PLEASE REMEMBER TO CONTINUE TO DRIVE WITH CARE
At this time of year with the school year coming to an end, please continue to keep in mind that some of our young people are now out of school and will be playing in their neighborhoods. Please pay particular attention when driving as a few preoccupied young people will inevitably dart out from in between parked cars or fail to look for oncoming traffic when crossing the street.
SHOP AND DINE OUTDOORS IN GARDEN CITY
The residents of Garden City are very fortunate to have viable retail businesses on Seventh Street, Franklin Avenue and New Hyde Park Road where there is a good variety of quality merchandise and family dining experiences available to be enjoyed. Please support these businesses and enjoy the products, variety and outstanding customer service. Keep in mind that these merchants save you from traveling outside the Village for your needs. Consider the harsh reality if we did not have these businesses here to service our needs.
