Mural of Huntington Harbor on New York Avenue

This 20' x 40’ mural depicts Huntington Harbor and resides on the rear wall of the Huntington Waldbaums Supermarket, which can be seen at the back of the municipal parking lot property on the west side of the 200 block of New York Avenue. This wonderful piece of public art covers a 4500 square foot wall. The mural is composed of twenty-nine 5x28 foot polytab cloth panels, painted by student art apprentices from Project EXCEL.  Next time you park there, check out what teen art apprentices created!

Life Jacket for the Day

Did you know that you can borrow a life jacket for the day?

Thanks to a partnership between Clare Rose and Sea Tow, the Town of Huntington was provided with over 45 life vests through Sea Tow’s “Life Jacket Loaner Program.” These life jackets are provided free of charge. 

All boats are required by law to have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket for each person on board. Those who take advantage of the program are asked to return the life jackets at the end of their day.

Kayak Racks at the Town of Huntington's Senior Beach House at Centerport Beach

A few years ago, participants of the Town’s Senior Center were asking for a place to launch or secure their kayaks during the warm weather months at the Centerport Senior Beach House. Shortly after, a kayak rack was installed, and a second rack was installed due to the success of the program.

The kayak racks are available from the Friday before Memorial Day through October 31.  Current boat rack users need to re-register by February 28. To learn more about this kayak rack program or for questions about the many other programs offered through the Town of Huntington’s Senior Center, please call 631-351-3253.

Chapin Family Concert a Huge Hit

 

I was deeply honored last night, to join the family of the late Harry Chapin on the stage at Heckscher Park that was officially dedicated and named in Harry’s honor, as we celebrated two big milestones – the Huntington Art Council’s 50th Anniversary of their Summer Concert Series and the 40th Anniversary of Why Hunger. Representing Why Hunger, was Harry’s close friend and Why Hunger co-founder, Bill Ayres.

Despite the rescheduled concert date, there was a great and well spirited crowd assembled on the Chapin Rainbow Stage lawn and everyone was treated to the sounds of the Harry Chapin classics, thanks to the artistry of the Chapin Family Band.

The Chapin Family band is comprised of Harry Chapin’s daughter Jen, and Harry’s brothers Tom and Steve Chapin, along with Tom’s daughters Lily and Abigail “The Chapin Sisters” and Steve’s band, including his son Jonathan with Big John Wallace and Howie Fields.

It was a truly memorable and magical night of music and celebration. A warm thanks to the Chapin Family, especially Sandy, for her dedication to the arts community in Huntington and abroad.In addition to Bill Ayres for continuing the social justice work that began over a dinner conversation with Harry some forty years ago.

And a big thanks to the Huntington Arts Council for their continuing to give the residents of the Town of Huntington superior entertainment and programs on the Chapin Rainbow Stage.
