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

"Buyer beware".....as the translated from Latin warning denotes......especially if your condo was built by the infamous convicted felon/builder Tommy Huang!
There are still a bunch of "pre conviction" condo units of his still out there (the Prince St. Flushing job.....for example).
Thanks be that after "Tommy the Terrible" was found guilty.....he can no longer build condos under NY State law or deal in real estate.
But, apparently there's a loophole that still allows him (and his sons) to build non condo projects!
Advice to condo buyers:
Get a good history of the building you're considering buying into.Get a good engineer's report.
If you choose a ????? unit......have a good prayer ready!
Lord Crapper-- if you've not done so, or don't recall the story as it ran back in the Newsday glory years-- pick up Jimmy Breslin's "The Short Sweet Dream of Eduardo Gutierrez." This bullshit was well known BEFORE the "boom" but hey, when it was mostly ethnic people on the bad end... it wasn't considered important.
That Bloomberg could claim ignorance of this is as believable as Rudy claiming to have had dick cancer back in the day.
So Tommy can't be trusted to build condos, but building apartments is ok? WTF???
