What Should Occupy Former Gas Station Site?

It's an entry point into Morristown that's severely underutilized at the moment.

It's a heckuva way to be welcomed into Morristown.

Not that a gas station is a town's crown jewel, but an operational one is certainly a better entry point than one that has been shut down for at least a few years. Judging from the decal in the window indicating anyone born after 1989 would get checked for cigarettes, we are guessing this place shut down somewhere around 2007-2008. If that's the case, people have had some time to think about what should "Occupy This Space."

On the corner of Macculloch Avenue and Market Street, this corner lot does welcome people into one section of town, so that should be taken into account. It also has some pretty long-tenured neighbors, with and right across the street. Additionally, a stone's throw from this site. It's ripe for possibility.

So, what do you think should "Occupy This Space?" Chime in below.

A new Morristown Visitor's Center. - A miniature victorian house surrounded by a little park/benches and some parking spaces.

A quaint family owned deli/bakery with outdoor plants and seating. It has a really cool back yard that can accomodate this. Something that will close early so as not to inconvenience the surrounding neighbors

JPB, I like your idea...but as a neighbor of the spot-LONGER hours not short ones are preferred. Bakery/deli/coffee/convenience store. yah!

I would love to see something move in here. I walk past it everytime I go to the Green. I agree with the Wawa/convenience store suggestions. The Exxon station doesn't sell milk or other items like that, so it would be very convenient.

I live very close to that location and I can tell you now our neighborhood will NEVER allow a convenience store and rightly so. There's absolutely no need for it and we don't want that in a densely residential neighborhood. You can get milk ANYWHERE in town. No walking traffic and no parking, so it's a difficult corner. May also be contaminated from the gas station operations. How about grass?
