This week we explored the history of a seemingly ordinary three-story house in Corona where jazz legend Louis Armstrong lived for almost 30 years. Armstrong loved his house and became a local fixture, often rehearsing songs for his neighbors.
Corona and the nearby neighborhoods of Jackson Heights and Elmhurst remain draws for those seeking that neighborly feel—and, relative to Long Island City and Astoria, they’re still somewhat affordable. These listings in the area are all having open houses this weekend.
35-36 76th St., Jackson Heights
This recently renovated two-bedroom, one-bath co-op has a huge open living area, windowed galley kitchen, and spa-like bathroom with stone finishes in the walk-in shower. The elevator building has a private courtyard, a bike room, and a children’s playroom. Asking price: $648,500.
Open house: Sunday, November 12th, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
