Fishtown Closing?

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.

Wow, sad to hear...... Hope it remains a fish store under new management.

I remember being very sad when the Fishtown USA on 34th street with the huge redtail catfish closed down....

I was there Monday and one of the employees told me that they are closing but the manager in charge is planing to reopen the store perhaps retain the name in a location very close by.

RIP Mike... That used to be my favorite spot, haven't been there for years. I'll have to stop by before it closes.

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