Schleicher tenants testify at LPC

From NY1:

Seven College Point families have been fighting to be allowed back into their homes for nearly eight months, while their building is considered for landmark status.

Wow! Look at all that hi-tech stuff. What are the doing - tracking bombers from Russia?

Sure, explains why they can't see the historic building ripped down in the next block.

When it comes to spending on its bureaucrats, the City has no shame.

It's a powerpoint presentation you schmucks. They use them in high schools!

The overhead projection equipment and the desk mics are what I was referring to, not the powerpoint.

LPC is not bad .... if you live in the Upper West Side.

Why doesn't someone profile landmark districts.

The the real world the rest of us live in.

Then explain why poor brownskinned people are supporting rich white people?

Tell me about it! And while you're at it, figure out why rich white people are paying for all those services (like schools, mass transit, police) which they don't use.

You had better hope that they learned their lessons well in school when you are in a hospital, go to a restuarant, hire a repairman - or consult with an attorney or accountant or lawyer.

As to transit and police, I find it hard to believe that you find them no use, or you are so afaid to go out that you might have well be in Idaho.

The important part is your reaction. Lets have Crappy revisit this again and again.

Seems to have touched a raw nerve.

Good!

Why? Because there are two sets of criteria for landmark designation.

1. A rich upper middle class white communtiy.

2. jim crow for us 'niggas'.

yet everyone pays for a program that most of us will never enjoy.

Do a survay of designated areas. No way in hell do they resemble the real New York that is footing the bill.

The law should be stuck from the books and 95% of the city would not tremble. Why should we care about 5% who have never given the slightest indication the rest of us are getting a raw deal?
