Country Club Civic Association

Developer Les Lerner’s corporation has requested a variance to allow construction of a 9,996 sq ft office building on the interior lot behind 1464 Astor Avenue. The lot has no frontage on any city street. It is completely surrounded by lots with one and two family private homes that do have frontage on the four city streets (Astor Avenue, Eastchester Road, Pelham Parkway and Fenton Avenue) that surround those lots. They plan to have access to the interior lot through the 1464 Astor Avenue lot which they also own because it does have frontage on a city street. Comment.

Our guest speakers will be Venecia Fernandez from New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s office who will talk to us about unclaimed funds and she will also have a computer available to check to see if any of us are entitled to some money we forgot about...maybe in a bank or a depost on something we never collected. You may leave the meeting rich! Comment.

They are a part of our morning ritual, a pleasant few seconds to greet your neighbors and ease into the day. Not so for the patrons of Bronx establishments such as Lizzie’s on Layton Avenue. Comment.
