Restored 1930s Gas Station

If you like nostalgia or old cars, it's a cool place for a quick stop. I only wish I could've opened the garage doors to look at the beautiful vehicles inside.

Yaphank Garage

The Yaphank Garage is a restored Shell station from the 1930s. It has been renovated and you can walk around the outside and examine the old tow truck as well as the old pumps. You can look into the window at the office, which has be restored to what it may have looked like decades ago. A good photo-op for anyone into old cars and nostalgia.
