And the mixed use development on Jericho Turnpike in Elwood that was killed. The list goes on and on. NIMBYism is killing Long Island.

I don't understand the "trees being brought down" concern..to me it is currently a hideous asphalt desert with a few buildings in there.

From what I see there will actually be more trees..

Default For those who may not be familiar with East Garden City

That question is impossible to answer, LilTownBlues, because the Lighthouse development project is NOT in Uniondale; the Lighthouse development project is in the Hamlet of East Garden City ("Uniondale, NY 11553 mailing address).


For those who may not be familiar with East Garden City:

East Garden City is a hamlet (an unincorporated area) in the northeast part of the Town of Hempstead, in the central part of Nassau County, along the Hempstead/North Hempstead town line.

Beginning on the north and moving in a clockwise direction, the Hamlet of East Garden City in the Town of Hempstead is bordered on the north by the Hamlet of Carle Place and the Village of Westbury in the Town of North Hempstead (the Hempstead/North Hempstead town line); on the east by the Hamlet of East Meadow; on the south by the Hamlet of Uniondale and the Village of Hempstead; and, on the west by the Village of Hempstead and the Village of Garden City.

East Garden City is one of those many villages and hamlets on Long Island where none of the places in the community have the hamlet name as part of their mailing address: places in the Hamlet of East Garden City have a "Garden City, NY 11530", "Westbury, NY 11590", "Uniondale, NY 11553" and "Hempstead, NY 11550" mailing address.

Here are some well-known places that are in the Hamlet of East Garden City:

Cradle of Aviation Museum, East Garden City (Garden City P.O.)
Fortunoff, East Garden City (Westbury P.O.)
Hofstra University Dorms, East Garden City (Hempstead P.O.)
Mall at The Source, East Garden City (Westbury P.O.)
Nassau County Community College, East Garden City (Garden City P.O.)
Nassau County Veterans Memorial Coliseum, East Garden City (Uniondale P.O.)
Roosevelt Field, East Garden City (Garden City P.O.)

I don't think this is ever going to be built. To much NIMBYism on Long Island.

Not impossible at all. All it takes is a little common sense and a willingness to overlook minor errors based on irrelevant terminology.

Ok then....
For or against the Lighthouse Development Project in the Hamlet of East Garden City with a Uniondale mailing address?

That's too much work...it's easier to just type Uniondale.

Give Walter a break. He keeps us accurate.

Although "East Garden City" raises a good point. I saw on News12 someone from the Garden City village government comming out against the project. The project is not within their borders. This is the kind of NMBYism that I find distasteful.

Not all that surprising considering support and opposition for this project has tended to break down party lines, especially among local political officials.

Neither is the project within the borders of the Village of Westbury; but, they, too, are making noises about getting some of the property taxes that will be generated from the project.
