A New Park? Well...
At the four corners in the center of Glen Head, there used to be three gasoline stations and a tire store. The tire store closed and was torn down, and has since been replaced by some stores and a couple of nice places to eat. Then one of the gas stations closed, and was left abandoned for nearly ten years. There was talk of building a Seven Eleven on the spot, but neighbors protesting shut that down. Then there was talk of brightening the center of Glen Head, by building a park on the spot. That would really have changed the feeling for the village and made it much nicer. I thought that was the final decision. I drove by the fenced in and obscured area a few weeks ago, and saw that they were doing some digging. I wondered why they would have to dig down to build a park, level with the street. The answer showed up the other day. The hole was deeper and it is clear that a building foundation was being installed. Turns out it will be another bank building! Such a shame to miss out on having a beautiful green park.
