I dont know why that 7-11 does not hire an armed guard. It is a warzone there, and I know they will not get my business because of that.

Several years ago I had to "pop" a known vagrant in the face for being too pushy asking for a handout. It seems the vagrants and drug users are piling up in that area. It's just a matter if time before serious harm comes to somebody.

Absolutely SHOCKING!...LMAO!!! Vincent..not only are they piling up, they are getting VERY brazen....Asking for $$ is one thing, DEMANDING it is another!!!....

The most ghettoest 7-11 in suffolk county. They need armymen to clear the vagrants and immigrants from overflowing.

I just don't shop in that part of town; too scary! But Inspector Oswald doesn't see the problem! PJS is well on the way to becoming another Brentwood/Central Islip, by the time it happens it will be too late and the people with blinders won't understand how this happened!

Have u emailed him? That area is absolutely horrific I work in the worst part of Brooklyn all the time this area is just like it but suburb, its a suburban town with city-like crime and filth.

Sue Malso - yes I have e-mailed him and attended the Civic Association meeting last month when the good Inspector tried to wow us with made up statistics. He said arrests were down - didn't mention crime was down, just arrests. Well of course if you don't make arrests then the numbers will be down. He also said that our town is no different than any other town - what an idiot he is! He thinks he fooled us with his "Statistics". But the problem is not enough people attend these meetings to call him out on the carpet; when asked a question he didn't want to address (even a question asked several times by the CA president) he just want onto another subject. My husband worked in Bed-Stuy and East New York, he says that parts of our town are beginning to resemble those areas. So what so we do when those in charge won't acknowledge there is a serious problem here?

and now there are people wanting to build apartments over by the fun4all property - supposedly for "professionals" from Stony Brook. Really, who would want to live there next to the train station with the homeless, drug addicts, drunks and other vermin hanging out right there. Plus being just yards away from our town's version of spanish harlem? These apartments wil become like the Albany projects in Brooklyn. And guess who will be paying for this? US - the taxpayers!!! I don't even go to that part of town (post office shopping center) let alone would I want to LIVE there! Something needs to be done now to clean up this mess, but no one wants to see this! Who can help us??

At least that 7-11 doesn't have the "We now accept food stamps" sign out front anymore. That was fun to see every time I passed. Hey, has anyone been to "El Lemiño Sport Bar" yet? That can only go well. Also, that's not a typo, the sign says "sport bar."

New commercial idea...Come to Port Jefferson Station where your gang can flourish and be free to pillage.Power to The Low Life's.I Love it here...(NOT) I rather be the guest of honor at a Flash Flood.

I'm a hardworking, professional, married to Earl. We have a lovely home and family; unfortunately, we live in the heart of this area! What can we do? Sadly, selling our house is out of the question, since that would probably destroy us financially. I just fear for all if the descent people who are surrounded by these animals!

We had to " short sell" our home Just to get out of that,neighborhood. Wasnt like that 16 yrs ago when we purchased the house. I am much happier renting Where I live now than owning there. My kids couldnt even walk up to get a slice of pizza without someone asking them for money.

El Lemino Bar Deportivo You caught that too, huh?....I thought it was hysterical....I guess it's a Spanish American sorta place....

Free to pillage....Did you know that after 11pm Pathmark is free range for thieves?...Managers leave, zero security, employees instructed to look the other way and the "shoppers" gather in the parking lot with their oversized coats & hidden bags and walk off with hundreds of dollars of free (eg. stolen) food.... Guess I"M the ass who watches the sales like a hawk...travels from store to store to get the best deal..and ONLY buys when items are on sale!...

My deepest sympathies....While I spend my days (ALL of THEM!) in upper port, I go home...a couple/few miles in distance, but a whole world away!...sadly the neglect of the area by SCPD & PJ Village has taken a huge economic toll on myself & my family, so that I can no longer afford my home, but that's a whole 'nuther burr in my rear!...These people have little/no desire to be anything but wards of the state, as it were, while so many of us are killing ourselves to make a buck (read: MAKE a buck, not TAKE a buck) and because no one of authority cares enough to clean up the area, WE lose and THEY win!... Take a stand...stay tough...

The second most white trash area after Mastic Beach.
