Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano will be joined by Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and Island Park Mayor Michael G. McGinty as they celebrate the 75th Anniversary of the legendary Peter’s Clam Bar. The famous Clam Bar is a South Shore institution that was built in 1939 and opened in the Summer of 1940. The ceremony will take place on tomorrow, May 14th at 11:00 a.m. at 600 Long Beach Road in Island Park.
Peter’s Clam Bar has survived many hurricanes through the years including heavy damage during SuperStorm Sandy in which it was four feet under water. Local community groups, chamber members and residents will join the festivities along with musicians dressed in periodic attire singing swing music of the 1940’s. In addition, Peter’s will be rolling back prices during lunch from the original menu of seven decades ago with 10 cent coffee and a dollar for a dozen clams.
