What’s up with all these Hispanic sexual predators? Disproportionately speaking Hispanic men commit way more of these crimes than their white and Asian counterparts.


Your racist comment can have a bit more knowledge every fucking person is different,thinks different,acts different. All over the world there are perverted men. But you target people with disproportional.speaking because of there lack of education? Donald trump is being accused of harrasing a women, he speaks english, has an education,has money. Your comment couldve came out a bit less racist. We should be helping each other not fucking up each others minds with racist comments. Yea this mans a perv dont matter what nationality he is and this are the kind of people we dont want in our streets, PERVERTS like him…..


-Daisy Still doesn’t change the fact about proportion. This crime is about “a 13-year-old girl was waiting for her school bus inside the lobby” not grown women like that slob Trump likes to harass. This is at least the 4th such incident in as many months a 15 year old girl assaulted at 103rd street subway a 9 year old girl groped all these articles can be found in earlier posts of the Jackson Heights Post. I could probably double that number if I added the Queens post blogs. So please spare your ignorant and cursed filled cutter rants about racism and try to stick to facts.

Met Council leader warns of ‘catastrophe’ for low-income families in Queens due to lack of pandemic-era federal food aid

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.
