Default Has Kings Park Changed at All?

Can anybody tell me if and what changes have taken place in KP over the past 10 years? Is there a McDonalds yet? Starbucks?

Is Ben Franklins still there?

Well, 10 years ago I was 13, so I more or less remember it then. I lived on the border of Smithtown and Kings Park. Ben Franklin isn't there anymore. I used to love going there as a young kid with my mom. Now it's TJ Maxx in case you don't know.

They closed down Key Food for a while, but I think 2 years ago or so it opened back up.

And in 1996 the Psych center got closed down. It's been going downhill since lots of people have been breaking in and taking the copper and pipes in just the past year. The state extended the park to where building 93 is (the really tall building).

Anyone else can feel free to add to this. I know there's more people out there who know the area lol

Also, I think the hardware store was knocked down around 10 years ago or so. It was right next to the train station. They turned that into a small shopping mall with a pizzeria, Blockbuster (where the hardware store was), Ekerd, and something else, I forgot.
