New Hyde Park Harley-Davidson dealership application resurfaces

An application for a Harley-Davidson dealership in New Hyde Park is revving up again, after nearly a year of delays.

After an initial public hearing last October, the applicant, Amir Jarrah of Lifelong Cycles Inc., has submitted an engineering report and a $10,000 deposit for the village to retain its own experts, village Mayor Robert Lofaro said.

Lofaro said the village board is currently reviewing engineering firms and intends to select one or more next month.

Preliminary plans call for a 16,000 square foot dealership with a 27-foot, two-story building at 1324 Jericho Tpke. There would also be an 8,000-square-foot ground floor showroom, a 6,200-square-foot repair shop in the basement, and a 1,800 square feet office space on the second floor.

New Hyde Park residents have been vocal about traffic, noise, and quality of life concerns.

The application will likely be discussed at another public hearing in November or December, Lofaro said.
