Recreational boaters will find full-service marinas, a city yacht club, and a fully renovated launch ramp offering easy access to our refreshing North Shore waterways.
Tour at 6:30, Meeting at 7:30 in Henry Auditorium
Mayor Reginald Spinello today announced that the September 23, 2014 Glen Cove City Council meeting will be held at Webb Institute, 298 Crescent Beach Road. Prior to the meeting, the evening will begin at 6:30 with a tour of the facility offered by the students. Webb is a top-ranked undergraduate institution which is a true Glen Cove asset. The tour will be followed by the City Council meeting at 7:30 in the Henry Auditorium. Of note is that Webb Institute is celebrating 125 years of academic excellence and was ranked No. 2 this year on MONEY's List of “Best Colleges.”
“I would like to thank Keith Michel, the President of Webb Institute, for offering the City Council and our residents this great opportunity. It gives many of us who have never visited Webb a chance to experience a chapter in Glen Cove history,” said Mayor Spinello.
From Mayor Reginald Spinello
Just like this morning, on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 people went about their daily routine; they dropped off their children at school, maybe they traveled by train into Manhattan for work, or got on a flight for a business trip or a vacation, or reported for duty at the Pentagon. In an instant, everyone’s daily routine and everything we knew as normal was stolen from us by terrorists. Taken from their families were nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center; the passengers on American Airlines Flight 11; United Airlines Flight 175; American Airlines Flight 77; the staff at the Pentagon; and the passengers on United Airlines Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. Today we also pay tribute to the 343 New York City firefighters; the 23 New York Police Officers; the 37 Port Authority Police Officers; the 15 EMTs; and the 3 Court Officers who were killed that day.
