A 22-year-old man was stabbed during an attempted robbery earlier this month while standing outside a Corona bar, police said.

The victim was in front of Salon Mexico, a bar located at 97-15 37th Ave., when he was approached by two men at 2:20 a.m. on Thursday, July 5 who demanded his cellphone and cash. When the victim refused, one of the suspects pulled out a knife and stabbed him in the chest and back, police said.

The victim was taken to Flushing Hospital where he was treated and released. The two suspects fled eastbound on 37th Avenue empty handed, according to police.

The suspects are both Hispanic and the police captured a photo of one of the perpetrators at a nearby store.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477)

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.
