The former Family Court House on Parsons Blvd. is currently undergoing demolition and Jamaica's architectural marvel has been tossed to the side to make room for more plain and boring glass and steel. It is very apparent that the grandiose Jamaica Plan is intended to move Jamaica into the future by eliminating all vestiges of classical Queens history. With big money interests and the little momentum that CB 12 has shown for putting up a fight and preserving its community, its no wonder that this is occurring. Remember Penn Station. Where are the preservationists?
