Almost two months after Aid Auto Stores after being in business on Long Island since 1966, the Rocky Point location has gone dark.

The store ran a "Going Out of Business" sale during that time period, and now the spot is up for lease. This location joins the door as the two vacant spots in the Crossroads Plaza West where Route 25A and North Country Road meet.

The Rocky Point VFW now has a new addition as the Rocky Point and the Town of Brookhaven dedicated a bronze statue of a German Shepard to the memorial Satruday.

The statue, funded with over $20,000 in private donations to the Rocky Point VFW, honors animals that played a vital part in the rescue and recovery effort following the attacks 11 years ago.

After a viral fundraiser to support building a museum on Nikola Tesla's Wardenclyffe property in Shoreham , Town of Brookhaven officials have voiced their support of the project and announced some formal plans.

The property, which includes the original main building constructed in the early 1900s, is presently zoned A-Residence-2 (1 dwelling unit/2-acres). As Councilwoman Jane Bonner , the Route 25A Land Use Plan allows for a transitional use consistent with the Town’s J-Business District. This designation is designed to permit non-retail commercial uses while concentrating retail commercial to "more appropriate areas", and a museum would be allowed on the property under the plan.
