SENATOR JOSEPH P. ADDABBO, JR. STATEMENT ON THE FIRE DESTRUCTION OF O’NEILL’S IN MASPETH
Queens, NY, May 3, 2011 – NYS Senator Joseph P. Addabbo, Jr. (D-Queens), released the following statement today on the fire that destroyed O’Neill’s in Maspeth (in business since 1928):
I was saddened to learn of the fire damage and closure of O’Neill’s. It is my intention, and that of my office staff, to offer our assistance to repair and re-open O’Neill’s as soon as possible in order to restore this historic restaurant and bar, which for decades, had served so many satisfied customers and had been a place of employment for dozens of individuals. I am hopeful that this popular Maspeth icon will be up and running in the very near future.
