History and Information about the beginning of Albertson, NY
Albertson, NY "THE BEGINNING"
Living in Albertson NY, have you ever wondered when and how the Albertson Square Civic Association came into being? I found the answer in Rosemarie Murphy one of the original founders. It was founded in 1977 in response to a variance application by a large auto body and repair shop seeking to occupy the southeast corner of IU Willets Road and Willis Avenue. The community was opposed because of the large trucks, noise, and traffic congestion. This was not an easy task and they persevered until 1984 when the N Y S Supreme Court denied the application. Today the corner is occupied by a Barber Shop and the newly opened “Basil and Prime”, formally DaVinci’s.
