    Awesome! I think there is such a demand for it you'd probably need to wait 2 hours between passes:), but I wouldn't mind that one bit.

    It would be great if it happened but doubt it. All the strips that were here were killed by idiots that moved next to them because it was cheap then complained about the noise. There's not that much open space here in Suffolk for it to be built away from more idiots unless they incorporate it into Riverhead Raceway.
    BTW you do realize these stories are 2 years old.

    Didn't notice the date, just ruined my day. I guess 2 years of study and talk, talk, talk but no action...typical politicians.

    Shoot damn, my son told me about it, it's all over social media now here on long island so I googled it and found those links never looking at the date. Seems to pop up on face book every so often.

    It's a political snow job. The politicians have no intention of building a strip when the same size property can yield 60-75 condos generating hundreds of thousands of dollars a year in property taxes.

    This!

    A dragstrip on LI is a pipe dream. It will never happen. I live by the airport. Do you know how many idiots move in under the landing path of 737's then start complaining about noise? Back when these tracks were built, there was nothing for miles. NY National was in the middle of no where back in 66. Now if you run a gas blower too long you'll get someone complaining to the town

    Only 2 hours? That would be great here, and we have 4 drag strips within a couple hours driving time.

    Plus don't forget all the "undesirables" and the bad element (according to the average LI resident) that the drag strip will attract.

    Yeah, I guess I was being optimistic. E-town was a zoo every time I was there and it was an hour away on a good day. I was thinking if a L.I. Dragstrip was ever a reality, the demand would be unbelievable.

    With what real estate values are in NY, I would think it is not economically feasible.

    The problem on Lawn Guyland is the property taxes are very high hard to make money and pay the taxes when your open 6 months

    You would be more likely getting a shooting range approved in Greenwich Village.
