Electeds care more about girls in bikinis than dangerous construction site
I have lived in Astoria for 13 years in a house that my Great Grandparents bought in 1923.
For the past 5 years or more, we have watched the slow deterioration of the site at Steinway St. & 20 ave. If you were to look beyond the plywood fence, you would see what appears to be a wetland sanctuary complete with reeds, pussy willows and white egrets. The reality is that is it a mosquito infested swamp.
Now it appears as if the rebar "structure" at the SE corner of the site is leaning, in danger of collapse.
I have only recently written a letter to Pete Vallone Jr. asking what the status of this site is.
I look forward to hearing what he has to say.
Anyway - THAT is SOME CRAP!" - anonymous
Ah, yes, this is the perpetual construction site that was featured in this post about the "controversial" bikini bar opening down the block. Remember what I wrote? "...do you really think the electeds here are trying to protect Astoria, or protect the bottom line of the developer that is building the apartment complex?"
