Lefkos Out, Warner In!

Well, after gracing the corner of 23rd Avenue and 31st Street for 40 years, Lefkos Pyrgos Bakery is making way for a new Time Warner Cable retail shop, which is also going to be taking over spaces next to Lefkos to accommodate what looks to be a reasonably sized retail store.


The shops  Blooming Company, Lucky 7 Internet Café and Astron Gift Shop spaces along 31st Street, will all be taken over by the new shop.

Some of the things the new store will provide include the usual Time Warner services like internet speed tests, servicing packages, and purchasing of cable boxes among other products.

The store is set for a mid September soft opening.

However, the Astoria community have vocalized their hopes that the Lefkos Pyrgos owners find another suitable location for reopening their doors in Astoria.
