Shops Take Hit After JetBlue Departure: Report

Business owners on Queens Boulevard in Forest Hills are already feeling the loss of one of their biggest neighbors, the Daily News reported on Sunday.

According to the paper, since JetBlue moved its nearly 1,000 employees to offices in Long Island City last month, local shops in the area of the Forest Hills Tower are starting to notice a big dip in sales.

The owner of one mini-mart on the shopping strip told the Daily News he has already been forced to start covering his operating costs out of pocket.

ConEd will also soon move a smaller group of employees out of the same office building that houses the office of City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, the paper said.
