What a horrible story, "activists" using the death of an elderly man to politicize this quest to choke off the only road between Little Neck, Douglaston and Bayside. Every smart biker discounts at the Cross Island Parkway. There's not even a pedestrian crosswalk, right turns on red are permitted by signs, it's just not a place for a recreational biker to challenge cars. The location is also 40 feet of the proposed 2 mile bike lane. This is a political overkill directed at a community of taxpayers poorly served by public transport. While we wait for the proper community backed lane, put in a crosswalk, a pushbutton to turn the light red, and 'dismount bikes here's signs. Send the DOT to finish Shore Road, we've been waiting 11 years!

Killing pedestrians in crosswalks where they belong is one thing. Killing pedestrians on a highway where they don't belong is an entirely different matter. The driver should not be charged!

Good! Now get the drivers and pedestrians to obey traffic and parking rules. Stop for the school bus. Don't double park. Cross with the light. Left turn only from left turn bay. Etcetera.

Can't wait for the traffic circus on the 1st day of school.

#6 The Original Pizza Sam's When I used to live in Jackson Heights I would order from them all the time. It's nice to see that some things never change.

The professional bureaucrats know exactly what they are doing, which is to inflict pain and suffering on citizen-voters in exchange for votes. Just watch: Oh, what a tragedy, we'll spend $300,000 on a study that will take 4 years. Oh, vote for me so we can continue the work we are doing. Oh, we'll put a budget request in and hope and pray that Cuomo will agree. Oh, we'll have hearings in Syracuse and Plattsburgh to see if they'll support this. The ramps are gone. The DOT wanted it that way. They won't come back. Only a totally new government can do something. New Yorkers will vote on a Constitutional Convention this year, if you hate all of this, go and vote YES!

Meanwhile, why not NYC and NYS pour billions of dollars in fixing our own subway system? I guess I will be possibly not voting for Mayor de Crony this year and Governor Crony next year.

I hope the plan includes reopening of the Woodhaven Junction Station on the LIRR Atlantic Branch.

I'm surprised that this "Summer of Hell" is some sort of overreaction.

"Underutilized" because they were in dangerous and unsafe condition, I thought I would die if I had to cross it with any significant weight. I would have utilized them at least weekly if they were safe.

One protester for each Democrat with the courage to cross party lines when it is the right thing to do.

If these protesters are hanging on the climate change issue, much of which has been debunked, then the person who made the statement about them killing trees to create placards for a non-issue was correct. They need to be informed and act on facts not emotions and hysteria based on falsehood.

Joe, it says that right at the bottom of the article lol.

Great story. I'm not sure how the writer missed the fact that Charlie Neuweiler from McClancy was also drafted this year by the Kansas City Royals in the 5th round.

Let\'s go Mets! [bpfb_images] 35133_0-68906600-1445632545_11796396_928482240527137_2122202853961337902_n.jpg [/bpfb_images]

My husband and I just celebrated (and survived!) our 1st year of marriage. In early November we will celebrate our 1st year of making Bayside our home. There is so much to celebrate this year, like my husband’s recent transfer as an NYPD sergeant — from long nights on patrol in the South Bronx to a wonderful position as a Humanities Instructor at the NYPD Police Academy in College Point; like our darling new baby Willow, our second rescue cat; like our birthdays this past week (we are MUCH older than 21…but not yet 40), spent locally doing the simple things we love; like all of the blessings in our lives… I think we both deserve a nice, relaxing vacation, and neither of us have been to Cancun. It would be perfect! [bpfb_images] 34306_0-45749700-1445095207_rat9216-2.jpg [/bpfb_images]

Why I deserve a trip to Cancun! My husband and I got married in May of 2012 and honeymooned in Cancun. We had the best time! 3 years, 2 kids and many sleepless nights later we would LOVE to go back and relax by the pool with some pina coladas. Also, let\'s go Mets!
