End of the Thruway Plaza in Nanuet (1960 – 2021)
NANUET, NY – A strip mall that goes back to the 1960’s, was the home to the first Dunkin’ Donuts in the county and a popular movie theater, and more recently the Thruway Deli has been demolished.
The nearly vacant Thruway Plaza has been approved by the Town of Clarkstown planning board to be a hotel destination with a gas station and convenience store.
Renamed Gateway Commons of Nanuet, the project is slated to include a five-story 121-room Holiday Inn Express, and a QuickChek with gas pumps on the 6.6-acre site. The revitalized shopping center will maintain the KFC/Taco Bell restaurant and the cell tower will remain on site.
This will be Rockland County’s first QuickChek. A separate Dunkin’ Donuts drive-thru will be added.

In March of 2020, a fire started in the Thruway Deli and spread to multiple stores. Video can be viewed in the link below
