The former Long Beach Road Joe’s Crab Shack location has been torn down, and will be replaced by an Old Navy clothing store, officials from the Town of Hempstead Zoning Board of Appeals confirmed.
Joe’s Crab Shack in Oceanside abruptly closed last September. A sign was left on the door, and the exterior lighting, signs and fixtures were removed.
Joe’s Crab Shack was known for oversized alcoholic drinks, tubs of seafood and a wait staff who would take to the floor and dance from time to time.
According to the board, construction on the project is being undertaken by G & L Building Services, a Sag Harbor based construction company. The company did not respond to requests for comment.
