June 21, 2016 Staff Report
Station LIC, the bar/restaurant located at 10-37 Jackson Avenue has closed, according to a letter written by the owner placed on the establishment’s front door.
Owner Gregory Okshteyn, who opened the railroad-themed establishment in November 2014, wrote a note to his customers announcing the news and thanked them for their support.
“Dear Friends and Neighbors, We regret to inform you that Station LIC is closed until further notice. For the last 19 months you have been supportative, generous, patient and kind….Thanks for the memories.”
The note also indicates that the establishment might reopen at a future time but with a whole new concept.
The restaurant was designed by Okshteyn, who took a battered building that had been empty for more than a decade, and carefully redesigned the triangular-shaped building into what now looks like a station house.
The establishment sits on top of the Vernon Blvd/Jackson Avenue subway station.
