Does Crowley live in northern Virginia or Woodside?
On Friday, the NY Post had an “exclusive” claiming that Rep. Joseph Crowley, who represents Sunnyside and Woodside (and is also the Queens Democratic party boss), spends most of his time in D.C. to the point that his wife and children live in Arlington, Virginia: “The Crowleys live in an expansive home in the leafy Washington suburb of Arlington, Va., where his three kids attend the community’s nationally renowned public schools — shunning New York City’s educational system, property records show.”
However on Sunday night, in response to the NY Post story, Crowley said his primary residence is NOT in a Washington, D.C., suburb but in Woodside.
Speaking at a forum on global nonviolence on Sunday, Crowley, who is required by federal law to live in his home district when running for election, said he lives in Queens and always has.
“I live in Queens, I live in Woodside,” said Crowley, according to the news outlet WNYC. “I have lived in Queens for my entire life, actually, so I can’t plan to move to back to where I already live.”
