New Editorial: The New Bellport Village Street Signs


This past weekend, we took a ride to Smith Point to watch some of the annual 5K Run for Literacy held by the Literacy program at the Shirley Library. On the way back, I wanted to head east on Montauk Hwy so I made a right off of William Floyd thinking I could head northeast through Mastic Beach and Shirley. Big mistake! Have you ever tried to do that? Whoever laid out those roads must have been drunk as a skunk, but I digress.

Anyway, in trying to navigate the Mastic Beach/Shirley maze, I discovered they are already using the white, vertical, street signs that are being proposed for Bellport Village and although I didn’t have strong feelings one way or the other before the experience, I sure did afterwards.

New "Ambling Around Brookhaven Hamlet" Walking Tour Posted

Walking Tours

In 2014, a wonderful book, “Ambling Around Brookhaven Hamlet, Self-Guided Tours of Our Historic Hamlet and Its Hospitable Habitat,” was created by some wonderful people, Anita Cohen, Martin, “Marty,” Van Lith, and John Deitz of The Fire Place History Club. The book has been updated, added to, and is now, 2017, in its Second Edition. It should be noted that the project was made possible by a grant obtained by Suffolk County Legislator Kate Browning for the First Edition of the book.

When we learned of the book, we approached Marty Van Lith and asked if we might reproduce the book, in serial form, on and share it, free of charge, with our readers. Marty gave us an enthusiastic go ahead as that was the whole point, to get information about Brookhaven Hamlet into as many hands as possible.

The next walking tour has been posted. This time it's a walking tour of the Post-Morrow Foundation Trail System. This tour also includes maps of Brookhaven Hamlet. Click here for more information.
