The program will be held on Wednesday, August 29, 2012 at the Atria of Roslyn, 100 Landing Road, Roslyn. A summer barbeque will begin at 6:00 PM on the Atria waterfront patio followed by the lecture at 7:45 PM.Weather permitting: The 1909 Alco Black Beast racer will also be on display.

The program cost is $25 for Roslyn Landmark Society members and $30 for non-members.  To register, contact the Roslyn Landmark Society at 516-625-4363 or [email protected].

Here is a preview of several "Then & Now" Images in the presentation.

Hi Howard, in cruising up toward Roslyn today I noticed the 25 MPH speed zone just south of Main Street, is there actual photo enforcement on those ? Mike
From Howard Kroplick

The Nassau County Legislature has repealed the Speed camera law. However, the law will be enforced until County Executive Ed Mangano signs the repeal.
