Beauty Salons are a blight on communities not a source of public health information. Wow.

Jackson heights has tons of fruit and veg stores and has a decent amount of supermarkets. This is a ridiculous article

I don't buy this article - especially not the headline - at least for Jackson Heights. A high number of restaurants/fast-casual restaurants in an area does not necessarily mean that there is a lack of fresh options available. Jackson Heights has a ton of restaurants - and a ton of grocery stores. Sure, the ratio of restaurants to grocery stores might be higher than in other neighborhoods, but that is likely due to the very high number of restaurants - not a lack of access to healthy food. There are absolutely food deserts but this is not one of them.

A turning point to say the least: How hypocritical.

Such everyday bureaucracy by the MTA.

The State Senate could make or break on which funding proposals will be passed for MTA funding in the future?

This election year could make or break an incumbent or a candidate, specifically on the issue of mass transit.

Getting the flu shot doesn't help

The Dome over Manhattan shown at the top of this post was by architect and engineer Thomas C. Howard of Synergetics, Inc. It was originally displayed in an exhibition at the Museum of Arts in 1959. After the show ended Mr. Howard gave it to Buckminster Fuller. It was later discovered in Buckminster Fuller's archives and wrongly credited to him as are most of TC Howard's dome buildings. Fuller was not an architect and did not design any actual dome building.

It's too bad the mass transit crisis is not the major priority for all citywide election races.

In June 2014, Assemblyman Francisco Moya made a passionate and heartfelt commitment to oppose the City’s conversion of the Pan Am hotel into a massive shelter. In a community meeting, he stated that he would “chain himself to the gates” to get his message across. I would like to give you a few examples of how he kept this zealous commitment. By not returning or even taking multiple calls from his constituents, failing to meet with the community on issues with the shelter, not attending a single community rally, hiring staff who are experts in diverting residents concerns. Assemblyman Moya is worse than the politicians who chose to do nothing to help our community. Now he is dumping his Assembly seat and running for City Council in District 21. Today, he executed a blatantly disgraceful tactic to get votes from District 21. He took credit for phasing out the use of commercial hotels by DHS and the Mayor. But at what price? If elected to the City Council in District 21, payback will be in the form of being a “yes man” to the Mayor at the Community’s expense. Why did he not take the first initial step to phase out DHS’ use of hotels in his own State Assembly district? The Boulevard Motor Inn, the Crown Motor Inn, the Hotel Q are all within his jurisdiction and within a congested three block radius of each other. I would like nothing more than to see Francisco Moya vacate his seat in the State Assembly, but I feel that voters in District 21 should be advised. He will only make empty promises which sound great but will always only work for himself to further his political career. Beware of candidates bearing gifts.

Moya did not lift a finger to help his constituents in Elmhurst when they protested against the Pan Am. ... He's not going to do anything once he's elected. He is just another waste of space candidate.
