Renting Movies in the 5 Towns

Last updated: December 31, 2013

For those of us living or visiting the 5 Towns in Nassau County, you’re well aware that there’s a plethora of kosher restaurants (some good and some not), a few late night hangouts, and shuls galore. But one thing that I keep hearing people complain about … there’s nothing to do at home since all the movie / DVD rental places have closed.

  • Hollywood Video went out of business on Rockaway Turnpike.
  • Blockbuster Video went out of business in the Peninsula Shopping Center in Hewlett.
  • But earlier this week I passed by a still alive Blockbuster Video within a 10 minute drive from the area. It was like spotting an endangered species in the wild.

    It is located at 58 East Merrick Road, Valley Stream, NY, a mere ~10 minute drive from the heart of Woodmere.

    Just thought this warranted a short post. I know my neighbors in the 5 Towns will appreciate it.

    –You’re Welcome.

      If you’re reading this blog, you might be tech saavy enough to consider another solution to the above problem… Netflix!

      For those of you flyers out there, Netflix is offering 2,500 American Airlines AAdvantage miles to new paying members. That’s as little as $8 per month, no contracts.

      Worth trying it just for the miles…
