The hell of St. Mary's

St. Mary's found they no longer needed their parking lot across the street after the diocese closed their school and demolished their convent, which was probably the oldest documented building in Woodside. The former parking lot was sold to a developer for $1,810,000 last August.
Observe workers on the scaffolding of these 3-family houses on a Saturday. A search of DOB's site found no special permit for weekend work. There will be six 3-family pieces of crap across the street from the church now. Not that you'd know since the online permit only shows the plan for one house.

Thats the new epidemic
The Catholic Church is loosing billions of $$ to settle lawsuits. Followers are fed up and leaving. They have also been spending hundreds of millions $$ on sheltering and paying lawyers for undocumented criminals who jump our borders to haul brick and stucco at $2 an hour.

Ah yes....the high cost of fondling little boys. The Catholic Church, indeed, has a lot of legal and settlement fees to pay!

That's no excuse for a sellout of faith!

I'm going to convert! Jesus would have cried!

Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

You have to look at adjacent addresses on the DOB site to find all the permits.

I'm glad the parking lot has given way to new housing but it's so ugly, it's depressing. In addition to downzones we really need architectural review too.

What a shame that any bit of land that is available seems to be going to housing.

I presume that children will be living with their parents in all these new housing units - where will they go to school? Are there plans to build more schools?

Schools? Naw, they are immigrants. Not to worry, though.

The newspapers say how much they are well treated by Queens, and the polticians say how much they are well treated by Queens so I guess they are well treated by Queens.

Right?
