A registered sex offender who rubbed his genitals against a 13-year-old girl on the 7 train and then minutes later against a young woman on a different 7 train has received the maximum two-year sentence for his crimes, according to the Queens District Attorney.

Paul Kingsley, 56, of Brooklyn, was found guilty in April of third- and second-degree sexual abuse, forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment after a 2013 incident in which he harassed two women on the 7 train.

On Dec. 6, 2013, two undercover police officers observed Kingsley rubbing his genitals on the leg and thigh of a 13-year-old girl while aboard a Flushing-bound 7 train.

One of the officers spoke to the girl when she got off the 7 train at the Junction Blvd/Roosevelt Avenue station, while the other officer stayed on the train and followed Kingsley.

Kingsley got off the train and then jumped onto a 7 train going in the opposite direction. While aboard the Manhattan-bound train the officer observed Kingsley rubbing his penis on a 23-year-old female’s buttocks near the 74th Street/Roosevelt Avenue station.

Kingsley was wearing an ankle-mounted GPS tracking device on him at the time of the incident given his history as a sexually violent sex offender. Kingsley was convicted of abusing a 9-year-old girl in a library in North Carolina and another 9-year-old girl in a library in Syracuse, New York.

“[Kingsley] has proven himself to once again be a clear and present danger to females of all ages and to society in general,” Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement. “The sentence imposed by the Court today is more than warranted.”

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.
