9/17/2013 - Councilwoman Russell Joins Elected Officials for Grand Opening of the "The Space" at Westbury

Westbury, NY – On September 17th, Town of North Hempstead Councilwoman Viviana Russell joined a host of elected officials and community leaders at the Grand Opening of ‘The Space at Westbury,’ on Post Avenue.  ‘The Space’ opened as the Westbury Movie Theater in 1927 and is being re-born as a multi-purpose entertainment venue that can host concerts, movies, special events and more.  Councilwoman Russell said, “I thank Cyrus Hakakian for his vision of bringing back this gem to the community and Mayor Cavallero and the Westbury Village trustees for their diligence in seeing this project through to the end.  The Space embodies what ‘cool downtowns’ are all about.”
