Kissed Off

Why has the old Queens neighborhood on Kissena Boulevard "deteriorated almost beyond recognition"? Half the stores are closed and some have been empty for five years. The bakery, pharmacy, seafood store, women's clothing store are all gone. Why? Turns out the landlord is trying to sell the whole block for a big-ass shopping center and the neighborhood is screwed until they do. [Citizen of the Month]
