This building at the north end of Old County Road has a half-empty front and the sign advertises spaces from 256 square feet to 6,000 square feet.
The north corner of Old County and Rockaway Beach Avenue lost a clothing boutique recently and the second-story space above sits vacant.
This former restaurant has been vacant for a while. It is for sale for $2.75 million, with plans for a massive new building on the site approved.
Walk one block to the west onto Dondee Way and see a real sign of the times. This former jewelry store has a new office with a sign outside that reads "Bank Owned & Foreclosures...Ask for FREE List...No Better Time to Buy!"
