Quaker Meeting House in Flushing is older than both of them.

Nothing good comes out of hanging @ strip club till 5am.

I wonder how much Peralta skimmed off the top ?

Do you know where I can talk with the person managing this renovation. I want to talk to him about building a fitness area that involves pullups and dips

hope they will be caught soon.

This is clearly gang related, as a gang charge was mentioned. Also mentioned was that numerous others were sought in this crime. Please update us on the gangs in question and where they are active. I just noticed gang tags on 88th and Roosevelt wall yesterday. If you make a triangle from murder site to other 90th stabbing to 88, my son's school is right in the middle. Does 110 Precinct have a task force? How many gang related crimes this year?

Select BS is going to create more gridlock for everyone including bus riders. Stealing traffic lanes, left turns, bus stops, speed limits, parking and putting bus riders on snowy medians is a recipe for disaster. It's time to get rid of Mayor Zero Vision and Select BS. Who ever our new Mayor is better reopen our roadways, railways, waterways and bring back our bus stops and speed limits. Queens needs faster and safer transportation not lies, gridlock and tickets. Say goodbye Mayor Chaos. Support the Queens Public Transit Committee at 718-679-5309 or www.qptc.org or PhilAMcManus@gmail.com

2017: The year that will be determine which project(s) will be the winner(s) and which one(s) will be the loser(s): Either the Queensrail, the Queensway, the SBS, or the NIMBYs?

I wish there will be an major investment for either platform screening doors, or platform motion sensors.

It is the bottom of the barrel people who live in that community and the totally useless elected officials like Peralta and others who for decades did NOTHING about this and let it just become so unmanageable. I think people are finally waking up to the destruction of Queens by low-class people, shady & inept elected officials (including the horrible Borough Presidents) and city agencies that have done little, especially DOB when it comes to the huge amount of illegal conversions and all the shady crap construction that has gone on.

Having read these few comments I find most of them self centered on their own lifestyles, while You have a right yo your comments and lifestyle so does ChickFi A. This company offers excellent food and service, I have never heard anyone there give their opinion on another persons living arrangement, just polite service. why these folks feel it's necessary to spew hate is beyond me. If you don't like how these people donate their personal money then maybe you should just shut up and eat somewhere else. Trying yo shove your lifestyle on another person is wrong. Trying to cause a company to go out of business is wrong. All you are doing is drawing the wrong attention to yourself. At the end of the day has it made you any happier? What ever happened to the phrase live and let live. A good line to use in our everyday lives.

I don't agree with the owner's opinions but that certainly won't stop me from enjoying their tasty chicken.

When your "belief" is rooted in opposing another person, or group of people freely expressing themselves, or in freely living their lives in a manner that hurts no one else, and you act on that "belief" by encouraging and supporting acts of discrimination against them you are being harmful, hateful, and unamerican. People don't have a "right" to be gay. They are gay. They have a right to live in peace and not to be persecuted. There is no right to persecute. "Go home to your partner" is hateful. It suggests that Mr. Dromm should not speak publicly, but should hide out of sight at home so that you won need to hear him or see him exercise his Constitutional right to free speech. Rather than tell him to go home, you have the right to cover your ears and your eyes so that you don't have to see him or hear him. We all would be better off if people "grew up" and if Chick-fil-A and it's franchise holders publicly backed away from the anti-gay policy. Until they do, they won't have my patronage, but they will have my opposition.

When your opinion is to discriminate against others, it is hate. I will not be patronizing this place. And when a protest is organized against this place, I will be in line carrying a sign.

Just like people have the right to be gay, this place has the right to their beliefs. If you dont like it dont go there. Dromm stop your bs, its not hate, people are entitled to their opinions. Go home to your partner

In the age of technology, it is essential to do this, in order for the 7 train straphangers to get this during rush hours.

This is why they get killed by playing with cops Especially running their mouth when they get arrested

Are you one of de Blasio’s cronies? Or are you from DHS? Because you are as oblivious to the law as them! Both Dwayne Clark and Rodney Moultrie are level-3 Sex offenders. Child sex-offender Dwayne Clark in details:http://www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/SomsSUBDirectory/offenderDetails.jsp?offenderid=7222 sex-offender Rodney Moultrie in details:http://www.criminaljustice.ny.gov/SomsSUBDirectory/offenderDetails.jsp?offenderid=30442 http://niagarafallsreporter.com/Stories/2015/MAR24/SexOffenders.html In the case at hand, Diack moved within 500 feet of two schools, and Local Law No. 4–2006 of the County of Nassau prohibits any sex offender from residing within 1,000 feet of a school. But New York State law doesn't regulate Level 1 offenders not on parole such as Diack. State law prohibits Level 3 (the highest risk of reoffending), and those Level 1 and Level 2 sex offenders whose victims were under 18, and who are on probation, conditional release or parole, from being within 1000 feet of a school.

