Astoria Billiards Club, located at 35-21 30th Ave, is up for sale, just one month after being shut down- temporarily–by court order.

The establishment was closed after the police conducted a raid in June and alleged that gambling had been taking place on the premises.

While the owner did not comment on the closure, she did confirm that the business was for sale for $250,000.

The owner has run the establishment since 2004, which offers billiards, pool, snooker, ping pong, air hockey, chess and backgammon.

The club, which occupies the basement space, typically operates from 11 am to 3 am seven days a week. It offers beer/wine and a bite to eat.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
