Queensboro Hill was once a beautiful suburb of Flushing, with lush lawns and views of the city. Gradually, crappification is reaching the neighborhood.
The Silver Pond Seafood Restaurant, a Chinese diner, has closed and slated to be replaced with apartments on a very crowded intersection of Booth Memorial Avenue and Main Street.
Across the street from the former Chinese diner, a residential house has a billboard promoting accident lawyers, and a good intersection for such an ad. Doesn't this billboard need a permit?
Across the Street, the Booth Memorial Hospital (or whatever its new name) is expanding. Having already built one parking lot on Kissena Corridor Park, its encroachment into the park is continuing. Forget about parks expansion and a million new trees, cars need parking!
Finally, a growing industry in the neighborhood is can collecting. Just look at the wealth these old ladies have accumulated!
Their shopping carts are overflowing with other people's cans! Now that's a living! Just a few more cans, and they'll be able to afford a unit in the condo being built on the site of the Chinese diner!
