Three houses on the east side of 186th Street between the Horace Harding Expressway and 64th Avenue were approved for demolition last week amid concerns in the neighborhood that they may be replaced by much taller commercial structures.
186th St. houses slated for demolition
The three houses at 61-25, 61-29 and 61-33 186th St. are built in a style similar to their R3-2 neighbors, but have as the eastern border of their back yards the Fresh Meadows Shopping Complex and its parking lot, which make use of the C4-2 zoning. The other structures on the east side of the block are real estate offices.
Alex Christodoulides of the Times Ledger seems to be the only reporter in Queens to consistently write about these issues. My hat's off to her.
