The Avalon Sunoco Gas Station is closed. The repair crew is relocating to the end of Avalon Blvd. The 220′ X 110′ parcel is owned by Sun Oil. Not certain of their plans for the site.
Henny’s Restaurant is closing, too. The liquor license was sold to the owner of the Shelter Haven project (corner of 96th and Third Avenue). Best guess is that Henny’s will be torn down and replaced with retail shops on the lower level, with residential condos above. The Shelter Haven parcel has been vacant for many years- so it will be a step forward to see it improved.
The restaurant addition next to Fred’s Liquor Store is still in limbo. We were looking forward to another quality eating establishment along 96th Street- maybe next year.
