I am surprised at all this hullabaloo around Mrs. Krantz’s article. I am even more surprised that no one has suggested any solutions. People are just debating whether or not it was right of Mrs. Krantz to bring up this issue and whether or not KGH is a good place to raise your family now.
I’d like to take this opportunity to respond to the column “Biden Did Good” by Izzo Zwiren. The author’s thesis is Biden showed some backbone by standing up to the far-left wing of his party by stating that Israel has a right to defend itself after being attacked suddenly by Hamas. The columnist also makes a point of praising Biden for expressing support for Israel’s response in public and giving him credit for pressuring Israel to seek a truce with Hamas. He believes had Israel not given in to Biden’s private urging, Netanyahu would have a “worse PR crisis” on his hands. In addition, Mr. Zwiren believes this truce will lead to “a relative peace in the next few years.”
This is for all of those who reacted over the top to Goldy’s article saying that it’s too expensive for a younger couple or young family to buy a house in Kew Gardens Hills. I have three words for all of you: Get over it.
It was a beautiful May morning and I decided to take a stroll in Flushing Meadows Park. As I entered the path that snakes around the lake, I was accosted by a sign on a lamppost with a painted message that said, “Support BDS End Apartheid Crimes Now.” As I continued walking, I counted 10 lampposts with this painted message.
I am writing in regard to Goldy Krantz’s “Dear John” letter in last week’s paper. As a long-time Kew Gardens Hills resident, homeowner, and someone who loves our wonderful neighborhood, I am greatly offended by her article. All of us in KGH know that there are neighborhoods that are cheaper – it’s no secret. However, there is something special about KGH that keeps us here. There is no reason to blame homeowners for buying houses here, thereby driving up the prices. If we hadn’t bought at those high prices, non-Jews would have bought these houses, and then what would become of our beloved KGH?
