Authorities Shut Down Unlicensed Club in Corona, In Breach of COVID-19 Restrictions

Sheriff’s office shut down an unlicensed club in Corona early Sunday (@nycsheriff)

Deputies from the city Sheriff’s office shut down an unlicensed club in Corona that was filled with more than 150 people early Sunday.

Photos released by authorities show maskless partiers packed inside the location at 45-18 104th St. at around 3:45 a.m. Sunday.

Five people were arrested during the raid, authorities said. One was allegedly working as the club’s security guard and another was the DJ, NBC reported. Three other men were fined for promoting the party, deputies told the TV station.

The charges can carry a $15,000 fine after the state increased penalties for sponsoring mass gatherings in October.

The Sheriff has raided several western Queens gatherings — in Maspeth, Jackson Heights and Woodside — over the past few weeks. Last weekend, they found 300 people packed into a basement on Junction Boulevard.

Corona, Jackson Heights, Jamaica, etc. Anybody see a pattern of the people that don’t give a dam about anybody else in this city and don’t care if another 500,000+ people die? Arrest them for endangering the welfare and health of thousands of people that they come in contact with.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
