From the Queens Chronicle:
Forest Hills resident Stephen Melnick looks along the business corridor of Queens Boulevard and sees dead trees and overgrown brush, broken curbs and sidewalks, and litter accumulating along traffic lanes and islands that need repaving.
But Melnick said the boulevard won’t shine without the the city’s commitment and the support of local businesses. He toured some of the more unsightly areas last Thursday morning with Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Forest Hills), Community Board 6 District Manager Frank Gulluscio and Michael Persaud, deputy chief of staff to Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi (D-Forest Hills).
“This corridor can be an engine for economic development,” Melnick said. “It should be warm and welcoming to people who come out here. But it’s not. Ever since they put in parking meters along the islands seven years ago drivers have been using them as a garbage dump...”
“But there’s no money right now, and that’s going to get worse before it gets better,” Gulluscio said. “And you’re talking about a mile and a half.”
Aren't you sick of hearing the City reps and their apologists say there is no money? There always seems to be money for stupid Bloomberg legacy shit. How about calling him out on that once in awhile?
