The BP is also proposing to create specific zoning designations for areas that are primarily defined by single-family row houses. She said she is asking for this because Queens is a Borough defined by neighborhoods and they must work to protect identities that each area has. Maspeth and Ridgewood are specific examples mentioned by Katz that would fall under this proposal.
Actually, much of the single-family rowhouses in question that were to be affected by this legislation are in Middle Village, Rego Park, Flushing, Bayside and elsewhere. Most of the rowhouses in Ridgewood are *at least* 2-family in nature, with the vast majority being 3-family or more.
Plus, a bajillion Ridgewood houses are now landmarked. So what the hell is she talking about?
