Normandeau Newswire – Queensbridge Houses is the largest public housing project in North America.
A diversity of educational levels and accomplishments are to be found.
Recently, a Queensbridge houses tenant who had not even finished high school, was flabbergasted when he saw a collection of “education aid” signs in Queensbridge's Jacob Riis Community Center that had grammatical errors.
That same tenant was shocked over the weekend to find that the Queensbridge Community had now misspelled the name “Queensbridge” on a very large banner approximately twenty feet wide by three feet high.
There it hangs, that big banner, on the front of Queensbridge's Jacob Riis Community Center on 41st Avenue, between 10th Street and 12th Street in Long island City.
Surely, this final blow to education can only reinforce the thought amongst Queensbridge children that the best way to combat literacy in the projects is just to keep plugging along, creating one “misteak” at a time.
