Elmhurst








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







That sounds great. Awaiting for the grand opening of the Cheese Factory.

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.












Yes, parents and women should educate themselves about proper use of tampons (and any other hygiene product they wish to use), but to say that many women have died and tampons are no longer popular is incorrect fearmongering. This program is going to help countless young women, from girls who are caught by surprise when their period starts to those whose families may not be able to always afford these relatively expensive, but necessary, items.



Looks like the 'program' founders either never heard of or don't care about the potentially fatal 'toxic shock syndrome' reported to be the result of using these things. To any parent out there with a daughter reading this: do your research on these tampons and toxic shock before allowing their use. Many women have died from using tampons which is why they're no longer popular nor used.



Hence, Cuomo's proposal to increase minimum wage to $15 p/hr which will actually drive out business and further increase the cost of living in NYC. If at all possible, leave NYC for more friendlier cities and states. Unfortunately not many are in the financial position to leave and must be subject to high costs.

What is so f**king hard to grasp. If you cannot afford to live in NYC, then you DON’T. There are plenty of other cities in the USA where living costs are much lower. Yeah, I don’t like how damn expensive it is here, but if I can no longer afford to live here, I would move and not into some dump homeless shelter. If you cannot afford to take care of yourself, you don’t have kids. If you can only take care of 1 kid, you don’t pop out three. If you cannot afford a $600,000 mortgage, you look for something smaller…………..and so on and so on and so on. Who in their right mind would move to NYC with very little skills or little money, it makes no damn sense. I mean if your skills are picking out cans and bottles from people’s garbage can, then NYC probably is not for you. If you spend all day just roaming around the city with s**t in your pants, you either need medication or you made a bad career choice. Is the future of Queens going to be people with no where to live or worse, filling up a one bedroom apartments with 10 people. Wait, the later is already true. News to some of you folks, The American Dream is Dead, especially here in NYC. I mean what does NYC really get you, juke box musicals on Broadway that cost $150, Duane Reades on every corner and chains galore. Nothing unique here anymore, just keep on moving folks. I know s**t is f**ked up, but a little common sense. It is not Max Max, at least not yet. That will be probably about 50 years down the road, when water becomes a luxury. Don’t laugh, it is true. I want a five bedroom penthouse with a view of Central Park. But you know what, I cannot afford it, so I live in Jamaica for the time being in a nice bed one bedroom that I share with no one. Of course the downside is, it is in Jamaica, but I guess it could be worse, it could be really s**tty Corona, the third world of third world’s that make Jamaica look like Park Slope. But really I don’t want a five bedroom penthouse nor do I need one. RESPONSIBILITY!!!!!!!






That QNS.COM did as much as give integral and rightfully Constitution-focused Judge Scalia a mention at all is stunning.


All of these of violations disappears overnight, this needs to be investigated by an independent group. I just don't trust this mayor.

I can't wait to throw this mayor and all of his political lapdogs out of office. De basic or his friends better not come to Queens during election time.


Here is the link to the 17 violations that miraculously disappeared from HPD online website. These Elmhurst United people are great! http://www.elmhurstunited.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Open-Violations-01-28-2016.pdf


If Samaritan follows its long and dubious reputation, they will be as abusive towards shelter residents as they have been---and still are--towards their residential drug treatment clientele-population. For the safety and well-being of unsuspecting homeless individuals, any entity run by Samaritan Village should be avoided at all costs and investigated.









The homeless are not the problem. The problem lies with the condition of the city and state. Homelessness is the end result of those problems.
