We’ve been busy on the economic development front

By Karen Polise and Domenick Graziani

Our commitment to the communities in which we live, work and play is as strong as ever.

“Over the past couple of months, over $400K in economic developments grants have been awarded to organizations on Long Island that will help support communities and businesses to continue to thrive.” said Lyle Sclair, representative of National Grid’s Economic Development programs. “Our partnerships with Sag Harbor Cinema on Long Island, Noble Savage Brewing Company in the city of Glen Cove and the Town of Babylon IDA are very exciting because we know it all adds up to the economic growth of the region.”

For over a century, the Sag Harbor Cinema has been a landmark in the lively and culturally diverse Main Street district of Sag Harbor, New York, a haven for writers, artists, and independent thinkers. On December 16, 2016, the cinema was partially destroyed by a fire that ripped through Sag Harbor’s Main Street, also damaging several adjacent buildings. The theater’s façade had to be demolished, but the auditorium was spared, and the iconic sign salvaged from the rubble. With support from an economic development grant, this will help them to rebuild and establish an ongoing relationship with residents both year-round and seasonal.
