A reader sent in this photo a few weeks ago. It really is an outrage. He explains below:
The construction site at [click this, it's a doozy - QC] 71-57 Austin Street in Forest Hills already has numerous DOB violations and now the contractor has just poured cement into the two sidewalk tree pits in front of the property. The fate of the trees has literally been sealed. We strive so hard to protect our street trees. When I see this, I get really upset. I can't understand why contractors continuously do this throughout our borough.
