I agree...It's sad that Huntington has tons of places to shop & eat...same with Great Neck, Roslyn. Why not Syosset town ?

There needs to be uniformity of all storefronts for Syosset to be considered a beautiful town.... All should resemble something similar to the small strip starting with Mims restaurant... The lighting is nostalgic there as well... Its all a matter of money and zoning but how can a town with so much wealth continue to look so dumpy????

I agree. There needs to be uniform storefronts, new sidewalks, pretty lighting and most of all, stores one wants to shop in!

"TOBAY needs to take advantage of the improving economy and make a major push toward bettering local business." Are you kidding? What improving economy. LOL

It is a great idea to beautify Syosset.I think that every shop should have the same awning. Right now it looks like a run down town.Please include town north of tracks in beautification.
