Here's a shot of 34-36 and 34-40 35th Street on a nice sunny day last spring.
And here's the shot taken this past week. You'll note the X's painted on the homes, indicating that they're vacant. Why? Because an outfit called "Astoria Gardens LLC" applied for demo permits last October for both of them. What is Astoria Gardens LLC? Well, the address on the DOB filings is 34-12 36TH STREET, that of Kaufman-Astoria Studios.
As the Kaufman Astoria parking lot is next door, I think we know what to expect to see here in the future.
