Reports from Local Downtowns

At this time of uncertainty, we are beginning to see a number of downtowns being shuttered as bars, restaurants, and any place where multiple people congregate are running up against fears of and caution at spreading the Coronavirus.  While this is a socially responsible action that will help to save lives, in the short term these actions are having a number of adverse effects on our local communities.

Vision Long Island has collected a number of experiences from local restaurants and service businesses, but before we go into that we would like to encourage everyone reading this to find a way to responsibly patronize local establishments.  Many stores are offering curbside pickup or online shopping to help them get through this difficult time.  And your favorite restaurants are also currently open for business with takeout available.  We also urge you to consider gift cards in order to purchase something at a later date for yourself, or perhaps to give as a present.

Local shops are in a capable position to provide you with what you need in the short-term.  Many will also be willing to accommodate you if you contact them ahead of time with requests that will minimize contact and help to lower the spread of this virus.

Vision has connected to over 550 small businesses in over 45 downtowns as they weather the economic storm through the Coronavirus. We encourage people to responsibly patronize these and other open establishments who need your help in this time of crisis. Many of them have been there for local organizations and philanthropy – they now need our support.

In the meantime, here is a selection of updates from Long Island downtowns, more to follow…

Elmont

The hamlet of Elmont is a very culturally and economically diverse community that has been working on their revitalization efforts for many years.  Along the way they have had to work on quality of life and public safety issues.  The recent imposition of the Belmont Arena was the latest challenge.  

Today, Elmont remains one of the hardest-hit communities by the coronavirus, but the residents of Elmont are stepping up to meet this harsh reality. From hundreds of volunteers handing out food to residents in need, to restaurants donating food to overtaxed medical staff of local hospitals, such as Long Island Jewish Valley Stream, Elmont cares about community.

A considerable challenge facing Elmont, like each and every downtown, is the health of businesses during this pandemic. Elmont residents, business owners and elected officials are pulling together to try to keep businesses alive through this crisis.

Paul Sapienza, president of Elmont Chamber of Commerce, explains, “For a while in the 70’s and 80’s, there were t-shirts around Elmont with a giant apple and a little cookie leaning on it that said: ‘Elmont, the tough cookie, next to the Big Apple’.”

“Right on the Queens border we are just 15 miles from the global epicenter in Elmhurst, so our toughness has to prevail,” Sapienza states. “Tougher still is that Elmont is home to many health care workers and first responders who continue to struggle through this. In spite of all that, we are hanging on.”

According to Sapienza, “There are many eateries open in Elmont, doing curb-side and delivery. Many are using delivery services like Uber, DoorDash, etc., and/or delivering on their own.” Below is a list provided by the Chamber. Residents are encouraged to support their favorite restaurants.

Franklin Square

Franklin Square is home to both multi-generational residents who understand the longstanding appeal of the town, as well as newer residents who recognize it as a wonderful place to grow and raise a family. With empty storefronts increasing in Franklin Square’s business district, the community came together in early 2020 to discuss and consider how to revitalize the downtown in order to draw people into the community, to shop and buy. A steering committee was formed, comprising of Franklin Square residents and organizations, including the Franklin Square Civic Association and the Chamber of Commerce. Vision LI had the pleasure of participating in the first town wide meeting.

Just as the Franklin Square community initiated the process of shaping its emerging downtown revitalization program, it has come together now as the current health crisis poses new and unexpected challenges. One major challenge is the survival of local businesses.

The Chamber of Commerce, according to president Lisa Dellipizi, has been working to help the community support local businesses by sharing information and resources with its members and the public at large.

Chamber members have donated food to the local pantry, PPE equipment to those in need, and have donated services, free of charge, such as health insurance assistance, live streaming yoga classes, assistance with stimulus payments & SBA loans and free identity theft protection. The Chamber has also created a Website/Social Media Committee which helps local businesses stay afloat by letting them know about programs like the “Small Business Administration Economic Injury Disaster Loans.”

“Supporting each other and our local businesses will help them survive this crisis and be part of our community for years to come,” explains Dellipizi.

The Chamber has put together a working list of food establishments and other businesses offering pick up, take out or curbside. Please contact local businesses about their offerings.

Copiague

Saturday April 18th Day 34 of the shutdown brought us to the community of Copiague.

The hamlet of Copiague is a waterfront community in the Town of Babylon that also has a downtown and train station area that has been undergoing revitalization over the last decade.   In addition to their waterfront resources they have an active Town Park Tanner Park that services the community.    A very tight knit community their Chamber of Commerce, School District, Library and emergency services work with the Town of Babylon to plan and manage day to day operations. 

The community has rallied around their local businesses and in turn the small businesses have been offering discounts and providing free food and services to community organizations.

“We would like to thank all of the restaurants, deli’s pizza parlors that are open for take out business.  Many of our local merchants have websites and the capability of shipping so please keep them in mind also.   Gift cards are a great way to support them now so they can survive and you can use them once everyone is able to open back up” Sharon Fattoruso, Copiague Chamber of Commerce

Here are some of the Copiague restaurants that are open for take out or delivery:

Wyandanch

Friday April 17th day 33 of the Coronavirus shutdown took us to the community of Wyandanch

Wyandanch’s downtown has been undergoing a revitalization process for many years.  A renovated train station with a parking garage, youth center, health center, ambulance corp, renovated post office, new housing development and plaza space have all been part of the areas improvements over the last two decades.  Sewers were put in place for the business district and their main street, Straight Path,  was narrowed to create some needed traffic calming to improve walkability.

Originally the Wyandanch Weed and Seed coalition, Wyandanch Rising initiative, Wyandanch Community Development Corp, Library District, School District, Wyandanch Leaders Network, community churches, emergency services the Town of Babylon, Suffolk County and many others have all taken part in these initiatives.   The Wyandanch Plaza Association manages the many community activities at the public space by the train which includes major holiday themed events, cultural activities, dance, art, music and an ice rink.

With the shutdown forced by the Coronavirus crisis like many downtowns the focus shifts to immediate needs of food, health and income support which are addressed by multiple layers of government, community organizations and churches.

