  1. Please pardon me for using your space: I’m a plain guy and I want to be plain with you. Thank you. (Hello YIMBY)

  2. 1935?! Try 1915 or earlier. What a shame to lose another ornate piece of Queens’ architectural history. #nimby

  3. Those remaining row houses wedged between larger buildings might be older but are no longer in context with the surrounding neighborhood. The additional housing near great transportation is badly needed.
