The Capitol One Bank branch located at 164th Street and 69th Avenue in Fresh Meadows will be closing its doors for good on Saturday, October 6. A bank has been at this location for more than 35 years, first as Reliance Federal, then North Fork, and finally Capitol One.
There are so many people who have banked at this location, since it is right across the street from the Electchester apartment complex. Many of these people are elderly or disabled, and now will have to go to the Capitol One Branch at Parsons Blvd. and Jewel Ave., the other Fresh Meadows branch on 188th Street, or the branch located in Kew Gardens.
This is going to cause a lot of unnecessary physical stress for a lot of those people.
There is no logical reason for this branch to be closed. We are going to be very sorry, and we wish all of its employees the very best.
