Staller To Benefit Village

Written by Gary Simeone Wednesday, 02 July 2014 00:00

If you’ve walked down Main Street recently , you’ve probably noticed a huge demolition site where a series of shopping outlets used to be . The site which is located at 231 Main Street is part of the Staller

Associates Project which includes 26 luxury apartment units and 3,100 square feet of retail space. Just a few blocks way at 285 Eastern Parkway, 27 additional housing units are being built as part of the

Staller project.

 

The developments, along with the new Jefferson Plaza Apartments on Main Street, bring multi-family housing and small retail units to the Village.

Growing up on Long Island, Christopher Mercaldo remembers how, as a child he spent countless hours with his family, marveling at the many different rides and attractions that Adventureland amusement park in Farmingdale had to offer. 

 

Like many kids growing up in the area, Mercaldo says he was smitten with the idea of having his own little slice of Disneyland-magic right here in his backyard. 

 

Adventureland first opened in 1962, at the height of a major suburban boom on Long Island. Over the last 52 years, several attractions have come and gone, but the park has continued providing the same family-friendly fun that it has for years.

Project Could Create New Community Center

For most village residents the Eastern-most quadrant of Farmingdale, across the Rt. 110 border, offers little more than just the Multiplex Cinema, Republic Airport, the Long Island National Cemetery, Dave &

Busters, and Adventureland. However, plans for a potential 10-15 year transit-oriented development project, centered around the former LIRR train station, could mean more business, housing and green space for the residents of East Farmingdale.

 

Located within the boundaries of the Town of Babylon, the East Farmingdale transit-oriented development project has historically received the support of Farmingdale village officials, including former Mayor

“Butch” Starkie who had been an advocate for the development along the East Farmingdale corridor.

 

Spotlight On Local Grad

The world is an open book for Sarina Turbendian, a Farmingdale State College Class of 2014 graduate and village resident. 

 

During the commencement ceremony at Hofstra University last May — when over 1,000 Farmingdale State College students received a diploma — Turbendian said that as she waited with anticipation to hear her name read over the sound system, she was more focused on making sure she did not fall down or shake anybody’s hand the wrong way. She said that it wasn’t until she had gotten home that the realization started to sink in. 

 

“Then it hit me… I graduated,” Turbendian said. “Four years went by so quickly.”

Written by Chris Boyle Friday, 13 June 2014 00:00

The Village of Farmingdale Board of Trustees met on June 2 to consider several building permits put forth by several local businesses, namely the expansion of local tavern Croxley’s Ale House at 190 Main St. downtown. 

 

During the meeting village board members voted unanimously to approve a special use permit to Croxley’s Ale House allowing the establishment to construct 

an outdoor gathering area and expand the available parking for customers, said Mayor Ralph Ekstrand. 

 

“They have purchased the building behind them, the old Safeway Electric place, with the intention to knock down the existing structures to construct an outdoor Beer Garden,” Ekstrand said. “Croxley Ales is a great place that I frequent often myself... for the past five years they’ve always paid the Village on-time when they’ve owed us money, and I see no reason not to grant their request once again.”

Making The Most Of Duct Tape

Written by Chris Boyle, farmingdale@antonnews.com Saturday, 07 June 2014 00:00

A bunch of young ladies were recently instructed on the crafty caveats of creativity with the most unlikely of materials: duct tape, which according to Farmingdale Young Adult Librarian Natalie Korsavidis, is a surprisingly big hit among the students in her art classes.

“Duct tape is very, very popular,” said Korsavidis, who runs all of the programs for kids in grades 3-12. “If something is popular with my teens, third to fifth graders usually tend to like it as well. I’ve done duct tape before with older kids, so I thought I’d try it with the youngsters this time.”

The parade assembled at Yoakum Street and Thomas Powell Blvd. before making its way south down Main Street towards the grandstand assembled in front of Village Hall.
