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

Looks more like a coffin.
these hipsters are the new white trash.this is the equivalent of having a kiddie pool in the front yard.
this is just another attempt to mimic the faux luxury lifestyles you see in those corona commercials.
I agree with j. This thing is going to look stupid on the roof. Only some dumb hipsters would do something like this. Why can't they just go back to their own homeland state?
If it's against any zoning laws they have nothing to worry about. The Buildings Department inspector won't be able to get on the roof. He will then close the complaint. Unable to gain entry.
Wow - what sour grapes! Why can't someone have a hot tub?
We should be so lucky as to have hipsters (and they are so not white trash) move into Queens and displace some of its Third World ghetto trash.
Imagine young, educated, creative people speaking English in Corona and shithole Flooshing? We might even get a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's instead of another fucking useless, disgusting H-Mart!!!!!!
"young, educated, creative people"????
Half of them are in their 30s, and are loafing around on their parents' money, not creating anything of value or the least bit creative. Do you even know what a hipster is?
It's a pejorative term because they're phony.
I hate hipsters, but I love hotubs! Also, this seems more like a job for a crane.
"We might even get a Whole Foods or a Trader Joe's" ... says it right there. It's a new form of white trash. People flock to those business b/c it's somehow in their head cache cool or makes them feel smug. I'll take the "ghetto trash", immigrants and all the other people that always were and always will be new yorkers over these fly-by-night trustfund douches anyday. Yea, after Whole Foods, we can get $15 whiskey cocktails in an artisan glass make with locally sourced ingredients. Geez. And back to topic: $3000 hot tub plus probably $1000 delivery (to the roof), then plumbing/install. All while they dont even own the damn place so it is wasted money (but hey, it's their parents so whatevs). Then when things break and the flooding destroys the roof, the landlord has to use their parents $5000 deposit to cover $20,000 of water damage. So yea, people have a right to see this behavior as dumb.
"hipsters are the new white trash"
Well yeah, a good most of them ARE trailer trash yahoo from Ohio, Michigan, Iowa and redneck sticks of the south.
Every stop along the "LL train line between Bedford ave & Halsey street has become an asshole magnet. Was this dude with blue beard last week dressed in 1950s golfing attire with laced 3 color spats.
This citys gone to complete hell !!
You guys totally missed what is going on here. Two days later three dozen dump trucks filled with beach sand arrived at this site and the contents was pumped up to the roof.
The hot tub is actually going to be used this spring and summer to boil lobsters, crabs and clams for hipster beach parties.
Umbrellas and beach chairs are scheduled to arrive next week.
Whats with all those mattresses out on the sidewalk, bedbug problems ??
We have found hipsters are perfect for the developers as they do not put down any roots or give two shits for their community, but make a great marketing gimmick that the community is 'cool' until you find that the light life is bottle bars and hookah lounges.
But a stay cat, dirty water taco truck, time warner cable, or cool new restaurant facade, and you have a blizzard of text messages.
When you are a loser deep in dept with no prospects of starting a real life you do those things ya know!
Call the building dept and fdny about this if its illegal.
The way he's using the forklift is stupid.
Anon #4 has a point. Though I think the "kids" are overcoddled and the parents wasting their money, it's really not our business as long as they're law abiding, and aren't brokering any shady deals with the pols and developers.
That's not to say they aren't providing a market for those shysters who will make those deals - that goes without saying - but no one can accuse hipsters themselves of any wrongdoing for willingly overpaying for overhyped up crap. If they start to flout zoning and safety regulations, THEN we should get on their case.
BTW - Trader Joes and Whole foods are 2 completely different things. Former cuts out the middle man and reduces product options to undercut just about every other supermarket on price. Whole Foods is a luxury brand with HUGE markups.
A hot tub at a warehouse screams "illegal conversion" to me.
The operator of the forklift is a Darwin Award candidate pending a demonstration of a concept called "center of gravity"
You prehistoric Archie Bunkers have this all wrong !!
The tub in the photo is part of an upcoming art show. Get hip or go away, to bed, watch Lawrence Welk, pick your feet count sheep or something.
The mattresses on the sidewalk ? Thats the factory where the old collected mattresses are re-cycled into "new improved" mattresses and box springs..
It looks to me like a hot tub time machine.
Out of the way Archie Bunkers! Zooey got a degree in Hot Tub Studies from Ohio University!
Didn't you read my latest bio? I was a big, big Lawrence Welk fan. Check it out with Joyce Maynard.
hey zooey(if that is your name,or you're being facetious)I watch lawrence welk ironically.
get out of my city,new girl
Some kids never grow up.
That is my name you have a hell of a nerve you old crow !! It actually Zoey (My mom's) from the 70s) I changed it to Zooey its more feminine and I'm not from no cow stinking Ohio but Rochester!!!
You probably never used or even fit in a spa. That's because all the water would overflow out. YOU NEED THE CAR WASH !!!
