What Does Mount Sinai Need in 2013?

What would you like to see in Mount Sinai this year?

Mount Sinai is a vast area of the North Shore with beaches, parks, an expansive business district and more.

There was much turnover with businesses in the area during 2012. The famed White Castle left to make way for a Dunkin Donuts drive-thru, a troubled restaurant location received new life in Bench Warmers and Savino's Hideaway reopened after being shut down for years.

There was also new development and more scheduled for the upcoming year. The Mt. Sinai Village Center got it's OK near the end of 2011, but little has come of it since.

What would you like to see happen in Mt. Sinai during 2013? Tell us in the comments below.

The plot that has been partially developed next to the Hertiage Diner..either build something or let it go back to being woods. It looks horrible.

Agreed! That is such an eyesore and something should be done about that. Also, all the car dealers, tire shops and mechanics shops make that strip of 25A that is Mt. Sinai look awful. That whole area from the Mt. Sinai Diner to the new TD Bank needs a facelift.

How about a Trader Joes or Whole Foods????

A facelift for 25a sounds wonderful...but not likely....so meanwhile I enjoy all that my town has to offer....lots of convenient shopping, dining, award winning schools, a great park, the harbor and cedar beach....and my friends!

Fairway Market! They are as cheap as TJ, but and a better selection and quality than WF (both of which I'd be happy with, but TJ is a bit too addictive and causes me to stray from healthy). The nearby organic options are severely limited. (PJV)

UGH: "but and"; take your pick I guess. I apparently have the same editing skills as HuffPost.

Trader Joes would be wonderful! Whole Foods for me is Whole Paycheck store! Your dollar stretches a lot more at Trader Joes, Whole Foods is overrated;) No more banks or CVS's please...

Fairways or TJ please. Healthful options. No more banks.

And please consider joining the beach clean up efforts through Coastal Steward. Keep our beaches pristine!

A mosque...yep, definitely a mosque

Help by simply this: STOP BUYING HELIUM BALLOONS. There is a seemingly infinite amount of curling ribbon and burst balloon pieces tangled all along the shore line foliage. Aside from the wildlife that dies from their encounters with such; it looks horrendous, is difficult to clean up, and the bright colors may attract small children into the briar where they may get injured.

A Cross walk at the intersection of Rt 83 and Mt Sinai-Coram Rd making it easier and safer walking to the park. Mt Sinai-Coram Rd east of Rt 83 needs more traffic control such as traffic lights and stop signs to calm traffic down. Rt 25A needs a facelift. Too many used car dealers and did we really need a 2nd Tire Center? I am happy we got a new DD but why is it so ugly. Both Mavis and DD are just ugly commercial buildings. I am amazed that our Civic Association did not request any aesthetic enhancement changes to Mavis and Dunkin Donuts or seek ways to make Mt. Sinai a more beautiful place to live. I have seen new Dunkin Donuts built with a more of a Colonial and traditional look. Maybe Mt Sinai needs a beautification committee? A Fairway Market would be a nice addition and a Steak House.
