From the Daily News:
Several historic sites in Queens could miss out on thousands of dollars in preservation funds because they are attracting few votes in an on-line contest.
The Partners in Preservation program selected 40 sites across the five boroughs to vie for $3 million in grants. The top four vote-getters get their projects fully funded and several of the runners-up will divvy up the rest.
But none of the five Queens sites has made it into the top ten since voting started on April 26.
Why is this group putting money toward things that have already been saved and are funded from other sources?
