Group opposes Roosevelt museum's Oyster Bay site

A group has formed to oppose the planned Theodore Roosevelt museum in Oyster Bay.

While scattered comments have been made against the proposed $100-million Theodore Roosevelt Presidential Museum and Research Center on Firemen's Field, adjacent to the railroad station, the opposition has been ratcheted up a notch with the formation of Save Firemen's Field.

The group takes its name from the 3.5-acre tract of open land -- now a town parking lot -- where the museum would be built.
