It’s called Knickerbocker Bay Club, a condominium community located in Port Washington with waterfront views designed for the 62-plus active adult.Formerly the home of the Knickerbocker Yacht Club, three residences are still available from the 32 that were built in 2015. One of these homes is Residence 212, an elegant 2,544-square-foot unit that features three bedrooms; two-and-a half baths; a new contemporary gourmet-style kitchen with custom white cabinetry imported from Italy; quartz countertop island; Sub-Zero refrigerator; dining area that seats eight; fireplace with white marble detail; plank oak wood flooring; and spa-like bathrooms with Crema Marfil marble.Outside, it has a terrace that is so large a wedding reception could be held on it, laughs Anne Arter, Real Estate Associate Broker with Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International and Sales Manager at the Knickerbocker Bay Club.“This unit is unusual,” Arter says. “The terrace is larger in square footage than the unit itself.”“One of the biggest draws is the water,” she adds. “You have the Manhasset Bay views, and you can see the Manhattan skyline from the rooftop terrace and enjoy the sunsets that are phenomenal.”The condo that is priced at $1,760,100 offers on-site indoor assigned parking and storage, a 24-hour virtual doorman, state-of-the-art fitness center, rooftop terrace with BBQ, putting green, fire pit, dining and lounge area and a private dock with slips and moorings available for those residents who enjoy having their boats close by.“Ironically, no one has a boat, which was a surprise to all of us,” Arter laughs. “The slips and moorings are here.”The building, she says, is also pet friendly with at least 15 percent of occupants owning a pet. There is even a conference room on-site and a spacious sitting area in the lobby.“In the last few years we are seeing that condos are becoming more of a trend particularly with the 60-plus age group,” says Arter. “People want to downsize and no longer want the maintenance of a home. They don’t want to move out of state — they want to stay on Long Island and be close to their children and grandchildren. They also want the convenience. Everything is right here within walking distance from shopping, restaurants, the train, so you don’t even need a car.”The building, located on Main Street, is close to the library, the Landmark on Main Street theater, boutiques, art galleries, and antique shops as well as local beaches and parks. Residents can also enjoy the Bay Walk, a waterfront park completed over the summer, within walking distance of Knickerbocker Bay Club and featuring kayak access, bicycles, new benches and a garden. There are many draws of condo living and for Arter, one, in particular, is the peacefulness of it all.“The building is made of concrete- grade steel, so you don’t hear your neighbors at all,” she says.For more information contact Anne Arter, Real Estate Associate Broker, Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty and Sales Manager, Knickerbocker Bay Club at 516-639-4448.The design of the master bedroom and sitting area gives a feeling of serenity with its ocean views and elegant decor. Double doors lead into the spacious great room.The open floor plan features built-in cabinets, comfortable seating, a 60-inch Samsung television with sound system and grande windows offering beautiful views of Manhasset Bay.The private patio offers an intimate setting for friends and family to gather.

GREGORY DIXON/Herald PhotoThe Wisconsin women’s soccer team faced one of its biggest tests of the season last weekend as they battled two of the best teams in the Big Ten. This weekend will not be any easier.Things may feel like déjàvu for the Badgers (6-6-3, 3-4-1 Big Ten), as for the second-straight week they will take to the road to battle the Big Ten’s first-place team, followed by a matchup against a quality opponent. Tonight, the Badgers travel to Pennsylvania to battle No. 9 Penn State (10-3-3, 6-1-1), while Sunday has Wisconsin heading to Milwaukee to battle UW-Milwaukee (13-2-1, 6-0-0 Horizon League).While some teams may prefer a break from such tough competition, Wisconsin head coach Dean Duerst said his team is excited and confident.”We’re just really excited because here’s a chance to go in and play a top team in the country that’s ranked,” he said.One reason that Duerst is looking forward to tonight’s game is because he has looked at Penn State’s schedule and has seen that many of their wins have been close games. In fact, five of Penn State’s 10 wins have been by only one goal.”We have to go there with the intent to get a win or a tie,” he said. “I think our kids are actually very confident that that’s what they can do.”Like Duerst, the players are excited for the weekend, but they feel as though they can’t afford to lose ground this weekend.”It’s going to be a tough weekend,” Wisconsin sophomore forward Taylor Walsh said. “We need to get some points out of this weekend, whether it’s a tie or a win. We can’t afford a loss right now.”We have a good game plan going for this weekend that we think will definitely get some results,” Walsh added.To avoid slipping further in the conference standings, the Badgers will have to play better than they did last weekend when they were defeated 1-0 by then-No. 16 Indiana and by Purdue 4-0. To get back in the Big Ten race, they’ll have to shore up their play