Somehow, Babylon was able to revitalise their downtown Main Street district.

Main street Patchogue began to falter when Smith Haven Mall opened. The three movie theatres lost to the drive-in on Sunrise and then the string of multi-plex theatres. The library became a resting place for homeless, as did the Post Office lobby.

When Swezey-Newins over-expanded, the home town touch for local shoppers was lost. The flood of welfare and illegals into the area didn't help.

Ignore the problem because it will never happen to you.
And you poor excuses for human cesspools paint everyone with a broad brush and villainize them. Focus on the politicians and businessmen who are using the exaggerated issue of illegal immigration to distract you while they rape our country financially.

Hey folks..have lived here all my life...it's not the same...but in those days, women stayed home, men worked, women didn't drive, all shopping was done in town. Wanna bring back those days? They're gone...truly gone. But we do have a fine library, a theater, and many good restaurants. We have a fabulous ferry ride to Fire Island, a train station right in town that brings us into Manhattan and Brooklyn, a bayfront that is a gem, a public pool, and some of the loveliest old housing stock on Long Island. We have people of all races and creeds, MANY churches, and some fine volunteers in all aspects of civic life. We don't need a whole lot more. Even got a clean, well-run supermarket on South Ocean Avenue, luckily the immigrant community shops there, so all the old-timers have a good grocery to walk to.

It's good, and getting better. Try it, you'll like it!
