The Ship restaurant will be the latest landmark restaurant on Rt.1 to be torn down in the past few years. The Hilltop Steak House before that.

There are plans for a new restaurant and coffee shop as well as a bank and lots of retail space..

I'd like to see the ship be re-built somewhere else, but there's no word on whether that is in the plans.
