In a statement, a spokeswoman for Katz defended the funding for Four Freedoms Park, which will be used to improve lighting on the park's shoreline facing Long Island City.
"Four Freedoms Park is a beautiful memorial that honors the life and legacy of President Franklin Roosevelt, and stands as a universal reminder of the Four Freedoms that still ring true today: for speech and worship, from want and fear," Katz's spokeswoman said.
"The lighting will make it more attractive and enhance visibility from Queens," she added.
Check out the comments. They're great.
You see, dear readers, Katz's developer buddies have poured billions of dollars into development along the LIC coast and they deserve to have our tax money thrown toward a project that can be used to attract interest in their overpriced condos. Katz obliged. Every weekly newspaper and news website just copied and pasted her press release last week without analyzing it. This is how it works around here. And this is how these bozos keep getting elected.
