87th St (160-53) -- a corner house -- which has ripped up every last blade of grass and paved over it. Calls were made to 311 and Community Board 10 before the concrete was poured, to no avail. Now the concrete has been poured and pavers installed. We are still making calls, but wonder what the penalty could possibly be -- it seems unlikely that anyone would be told to rip up the work that they have done (and I'm sure it's six figures, at least). Meanwhile, the sewer back up is getting closer and closer to my house. We are going to move. I had hoped to wait another year at least but am getting more and more concerned that flooding will happen before then.
As an aside, I read through some of the comments on your articles, and let me assure you that the people paving over their yards here in the HB are almost all born and raised right here in Queens!
Anyway, thanks for your articles!
