The first step to rebuilding (or building up) a neighborhood is businesses like this. Eventually you will clean up and run out the undesirables due to the fact they have nowhere else to go. Yes it's a longshot over there because, as stated, some of the businesses like the gas station on the corner of Depot and NY Ave (110) allow the people to hang out. Also the ethnic background of the neighborhood has a lot of the day laborers over there looking to make a better place for themselves in the world. But All-Weather Tire and Community Market do NOT allow people to hang out and I feel safe at those businesses. But it's up to the local residents to show some pride and clean up as well. I hope he has success there, will drive by with the kids and check it out soon.

Arcades do not attract the right people. Remember Whitey Ford's in Wyndanch? It turned into a huge drug dealing spot.

Well who doesn't want a place to get good drugs, right? Just kidding. It's all up to the proprietor to decide what element he allows. I've seen good ones and bad ones. Hopefully he can make it happen. I guess we'll know pretty soon.

Looking forward to visiting. Hopefully they will have some vintage pinball machines, baseball machines, pokerino, fascination and other arcade games so old kaka's like me can come in and have some fun, win a few coupons and get my wife a prize. Don't let the pessimists wear you down. There is a group that frequent the patch with the attitude, "whatever it is, I'm against it". GOOD LUCK.
