This is a wonderful property for the town to buy. I often pass the area an it is a shame that this property could not be used for recreational purposes and perhaps somehow allow for the redirection of the waters to stop the flooding across the road. There is often wildlife in the road as well and I have seen them run over many times. If somehow they could be redirected onto a platform so they could cross safely, that would be wonderful. Lake Ronkonkoma is a jewel that has been treated shabbily over the years and I think it would be great if it could shine once again.

I often drive by the Bavarian Inn and it is a shame that it has just been neglected for the past few years. The collection of water is all green molded and I'm sure a real health hazard. It could be such a beautiful area for a park and ride or fishing and recreation.

The resturant was always a dump. I am surprized it stayed open as long as it did. I believe the park idea is a good one. What is not needed is out of place faux Victorian Houses 2 feet apart as what happens on most L.I. land.

I used to go to the Inn 25 years ago and it was pretty nice. It is sad what is going on over there but I'm not sure the taxpayers of Suffolk County should be picking up the tab on every piece of property that has problems. The situation over there is tragic, I have seen it firsthand, but the Bavarian made tons of money off that property. Now we should buy it from them because they can't make more off of it? It's sad that the peoples houses on the other side of the road are flooded also but are we going to but their houses also. What if the big hurricane floods the south shore wiping out hundreds of houses, will we buy them also? Will we be made to pay "fair market value" or get it for a song? There's a reason it hasn't sold in over a year.
Gotta luv it

I believe it should be purchased and made into a lovely lakeside park. They finally pulled the trailors out of the land down the road, and you can actually see the park there. I would love to see the Bav Inn property improved along with the area where the trailors were. It's such a shame things looked so shabby over there for so long.

Bavarian should ask their former neighbor Jack West from Parsnips Inn on how to turn a dollar. So how do you make a fire? Just have a burglary and see if you get lucky if the cops want to screw somebody.

Ha, ha, Jack, the case was thrown out and you sold your drunken soul to the devil.

The best solution would be for Donald Trump to abandon his Ocean front taxpayer owned site, and plop his Trump on Lake Ronkonkoma instead, I'm sure Trumpy could get all the variances he'd need. Then the beach wouldn't be scarred by Trumps monstrosity, and the Old Bavarian Inn could be upgraded from its eyesore status.

Bavarian Inn had really good food. I'll miss it. Yes it is sinking into the lake. Must have had a sewage problem. I would say that the county should just keep it a parking lot so we can enjoy the Beauty of the lake. Lake Ronkonkoma is really un-appreciated. It really is a very nice pretty place on LI. It is nice to have a Lake and both shores.The area is a nice place to live..,and getting better. Suffolk county should buy it so no condos ruin the beauty for all to enjoy..

Hi, I'd like to get a group of 4 together including myself to buy this dump and turn it into a major Suffolk attraction. Open to all ideas, especially "outside the box" serious inquiries. Please contact me at bassplayermatt@yahoo.com OPEN TO ALL serious suggestions (references and credit to be validated). Mr Levy please contact me also. Thank You.

This dump should have been condemed years ago. I don't know about you, but I never liked eating in a place with a cesspool truck in the parking lot. The owners should have to tear it down at their expense. Suffolk County should'nt get involved.

On Long Island we are surrounded by water and yet public access is severely limited by exploding development over the past 20 years. Here is a chance for the county to increase access for all residents. It comes at a time when the investment may be minimal relative to the likely value of the site in a only few year. This is Long Island's largest lake with a colorful history. We have a chance to make its future part of a larger, well-considered plan. Such opportunities do not come every day and I applaud Legislator Kennedy for his foresight. Mr. Zwim's antics aside, I encourage the County to continue on its course, not to help bail out Mr. Tramontana, but to offer him a fair price for a property that no longer meets his needs. In so-doing we might secure an important freshwater access site for generations to come.

Actually that part of the Lake is owned by Smithtown.

THE WATER THAT IS FLOODING THE HOMES ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE BAVARIAN INN IS NOT FROM NATURAL RAIN FALL, THE TOWN OF SMITHTOWN HAS BEEN PUMPING WATER TO THAT AREA FOR YEARS. HAVE YOU NOTICED, WHAT HAPPENED TO ALL THE WATER FROM OLD NICHOLS RD. IT JUST DIDN'T DISAPPEAR. JUST GO DOWN BROWNS ROAD AND FIND THE CEMENT GRATE, ITS ABOUT 5 FT WIDE, WITH WATER RUNNING OUT OF IT. HOW WOULD YOU LIKE A RIVER RUNNING INTO YOUR BACK YARD?

I worked in this so-called "dump" for more than half of my life from the time I was 13 and periodically until I was 27. It truly is a travesty what has transpired. There are hundreds of people that have worked there and I'm sure many, like myself are deeply saddened at the passing of a hallowed institution. As worn and haggard a building as it may have been, the memories inside that building will live forever in the minds of employees and patrons alike.

Since you were there maybe you can help the rest of us with insight?

Was it the owner or the town off Smithtown who led the BI down the path to ruin?
