Latest developments at the Steinway Mansion, 18-33 41st Street in Astoria: a flower planting of perennials at the hilly incline to the west of the Mansion fencing. Does this piece of land belong to the Mansion owners or is it public NYC property? Have the Mansion owners expropriated this land for their own personal use? The issue was brought up visually in our posting from last November which can be seen HERE and our posting from January which can be seen HERE.
