Here we have a low-rise manu- facturing property under M1-3 zoning. It's located along a gritty stretch of Van Dam Street. The name of this area is still called "Blissville" by some.
A 12-story hotel now sits on the triangular lot at 52-29 34th Street, which was combined from 4 separate lots. The run down deli with the yellow awning is still in front of it. The rest of the neighborhood is commercial, with a handful of 2-family houses mixed in. Under M1 zoning, hotels are allowed. But Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott? And one that's this high? Sheesh. The shady locations of Queens hotels continue to boggle the mind. I bet this area has great sewer capacity, too.
