On Thursday, we asked Syosset Patch Facebook readers to tell us what they want to see happen in Syosset in 2014.

Here are their wishes for the coming year: 
  • More bike-friendly lanes
  • Better streets and sidewalks
  • Better infrastructure
  • Better streets. Especially in south grove neighborhood and by the elementary school.
  • Fix up our beautiful town. Fix curbs and sidewalks. Get rid of the wires hanging by crosswalk by Cardinali's. Westbury and Huntington have lovely towns…why can't we?
What's on your 2014 wishlist for Syosset? Post in the Comment box below.

The current LIRR station location affords hundreds of people to walk to the station. Moving it to Robins Ln/Landia site will force people like me into their cars and will create more congestion throughout the area.

I know they aren't the most like thing but a traffic circle at the Underhill and Jackson intersection would help the traffic flow at the train tracks and safety of pedestrians. Also, an underground pedestrian walkway at the train tracks on the station house/platform side. Pedestrians would be able to cross underneath with a train in the station.

Take the proper environmental and safety procedures when demolishing the small houses in the neighborhood that contain asbestos. The contractors and town refuse to protect the health of the community and either play dumb or pass the blame when they are confronted.

We need a left turning lane going north To south.before the tracks .just reduce the sidewalk on the west side of Jackson in front of the bank .this would allow for a south bound lane and a left turning lane into the train station.
