Queens Crap profiled by real estate website

From The Real Deal:

Queens Crap
(queenscrap.blogspot.com)
Neighborhood: Queens
Founded: 2006

Queens Crap chronicles the daily frustrations of residents, especially when it comes to real estate — the blog’s logo proclaims its focus on the “overdevelopment and ‘tweeding’ of a borough.”

The blog’s unpaid and anonymous founder told TRD that the site focuses on “what many would consider to be small issues, but are big issues to those affected by them, like missing lane markers on a repaved highway, or a developer tearing down a quaint old one-family home and replacing it with a multi-unit nightmare.”

But the site also covers large-scale developments, like the Bloomberg administration’s proposal for a new mall, tennis stadium and soccer stadium at Flushing Meadows Corona Park.

Queens Crap — where all contributors and commenters are kept anonymous to protect them from retribution — has no advertising or monthly site stats, though it has gotten 5.2 million page views since 2006, according to a tracker on the blog.

“I do it because I know many people throughout the borough are affected by the same issues, and in order to effect positive change, they need to know they are not alone,” the blogger told TRD in an e-mail.

BRAVO, "Crappy"!
You are more than just a "blip" on their radar screen!

Who ever said that the "little guy" can't be heard?

Even "big" Bloomberg (all 5' 7') of him...has to answer to "Queens Crap"!

now it is universally known that the over-developer and tweeder "CRAP STOPS HERE".

good luck and my gratitude for enabling a senior citizen to continue serving his community from his laptop. it is important for a second opinion when the deck is so stacked for the socialists in Queens. i stopped going to public meetings because all questions are screened by a socialist panel, protecting their guest tweeders and politicians.

Good job, "Crappy"!

Though often criticized,
your feisty blog is where some formerly unpublished truths really get told !

You are doing the job that journalists used to do and the media refuses to do by serving the interests of the people. I’ve been a faithful reader since the beginning and I congratulate you on the fine work you have done.

Yeah right. 6 years of "Crapping" and what has this all accomplished?

Alot of "venting" but buildings still get torn down, garbage still lies in the street, and pols still screw everybody.

Where are the success stories?

Where are the success stories? Are you serious? Ridgewood Reservoir to stay natural, majority of people now opposed to Willets Point and probably not happening, a shitload of pols in jail or knocked out of office, Scarano's license pulled, garbage cleaned up, work sites closed down. I'm not saying this blog is 100% responsible for all that, but it goes a long way toward disseminating info that gets things fixed. Why are you so crabby?

Why do you keep coming here if nothing gets accomplished by this blog? Kind of stupid, if you ask me.

All hail Crappy!

Sincere thanks to a true civil icon.
