Freeport's Nautical Mile.

  • May 19, 2013 · 9:00 AM

We will meet at the south end of Woodcleft Ave. near the gazebo and walk the length of the canal - about a mile each way. A map can be found at

http://photos3.meetupstatic.com/photos/event/d/7/7/0/600_236455152.jpeg . Best route to get there is Merrick Road to Guy Lombardo Avenue and go south past Atlantic Avenue. Turn right past the park and left on Woodcleft. Drive to the end. Freeport is perfectly dog friendly, so feel free to bring your best friend if it is dog/people friendly. A number of places on the Mile are still closed from Sandy but the ones that are open would appreciate your business. In particular, there are two excellent fish stores.

    I am really excited about this walk! Can't wait. Finally a walk where we can socialize and appreciate what's around, take it all in. Not rush like we're running a marathon. I am a fitness instructor, yet wanted a group that took relaxed walks too. Thanks for organizing it.

    May 3, 2013

    If I can get ride, I hope to be there.

    May 1, 2013

    • Terry B.

      From Merrick Road go south for about a mile on Guy Lombardo Ave. Make a right at Front Street at the end of the park. Then a left and on down.

      May 1, 2013

    • Catherine H.

      Thank you

    Would have loved to do this, but I have a previous commitment. Looking forward to joining everyone on a future amble.

    I don't believe that this walk is a good idea. There is an ordinance with the Village of Amityville that prohibits people from standing in front of, staring at, stopping the car, or taking pictures of the 'famous house' on Ocean Ave. The Amityville Police are very strict and enjoy ticketing anyone who looks at them the wrong way. This house was recently renovated and resold, and the people living there have surveillance all over their home aimed at the street. Give them some privacy and peace of mind. Ronald DeFeo is the 1970's history, and the house just a lovely place where residents want to live in peace. Please cancel this trip.

    April 30, 2013

    • Terry B.

      I just double checked. Even though it is now a moot point, the house is at Ocean Avenue. The last time my son went trick or treating, his last stop was that house.

      April 30, 2013

    • Moe

      This house is getting alot of talk time here. :)
