Got to pin this one on Jimmy Van Bramer who lied to the community.

Yes, we used the 'L' word. and we don't mean Library (which in Queens is another can of worms, eh?)

Check out my photos from mid-April showing the COMPLETE demolition of the Elks Club HERE.

The current set of Elks Club interiors: why are they in mid-June only NOW being released? Two months from when the edifice was demolished? You'd think their seeing the light of day much, much earlier might have prevented the loss of this historic building?

Who's in charge here?

Alas, and the graveyard vigilant (and Kew Gardens evicted), statue 'Triumph Of Civic Virtue' is hanging his doleful head in shameful sympathy and tears, support and disbelief——with only the dead and buried to serve as Civic Virtue's powerless witnesses.
