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.

The Mathew Flats are working class and immigrant.
The LPC law does not apply to those people.
You should add:
The preservation community does not care for these people.
If these areas (and those people) get landmarked, the whole thing would lose its cache.
SG just ate up this year's LPC quota
of designating only one district per borough!
Queens will just have to wait until next year
to see which "deserving" (well connected) nabe
becomes the next historic district.
hasn't Douglaston has just been bumped
to the head of the line to EXTEND their district ?
So will it be 2010 until another
area is designated?
Which one do you suppose that might be ?
How about the Queensbridge Houses....ha, ha !
They resemble SG ....surrounded by nice old trees.
If LPC designated the Mathew Flats,
NYC would have to improve their delivery of services.
And that would run contrary to NYC's usual plan
of letting a community rot, turn into a slum,
until it's ripe enough for over development
without any protest from its surrounding residents!
Our City Planning Dept. is great at this!
