Hopefully it will be Barnes and Noble, which might be expanding due to the closings of Borders. After all, it's perfectly set up for a large book store.

Sooooo great if B & N would come in. Nothing like cafe where one could sprawl out with a great book, laptop and be able to meet like minded readers!

You're right. A bookstore would make a great fit since it worked so well before. Can a big bookstore survive there again?

Chipotle is opening in Syosset this fall and I was pretty sure it was going to be at the old Bicycle Planet location. Now I see that TD Bank is building there. Considering that Chipotle usually opens very close to Panera, I'm thinking the actual location might be part of a newly divided Borders.

>>>>are you kidding another bank!?!?!?!?!?<<<<<< Yeah. I was sort of hoping for another nail salon or real estate office, too.
