I made a little trip into Elmhurst and was on my way back down Broadway toward Queens Blvd. I stopped to admire the church in the distance. Then it suddenly dawned on me: WHOA, I CAN SEE THE CHURCH! That freakin' burnt-out eyesore building at the corner is gone! I had to stop and think for awhile about this...when did I last pass through here? Surely, it was after 4/1/08, when this shed expired.
The demo permit was only applied for 5/23/08 and was issued 6/23/08 so I'm not sure how the shed expired 4/1/08...
As previously mentioned on Queens Crap, the developer is building a 6-story, 83-unit apartment house along the Boulevard of Death.
I thought that building was distinctive with its hints of Art Deco. Wasn't the plan to build above it originally?
Two of the ugliest communities in NYC, Elmhurst and Flushing.
What happened to Elmhurst is a shame. What happened to Flushing is a crime.
No accident, like the two ugliest boulevards in the city, Queens Blvd and Astoria Blvd, they are in Queens.
