It housed a diner in the recent past, but now its future is uncertain. The unit sits vacant, its windows bare of any Realtor signs, in the heart of Long Beach’s business district on West Park Avenue, across the street from the Long Island Rail Road station and City Hall. It is sandwiched by a nail salon and the Long Beach Craft & Variety Store, always a hot spot for the beach crowds coming off trains in search of sunscreen or a chair to plant in the sand. There are plenty of eateries nearby, from a pita place to fine restaurants, not to mention a slew of cell phone stores and a frozen yogurt shop.
Given the stores and restaurants that already exist there, what kind of business do you think would make a perfect fit for this vacancy that is prime commercial real estate in the city? Weigh in with your suggestions in the comments below.
