GAHS Letter to the Queens Gazette
On your recent article “Millstones Find Temporary Home” October 20, 2010:
The Greater Astoria Historical Society is relieved that the millstones of Dutch Kills have been moved to the Ravenswood library. Finally they are in a location safe from a construction site and are accessible where the community can enjoy them.
This is exactly what the community, led by Dutch Kills Advocacy League, historians from around the country, and the Greater Astoria Historical Society, asked for – over a year ago.
There is just one thing that puzzles us.
How is it that Penny Lee of City Planning and her associates George Stamatiades and Jerry Walsh who were quoted in many papers fighting this (including the Western Queens Gazette) are now getting credit?
