No more minding their own beeswax
That tall building on the double wide lot at 73-37 Grand Avenue was believed to be an old hotel. For decades, there were grape vines growing in the front yard, giving the place a certain spookiness.
Here's the site today. What can we look forward to here? Store at ground level and 12 apartments. Recreation on the roof and only 6 parking spaces. Yeah, that'll be enough with all the stores along Grand... But wait, do I see a posted paper with red lettering on it? Yes, I do!
Here's the adjacent building that was undermined and vacated. The two buildings on the left are vacant and for sale, but the one between them and the empty lot is actually the location of a division of a successful manufacturer. Well, it was, anyway.
