Lively and lively Lindenhurst is very popular with buyers



Realtor Nick Papas likens the crowd in Lindenhurst’s open house to Justin Bieber’s concert. “The market is on fire,” says a broker at Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Atlantic Shores. “In the last few months, each of the three homes I’ve listed had over 80 shows, multiple offers, and over-priced accepted offers. It’s crazy.”

There is a good reason. The village is “transforming into a lively, vibrant and successful town,” says Papas. The developers bought a lot of distressed real estate to turn them over, he said, “seeing the town become a place for entrepreneurs and restaurants to come and make something for themselves.” Added.

Some development is underway. Mayor Michael Laborata said the 241 housing project near the station is expected to be completed by next fall. Part of the Rainbow Senior Center has been refurbished with federal funding. “When it happens in the spring, it’s used as a meeting, club space, veteran event, or second emergency facility in a hurricane,” says Lavorata.

Installing LED lights and solar panels at the station can save $ 12 million in energy costs over 20 years, and a $ 350,000 grant from Suffolk County will be used to improve traffic and vision in the business area. “We’re flipping stones, shaking trees and looking for as much money as we can. We go to governments of all levels,” says Laborata.

The South Shore community, which shares a zip code with North Lindenhurst, has come a long way. Originally known as Wellwood, a misspelled name for Brooklyn real estate developer Thomas Wellwood, according to the Newsday archive, it was renamed to Breslau in 1870 to attract Germans in Manhattan. Was done. Eventually, the name was changed to Lindenhurst in 1891, named after the Linden tree in the area.
