Why are balconies allowed? They are the ugliest, useless features of all new homes. These homes are strikingly bad.

Fresh Meadows was and some parts still are a great neighborhood. I fear what has happened to western queens is quickly creeping eastward and will engulf what is left of the great 'hoods' of bayside, little neck, douglaston etc..

Unfortunately it is definitely heading east, although reinforcement of zoning limits have somewhat helped. At first you'd always think it was happening only on some other blocks, and there were a number of macMansion attempts that did squeak through.

My parents live in a nice, quiet, tree filled part of Bayside and have a neighbor who recently completed a home expansion. Two story extension, reducing their yard, cutting down all their trees. They also added a balcony - in a solid year and a half, they have never, ever been spotted out on the balcony. It blocks sunlight and sky from their neighbors on either side, and unfortunately, the construction was all done as cheaply as possible, so they have completely horrible wavy siding on the house now.

You guys still want to leave western Queens out of the loop, what they learn by abusing us (while you look the other way) they will visit upon you soon.

Of course balconies serve a purpose. You can hang your wash over the railings and store your junk on them. It's like an outdoor closet.

Balconies are useful... I don't let guests smoke in my apartment, so they smoke on the balcony.

I also prefer hanging my clothes in the sun on the balcony instead of using the dryer. There's nothing wrong with hanging your laundry.

well there is when it's in front of your house and the whole neighborhood has to look at your wash.

Please don't air your dirty laundry in public. Thank you.
