Chase Closing One of its Sunnyside Branches

Chase Bank is closing its 47-11 Queens Blvd. branch Nov. 9 (Google)

Aug. 24, 2020 Staff Report

One of the two Chase bank branches on Queens Boulevard in Sunnyside is permanently closing.

Chase is shutting down its 47-11 Queens Blvd branch on Nov. 9, the company said. It has notified its customers and is redirecting them to its 46-10 Queens Blvd branch.

Sunnyside has had two Chase branches since the banking giant acquired Washington Mutual during the 2008 banking crisis. The 46-10 Queens Blvd branch—which was a Washington Mutual– was converted to a Chase in 2009.

Chase has closed a number of branches—on a temporary basis– during the COVID-19. Many others have been operating with shorter hours.

The bank has not said how many banks will remain closed permanently.

Shame

It’s a shame because this one is the good one. The other one across the street is way too close to public and has gotten robbed few times in last 5 years or so.

46-10 Branch could use a clean-up. There’s a bus stop outside and the entrance is always filled with trash. The ATM area is a mess with poor lighting. Fix it up Chase!!

With so many banks being emptied out due to people moving away from the area i am not surprised. A lot of the banks also had trouble keeping up with withdrawals due to the stimulus check. Few landlords are also depositing because so many tenants are not paying rent. If you’re unemployed you have to practically empty your bank account to qualify for free healthcare SNAP and discounted utilities.

If NY initiated a baby bond which gives 1000 dollars to newborns of low income families when they turn 18 like NJ more banks would stay open. There are a lot of low income families in Queens and undocumented immigrants living in poverty.

Just a result of many people working from home and workers refusing to work in Queens aka. Elmhurst hospital.

Chase credit card services lowered my credit limit significantly after i been with them for over 20 yrs and never missed a payment. Its very unfair and there is not much you can do about it.

It was my bank for many years. Sorry to see them close.

Maybe they were tired of being robbed and chasing homeless guys out of the ATM area.

Boooooo! The 47-11 branch is smaller than the branch across queens blvd but it is much better run. The former Wash Mut branch is a training branch and they are SLOW. Chase needs both branches

I never understood why there were two branches of the same bank within sight of each other.

Can you put a Wells Fargo in this one’s place???

The letter went out about a week ago. That’s the branch that was robbed by bank robber Willie Sutton. The space Keyfood expanded into on 46th Street and Greenpoint Ave was also a Chase Manhattan Bank. It has a cool walk of glazed blue bricks.
