Capitol One is going to close yet another one of its branches in Fresh Meadows at the end of September.
There are many senior citizens and others who depend on the Parsons Boulevard branch in Electchester and Pomonok. It makes absolutely no sense to close it.
The nearest branches will now be on Main Street, where there is no parking lot, and on 188th Street in Fresh Meadows, which does have ample parking but is much further away.
Seniors and the disabled who do not drive will now have to struggle to take public transportation to either one of these locations, causing added aggravation and stress.
The people who make these decisions obviously do not care that closing this and other branches will create problems for the customers who have done their banking there.
