Mr. Blumenfeld is a role model for all of us! One of the reasons so many of us chose the town of Port to raise our families is because it has a real sense of community. My family has the pleasure of knowing and loving Mr. Blumenfeld - we are proud to call him our friend!

I have so much admiration for Mr. Blumenfeld. I am so,grateful to him for all he has done for our town. My one regret is that he didn't live on Manhasset Isle. Had he lived here it would be the gem it should be and there certainly wouldn't be a cell tower.
