Introducing the Melrose Ballroom
There's a building going up in Astoria called the Melrose Ballroom at 36-08 33rd Street.
Their website advertises it as coming in early 2013, but apparently they're a bit behind schedule.
Here's what the finished product will look like. Hooray for chartreuse!
Just for fun, I decided to see what was there before this new building. Oh, I'm sorry, according to the permits, this is not a new building. There was only supposed to be "INTERIOR DEMOLITION AT FIRST FLOOR, MEZZANINE, AND SECOND FLOOR."
Yeah, okay. They DID get caught, BTW.
The final result will be this.
"Miraculous Greek singers" are scheduled to perform here starting mid-November. Why, you may ask?
