That last image looks like the senior warehouse the Presbyterian Church in Astoria want to build to insure that their church has money to pay salaries of higher ups - a 9 or 12 block busting monster towering over 3 story buildings.

Millions of dollars of HUD going into it, we understand.

Wonderful how public taxpayer money can find its way in a private chruch project.

When mentioned on a certain local blog, the denizens wondered what the issue was - how can someone be against senior citizens?

Typical Astoria.

I am just shot through with revulsion about the horrible, awful, terrible excretions that pass as erections to the uncaring architects.

What, is public money from HUD going into a private church?!?!

Is this true?

Can someone from Curbed or the media look into this?!?!?
