Time Warner Cable Store To Host Grand Opening Thursday


Nov. 10, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

The new Time Warner Cable store located at the former Lefkos Pyrgos bakery will host a grand opening on Thursday, according to a spokesperson.

The Time Warner Cable retail store sits at 31-01 23rd Ave. It absorbed a nearly 4,000-square-foot space formerly occupied by Lefkos Pyrgos as well as the Blooming Company, Lucky 7 Internet Café and Astron Gift Shop.

Lefkos Pyrgos, a Greek café and bakery, sat at 23rd Avenue and 31st Street for nearly 40 years. Owners have since relocated to 33-02 Ditmars Blvd.

The Astoria location is Time Warner Cable’s second store in Queens; another opened in Flushing in August, according to a press release from the time. The grand opening follows a soft-open period that started in early October, spokesperson Ziggy Chau said.

Thursday’s event will also feature an announcement regarding Time Warner Cable’s partnership with the Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens to open a “TWC Learning Lab” – a computer and technology center – at the club, 21-12 30th Rd., Chau said.

The grand opening is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.

I plan on getting there sometime between the afternoon hours of 3 to 5; then again I may not show up at all, and send a bill for a crappy time, anyway.


Foot traffic, car traffic and parking is even worse in that area now! I can imagine what that area will be like when the Medical Building opens up!

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.

Astoria welcomes ‘Our House’: A new co-working and community space

Apr. 11, 2024 By Allison Kridle

If you were to ask a Queens resident what’s one thing they want more of, they will likely reply: Space. For Astorians, many crave a place to gather, work, create, and meet neighbors or somewhere that feels like home where they can be productive all in one. Astoria business owners Anna Budinger, Alexandra Wolkoff and Kayli Kunkel saw this void and created Our House, “Astoria’s living room.”
