Our park, Syosset Mobile Home Park, formerly known as Oaks Trailer Park, has been a mobile community since the early 1900’s and is the ONLY Mobile Home Park in Nassau County, NY. In 1939, the park was advertised as “The Only Exclusive Trailer Park On Long Island” as lodging for the World’s Fair.

Two years ago, on April 9, 2007 we, the home owners residing in the park, were notified by letters left in our mailboxes that our park had been sold by HORMI Holding Company, Inc. to Larry Rush (owner of LJR Development Co.), Lawrence Feldman (an attorney with Farrell-Fritz, deceased) and Howard Avrutine (of Goldstein & Avrutine, right up the road from our park and Town attorney for Laurel Hollow!). They are the principal partners of STP Associates, LLC. The resident/home owners of the park were blindsided and devastated by the news as prior management (HORMI) consistently stated that “this has always been a park and will always be a park, its grandfathered”.

Believing this to be true, and relying upon the representations made by the park managers, home owners have spent their life savings purchasing, furnishing and refurbishing their homes with future plans of retiring here. STP Associates, LLC wants us to take our homes and leave. Unlike their names, our homes are no longer "mobile" and we will receive no compensation if we are forced to leave them behind!

We strongly believe that leaving ones home should be a personal choice and should not be up to the discretion of a developer. We do not want to move!

We love our homes, our park and our close knit community. It would be devastating for all the members of our community, from the children to our seniors, if we were forced to leave.


Our nation has always come to the aid of its own in a time of crisis and we at the Syosset Mobile Home Park in New York, have been living in a constant state of crisis for the past two years (since 4/09/07)!

In April 2007, our park was sold to Larry Rush (owner of LJR Development Co.), Lawrence Feldman (attorney with Farrell-Fritz, deceased) and Howard Avrutine (of Goldstein & Avrutine, right up the road from our park, and Town Attorney for Laurel Hollow), the principal partners of STP Associates, LLC. They want us to take our homes and get off their land. Contrary to their names, our homes are no longer "mobile" and cannot be moved. Regardless, we will receive NO compensation should we be forced to leave them behind! The residents at the park believe that closing an almost 100 year old Mobile Home Community which provides an affordable housing alternative for middle-class citizens in today’s plumeting economical and real estate markets to build even more luxury homes is unconscionable.

Nassau County and the Town of Oyster Bay should be ashamed of themselves if they consider Larry Rush, Larry Feldman (deceased) and Howard Avrutine's proposal to destroy this close-knit mobile home community in favor of redeveloping the property into a high-end luxury housing community of 75 condominiums starting at $750,000!

We ask our fellow Americans for their support in our efforts to save our homes and our community.

Thank you.
