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. They are not connected to this website and the opinions presented here do not necessarily represent the positions of these organizations.

Wonderful. Usual BS that only would helps Manhattan and Brooklyn when they are at third base.
What about us in Queens where the bullies have the baseball?
We need something that if an application is sumbitted, say signed by 50 people, nothing can happen unless there is a public hearing.
Then that would stop both the newspapers and the preservation community from ignoring community grassroots groups in Queens.
Not sure how many people already saw this but I would definitely check out Tom Wolfe's New York Times Op-Ed from November.
A criminal developer like Tommy Huang cares little for stop work orders or revoked permits issued by DOB!
He'll abuse or destroy a landmarked (or calandered) building and pay his (minor) fines as a cost of doing business!
There needs to be a system of some serious performance bonds (placed in escrow accounts) by an owner of a calandered or landmarked property to insure his compliance with the law!
Anything else is just a fart in a windstorm!
