Two New Parking Lots Available for Commuters at South Bayles Avenue and Main Street
Port Washington, NY— Supervisor Jon Kaiman and Councilman Fred L. Pollack recently showcased the Town’s newly constructed parking lots on South Bayles Avenue and on the corner of Jackson Avenue and Main Street in Port Washington. Fulfilling their promise to residents to make parking availability and expansion a reality, both officials cited the how critical it was to make it easier for commuters to travel on the Port peninsula.
“This is just the latest example of how the Town has worked to make it easier for commuters in Port Washington to get around,” said Supervisor Jon Kaiman. “I am pleased that residents can now take full advantage of both of these facilities.”
Councilman Fred L. Pollack added, “I am confident that this will positively impact our local business community by allowing shoppers more access to our downtown storefronts.”
This is just the latest improvement to the Port Washington community by the Town. In June, North Hempstead held a ribbon cutting ceremony to commemorate the Manorhaven Pool complex grand re-opening, featuring a 37,000 square-foot facility that boasts zero depth entry for children and beginners, water slides and play features, as well as competitive swimming and exercise.
