One of the oldest buildings in the neighborhood is in the process of demolition.

70-28 73rd Place, near Central and Edsall avenues, was listed under Community Board 5’s demolition notices.

CB5 chairman Vinny Arcuri remarked that this building is one of Glendale’s oldest.

In April, the Department of Buildings issued a full vacate order due to partial roof collapse. The shaking and vibrating had affected the structure’s stability.

The building also has four DOB violations, according to the property’s profile, for failure to certify corrections for Class 1 Violations.

Alleviating flooding on Edsall Avenue is among board’s top priorities

Edsall Avenue has been prone to flooding every time there’s heavy rain in the area.

Residents have complained for years about this type of flooding.

Hopefully, help is on the way.

Community Board 5 recently released its list of top capital priorities for Fiscal Year 2020.

Reconstructing the sewer lines on Edsall Avenue from 71st Place to 73rd Place in the third highest project, as rated by CB5 members.

The first two priorities are also related to fixing sewer problems in the CB5 area.

There have been several sewer projects in nearby neighborhoods in recent years, including Calamus Avenue in Maspeth and Penelope Avenue in Middle Village.

We hope Edsall Avenue in Glendale is next on that list because the project is desperately needed.

Bill to create zip code for Glendale passes House

Once again the U.S. House of Representatives has passed a measure to give Glendale its own zip code.

But without Senate action, it’s doomed to fail like it did in 2016.

Congresswoman Grace Meng has been spearheading the effort, which is part of a bipartisan bill requiring the Postal Service to create new zip codes across the country.

Glendale residents have long suffered mail service-related problems because they share the 11385 zip code with Ridgewood.
