They need more bike lanes in the area to reduce the amount of drive by shootings. Let’s raise taxes on the ultra rich to fund “significant investments in critical state services”

At that time of day, there had to be a lot of people on the street who saw it happened and maybe caught part of a license plate number. Not to mention cameras that are around to catch drivers that are speeding. Another senseless killing in DeBlasio’s Dodge City.


Sarah, no one is looking at the license plate while the shots are fired. Only hope is for the cameras. This is a city that Deblacio has created.

Top Hat.

That’s not too far from Sen. Jessica Ramos office, I wonder if she has anything to say about the violence and crime in the area.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

Mar. 28, 2023 By Bill Parry

As an accomplished legislator, law professor and media personality with broad experience in government and not-for-profit organizations, Met Council CEO and executive director David Greenfield is well aware of the power of words. With Passover arriving on Wednesday, April 5, and with federal pandemic food assistance no longer available to low-income families in Queens, the leader of the nation’s largest Jewish charity organization warned of a coming “catastrophe” and called for the city to step up to provide $13 million in emergency funding for pantries to help New Yorkers facing food insecurity and elevated costs of living in the borough.

Pair of Queens community organizations will activate public spaces to celebrate local cultures

Two Queens community organizations are among an inaugural cohort of five groups citywide that will lead new projects to celebrate local cultures and histories in public spaces under a new initiative called The Local Center in a partnership between Urban Design Forum and the Association for Neighborhood & Housing Development (ANHD).

At a time when New York is grappling with an uneven pandemic recovery and as displacement looms large for communities and neighborhoods across the five boroughs, this new endeavor will convene interdisciplinary teams to transform and activate the shared spaces where cultural traditions flourish — and importantly, center the community visions and leadership that is too often left out of the process.
