Denny’s scheduled to open Jackson Heights location Jan. 25

Jan. 2, 2017 By Christian Murray

Denny’s is scheduled to open in Jackson Heights in a little over three weeks.

The diner chain, which put up a “coming soon” sign at its 87-10 Northern Blvd. location in May, announced that it will be opening January 25 on its Facebook page.

The company planned to open the restaurant in fall but ran into construction delays.

This will be the first Denny’s in Queens, according to the company’s website. There are two other locations in New York City. One is located on Nassau Street in Manhattan and the other on Pennsylvania Avenue in Brooklyn.

The chain is known for serving breakfast, lunch and dinner 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has more than 1,700 restaurants worldwide.

Denny’s is currently recruiting staff for its Jackson Heights location and is interviewing prospective cooks and servers on site between 9am and 3pm today through January 6.

The restaurant is located in a large new commercial building that is also home to Chipotle Mexican Grill, which opened in December 2015, and Dunkin Donuts that opened in March 2016.

I’m disappointed to see another fast food franchise open in Jackson Heights. Not the sort of eating establishment that provides a nutritious meal. An alternative model is needed to encourage entrepreneur immigrants to open a restaurant.

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.
