A large piece of property that fronts both Roosevelt Avenue and Queens Boulevard has hit the market with an asking price of $14,650,000.

The site, located at 50-01 Queens Blvd., is currently occupied by Boston Market, which has four years left on its lease with no right of renewal. The listing, put out by Greiner-Maltz, says that Boston Market’s corporate office is willing to discuss a potential buyout of its lease.

The property, which is two blocks from the 7 train, is being listed for its development potential. The site is located in an area that has undergone significant development in recent years. The site, for instance, is adjacent to 50-11 Queens Blvd, which has recently seen an eight-story, 60-unit complex go up.

There are several large developments going up in the area at the present. A 17-story mixed-use building is currently being built on the corner of 51st Street and Roosevelt Avenue. Several other developments are also being built near the 52 St – Lincoln Av train station.

Meanwhile, approximately 60 apartments are going up on 52nd Street near Queens Boulevard.

I can’t remember the last time I felt compelled to visit a Boston Market and it seems they’re not trying hard to attract my business, at least compared to some of the other fast-food joints. Considering how many people walk or drive past this site, it has serious potential. I’d like to see it utilized properly in a way that benefits the area.

More expensive food

Might as well make it yourself or get a chicken from the corner grocery for 6.99.


Build it up! More units plus declining population (see: 2020 Census) = lower prices! Elementary! The market approach to this is to build up density, then expand infrastructure around density, so that taxpayers money go further. Right now, the progressive NYS legislature just bans everything, which is a sure way to stagnate and ultimately fail.

More Apartments.

More Inventory, Cheaper rent.

Buy if you can, Any apartment, Anywhere in Sunnyside.

Sick to My Stomach

Ugh. More people, no new infrastructure. That community board chairman, who stepped down when the goal at the heart of his manipulations became clear, really made a mess out of this place.


Exactly what Sunnyside residents were saying before you moved in.

Development is the greatest progress for the city. Stagnation is bad.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
