I am writing about the piece of crap at 37-19 College Point Blvd in Flushing.
I can't tell you the actual name of the business because they never updated their signage from the last piece of crap that was there. It's one of those porcelain vase stores. Anyway, I have lived on that very block for almost 30 years.
As you probably already know, parking is disastrous in that neighborhood. But the owners of this business feel they can use the street as they please for THEIR customers. The building was constructed over the driveway of an old business (a long family-run plumbing company that was run out of business like so many others in Flushing) and the curb was never reconstructed. So, the owner still calls it his driveway and late this past summer had my car towed.
When I confronted him, he denied calling to have it towed but it clearly said on my ticket "complaint by owner." Furthermore, they use the closed plumbing business next door as a dump. Literally throwing their garbage outside. I am in the midst of fighting the ticket, have contacted the city, Councilman Peter Koo and even at one point was interviewed by ABC News about the last business who did the same thing. And nothing has changed!
It's so unfair that if you are of a certain race in this neighborhood, you pretty much can do what you want without consequence. I have attached pictures to show the business and the garbage next door. These were taken a few weeks ago and there is actually more garbage there now." - anonymous
