@scamp. LOL. I guess we still haven't found heaven on Earth on Long Island. Dogs V. concert-goers. Pick your "poison."

I've lived here just about all my life. I'm thrilled to have the Paramount here. I hope the town moves forward to build more parking--we've needed it even before the Paramount. It will help all the other businesses in town. And hopefully the folks at the Paramount will be given some restrictions to be good neighbors to the other businesses. Agree, Scott. I hope the town board is reading this and doing something. Certainly can't make everyone happy, but there is great room for improvement right now.

I have had zero issues with parking in town (though obviously I'm not finding a spot out front but who cares???), and I'm there quite often - getting dinner, take out, drinks with friends, shopping, etc., - all the restaurants and bars I frequent are busy whenever I'm there... There are some issues with the Paramount (there are also issues with other bars and restaurants too and there always have been) but a lot of these comments seem blown out of proportion to me.

On my email, Karma2012 was ranting ridiculous words. I don't see it reprinted here, good. Lets keep this dialogue open, honest and sensible.

Andrea, I agree. The apocalyptic commentary about Huntington Village isn't getting us anywhere. Compared with a number of other small Long Island villages where vacant retail space is very common, we seem to be doing pretty well. Nonetheless, I do think the town needs to look hard at the parking issue.