“DHS claims that there is no law preventing sex offenders from being housed in family shelters, but have they forgotten that sex offenders cannot live within 1,000 feet of a school?” said Anna Orjuela of Elmhurst United. Anna needs to read People v. Diack and weep.

My father was a Queens resident and KIA in Vietnam. I would like to be notified of the progress of the Queens Vietnam Veterans Memorial and look forward to the dedication ceremony.

I thank the mayor for recognizing that bicycling IS used as a legitimate form of transportation, not a toy only. He is continuing something that has been done in other parts of the city and have been successful going on nine years. 1, 2, 8, & 9 Avenues in Manhattan are other large streets where protected bicycle lanes and pedestrian safety improvements have been implemented years ago, with an average reduction in injuries of 20%. Queens Boulevard and those avenues have this in common: 1) they (phase 1) are now convenient and safe cycling routes through to another specific part of the city; 2) they are convenient and safe cycling routes to destinations right on the route; 3) pedestrian safety improvements are perfectly integrated.

The Mayor made the absolute right decision, and it is deeply disappointing to see the Borough President, who has never attended any of the Community workshops that have been held for this project, and has not accepted any invitation to sit down with transportation advocates about this project, can so readily dismiss over 9,000 petition signers, 250+ business and community coalition partners and the months of direct outreach DOT did for this Phase 2 project specifically including a presence in the Queens Center Mall for an entire week to obtain community feedback. Honestly, calling for the bike lane implementation to be delayed is incredibly irresponsible and ironic. DOT is actually in the middle of making a comprehensive change to Queens Blvd along its entire length - the very approach the Borough President seems to be calling for. The first section of the lane is already in place. If BP Katz's recommendation was accepted, then people on bikes using that lane now will continue to be dumped back in to dangerous traffic at 75th street, whereas if implementation moves forward, they would be able to safely reach as far as the Queens Center Mall. Delay means that people riding their bikes will remain in danger, lives will be put at risk. Moreover, the bike lane is an integral part of the safety improvements needed for Queens Blvd. That lane changes the geometry of the road so that drivers will automatically drive more slowly and pay more attention to their surroundings. It also will move cyclists to a more observable and predictable place on the roadway which is good for everyone. As for this idea that somehow bikes only belong in parks; its absurd and a very outdated way of thinking. We are well past the idea that bikes are just recreational vehicles. I am a bike commuter and there are hundreds of thousands of other bike commuters out there with me per DOT statistics. CB4 sits only about 7 miles as the crow flies from Times Square. The Boulevard provides a relatively straight run down to the Queens Borough Bridge and Manhattan beyond. It is the perfect route and a reasonable distance for bicycle commuters, not to mention all the shopping available to people on bikes along that route. Also there is a gap in subway coverage that this lane will fill, making it possible for people to easily [typically a mile or less] and safely bike to the nearest subway - 7 at 46th street or the M/R at Grand. This new bike lane will provide people with more transportation options. A lane of car storage is being converted in to an active transportation lane. That is good for everyone. Finally, I was at the CB4 meeting, and it was a travesty. The DM, who is staff, not a member, inappropriately editorialized and maligned people on bikes. The Chair refused to allow several members to move for an up/down vote on the full DOT proposal, even though at least one of those motions received a second - a clear violation of parliamentary procedure. Then he stopped debate so he could have the last say, and suddenly and confusingly made a motion that accepted the "safety" aspects of the plan but deleted the bike lane [which is a key component of the safety aspects of the plan]. There was confusion and several Board members were very upset. Two stormed out of the meeting, a third tried to bring a motion on the full plan but was rebuffed. And several other Board members who had spoken in favor of the bike lane seem to have been counted among those voting for the Chairman's plan. As for the "31-1" tally, I have no idea where that came from. There was no roll-call vote. It was done basically on a single voice vote in a loud room with several members in the middle of objecting to the procedure being employed. So that vote tally has no credibility. That is why the Mayor had to step in, because the process was suborned, and the wishes of many community members - as expressed during public outreach by DOT and Transportation Alternatives, as well as ALL of the ELECTED representatives at the meeting who supported the plan [I notice your article doesn't mention Danny Dromm's impassioned plea to support the proposal at all]. So the suggestion that the Mayor has somehow violated the will of the community is completely wrong. His action will save lives. he should be commended for taking action.
