And residents and readers of Patch responded with what they'd like to see in that vacant business .
Take a look at what some had to say, and chime in on what should go there by taking the poll, below, and by leaving your thoughts in the comments section, below:
Lisa Patto: "I'd love to see a farmers' market in that spot or any vacant spot in Lindenhurst."
Lindy Mom: "Find something for the youth of Lindenhurst."
Denise Botiglione: "Definitely put the movie theater back there. It was so convenient and affordable."
Linda McLellan: "What about a two-floor science museum geared toward the children?"
Mildred Perrotta: "Why not make it a fine arts center?"
Melissa Gianninoto: "The issue with a fine arts center is funding, and with Suffolk having of its own, funds won't be coming from the . Maybe the YMCA or another organization could come in."
Jackie Milton: "Having CVS there would've been better than what's there now, another enpty store with a huge parking lot."
Bonnie: "Why can't we have more affordable entertainment for the kids; maybe a bowling alley? My husband and I would [also] love to see a comedy club in place of the old movie theater. There's plenty of parking, and it'd benefit the resturants in our area."
Kathy Wolfrom D'arrigo: "We need a sports store in Lindy!"
John Meyers Jr.: "Sonic or Dairy Queen"
Ronald Rizzo: "Sonic would make that intersection a death trap. Does anybody remember what Route 231 is like around Sonic? The families in Lindenhurst and the teens in Lindenhurst need a movie theater they can walk to and bring their dates to on a Friday or Saturday night."
Nicholas M. Turturro III: "My wife, Debbie, and I have differing opinions about what should replace the old Lindenhurst Theatre. She'd like a Trader Joe's, and I'd like another movie theater there."
Theresa: "I think another movie theater. Not a bank or CVS or boat store. Trader Joe's sounds good....Please not another pizza place."
Bob K: "Definitely not another bank! Or maybe something geared toward our young people where they can hang out (and not another bar), and keep them from hanging out on the corners."
Ali: "If it were to be a shopping location, I'd love to see a Trader Joe's, as well. I think another movie theater is a great idea, but we have South Bay and the one in Babylon so close. Why not something like a bowling alley?"
Ariel: "A movie theater, Traders Joe's or farmers' market are the best suggestions."
Lifelong Lindy Resident: "No more banks, beauty parlors or bars, please. Like the other folks have said - a movie theater, or some other sort of family entertainment. It's sorely needed."
FED UP IN LINDY: "I think the Village board should concentrate on the real issues in the Village. I think they should welcome big business to the neighborhood."
Brian Woodworth: "It needs to be represented well on the open market for a business to want the location. There needs to be Village involvement in the packaging - tax abatements and the like. We don't decide on what does go there; market forces do. We can decide on what doesn't."
