Walk down Jericho Turnpike or Hillside Avenue these days and you will notice many desolate store fronts adorned with “For Rent” or “Available” signs, an indication of the hard times the area — and country — are facing.
Over the next few months, New Hyde Park Patch will spotlight these vacant properties to foster discussion in the community on what can, should and could be done to rehab these abandoned places.
Today we are featuring the former Chevrolet Dealership, located at 383 Jericho Tpke.
The car dealership has been vacant for a couple of years now with little interest in the lot. For a $30,000 per month price tag, renters get 25,040 sp. ft, single-story plus 16,000 sq. ft across the street on the North side of Jericho Turnpike.
Michael O’Brien of M.C. O’Brien Inc. said all Chevrolet Dealerships are closing down in the area, and he’s not sure what type of venue would be ideal for this spot.
