The site goes block-through from 34th to 33rd street between 37th and 38th avenue. The property is right near the 36th St M and R subway and one block over from the Paper Factory Hotel. It was just revealed last week that Gal Sela, owner of the Paper Factory Hotel, and Mr. Michael Cohen, owner of the Silver Star Motors are building a mixed-use building next door at 37-14 36th Street.