There are businesses that are open through the shutdown and local groups are encouraging residents to support them.

Here is a selection of restaurants open for take out or delivery:

Bella Oriente Restaurant Deli (631) 586-0893

Brooklyn Fish, Chicken, and Soul Food (631) 920-5800

Mastic-Shirley

Thursday April 15th day 32 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown took us to the communities of the Mastic’s and Shirley.

Over 45,000 residents are in the Mastic/Shirley peninsula that includes Mastic Beach and a number of smaller communities and neighborhoods.  This peninsula has access to beaches, parks, a commercial business district and strong library, schools and emergency providers.   The William Floyd Estate provides a strong sense of history for this diverse community. 

The William Floyd Community Summit, the Chamber of Commerce of the Mastic’s and Shirley and a range of organizations help plan, promote and bring together these neighborhoods under one banner.  As part of their revitalization efforts Vision has worked with these communities for many years to redevelop their commercial districts and bring sewers into the area where funding was finally secured.

Through this shutdown many initiatives were underway to help local residents and first responders.  The William Floyd High School technology teachers have teamed up to help fulfill a critical need — creating face shields for healthcare workers on the front lines at Long Island Community Hospital in Brookhaven.

The educators are made 500 face shields using their two full spectrum laser cutters  printed about 15 to 20 masks per hour to meet their goal.

The William Floyd Community Summit and chamber have stepped in also to raise money for a local food pantry that had been stretched thin due to high demand operating out of the Mastic Beach Property Owners Association.  They have also been working to support local businesses through this crisis. 

“It is vitally important that we support our local businesses now more than ever.  These businesses are the ones that support our many community organizations and youth sports teams and now they need our support.”
Beth Wahl, President, Chamber of Commerce of the Mastic’s and Shirley

Rockville Centre

Wednesday Day 31 of the Coronavirus shutdown took us to the Village of Rockville Centre.

The Village of Rockville Centre, awarded Vision Long Island’s “Sense of Place” designation at the Smart Growth Awards in 2018, is a vibrant community with a thriving downtown. With the growth of downtown businesses and residential development, the Village has been able to both retain millennials and seniors alike. With beautiful parks and services, families are also drawn to this area, creating an urban suburban feel.

Recent economic impacts, resulting from the present pandemic, threatens Rockville Centre’s upward trajectory.

Like every downtown, the community is trying to weather the storm. “This administration continues to work to ensure public safety, prioritize health and welfare of our residents and reduce the circle of exposure of Covid 19 in our community,” says Francis Murray, Mayor of Village of Rockville Centre. “We are confident that as a community, we will whether these challenging times together as we always do.”

Downtown businesses are feeling the stress and the local Chamber is doing its best to remind the residents of the importance of supporting these businesses. “Our village is filled with passionate and unique merchants that give Rockville Centre its identity. Be sure to support the individuals whose expertise and homegrown experience make our business community so special. During these times they need us the most! Remember to shop local,” the Rockville Centre Chamber of Commerce advises.

The Chamber outlines various ways that residents can easily help support local businesses: Share their social media pages to improve their following; talk about them, word of mouth advertising is the best advertising; and buy gift cards to use a later date.

Below is a working list of restaurants offering pickup, take-out or curbside compiled by the Rockville Centre Chamber of Commerce. Please call and ask any local businesses about their offerings.

Middle Island

Tuesday April 14th, Day 30 of the Coronavirus shutdown, took us to the hamlet of Middle Island.

Middle Island is a close knit suburban community in the heart of Brookhaven. It features access to parks, trails, a strong library and school district servicing multiple communities.

The Longwood Alliance and Middle Island Civic Association are very active and have led the charge to help create a downtown area with local restaurants and housing. These efforts have resulted in approval for a new zoning, preserved land, trails, new housing and a renovated and expanded library.

Since the shutdown the community has pulled together in ways that are inspiring. Multiple charity drives, support for front line workers and an effort to shop at local restaurants still open. It was great to see multiple local restaurants that are hurt from this crisis themselves donate food for many community needs.

“To fight the virus, we need doses of the good news more than ever. I’m amazed and uplifted by the generosity and selfless dedication displayed by our local vendors and workers. Their stories are the golden nuggets of goodness that help all of us feel better,” Gail Lynch Bailey, President, Middle Island Civic Association

Manhasset

Day 29 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to the hamlet of Manhasset.

Possibly the most jarring sight in the downtown during this shut down is to drive past their train station parking lot and see literally two or three cars in the middle of a business day.   In a community that prides itself on a short commute to New York City, this is unheard of even compared to the days following 9/11 and Sandy.   

Manhasset residents and business owners have been focused on charitable endeavors during this time.  The Manhasset Community Fund has announced a Special Drive to provide immediate support for our local charities that are straining under unprecedented need.

John Morse, Fund President, released the following statement: “The COVID-19 virus has impacted many families in Manhasset and has hit those least able to cope the hardest.”

“Families that lost paychecks have a dire need to purchase food, medicine, and the basics for their kids.  Funds raised will be used to help,” indicated Diana Holden, Executive Director of Adventures in Learning.”

Since 1946, The Manhasset Community Fund, staffed entirely by non-paid volunteers, has supported people who have significant challenges in our community.

In addition to helping their neighbors some businesses are still functioning and community spirit comes through.

“Businesses and restaurants continue to adapt in order to remain open with some now switching to only curbside pickup. The Chamber continues to provide resources where they can to help businesses try to navigate the SBA loan application process.

On our residential streets, families have moved their backyard chairs to the front yard so they can take advantage of the good weather days and socialize from a distance with neighbors who walk and bike past. The sense of community remains strong even as we follow the guidelines and practice social distancing. “
Susan Auriemma, VP, Greater Coalition of Manhasset Civic Associations

Easter Sunday

Day 28 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown was Easter Sunday and for many years this weekend would have Main Streets and local parks populated with Easter Bunnies giving out candy, Easter Egg hunts and other family gatherings. Chocolate shops and bakeries would be bustling with orders, churches would be filled and caterers were working overtime to handle family gatherings.

This year traditional Easter themed events were shut down but many villages and downtown districts found ways to keep the spirit alive.

