The people in western Maspeth have worked hard and prayed for a park at the former site of St. Saviour’s Church for more than five years.
It was not right for City Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village) to decide that she would move the funding we lobbied so hard for to a smaller, less-urgent project without community input.
We were in the best position we had ever been in to acquire that site and she needlessly threw it away.
