Popular Elmhurst bubble tea store temporarily shut down by Health Dept.

Aug. 17, 2017 Staff Report

A popular Elmhurst café known for its bubble tea was shut down by the health department earlier this week for unsanitary conditions.

Quickly Cafe, located at 8306 Broadway, was closed Monday by the department after racking up a total of 58 violation points, according to the Health Department website.

The inspection cites the presence of mice and roaches in the food/non food area and failure to properly protect food from contamination. It also points out that the facility is not vermin proof, meaning that it would be possible for vermin to get in to the restaurant.

The Health Department evaluates restaurants based on the point system, with points assigned based on the size and scale of the violation, and indicating what letter grade a restaurant receives. Any restaurant that gets between zero and 13 points receives an A grade, any receiving between 14 and 27 points gets a B grade, and any with 28 or more points gets a C grade.

However, if certain violations are considered especially problematic, the Health Department can shut down the restaurant, as it did with Quickly Cafe.

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.
