Sunnyside store supports area

It is perhaps doubly appropriate that the Sunnyside shop run by neighborhood residents Dan and Tara Glasser is called Stray Vintage. They named it after a song by one of their favorite bands, Calexico, but the idea of opening a vintage clothing and accessories store was a sort of stray idea reached while wandering around Sunnyside.

Store donations help animals

Buy a short sale home

Lately, we have heard the term “short sale” come up in Queens. A short sale occurs when a bank is willing to take less than what it is owed. For example, a buyer purchases a home for $500,000 and can no longer pay the mortgage. The homeowner tries but fails to work out the late payments with the bank. A short sale becomes the only realistic option to get the buyer out of the home without having to go through foreclose proceedings. The home is put on the market at a reduced price. Comment
