Today in North Hills we celebrated National I Love Horses Day by having two beautiful mini horses visit from Horseability. The horses were so gentle and loving, we couldn’t get enough of them. Thank you to Horseability for taking the time to visit. We can not wait to have you back!
We had so much fun celebrating the Fourth of July here in Westbury. The day began with entertainment by the Bay City Ramblers, where everyone was up and dancing in their best red, white, and blue apparel. After, we enjoyed an all American BBQ lunch, followed by classic red, white, and blue Italian ices for dessert. Our Independence Day would not have been complete, though, without a patriotic sing along, so we did just that. It was another amazing summer day here in Westbury!
Here in East Meadow we had a great time celebrating Independence Day! We hosted a variety show featuring special guests from New York Senior America! After the show, we enjoyed the beautiful weather with an all American BBQ on the patio. We were all dressed in red, white, and blue as we proudly celebrated our country!
Here in Lake Success we had such a great time celebrating Independence Day! Everyone proudly wore their red, white, and blue for our Fourth of July BBQ, music, and dancing. From an all American lunch to patriotic tunes, it was a beautiful afternoon spent celebrating our amazing country!
We had a great time welcoming the summer sunshine at our Hello Sunshine Party this month! Residents, employees, families, and friends all dressed in bright colors and wore their best hat as they posed in the photo booth and danced to Make U Dance Entertainment. From the beautifully set up photo booth, to funny props and hats, it was hard to take a bad picture. We are so glad we were able to capture these amazing memories from this summer. We hope you are enjoying it as much as we are!
We are taking full advantage of the beautiful weather this summer here in North Hills. This month we had a Luau Party on the patio featuring professional Hawaiian dancers, all our favorite summer drinks, and of course grass skirts and leis. It was a great afternoon for a celebration, and our beautiful outdoor patio was the perfect place to enjoy it!
We are so excited to be around the corner from opening The Bristal at Garden City. The final touches are being made as we get closer to opening. Call us today to schedule your visit!
Today, Helen and Martin Inwald celebrated their 70th Wedding Anniversary in North Woodmere by renewing their vows! While the couple’s true anniversary is on December 19, 1948, Helen thought celebrating on Martin’s 95th birthday, with a vow renewal ceremony, would be perfect! Family and friends gathered to watch the beautiful couple hand and hand as they shared their secrets to their happy marriage. The best advice the Inwald’s shared was “compromise, cooperation, and consideration.” Thank you, Helen and Martin, for allowing us to be a part of this beautiful day!
Today West Babylon residents took a trip out to Laurel Lake Vineyards. It just happened to be resident Bill’s 88th birthday as well! We enjoyed walking the grounds and doing a tasting, followed by lunch on the deck. The weather ended up being beautiful and we could not be happier to have started the warmer months with a day like today!
Here in North Woodmere we enjoyed a special performance by the Atlantic Community Band outside in the courtyard. The band is made up of 30 professional orchestra musicians, playing woodwinds, brass, and percussion instruments. They played a medley of Broadway favorites and patriotic classics for an audience in the round, where everyone had a front row seat. The beautiful music combined with beautiful weather, made for a perfect afternoon!
Here in White Plains, we are patiently waiting for the summer weather. To hold us over, we decided to bring the Caribbean Islands to our community with a Tropical Party. We danced to the sounds of the islands with iLan’ Ban’ as we enjoyed all of the best vacation drinks and snacks. The bright smiles and vibrant colors were enough to really bring the sun out!
Residents in East Northport have been participating in a very special program the past few months. The Pencils and Erasers Club is an organization started as an effort to bring school supplies to children in Ghana. The program’s founder, Victoria, first worked with us in East Northport to package pencils and erasers in the fall. Victoria then traveled to Ghana and presented the school children with them, from The Bristal at East Northport. This week we were honored to have Victoria back. Children from a local school joined us this time to help with the efforts. It was a beautiful … read more
On May 12th, residents and families attended a Mother’s Day Tea Party in Holtsville. Piano player JK Hodge entertained us with all of our favorite tunes throughout the afternoon. A variety of teas were served along with finger sandwiches, croissants, linzer tarts, biscotti cookies, fresh fruit and more.

Here in West Babylon, we had a great time celebrating the Kentucky Derby. Everyone wore their finest hats for our hat parade in the morning. After the parade we placed bets on the horses racing in the famous Kentucky Derby, then played our own horse racing game! The Bristal Derby would not have been complete, though, without some mint juleps and blondie bars!
