104-59 41st Ave. Corona. That was my home when I was growing up. I was a single child baby boomer. My father,a WW2 veteran, owned his own taxi cab and my mother was a nurse at Elmhurst Hospital. Went to P.S 19, then on to P.S. 16 . (1957-1960) The graduation ceremony from P.S. 16 was held in the movie theater which you can see in the photo. After that I attended Newtown High School then St. John’s University (The “Redmen”) Back then my neighborhood was mostly Italian. Stick ball, Superman comics, the Mickey Mouse club on black white T.V. and watching Mickey Mantle hit home runs kept my friends occupied. “Just come home before it’s dark” was what all mothers back then told us. My parents sold their house and later the owners sold it to a contractor who tore it down. Now a four family lives in the lot that was my home for three. I’m so sorry you missed those days. It was full of good memories. I organized my friends to collect newspaper. 100 pounds would get us 30 cents. Enough to buy baseball cards and Italian ices. 5 cent for small and 10 cents for a larger cup. That store was on 104th st. opposite from the Post office. Before the post office was newspaper store that sold toys in the back. Come to think about it, they must of sold more then that to have a store that big, but then when your 6 years old you don’t think about it.

Got to go, I have patients waiting, but seeing that photo brought back so many memories.

I live 10min away from there and I’m not surprised anymore about the shootings and deaths going around that area. It’s an all Hispanic area and I see officers with my own eyes being racist towards people there. Of course they would take action in an all white community.

Why would cops patrol if the state is a Democratic state and it’s turning into another California where police will get disrespected or violated for stopping or arresting an immigrant even when he’s caught red handed. I say that to say this, that part of corona is 99% Hispanic and majority of them are immigrants. Wouldn’t it be considered an immigrant on immigrant crime? I’m an immigrant but I waited 7 years to be a citizen . People will assume they’re working with ICE. Majority of the cops just want their day to go by and collect their checks.

I could tell the gang bangers are in the playground in plain sight by the handball courts. And it’s not like the movies “Colors” they don’t wear Red or Blue.
The cops need to learn that fast.

I’m going to keep it realbbwith you. The reason why you don’t see police walking aroubnd there is mostly because people are afraid. Some cops could be working with or be involved with ICE. Growing up these with some of the safest neighborhoods to be in walk in and live in now it’s a shame you can’t even walk amongst your own people.

What’s happening to this area? Why aren’t the police patrolling given the amount of shootings lately?

I guess its the new gen of gangbangers. Its all along roosevelt ave from 111th st to 69th st. Since its getting warmer, more and more of them are going to start popping up trying to grab more territory

You can blame de Blasio. He has tied the cops hands.
New York needs another mayor like Guiliani.
But until the people of NY wake up when it comes to whom they elect, this will continue.

Monseratte is not an elected official.
It’s Moya & Jessica Ramos who are enabling this. A few days before this, Ramos had her people out, giving men flyers on how to avoid police surveillance.
And you know Moya only cares about filling his political pockets. It’s really terrible what is going on in this area. It’s the worst it has been in decades.

It’s that darn Swiss gang again! When are the cops going to do something to stop them. Always driving around in suped up cars with yodeling blasting out the windows and speaking Romansh. Probably a minor disagreement about which church service to attend.

When cops do their job, they are called racist by the very people they try to protect. The good thing is that thugs are killing each other. That might be a way of getting rid of gangs. Although they keep coming.
