How about all the long standing business's going OUT of business. Entennmans, 300 jobs, been aroundRead More for 100 years but now Cuomo is pushing how great NY is to do business in? BULL! We are taxed to death, giving a new business 10 years tax free and all those housing developments like Wyandanch Rising a FORTY YEAR tax abatement? That burden falls on the existing business's/homeowners that are now being pushed out. Yankee Peddler is one, been here forever and now some used furniture store took it's place. What are these things they are so proud of? Egifter? Launch Pads? More reasons to go online and not shop local? Nice way to really help the private small owned business's on Long Island file bankruptcy quicker so they can move to another state! There's your brain drain. YOU CAUSED IT!

I just looked up egifter. It's a website. How many people locally does that employ? ZERO. It is anRead More impersonal way to send a gift card to someone you don't care enough to get off your butt and go to the store and pick them out something nice. Smoke N Mirrors. They aren't doing crap for you but another "luncheon" for themselves, congratulating themselves for being masters of the pretend Universe they live in. It's getting old fellas. Real old.

Launchpad, another stupid idea. A business that makes "business's". That idea soundRead More familiar? Because it is. The Business Incubator was the first non successful launch of such an idea and then Mark Mayoka started the business Launch Up idea in a Town Hall Room on the 3rd floor that Susan Berland previously used to have Town employees make phone calls (on town time) to get her reelected. They gave that room to Mr Mayoka to shut him up when he stumbled across the makeshift re-election center. All these things they are talking about are basically widgets. I wonder how much Federal Money they got in grants to do absolutely nothing but get jobs for people who campaign for their re-election bids

Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

They could at least repaint the arrows in the parking lot! Was hoping the new market would take careRead More of that. Most dangerous parking lot in Commack!

Similar to Uncle Giuseppe's, its a bit too pricey for regular shopping, at least for a family and aRead More budget.
P. J. Miller April 5, 2014 at 07:55 am
Agree with IMHO. Trying to be like Uncle Giuseppe's but never will! Very expensive can do muchRead More better elsewhere and very limited on alot of items. Shop the circular, but otherwise you can do better elsewhere. Fish dept SMELLED of bad fish so we walked away! It will do well because there is nothing nearby, but a regular supermarket would have been a better choice price wise!

I liked Commack Kosher and the owner. Unfortunately, there is a lot more competition. Kosher foodRead More is available as Shop Rite locally, and in Plainview, elsewhere, Queens and beyond. I go to Queens at least once a month, as they have a much wider selection.
heidig3 March 27, 2014 at 10:19 am
I now am traveling to Woodbury kosher in Hicksville :( they do however deliver to where I am so IRead More went there and I now will have them deliver so I don't have to go there!! am I happy? NO, but I have to do what I have to do.
CommackMom April 6, 2014 at 07:11 am
Part of the reason they closed was due to an increase in the rent. Although they will be missed IRead More think the main focus here should be Why is the landlord raising the rents substantially when 1) Commack Butcher has been there for a very long time and 2) there are SO MANY empty stores once again.

I disagree. I really loved it there. It wasn't a club, it was a lounge, and summer happy hour atRead More Four is something I am going to really miss. The outdoor deck was one of the only places on Rt110 to eat and mingle outside. I hope their next endeavour is just as good!
Lance Mcnally March 14, 2014 at 10:15 am
Aweful. I'm surprised they lasted that long. The service was pompous and the food even worse.Read More Overpriced and over hyped.
TheNanny March 14, 2014 at 12:18 pm
The food was great the one time I are there. But otherwise, nothing positive to say about it. OverRead More priced drinks and food. Too swanky, for a corner of 110 and the business quadrangle, pompous and obnoxious crowd. Intimidating all around. Let's keep the "manhattan-like" lounges Manhattan. Won't be missed!

JACK, The Church IS NOT these human FRAUDS and PHONIES, who hold daily and weekly, POLITICALRead More INDOCTRINATION SESSIONS, AND kowtow to whatever alien political ideology, that is popular, and that they embrace. It is my understanding that ALL religions suffer, to some varying degree, from these FRAUDS. So you have to HOLD YOUR NOSE AND IGNORE THEM, and have enough Faith, that THESE TYPES, are the social flotsam, that is 'PASSING THROUGH', any Society's 'digestive system'...and are anomalies, NOT THE RULE...AND that any 'influence' they have, is temporary...LIKE A MIGRAINE...or a stomach virus !
Robert Demarco March 19, 2014 at 08:07 am
Jack, I am not anti-Catholic. Humans have done harm to the Church(priests, bishops, etc). I donateRead More regularly and directly to the Parish outreach, which helps people all over the Island. I was not referring to regular maintenance in my previous post. They raised money during the recession to install ceramic, marble, and oak in a church that was 20 years old. I feel that it was an unnecessary burden for the parishioners whose generosity is always exploited. And Jack, the main reason for lower contributions is lower attendance at Mass, and there are many reasons for that.
Jack March 19, 2014 at 07:17 pm
Brookhaven Why don't you criticize all religions like you do the Church. Jump on that bandwagon.Read More Bottom line the Church has so much good for the world and I'm not going to let some earthly men detract me from enjoying being a Catholic and attending Mass. I feel very lucky to be Catholic. The combination of all other religions combined do not come near what the Cathokic Charities has done for those in need. If they make a few mistakes, so be it. Why don't you find yourself another religion if you care about God at all. I think you will be disappointed. Robert, I appreciate your post an agree with you. I think things are cyclical and we have a society an culture now that belittle religion and especially the Church. I enjoy the extra room in the pews and look forward to seeing better days with more attendees. I also look forward to a more conservative government that will support faith based operations and the departure of this leaderless government we have now.
