Drivers will now have to pay to park on a stretch of Northern Boulevard.

The Department of Transportation installed 25 muni-meters last week along Northern Boulevard from Junction Boulevard to 112th Street.

The 17-block stretch of meters will allow for one-hour parking, according to a DOT spokesman.

The meters have been installed on blocks that have residential and commercial establishments.

Meters will run from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on the westbound side of the street. On the eastbound side, they will start at 8 a.m. and end at 4 p.m., according to the DOT. Street cleaning regulations remain in effect for both sides of the street.

Not everyone is pleased with the meters.

Community Board 3’s District Manager Giovanna Reid said she will reach out to the DOT and see if some of these meters can be removed.

“We are not happy about this situation,” she said. “We are fighting this.”

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.