In Valley Stream the Easter Bunny was at the park for folks to see but families stayed in their cars. In Lynbrook the Easter bunny delivered candy from a vehicle but no gathering was held. In Sayville the Easter bunny appeared on Saturday but from a safe distance.

An Easter Egg hunt continued in Huntington with an Egg Hunt Trail through Cold Spring Harbor, Huntington, Centerport and Northport. The City of Glen Cove held a “Spring Egg Hunt to Go”. Lakeview held a virtual egg hunt. The Village of Port Jefferson held socially distant Easter Bunny events as well.

All sorts of individual acts of kindness happened. Anonymous folks painted rocks with rainbows and messages of hope and love and placed them at shops around Main Street in Northport.

There was private sector generosity too…. many local chocolatiers and bakeries made donations to folks in need. Chocolate Works in Plainview donated activity kits for the holiday to food pantries in Hempstead and Medford.

Many religious denominations found a way to connect their followers to services virtually. Families under stay at home orders found ways to connect to family members and friends. We can only speculate but a fair amount of praying has been happening given the health, economic and social stress and pain folks are going through.

Great to see the Easter spirit and the holiday spirit from all faiths keep Long Islanders going.

East Meadow

Day 27 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to the hamlet of East Meadow.

East Meadow is a thriving community with many small businesses serving a large population. The Chamber of Commerce, Council of East Meadow Community Organizations (Cemco), and fraternal organizations all collaborate with the library, school district and emergency services to serve the community. They have access to Nassau University Medical Center, multiple adjacent colleges and are home to Eisenhower Park which is the central park of Nassau County.

Before the Coronavirus the Chamber of Commerce would convene over 100 restaurants for a Culinary Delights fundraiser to show the diversity of offerings in the community.

After the Coronavirus like most community business districts many businesses are shuttered.

The residents and shopowners have come together in a number of charitable endeavors. Residents have pulled together to feed hospital workers and local food pantries. The Chamber is assisting as well

“Over the last three weeks the chamber has launched a program to bring the Chamber and the Community together to support our essential workers, first responders and hard working small business owners,” said Richard Krug, President, East Meadow Chamber of Commerce.

East Meadow Chamber of Commerce, also hopes to help local businesses stay afloat by letting them know about programs like the federal government’s Small Business Administration Economic Injury Disaster Loans.

“We’ve been hosting virtual meetings to talk about the small business loan process and what that’s like,” said Richie Krug.

The Zoom videoconferences began as a way for chamber members to share ideas and how they’ve been coping during the pandemic. They have also encouraged the community to patronize the local businesses that are open.

Village of Bethpage

Friday Day 26 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes is to downtown Bethpage.

Bethpage is a tight knit community that features strong schools, a plethora of community, business and service organizations, local parks and Bethpage State Park. Their downtown business district is at a scale to service their immediate community and has commercial development and housing clustered in walking distance to their active train station.

In recent years they have been working successfully with NYS and other levels of government to fight pollution from the former Grumman facility. Simultaneously there has been an effort to revitalize their downtown and train station area led by the Bethpage Chamber of Commerce and Bethpage Community Council.
With the emergence of the Coronavirus crisis Bethpage continues to band together during these past several challenging weeks.

While many businesses are shuttered and working remotely, the streets are often lively with ‘socially distant’ walkers and bicyclists as they make their way around normally bustling streets and pathways to the adjacent Bethpage State Park.

The Chamber of Commerce strives to be a conduit of information to promote the restaurants and delicatessens that are open for take out and delivery, as well as constantly updating our members of the ever changing landscape of programs and loans available to small business owners.

Many groups and organizations band together to help out those in need. BK Sweeney’s partnered with Campagne House, Pappardelles Pizza, The Bethpage Fire Department, Ciminelli’s Pizza, C21 Catapano Homes, Zorn’s of Bethpage, Broadway Deli and the Lostritto Family of Steel Equities in running ‘Operation Hope’ which is an ongoing event to collect food and money for the food pantry of St. Martin of Tours Ministry, where there is so much need in these trying times.

Many clubs and organizations such as Kiwanis and the Bethpage Community Council and Bethpage School District all helped to promote and get the word out.

There have been other initiatives such as Pappardelles Pizza’s ‘Feeding First Responders’ and countless other random acts of kindness and collections.

“Like many ‘Hometowns’ we have banded together to help each other through, because it’s always in our darkest days that the Bethpage Light burns brightest! We pray for each other and all our friends and neighbors across the region to be strong, remain positive and stay well, “ said Teri Catapano Black, President, Bethpage Chamber of Commerce

City of Long Beach

Day 25 of the Coronavirus economic crisis takes us to the City of Long Beach.

Long Beach nicknamed “City by the Sea” is well renowned for its boardwalk, diverse neighborhoods, parks, playgrounds, recreational facilities and a range of local restaurants and businesses. They host a range of arts, music and cultural events, a film festival and a farmers market. They have their own bus system, a LIRR station and walkable and bikeable streets.

Superstorm Sandy displaced thousands of residents and flooding impacted every building in the City. Over $200 million dollars of damage occurred and the City and the range of organizations including the Chamber and a number of neighborhood groups have pulled together to recover and rebuild since the storm.

The Coronavirus economic shutdown has impacted the City like other downtowns across Long Island. Similar to Sandy the City and local organizations have pulled together to assist local residents through charitable endeavors and contributions to the local food pantries and their soup kitchen including also food delivery to the elderly.

Long Beach City Council President John Bendo sums up the spirit of the community: “Long Beach has a diverse group of outstanding small businesses that are very important to the community. During the pandemic, we are working with our Chamber of Commerce to both provide information regarding resources to help them and encourage residents to support the businesses to keep them open. We developed and shared a list of restaurants that are open for pickup and delivery and even added short term parking signs in front of these establishments to make it easier for their customers. Long Beach has a long history of welcoming folks to our iconic boardwalk and beautiful beach. When the Governor tells us groups are allowed to assemble again, we look forward to welcoming visitors back to our City.”

Village of Greenport

Day 24 of the Coronavirus economic crisis brings us to the Village of Greenport.

