A Boost Mobile store opened Monday on Greenpoint Avenue in the former location of H & J Carrier.

The Boost store, located at 45-11 Greenpoint Avenue, is currently offering consumers cellphone deals such as unlimited data, talk and text for $50 per month.

Boost takes over from H & J which sold trinkets, children’s clothes and bubble tea. H & J closed in August and relocated to Forest Hills.

How are they allowed to have giant speakers and amplifier on the sidewalk and a DJ blasting music and screaming for the microphone? Yeah it’s not late at night but is the starving all the residents in the neighborhood and some of us businesses.


Except that people walking down the street have to listen to the blaring music, and blocking the sidewalk.


I walked by today and they were blasting rap music with someone playing DJ at 10am really?
So stupid.


I’m usually very excited about new businesses opening in empty storefronts, but this is a total bust. So many lackluster franchises which don’t benefit our community. The late Radioshack as well as Sprint, MetroPCS, T-Mobile, now Boost Mobile.

Oh god….I think I’m changing. Am I becoming another generic dissatisfied complaint poster?
