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 was originally a flagpole warehouse, I believe.
This is on, or near the location of the Burroughs Family burial ground, recently built upon. The other half exists as a likely buildable double lot.
Mentioned it to our famed (in some quarters) borough historian who built his career (as it exists) on saving non-buildable cemetaries (well, lets no mention calling landfill Arbitration Rock) while the rest of the borough is getting torn down.
Since the double lot, unlike Moore-Jackson might be buildable, is at risk, but is, after all, buildable, being Queens,he, of course, refused to make any noise about it.
This is exactly the kind of person the Manhattan folks would coronate as being the right kind of preservation spokesperson from Queens.
And of course, he is.
what's up with the vegetation in the adjoining, fenced-in lot? Are those corn stalks - or 10-foot tall weeds?
Any info on the Leverich burial ground. It surfaces, then vanishes in the news every five years or so.
While we are on the topic, how about building on the Reformed Church burial ground in Old Astoria (rejected with out a whimper by the LPC).
And of course, the shame of what they did to St George cemetary - in Old Astoria where else?
Hey, what are you grumbling about - St George church has a QUEENSMARK!!!
whoo hoo (finger tracing circles in the air)
In Manhattan, there used to be a 9 ft. wide "Spite House" mentioned in the book Architectural Holdouts. This must be its Queens relative.
The architecture here looks like 1930s QueensCrap.
That building houses the late
(too bad it couldn't have been sooner)
