The recent decision by Lowe’s to not complete building a new location in Huntington Station had something to do with the economy not getting better as soon as had been hoped, that is a given. What is not a given is why a billion dollar corporation chooses to continue building in one location and not […]

We forwarded this letter to the Patch in response to their article about the Town Hall tapes.  We are hopeful, but doubtful that they will print it.  Our research shows that the Patch often reports in this fashion.  Kelly Campbell was the exception but to the best of our knowledge no longer reports for the […]

(Letter from AJ Carter to the Huntingtonian)
To the Huntingtonian:
I must ask that you correct willful inaccuracies in your article about the message left on the telephone of your editor, Nicholas Wieland.
In particular, at 1:07 into the recording, you will hear me say, clearly and unambiguously, “Frank wants me to respond to these FOILs right away.” This […]

The Huntingtonian was trying to obtain information regarding the rental registration law as required by Town Code (see below).  We believe the law was passed with legislation in 2002 and recently amended to include Section 8 dwellings which were previously excluded.  We were under the impression that there was supposed to be some sort of […]

Are You Sure We Need More Affordable Housing In Huntington Station?

Comments Off on Are You Sure We Need More Affordable Housing In Huntington Station?

There are currently 66 houses for sale in Huntington Station that are under $250,000. Listed below are the asking prices, so they could probably be purchased for even less.
