Keith Banks WHERE HE RENTS: Wyandanch Village Banks, 53, says he heard about the Wyandanch Village project several years ago, and decided to inquire about renting after his company relocated him from Port Jefferson to Melville. “With work, I sometimes go into the city and I needed something more convenient to the train station,” Banks says. “I can literally roll out of bed and be on the platform.” Banks’s parents used to own a beauty supply store, salon and record store in the footprint of the development, and Banks recently opened a business, Sir Shave, on the lower level of the 91-unit complex.
