Smithtown has its share of problems. Officials hope to balance plans to make Main Street a downtown destination while addressing its dangers as a major roadway, vacancies dot the landscape from St. James to the edge of Kings Park, taxes are high and schools with good academics face the scary problem of heroin in their halls.
It's times like these that people get to thinking about the home they love so much, coming up with their own ideas, be them wild stretches of the imagination or practical fixes that are altogether doable, to keep the Smithtown, St. James and Nesconset areas great into the forseeable future.
