A 44-year-old man fell to his death from a fourth floor apartment in Jackson Heights in the early hours Thursday after he tried to flee through a window after he was caught molesting a young child, police said.

The man was at a birthday party at 35-15 95th Street late Wednesday when he was seen touching one of the children in attendance, police said.

Residents called the police at 12:10 a.m. Thursday and reportedly tried to lock the man in a room to prevent his escape.

When the police arrived, they found him lying unconscious and unresponsive on the ground outside the building.

The police believe that the man either jumped or fell through the window while trying to exit.

EMS were called and the man was taken to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The police have yet to release the man’s name.

Come on. I see these people playing soccer in the park at 1am with the 6 yr old kid on school nights Your suprised that they have a party during the week?


What if he was pushed out? Doesn’t make sense after a beat down to be left alone? Just seeing it from the two sides point of view.


I bet the molestation story was made up. A kids birthday party on a Wednesday, a school night? Someone tossed this guy. They were all probably drunk. Doesn’t sound like a healthy environment for children. Are these people illegals?


I do agree he had it coming. Have two kids myself and I think would’ve tossed him out the window myself.

On another note, the first thing that came to mind..A kids birthday party during the week??


Veteran’s day observation is Friday and many schools had professional day for teachers on Thursday.


NYC public schools had professional development on Election Day and did not get the day off for Veteran’s Day. Thursday and Friday were regular school days.

I get the notifications on citizen app about this incident but didn’t know what really happen, he got what he deserve.

no sympathy from me. IF it was “a misunderstanding” or “not what it looked like”, he would have waited for police and explained himself. This kind of consequence should happen more often.

justified defenestration

Agreed, I’d feel the same way if Republican state legislator Roy Moore fell out of a window after allegedly molesting a 14-year-old.


Funny how republicans pretend to be concerned about trans women being in the bathroom with their daughters, but when there’s an actual pedophile running for office they will defend him and vote for him.

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.