Downtown Greenport is a historic waterfront community on the North Fork. It boasts great restaurants, shops, a year round carousel, winter ice rink, nearby skate park, waterfront hotels and a charm that draws day trippers and tourists all year round. Independent restaurants and shops do best as opposed to chains – Aldo’s coffee withstood Starbucks, Greenport Harbor Brewing thrives, unique clothing shops and Goldsmith’s toy store are also destinations among many others.

With the shutdown from Coronavirus their is radically less activity but the community is still tightly knit and supportive of each their neighbors in need. Successful fundraising efforts came together to support the local food pantry at CAST, raised money for facemasks at Stony Brook Hospital and many other charitable endeavors.

Village of Freeport

Day 23 of the Coronavirus shutdown takes us down to the Village of Freeport.

The Village of Freeport features essentially three Main Streets: its Nautical Mile full of waterfront eateries, marinas and summer events; its Main Street and its North Main Street area (both of which have diverse restaurants) and local businesses serving the community.

The Village has a strong infrastructure with an active train station, bus service and its own Village electric service. Their library & recreation center also provide a wide range of services to the community.

Many community and religious organizations, their Chamber of Commerce, Arts Council and service groups like Friends of Freeport assist the Village in strong outreach and management in the community.

The Coronavirus economic impact to the Village has been significant but nearly 40 remain open to provide service to the community.

“Order your meal from one of our many restaurants offering take out of delivery, work on some gardening after visiting our local nursery for seeds for the vegetable garden or order your groceries online from our local supermarket.” Jenny Jorge, Freeport Chamber of Commerce.

The City of Glen Cove

Day 22 of the Coronavirus shutdown takes us up to the City of Glen Cove.

The City of Glen Cove has undergone over two decades of revitalization efforts from its waterfront to its core downtown. In recent years multifamily housing, a renovated movie theatre, shared office suites and new restaurants including a craft beer establishment have brought street life back to Glen Street. The City has great infrastructure including two downtown parking garages, walkable amenities like a library, senior center, catering facility, public space and the summer Downtown Sounds program organized by the City’s Business Improvement District.

If course this Coronavirus shutdown has hurt the community like every other but they are pulling together. The BID and the City are promoting the businesses that are open and the effort of the downtown restaurants feeding the Glen Cove hospital staff is heartwarming as well.

Creative ideas like the “Spring Egg Hunt To Go” replacing the big event done at their park also continue community spirit during these times.

“Many of our local businesses are currently open. Please support them where you can. I want to thank our local grocery stores for remaining open and I want to say a special thanks to the employees who come to work every day despite the risk.” Mayor Tim Tenke, City of Glen Cove.

Village of Port Jefferson

Day 21 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us up to the Village of Port Jefferson.

Lower Port Jefferson has been a waterfront tourism destination for decades with strong restaurants, public space, community center, ferry service an ice rink, waterfront hotel, comedy club and theatre and thriving local arts and culture. Upper Port has experienced revitalization in recent years with new multifamily housing, planned mixed use buildings and train station improvements. Both areas of Port have been planned with public input through their Comprehensive Plan process and managed actively by the Village of Port Jefferson and a number of community organizations.

As the Coronavirus shutdown hit the Village the Greater Port Jefferson Chamber of Commerce worked with local restaurants to provide free meals to Mather and St. Charles hospital workers during the COVID-19 crisis. “It’s hard to express in words how grateful we are for the dedication and selflessness of our community’s heathcare workers during this crisis, but we hope this effort is a way of showing our support and care,” said the chamber’s president, Mary Joy Pipe, of East End Shirt Co.

The Steam Room Restaurant prepared free meals for pick-up at St Paul’s Church and the Fifth Season is helped make the meals at the First Presbyterian Church Soup Kitchen.

Port Jefferson Village, the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Improvement District teamed up to offer free delivery services from restaurants in the 11777 zip code. The action was meant to help keep delivery drivers on-staff and actively working as the nation faces the new coronavirus.

Village of Patchogue

Day 20 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes us to the Village of Patchogue.

The Village of Patchogue have worked over the last two decades to revitalize its Main Street with restaurants, a range of housing options, investments in parking and a downtown theater. They host multiple events including the signature “Alive after Five” and through all these efforts are a destination for tourism

Patchogue’s leaders have brought the same energy that they use for their revitalization efforts together early to support local restaurants and small businesses through the Coronavirus shutdown.

On their website, patchogue.com, you will find information on what businesses are still doing business as well as important information for the community, including specific links for members to get needed recovery, relief and loan assistance information.

Through their social media they are running contests to win gift certificates for those getting Patchogue restaurant take-out.

The Chamber’s Restaurant Committee has partnered with Qwik Rides and Late Night Chauffuers to provide free delivery service to those within a 3 mile radius of downtown Patchogue.

Better Man Distillery is sponsoring a weekly Saturday Virtual Happy Hour with participating restaurants

The Patchogue Chamber also includes a non-profit Greater Patchogue Foundation. This Foundation includes the Greater Patchogue COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster) that is leading community relief efforts. Already they have connected face mask and medical suppliers to local medical workers and providing meals for the community and volunteer emergency workers.

David Kennedy, Director of the Patchogue Chamber of Commerce said “Patchogue remains resilient and strong as we move trough this unprecedented time. Many of our businesses have found unique ways to provide needed food, items and services while following social distancing guidelines.”

Port Washington

Through the commitment of town, community groups and generous individuals, Port Washington’s Main Street has experienced a wonderful revitalization. Development that balances existing architecture with new zoning has generated novel and exciting storefronts, improved streetscapes and arts activities. Port Washington exemplifies public-private partnership at its best, while enhancing its community through shared ideas, expertise, time and financial support.

As the coronavirus outbreak grows, it continues to have an economic impact on downtown Main Streets, including Port Washington. “Merchants have been dealt a significant blow and need everyone’s help in making it through,” says Port Washington North Mayor Bob Weitzner. He has some advice for the community, “Shop local to the greatest extent possible. If possible, where inventory is not available in the local store, make an attempt to order through the local store and have them bring the item in through their larger network versus going to a ‘big box’ store.” Purchases you will make in the future, by now buying gift certificates, provides the merchants cash immediately to offset their large decline in immediate revenue.”

