Grand Avenue looks a lot different these days

Grand Avenue in Maspeth is pretty low-rise, and these latest additions aren't all that tall but they do seem to tower over everything else.

You can see what I wrote last year about progress at the pile on the left as well as the pile on the right. (Love the "balcony on top of false balcony" look.) Then you can take a trip back in time to 2008 when the whole magilla got started under seedy circumstances.

What incredibly ugly shit!

Boxes for people to be packaged in. Cost effective for the builder. Higher prices for renters or buyers. I have seen beehives that are more aesthetically put together. But is not that our future , to become drones or worker bees without souls?
Ask the queen of Queens, the developers' whore, Melinda Katz.

I would prefer truly ugly or tasteless. The are bland and without soul.
