Dutch Kills, a small community and part of Long Island City, happens to be the site of the first European community in Queens. It's a quiet and safe neighborhood with small two and three-story homes, and is two stops from Bloomingdale's.
Not only has our quiet and sweet community been 'rolled over' by the Department of City Planning, but now the Department of City Planning continues to make poor decisions that will further harm the only historic artifacts that link Dutch Kills of today to the Dutch Kills of hundreds of years ago.
As a resident of an historic house in Dutch Kills for 30 years, I hope you will cover this story. We think it matters to all New Yorkers.
