The "uglifying" of Forest Hills is in full swing with houses reflecting the fact that some have taste only in their mouths.

But it seems that way too many people do not. Why they feel it makes more sense to get rid of grass, trees, flowers is beyond me.
When bees are disappearing, these homeowners help speed up their demise by getting rid of flowers.
When it's ultra hot out, these new homeowners no longer have shade.
When it rains, these homeowners no longer help curb runoff and flooding.
When it's polluted, these homeowners do not help take pollution out.
In fact, go through some of the streets and you see these large buildings, flat brick fronts and rears, and three Mercedes Benz's in the "lawn".
Ugly monstrosities, and Bloomberg should fight to get the city council to pass laws curbing this, especially the removal of the trees, flowers, and grass.
