Question of the Day: Main Street Needs?

There's a great number of businesses on Main Street in Huntington village, but what does the area lack, if anything? What would you like to see move in?

There's no doubt that Huntington is hub of activity with a great number of businesses and offerings. But is there anything you would like to see come to the Main Street area that does not exist there now? 

What type of business would you like to see move there? Why is Huntington a good fit for the business you are suggesting?

Marjorie, I was going to mention Hartmann's, but figured no one would remember that store here! My mother and I would shop for fabrics there, in that tiny basement room. She also got our Scout uniforms there and pants for my brother who was so skinny, apparently no other store had his size! Funny the things you remember!

What Main Street needs is less regulation...more waterfront restaurants and more appartments and condos in town. The Town of Huntington needs to relax its land use regulations and let the market determine land use.

I think the parking lot behind Dunkin Donuts should be cleared out to form a square with some outdoor cafes where people can walk, sit, have something to eat and people watch. The village lacks any real area where people can stroll, sit and hang out, catch some rays, and watch Huntington life. Just as long as it doesn't become infested with teenagers getting dropped off by parents looking for free time at night, then it can be something good.

Does anyone remember a ladies clothing store on Main St, a few doors down from Hartmann's? It catered to an older clientele. I remember my grandmother shopping there in the 1970s.

Huntington desperately needs better parking so that all of the goods and services desired by patrons can be realized. The three parking areas in Huntington should be considered for multiple deck parking. The best parking lot for such a facility would likely be the parking lot off Wall Street south of Main Street.
