TOTTENVILLE — An older Tottenville-based shopping center at the intersection of Amboy Road and Page Avenue is undergoing a renovation that will ultimately make it fresh and inviting come next summer.
Tottenville Square, managed by Rivercrest Realty Investors, will add Walgreens to the section of the plaza once occupied by Burger King and Dolphin Fitness Club.
According to Rivercrest site real estate manager Helen Vitaliano, the location will gain about 9,300 square feet of retail space. The expansion will extend toward Page and include the Qdoba Mexican Grill.
A second floor with approximately 9,000 square feet of retail space will be built on top of the new wing.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. - Damaged by Hurricane Sandy in October, the roof of the 130-year-old landmarked Magyar Reformed Church was cause of concern for the Charleston church's small congregation.
The eight members had little money in its treasury, but needed to fix the roof after a tree crashed through the rear of it.
"We never thought we'd be able to do it," said Linda Hauck, president of the church council.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- It's the southernmost town in New York state, a place that for centuries felt a bit off the beaten track to all but those who lived there. Though the railway stops -- or starts -- in Tottenville, depending on how you view it, the community was considered "the country" long after the rest of Staten Island began to feel urban and suburban.
It was a neighborhood where hands-on oystering thrived for decades; many of its homes are still of the vintage variety and its historical society has recently raised its profile, singing the neighborhood's praises from a storefront in the village.
