From the Queens Tribune:
“This neighborhood is turning into a dead man’s land,” said Gail Solomon, speaking of Aguilar Avenue and Kissena Boulevard, adjoining stretches of commercial property in Kew Gardens Hills. Solomon, dismayed by the news that the Pathmark on Aguilar Avenue will close for good this May 29, looks up from her wheelchair and says “we need supermarkets.”
Norse Aguilar Realty – a company with many real estate holdings along Aguilar Avenue and Kissena Boulevard – holds a lease with Pathmark that runs until 2019. That leaves Pathmark in a $27,000-per-month bind until it can find a party to sub-lease from them, or from whom they can elicit a guarantee for the landlord...Bad news for all: if the company can not find a stand-in, the lot will remain empty until Pathmark’s lease is up.
