Empty in Huntington: Checkers Restaurant Site

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 Checkers restaurant location at 1680 New York Avenue in Huntington Station which closed late last year.

Police annex, police station.....why not bring in the National Guard?

There's certainly a lot of empty restaurants and businesses in Huntington Station. Any comment from our Town Board? Nothing but silence. Of course, if this happened in Dix Hills or Cold Spring Harbor, or Huntington Village, where they all live, then there'd be an issue. No representation for Huntington Station...

How about another place that makes curly fries?

How about another bodega!

As long as taxes are sky high we will continue to lose business after business...as you can tell.

Anybody living in the area knows that that part of Huntington Station needs a overhaul! It's not just about the area by the train station. We need our reps in Town Hall to WAKE UP and take notice. Does anybody know when The Renaissance company headed by Donald Monti is going to get started and where will they be revitalizing exactly? We need them to work in ALL of Huntington Station...

Who is Renissance Developers? Doesn't the Town of Huntington have a planning Department, a Community Development Corporation and an Economic Development Corporation? Why do they need someone else when we pay all these other entities? I WILL be at the meeting Lauren! Thanks for the information. I want to get answers to my questions!

How about a strip joint? That would fit in great there. Only a short drive from Huntington Village.
joe r February 25, 2012 at 11:59 PM
