Astoria Flea & Food market extended for another 10 weeks


June 24, 2014 By Christian Murray

The Astoria Flea & Food, which launched this spring in the outdoor movie lot at Kaufman Astoria Studios, was only supposed to be on for eight consecutive Sundays.

However, given its success the flea & food market has been extended another 10 Sundays, through Labor Day weekend (August 31), according to owner Joshua Schneps, of Schneps Communications.

“We have had great attendance, with people coming from within the community and from outside,” Schneps said. He said the Astoria Flea & Food has about 85 vendors, and that the quality of those vendors has helped bring in strong crowds.

The market features food vendors, antiques, collectibles, arts and fashion.

The Astoria Flea & Food takes place at Kaufman Astoria’s backlot on 36th Street between 34th and 35th Avenues from 10 am through 6pm on Sundays.

Schneps also runs the LIC Flea & Food in Hunters Point, which he established in 2013.

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.
