The Hampton Jitney is celebrating its fortieth year of bussing people from New York to Long Island. For those of us who don’t have access to a car or helicopter to whisk us off to the Hamptons, we must make do with the Jitney or the Long Island Railroad, provided I don’t elect to bike there.
To commemorate the anniversary, they held a design contest for the 40th Anniversary Jitney Coach.
The results of the content were announced last week, but I didn’t see the message because it ended up in my spam folder. The winners were:
- Lynn Mara
- Eddie Duque
- Stephanie Baloghy
- Francis Quigley
I mention this because the second winner on this list is a distant family member. He is my mother’s half-brother’s brother-in-law. I think it makes him an uncle, despite being a bit younger than me.
It’s unlikely I’ll be out on Long Island again before the summer ends, but if you see the bus wrapped with a design that features the city skyline, the beach, and I-495 (i.e., the Long Island Expressway), that’s his design.
Way to go, tio!
