A car drove through the front window of the Starbucks at The Gardens at Great Neck during the afternoon of Thursday, April 7.
One glass panel was entirely shattered into tiny pieces. Fortunately, no one inside the café was hurt, according to Starbucks employee Mr. Jones.
Witnesses said that the car was driven by an older couple, who was being put into the ambulances when the Great Neck Record reporter arrived on the scene.
The coffee house, located off Middleneck Road at 6 Great Neck Rd., reopened the day after this incident. A week later, the front window is boarded up, but inside, it’s business as usual.
This is not the first time something like this happened in Great Neck. Since the AT&T incident just more than a year ago, the store has been permanently closed.

begs the question…why doesn’t this shopping center have pillars along the curbs to prevent this kind of thing?
