Farmingville, NY – On July 30 and 31, the Town of Brookhaven demolished two dilapidated zombie houses in Mastic Beach as part of Councilman Dan Panico’s (left photo) efforts to clean up the waterfront community. The houses, located at 114 Pine Road (left) and 102 Hickory Road (right), were demolished by the Town’s Department of Recycling and Sustainable Materials Management and the property will be preserved as open space. Pictured left to right are Pattersquash Creek Civic Association president Frank Fugarino; Supervisor Ed Romaine; Councilman Panico and Suffolk County Legislator Rudy Sunderman.

Supervisor Ed Romaine said, “The demolition of these eyesores is another example of how the Town of Brookhaven is keeping our promise to improve the quality of life in Mastic Beach. Houses like these are a detriment to the community and I commend Councilman Panico for his efforts to get the job done.”

Councilman Panico said, "The most aggressive battle against suburban blight in the history of Brookhaven Town is being waged by this administration, and we are winning for our residents. We are working to strip away the years of decay in Mastic Beach so the area's true beauty can shine."
