Readers Write: Manorhaven has never looked better!

The Island Now

My husband and I have lived in the Village of Manorhaven for almost 60 years.

We raised our three children here and wouldn’t want to live anywhere other than our beautiful village by Manhasset Bay. In all the years we’ve lived here, I’ve never seen it cleaner or better maintained than over the past four years that Jim Avena has been our mayor.

Not only are our streets and sidewalks cleaner, but the worst roads are finally being repaved, sidewalks and curbs are repaired and the sewer system is no longer being neglected.

Also, we waited for so many years for Morgan’s Dock to be finished and Mayor Avena got it done and it looks gorgeous.

The Nature Preserve used to be a parking lot with a gazebo. Now there are lovely trails along the shoreline, a great dog park, local plantings and the growing love garden near Fatima’s parking lot.


I want to thank Mayor Avena and the board and staff of Manorhaven for taking such good care of our village. I for one am voting on September 15 to re-elect Mayor Avena and his fellow candidates, Priscilla von Roeschlaub who is also running for re-election as trustee and Joe Zimbardi who is running for trustee for the first time.
