Update on my last post about the new building at 118 to 134 E. Park Ave, Long Beach, NY.
The latest issue of the Long Beach Herald actually has a rendering of what the new building will look like. Guess what? It looks like ANY TOWN USA!!! I can’t believe the building department is going to allow the destruction of historic Long Beach, NY happen right before our eyes. I am sorry Mr. Rettner, but this building looks just like every other building being made on Long Island and across America, not the “showpiece on Park Avenue” like you said it would. What a disappointment to go from 1940’s Spanish-style to a cookie-cutter looking building. Blah… If you want a preview of this building, I am sure you can find one that looks exactly like it on either Sunrise Hwy, Hempstead Tpke, or any other crappy looking road on Long Island.
