Great song of growing up in Farmingville. Moved here in 1961 from Brooklyn and have seen some big changes not always for the best.

Suffolk has become just like Nassau- an over-crowded sea of parking lots and houses that make you feel more like you're living in Queens than in suburbia.

With the taxes you all pay to live in that stye, the streets should be paved with gold. Instead, they're littered with crap and traffic, and the pols get rich on your money while using it to destroy your quality of life.

Yes...just what LI needs..."Hero" half the strip-malls, stores, factories and warehouses sit empty.

I remember Farmingville, when Horseblock was still a 2-lane road, when I was a kid. It was quiet and beautiful- a nice town nestled in woods and hills. Now, it's just another nondescript place in which to house the labor force.

What a crime, what they've done to that whole island- which was once such a beautiful and unique place.

I left 12 years ago. Never been back since. Let the waves of immigrants from Brooklyn have it....nothing there for 1st-world people anymore.

We don't have a southern border or rule of law on immigration. This is what happens when globalization fails and multiculturalism fails hard. The price is western society. White people will make up 47% of the population by 2050 from a high of 85% in 1960's.

If you think that isn't a bad statistic you need to move to Mexico. Call it whatever you want but having huge net influxes of people is not good for wages, living standards, or social services.

# 1770: The first settlers come to Farmingville. The first roads are named Pond Road, Horseblock Road, Farm to Market Road and Portion Road.

# 1771: The eastern part of Granny Road is surveyed and cut from “Granny” Larsen’s home to what is today’s Route 112.

# 1772: The western part of Granny Road is surveyed and cut.

# 1785: Daniel Terry now owns all the land from Mooney Ponds Road to Rulands at Farm to Market Road, Koram,(which today is S.E. of Route 112).

# 1790: Washington wrote in his diary, of 7 or 8 farms in the area and “Within two miles of Koram there are farms, but the land is on indefferent quality much mixed with sand:” He wrote of “Intolerable Hills. Land survey labeled as “The Pine Barrens” or “Bald Hills.” These hills were barren of heavy tree growth thus their name. A survey map shows five homes: 3 on Granny Road including David Terry’s (where Hansen’s gas station stood on the corner of Harmon and Horseblock Road), and 1 east of Granny Road which was Timothy Brewster Terry’s. Daniel Terry’s house was at junction of Horseblock Road and Mooney Pond.
