14 Things People Want to See Happen in Glen Cove

Many residents want to see more retail stores come to Glen Cove in 2014.

On Thursday, we asked Glen Cove Patch Facebook readers to tell us what they want to see happen in Glen Cove in 2014.

Here's what they said: 
  • Open stores, the movie theatre we need to bring Glen Cove to life
  • I would love not to travel 30 minutes to buy a shirt or pair of pants..we definitely need some stores !!!
  • Less empty store fronts. More of a variety of businesses.
  • Retail stores so we don't have to fight the crowds at the mall. Shoes, clothes, especially for kids!
  • All the above and some kid friendly restaurants!
  • I would love for the movie theater to re-open!
  • Trader joes! Home goods! Waterfront DONE including a city marina for residents
  • Create a tax base that's fair for property owners instead of raping them with double digit increases for the last administration and have term limits on elected officials in office. GC politics stink there's too much favoritism.
  •  I want a Target! Please!
  • Remove the red light camera at by School St. Cottage Row and Forest Ave.
  • The ferry. Affordable pricing and a sane schedule that is competitive with the LIRR. The creation of jobs by and around the ferry, and sustainable green energy architecture (solar) that helps keep costs low.
  • More opened stores, Waterfront done, theater open, & FIOS-TV finally allowed to start up.
  • A dog park!
  • Let's start with something easy......Fix some of these Pot Holes all over Glen Cove & level off some of the speed bumps on Forest Ave. Horrible!!!!!

@gary B why must you ALWAYS bash the police dept and unions. every single posting. if you don't like the way things are run, why don't you run for a city council position next time.

Laura there is a great, fenced in, dog park right near Hempstead harbor yacht club by the public ramp. Near the old ferry terminal. Problem solved. Ah if all of glen coves problems were all that easy.

The photocircuits site has waterfront views. It would be a shame to put a Homedeport or other big box store there (also, it would drive Sorensons' out of business). Being a terminus should not, in and of itself, be a deal killer. Montauk is packed every summer, but they use their waterfront intelligently. Actually the Photocircuits site is big enough, and b/c of the waterviews attractive enough for your sports complex idea. It also somewhat compliments the stadium and the Boys and Girls Club as making that part of town a hub for kid's activities. Ther should be a better tie in between Prybil and the golf course, so that one could have a day at the beach and decent meal (though I applaud the concessionaire for expanding the menu last summer, I'm a fried clam lover). The same thing about Morgan Park. I remember the summer that the tall ships came and their was dining on the covered pier. The concession stand and the patio next to it could support outdoor dining of the kind you see at TOBAY at the two Singleton's offshoots. What lovely summer evening it would make to take the ferry out from the City, shuttle bus to Morgan's, eat at an outdoor patio restaurant and listen to a concert. Same thing with placing a sports complex at the Photocircuits site. When NYC was contemplating building Chelsea Piers, everyone said no one would come to that part of town, now it's over capacity and their are waiting lists for permits to the astro turf field next to it and the Hudson River Park trail is packed. We already have the waterfront esplanade (the Hudson River Park component) if you had public transport (ferry and shuttle) and the sports/entertainment complex, you would have a destination.

I was born and raised in GC and I do remember an ice skating ring, shoe stores and lots of other stores we had here. We had two movie theaters now we can't keep one open. I agree we need to clean up the beaches but you can't do anything there. I remember being able to throw a frisbee or football now it's against the rules. Mark666 hit the nail on the head with his comments.

I wonder if we could organize things at the beaches? Like beach volleyball tournaments to get the teenagers to use the beaches. City Hall organizes the Snapper Derby, why not other events at our parks and beaches?
