A 3,700 square foot building with retail space and an upstairs one bedroom apartment in Cutchogue is on the market for $ 999,000. Annual property taxes are $ 8,888.

Located on the corner of Skunk Lane and Main Road, the property sits at the mouth of Nassau Point, a peninsula surrounded by the Peconic River and Little Peconic Bay.

The apartment and storefront, which most recently housed the Phoebe & Belle gift shop, are unoccupied, said listing agent Bridget Elkin of Compass Greater New York.

“It’s a good location with great visibility off the main road and also the gateway to this community,” Elkin said. “It’s at the east end of Cutchogue, so it’s very central on North Fork. It’s right in the middle of the wine route.”

The commercial space on the ground floor includes a showroom with wooden slatted ceilings, an office, a kitchen, 1½ bathroom and 350 square feet of storage space. The 1,200 square foot one bedroom apartment on the second floor has an open floor plan, a large office, a full bathroom, and a patio.

Built in 1850, the building was restored in 2015, with new lighting, refurbished wood floors, bluestone flooring and wood cladding in the cloakroom.

“They didn’t really do a ton of structural work,” Elkin explains. “It was really about opening it up, lighting it up and putting on the right lighting to make it a true retail environment. “

Located in the Mattituck-Cutchogue Union Free School District, the house is also close to two popular farm stalls, Elkin notes.

Located at 134 Middle Pond Road, Southampton, NY, it is 3,966 square feet with four bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. This gem is located just 2.5 miles from the center of Southampton Village.

  4. Governor Kathy Hochul said on Friday she was “cautiously optimistic” that hospitalizations were starting to level off after the COVID-19 vacation spike. However, she announced that she is seeking to demand that all hospital healthcare workers be reminded. New York was the first state to mandate vaccinations for health workers, and now Hochul said his efforts will continue with his efforts to demand that health workers be beefed up within two weeks of eligibility, with no testing option and only medical exemptions .

Long Island is in the midst of an unprecedented COVID-19 wave, thanks to the many gatherings with family and friends that have taken place over the holidays and the omicron variant, which is significantly more contagious than the Delta. It was quite predictable, but it is as if our government agencies and our health systems are taken by surprise, as we are unfortunately not prepared to face this wave.

Take, for example, our testing capabilities. If you are experiencing possible symptoms of COVID (shortness of breath, cough, sore throat, fever, gastrointestinal upset, or loss of smell / taste) and want to get tested for COVID-19 on Long Island this week, good luck finding a test!

I have an autoimmune disease that has caused me heart and lung complications, so I have been very careful trying to avoid COVID-19. However, I started to develop symptoms that could be related to COVID-19 on December 28. I wanted to get tested as soon as possible because there is a narrow window at the onset of infection where you can benefit from monoclonal antibodies or antivirals like Remdesevir, which reduce the risk of hospitalization and death. Access to these early interventions is especially important for high-risk people like me who have underlying heart and breathing problems.

I called my attending physician. No test available. I called my specialists. No test available. I called several hospitals on Long Island to see if it was possible for a person with COVID-like symptoms and in a high-risk category to be tested. I was told the only way to get a COVID test was to make a testing appointment online, and online booking sites were inundated with people who needed a test to travel or work. Tried making an appointment online for testing at Stony Brook, Peconic Bay Medical Center, Northwell testing site in Roslyn, any CVS or Walgreen in the metro area, in n ‘ any walk-in clinic… nothing was available until January 6th. With an average of three days for PCR testing, that means I wouldn’t have my results until January 9, more than 10 days after my symptoms started – too late for early intervention monoclonal antibodies and early antiviral infusions are effective.

I have tried to find home test kits, although they are not as reliable as PCR tests, especially when it comes to detecting omicron. Car trips and phone calls to more than two dozen pharmacies, 7-Elevens and Suffolk County grocery stores have revealed no tests. I posted on social media groups, “Has anyone found any home test kits? A friend heard that there was a test left at a St. James’ pharmacy. Another heard that the 7-Eleven in Shirley was getting test kits soon. By the time I visited the store or called, those tests were gone as well.

I was delighted to learn on the morning of December 29 that Suffolk County was opening a first-come, first-served trial site at Hecksher State Park which would be open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. I arrived at noon on the first day of testing. They had already passed their 1,000 tests for the day and closed at 9 am, so I left without testing. Were Suffolk County officials so ignored of the huge demand for testing that they actually thought 1,000 tests would take up to 4pm?

Then a doctor friend informed me that Stony Brook Southampton had undergone PCR nasal swab testing on a first come, first served basis. After four hours of waiting (luckily in our car), I was finally tested. Alleluia!

As I embarked on this multi-day, county-wide scavenger hunt while experiencing miserable symptoms, I began to wonder why our government agencies, large hospital systems, and national drugstore chains failed. don’t they prioritize testing for people with COVID-like symptoms and people in high-risk categories? Why does the person who wants a test so they can go on vacation have the same priority access to the test as a person who is actually showing symptoms and is at risk of serious illness or death? Why don’t we plan our testing programs to help identify people who will benefit from early monoclonal and antiviral intervention in a timely manner? And just as important, why is our test infrastructure so ill-prepared to handle the post-vacation wave we all knew was coming?

