Welcome to Our Summer Edition of Gold Coast Magazine

Angela%20Close%20TabHauserPhoto%20%281%29I love to travel and while I’ve been to many places, the Gold Coast continues to be one of my favorites. The fact that it’s practically in my backyard makes it that much more special to me.

For this issue of Gold Coast Magazine, we take a look at some of the unique aspects of this amazing area. We invite you along to hop behind the wheel and tool down the North Shore Heritage Trail, most of which will put you on Route 25A and have you step into the past while enjoying gorgeous historic scenery in places like Sands Point, Old Westbury, Oyster Bay, Great Neck and Port Washington.

Managing Editor Sheri ArbitalJacoby turns to local politicians to ask them about some of their favorite secret spots, which range from Town of North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth’s love of the Hempstead Harbor Trail at North Hempstead Beach Park and Congressman Steve Israel’s admiration of the Long Island Sound view at Greenport’s Kontokosta Winery to Councilman Peter Zuckerman embracing the tranquility of Clark Botanical Garden and Councilwoman Viviana Russell sharing the awe-inspiring beauty found at Zicana, a high-end luxury gallery located in New Cassel.

With the hot weather finally here, Mara Bollettieri has pulled together an array of summer must-haves that include trendy swim suits, men’s, women’s and kids’ apparel, as well as personalized beach bags and other accessories for sun, surf and sand suggested by local merchants.

All of this exploring and shopping will no doubt give you quite an appetite, so rather than go home and heat up your kitchen, Alexandra Civorelli shares a number of dining options whether your tastes run to gastropubs (The Brass Rail), Italian cuisine (La Piccola Liguria, La Bussola Ristorante) or traditional steak houses (Peter Luger, Rare 650).

Alex also offers a number of great staycation suggestions—day trips that will take you to numerous destinations including Fire Island (Cherry’s on the Bay, Sailors Haven), Manhattan (the High Line, Chelsea Piers), Port Washington (Lady Liberty Cruises), Brooklyn (Smorgasburg, Coney Island, Brooklyn Botanic Garden) and Riverhead (Tanger Outlets, Long Island Aquarium).

Philanthropy is also a major passion for me and many of the people who call the Gold Coast home. Sheri writes about two of my favorite organizations: the Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center’s Friendship Circle and Old Westbury Gardens’ Gardeners’ Fair Preservation Project. The former provides financial assistance for JCC programs that improve the lives of those afflicted with varying degrees of dementia, as well as support and education for their families. The latter continues the refurbishment of the Barn at Orchard Hill, which will be used for environmental education classes.

I hope you enjoy reading these stories as much as we did pulling them together.
