UPDATE: A reader named John sent the following flyer regarding this property @ 158 New York Avenue Long Beach, New York, along with the following passage:
On the flip side of your concerns, and as a person who lives in the area, I can see the development having a positive impact on the building on the SE corner of NY Ave/West Beech. Many a businesses have failed in the now empty commercial spaces of that building. In my estimation, it’s because no foot traffic makes it down that way. The new development could provide the ‘feet on the ground’ needed to bring life back to the eastern entrance of the west end.
A 30 Unit Building Coming to New York Avenue with No Parking? That’s what is on this month’s zoning board agenda! I am referring to 158 New York Avenue Long Beach, New York, the former gas station lot. Arcadia Mgmt. LLC of Long Beach filed an application with a waiver for off street parking. Wait, no parking?? Where are these people going to park?? The parking situation in that area is insane as it is. I hate to be a NIMBY person, but seriously, there is no parking in that area already. Maybe I’m missing something… Am I? Will there be parking underneath?