Until the wave is over and it is as easy as it should be to find a timely test, government agencies, hospital systems and large drugstore chains must immediately implement measures. policies that prioritize access to PCR testing for symptomatic patients and those at high risk. In addition, the efforts of Suffolk County and New York State to expand access to testing must be done now; not next week, not next month. The push is already there.

Riverhead Police have charged Nicholas Lobianco, 35, with second-degree assault after a physical altercation that left James Meahan, 39, with lacerations and puncture injuries. The pair are residents of a house operated by Community Housing Innovations at 624 Roanoke Avenue in Riverhead, police said.

Meahan was transported to Peconic Bay Medical Center by the Riverhead Volunteer Ambulance Corp for treatment of injuries that police said did not appear to be life threatening. He was kept in hospital overnight for observation, police said.

Several new COVID-19 test sites will open on Long Island this week to ease the long lines surrounding emergency care facilities.

Starting Tuesday, Northwell Health will operate drive-thru test sites at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn and Peconic Bay Medical Center in Riverhead.

Community test sites are also being set up at the former Babies R Us in Bohemia and at 1 Marcus Ave. in New Hyde Park.

New York State-run test sites will open in Hauppauge and Hempstead on Wednesday.

Suffolk County is also opening sites with variable hours, although one will not start operating until next week.

“I recognize the frustration parents feel when trying to find tests for their children and for themselves,” says Dr. Matthew Harris of Northwell Health.

Harris says some patients are now presenting to the emergency room looking for tests. He says they should instead visit the new sites that are opening up.

“Northwell and other members of the community are stepping up testing. They will become more widely available and hopefully test results will be released sooner, ”adds Harris.

Suffolk County and state-operated sites will be walk-in, but Northwell-operated sites are by appointment only.

Kelp may be the family’s best help to save their West Sayville oyster business https://robins-island.org/kelp-may-be-the-familys-best-help-to-save-their-west-sayville-oyster-business/ Sun, 26 Dec 2021 10:00:56 +0000 https://robins-island.org/kelp-may-be-the-familys-best-help-to-save-their-west-sayville-oyster-business/ An oyster hatchery in West Sayville is banking on kelp to clean up the Great South Bay and is seeing the plant as a way to increase revenue streams.

An oyster hatchery in West Sayville is banking on kelp to clean up the Great South Bay and is seeing the plant as a way to increase revenue streams.

The family behind Hart Lobsters are used to persevering in the face of challenges. The company, founded in 1988 by Billy Hart, initially sold wholesale lobsters. But that business model was crushed in 1999 when Long Island lobsters died en masse from disease, Hart said. To keep the family business afloat, he turned to oysters and launched his oyster hatchery soon after.

Today her daughter, Lizzie Savage, continues the family tradition of spearheading new aquaculture opportunities in the face of shortages. For the second year, she is growing kelp with help from the Moore Foundation, a nonprofit that supports kelp growth on Long Island.

Research has shown that kelp benefits ocean waters by removing nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Sugar kelp is a low maintenance marine plant that grows about an inch per day. The nutritious plant has a variety of uses, including as a sweetener, as a fertilizer, and as a food.

It was an easy yes for the family to the nonprofit, and Hart Lobsters just completed his second year of growing kelp seed strings, which are being deployed in the bay outside of Hart Lobsters for observe its growth before harvest.

Kelp growth is mostly in its experimental phase, but this was the first year Savage had cultivated kelp for both research and profit.

While she was drawn to growing kelp to support her family’s business, Savage said she also felt a personal responsibility to help protect Long Island’s environment.

“Once we lose water, we lose everything,” she said. “I take it very personally.… It all points to the water of the bay.”

Savage brought kelp into the family business and said Hart Lobsters received a commercial nursery license to grow sugar kelp.

She said she changed her shellfish aquaculture license in September with the Department of Environmental Conservation to add sugar kelp.

A law allowing the cultivation of kelp in Gardiners and Peconic berries was passed this year, but cash cultivation remains largely intact in the state. In order for kelp to benefit the environment, it must be harvested, otherwise it will disintegrate in the ocean and again release the nitrogen and carbon it has absorbed, Savage said.

“We see our role as kind of a catalyst for the kelp industry in New York City,” said Justin Moore of the Moore Foundation, which works with a handful of farmers to study the conditions for kelp growing and hopes to establish a kelp cash crop network. becomes more important in New York.

Savage said Hart Lobsters, who kept his name despite no longer in the lobster business, experienced a drastic decline in his oyster hatchery in his final season. Typically, the company will reach 3 million oyster seeds per year and aim for 5 million in a good year, but the most recent season only produced 800,000, or less than 20% of their goal, Savage said. That dramatic drop could prove to be the death knell for the company if those numbers don’t improve, she said.

Savage’s hope is that kelp, which can be grown during the oyster off-season, will improve water health due to its ability to remove nitrogen from the water and provide the family business with a second source of income.

“We’re on an island, so whatever we put in the ground or in the water, it goes in the water,” she said. “Nothing is going away. And we are bringing more and more people to the island, just the overdevelopment that is happening everywhere. These nitrogen reduction systems are not keeping pace.”

KELP’S HELPING HAND

The Moore Foundation, founded by Wendy and Justin Moore, created Lazy Point Farms to help farmers grow and grow sugar kelp in the fight against climate change. Fertilizers and sumps push nitrogen into the Great South Bay. The Moore Foundation helps hatcheries get the equipment they need to grow sugar kelp.
