“As a preservation architect, I was careful not to bastardize this building,” Matthew La Piana, who operates his architecture business from the same building, said during the interview.

“I don’t even have my own sign up,” added La Piana, noting that he and his wife (they purchased the building in 2019) chose to leave up the beloved neon Thornhill’s Pharmacy sign.

Matthew La Piana is an architect and owns Building Restoration Consultants Unlimited, while Lauri La Piana operates Lighthouse Court Reporting Inc. They have offices on the second floor, while Sayville N Spice is on the first floor.
