It's probably too late to save Bellerose, Bellerose Terrace will be the next to go. May I suggest the resident of Bellerose Terrrace set up a few of these on the East side of the Cross Island parkway and the South Side of Jamaica Avenue to keep the savages out:

All I can say is that I can't wait to leave!
I've watched a beautiful area with lovely little houses go downhill over the past 17 years.

I blame our county leaders...Way too much development going on without proper guidelines and enforcement...I need to get off this crazy Island! Who likes that new hotel where frozen cup was..what a waste.

A great deal of blame lies within the NYC Dept. of Buildings and their Zoning Laws allowing developers to 'skirt' the laws on minor technicalities.

Sounds a lot like the breakdown of civility and respect on the NYC Topic message board due to Topix Mods who refuse to enforce their own rules.
HAH! Civility?? In NYC?? You must be joking. All civility and respect has left a long time ago. At no time has this been more evident that now during my recent trips to various Colleges outside of NYC.

OH and Topix really has no Moderators. One can flag every single post and it wouldn't matter one iota.

Well I guess our trash up in NY happens to be "diverse". Down in the south, we can thank all the rednecks for trashing the south and living up to their stereotypes.

I suppose that is something that Sociologists have to figure out.
As for Bellerose, my objection is for Developers to tear down house (that have nothing wrong with them) in order to build a NEW house more than twice the size of the original with extremely shoddy construction. All just to make money. Most of those houses are ugly and do not fit in with the character and style of homes in Bellerose.

There appears to be no zoning on the Queens side. That hotel would never have seen the light of day in Bellerose Village. That being said, it's still a good neighborhood.

Oh we fought long and hard against that Hotel. Sadly Capitalism reigns. I agree, it would never have been built across the street.
And yes, Bellerose IS a good neighborhood which is why we all care so deeply about keeping it that way.

the reason for "shoddy" construction to due to cheap labor and cheap materials being bought. to knock down houses to build bigger ones is because the bigger the house, the more families (legal or not)can live in them.
this is already happening in the towns i mentioned before with illegal rentals in houses in certain areas. the diversity part of ruining a neighborhood has to do with the fact that many people who are renting illegally or are living in this country illegally are not going to turn themselves or neighbors in. therefore when they find a neighborhood that excepts this kind of behavior, they all flock there. this goes on more in "lower" income people, than it does "middle" class.

No I never said you were from Acsword, GA or whatever, I just figured you were somewhere in Georgia since my ISP says NY and i'm in NY yet nowhere near where it says. I don't really know much about you but I don't appreciate the little joke you made before. Leave all that to the idiots, you REALLY don't want to be like them but oddly I get the sick impression that you do...

This is true unfortunately. It's the same reason why we see more cars parked. There is one house near me that seems to have different people living in it all the time and yet there has never been a for sale sign.
