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
The above organizations are recognized by Queens Crap as being beneficial to the city as a whole, by fighting to preserve the history and character of our neighborhoods. They are not connected to this website and the opinions presented here do not necessarily represent the positions of these organizations.
The comments left by posters to this site do not necessarily represent the views of the blogger or webmaster.
There is no doubt that this is warranted and that the community, as the rest of Queens, has not only been systematically denied Landmarking, but has all but been ignored (if not belittled) by the White Tie and Spats NYC landmark community.
The fact that this is a law on the books. Our representatives in Queens routinely help pass designation for that hoodie-toodie set while denying their communities the same protection, is adding fuel to dark comments made here (and elsewhere) that the law should be overturned throwing everyone into the water with the sharks.
This might have played a role here.
Push back people! Demand value for your taxes! If Landmark designation is not equally shared by all communities that are supporting it from their taxes, and the preservation community is not sharing advice or helping Queens, demand the law be removed.
Find a developer that would be more than happy to assist.
You would see a change overnight in Queens. PLAY HARDBALL PEOPLE!
