First, today’s weather:

Partly sunny and warmer. High: 88, low: 72.

Here are the top 4 stories today in Shirley-Mastic:

  1. Newsday Media released an article about the new rise of home purchases in the Shirley area. The tri-hamlet has been attracting buyers because of the affordable shoreline homes right off the expressway. According to the market, house prices run from $270,000 for ranches to $800,000 for waterfront properties. (Newsday/Subscription Required)
