Letter to the Lynbrook/East Rockaway Editor (Aug. 23-29)


Lynbrook is open for business

To the Editor,

The Chamber of Commerce, in cooperation with village officials, has embarked on a tremendous undertaking — the renovation and restoration of our beautiful village. With the opening of Regal Cinemas 13, we see an upward swing of people bustling about the downtown area, either shopping or dining out with their families. This facility has modernized Lynbrook and has brought us in to the 21st century.

Just walk along Atlantic Avenue and you will hear the sweet sound of music being piped into the area from midday until the early evening. The village has also applied for a downtown revitalization initiative grant, which would provide Lynbrook the opportunity to enhance and grow its economic development. Many properties are being studied for renovation and/or refurbishing, which will modernize the business community.

One very big plus for our village is that we are a transportation hub, with the Long Island Rail Road close by and Manhattan just 30 minutes away by rail.

Greis Veterans Memorial Park is also being studied to make it more family-friendly and will give our young people more access to sports and fun activities.

Yes, Lynbrook is open for business, and we encourage everyone to live, work and play in this fabulous community. To coin an old expression, “Lynbrook is the Village that leads the way!”

Carol A. Burak

President, Lynbrook Chamber of Commerce
