Wrong side of the district line

Well, let's see what we have here. Looks like an alteration permit for a couple more floors.
Ah, yes, that's exactly what we have here. Nope, this isn't a new building at all.
And in total context with the other homes. Whoops, what's this? A stop work order for failing to protect adjoining roof. But not for constructing a new building instead of an alteration. Interesting. This is what happens in the non-landmarked sections of Jackson Heights.

Hey could this be another tommy haun property? he has a work order stop on Mazeau street, did he possibly move out of our area and now is hitting your town? Don't understand why Helen Marshall and all council people aren't doing more to stop work like this. YOU GUYS SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF TO ALLOW THIS TO GO ON.....

I wonder how common this problem is in the city.

I wonder why this is never addressed by community preservation conferences or newsletters.

Oh, I get it.

Exactly what happened in Hunters Point on 46 road.

this ain't Brooklyn Heights.

This is the bowels of hell!

As long as there are people like limp wrist Dr. Krass around nothing substantial gets accomplished at historic preservation it at the "Citizen's Emergency Committee To Preserve Preservation", "4 Burros", etc.

Oh....perhaps a few studies
are made and shelved for eternity.

What happened to that big Queens study anyway?

By God...
THERE IS A TWO TIER SYSTEM within the "preservation community".

One set of rules for the "have" neighborhoods and another for the "have-nots".

Queens is definitely seen as a have-not borough in the eyes of the Bloomberg/Tierney team!

Perhaps we should humble ourselves and ask them to become a part of Manhattan or Brooklyn so that we might avail ourselves of deluxe service.

instead of the preservation "lion's" award how about the preservation "sweat-hog" award?