“The mood in the community is pretty resilient,” explains Mindy Germain, Executive Director of Residents Forward. “We are being proactive. The restaurants are finding creative ways to break through.” She recognizes that some “small businesses don’t know how to transition to an online presence, so the Chamber and BID are looking into creating tutorials/webinars to help.”

“While we have emphatically urged our residents to practice social distancing and to stay home whenever possible, we are encouraging everyone to support their local restaurants by ordering pickup or delivery,” said North Hempstead Supervisor Judi Bosworth. “We have some extraordinary local businesses in our downtowns, and as always, the town recognizes the importance of encouraging our residents to shop local, especially during these trying times.”

Bay Shore

Day 18 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to Main Street in Bay Shore.

Downtown Bay Shore once epitomized the many struggling Main Streets across Long Island. Rich with tradition, the town has spent years redeveloping their downtown with retail, restaurants, and transit oriented affordable housing, and public uses such as a waterfront park. Through the steady efforts of residents, business owners, school officials and civic groups, Bay Shore has generated transformational momentum, which has truly created a sense of place.

This decade long effort occurred due to the work of former Islip Planning Director Gene Murphy, multiple Town Supervisors and elected officials, the Bay Shore Chamber of Commerce, Bay Shore Summit Council, developers like Greenview Properties, the Boulton Center, the YMCA and many others.

Speaking about the COVID-19 outbreak, Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter reminds residents, “This is an unprecedented time for us all, in the Town of Islip, in our Country and all over the world, everything is changing, sometimes by the minute.”

Regarding the economic crisis that is interwoven with the health crisis, the Town has suspended parking meters along Main Street in downtown Bay Shore in an effort to facilitate restaurant take-out orders. “We are suspending parking meters in Bay Shore until further notice. I, along with the members of the Town Board, wanted to do our part to encourage residents to continue patronizing their local restaurants. Anything we can do to help our local businesses to facilitate taking advantage of To-Go orders, we need to do. It’s important that during these unsettling times, we do what we can to help one another,” said Supervisor Carpenter.

The following are some of restaurants offering takeout, curbside pickup, and delivery.

Riverhead

Day 17 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes us to downtown Riverhead – the gateway to the East End.

As the Riverhead Business Improvement District aptly summarizes, Historic Downtown Riverhead is a place where diverse communities find common ground, where mom-and-pops and new developments are next door neighbors, where art and culture shape the landscape.

The Town of Riverhead has been doing careful planning to redevelop its downtown, one project at a time, and the results have paid off. The persistent work of hardworking community folks, including local businesses, artists, architects, planners, property owners, walkability advocates, and municipal officials, in lifting up its business district, has grown restaurants, retail and arts activities.

In addressing the issues surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, Riverhead Town Supervisor Yvette Aguiar states, “The Town of Riverhead is working to ensure the health, security, and welfare of our residents while we navigate the unprecedented challenge posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Our focus is to continue implementing a continuity of operations plan.” On the economic side, Supervisor Aguiar states, “From the shops in Wading River, to in and around our Downtown, to our Eastern most hamlets and everywhere in between, our small businesses are a critical component of our Town. And although the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis is yet to be fully measured, we know it is already having a huge, negative impact on our small business community. To the brave business owners who work tirelessly contributing to the foundation of Riverhead, we are with you and working daily with Federal, State and Local officials to ensure financial assistance programs are readily available.”

The Riverhead BID advises, as Riverhead downtown restaurants adjust to the COVID-19 regulations, with a few halting services, some have transitioned to delivery and takeout only.  All have taken a major financial hit during this crisis. Fortunately, there are ways community can offer support while practicing social distance. Buying local supports more than you think. Every small effort helps to build bigger things.

Village of Huntington

Day 16 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes us to downtown Huntington.

Huntington village is typically a bustling seven-days-a-week downtown with numerous restaurants, local shopping, the Paramount music venue, art galleries, and the beloved Book Revue. Folks come from all over to gather on any given night and the diversity of age, race, and culture is evident in the people and the food offerings. The Huntington Chamber has described the village as “Where the city meets the suburbs”.

The village is also blessed with many preserved historic buildings and a well managed Town with daily services provided by the Town of Huntington, a Huntington BID, and an active Chamber along with an Arts Council, Historic Society, churches and many other associations that are part of the community fabric.

Today Huntington village, like other downtowns, is a shell of itself due to the shutdown. Having said that, many of the groups are actively promoting takeout and delivery options and raising resources for community members in need.

Amityville

Day 15 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to downtown Amityville.

The Village of Amityville has been a center of business and transportation on Long Island for years.  Most recently it has successfully worked to embrace and balance downtown development, while retaining the charm and historical character of the Village. In 2019, the Village was awarded Vision LI’s 2019 “Strengthening Communities” Smart Growth Award for its GreenTek Living project, now known as the Village by the Bay. This project will transform previously zoned industrial property into 115 rental units in a Transit Oriented District that will help fuel development and spark downtown revitalization. Like all communities right now, the Village is hurting.

“Our downtown is not in good shape now with some stores still doing takeout, others closed. People are wondering what kind of assistance they’re going to get. Biggest need is some kind of grants or loans that are less than the posted 3.5% interest rate. They need very low interest loans or grants to keep going,” explains Village Mayor Dennis Siry.

Jeffrey Erath, President of the Amityville Chamber of Commerce, recognizes, “At this time, there is no way to estimate the economic loss to our residents and merchants, but we have a good idea where it is headed.” He punctuates, the community support shown in the past is what makes the Village an outstanding place to live. The Chamber invites the community to help support the current essential businesses (those open for curbside pick-up or delivery), as well as visiting local merchant’s websites to shop online.

Village of Hempstead

This past Sunday, March 29th was day 14 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown.  We featured the Village of Hempstead then, which is an incredibly diverse community that has been planning revitalization projects over the last several years.  Their downtown has incredible transportation access with a bus hub, a train station, and a strong street grid for walking and biking.

