No More ABA, But We Can Still Drive the Lane

Two pillars of Long Island life in the 1970s were the ABA’s New York Nets and our very own Dairy Barn. Once in a while, they came together for a late-night quart of milk. The ABA is history and the Nets are elsewhere, but you can still drive through 48 Dairy Barns on our otherwise uncivilized island.

    Dairy Barn – Long Island's own.
    And I don't understand why. The drive-through convenience store is a fabulous thing, especially when you have toddlers who tend to fall asleep in carseats. I would have killed to get a Dairy Barn in NJ when my kids were little – why haven't they expanded?
