Ah, now we have the unholy gestation of what the breeders of New Flushing were producing, as a hellish barracks for the office workers of the new Flushing order has appeared. Note please that the grand old tree has disappeared, as well as any trace of a garden or yard in front. New Flushing's developers, as we know, despise vegetation because they consider green space an unnecessary expense. Of course they fail to realize that it is plants, trees and vegetation that produce the very air that we breathe.
Note, also, that the usual basement parking space seems to be missing, unless it eventually appears on the side of the building. No, in this building, the SUVs will be parked "right in front of the door."
As the New York Times said in a famous editorial after the loss of Penn Station in the swingin' Sixties, we get the architecture we deserve.
And the residents of old Flushing deserve what the developers of New Flushing are bringing us, unless they speak out.
