The LaGRANGE IS SCHEDULED FOR A TOI ZBA Hearing OCT 25....CVS IS PLANING TO DEVELOP ON THE SITE....
I Know most people don't care about this site Tom Barraga developed the LaGrange Task Force..Some years ago.Tom might want to reactivate this community group and lead the charge to at least ensure that the site is preserved in some manor.Tom is a good man who cares about West Islip Call him an at least get some answers concerning any planes for the LaGrange....Save the LaGrange

It's my understanding that the LaGrange is going to use one of the window from the original structure for the drive uo window....As most can agree this building was neglected to the point that most people would agree to replace it with something else.Great strategy by the owners.Once again West Islip gets to throw the baby out with the bath water .Lets take a walk through History West Islip Land developers capitalized on Burning down buildings in West Islip for years without anybody paying attention...It's cheaper to burn it down then to knock it down..So beware of the concept which is the MO of these Land owners in our community.. Once upon a time West Islip had a Very influential family who bought up Land and developed on it.This was during the years when West Islip was burning kinda Like the Bronx...Land Marks disappeared from the Map.And the building began at a rapid pace .Now some would think that this was progress .I wonder....?????.Also interesting is how a sleepy community like West Islip could become so contaminated by Hazardius Chemicals.The Rail Road Yard Dzus fasteners ,Gas stations which no longer exist but the tanks still remain buried under ground because the regulations did not require the Land Lourdes to remove the tanks prior to the Sara title III Law was written .Unless you know the history of this wonderful Town things get over Looked...My point is nobody is paying attention Most of the people we elect to office these days don't understand the nature of our community. why they haven't lived long enough to remember the weather events that was normal...Some how even before four wheel drive the cars made the trip to where ever .Snow tires and studs. chains where appled to the rear wheels...We made it through the Snow events .Yes it is an inconvenience without a dought .But we made the best of it...I'm off on a rant sorry...It's disturbing to me why we as a community have to go negative most of the time and not take the time to investigate the issues before we attack the reputations of people public and private .This is my 2 cents I hope I didn't offend anybody that wasn't my intention .West Islip was alway a strong community because we had people who would step up and lend a hand.Never complain about getting a job done .Turn a negative into a positive ...That was West Islip.A can do community...I assume you guest that I have been in this Town for some time and you are right....Hope for the best but brace yourself for the worse....

Can they just tear this eye sore down already. Enough with the historic site. It looks like a little piece of Wyandanch. I hear the owners of CANS are interested. That would be great!

Remember how the Captree bowling alley was suspiciously burned down to make way for the King Kullen?
