  • NY Ave

    The victim was very likely drunk also and fell into traffic which is why all these people are getting hit on NY Ave. Start testing the victims to see if they played a part in their own injuries.

  • HS Resident

    I’m not suprised. I can’t count how many times a pedestrian has walked out in front of my car while I drive on the NY Ave stretch south of the Station. It seems that they playing chicken, and are daring the cars to hit them.

    Huntington Station is a freakin trainwreck. Now when boatloads of more lower income people move in to Avalon there will be more traffic, people and problems. The Station has no chance of getting any better. A hopeless town full of scummy immigrant people.. grown men riding bikes, people hanging out on streets all day in front of the bodegas, and families living illegally. What a mess.

  • Sam

    Why not? They get to sue your rich American a$$ and live like a King in Guatamala after they heal up. All for a few days stay in tax payer funded Huntington Hospital getting 3 square meals a day.

  • Vernon

    Wish the entire town of Hunt Station can be bulldozed and we can have a do-over. What a disaster.

  • blame voters

    Day laborer site closed up so now scores of men hang out at former Getty gas station,CVS drug store and Community market. Complain and your all racists.Democrats got in again so look for more high density housing. Chamber of commerce also wants more high density housing just ask Ken Christensen aka Republican In Name Only,lord of the corrupt. Slumlord Pius must really be raking in the dough.Much of it taxpayer dollars and illegal renters.Don’t look for help from Huntington Civic group they won’t go after politicians who want high density housing although they complain and bit-h about it. Their useless.

    • Stupid move

      When they kicked Jen LaVertu out is when they killed the Civic Group. Some Liberal Democrat Sue runs the show now. Idiots. Jen was the heartbeat of the organization, she is gone and now it doesn’t beat anymore.
