The city paid a big price for a toxic site to place an animal shelter in Ridgewood

Just like de Blasio's deal with the Podolsky's it looks like the city way overspent again. This time for the animal shelter in Ridgewood. The city paid 13.2 million dollars for property worth about $946,000. That's 12.3 million dollars that could have been used in an emergency like, oh, I don't know, in case there was a global pandemic or something less catastrophic but economically devastating.

The real kick about this is that this deal was made when Bill de Blasio was running for president and was barely showing up to City Hall at the time.

 Thank you Lucky for this scoop.

If this is a toxic site, will the animals housed there be endangered?

Is this a good opportunity for newly elected Queens DA, Melinda Katz, to show that she's not afraid of prosecuting or at least investigating potential misconduct, if not actual corruption?

RE: Melinda Katz

This site is on the Brooklyn side.

Even excluding the toxic soil this location is far from ideal in Queens. How can the City justify this boondoggle ?

This site is in Queens. Not sure where you're getting your info from.

The site's definitely on the Queens side of the border between the boroughs, which is farther to the southwest along Flushing as it runs past the old Onderdonk site.

The "overspend" is deliberate and intentional, no surprise there. This appears to lie within District 34, so that perhaps interested residents should call on Reynoso to look into it - although I imagine this will not get very much attention given all else that is currently going on.

The spot overlooks 1/2 the city who can issue its own permit for a 5G tower and make the money back quickly.
5G wireless will be a major component in this remote learning thing coming in.
No more books, kids can be at schooled wile sitting in a park via Microsoft VPN wireless. Brick & mortar schools can then become affordable housing stock, dump the UFT, DOE and its 7+ administrative jobs for every student.
Microsoft and the 5G providers are all over this
Don't say "Naa that'll never happen" like Republican's do, then claim "Well, It is what it is" when confronted with telling lies.

Somebody's out there trying to divert attention to Brooklyn. Gee! I wonder who'd want to do that?

This could be a bait & switch
Robert De Niro and the Governors East Hampton Hollywood friends are looking for locations with parking lots to create pop up drive-in movies where you just tune your car radio to FM.
They already scored a location in Astoria on 21st street.

Sounds like someone crooked made a fortune off of our tax money.
Who investigates things like this? Is there any oversight office, on the city/state/federal level?

The API who is a global pro George Soros type organization.
95% of The press, movie, print and broadcast media in large city's is owned by global media company's and conglormates, all members of this API (Associated Press International) thanks to the Clintons telecommunications act of 1996 that deregulated media & broadcast company's.
The fallout from the takeover's, monopoly, cutting throats are what your seeing now. Even the BBC has its hands in the pot, Note all the news, international news and TV shows with British people popping up. Even on Discovery channel, A&E you name it. Globalism at its worst.

As for you question:
1-The API decides what story's get run, when they are run and how they are edited. This includes blackouts and embargos.
2-In New York its the worst partly because the Mayors Office decides the terms and what people catering and unions you MUST use to get the tax breaks, access to things, the mayors press meetings and permits.
3-Most all the editors and "bosses" are now liberals, Democrats and Socialists. Everybody else who disagrees with them or doesn't get in the game gets placed in thumbscrews or run out. (as in my case at NBC, My crime was not clapping, cheering and bowing to Al Gore in the hallways of Saturday Night Live)

3- A reporter must submit a story to even get an assignment which then gets submitted for review over what can be asked, said, how things are said, along with all the politically correct bullshit boilerplate (if the story is run at all) In cases with politicians their press secretary's get copy's in advance so their are no surprise questions.
See ANY movie tail rolling credits filmed in NYCs territory and you will find "Thank you Mayors Office of Film and Media)
Its all as worse and corrupt as it can possible be and this will continue until parts of the Telecommunications act of 1996 are rescinded.
And good luck with that now that all these company's have become monsters with lots of big $$ looking to influence everything and everybody.

Drive New York to California and hear the same shit on your car radio, these same corporations, conglomerates got into rigging music, the artists allowed airplay via "official playlists" concert ticket, venues & stadiums, parking lots and concession stands also.
Its bad, real bad, very real hard to change because the dumb sheep general public doesn't understand the media industry!
