46-01 Francis Lewis Blvd Bayside NY -Rev Ideal Pharmacy
Hi Queens Crapper,
You probably already know about this but in case you don't...
Yesterday a realtor I know told me about a conversation he had with a developer about the piece of land that Waldbaums (formerly A&P) and Astoria Fed. Bank and Garden World all share on Francis Lewis Blvd in Flushing/Auburndale. The dev. told him that they were looking to get rid of all those businesses and put up more houses. I grew up in this area, my parents still live there, and i'm at Garden World with them all the time. That place is always jammed. Frankly, most of those businesses are.
I saw a sign on the fence facing Franny Lou last night and looked up the company - First Development Corp out on LI. Please see attached. It seems they're only interested in getting rid of Garden World which would be such a major loss for that area. It's been there since 1947. UGH. i know progress is necessary but come on ANOTHER pharmacy? Blech.
Next time I get to Garden World I'm going to ask around and see if anyone knows anything. Depending on what info I get, I'll contact the Auburndale Association and/or Tony Avella, etc. This kind of stuff can be stopped if people get loud enough (I hope).
Keep up the great work. Love your blog.
