Fresh Meadows rally makes headlines

The local papers give their take on last weekend's protest against a 6-family house on a block filled with one-family homes:

Knock down 185th St. building: Avella, nabes

R You 4 Real? Nabe Protests 6-Family home

Fresh Meadows Rally Opposes Construction

Jack Friedman, chief of staff for Councilman David Weprin (D-Hollis), who represents the area, said his office had been working on complaints about the site since last fall. Weprin was not invited to Saturday’s rally.

Heh. Maybe the Fresh Meadows Homeowners Civic Association took a look at this and decided that inviting their own councilman to an overdevelopment protest was a waste of time...

HA HA HA HA! That's great. The entire city council should just put "LLC" after their names!
