Steve Christie is almost gone. The Buffalo Bills kicker from 1992 through 2000 has adorned the side of the AM&A’s Department Store building in an ArtVoice ad in what has become a running tribute to the building’s emptiness. It’s no longer as the recent wind storm has nearly ripped Mr. Christie from the south façade.
Lanco H & L purchased the property in late November for $2.755 million from New Horizon Acquisitions. The Queens-based buyer is said to be planning to redevelop the site into a mix of residential, hotel, and retail space.
