Note this monstrosity of a 11 century, Choson Dynasty, Buddhist Monastic temple on Bayside Ave (near Parsons Blvd) amid 19th and 20th century Dutch Colonial and early Tudor style homes in northern Flushing.
Architecturally unique yet in contrast to the Fitzgerald-Ginsberg Tudor Mansion (just across the street) the temple qualifies for a mention as just more of QUEENS CRAP and out of place with this neighborhood. Parking? No problem. In April 2007 Pastor Kim, the new owner of the Fitzgerald-Ginsberg estate removed 7 of 12 large antebellum trees from his property to accommodate the parking needs of his flock and the flock of this temple. Enough already! Does the Department of Buildings know that monastic temples are pieced together with logs and without nails for quick dismantling? I'd really check those building codes again and if the owner has been to a shrink lately.
