Empty in Farmingdale: Gas Station Site

Tell us what you want on Hempstead Turnpike.

Walk down Main Street or drive down Route 110 and Hempstead Turnpike and you will notice many boarded up storefronts adorned with "For Rent" signs, an indication of the hard times the area -- and country -- are facing.

The Village of Farmingdale mayor and board of trustees  they hope will  and fill the empty sites with businesses and housing.

Over the next few months, Farmingdale Patch will spotlight these vacant properties to foster discussion in the community on what can, should and could be done to rehab these abandoned places.

This week's property is the located at 4800 Hempstead Turnpike, which is currently open but the owner is interested in selling the lot.

The 37,592 square foot property is available for sale at $399,000. There is currently air conditioning in the building and around 40 parking spaces. It was built in 1953.

Realtor for the property, New Hyde Park-based First Flag Realty, brands the space as a "great business investment." 

Want it to remain a gas station? Or be turned into another type of business by the new owner? Tell us in the comments.

There is a McDonalds on 109 and one further west on Hempstead. A McDonalds frachise can't be situated that close to another. McDonald's does not jeopardize locations by competing with itself.

Sonic. Checkers. I actually prefer this gas station to the one a little further down the road. That place is a dump and you can't pay at the pump.
