I couldn’t help but feel
saddened frustrated regarding my idea to raze Queensbridge, when I read that the city is throwing $100 million into attacking the mold problem at our public housing projects. A large portion of this money is earmarked for Queensbridge, as is $100 million that Albany is pitching in, and if that is not enough “the mayor announced that his administration will provide an additional $200 million over the following two years.” C’mon guys ‘n gal, $400 million just for roofing and mold? The project will still be a lousy place to live and raise kids after this expenditure. Tear’em down already, start new, and build higher.
