“Yo, shell and stick guy get a job.” These are the words scrawled on the fence at the beach entrance. The fence, built years ago to keep vehicles from further eroding the steep access, has been wrecked once by a storm and several times by people.

The whole family — parents, older brother, grandparents, aunts, uncles — were Republican, and at the dinner table all I heard was that Roosevelt was “a traitor to his class.” This puzzled me from the start, because Roosevelt was clearly upper class and we were not. We were middle class; we owned a small house, my father commuted to his job in New York City, we were comfortable but we drove a modest car, a Plymouth. We had no servants. I must have taken it to heart, because when Roosevelt died, I heard ... by Anthony Brandt

VIEWPOINT: Providing Housing for Veterans in Need Is New York Doing Its Duty

BY RALPH FASANO Long Island’s housing crisis gravely impacts our neighbors who have sacrificed to preserve our freedom and keep us safe: the brave men and women who have served in the U.S. armed forces. As is the case in communities everywhere, our returning veterans struggle with myriad challenges — including finding affordable housing and often managing lingering mental health challenges, like post-traumatic stress disorder. Our responsibility as a community is to ensure that those who have sacrificed for us have access to high-quality resources when they return from service. One way to do that is to create and upkeep ... 2 Oct 2023 by RALPH FASANO
