Visions for Vacancies: Blue Point Gas Station Location

What would you like to see move into the spot that's housed many a gas station over the years on Montauk Highway in Blue Point.

This gas station location, just a block or so east of Blue Point Avenue on the north side of Montauk Highway, has been home to many different companies and now and then is used as a squatter's flea market site. In its heyday it was the original home of the Sphinx which is now proudly displayed at Fontana's concrete business in Bayport.

It's got plenty of parking and even a scenic pond area to the west. What would you love to see move in? Take our poll and comment below and we'll compile reader feedback next week.

There's a group home nearby? Would be curious where it is. I've seen a squatter in the home next to Capital One bank. The place I'm real curious about is behind the "Budget Motel", it looks like an old motel itself, real scary looking.

It's next to the deli and across the street from the strip that has Blue Point Bar & Grill/the old Sprinkles. It looks like a giant house and is listed as some type of plumbing business but it is def a residence. The place behind the budget motel seems to be some type of apts but it IS really scary. Once during a walk down Park Street, I mistook the easement for a street and walked through there. Bad idea.

Blue Point is a curious area to me. I walk down there a few times per year because my mechanics, Sal & Ken Felice are there (5 stars in my book lol). I've always been curious about the "Budget Motel", it doesn't seem to quite fit in. The strip of stores where the Pad Thai Restaurant is has been an eyesore since I moved here 4 years ago, with another deserted gas station adjoining them. There are two locations I know of that are on their fourth restaurant incarnation in that length of time, not to mention many with a second or third business there. There's a "muscle car" showroom in W. Sayville, the cars are still there and there are For Rent signs in the window.

Great Idea , Possibly add a small ice cream and light lunch shop and pick-nic tables
