EAST ISLIP, NY (Sept. 19, 2014) – A decaying and long neglected historic mansion is finally getting some attention as community leaders, history buffs and architecture aficionados begin a restoration effort to get the building, once home to millionaires and later orphans, into the National Register of Historic Places.

Officials, led by Islip Town Councilman Steve Flotteron, today kicked off an effort to restore the historic, but decaying, more-than-century-old Georgian revival mansion in East Islip, called Brookwood Hall.

Flotteron and a group of volunteers from local historic, arts and business organizations spent the morning of September 19, tearing down ceilings and walls of the 1903 brick mansion in an effort to expose some of the 41-room home’s original grandeur.


Town Board, Local Officials Honor the Victims of 9/11

Islip, N.Y. – The Town of Islip recently held its annual September 11th Remembrance Ceremony, which took place at Veterans Memorial Park, outside of Town Hall. Members of the Islip Town Board read aloud the names of all Islip residents who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11th. Local volunteer firemen also paid tribute to the first responders who died while trying to rescue those trapped inside the World Trade Center.

“It’s a sign of the strength and unity of our Town that we are all joined together to honor the fallen,” said Supervisor Tom Croci. “We will never forget the sacrifices that were made that day, and we won’t forget the sacrifices that have been made since to ensure the security of this country.”

“The residents of Central Islip are grateful for the support from the Town of Islip, KaBOOM! and Disney in bringing a new playground to Islip Community Park that will serve the children in community well,” said Debbie Cavanaugh, president of Central Islip Coalition of Good Neighbors. “This is the first stage in building our park, which was just a dream for our community but was brought to life today by our partners and community volunteers.
