Empty In Huntington: Former Sun Ming Chinese Restaurant

Tell us what you want on the vacant property.

Walk down Main Street or drive down Route 110 in Huntington Station and you will notice some vacant storefronts adorned with "For Rent" signs, a possible indication of the hard times the area — and country — are facing.

The Town of Huntington hasembarked on a  to spark economic growth in the area and fill empty sites with businesses and housing.

Huntington Patch will spotlight empty properties to foster discussion in the community on what can, should and could be done to rehab abandoned places.

This week's property is the former Sun Ming Chinese Restaurant, located at 1000 W. Jericho Turnpike, which closed several years ago.

What do you think should go here? Tell us in comments.

I think a 7-11 or a Dunkin Doughnuts would be a gold mine. Round Swamp Road is a major route to the Northern State Parkway and the L.I.E. if you want to avoid all of the traffic lights on Rt. 110. They would do very well with commuter traffic.

I would like to see something there than what is now. Yes tear it down would definitely look better. I just think this is a dangerous corner, so whatever goes in this location would have to consider that. A fast food place with in and out traffic might not be so safe. Sonic not such a good idea too busy for that corner. Flatten and landscape the property is ideal.

A community garden. 35 percent of Suffolk County males are obese, and another third merely overweight. It's 30 percent for women. Either that or a park with fitness stations.

7-11, or a nice quaint garden with benches or something. It is an incredibly busy corner and so perhaps an area where people are just out and exposed wouldn't be the safest. All I can say for sure is that we don't need any more banks. Maybe just leveling it would allow it to be sold more quickly.
