Ms. Wilkinson is listed as the Executive Editor of the new Forum West (crap) and if you look at the back cover of the magazine, guess who has a full page ad? You guessed correctly, Arby’s! Not just any Arby’s, the very same Arby’s that replaced Neidersteins at 69-16 Metropolitan Avenue. Oh the shame! Wasn’t Christina going to tie herself to the front doors of Neidersteins to prevent the wrecking ball from doing its dirty work? I guess she sold her soul for hand full of gold(en curly fries with an Arby’s Philly Beef Toasted Sub).
Arby’s doesn’t only advertise on the back cover, they are also giving away coupons for free food! Not just any food, but really unhealthy food according to Christina Wilkinson, “Arby’s will have the unhealthiest menu of all of the fast food restaurants in our neighborhood!”
As Executive Editor of the Forum West and by her own words she is encouraging us to kill ourselves by allowing a full page Arby’s advertisement. Just read her article below…
What you don’t know about Arby’s could kill you!

This is nothing new to the JPCA. They have attacked many establishments, businesses and organizations until that glorious moment when those they have maligned contribute financially to the JPCA, Midville Dodgers or the Forum West (crap).
Our question to the Executive Editor of the Forum West, how do you sleep at night knowing that your newspaper (according to your own words) is promoting obesity, excessive calorie intake, heart disease and flatulence? Shame on you!
We are also sending your article “What you don’t know about Arby’s could kill you!” and The Forum West (crap) page that lists Christina Wilkinson as the Executive Editor to Arby’s Corporate Headquarters. I’m sure they will love to know in what type of papers they are spending their advertising dollars.

Niederstein's was torn down as threatened by the fast food franchisee in September 2005. Robert Holden, president of the Juniper Park Civic Association, Inc. sent this letter to Jordan Krolick, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Arby's LLC, who stated that "the community doesn't seem opposed to it. In fact, they'll be the first ones in here looking for coupons for free food." (and Christina and Bob are providing the very newspaper in which they are offering them!)
Unfortunately Niederstein's was torn down yesterday (Friday). It was a sad day for Middle Village, Queens County and all of NYC.
Arby's was insensitive, misleading, untruthful and we hold Arby's responsible for destroying our beloved pre-Civil War landmark. The owner of the property, Tom Clarke told me he would at least save the old original wooden flagpoles. When I arrived at the site I was shocked to find both flagpoles destroyed and the demolition foreman said he had no directions whatsoever to save the flagpoles. Arby's has shown a profit-only mentality and we will remind the entire community of Arbys' insensitivity and unresponsive behavior on the issue.
I sent you an e-mail on Tuesday asking you to step in and use your influence to at least postpone demolition. You chose not to respond. Arby's now has a much deserved negative reputation in the community and we will remind people of their total lack or respect for our neighborhood and its history. This community does not respond well to profit-only and heavy-handed business techniques. You and Mr. Clarke may find this out sooner than later.
hahahahahahaha......until you advertise in my paper then we can be friends again!
Oh Bob and Christina you are truly hypocrites.
