Avella only elected official interested in landmarking Elmhurst church
I wrote letters to State Senators Toby Stavisky and Council Member Danny Dromm regarding the lack of landmark status for Old St. James Parish Hall on Broadway, as they represent Elmhurst. I also sent the same letter to State Senator Tony Avella. Only Mr. Avella responded. I recently received a response from the LPC indicating that they were taking a look at what was submitted. Unless more elected officials show concern over the status of landmarks in their communities, there really isn't much of a chance or preserving what's left of Queens history.
