It would appear Community Board 5, Queens has recommended, unanimously no less, against the Knockdown Center getting a liquor license to serve 600 people. What’s even more fascinating is:

Straight up: do I relish someone stating that she does not want her community to become another Greenpoint? Not, not really. Although the truth can and does hurt, this lady is correct on all counts. It was pretty obvious to me the evening prior these fellows do not care. No matter how they care to spin it, the fact of the matter is they plan to import a client base and that client base will largely not care about what impact their behavior will have on the community. I have seen just this thing here many, many times before.

In closing I want to applaud:

  1. Mr. Giordano for his tactful manner of outlining the various, um, “behaviors” which have been documented at this establishment.
  2. Community Board 5 Queens for unanimously voting this endeavor down.

Well Done!
