March 6, 2016 Staff Report

The police are searching for a man who allegedly pushed a 15-year-old girl onto the subway tracks last night as a 7 train was approaching at the Roosevelt Ave and 103 Street Station.

The suspect approached the woman on the Manhattan-bound platform from behind at 8:40 pm Saturday and pushed her in front of an oncoming 7 train, police said.

The motorman of the train saw the woman on the train tracks and he activated the emergency brake.

The woman was able to position herself between the platform and the wheels of the train, police said.  She was taken to Elmhurst hospital via EMS with only minor injuries. The suspect fled from the mezzanine area of the station toward the street area, police said.

The individual being sought is described as a male Hispanic, mid-to-late 20’s, 5’5″, last seen wearing a black jacket, white T-shirt, gray pants and white sneakers.

The police have released surveillance video of the suspect fleeing the scene.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS

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.
