There's no such thing as a "best bank". Banks make money off you left and right. Giving aRead More bank a thumbs up is akin to being a cheerleader for the IRS. Now, if you said which bank has the nicest people working in it..or asthetically nice looking, I'd say "First National Bank of Long Island" in Merrick.
Rebecca July 9, 2012 at 11:43 pm
The best bank isn't a bank at all, but a CREDIT UNION.

I am a proud supporter of local business but unfortunately when it comes to steak houses, EastRead More Meadow falls short. I have eaten at all the above named steak houses in East Meadow many times because I believe in trying resturants a few times to form a fair opinion. I find that I must leave East Meadow to get a decent steak. I like Ruth's Chris Steak House in Garden City and Rothmann's in East Norwich. I miss Ronyons in East Meadow, their steaks were nearly as good as the Ruth's Chris and Rothmanns at a third the the price and I was able walk home after a few cocktails. www.EastMeadowJoeBrown.com

At 224 of New York’s 372 beaches, there were 1,841 closing and advisory days last year. ThatRead More was a 93 percent increase from 956 such days in 2010, a relatively clean year for state beaches. The report from the Natural Resources Defense Council, called “Testing the Waters: A Guide to Water Quality at Vacation Beaches” and released on Wednesday, found that a confluence of events — heavy rainfall, Hurricane Irene and a fire at a sewage treatment plant on the Hudson River in Harlem — had contributed to increased contamination of area beaches. The fire alone discharged 200 hundred millions gallons of raw sewage into New York area waters. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/28/nyregion/number-of-pollution-related-beach-closings-in-new-york-rose-sharply-in-2011.html
