Landlord still neglecting potential landmark

From the Times Ledger:

For Rita Douglas, it is another day and another battle.

After the residents of Schleicher’s Court in College Point seemingly achieved victory in February when the city lifted a vacate order on their home — allowing them to return for the first time in eight months — Douglas said they will be back in court once again Wednesday.

Douglas said although they have reoccupied the 19th-century mansion at 11-41 123rd St., they have been living without gas ever since. She said the tenants are now headed back to Civil Court in Jamaica to demand a court order be enforced, requiring their landlord, Eva Rohan, to make fixes so Con Edison can restore service to the building.

So where are the politicans and the community board and the media?

If this was a developer, or an offended tweed, they would be clawing all over each other for press conferences.

Where is the Queens Preservation Allinace.

Being the self-sytled 'offical' voice of Queens at LPC so the shadow of the great unwashed from the outerB don't clutter their doorway.

And as far as the preservation community is concerned, that is just peachy.

'nuff said.
