Prima Donna Closing 82nd St Location


Feb. 22, 2016 By Michael Florio

A popular women’s boutique will close its doors this weekend.

Prima Donna, located at 37-47 82 St., will shutter for good on Saturday, according to a store manager who did not wish to disclose his name.

The store, which sells women’s jewelry and accessories such as shoes, handbags, scarves, necklaces, earrings and bracelets, is currently having a going out of business sale. Certain items, such as necklaces and earrings, have been marked down to $1 or $2.

Prima Donna previously also had a store located at 80-27 37th Ave., which closed last year. The space is now occupied by a Caffe Bene.

The owner decided to close that store due to its close proximity to the 82nd Street location, according to the store manager.

A third Prima Donna location, located on Austin Street in Forest Hills, is also going out of business. That store will close on March 6, according to an employee with that location.

Prima Donna also owns stores at 29-24 Ditmars Blvd., 31-39 Steinway St. and 37-64 Junction Blvd., according to its website.

A store employee with the Ditmars Boulevard location said that store is also holding sales, but its future has yet to be determined.

Calls to the Steinway Street and Junction Boulevard locations were not answered.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
