Forgotten New York is a program of the Greater Astoria Historical Society, a non-profit organization supported by the Long Island City community.
I have been interested in this building for a long time for a possible educational/cultural learning facility with associated mercantile enterprises. I am hard-pressed to find the owner of this facility. The for-rent sign does not provide detailed information. I need detailed information before even looking at the bldg. such as liens, taxes, zoning, etc.
This building was once the Bank of the Unites States which went defunct during the Depression.
This corner used to be a gathering place on Sunday mornings for Jewish trade union guys-carpenters,plumbers,and house painters all having their specific quadrant.
I grew up on Union St near ENY Ave between 1946-62 and when I was a little kid,my dad would walk me to see trains at Van Sinderen and Pitkin-the Fulton,Canarsie,and Bay Ridge Lines put on quite a show.
We’d pass by the crowded intersection of what was then Pitkin and Stone Aves.
