Klein Farm still in the wrong hands
From the Times Ledger:
Klein Farm, one of the last family-owned, working farms in Queens until 2001, is still owned by a company connected to the notorious developer Tommy Huang despite reports several years ago that the firm was preparing to sell the property.
The story last left off with Huang trying to sell the property and ordering a day-care center that was previously operating there to vacate in 2009.
But it appears that never happened, leaving Audrey Realty’s intentions for the farm a question mark.
“Nothing’s going to happen [there] while I’m the city councilman,” Councilman Mark Weprin (D-Oakland Gardens) said recently, “unless it’s what the community wants.”
He said the owner has been quiet in recent years and Klein Farm seems to have fallen off the radar, but he remains committed to protecting the property should it come into question in the future.
Phone calls to Henry Huang were not returned.
