New sign, improvements coming to broken military center

A new sign has been installed and other improvements are coming to the military recruiting center that residents say has been an eyesore for two years.

Area business leader John Bonizio says for more than two years, the storefront at 63 Westchester Square has remained unused. He says there were no signs or light bulbs and wires are exposed on the outside of the building.

Rep. Joseph Crowley (D-7th District) says after receiving multiple complaints, he spoke with the leaseholder, who agreed to install a new sign outside the storefront.

Residents say they are glad the owners are taking steps to make improvements but many more are needed. Crowley says a roll-down gate in front of the building will also be replaced within a year.
