US OPEN in Bethpage Long Island NY 2009—Photos
These are some other shots Laura Cerrano of Feng Shui Manhattan was able to capture on Friday at Bethpage State Park in Long Island NY. With nothing but rain expected for the next few days (accompanied by HEAVY rain and colder temperatures), I suspect even if you are on the Golf Course these might be the best views you’ll get.
What is it about having the US Open on Long Island and rain? This feels like a repeat of the 2002 US Open. My hints for attending the Open?
Getting ready to film...he needed way more protection in the driving rains we had today!
In spite of the many tents, they had to close the event early today.
- Dress warm; we are having April temperatures in JUNE.
- Don’t leave home without an umbrella (or two!)
- Watch where you park! Farmingdale Village has been having what is called a “ticketing blitz” and although signs are posted, you have to look all the way UP to see them. Laura and I both got tickets the first week we moved back to Farmingdale in January!
- Places you might like to try for great food:
Krisches in Massapequa (one town over). Krisches is a New York Institution known for its homemade Ice Cream, Pies, Chocolate and the absolute BEST hamburgers anywhere! It is a true old-time confectionary store that has been around forever and, I suspect, will stay around forever. It would be a shame to leave Long Island without stopping in the treasure in Massapequa, NY.
HRS Singleton’s in Bethpage: A somewhat more upscale yet still casual restaurant where you are greeted every night by the owner. Formerly called “No Bananas” this restaurant was ALWAYS good. Its close and you’re assured a great meal.
If you like Chinese Food, Kwong Ming in Wantagh has also been around forever. Newsday aggress with me on this one, they have unparalleled Chinese Food that never tastes like “take-out” -- even if it is!
Dominico’s in Levittown Long Island. Hidden in a corner of a shopping market and right next to Brittany Beauty School (one of my old schools : ), it looks outside like any other Pizza Place. Take a walk into the back and visit the restaurant for some wonderful Italian dishes I’ve tried for years to recreate at home (but never have).
ALL of these places have Good Feng Shui! They’d have to as they’ve lasted so long and remained consistently GOOD.
Here's a few more shots from Friday....Cloudy but not the horrendous rain we had today!
The Oak Room....Fine Dining Inside the newly renovated clubhouse.
I do hear some are stopping to sign autographs after the 18th hole. I have also read that New Yorkers who play this course often have given welcomed advice to the players of the US Open.
We ALL hope for better weather tomorrow!
