Plans to open the first museum for the Long Island Music Hall of Fame in Wyandanch have fallen by the wayside, according to Newsday. The nonprofit organization, which is based in Melville, had planned to build the museum as part of the town’s $500 million revitalization effort dubbed Wyandanch Rising. That public-private project has been ongoing since 2002. Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone spearheaded the redevelopment effort. Neither he nor officials with the LIMHOF returned Newsday’s inquiries about the plan’s sudden demise. As proposed, the museum was to have 10,000 square feet in a 100,000-square-foot commercial building in Wyandanch, a hamlet in the town of Babylon. Suffolk County gave $1.2 million to Babylon for the museum’s interior. That money will now be used for a YMCA-run event space in the building. [Newsday]
