Dramatic changes have been taking place in Farmingdale. The apartment building to the left used to be a parking lot and the one further away used to be a dilapidated building.
Here is the same scene in wintertime before the apartment buildings were erected.
The town of Farmingdale is very convenient for those who like the beach which is a 20 minute car drive away. For those who like Manhattan, you can get there in under an hour - providing the LIRR is running on time. With New York City's current housing crisis, it's no surprise these residences seem to be filling up fast.
