Trylon Theater & Tower Diner block advertised as hi-rise development site
A special thank you to former City Council Member and current Queens Machine-backed Queens Borough Presidential candidate Melinda Katz for making sure the LPC rejected the landmarking application.
Quote: In an interview with the Daily News, Katz explained that she was not disappointed in Tierney's decision, and thanked him for taking a "very careful look" at the Trylon issue. She added that the Trylon had been modified too much from its original look, with the theater's interior and marquee having been redone in 1984 and 1994, respectively. "I never thought that this was a building suitable for landmarking," Katz said. "I guess I'm just happy that he [Tierney] made a decision, and now we move on.
Actually, the facade of the building was what activists sought for landmarking, and that's the only part of a building the LPC can designate, unless it's open to the public, which this wasn't. As for the marquee, it's very unlikely that it would not be replaced over time. It hasn't stopped countless other landmark designations of theaters. The facade was 100% intact. Melinda knows this. She'd rather have development on Queens Blvd than preservation. Enjoy much more of this type of behavior should she enter Borough Hall and make the entire borough the Katz litter box.

Criminal. It's vandalism, pure and simple.
Avella for Borough President!
the blandest diner ever is going away
7.8 mill.....possibly 10% return if all rented... minus expenses.barely 5% profit then you have to pay income taxes on that...
then if you had to borrow the money..poof!...what it means you own a big piece of property in a great location and cant make any yearly profit on it
So tearing it down and building a high rise makes economic sense.....
Well, that certainly justifies tearing down the whole block, Alen.
Most of these cheap low-life politicians start off with good intentions. They accomplish some good deeds in their first years and then realize that their good deeds do them no good and slowly compromise their ethics for political favors and campaign donations all the while running for re-election and then higher office. They run on the memory of their past achievements and no one notices or cares.
Soon all their work is for the corporations, lobbyists, unions, developers and their own bank accounts and nothing for the constituents.
Very sad but very true.
These old time Forest Hillers haven't awakened to the fact of the Bukharian invasion yet.
The old European (German) Jewish population is dwindling in Forest Hills.
The newly arrived barbarians from the steppes are calling the shots there now.
Most of these cheap low-life politicians start off with good intentions.
Not Melinda Katz. She's been a cold, calculating reptilian political animal since her early days as Alan Hevesi's mistress.
