Park
“Wonderful trail with great views of the bay. Also they have goats that you will see on the trail in the morning "mowing" the grass. There are also some birds that roam the grounds.”

Turkish Restaurant

“The kabobs are rocking eaten on the spot or even if you take them home. If you dine in, you’ll enjoy warm customer service, Efes Turkish beer, and sometimes even live belly dancing. I especially like the jujeh kabob, grilled Cornish hen marinated in saffron and lemon with cherry rice. Midday, the lunch special is an entrée and rice for $12.95. Lunch or dinner, don’t miss a dessert of Persian ice cream with saffron and pistachio chunks.”

“Historical perspective of Freeport once the busiest tax "free"-"port" outside what is now NY Harbor. Fascinating for history buffs and educational for children, without leaving town.”