They have a network of community, religious and business organizations that work along with their Village government to keep their downtown managed.  Their 400,000 square feet of independent retail features over 50 restaurants that are still open for takeout or delivery.

Here is a list of restaurants that are trying to make it work during this tough economic period.  (Special thanks to Clariona Griffith from the Hempstead Chamber for getting this “open” listing over to us.)

Huntington Station

Day 13 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to Huntington Station.  Rich in diversity, strong community participation and easy access to an active train station are all assets to efforts looking to bring back this historic downtown.

There has been a lot of investment into Huntington Station in recent years, especially north and south of the train station, with the goal of creating a walkable downtown area.  Residents, business, and government have been working collaboratively for over many years to bring mixed-use development to Huntington Station.  From the Northridge project on New York Avenue, to the ground breaking on Columbus Terrace, accomplishments have finally been mounting.

In Supervisor Chad Lupinacci’s January 2020 release on the state of the Town of Huntington, he looked ahead by stating that “We will continue to revitalize Huntington Station, including progress on building a sewer infrastructure south of the train station to promote economic development, and we are looking at all levels of government to help source funding, including County, State, and Federal (EPA) branches. We expect to move forward on the Town’s second spray park at Manor Field Park and break ground on the James D. Conte Community Center to offer services for young people, senior citizens and veterans.”

The economic calamity that faces all of Long Island’s downtowns as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak is hurting the small business that those revitalization efforts were helping.

“Things are not good now,” stated longtime resident Jim McGoldrick as he spoke about Huntington Station on a conference call organized by LI Main Street Alliance.  Jim expressed great concern over pending revitalization projects and the state of local businesses.  “Business is slacking off, the ones that own their property are a bit more at ease, but shops that rent are having a big problem.  Many are having a problem staying afloat.  Local businesses need seminars on the programs out there that can help them.  We don’t need vacancies – we need more town, state, and federal help.”

Restaurants are doing their best to stay creative and remain open.  Marie Michele Destil, owner of Gingerbites, exposes how big the hearts are in Huntington Station.  “We’re not making any money, but we are staying open as a service to our community. Nurses come in here after long shifts, and serving them is the least we can do to help them.”

Here is a sampling of local restaurants trying to make it work:

Baldwin

Day 12 of the Coronavirus Economic Shutdown has taken us to downtown Baldwin. Vision has had the opportunity to work with the folks in this community for many years as part of their ongoing revitalization effort.

Community, business, and government in the Town of Baldwin have worked tirelessly to realize transit oriented development and help the town attract new businesses.  They have also worked to create housing that appeals to young people, empty nesters, and community members who want easy access to New York City.  Baldwin, like so many other downtowns, has started to make real strides towards this goal of creating a real sense of place.

The Hempstead Town Board voted on January 21st to adopt the Baldwin zoning overlay district, which Vision was pleased to help draft. It was a community-driven process, with consensus and community collaboration thanks to all the levels of government working together.  This was an important step in clearing the way for the $10 million state grant the town received to redevelop downtown Baldwin, paving the way for beautification projects and spurring growth of mixed-use development along Grand Avenue.

The Coronavirus economic shutdown has unfortunately thrown off the course of this project.  Town government, the Chamber, and the Baldwin Civic Association are focused on not only the health and safety of residents, but also the economic health and safety of the downtown.

The Baldwin Chamber points out the one thing we can learn from this outbreak is that smaller, locally owned stores are vital to our community.  While big chain stores are running with empty shelves and big crowds, locally owned small businesses can reorder quickly and from many sources to keep the shelves stocked.

Like in every downtown, local businesses are doing their part, and support from residents is so important.  Towards that goal, Baldwin Civic Association’s Karen Montalbano said there is a grassroots effort to get the word out, especially through social media, of businesses that are open.

Valley Stream

Day 11 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes us to the Village of Valley Stream.  The Village has approved and built a number of transit-oriented developments in recent years and was poised for an uptick of downtown activity in 2020.

Last Tuesday was supposed to be a big day for local bars and restaurants as St. Patrick’s Day is usually one of the busier days of the year.  But with Governor Cuomo’s executive order in full effect it was a rather stark one for Valley Stream businesses beginning to get hit by the Coronavirus shutdown.

This mood was felt at numerous local establishments, including Buckley’s Restaurant and Bar, a 51-year-old establishment in downtown Valley Stream that had been reduced to a takeout service.  Even with a temporary change in the state’s liquor laws to allow off-site sale of alcohol the business is expecting a big dent in normal patronage.

“No one wants to close down, but it’s the right thing to do,” Buckley’s bartender Kenny Collins said. “You don’t want people to get sick, so you do what you have to do.”

Another local establishment, Mitchell’s Restaurant, has already had to send home workers as business has declined and is currently working out a plan to be able to switch full time to takeout and delivery service.  While owners and managers recognize the need for these sudden shifts, there is still much anxiety over how to do so and what the long term effects will be.

But Mr. Notarbartolo also noted that his business had already been seeing a sharp downtick in business as customers began avoiding crowded places in recent weeks.  It was already putting his establishment in a place where they needed to cut back on staffing hours.  Fortunately for him a number of his staff are high school or college students who were looking for a little bit of extra cash, but there are a number of workers who rely on this as their primary source of income, and those are the ones who businesses are prioritizing at the moment.

Kudos to Village of Valley Stream Mayor Ed Fare and his team for keeping the Village well managed during this crisis.

Great Neck Plaza

Day 10 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brings us to the Great Neck Plaza.

Amid Coronavirus concerns, the Village of Great Neck Plaza is putting residents first.  As per Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order on March 16th, village elections have been delayed to primary Election Day, April 28, 2020.  As such, Mayor Jean Celender has delayed her retirement through early May.

According to the Mayor, “Our Preparedness Team is meeting daily to ensure we consider the most up-to-date information from public health agencies and government authorities, share key data and best practices with our staff, and ensure we are taking appropriate steps to protect the health and safety of all of our people while continuing to meet the needs of our residents and businesses on Main Street.”

