March 17, Staff Report
A gourmet burger joint located on the border of Sunnyside and Long Island City appears to have closed.
Williamsburger, which opened in 2013 at 36-17 Greenpoint Ave. (near 50th Avenue), is now empty, with its tables, chairs and all other contents gone. The mirrors have come off the wall and the floors appear to have been swept.
The owner of Williamsburger could not be reached for comment, as the number to the restaurant is no longer in service.
Williamsburger, which had a loyal following, operated in a section of the neighborhood that was not known for dining and entertainment. The restaurant was located on the periphery of a manufacturing area, and in the vicinity of St. Raphaels Church.
The establishment was known for offering quality burgers, hot dogs and milkshakes in a laid back and comfortable atmosphere.
