Hauppauge has a lot of great attributes including some of the region's best dining and a regional employment engine with its industrial park.
But for all it does have, many in Hauppauge have lamented the lack of a central area in the community. Unlike nearby Smithtown, Stony Brook and Port Jefferson, Hauppauge has no downtown. In fact, it even lacks a central village green where locals can gather.
To be fair, there are no plans on the table to create a community hub in Hauppauge, but that shouldn't stop its residents from imagining a place in town where, just maybe, one day a Hauppauge downtown or village green could emerge.
So let us know in the comments: Where should Hauppauge's center of town be? Where would a village green fit in nicely? We'll collect the best answers for a future post.
