The Steinway Mansion "Gang of Seven": Smile, smile, smile.

Smile, smile, smile.  For your viewing pleasure:  a gaggle of grinning, good-for-nothings as the historic Steinway Mansion site gets torn asunder.  The Steinway Mansion, the most beautiful building in Queens:  a glorious sacrosanct tribute to American greatness built before the crucible of this your American history, the Civil War.  A veritable ante-bellum architectural gem in Queens.  Did these individuals lift a hand to help prevent the ongoing current construction obscenity in their "beloved" Astoria?  Smile, smile, smile.

From the current issue of the Queens Gazette:  Anthony Meloni of the Astoria Civic Association, Councilman Costa Constantinides,  Paul Halvatzis of Amorelli Real Estate (which brokered the Mansion's sale),  Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas,  former NYC Council Speaker Peter Vallone, Sr.,  State Senator Michael Gianaris,  former NYC Councilman Peter Vallone, Jr.

Smile, smile, smile
