|COMET: Communities of Maspeth & Elmhurst Together||
Concern has been expressed by residents about a large number of boxes fashioned into a shelter by a homeless person behind Stop and Shop on Grand Avenue. The structure is near the railroad tracks, is unsafe and a fire hazard. The inhabitant of this structure also has placed several crosses on the ground, giving the illusion of graves. COMET suggests you do not enter the alley alongside to attempt to view this scene. It can safely be viewed from the roof parking lot of the store if curiosity gets the better of you. Deputy Inspector Green of the 104th Precinct has assured COMET that the situation will be dealt with this week.
