Thomas M. Quinn & Sons, Inc.

In 1896, Thomas M. Quinn started a funeral livery and undertaking business on Fulton Street in Astoria. Now, Thomas M. Quinn & Sons, Inc. has grown into one of the biggest funeral service providers in New York.
At one point the Quinn name was known as an empire in the business, having seven locations in Flushing and Long Island City but by 1989 all but one were closed and they began an affiliation with Service Corporation International, the largest funeral home consolidator in the nation.
General Manager Kevin Mack said, “The long standing reputation with the neighborhood,” has been a constant from the very beginning at Quinn & Sons.
Mack said Quinn helps people preserve the memory of their loved ones by transcending the generations and finding out what’s important for them.
“We work at exceeding our family’s expectations,” he said. “Our staff provides a sense of sensitivity, compassion and is concerned about the needs of the families.”
Thanks to new technology, Quinn has been able to provide a new service aside from floral arrangements, acknowledgment cards and overall satisfaction and comfort. It has a DVD memorial archive service that allows digital photos to appear on a board with music.
Quinn is part of the Dignity Memorial network in which people can send their loved ones to funeral homes in different states for whatever reason they need to.
According to Mack, Quinn, which is in one of the largest facilities in Queens, is in a 30,000 square foot complex and has six viewing rooms.
They are located at 35-20 Broadway in Long Island City and are open from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven-days-a-week.
