Have you come across the houses that are installing tubular fake gold metal fencing and fake stone fronts on their houses? This has really taken off in Forest Hills and I suspect Jackson Heights is not far behind.

Grew up in JH, and my parents said that the author Frank Yerby lived in that house, circa 1950s -1960s, and he and his family did the window change.
