That block has always been shady, particularly in the middle. Anyhow the 36th avenue corridor is not considered prime Astoria and was always low brow even when I was a kid. You can call it the ‘Kaufman Arts District’ or whatever other fashionable left-wing term you desire but its still a crappy area aesthetically and demographically.
