of July 27, there ...

Memorial Day has and always should be a day when we all take a moment to pay tribute to our veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in times of war to protect our freedom.  They perished in service to their country and for each and every man, woman, and child who calls the United States home.  Memorial Day, originated in a ceremony called Decoration Day in 1868 was originally observed as a memorial by the northern states to the Union soldiers who died in the Civil War.  Memorial Day became a federal holiday in 1971 and has been an annual tribute to those who have given their lives in service to their country.  May 30th was initially designated as Memorial Day but an Act of Congress moved Memorial Day to the last Monday in May. On this Memorial Day, and every day, may each and every on...

Mill Neck, NY is a village next to Oyster Bay and not all homes on Mill Neck, NY 11765 zip code are in the million dollar price range.  The area that is called Mill Neck is a whole mix of areas.  There are few streets very close to Oyster Bay which have a Mill Neck zip code and comparatively speaking have smaller houses on small property. Renville Ct. has a Mill Neck zip code but I will consider those as part of Oyster Bay.   It is on the boundary of Oyster Bay and Mill Neck.  Then there is the area called Mill Neck Estate which also have smaller lots and close to Bayville Bridge but mid-priced homes.  The rest are all located in what I will call the Mill Neck proper which has big mansions on huge properties.  Mill Neck is a lovely community with rolling hills and magnificent waterview ...
