  • Tommy’s has consistently supported the community with fund-raisers for many organizations and has always been willing to step up when needed. They have put much money into building improvements to make their part of Broadway a nice place to see and visit. They are a big part of revitalizing our downtown area.
    If the music is kept at proper levels and played at the proper times this would be something that Rocky Point would definitely benefit from.
    We need to spend more time supporting businesses that want to open, expand or improve in our community and less time saying “NO’ to everything.

  • I can understand residents expecting the worst, but why not grant a temporary permit on a trial basis and see what happens? If the town handles this responsibly we can look forward to an enjoyable venue for summer music in our town. This could be a good thing.

  • The Town can have weekly concerts at St. Anthony’s, which I can hear 1/2 mile away, yet Tommy’s place a credit to downtown Rocky Point cannot have some guitar players? Please…

  • I think if it stays truly acoustic, it may bring a nice atmosphere to town.

  • I think that is a great idea.

  • Don’t underestimate the coalition of the stupid in North Shore Beach.

    They’re the same morons that like things just the way they are/were.The sad reality is that they are losing steam as newer, smarter and more affluent folks move in who want far more from their North Shore hamlet than bikers, bungalows and old fat alkys swimming is sewage at Friendship Beach.

    Kudos to Tommys for taking a chance on RP thats paid off. Downtown’s really starting to make some progress but there’s plenty more to do. I cant think of a spot on LI with more upside to invest in.The old guard who’s made a living on slumlording just needs to go away ..and now. Once you realize whos behind the curtain its really easy to spot the real estate ruse fortunately for us theyre not long for this earth anyway.

    Damn the torpedoes and rock on Rocky Point….youre looking good.

    Little by slowly.

  • With possible increase of bar/pub business at Tommy’s (with outside loud speaker music and dining), what increased parking needs, for this potential expansion, where discussed? Will King Road, Eagle and Prince Roads serve as additional parking for possible over flow of pub go’ers? Will pub go’ers be parking in front of people’s homes, now that the no parking on King Road restriction has been lifted (see recent Sun article on this)?
    How will this possible over flow of pub traffic effect the community if parking to accommodations have not been addressed? (not to mention additional cespool needs for a larger resturant crowd)
    One concern which must be addressed by the Rocky Point Community is safety for children. If an over flow of cars are parking along King, Prince or Eagle Road, for example, would not this situation make it more dangerous for people (teenagers who like to roam at night in the warmer months) to navigate the roadways, as they are made much more narrow by additional parked cars from more pub go’ers Tommy’s would attract?
    Has the Town Board or Planning Board taken these (above) concerns into consideration? Does the dstrict rep. for this area have concerns over the negative effects this expansion at Tommy’s may create for the everyday resident of this community? Do the owner’s of Tomy’s live in this small community?
    If these questions and concerns have been taken into consideration and addressed, can someone please post on this blog the complete solutuion for my inquiry?
    What do you think PMS (my blog critic)?

  • This variance is for outdoor music, not for an increase in allowable capacity. We should be encouraging local businesses to do all they can to reach their potential. Current parking rules allow for ample parking in a private parking lot with additional street parking. As for pedestrians, I believe there are sidewalks in this area. Can someone verify this?
