I thought this picture very fitting to what many of us are wishing for this New Year. Sandy literally washed us away in 2012. We have come together as a community to rebuild all homes but also our hopes and dreams. 2013 represents not only our future but endless unknowns for many of us! My hope is that it brings the best of health and a year of restoration both mentally and literally!

Today we are living in the aftermath of a Hurricane. The effects of Hurricane Sandy have been devastating to all South Shore residents. We were part of a mandatory evacuation. Police told people if they stayed they should put their social security number on their arm with a sharpie.

Our friendly bay village is in a state of shock. The tides have yet to recede from the streets. I have reports back that water was pouring from windows. I personally have friends that have a sailboat through their windows. Another source stated that one of my neighbors drown in their own home.

My own damage will be dealt with. My boys are safe. Our world is upside down. We will need help from family and friends. Thank you for your offers will will take you up on them I promise.

Continue to be safe a pray. The devastation is severe!

It is never too early to start preparation for a possible storm. With that please send out a message to members asking them to please start some preparation for the possibility of some bad weather heading our way. Attached is a NOAA hurricane map that shows the possible track over our area. This is not to panic our residents but to give them adequate time to prepare their homes, boats and make a go bag. Please stay tuned to the weather and check the Village web site over the weakened for any Village updates we may give. The Village is starting our preparation for this bad weather event. We urge all residents to sign up for Suffolk County Code Red. This can be done directly from the Village Web page. Amityville.Com then put cursor over Emergency Management and select Suffolk County Code Red. By registering to code red you will be linked to the latest news form Suffolk County Emergency Management. Again we are looking for our residents to stay informed and make some preparations for what looks like some bad weather and possible flooding.

Thank You

Chief Donald J. Dobby Jr.

Many of the homes in Long Island are some form of a Cape.  It may be a dormer, half dormer, or not at all…the possibilities are endless as to what you may actually see when you walk up the stairs.  Traditional Homes magazine recently put out some fantastic bedrooms and this one in particular struck me.  It is very difficult to set up furniture in rooms where the ceilings slant down and there is not full ceiling height.  This picture has a great layout for this situation.  Try re-arranging your furniture and see if you can’t get a little more style in your bedroom.

I had my first conversation with a Vet who is coming home to Long Island after serving our country.  I was a little tongue-tied at first not quite sure how to express my gratitude to all that he has given.  I am sure I will find more words on Saturday when I meet him face to face!  He asked me about a program to help vets purchase a home and I thought I would share this information for anyone else who may know a returning veteran and how this can help them.


The Town of Babylon has grants available for Veterans seeking to purchase.  Grants of up to $10,000 can be used for down payment and/or closing costs.  Vets must have served on active duty since October 7, 2001.
