Now if government officials have the hard working, tax paying public at heart (as we are often told), they should stop the inappropriate overbuilding in this city, especially here in Queens. We are sick of developers and their allies being allowed to threaten property owners and to steal homes and our hopes for some contentment in these very troubled times...Remember, (those of you who want to keep expanding the population and the infrastructures here inordinately), when a lifeboat is full, one more can destroy all. Stop trying to sink our little community ships.
Neighbor to Neighbor: Boro needs protection from overdevelopment
We know that there is a lack of affordable housing in New York City. It should be evident that many illegals-and others-are living under conditions that are at best sub-standard. Every once in awhile we hear of a loss of life in a fire that broke out in a building housing far too many people in too many chopped-up rooms.
I Sit And Look Out: Queens firms profiteer on illegal immigrants
They have managed to suck out the charm of the neighborhood. I wonder if there is anything in the zoning laws to stop this carnage of greenery and beauty.
Forest Hills area denuded
To me, cutting the trees down to prevent leaves from falling on the tracks is like detonating an atomic bomb to kill a few flies. Total overkill! And who is to say that the wind will not blow leaves from other nearby trees onto the tracks? Will the railroad try to destroy these trees as well? And in order to install security fencing, would not pruning existing trees be adequate? Why the need to destroy so many trees? The railroad should be considering other viable alternatives to address their issues.
