Police are searching for a woman who  punched and shoved another passenger off the 7 train at the 74th Street/Broadway station during rush hour earlier this month.

Police say that the assault took place while the train was at the station at around 8:25 a.m. on Oct. 2.

The suspect shoved the victim, a 30-year-old woman, off the train and onto the platform. When the victim turned around, the woman punched her in the face. 

The pair fought each other until passengers separated them, police say. The suspect then hurried out of the station in an unknown direction.

Police say that the suspect is a Hispanic woman who is between 25 and 30 years old. She is about 5 feet 5 inches tall and has shoulder-length black hair. When she was last seen, she was wearing a white hoodie, black pants and black sneakers and was carrying a black backpack.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

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.
