New Shopping Center to Open in East Meadow

Editor's Note: This article was written and submitted by Danielle DeSouza.

After being plagued with vacancies for months, a new shopping center is set to open on Hempstead Turnpike this year.

Meadow Crossing is well on its way to bringing new businesses to East Meadow.

The property, located at 2464 Hempstead Turnpike, was where an Exxon Gas Station once stood.

The designer, Peter Elkin of Elkin Architecture PC, said that the construction on the property started around last Christmas and that the center should be open to the public in a few months.

"The property is 4,200 sq. ft. and can possibly hold up to four stores," he said.

Augsuto Castillo, manger of Burger King, which is located next to the property, said that the shopping center will benefit Hempstead Turnpike.

"It will surely bring more traffic and traffic is always good," he said. "There are a lot of empty stores on the turnpike that we need to fill up."

When asked what he would like to see open in Meadow Crossing:

"I would like to see something like medical offices, just no food stores," he laughed.

Don't you just love the politically correct labels? Homeless people are nothing more than lazy bums who choose to hang out in the park rather than work and most of them collect some kind of welfare and steal whatever they can get their hand on.

Ok, public service announcement coming: Nothing personal, but when people have a lot of spelling and grammar errors, it makes them sound foolish no matter what they are trying to say. If you want to say something, take the extra 2 seconds and spell check - that way, people might actually listen. As opposed to our focusing on how Yea = yeah, pblic = public, hbope = hope, its = it's ...
