More Wang Chan fun!

Back in April of 2007, QC visited this site at 73-26 Queens Midtown Expressway in Maspeth and chronicled the issues with it up until that time. Well, as you can see, it's still not finished. There's been a stop work order since June of this year for an expired fence, yet there is no no compliance recorded and now there's only half of a construction fence. Despite this, DOB approved a renewal of the new building permit. You can plainly see work being performed on the property, most noticeably by the fellow on the balcony. Incidentally, this is the site that was used in the title photo that appears at the bottom of this blog.

Just another day in a borough where developers may do whatever they please and the City helps them get away with it.

"The mountains are high and the emperor (or the DOB) is far away".

An old Chinese saying
that explains their countryman
Wang Chan's penchant
for law breaking.

Anyway when its time for his hearing before city officials...
he "No speaky English"!

That was a well used Tommy Huang defense!

Mah Jong anyone?
