Pretty busy down at the Grand Union parking lot…

The heyday of suburbia, with the newest vehicle I see being the 1961 Chevy in the left foreground.  This place seemed immediately familiar to me, and for good reason:  decades later it still retained distinctive features from this view,–I often passed it in my work commute from 1996-2008. 

It’s the Cherrywood Shopping Center in Wantagh, Long Island, where Wantagh Avenue intersects with Jerusalem Avenue.  Below is a 2007 view of its signature sign, from Ben Dewrance on Flickr.  A recent Google street view is here.
