Glen Cove has something for everyone. We offer magnificent beaches, a scenic golf course and lovely tree-filled parks, providing our residents with a summer vacation paradise in their own backyards. 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.
Mayor Reginald Spinello advises Glen Cove residents that fire hydrants are going to be opened in the beginning of October for the semi-annual flushing of dead-end water mains. This is to get rid of accumulated dissolved mineral sediments in the water mains.
During the hydrant flushing period, residents may detect some water pressure fluctuation and water discoloration. The discoloration poses no health risk. Customers may choose to keep a supply of clear water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking during periods of any discoloration in the water. Thank you all for your patience.

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.
Drive Safely Schools Are Open: Glen Cove students have begun their school year. Please obey the law and drive safely.
