A two story, two family home built in 1915 is slated to be demolished in way of a seven story mixed-use building at 33-10 38th Avenue, down near Astoria Seafood and the Paper Factory Hotel. The building will have 20, most likely rental apartments, and some sort of community facility, New York YIMBY reported recently.
The existing place seems to be typical of the smaller homes in semi-industrial Dutch Kills down by Northern Boulevard. The site is a couple blocks from 36-35 35th Street, where DMNDR is setting up its ARC music space. And it’s also a couple blocks from Melrose Ballroom, where on a recent Saturday night a man in a ghostbusters hat allegedly shot at two people, each in the leg, than fled in an SUV.
