bqeAug. 18, 2015 By Michael Florio

The DOT will be spending the next 10 weeks painting two Woodside bridges that go over the Brooklyn Queens Expressway– a job that will require lane closures on the BQE.

The DOT will begin the project on the 69th Street Bridge and the Woodside Avenue Bridge starting Friday. The DOT expects the work, which will require lane closures on the BQE in each direction, to be completed by October 31st.

The DOT will close a single lane in both directions at the following times:

–Monday through Friday from 10 am to 3 pm and 10:30 pm to 5 am

–Friday through Saturday from 11 pm to 6 am

–Sunday from 12:01 am to 12 pm

It will close two-lanes on the BQE at the following times:

–Tuesday through Friday from 12:01 am to 5 am

–Saturdays from 12:01 am to 6 am (two lanes only if needed)

–Sundays from 12 am to 8 am (two lanes only if needed)

The two-lane closures on the weekends may be cut back to one lane depending on the work being conducted at that given time, according to Nancy Catapano, Community Liaison with the DOT.

The work is weather dependent and the schedule is subject to change if necessary, according to the DOT.

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.
