With demolition looming, the last remnants of the famed Joe Abbracciamento Restaurant were removed from its former location at 62-92 Woodhaven Blvd. last Friday morning.

Doors, barstools, wooden shelves and other items were piled on top of each other along the sidewalk, with the objects being loaded one-by-one into the back of a large truck by two workers.

The restaurant closed on March 2 and the building was sold for $9 million to the Criterion Group, an Astoria-based realty firm, in April.

The entire building, which contained a handful of now-relocated small businesses, is set to be demolished in the fall, making way for the construction of a seven-story, 119-unit apartment building on the property.

Welcome to the discussion.
