From Bayside Patch:
Church and City came to a head at a hearing on Monday night, with one Community Board 11 member calling for the church folks to tear down their own building.
A consultant hired by Korean Central Presbyterian Church located at 58-06 Springfield Blvd., had appeared before the board to garner a variance to permit the Church’s existing gym.
The Church claims to have discovered in 2009 the need for a Certificate of Occupancy for building additions completed in 1998.
A one story community facility is permitted by code, as long as the height does not reach 23-feet above the curb, according to Church consultant, James Chin. The height of the gym stands at 28 feet.
The church group allegedly falsified their mortgage application to claim that they were building a commercial establishment. Their zoning status as a community facility, typically a designation for non-profits, allowed them to sidestep laws requiring more parking than they could provide.
The variance was approved by the board.

Ah, yes, those trustworthy Asians once again. Such fantastic, honest, people.
Wow, all of them? Aren't there a lot of Asians?
It has nothing to do with Asians you a$$hole.
It has to do with people, Asian or otherwise, and there's plenty of them, from all ilks running around, willing to bend rules to their own means.
Reading the comments there on the link, it seems there were a number of board-members who voted AGAINST the variance.
All Church's are a waste of space. Tax all religions , balance the budget.
There used to be a nice nursery located on that spot.
the name of the of former plant and flower nursery was KEIL BROTHERS. the business relocated to 48th avenue at about 210 th street.
community property owners never care who they are selling to ,when the money is right. they laugh all the way to the bank.
we are our own enemy....
You're a fool.
There's nothing wrong with selling the property to a church, or whomever else.
It's the church that broke the law, plain and simple.
was there something wrong in a jewish temple selling their property to the d.o.e ,nearby the new nursery, on 210 street ?
the local papers had a shout out on this deal suddenly a deal was made with an asian church.
Can you try again and make some sense this time?
WHY DOES THIS BLOG HAVE SOME MANY RACIST POSTING THEIR IGNORANT COMMENTS AGAINST ASIANS?! THE ISSUE HAS TO DO WITH PEOPLE, NOT RACE! A FEW ROTTEN APPLES DON'T REFLECT THE WHOLE TREE.
