Last Thursday, a consignment/thrift shop opened its doors on Skillman Avenue.

The shop, called Via Classic Emporium, is located at 48-06 Skillman Ave. (at 48th Street), across the street from Stray Vintage and Sea Kiss Boutique.

Proprietors Adriana and Victor Alvarez, a brother and sister team hailing  from Ecuador, sell an eclectic mix of collectible items such as china patterns, silverware, magazines,  furniture,  jewelry and  apparel. Selected apparel will also be sold on a consignment basis.

The Alvarez pair was attracted to the neighborhood by its beauty and cultural richness.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
