The Cherrywood Shopping Center sign. Not so much and eyesore, but it's ugly and outdated.

The building by the railroad parking lot next to 7-11 on Park and Beech in Wantagh.

The Building by the railroad was taken down and a new business will be opening up there! The new occupants have really spruced it up nice! NOT an Eyesore anymore!

Ozers car repair shop on merrick and pine.....near Capri bakery. They have a vehicle junk yard in the rear with about 20 cars in there. The fence is falling down. The weeds on this property are an eyesore.

Scott RE; JB HOTEL--Where are the roaches going to live???
Chris August 22, 2012 at 02:02 PM
The biggest eyesore has got to be Town of Hempstead employees driving around my neighborhood doing nothing! The roads have pot holes. There is garbage everywhere. The weeds are knee high. Kate Murray gets us a windmill in Lido!

Seaford Avenue School without a doubt.
Richard Zitrick August 25, 2012 at 03:31 PM
Folks complaining about the Seaford Avenue School need to know that a developer has a plan to convert the property into a slew of condominiums and is only waiting for the proper approvals before going ahead. This will mean a loss of the athletic fields and increased traffic for others in the area. "Sprucing up the neighborhood" comes with a price.