The Village of Great Neck Plaza, led by Mayor Celender, has flourished throughout the years.  From advocating for safe streets and traffic calming initiatives, demanding affordable housing units in a high wealth area, managing and promoting festivals, events, arts, culture, music, and securing $5million for a range of capital projects and services, the Village of Great Neck Plaza is thriving.

Most recently, the Village has been working with Vision to change codes to help promote/preserve Main Street retail and get more affordable units in its downtown.  The effects of the pandemic now threaten to interrupt this remarkable trajectory.

“We are a ghost town,” described Mayor Celender. “Our eateries are experiencing real hardships. The restaurants are doing yeoman’s work. They need all the advertising help we can give them, especially through the use of social media.”

The Great Neck Plaza Business Improvement District is encouraging residents, during this time of crisis as restaurants and patrons do their part in flattening the curve, to visit favorite local eateries and utilize takeout, curbside or delivery options.

Here is a sampling of local restaurants making it work:

Bareburger is open for takeout, curbside & delivery
66 Middle Neck Road, Great Neck, (516) 441-5711

Lynbrook

Day 9 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown takes us to downtown Lynbrook where the community has banded together on a number of levels.

From monitoring experts’ opinions and suggestions, providing COVID-19 education, closing the library and village sponsored recreational events, to partnering with Key Food Supermarket to deliver food to seniors that rely on buses to get to the market, the Village of Lynbrook is working overtime to keep its residents safe.  Along with tackling this health crisis, the Village is grappling with the economic crisis all downtowns are now facing.

With great schools and friendly residents, many of whom have grown up there, Lynbrook has been able to maintain its local flavor. With its embrace of several recent projects, the Village has begun lowering its oar in the water on transit-oriented development, utilizing its unique rail opportunities.  Now, all hands are on deck to try to minimize the economic damage that is ensuing from the fallout of the Coronavirus.

Joe Carusone, owner of Vincent’s, embodies the spirit of Lynbrook, “We are hanging in there.  Whatever our customers are comfortable with, we’ll do.  We’ll deliver to the door, knock, or not, deliver curbside, or welcome you into the restaurant for takeout.  Everyone is different and we understand.”

The Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce has a message for residents, “Between the mandate that closed restaurants, and the supermarkets out of, well, everything, you can support our member restaurants who are open for takeout and delivery. You’ll be doing yourself and them a big favor.”

Kudos to Mayor Alan Beach and his team for managing the Village through this crisis.

Babylon Village

Day 8 of the Coronavirus economic shutdown brought us to Suffolk County and the Village of Babylon.

The Village of Babylon has been working on redevelopment projects, including a downtown theatre, and maintains a robust business district.  The Village understands that money spent on brick and mortar stores in its downtown stays in the community, helps pay local taxes, and keeps jobs and resources in the neighborhood.  The advent of the Coronavirus and the steps that towns, villages, counties, and states are necessarily taking to protect the health of residents, may ultimately injure downtown businesses.

Kelly Peckholdt, President of the Babylon Village Chamber of Commerce, sees the importance of focusing on the economic impact of this crisis.  “Our businesses here in the village are already significantly impacted,” said Ms. Peckholdt.  “At this point, pretty much all of the businesses are closing or have modified their hours significantly.  A few retailers are still open but are only doing virtual shopping or private shopping appointments.  We’re essentially waiting on and expecting the announcement to come that all non-essential businesses must close.  There are a lot of business owners and employees of those businesses who are already concerned for their livelihoods considering the government has not provided a timeline on these shut downs.  On the other hand, we are already seeing a wave of support from the community.

“As a Chamber, we have been working really hard this week at constantly sharing businesses who are offering takeout, virtual shopping, etc, on our social media pages, and have also been trying to share as much information from local governments as possible for business owners to reference.  We also have some larger marketing projects in the works, too, as we are trying to help our fellow business owners as much as possible.  Another upside, though, is that this situation has forced many businesses to become really creative in what and how they are marketing – only time will tell if these strategies will also work in a post-coronavirus world, but I think these innovative strategies will be what will hopefully allow these businesses to survive for the time being.”

Richard Kahn, Bar Manager at The Brixton, sums it up.  “We are all in this together.  We are trying to restore some sense of normalcy, which is so important right now.  We need to take care of each other.”

Here is a sampling of local Babylon restaurants making it work:

Del Fuego is open for takeout, curbside service and delivery through Uber Eats & Doordash

Kings Park

We recently had a chance to talk to our friends, small businesses, and government leaders in Kings Park to see how they are coping amidst the shutdown.

Kings Park has been making slow but steady strides towards revitalizing its aging downtown. With business, community and government working together, the prospects for positive growth has become a reality. The current restrictions associated with combatting the Coronavirus threatens to derail this progress. Like every local Main Street, the businesses, especially restaurants, are struggling to survive.

Anthony Tanzi, President of the Kings Park Chamber of Commerce, predicts “Main Street and small business will weather this storm! However, it’s going to take a commitment from our local communities to help them though if we want them there when it’s over.”

Kevin Denis, owner of Professor’s Café agrees, “We’ve been taking care of the community for 33 years, we hope the community will be there for us.” Denis explains, “It’s hard to know what the right thing to do is, close for a few weeks or stay open. We are doing everything we can to hang in there and survive.”

Michael Grimaudo, owner of Gino’s Kings Park concurs, businesses are hurting, but we are working to stay positive.

The Town of Smithtown government understands the immediate challenges of balancing personal health and economic health of communities. “This pandemic has hit our Main Street businesses in a way that has many of them wondering how they will survive. Many are coming up with ways of conducting business without compromising the public. Bakeries are making DIY cookie kits to take home, restaurants are amping up takeout, realtors are filming available homes… they’re each finding their own recipe to make lemonade. And while the public must remain vigilant in social distancing, we can all find a way to safely support our local shops, be it sharing their social media posts or making a donation to those forced to close… the way through this is together,” Supervisor Ed Wehrheim.

Linda Henninger, President if the Kings Park Civic encourages residents to support the local businesses downtown as well.

We had the chance to also see the Park Bake Shop set up an order window. Owner Lucy Shtanko offered delicious kronuts to go.

