I was born in Westbury and brought up in Old Westbury. I have not been back there since 1961. I have many fond memories as a child of going to the Westbury Theater on Saturday afternoons to see a movie. Sundays were spent going to St. Brigid’s Church, buying rolls at the bakery and a Sunday paper at the Drugstore and then heading home. In the 1940’s and 1950’s I spent many many hours at Annie McCarthy’s candy and grocery store/house which was located on the left across from the gas station as you headed into town on Post Avenue. She was my grandmother. It is heart breaking to read what has been happening to Post Avenue and the theater.
