Talk Back: Should A Pharmacy Replace La Grange?

Do you support a proposal to build a pharmacy on the site of the vacant La Grange Inn?

It's clear that West Islip residents are impassioned over the future of the now-defunct La Grange Inn.

As West Islip Patch has reported on the details of the proposal to build a drive-through pharmacy and retail space on the property, we've received a steady flow of comments and emails about the site.

Many in the West Islip community are opposed to another pharmacy moving into the hamlet. Others want the historic inn to be restored and preserved.

OPINION: Community Needs To Give CVS Proposal A Fair Hearing

Others believe the vacant space has turned into an eyesore after years of neglect, and support the change.

We want to know what you think. Would you welcome a pharmacy there, or would West Islip benefit from another business at that location? Should the La Grange Inn be preserved without any commerical development? Weigh in on the issue in the comments below.

I agree, we don't need another pharmacy, it should be a restaurant or maybe a bed and breakfast !

I agree! It should be preserved! It is a historic site! Let's keep some history here for our children. You can always find anything else

It's an historic site...a CVS..c'mon.. There must be some people that still have imaginations and can make it back into something beautiful!! The traffic on the corner of Montauk and Higbie is dangerous enough as it is...especially when school children are crossing the street...the crossing guards take their lives in their hands. Let's try to keep West Islip beauiful and not make it into a Jericho Turnpike!
