The county owns it. GOOD! bulldoze it, plant trees that will help the flooding of that area. Don't try to combine it with a Park that is on the other side of the lake.

Been away and did not know it had closed. It should have been a good location for a restaurant, but I DO remember waves breaking across the parking lot a week after the bulkhead was finished, and the lake extending across SMithtown Blvd to the north side of the road.

So long WIlly and the guys.

If $86M is owed in taxes and the property owner cannot be found, why not just foreclose for the taxes and proceed with replanting the area? It can't be used for anything else anyhow since the lake has extended onto the property.

read again, folks...the County does not own it. The owner does now owe $86 mill in taxes. The DEC wouldn't let people put dirt on their lawn less than 200 yards away to keep the water out on Charles St, but you think they'll let whomever plant trees and do landscaping there, right on the water? Right...The current County park is adjacent to the site, not across the Lake. l say simply let the County play their eminent domain games and take it over, raze it, and just let it be. No parking lot, no park, no nothing. What good is it going to do to add it to the current park? At a cost of several million? For once, Levy is right not to spend money on a defunt site with little to no potential in the future.

The article says 86K owed in back taxes not 86M.

Wow, I used to live in Smithtown, on Terry Rd. just off Smithtown Blvd. a ways.

It's sad that an icon of my growing up (Bavarian Inn) has closed, even though I never once went there. I remember passing it many times and always being curious, and always thinking it was a quaint-looking place.

How on earth can the place owe $86 million dollars in taxes? How long would it take a place like that to take in $86 million gross in the first place?

The place is a dump and always was. Never a good time. But a good parking lot to get head in. You even have a run down strip of crack houses and that atrocious PARSNIPS right there too!
Hey Fatty~ Parsnips may not be a "Yacht Club", but I know plenty of great people that have had plenty of great times in that place! Just because the area in general & the Bavarian in was a dump, don't knock a small establishment that has offered many years of smiles & laughter to many. Then again, put me in a cardboard box & I'll still have a great time! I'm no pretentious L.I. snob!
