How I keep busy...
Historic Asset Research Services:
HARS has been contracted by Floral Park Neighborhood Association to perform research and reporting services to put forth the application for Floral Park to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places as Floral Park Historic District. The neighborhood is comprised of over 650 historic homes and structures, and would be the third historic district within the city to be placed on the NRHP.

ALM is an Americana Museum with its collections ranging from 1900-1985 with its main focus being 1917-1955 as far as cultural emphasis. The collection consists of screen-worn costume, personal clothing, and ephemera from notable persons of that era as well as military antiques and ephemera from WWI to Vietnam.
