Old Northport Favorite is 

My New Favorite After the Big Reveal…

Shipwreck Diner Reveal

It was big news in the Village of Northport when Tim’s Shipwreck Diner reopened after 3 days of a surprise makeover by Ty Pennington and his crew for a new series coming out on the Food Network called the “American Diner Revival”.  As a “Northporter”,  Shipwreck  has had my loyalty as diner of choice for more years than I can remember.  I love the vintage railroad car atmosphere, the really, really delicious fresh foods and friendly staff.  I was actually a little unsettled when I heard this news, because in my mind why fix what’s not broken?

Lucky to Live in Northport ~ Kicking off of the 4th Annual Northport Family Fun Night Series

Ellen Patterson & Jen Monahan enjoying Northort Family Night

Last week my real estate partner Jennifer Monahan and I set out to enjoy a beautiful evening in Northport for the very first Northport Harbor Family Night of Summer 2014.  As we scoured the surrounding lots and blocks for parking, we knew immediately this was definitely the happening place to be every Tuesday during the month of August.  Main Street is closed to traffic and the atmosphere resembles your neighborhood Block Party! The air is nothing short of festive with multiple bands playing, the scents of outdoor dining, and plenty to look at with the dozens of vintage vehicles displayed along the street,

Northport Family Fun Night is a hit!

merchant wares out on tables and dog owners strolling by with their pets meeting and greeting.  It made me wish I was part of the 12 and younger crowd, because there was so much going on for kids from a really good magician, inflatable slides and bouncy houses, strolling Wizard of Oz characters, sand art, ice cream and plenty of friends to run into.  We even ran into some of our own!

Jen and I definitely give this local event a big thumbs up and hope to see you there this Tuesday August 12th for the second week.  Northport Harbor Family Nights 6:30pm-9:30pm.
