Astoria's saddest house, meet Astoria's newest office building. Yep, it turns out the big thing on Newtown Avenue near 31st Street that put the squeeze on its oddly placed neighbor was indeed built for commercial purposes, and according to a Curbed Photo Pool contributor the building is finished and now renting. Our tipster also dryly notes, "It stands in stark contrast to the house next door." You could say that. In fact, we already have, but for some reason all the text from that old post has been erased. Even our servers want nothing to do with this thing!
