Middle Village

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.

It must be done to attract more riders for using the M train in the not too distant future once the L train shuts down in 2019.




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.






This is sad news. I hope the Diocese can have it in their hearts to save this school. ..It's an uphill battle, as most pols are in the pocket of the UFT. 9/12/17 Tuesday is the primaries. Vote smart. Don't vote for Elizabeth Crowley or deBlasio they do not support charter schools. share this message with everyone you know.


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?












#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.





A major inconvenience for all M train riders along the myrtle Avenue Line in the next ten months to replace the older portions of the line: However, the long term tradeoffs will be huge when there will be more M train riders and M train service once the L train shutdown comes into fruition.












Will track replacement reduce the train screeching noise and rumbling

The Calm before the Storm before the Perfect Storm in the not too distant future, in the public transportation sense.






At least publish his picture so everyone can see who he really is



When do we know if the school will be open for Sept?

During this time I think the MTA should also revise the Q58 and Q55 routes to stop outside of the Ridgewood Terminal that is along Myrtle Avenue at Palmetto Street (instead of inside of the Ridgewood Terminal) and then extend both of those routes further west to Myrtle Avenue /Broadway ( via stopping only at the closed subway stations along Myrtle Avenue) with a last westbound stop along Myrtle Avenue at Broadway. These two routes could then turn around by making a right turn at Lewis Avenue, another right turn at Stockton Street and another right turn at Broadway and travel along Broadway to Myrtle Avenue which could be the first new stop of the Q55 and Q58 eastbound trip along Broadway at Myrtle Avenue. The eastbound Q55 & Q58 could then make a left turn on to Myrtle Avenue back on there eastbound trip toward Ridgewood.




Catch-22: More freight trains on tracks = Less trucks on the road = Better air quality for all = Improved economic activity for all = No more public transportation access.

I hope that the MTA will need more shuttle buses to meet the increasing ridership along the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line.

People can wait for Q58 from Forest Ave to Myrtle/Wyckoff. Else, they need to arrange a faster route and more frequent bus service






Event has been re-scheduled to Saturday,May 20th

What about parking on Juniper Blvd South??





I WONDER IF THIS HAD BEEN A MALE OFFICER, WOULD THERE HAD BEEN A DIFFERENT OUTCOME?




The calm before the storm: Ot could get much worse before it gets better.






Very Cool! I used to live in Sunnyside and hated every time they were filming in the neighborhood because they would take all the spots but living in Middle Village changes everything.

This is actually great and the neighborhood desperately needs it. The owner has the right mindset, so he will do well. MET also needs a little help. The neighborhood is changing and so should the stores, supermarkets and (non-existent) restaurants. 🙂





A major weekend inconvenience for M train riders along the BMT Myrtle Avenue Line, right before a major daily inconvenience for these same riders because it needs it be done.









Seems like a cry for attention. I doubt that the multitudes of KKK supporters in Middle Village would out themselves in such a diminished manner. Yes, I remember the hooded figures by the thousands marching through Juniper Valley Park in the 70's and 80's but it seems they have been on the down low as of late. Until this heinous act...


Usually, almost always, the person who "reports" that they found a hate symbol is the one who put it there. I am doubly suspicious in this case, because of Ms. Linzer's "nobody will silence me" Facebook post referring to the "current climate." She sounds like a crazy amateur left winger trying to blame this on the president.







I hope that the DOT will finish this by this Summer, given the lack of accountability and transparency towards the general public.













Join Play4Autism and the staff at Shake Shack for a fun-filled hour of Arts & Crafts with a side of breakfast this Sunday, March 13th from 9 to 10am at the Queens Center Mall. This is a free event for all Kidz into Action members. Call 718-440-9863 to reserve your spot(s) today! [bpfb_images] 54805_0-52458700-1457707890_arts-_-crafts-flyer-2.jpg [/bpfb_images]




Why I deserve to win a trip to Cancun: Well, this is a little embarrassing, but the point is to win the trip, right? So here it goes…I was in the military for over 21 years. I am proud of my service and love my country. But it has been at a price. So, how do I begin? I’ll start at Ground Zero. As a member of the US Army National Guard, my Military Police unit was mobilized for Ground Zero on 9-11-01. We spent nearly a month working there. Those apocalyptic images and emotions will forever be imbeded into my psyche. I thought I had just about seen the worst man can do to man, on a massive scale. But I was mistaken. Because 15 months later my unit was deployed again, to a place called…Iraq. Once again, I saw and experienced things that, sometimes I relieve in my nightmares. But I am blessed, because I am alive. I cane home. And I thank God for that, because so many of my brothers did not. And I will live with that for the rest of my life. Perhaps later, I will delete this post, I think maybe its self serving and perhaps its inappropriate. But it has taken me years to be able to express myself. And perhaps this is a good thing.
