Do You Remember the Lindy Businesses That Have Come & Gone?

Turnover happens normally in a community, but what place do you miss the most in Lindenhurst?

Businesses have come and gone in Lindenhurst and North Lindenhurst through the years – and the slumping economy hasn't helped make things easier.

Recent exits include in North Lindy, and among the most sentimental to many is the old movie theater and Friendly's in the Village.

So, Lindy, what do you think?

Which eatery or store from the past do you miss the most?

Wow, I grew up in Lindenhurst, lived right behind the firehouse, neighbors to Otto, Ruth, Karen and Brian. Mr. Liebl was a kind gentleman and would sit me in his porch and talk to me like I as an adult( I was around 9 or 10 at the time) And Karen was my first crush. I moved away when I was 11 and never saw them again. I wonder how they are? Without a doubt my most memorable memories would be how I could hang out in the firehouse and on the 4th July, they would do the "Bughouse Parade". We would have squirt guns and we would shoot the firemen who would dress like hobos, man, what memories there were! Lindenhurst was the best place to live as a kid back then! Norwald Tukums

Hi my dad was a volunteer fireman in North Lindenhurst and I grew up there, he was also involved with the Bughouse Parades infact he was chief bug at one point. Those were great times. I married a Lindenhurst fireman and he will be celebrating 60 years of active service this yr. Eddie and Otto Liebl woud give our son nails everytime we would go in there to buy something it was a great place.

I miss Lindenhurst Glass on Hoffman Avenue, where I spent a lot of time buying frames in the 1970s & early 1980s with artist friends. The place was awesome. Most of the frames contained photos of the owner in all different hats. Does anyone remember his name? He was quite a character. When did it close? Good times, good times.
