Police are searching for a man who allegedly exposed himself to two women in the Woodside and Elmhurst area weeks ago.

His first victim was a 31-year-old, who was walking near Woodside Avenue and 71st Street at around 9:40 p.m. on Oct. 21. Police say he approached the woman, put his arm around her, and exposed himself to her before fleeing.

The pervert then struck again on Nov. 2, when he followed an 18-year-old into a building near 82nd Street and Broadway at around 6:40 p.m. The unidentified man allegedly trailed behind the 18-year-old up to the second floor when he grabbed her shoulder and exposed himself to her.

No injuries were reported in both incidents.

Police describe the suspect as wearing a black hat and black hooded sweatshirt. No other description was available.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit

I always worry about the females I know having these types of issues. I’ve heard so many stories of woman I know being followed or sitting across from a masturbator on the subway. I hope this dude gets caught and catches a serious sentence because any man who follow a woman into her building to expose himself is a rapist in training just working up the courage and confidence to go to the next level.

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

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.
