Part of the Psych center is to be torn down next year. They do not know what the future plans hold of the property. Would anyone make a guess? And what will happen to the area near the site - go up in value? I know Kings Park is already nice but would it get more exclusive? Think Stony Brook village north of 25A.

Thoughts?

Not sure which ones.

After more than a year's delay, officials announced Tuesday that demolition of up to 15 abandoned buildings at Nissequogue River State Park is slated to begin in the spring.
The state is releasing up to $15 million to raze the buildings, which were part of the Kings Park Psychiatric Center, state Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey said in a letter State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport) received Tuesday.
Demolition of the buildings, originally set for the fall of 2010, has been held up by the state budget crisis. Local lawmakers and community leaders had lobbied state officials to release funds set aside in 2006 to level the structures.

They gave a lot of acreage to Nissaquegue (sp) state park and I believe were suppose to give more. I'm not sure of the exact amounts - it is documented though. I cannot see having affordable housing or section 8 houses on such a prime spot.

I guess a developer could buy some of the land and build 800k houses with 18k year taxes but I don't know how many buyers they would have...

I think they have to "clean" up the site first which is beginning which is great but as far as big plans. I don't see anything happening for awhile. Economy, residents going crazy over anything stupid (casino, low income condos, large industrial area) and some buildings will still exist.

Who knows maybe a retirement community and have the property open and safe to the public for walking, riding. And please not another golf course...

After more than a year's delay, officials announced Tuesday that demolition of up to 15 abandoned buildings at Nissequogue River State Park is slated to begin in the spring.

The state is releasing up to $15 million to raze the buildings, which were part of the Kings Park Psychiatric Center, state Parks Commissioner Rose Harvey said in a letter State Sen. John Flanagan (R-East Northport) received Tuesday.

Demolition of the buildings, originally set for the fall of 2010, has been held up by the state budget crisis. Local lawmakers and community leaders had lobbied state officials to release funds set aside in 2006 to level the structures.

"It's going to take down buildings that are in very negative, bad shape, and hopefully it will create some local jobs," Flanagan said.

Removing the buildings, many polluted with asbestos, could be the first step in a longtime plan to develop the park for expanded public use.

"We've been waiting several years for the cleanup to finally begin, so this is good news," said Michael Rosato, chairman of the Nissequogue River State Park Foundation, a community group developing plans for future uses of the park. "This is a great first step in what we hope will be a complete remediation of the park over the next 10 years."

The 500-acre park overlooking the Long Island Sound is dotted with dozens of buildings that were used as clinics, dormitories for patients and staff, and support facilities. The hospital closed in 1996, and a portion of the property became a state park in 2000, with additional acreage added in 2006.

The structures to be razed include a smokestack and other buildings near an abandoned power plant, state parks department officials said. The state is expected to launch public bidding next month to select a private firm to do the work. The winning bid is expected to be announced in March, with demolition to begin in May.
"I think it's a good start to at least start cleaning up the derelict buildings," town Councilman Edward Wehrheim said. "I think they're the worst of the worst down there."

In a statement, Harvey said demolition and site restoration will take a year to complete.
"Removal of these deteriorated and unneeded buildings will represent real progress at the Kings Park site," Harvey said.

State lawmakers and community leaders envision rehabilitating and finding new uses for some of the park's other dormant buildings. A proposed master plan on the Nissequogue River State Park Foundation website calls for adding theaters, restaurants, a hotel and conference center.

Ant thoughts from the original post?
