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
The above organizations are recognized by Queens Crap as being beneficial to the city as a whole, by fighting to preserve the history and character of our neighborhoods.

Welcome to Queens, people. This is what happens when you have one machine that controls everything down to the media.
Just like a third world country, whatever fearless leader wants, that is what you get.
I'm shocked the Times ran the story - I'd think they'd be happy that there are wider streets for their increased truck traffic that no one wants to talk about.
This is such an affront! The article states, "This month, however, residents on the block were dismayed to learn that the city plans to begin making the street from three to six feet wider in mid-March, without seeking any comment from the neighborhood on the final designs." Do you know why the city gets away with these transgressions? Because there is very little, if any, resistance. I am sure that State Senator Padavan and Councilman Avella are making great strides in trying to protect the homeowners. Unfortunately, this "we can do anything we want" attitude is pervasive throughout all 5 boroughs of New York City and the legacy of this administration will not be a good one. From the terrible plan to put a warehousing project into the former Flushing Airport property to the expansion of the NY Times printing plant (both down the block from the 20th Avenue homes), the citizens of north Queens are facing higher levels of carcinogenic pollution and nobody in the Bloomberg administration seems to care!
A wider street and a wider smile. That's how some politicos deal with this problem!
