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

260-04 hillside Ave in Floral Park
What happened to the two trees on the side of this building. I made a 311 complaint yesterday.I guess the trucks also did them in. This store has taken over our public sidewalk and I guess the trees were in the way.
I think its disgusting that the green groups do little more in Queens than act as shills for development.
They are big on adding trees because the developers are trying to decrease the carbon footprint in NYC to add to the population, but when you ask them about tree maintenance they give you a blank look.
Any other place would be fighting for waterfront parkland, here they are instruments to divert resources from existing communities to areas that are in the developer's crosshairs.
Require concrete bollards around trees near construction sites.
Why is the ground around the stump all dug up?
That '1 million tree' initiative was really 'how can we kill 1 million trees and con the public into thinking we give a shit, because we do not"
It's not dug up, the root ball was pulled up as the tree fell down.
I think we need to get after the Green Groups on this, pry them out of the library (yea, that library) and the future mega-buck waterfront construction sites, and actually get after them to help the rest of us.
Why don't they give a crap about green things like destruction of trees by development or ignorant people. Why is it they do little more than loud shilling the future of some waterfront development project?
If they care about the waterfront, why don't they push for parks?
