Another Rotten Lumber Yard? [Empty in Smithtown]

Former Sider Lumber location crumbles in St. James, leaving a big space to fill in town. Got an idea to replace it?

The sounds of saws and splintering wood haven't been heard in years along Middle County Road, ever since left its longtime St. James hub for newer digs at 45 Southern Boulevard in Nesconset several years ago.

And the spot, which , isn't getting finer with age.

According to Jim Dunn, an agent with Atlantic Property Services, which is listing the property, said he's marketing the parcel as a bundle with an adjacent vacant house and empty former antique auto dealer.

He said he's confident he'll find a buyer.

But in wait, the property stands as another ghost in the area, chained off and crumbling along one of Smithtown's most trafficked arteries.

Because the property abuts a St. James residential area, we at Smithtown Patch wonder what the community would like to see move in to such a large parcel?

The town can make it a safe paid parking lot with lights - like in Port Jeff Village, remove the main street parking ( because it is part of the overall safety problem ) have a revenue generating parking lot across the street from town hall and this will help the businesses in the west part of main street parking lot, smithtown can use it !
