Staller To Benefit Village

If you’ve walked down Main Street recently , you’ve probably noticed a huge demolition site where a series of shopping outlets used to be . The site which is located at 231 Main Street is part of the Staller

Associates Project which includes 26 luxury apartment units and 3,100 square feet of retail space. Just a few blocks way at 285 Eastern Parkway, 27 additional housing units are being built as part of the

Staller project.

 

The developments, along with the new Jefferson Plaza Apartments on Main Street, bring multi-family housing and small retail units to the Village. 

 

“These projects bring people to our Village with disposable income who will shop at our stores and eat at our restaurants,” said Farmingdale Mayor, Ralph Ekstrand. “They will help bring a presence to our

Village and make Farmingdale the place to be.”

 

Mayor Ekstrand added that he hopes the new apartments and retail outlets will bring younger people back to the area to give them the incentive to shop locally in the village.

 

“A lot of the people who live and work here are part of the baby boomer demographic and I hope with these projects that young people will feel they can come back to one of the great communities on Long Island,” said Ekstrand.

 

The project at 231 Main Street will feature a brick layout similar in appearance to St. Kilian Church  and large glass plate windows. It is a transit oriented development that is located in the heart of Main Street and is a three minute walk fro the train station. The complex will have three floors and and will be outfitted with high rise balconies and will have self contained parking availability.

 

“I love the idea of balconies on Main Street” Ekstrand said. “It will give the street sought of a New Orleans flavor and will allow people to interact with each other from balcony to street level. It will also promote walkability in the Village.”

 

The project is expected to take 18 months to complete.

 

The Staller project on Eastern Parkway is a $7.5 million dollar project that includes 40,000 square feet among 27 rental apartment units. The 3 1/2 story building that is being planned is currently in a demolition phase and work will commence once the final blueprints and engineering specs have been completed. Work is expected to begin in three to four months. The new development will also offer self contained parking on its premises.

Driving rain and cold temperatures could not keep Long Islanders from coming out to support the first annual DogFest Walk ‘n Roll, a fundraiser for Canine Companions for Independence. Held for the first time at Marjorie Post Park in nearby Massapequa, dogs of all breeds and sizes came with their humans with one goal in mind; to raise funds for CCI.

 

Event organizer Yvonne Dagger, past president and now board member, discussed the importance of the event. 

It’s been more than 50 years since the Farmingdale High School class of 1964 roamed the halls of their beloved high school, but that doesn’t mean that the memories have faded. The class—the first to graduate from Farmingdale High—came together on Saturday, October 18 at the Marriott in Islandia to celebrate all of the good times past and make new memories as a class.

3rd Grade Division

The Giants and Jets met for the 2nd time this season, with the Giants again getting the victory over the Jets.  Jalen Gordon scored late into the 1st half for the Giants, which turned out to be the only points in the half.  The Giants shut the Jets down for both halves, keeping the offense off the board.  The Jets strong point this weekend was the defense, with Kyle June and Jake Kuller picking up the weekly William June Foundation awards.  In what is turning into a rough offensive season for the Jets, these awards continue to remind the boys of the perseverance and determination of the award’s namesake and his “never say quit” attitude.
