LOST IN ASTORIA: Ellie June

September 25, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11106, Astoria, Astoria Queens 

While quite a stretch I am posting this anyway. Why, you ask? Because anyone who would go to this amount of trouble to recover a lost pet deserves to have a leg (or would that be tail or whisker?) up! I found the above flier at the intersection of 31st Street and Broadway. If you have seen Ellie June or know of her whereabouts please contact her very concerned “people” at the above-listed telephone number. Thanks!

Astoria Photo Du Jour: Are You Experienced?

Where do you start with this? Yes, it is pretty sexist for starters. But quite frankly yours truly is plenty content to chuckle at this establishment’s rather odd (or perhaps spot on?) ad copy. If you are an “experienced girl” who would like to make juice for pay get your resume and/or CV in order and head down to Y & Y Green. Oh yeah: don’t tell them Miss Heather sent you!

New York Shitty Photo Du Jour: Collect All Ten!

September 25, 2010 ·
Filed under: 11110, Astoria, Astoria Queens 

After work I knocked around Astoria a bit with my buddy carnade. That is where we found this, one of the most fascinating “gumball” machines I have encountered in a very, VERY long time. There’s no indication who patron saint #10 is. I’m guessing he (or she) is a special prize. Yours truly tried her luck and got St. Christopher. Carnade got St. Francis. We made a trade and are very pleased with our mutual 50 cent investments!

Quicklink: Pistilli’s House Of Horrors

I was recently contacted by a reporter from the New York Daily News. She was interested in writing a story about Pistilli Realty (which as some of you know own and manage the Astral Apartments). As some of you can probably imagine, I had a few things to say about them. Regrettably they did not make it to print. However, this story is definitely worth a read. Check it out!

Quicklink: The Truth About Pistilli Riverview East

June 15, 2010 ·
Filed under: Astoria, Queens 

(Or: keep your expectations low & you’ll always be satisfied)

This site was brought to my attention via the New York Shitty inbox and courtesy of someone who calls himself (or herself) “Pistilli’s Least Favorite Tenant”. What can you expect from TTAPRE, you ask? Well, the “About” page pretty much says it all:

I moved into Pistilli Riverview East in Astoria on October 20, 2009. My apartment began leaking four days later on October 24, 2009. My apartment still leaks to this day. My landlord, Parkview Building Associates, LLC. is operated by Pistilli Realty. The way they manage this building is despicable and unacceptable. I’m not griping about cheap appliances or cabinetry. Those things are what they are and I willingly and knowingly entered into my lease having seen the cheap appliances and cabinetry. I did not knowingly and willingly enter into my lease to live in an apartment that constantly and persistently leaks and is covered in toxic black mold.

At a mere two posts long this blog sports moldering and disintegrating ceilings (as seen at left), some kind brown ooze gracing the window sills of the laundry room and allegations that the doorman is refusing admittance to census workers. One can only imagine what will happen next. Check it out!
