Advanced Auto Parts is moving to Sunnyside, taking over the 48th Street/Greenpoint Ave. space that was previously occupied by Strauss Auto, according to James Bray, an official at Sunnyside Shines.

The site has been vacant since June when Strauss Auto went into bankruptcy and the store abruptly closed.

Advance Auto has more than 3,500 stores, which sells automotive parts.

There is no word as to when it will move in.

I was hoping that someone would tear this eyesore down and put up something nice…….. shish, some wishful thinking I had.


I’m glad someone’s moving in, the parking lot is taking on an unpleasant tone after dark!


There’s a Jiffy Lube near the Micky D’s on the Blvd that does oil changes.

You can get a $15 coupon on the website and you can a voucher for a free car wash too.

For years I have been satisfied using the Great Bear on the northside of Queens Blvd I beleive on 53rd street.

I hope it’s better that Auto Barn further down on Queens Blvd. It was very convenient having a good auto store in the area. It would be nice if they have a garage also, but who knows.
