a walk in the park

I have so enjoyed spending some time on Long Island visiting my parents. Whenever I come back home I always take a walk in Eisenhower Park and visit the Veterans Memorial. This beautiful memorial serves as a tribute to the heroes of Nassau County. I also always go to Jones Beach. That will be the next post.

On my recent trip to Long Island I went to Eisenhower Park and had fun remembering being a kid in this beautiful place. The park features a somber memorial to 9/11. On September 9, 2007, Nassau County unveiled the 9/11 Memorial honoring the 344 Nassau County residents who lost their lives during the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. The monument is one of the largest completed memorials to the victims of the 9/11 attacks.

During my recent trip to New York, specifically, my hometown of East Meadow, on Long Island, I took some time to visit Eisenhower Park. When I was growing up this was known as Salisbury Park, named after the country club that owned the property. This park is actually larger than Central Park in Manhattan. There is a beautiful Veterans Memorial in the park where I took this picture.
