Another from K.W.:
I shot this picture of a grand old building at Sanford Avenue and 161st, East Flushing (a nexus for Crappenfest activities of late). The first picture I did when they were beginning to strip off the siding in anticipation of the big raze. The previous owners had let the place run down in recent years but in the right hands it had possibilities.
The second picture shows the grand old tree in front of the property that remained there, for a time, after it had been torn down. Not only do we have more and more ugly buildings to look at, but we are quickly losing all of our green spaces, which were preserved by previous generations who were proud to have their property host grass, trees, flowers, birds and other such friendly critters.
