Civic groups want to preserve colonial-era artifacts at Queens Plaza siteBreaking News
The Greater Astoria Historical Society and several other groups would like to see the stones, once part of a gristmill that dates back to the 1650s, removed and safely stored away.
But the Dutch Kills Civic Association thinks they should stay where they are until the city hires experts to determine if they are sturdy enough to move.
Right now, the millstones are caught in the middle of a major Queens Plaza renovation project. One has been removed and is sitting in a construction site, while the other is partially covered by a temporary fence.
