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

That's kind of sad. The heart of a house being ripped out and with it the soul of a neighborhood.
I used to live on 69th Street before I moved up to CT. The great shame is that the fault lies not just with the greedy developers, but for the former home owners who sell the property and basically care less what happens to it. They know that its going to be taken down and it just doesn't matter to them. Their interest isn't the neigborhood they are leaving behind, and they pretty much can care less what happens to the neghbors.
Next door to me was a lovely piece of property with a long drive way, and treese that ran along side the house I rented. Its a shame but more than likely when the woman who lives there passes away, it will be sold and a mutli family dwelling will go up and destroy more of the character of Middle Village...
