Local leaders to gather in protest of construction problems at Flushing Commons tomorrow morning

State Senator Tony Avella will join local community and business leaders Mr. Ikhwan Rim, President of the Union Street Merchants Association, and Ms. Kristen Colligan, President of the Korean American Parents Association to demand that the New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) take action on long-standing traffic problems caused by Flushing Commons construction.

Despite working for months to try to resolve these issues, pedestrians still struggle to walk along a street robbed of its sidewalk and local businesses still lose money by the day, according to a press release that came out of Avella’s office earlier today.
