A year after a fire destroyed a strip of one-story businesses in Jackson Heights, Queens, residents are getting worked up over a property owner's plans to put a six-story neo-Georgian structure there instead. The Landmarks Preservation Commission will consider the project Tuesday, and Jackson Heights residents have been gathering signatures against the proposal. They say the 45-unit building will put too much stress on local services. Also bothersome: there are no windows on the building's eastern side. But maybe that's just to protect residents from locals' angry stares? [NYDN]
