Subway Store on Queens Blvd to Split in Two, Building Sells for $3.45 million


Dec. 3, 2015 By Christian Murray

The space occupied by Subway Restaurant on the corner of 44th and Queens Blvd (north) is being split into two.

Subway will continue to occupy half of the 43-19 Queens Blvd ground floor space with the other half being walled off to become a lottery/convenience store. The convenience store is expected to open early January.

The restaurant opened on Queens Blvd in 2010 and its franchise owners also included a bodega-like “express grocery” at the time.

The site has been occupied by several bodega owners over the years. Prior to 2010, it was rented by Welcome Mart, a small grocery store.

The building that houses Subway, the upstairs apartments and the stores around the corner—such as the hair salon and the former real estate office—sold on Sept. 8 for $3.45 million to an entity registered in Flushing by the name of 43-19 Sunnyside LLC.

There is no sign of impending development. The new owner has not filed for permits with the Department of Buildings.

Can’t they come up with something other than a convenience store ? We already have one on 45th st north side and one on 46th street south side. How many lottery places do we need?


I don’t know how there going to make it split into two spaces. It will be so small, I think it’s perfect the way it is to be honest. Just another reason to spend money to the city…
