This prewar co-op at 54-17 31st Avenue in Woodside has three bedrooms and one bathroom and was recently renovated. The 1930s building, Boulevard Gardens, was designed by Theobald Henry Engelhardt, the son of Brooklyn’s well-known architect Theobald M. Engelhardt. It has a children’s playground with sprinkler pool as well as an indoor playroom, storage, and bike storage. It’s also close to Astoria and the R, which gets you into Manhattan or to Woodside’s excellent restaurants and Jackson Heights quickly. Do you think it’s a good deal for $379,000?

The tipster who sent us this photo reports that the last remaining building was demolished this week. The final structures slated for demolition were the townhouses along Jackson Avenue, which were about half demolished earlier this month. Demolition […]

Both events – which took place over two, consecutive, six-month periods – had major impact on Queens and the rest of the world. Plus, both are currently celebrating major anniversaries (50th and 75th). […]

I may not have expressly stated it previously, but even though I am able to function in summer, the heat and humidity wears me down to a nub by Labor Day every year; and I don’t feel fully dressed unless I can wear a jacket. Psychoanalyze that any way you wish, but I have always […]
