Sunnyside says "Don't fence me in"


A construction fence that has impeded sidewalk travel in Sunnyside for seven years has caught the attention of the city Department of Transportation, Community Board 2 Chairman Joe Conley announced last week.

The Department of Transportation issued a Notice of Violation Jan. 14 to the property owner, Metropolitan Management LLC, ordering the company to remove the unauthorized encroachment within 30 days. If the fence is not moved, the city may move and replace the fence at the owner's expense.


Move dangerous fence in Sunnyside, city says

The property at 46-11 Queens Blvd. has remained vacant, however, with a construction fence that blocks a portion of the heavily traveled sidewalk.

DOB records show the property owner filed plans for a four-story, 17,900-square-foot commercial building in 2004, but the plan was rejected.

A permit for the fence, applied for on June 7, 2001, was approved on April 16, 2007.

Conley said the fence is next to a bus stop. The sidewalk, he said, narrows to a point where people have to walk single file around the bus stop.

Is this the site where that "accidental" fire occurred?

I think the photo is of another vacant lot. The one at 46-11 is between st@rb*c#s and a barbershop, not a corner. I'll post a picture later.

The address is at the easternmost part of this lot, but that's the right spot. There may be buildings at the corner now.

the tmobile building is on the corner i believe. This site is mid block. If the city didnt give the owner a hard time, maybe a nice retail building would have been up by now.

Anonymous above is correct - this pic is a few years old, and the structure containing tmobile and starbux now takes up the westernmost section, with the current lot (kind of a quarry, really) and the Offending Fence In Question to its east.

What building was located on the site? What stores were located there? The sidewalk is indeed too narrow...unacceptable that it is still vacant after all these years.

From what I remember there was a grocery in the corner of 46& Queens (great tomatoes)that burned down, followed by a Korean Restaurant that burned down....more or less from what the rumor is.....I don't remember if there was anything elese in between the two, but the picture is old.
