There are many empty buildings along Commack Road, so many "for rent" signs it's hard to count. But not every vacant building is located just a few hundred feet from a major intersection.
The former Short Stop Printing in Commack lies just off the corner of Commack Road and Jericho Turnpike. Hundreds of cars daily drive right by this site, many drivers never noticing the "closed" sign in the front window.
Short Stop Printing's bold black and yellow signs are showing beginning to show wear and tear, the once bright yellow background fading to a dull and dirty beige. Many Commack drivers go past this building as the they pull into the Dairy Barn next door, bringing traffic right up to its door step.
The two-story, 1,700-square-foot building is available for sale or lease through Island Associates. The real estate company estimates there are nearly 6,000 residents with an average household income of $127,245 within a mile of this storefront. No sale price is listed for the building on Island Associates' website.
If someone were to purchase the building, the annual taxes on the print shop storefront would be approximately $11,526, accordign to Island Associates.
