Why your neighborhood is full of Queens Crap
"The difference between dishonest and honest graft: for dishonest graft one worked solely for one's own interests, while for honest graft one pursued the interests of one's party, one's state, and one's personal interests all together." - George Washington Plunkitt

At least if you're gonna do it, do it right! Little known and many decades ago, somebody had a vision to develop Coney Island (then a decaying slum) into a Monte Carlo style place with casinos , and cruise/gambling ships moored there etc. This was an attempt to rescue a forgotten neighborhood with a percentage of profits going directly back into the "hood" for rehabilitation. My purpose is not to approve or disapprove that early plan. I'm here to make a point. He was African American! (I believe his last name started with a "B"?) Although he was both smart and wealthy, he was still " dark complexioned" get it! So the plan went down the crapper. Our "City Fathers" let the Coney Island area go to Hell for years to come! Now a "white knight" has come foward or is it "white money" Coney is going to get fixed up! H-m-m-m!
