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 former deli on Fulton Street.
This storefront is new to the market, on the market for a little less than a month. Realtor Lou Lano of Gold Coast Reality & Finance Co. thinks the property will go fast because of location and its amenities. Fulton Street attracts a lot of traffic and there is street parking.
The old deli is located in between Main Street and Broadhollow Road. The owner is asking for $2,500 a month in rent for 1,150 square feet of space.
Everything is still intact from the previous deli. The lot comes furnished with a fully functioning kitchen, which means future owners may opt to put a deli or a restaurant back there.
Should another deli go there? How can that area on Fulton be spruced up? Tell us in the comments.
