This aerial shot shows Woodhaven Boulevard between 60th Drive and 60th Road, nestled between LIRR tracks and an off-ramp from the LIE. The white buldings near the bottom of the screen were your typical 2-floor apartment above storefront buildings. (The Crapper's uncle lived in the one closest to the church in the 1950s.) North of these houses is a gas station, and behind them were 3 two-family houses built in the 1930s. The one closest to the church is owned by the congregation.
The white buildings were torn down several years ago, and in the process, under- mining of the church and possibly the gas station occurred.
The building that replaced them at 60-70 Woodhaven Blvd is still not finished, but plans submitted show that there will be dozens of units here and inadequate parking.
Meanwhile, the same developer is tearing down 2 of the three houses behind it. Plans submitted (and rejected by DOB) called for a 4-story building with 7 apartments, 3 levels of community facilities, and no parking what- soever.
