It has taken a year but I never gave up and now Flushing Queens is being rebuilt. sometimes I win one
After hurricane Irene hit New York Manhattan was lucky, there wasn’t much damage but my beloved flushing was chewed up and spat out. The local council representative peter Koos lied misrepresented and made the mistake many have made and figured the poor little disabled person in a wheelchair would quietly away and give up but I don’t give up. Finally a month ago the worst of it was repaired, and that was great but yesterday Ella on the way to work rang me excitedly to tell me the rest of the really dangerous broken sidewalk was covered in engineers markings and measurements in spray paint to be removed and leveled and replaced.
So flushing has safe sidewalks and disabled access again .The really great point about the latest is it was bad and getting worse for 20 years before the hurricane, the wind just finished a job 2 decades in the making.
Finally with thanks to Christine Quinn’s office who helped keep the pressure on peter koo, it is now being replaced.
