Almost 6 weeks ago (September 17), unbeknownst to the general public, a certain Astoria resident by the name of Francesca Agrusa Accetturi
posted on her Face book page seen here (September 17 entry) and the Face Book page of the Steinway mansion seen here (September 17 entry) photographs taken inside the Mansion. These can be seen below. Agrusa Accetturi claims on her own FB page that these photos were taken by her husband Mark. [Please note: 1) the creature to her right in the photo above is not hubby Mark and 2) the FB page Steinway Mansion is not the same as the FB page Friends of Steinway Mansion.] These are the latest interior shots of the Mansion that I have found to date.
QUESTIONS: How did these people get access to the inside of the Mansion? Did they walk in on their own volition OR were they invited inside by someone else? If so, who? Note the extensive touring of the Mansion from the photos: from the tower to the basement.
And a coincidence. Note in the last photo posted here that Francesca Agrusa Accetturi lives a few houses away from Peter Vallone, Jr. on 19th Street in Astoria (cross street: 21st Road)

$1 Million for a Dog Run in Astoria. $1.5 Million for a Dog Run in East Elmhurst. IN YOUR DREAMS: that $2.5 Million Fantasy Funding Moving Along Nicely. Provided by the On-The-Ball Queens Political Establishment to be Used for the Construction of a Dog Run at the Steinway Mansion. A State-of-the-Art Facility with Spacious Room for Queens Dogs to Enjoy.
What that $ 2.5 million could have bought at the Steinway Mansion site: a magnificent dog run, a beautiful public park, and the preservation of historical legacy - all rolled into one. Now this:
Bear witness to the stupidity, the inertia, and the damned-if-I-care attitude of your Queens elected officials.

First time a light ever was seen at night (12:15AM) in the vestibule of the Mansion since construction of the warehouses was begun in April. No other light visible throughout the interior of the building. What's going on?

What the politicians wrought. Almost 6 months since the start of construction. This could have been a park. Now see what you have.
