that water tower doesnt fit the town.
the mayor and the board should be run out of town
they turned sea cliff into queens
it is obscene. they will get the kickbacks from
the water it sends to glenwood landing and glen head. save the paperwork we should fight
anyone agree?

yes, I agree, now that the water tower is built
sea cliff should claim imminant domaine and
sieze the water company from the austrailian
co, sea cliff residents would never pay real estate taxes
again ever!!

Agreed, its an atrocity. The zoning board should be strung up from the top of that god-awful thing. What were they thinking? They've caused lasting and significant damage to the character of the village and the property values of all who live in the area.
And then they have the nerve to go after Aratas for improving their store?
The whole lot of them should be forced to resign. Its a disgrace.

Sad Sad Sad, terrible!!! I AM IN SHOCK. TOTAL SHOCK. How on earth could this huge ugly tower come to Sea Cliff. BTW.. Wasn't Sea Cliffs Water Tower one of the first 5 towers in USA. Dating back to the 1800's. They MUST take this new tower it down!!!!! How about just adding one additional tower the same shape and size as the original!!!!
VERY VERY stupid things happen in this village !!! A few of my other pet peeves are: Having a drive up mail box on a street that leads to a park where children play . A totally unnecessary traffic light down near Tappen Beach. Couldn't zebra crossings or stop signs be tried at that intersection first! And we all LOVE the code enforcers that drive around being nosy bodies, burning gas by the gallons in town Trucks and spying on residents! Not to mention the number of times I have seen them doing illegal things ! ie leaving town trucks running with keys in and unattended, parking on one way streets in wrong direction. Taking two marked parking spots as they sloppily park ! Did Sea Cliff really need the streets marked in white paint to make parking spots ! Where are the handicap spots?, and why aren't they standard sizes, most of the parking spots are too small for my car!!! I hope the Jerks responsible for the New Ugly Water Tower, choke on their next glass of water ! Sincerely, Sad In Sea Cliff, PS. What ever happened to the cell phone tower, that is needed. I recall that it was going to look like a lovely flag pole! That it would be small and non intrusive! One little cell phone tower doesn't get permission but a HUGE UGLY UGLY UGLY Water Tower gets erected! PSS. BTW everyone I mention the Tower to had not even heard that we were getting a new one! There isn't even info on the official Sea Cliff web page ! SHAME !

the water tower was necessary so that we could
build the sewer system, for the new condos
in glenwood landing and glen cove and so that
we could retire in comfort. it looks great
and you should be proud to live in sea cliff
with this great structure

My handle tells you that I disagree with Sad in Sea Cliff. Besides rambling on and on about everything, he zeroes in on a water tower that was necessarily updated because the old, landmarks one was not good enought anymore. I think that there should have been a SEA CLIFF put up on the water tower like other communities but a few neighbors disagreed. They just want sky blue paint and nothing more. Meanwhile, Sad in Sea Cliff, have you checked out houses in Glenwood Landing or Glen Head?

The new water tower was necessary, folks, so stop bitching. A lady friend of mine who lives close to the site wants clouds and seagulls painted on the sky blue background. Another woman publicly stated that the word PEACE would be appropriate. Any other patriotic voices out there? How about an kAmerican flag? How about a big Barack Obama? The biggest question is, how did we get that shape after a meeting consensus was for the golf ball on a tee style? That's par for the course with this village administration. Perhaps our choice of three mayor candidates will bring a solution to the chaos that exists.

If the Tower takes away the sun from my garden, do I get a tax break?

Shadow: We can't move the tower. But how about a mural of the sunshine and your garden on the tower? Will that make you happy? Vote for Joe Krupinski on Row B and it can all happen with the pull of a lever. Good times are a-coming if we elect this compassionate plant lover. Would I lie?

I, too, live near the water tower. I agree with shadow of the tower that it is displeasing in size and shape. I was at the meeting that chose the sky blue color and am grateful for that. I disagree with hardy boy who seems to be pushing for decorations on the tower which would only bring attention to this eyesore, as necessary as it may be. I'd really be worried if they tried to put cell phone antennas on the tower. Let's keep this blog going, it's for a good cause.

the water tower is a fait accompli, which is french for done deal, my moniker before any of this went down. the neighbors did not seem to get a chance to truly give the Village their preference of shape and size although, to be fair, Aqua of England was in charge and not liable to change its 'masterful' plans. The village administration could have been stronger in its protection of the neighbors but unfortunately dropped the ball.
it's a shame that we somehow lost our little intra-village Sea Cliff Water Company, run by the Grella family. They were reachable and recognizable. Now we have a bunch of suits running the show, distant and unapproachable.
there can be a change in this kind of governing for a small community like ours. The Big Brothers can be challenged, not only within our village limits but in Glen Cove and Glenwood Landing, too. Let's vote for change, mainly with Joe Krupinski, who seems a little more dedicated to that premise than the other independent, Bruce Kennedy. Bob Haim, alas, stands for the same old ...

Well, the water tower remains just a matter of tearing the old one down and painting the new one sky-blue. Too bad for the timing, wonder if the neighbors would have received more of a say with new mayor Bruce Kennedy?

That isn't the point, Done Deal. We neighbors did not get a full hearing although we were given plenty of lip service by the Village. Next will be cellphone transmitters sticking out of the water tower. No rest for the wary!

Top: Do you literally look DOWN at the new water tower? You certainly look down at it, philosophically speaking. But each to his own. It's there. It's no uglier than the old one. It's a necessary evil. Do you want us all to drink bottled water? Are you a salesman for Poland Spring? There are a lot of questions here, Top, are you up to answering them in detail?
