Homeless missions would fit the bill. The people are taxed beyond their means in New York. The Lefty Lib Dems want you broke and dependent on the government.

The commercial areas in Smithtown have always been a dump. What good is a Master Plan, if no one follows it?.

Open up some Second Hand Clothes Stores.
Junk Shops, Food Pantry, Discount Walk in Medical Clinics. Homeless Shelters.
Camping Supply Stores, Clear some Camping Areas on the Asphalt to set up some Tent Cities. The Future is very grim for those
that struggle to hold on.

How a village has certainly fallen...

I remember back in the day when Smithtown was a place many aspired to live. Great neighborhoods, great schools, and access to just about everything...

Very sad to read...

One of the members of the Smithtown Town Board prompting this change OWNS two of those now-shuttered car dealerships properties. That's a HUGE conflict of interest! The corruption in my town never ceases to amaze.
