On October 13, 2010, the Babylon Village Arts Council honored Senator Owen H. Johnson at a fundraiser at the Babylon Masonic Lodge. Senator Johnson was instrumental in securing the initial funding for the not-for profit organization.
The Babylon Village Arts Council was formed in 2003 by a group of village residents who recognized the need to present various art experiences to the Babylon Village community. From that vision the Babylon Village Arts Council has become an integral part in the cultural lives of its residents.

NYS Senator Eric Adams states: "I am deeply disappointed by the breakdown in negotiations between Cablevision and Fox over the renewal of the retransmission consent agreement. Many of my constituents are unable to view programs carried by Fox 5 and MY9, including Major League Baseball playoff games and the NY Giants football game.
“Despite differences between the companies over pricing or other terms, under no circumstances should programming– and the exclusive sports broadcasts– be denied to New York and New Jersey area fans. It is imperative that transmission be restored to consumers immediately; the negotiating parties have an obligation to their patrons to avoid treating them as pawns during the consultations.
