Is it possible that people are unaware of the Community Garden on the corner of Terry St. and South Ocean? The administration of 1996 responded to the newly formed Patchogue Garden Club's request for a chance to turn a rubble-strewn lot there into a garden. What you see there now was a gift to the public from the administration and a gift from the garden club, which still maintains it. There is a gazebo, benches, and even a chess/checkers table in it. It has real grass. Arts have been shown and perfomed there, and it lifts my spirits when I see people using it. What do they do there? Bring lunch and sit in the sun. Play a guitar and maybe sing.. Have their wedding photos taken. Bring their children and show them the flowers. And so much more. The Patchogue Garden Club is 100% volunteer. We raise money to care for the garden, give scholarships, and donate to other beautification initiatives in the Village. And around the corner on South Ocean Avenue is a lovely bagel shop and cafe where you can get that bagel, coffee, lunch, and more. Or if it is the right weather, stop in at Yochi for frozen yogurt or Ralph's for Italian ice. If it's German you crave, Karl Ehmer is a hop, skip, and jump on the west side of South Ocean. Later in the day, Bella Vino on the north side of South Ocean has what you want. If you are in need of something for dinner at home, just pop into the Bravo market just north of the tracks. I'd write more, but I'm out of characters.

Judy, I agree it would be nice for someone to blog Patchogue history, but it shouldn't be me. I am a relative newcomer, so don't have the required perspective for it. Not to mention I am already blogging on Blogger about the Bay Avenue Habitat Restoration and very busy with several volunteer projects.

Hopefully all the young professionals,artists and hipsters actually show-up and rent these apartments like Tritec promised. As for a market for all those people, ther is a Bravo supermarket on Ocean Ave just north of the LIRR.
