The police are looking to track down a man who grabbed a 32-year-old woman’s buttocks while she was climbing the staircase at the 74th Street-Broadway station last month.

The suspect allegedly grabbed the woman’s buttocks as she was going up the stairs in the mezzanine area of the station at around 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, July 31. The victim was on her way to the 7 train.

Suspect (NYPD)

The man fled the scene after the alleged groping. The woman was uninjured.

The suspect is described as black, 20-30 years of age, 5 feet 8 inches tall and about 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue and red T-shirt and dark pants.

A photo of the suspect was taken shortly after the incident.

So glad the police get involved in these incidents. Growing up in the 70s, girls got “goosed” all the time, the guy got slapped and everyone laughed. People need to keep their hands to themselves. There are cameras everywhere, you won’t get away with it.

Leave Trump's friends out of this

Thanks for comparing Trump to Epstein.

Yes Trump was good friends with Epstein and went to a lot of gatherings at his house, but I don’t see how that’s relevant.

Thanks for agreeing that Trump boasted about all his sexual assaults

The part where you parroted a tweet of his from 2016 was a great argument

Agreed, we can compare Trump to other sex criminals

Do you have a “WHATABOUT DEMOCRATS” argument from this decade?

Huang woo

Wow with clothes like that he’ll blend right in with the crowd, you’ll never catch him.


That train station is dangerous not just for women but for everyone, young and old – men , women & kids

Top Hat.

Where’s Councilmember Daniel Dromm ? Doesn’t he have anything to say about all the crime right by his office ?

You agree that Donald "grab em" Trump said sexual assault is not a crime

Thanks for agreeing. Also, WHATABOUT that president from 20 years ago?!


Dromm’s office claims that the 1-1-5 does not always respond or act on his inquiries or requests for them to carry out normal policing in the JH area.


Always at 74st, something always happens there. The police should be both inside and outside by the buses.

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.
