Like new leaves in an early spring, businesses along 48th Avenue west of Bell Boulevard in Bayside are slowly coming back to life following the near completion of a sewer project by the city Department of Design and Construction that started in December 1998.
Among them is a reincarnated laundromat with a second lease on life, whose previous owner was forced to close because of the sewer work.
Formerly Bell Laundry, the laundromat now called 48th Avenue Laundry Service Corp. reopened Nov. 1. It is at 212-05 48th Ave. between 212th and 213th streets.
Owner Francis Akujuo has been running the business for nearly two months now.
