Western Beef about to get the chop


Aug. 6, 2013 By Christian Murray

A well known Steinway Street beef store is expected to close, as developers are likely buy the property.

The site, where Western Beef is located, is on the market for $17 million and is likely to be snapped up by developers. The property, which will be delivered vacant, includes the beef store, its parking lot, as well as a neighboring car wash. The property is located at 3620 Steinway St and is more than 1 acre in size.

This section of Steinway Street, which borders Northern Blvd., has yet to be developed for residential purposes. “It’s the next extension of the Long Island City-Astoria area and people are interested to see how it develops,” said Matt Dzbanek, a broker for cpexre.

The brokers are marketing the property as ideal for mixed use development. They claim that as many as 85 apartment units can be built on site, in addition to ground-floor retail.

I used to do shopping at this supermarket with my grandmother for years and years until she was killed at a nursing home in the Bronx, NY by heartless criminals. She was placed in a cold room with no heat and she developed pneumonia. Their own radiologist recommended follow up and they did not even tell me what was going on. These criminals are all over and when they are caught they start jumping around to other places knowing that their ” lawyers ” will represent them and protect them. Only a fool would believe that a nursing home will help them protect their parents and grandparents. Everything is based on money. As for this supermarket, it is sad to see it go because of the memories. The prices were very decent compared to those in Manhattan and other places. Avarice is taking over Astoria as expected.


This is wAS A GOOD storento shop in we dont need more apts in astoria. It is getting to crowded and roo expensie. Just greed. I have beeen living in astoria over 40 years enough already


Omgosh! Just thinking how this place is pretty miserable and I would be Ok with it leaving. Although, not many grocery options in the immediate area so it will be less convenient…
