More of Edgardo's Dream Home

A few weeks ago, QC featured the mega- McMansion of former Mets player Edgardo Alfonzo in Little Neck.
The house was put up for sale for $8 million, then knocked down to $6.5 million, reported the NY Times.
We got new photos of the monstrosity recently, and we'll let them speak for themselves!

Do not laugh. They might try to landmark this building in a few decades.

I once sat though an excruciating lecture by the MAS where they highlighted the awful 60s architecture of Queens Blvd. They suggested that it some of it was someday eligible for designation.

Not many Queens speakers were present. Besides, they would have wasted valuable air time on places like Waldheim, Richmond Hill, Old Astoria and Bungalow colonies.

You should see Mike Piazza's former home in Malba! What is it with these Mets players? Most can't play for shit, then they build monstrous homes and abandon them when they move. Gag, I'm glad I'm originally from the Bronx and a proud Yankee fan!

I think Edgardo's house must be a stunner all lit up for X-mas. Maybe "House & Garden" would supervise the Yultide decorations and the real estate broker could charge admission. A real good charity benefit!

Hey, LIC is Yankee country!

I'm not a big fan of houses that are oversized compared to their neighbors but unless I'm mistaken I see what appears to be an apartment building or some sort of multi family dwelling right behind his home.

I'd prefer a McMansion to an apartment building on my block anyday.

Do you want your Mc Mansion with or without cheese?

The apartment behind is on Little Neck Parkway, near the LIE service road.

Where is this house exactly? Where in Little Neck?

I didn't know Mike Piazza lived in Malba, that *is* the best place in Queens to put up a mansion.
