The Daily News has picked up on the story of the arboricide at the Fitzgerald-Ginsburg mansion in Flushing:
Protesters' arbor grudge
Eugene Kelty, chairman of Community Board 7, said that the commission designated the entirety of the site purchased by Kim - not just the mansion. "They designated the site. They did not say just the building. That means the driveways, the trees and everything else that goes with it and that is what we are contending," said Kelty. The protestors also contend that the owner illegally put up a 6-foot-tall red stockade fence along the property perimeter.
