April 20th, 2023 – The arrival of a special delivery was celebrated at the April Town Board meeting. About 2 months ago, on Saturday February 25th, Amy and Ian Steinberg were preparing for bed, as expecting and soon-to-be parents. When they found themselves on the Long Island Expressway the next morning … at 2:00 AM, they quickly learned the true meaning of the word “soon.”

So eager was their little girl to meet her proud parents, she decided that their arrival at Katz Women’s Hospital in Queens, would not come soon enough. Now actively in labor, Amy and Ian parked their car on the shoulder of the L.I.E. near the Bay Shore exit and called 911.

Within minutes, Suffolk County PD Officers, Sgt. Justin Carey, PO Matthew Siesto, PO Arnold Reyes, and PO Kenneth Bunger arrived on scene to render aid to the couple.

Less than a minute after that, Brentwood Legion Ambulance EMTs: Nelson Lopez, Colin Richardson, Christina Autera, Cynthia Casteneda and Emily Cassar responded and moved Amy into the ambulance where she gave birth seconds after, to a healthy baby girl: Cora Baylie Steinberg.

"Our congratulations to the happy parents! Such a beautiful baby girl she is, with such a beautiful name," said Supervisor Carpenter. "And, I should note, baby Cora’s middle name “Baylie,” is spelled “B-A-Y” (for Bay Shore exit), “L-I-E” (for Long Island Expressway). Her first name Cora, represents the three EMT’s whose names begin with the letter C," she added.

Amy and Cora joined the celebration via FaceTime.
