Happy to see more good development news for the Village of Patchogue. It helps keep a vital, dynamic revitalization spirit moving forward, much like the way urban Brooklyn as well as nearby Bay Shore have bounced back from the brink of deterioration. On a related note--Will the "Y" have a "Holiday" or "Christmas" themed seasonal series of events after opening? I have the feeling that if you decipher the Y.M.C.A. or Y.W.C.A. initials the answer will be obvious. Hope the Grucci's,(maybe they are the anonymous $10 million donor) provide fireworks for the grand opening.

the large influx of "guest workers" in patchogue will ensure this anchor will be just that, sunk and out of sight within 2 years of it opening

I live in Patchogue and I can't visualize exactly where this is going to be. There's already a huge gym in the Briarcliffe College building.
Sounds like this may put them out of business

I'm glad they are building this and can't wait for it to open. It will make it closer for the local schools (public and private) to have swimmning lessons for the kids. It will also make it easier for my husband and I to bring our son down to swim.

Does anyone know what will happen to the facility in Holtsville? Will it stay open or is the one in Patchogue replacing it?

The article said the Holtsville location will remain open. I think this is another great addition to the Village of Patchogue. Everytime I am in Patchogue I see new restaurants and coffee shops and every one I've tried has been very good to great. Even with the less than stellar economy, Main St. seems to be quite vibrant. People are really dedicated to shopping locally and do not have a sprawled out Nassau County approach.

I think this is great news too -- I'll definitely join.

I love that Patchogue is once again a place where you can spend the day (library, shopping) and then go out at night (restaurants, theater).