Port to Port Liquors

The Barn

Rob Breudenbach from the Northport Harbor Delicatessen, both of which have been mainstays in town for decades, has great egg sandwiches, soups and lunches.

Martoni’s, a much newer operation, has great coffee, homemade soups, and other entrees and products.  They also have pasta for sale for folks that are stocking up and find their local supermarket bare.

The Wine Bar is open for takeout and serving up their eclectic menu, which includes other open restaurants in town.  It is literally a one stop takeout shop along with wine, of course.

Lastly, Maroni’s is open with lots of their award winning meatballs hot and ready to go.  Maria Maroni is working long days and nights to keep that operation ready to go for local patrons.

Folks can grab their takeout and eat at the waterfront while still remaining good distance apart, or just safely walk around town while avoiding close contact with others.

Many of the retail shops voluntarily closed even before the forced shutdown the came last night and the one last Monday.  Northport is a village that relies heavily on tourism revenue, so summers are when most restaurants, bars, and retailers benefit and January & February are the slowest months of the month.  The shutdown occurring in March, when most of these businesses are beginning to ramp back up, may actually be worse than the winter and is debilitating for many.  Sadly, our friend Gene from Oscar’s barbershop was forced to close last week in anticipation of shutdown orders. We hope to see him back.

We hope folks can find a responsible way to patronize these small businesses or others in your own downtown.  It’s the only way these folks will make it through what will be a rough economic time for all of us.

Farmingdale

No single downtown has brought housing, jobs, economic activity and great adaptive reuse with transit-oriented development as the Village of Farmingdale, but as this pandemic begins to cause significant economic distress, very few places or industries will emerge unscathed, and none are more vulnerable than our local Main Street businesses.

Farmingdale Village Mayor Ralph Ekstrand and the Village Board of Trustees are not only working to keep their community safe; they are visiting merchants throughout the Village to address the current economic crisis. Mayor Ekstrand tells us, “We have been doing take out every night from a different place. We put out on the Village website, and to all residents on our constant contact, a list of restaurant’s names and phone numbers which are doing delivery and take out. We have given all merchants the SBA information to file for money.  We are trying our best to keep Farmingdale a Village to be proud of.”

The Farmingdale Chamber of Commerce asks that Farmingdale come together to support the businesses that support the community. “Every day, small business owners and organizations are being asked to make public safety judgement calls, putting themselves, their staff, and their future at risk,” President Joseph Garcia states. “Our restaurants, brewery, and many others have been forced to change business models overnight to comply with State Rules and Guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. The vast majority of our members are still operating. Food and beverage establishments have made provisions for takeout, curbside pick-up, free delivery, discounts, and Alcohol to-go and even delivered. Please continue to support our businesses here in Farmingdale. Order in, have some beer or wine. Continue doing business over the phone. Consider purchasing gift cards for future use, as well. We want to make sure Farmingdale continues to be a strong and vibrant business community.”

(It is worth noting that the line for one of the local gun shops was out the door at 8:30 at night.)

We had takeout from Taglio Roman Style Pizza, which tasted great.  We also stopped in to see Avelino and Elizabeth from Heart of Portugal.  Their Grilled Octupus with Vegetables special was particularly delicious!

Unfortunately, businesses reported of being 90% down on average, even with takeout orders still being available.  Most have had to lay off 50 to 80% of their staff, and are operating under skeleton crews.  But it is still worth noting that takeout food delivery is still allowed under the forced measures to be enacted on Sunday.

Vision has now spoken to over 160 independent small businesses who have been decimated by the forced shutdowns of most Main Street activities.

Hicksville

Night 2 of the Coronavirus economic crisis brought Vision Long Island out to downtown Hicksville.  Armed with hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes, we were happy to see a number of restaurants providing take out to customers.

Some of the restaurants still open include:

Dosa House

Fuel Your Body Café

Halal Kabab

Jalea Peruvian Cuisine

Kababjees

Kebab House

Lemon Leaf Grill

Masala Wok

Mulberry Street

Punto Rojo Colombian

Peppercorns

Rajbhog

Shaheen

Texas Chicken & Ribs

Trullo Do

Vision also stopped in to see Tony at Food Universe, who is doing brisk business.

All of the restaurants we talked to were down 20-50% of normal business before Monday.  The shift to takeout only has caused those numbers to drop even further.  The main concern most folks had was the coming weekend, which is where 50% or more of their business is secured.  Takeout only on a Saturday night is far different than a full dining room.

Westbury

As concern about the Coronavirus rises, Village of Westbury Mayor Peter Cavallaro, the Board, and village agencies are taking steps to assure residents that everything possible is being done to promote their health and safety.

The Village, like other downtowns on Long Island, has been making great strides through the spirit of bipartisanship and cooperation, with hyperlocal focus and local groups coming together to support its downtown transformation. The Coronavirus pandemic threatens to change this protectory.

When it comes to local businesses, Mayor Cavallaro observes the longer the pandemic lasts, the more these businesses will feel tremendous pressure. “We need to support small business, as they do not have a long safety cord.” The Village is asking residents to shop locally where they can. “Without this support during these difficult times,” the Mayor says, “these businesses may not be here when its over.”

The Mayor notes that when it comes to health and safety, there are lots of resources from the County and State. Conversely, downtowns have less tools in their toolbox. The encouraging news, the Mayor notes, is the Village is in good shape. “Zoning is in place and we have a healthy downtown.”

Local restaurants are finding ways to safely serve their community. Owner of Toskana Pizzeria Restaurant, Jennifer Bautaj, notes the importance of shopping local all the time, and especially now, during a time of crisis. “People need to shop local, invest in small business, the Mom and Pop stores, in their communities. If not, we all lose.”

The Westbury Business Improvement District Board will continue to push out the revitalization plans with significant influence on keeping the current businesses open for the residence during these challenging times. Many of the food business are providing curb side pickup or delivery service to respect residents concerns. As the CDC recommends changes we will push them out the business. In these trying times lets all stay safe and keep the ill in out prayers, Vanessa Esposito, Executive Director

Vision staff stopped in to Guiradelco for delicious kebabs to go and a tasty Calzone from the Jennifer, Mike and Bill at Toskana.
