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

Two issues at hand that highlight just how corrupt NYC's local boards are.
1. The fact that the property was condemned under the terminology "redevelopment". I do not believe that turning the said land into a Stop and Shop parking lot to be a redevelopment, especially since businesses were dislocated for the betterment of the one.
2. The fact that Mr. Brody had to attain legal services from a group in Virginia is pretty sad. I am guessing that nobody in NY wanted to fight against the system, especially since many of the lawyers are tied into the corrupt system. Just ask yourself how many of your representatives were lawyers.
We need to get rid of appointed community boards or else elect them and give them more than advisory power!
They do little except give people a false sense of gov't participation and eat up money to pay fat salaries for many incompetent district managers and some lazy staff!
