In 1985 Frank Castagna, chairman of Garden City-based Castagna Realty Co. - which has owned and operated the Americana since acquiring the property for it in 1955 - approached Marino about creating a master redevelopment plan.

"I responded that I'm not asking you to do a shopping center," Castagna told the gathered guests, "but to redefine the Americana and plan our future.

Americana Manhasset

The shopping center might have ended up like so many other malls - losing customers, teetering on the edge of oblivion - were it not for the foresight of Frank Castagna, Castagna Realty's chairman. 'Great Gatsby'

In the 1980s, Castagna concluded Americana could be more successful if it catered to the wealthy residents on Long Island's North Shore.
"I've lived in this area for 60 years, so I knew we had customers who wanted luxury products and no one else here was serving them," Castagna said.
The trick was persuading locals to shop in the area rather than head to Madison Avenue boutiques or jet to Paris. Castagna took heart from Hirshleifers, a family-run store in the mall already doing a brisk business selling Armani and Chanel. As old leases expired, Castagna wooed top-tier retailers and Hirshleifers kept expanding.
In 1996, Castagna, a board member of a half dozen Long Island nonprofits, started Champions for Charity, which is held the first week of every December; customers direct 25 percent of the price of their purchases to local causes.
Yet at 86, Castagna still spends part of each workday walking around stores to gauge what's selling.
Behind the scenes, Castagna continues to tweak the formula.

Frank Castagna of Castagna Realty offered the brothers a location that was also at The Americana Manhasset; it seemed only logical to say yes.

With the continued help of Frank Castagna, Gillis and George went on to open up the very popular French Bistro at the Wheatley Plaza.
