The Sound of the Other Shoe Dropping...

My dear ol' Mom was fond of quoting Geoffrey Chaucer's proverb: "All good things must come to an end."


And it has, for now at least, to the corner of Library and Main which was so bad an eyesore 22 years ago that the Wilenski Administration popped for a stockade fence and some land­scap­ing to shield the the parcel from the gaze of passers-by.

That honeymoon is now over, as the man who controls that piece of prop­erty, one Barry Bern­stein, has warranted to the Westhampton Planning Board that he is going to move ahead with its development, and to that end contracted with a small CAT to clear the property of the Village-installed picnic-style benches and tables.

The denuded Bernstein parcel

According to long-time Planning Board Chairman Vic Levy who passes that location several times a day traveling be­tween home and his Modern Yachts business at the other end of Library Avenue...

"That little piece on the corner, following only Rogers Beach and the Municipal Marina, is the most popular public park in the Village. There were always people there using one of the tables to sit and have a sandwich, pizza or an ice cream."

Sic transit and all that.
