Nassau and Suffolk county lawmakers are teaming up in their call for the NHL’s New York Islanders to once again make the renovated Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale their home ice.
A Uniondale man was convicted Thursday of manslaughter for killing an 18-month old boy he was babysitting while the child’s mother went to work in three years ago.
Two men were convicted Wednesday of throwing a brick and a cinder block off a bridge onto the Meadowbrook State Parkway in Uniondale, causing thousands of dollars in damage and injuring a woman.
Not until the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum closed for more than a year to undergo extensive renovations did many Long Islanders realize how much they had taken the Uniondale arena for granted.
U.S. Rep. Kathleen Rice and Nassau County Legis. Rose Walker joined doctors, staff, and patients of Gastroenterology Associates, one of the largest gastroenterology practices on Long Island, in helping raise awareness about colorectal cancer at the grand opening of its recently relocated offices and outpatient facility, the Long Island Center for Digestive Health in Uniondale.
