Nassau County is also on the short list for the museum. If selected, it would be at Wildlight.....

Now that says all you need to know about the seriousness of this project. WTF?! Did American Beach lose out for not having enough African-American historic or symbolic relevance?!

I doubt American Beach would want a Black History Museum. Most there consider it to be a residential neighborhood. They'd oppose something that would result in more tourist making noise and speeding past their homes.
