A Visit with Santa Claus

From LONG ISLAND – by Ann Parry (ann-parry.com)

As the Roosevelt Field mall and the Long Island community it’s served since 1956 continue to grow and change, one of the mall’s enduring traditions is Santa Claus’s visit at the end of each year, when parents have their children’s pictures taken with him.

Parents JULIANA CARREON and ISMAEL CARREON took him to visit the jolly man at Roosevelt Field, one of the 10 largest shopping malls in the United States of America, and on the site where aviator Charles Lindbergh began his historic solo transatlantic flight to Paris in 1927.

This Thanksgiving week I took news photos of Santa’s visit with 3 1/2-year-old Patrick and his family. And it turns out my older daughter and her husband took their six-month-old son to visit Santa right there earlier that week.

UPDATE: This Long Island Weekly (publ. Anton Community Newspapers) cover photo is from my photo shoot of Santa and Patrick:
