Is Richmond Hill Republican Club a goner?


A landmarked Richmond Hill building riddled with uncertainty since 2001 will have a new future, but this hasn’t eased the worries of those trying to preserve it.

What remains of the Richmond Hill Republican Club House, a 100-year-old structure that sits on Lefferts Boulevard facing the Richmond Hill Library, are four walls.


Clubhouse revamp causes concern

After a stop-work order was placed on the demolition on Friday, alarm bells went off for several community residents, who feared the new owner would try to underhandedly demolish the building.

Construction taking place next door to the club house, formerly the Simonson Funeral Home, caused the old building to shake — likely a result of the contractor’s failure to properly shore up the foundation. Some community members speculated that this was done intentionally, at the request of the landmarked building’s new owner, so that the structure would come down and the property’s value would go up.

Yusupov denied this and said he plans to move forward with renovation work as soon as permitted.

Now isn't this just poetic justice?

Where have the Republicans been on overdevelopment and building violations, along with the corruption of DOB?

To get a hint of an answer, see EXHIBIT 1, Como's MacMansion just a block or so from his Republican predecessor, the savage sexual deviate pervert (confessed in his plea bargain) Gallagher.

What did Maltese - who found and cultivated both Stupid Como and Pervert Gallagher - ever do about eliminating overdevelopment, building violations and a corrupt DOB?

Did you say NOTHING? You win! No Republican has acted against those who give money to the party or the individuals.

What's the prize? You can VOTE the morons out in November.

Does that mean you are stuck with Crowley? No. You can vote for Ober for Council.

To replace Maltese, you can vote for Addabbo or Baldeo. As long as Maltese goes, you're better off.

As for Gallagher, he practiced sexual perversion and assault, then joined with DA Brown to pervert justice. So, Pervert Gallagher is gone - forever. Now you're left with his fellow attacker of Grandmothers (he joined Gallagher in a second assault of Gallagher's victim by letting Pervert Gallagher walk free of any punishment). When DA Brown next appears on any ballot in 2011, dump him. Remember, Brown is a rapist, too; he raped justice with his freeing of pervert Gallagher.

Then, if the replacement fails, toss him, too.

You can do this. You can be in control.

You can do this? No you can't - you failed miserably in the recent special election. What makes you think you can do it now?

Charles Ober got 700 or so votes. Dizzy Lizzy got within 38 of Como. She's going to run against Como in November.

God bless District 30!

Taxpayer why are you trying to muddle their minds(?) with facts?

Question is from a informed voter with no connections to anyone.

Only losers believe they can't control events.

Woooo! How delicately sensitive you failed politicians are.

Is this a Maltese lackey? Or a Como lackey? How can anyone tell the difference?
