Major World seeks major rezoning
From The Real Deal:
A disgraced car dealer from Queens who recently pleaded guilty to federal tax fraud is now looking to rezone one of his auto lots in Long Island City under the city’s affordable housing program.
Bruce Bendell, a former senior manager at the Major World family of dealerships, is looking to upzone the site of a shuttered Kia dealership on Northern Boulevard to make way for an 11-story mixed-use building with 244 apartments.
But the 64-year-old is facing up to three years in prison after he pleaded guilty in July for failing to report $3.5 million in receipts and payroll expenses on Major World’s 2009 tax forms with the Internal Revenue Service.

Bruce Bendell is facing up to 3 yeas in prison for tax fraud?
Do you think he will see 1 day inside of a jail cell?

Welcome to the NEW New York City
He needeed that money to pay for 24/7 commercials....any business that advertises THAT much is suspect...
Yea, this place is one of THE worst dealerships anywhere. I went there once to get a price on a new car and the salesman wanted me to sign something binding before he quoted me. I guess because I was being nice he mistook me for stupid. He literally became irate when I refused and when I left, some goon followed me outside.
Move along.....nothing to see here
This is what is happening along northern Blvd. Change is coming for the City View!
Upzoning should be denied. The guy is a convicted criminal and must do his time.
Whose in city hall right now? Oh yeah, Dibozzo. So therefore anything goes.
Actually that is in Community Board 1, the Board from hell.
If you live south of Nitmars Ave you can go #$$^&@ youself.
These guys are giant scam artists. I went there looking for a used car - I had my eye on a 2017 Elantra GT which was marked at an extremely reasonable price, and as having only 2k miles on it. They wouldn't even show me the car, citing that the previous owner hadnt maintained it or changed the oil (what car needs an oil change at 2k miles?) and instead started showing me cars at a $5-7k higher price (plus almost 3k in "certification fees"). They then tried to sell me on a loan at almost 9%, saying that "the interest is over the life of the loan, not every year!"
I told them that that is not how interest works, and that they are either stupid, or liars, and that neither explanation was good for them. Then I walked out and bought a brand new car at the Hyundai dealership across the street at 3.49% interest and no hidden fees - best decision I ever made.
I heard one of the cars in the lot was once owned by John Voight.
