Somebody Please Buy the First German Sport Club and Make it a Bar!


    Why has no one bought the First German Sport Club at 60-60 Metropolitan Avenue? Even if there aren’t a too many hipsters in the immediate area, the retro facade is so cool that we can see bearded types from Bushwick and broader Ridgewood making the trip. Or could the club’s mobster history be holding it back? In 2005, the Queens District Attorney brought charges against 17 members of the Genovese and Bonano crime families for running numbers out of this and two other locations. That didn’t stop the current owner from picking it up for $350,000 back in 2009. The current broker is Queens Central Realty at 718-417-0700. GMAP
