I am curious to know what are anyones thoughts here as well as updated knowledge regarding any plans. Despite the eyesore, I look towards the King Kullen shopping center, sadly that store is in the red, why, because a good majority of people are driving out of the community because the prices are high. If only King Killen would sell to a pathmark that shopping center would flourish. The the town can focus a bit on the Kmart, break it up, a few nice stores, perhaps an Applebees might be one of a good choice. Could also add a little senior center, something for a non profit that offers services for the immediate community. It can be a nice set up but it starts with the King killen, Im sorry, just a random thought, rant, your thoughts?

What would you like to do, I am referring to the old Kmart building, Im new around here. Maybe people who live around here should be more proactive by contacting the town and inquiring. I thought a pathmark as opposed to the King Kullen would bring life to the existing shopping center. Since most people dont really shop much cost of the prices. A Pathmark would bring alot of people to that shopping center. Then maybe like the poster added, a clothes store would be nice. A Starbucks would be awesome or even a dunkin donuts or anything like that. What else would be nice is an Applebees, a fun restaurant, one that is affordable for most. Anyway, if anyone comes up with any info., or contacts the town, please post. They do have town meetings that are televised, I watched one last night about a bldg. in Centereach and the residents of the community were involved. We have to become involved cause Brookhaven is aware. They said other towns take pics of these empty bldg and bring it back to there towns to more a less mock us and use it as an example that they dont want there town to look like ours, they actually said this.

....Super Wallmart in lieu of the eyesore....(KMART). Build the Applebee's out in front, good idea. It would also cause the closing of King Kullen.

What about the corner of Marconi & 25?

Then you contact the town and ask who you may speak to, you and a group of citizens have concerns regarding what we chatted about. Then post and we will take it from there. Also ask about when there is a meeting for Middle Island concerned citizens and the town as you and many others would like to attend, then post. We need to core info. then maybe we can get a nice group together and chat everyone must bring atleast one more middle islander to the group. Yes?
