I saw a post on the Bayside Queen Facebook group that Fishtown is closing. I know there have been mixed reviews of this place over the years, but growing up in Bayside, that place was magical when I was kid, and I have been going there for almost 40+ years. I have bought many fish there over the years, with no issues. I think the owner "Mike" recently passed away. I thought his daughters were going to take it over.

I personally feel a big loss, even from a memories perspective.

If it's true it's sad to know that Mike passed away. From what some people told me his daughter wasn't that interested in the business. I would think that instead of closing the business they would probably just sell the store, as it's had a number of different owners over the years.

Just spoke to the manager Noel, and he told me that they are relocating! They will stay open

My memories of Fishtown USA are from a LONG time ago when they had a location in Manhattan on 33rd Street and 3rd Avenue. It was the absolute best place in the 80's and I used to go as often as possible. The employees were always stuck up except for what I assume was the owner or manager that looked like James Edward Olmos. I don't remember his name, but he was always a nice guy.
