Jackson Heights Store Sells Powerball Ticket that Wins $1 million


March 8, 2018 By Tara Law

A lottery ticket bought in Jackson Heights this week is now worth a million dollars.

The New York Lottery announced on March 7 that one of two second-prize winners bought their ticket at Enjoy Convenience Store at 76-15 37th Ave. The odds of winning a million dollars in the Powerball are one in 11,688,053.52, according to the Multi-State Lottery Association.

The winner matched five of five lottery numbers, but missed the sixth “Powerball” number to win the jackpot. The jackpot was valued at $348 million,

The winning numbers were 06-13-19-36-51, plus a Powerball 18.

Powerball players choose five numbers, which range from one to 69, plus an additional Powerball number which runs from one to 26.

Drawings are held every Wednesday and Saturday.

Another player from the town of Seaford in Nassau County also won a million dollars in the drawing. Both players won a fixed amount, which means they will not need to share the prize.

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.