on both offense and defense.The two shutouts last weekend marked the first time this season that the Badgers went scoreless in consecutive matches. Walsh said that one of the keys for the team is to be more patient on offense.”We’re going to try and pick our attacks more,” she said. “We’re going to sit back and find the perfect opportunity; wait for the moments.”Neither the Nittany Lions nor the Panthers will make things easy for the Badgers, though. Penn State, unbeaten in its last five matches (4-0-1), has allowed only six goals in eight Big Ten games this season and 15 in 16 games overall. Both marks are good for third in the conference.Sunday will be an even bigger test as UW-Milwaukee is one of the best defensive teams in the country. The Panthers currently rank eighth in the nation with a .424 goals-against-average and second in shutouts with 13.With such strong defenses, Duerst hopes that his team can capitalize when given the chance.”It’ll be important that our midfield plays well. Midfield will be an important area this weekend as well as just making the most out of a couple of opportunities that you’re going to be able to get,” Duerst said. “Last weekend, we didn’t make the most out of those opportunities.”From a defensive standpoint, the Badgers will have to bounce back from a game in which they gave up a season-high four goals. Freshman midfielder Whitney Owusu said that anticipation and teamwork will be key for the Badgers this weekend.”We want to anticipate,” Owusu said. “Last weekend, we just reacted and that’s why we lost those games.”We’re going to have to play as a unit,” she added. “The back four has to stay together and make sure we know where the other forwards are. We have to make sure we’re talking, communicating.”The Nittany Lions are tied for the Big Ten lead with 16 goals in conference games and lead the conference in overall goals with 29. The Panthers have also scored 29 goals on the season.With two formidable offenses in its future, Duerst feels that the team needs to have better game management.”As a defensive unit, we have to keep our shape together, from the top forward to the back and even with the keeper in behind,” he said. “It’s really important that we don’t get ourselves stretched out against these teams.”The current four-game stretch is likely the most difficult portion of the Badgers’ schedule. That said, the team knows what it needs to do to keep their season going.”When we were on the bus going back home we just kind of regrouped,” Walsh said after losing both games last weekend. “We just figured out that we need to focus and keep going ahead and concentrate on what we need to do and what we can control.” read more

Source: Electric Vehicle News Model 3 Shoots Tesla Sales In September Up By 270% We agree that this report comes as no surprise. While Tesla hasn’t recently revealed specifics about reservation cancellations or incoming orders, the Tesla Model 3 reservation list is still likely massive and the automaker is racing to build and deliver as many cars as possible, meaning nearly every single car it makes has a potential owner waiting. According to Tesla’s second-quarter delivery report:The remaining net Model 3 reservations count at the end of Q2 still stood at roughly 420,000 even though we have now delivered 28,386 Model 3 vehicles to date.In July, a Tesla spokesperson responded to a Twitter user inquiring about Needham Analyst Downgrading Tesla stock. CEO Elon Musk also chimed in:Dunno where this bs is coming from. Who knows about the future, but last week we had over 2000 S/X and 5000 Model 3 *new* net orders.— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) July 20, 2018 Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on October 11, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Just a three-day supply of Tesla Model 3 vehicles compared to the industry average of about 60 days?According to a report by Autoline Daily, it appears the answer to the above question is … yes. The report cites a previous Automotive News share (April 1, 2018 – though not a joke) that shows over four million unsold inventory vehicles from all automakers combined in the U.S., which breaks down to a 69-day supply. 1redDrop has no information related to Autoline’s source for specific Model 3 inventory figures, but admits that it only makes sense that the Silicon Valley automaker would have fewer cars on hand than traditional OEMs.Additional Related Content: Tesla Model 3 Sales Hit Epic Volume In August 33 photos Monthly Plug-In Sales Scorecard TESLA MODEL 3 PERFORMANCE 10 photos Tesla is clearly not constrained by a lack of demand like many legacy automakers. Some traditional OEMs build a multitude of cars that sit on dealer lots for quite some time. Tesla doesn’t have dealerships where it can simply drop off inventory and move along. It has to rely on multiple holding lots, a lack of an adequate supply of car haulers, and a smaller number of delivery centers in various areas of the country.The report reminds us that Tesla manufactured 5,300 Model 3 sedans in the final week of the third quarter and almost certainly each one had already been spoken for.1redDrop concludes that Tesla’s successful ramp-up of Model 3 production and delivery timelines should only work to attract more buyers. So, don’t expect to see the automaker showing high inventory numbers anytime soon.Source: 1redDropTESLA MODEL 3 read more
