Crowley’s Signs, Como’s Old Office

A reader passed on some photos he said were taken Tuesday night showing campaign signs for newly elected Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley are all over the old district office of her predecessor, Anthony Como.

The city is still paying the rent on the building, according to the real estate broker for the property. The city is still in the process of moving the furniture out of the building, but it’s not in use, the broker said.

The anonymous Queens Crap blog — which already posted these pictures — expressed outrage that campaign signs were on a building which is, technically, still a public facility.

In a brief telephone interview, Crowley told me said she didn’t know anything about the signs, and that she won’t be using Como’s old district office as her her own. Crowley said her district office will be around the corner, at 54-77 Dry Harbor Road, in Middle Village.

They’re still doing work on that office, and it should be opening next week, she said.
