NYAR must slow down and stop at this kind of grade crossing in order to trigger the island circuits that work the lights (and, at some grade crossings, like Rust Street, the gates). Then a flag man is supposed to be on the ground while the train goes through the crossing. That's the procedure because there are no automatic gates and lights that would come down, as there might be for passenger train service. When NYAR goes right through the crossing, these traffic safety devices don't work. Here's a letter from MTA-LIRR President Patrick Nowaskowski to Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan admitting that NYAR did not "activate" the lights, meaning NYAR didn't stop at the grade crossing as required. NYAR claimed there was a flag man out there. So NYAR's "New Team" appears to be running the same old unsafe operation. See the letter below.














Politicians should be sworn in to serve the citizens not to join either Democrat or Republican. They shouldn't use their party association in order to get elected just because they are Democrat or Republican.

















lovely u arrest the workers but the owners go scott free, good job coppers, ugh ugh ugh















Joy, they're using a map program from a 3rd party site (https://carto.com/) I think it's just the way the program writes the data. QNS.COM / WNYC.COM doesnt control that information. If you have an issue with how the program colors the map I would suggest sending an email to carto.com. I think the bigger issue is less about how the map is colored and more about the response is from that neighborhood. However, I digress. We should be focusing less on party affiliation and colors on a map and more on acceptance of everyone good or bad.


You should fix this map! If you are going to leave cemeteries unshaded (Mount Zion), then un-shade them all (All faiths & St. Johns)! Unless you are trying to subtly insinuate something here... which is how it comes across.


Typical A-HOLE comment from our A-HOLE mayor. A whiny B*tch just like the A-HOLE president he criticizes.

























So they decide to kick out Bob Turner, the only 'name' entity in this pathetic organization. I guess it's more important to fight each other to control a virtually powerless organization than to continue with an actual leader. Dumb move.








Elizabeth Crowley has been endorsed by almost every big money union in the City. She's proud of this. But we all know what this means. They don't give money and endorsements for free. There's going be payback. If she's re-elected, she's going to be a lame duck council woman. She would not have to worry about another election. Don't expect her to be working too hard for us.




We will still vote for you Mr Holden. You are clearly the better candidate. You are not be-"holden" to the big Democratic machine. You fought for the little guy, all your life. Your community looks up to you, and respect your long resume of selfless good work. Hopefully you are able to get your message across to all the voters in district 30. Once they know, they it's a no-brainer.







Crowley is trying to fool you with stats...She says only 13% of the Rikers prisoners wind up going to upstate prisons. At first I thought that number was really low, either the judges are letting them all go, or her numbers were off. But likely, most prisoners are released for 'time served' because our courts are so backlogged. My friend was attacked by a homeless person, and his court appointed lawyer dragged the case out for 1.5 years. He had to go to court 8 times, before the prep was released for time served. What's sad is Crowley is trying to say 87% of the prisoners in Rikers do not belong there... We are not dumb...so don't try to fool us.


I do not understand how Crowley could criticize Holden for not taking a long time to get the community down zoned, when he was just a volunteer and not in any political office. He was at the mercy of the elected officials.





I guess it's a "glass half empty, glass half full" approach by the dysfunctional MTA all over again. What other choice these clowns will ever have, especially with the L train shutdown looming?









Trucks have been parked along this stretch of road for years, using it at a rest stop to sleep. But it's at the base of a highway exit, very dangerous for those not familiar with it. The city needs to stop this behavior - it's also bad along stretches of the Clearview.
