Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Buildings near Republic Airport, East Farmingdale, New York
Schaffer calls on state to raze vacant aircraft buildings, remediate site to spur development

Buildings near Republic Airport that housed operations for the once booming aircraft industry have sat vacant for decades, abandoned and dilapidated, and Babylon Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer wants them razed.

Schaffer recently asked Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and state lawmakers to demolish the three buildings on state property, clean up the site and develop it.

The three buildings and a water tower on the Conklin Street property between Route 110 and New Highway in East Farmingdale are partly obscured by trees and brush, but the largest building’s rusty shell and broken windows peek through.


A spokeswoman with the state Department of Environmental Conservation said that "the property is not in the state’s Brownfield Cleanup Program" and that more testing would be needed  before any development is begun.
