Richmond Hill

As Kool and The Gang sang: CELEBRATE!! YES VIRGINIA, THERE REALLY IS A SANTA CLAUS. F**K YEAH. Cry baby a-hole Ruby Wills is going to jail and it could not have happened to a bigger a-hole. Wills who can get up to 7 years in prison is automatically expelled from City Council. Hell, when City Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito says: “Ruben Wills betrayed the trust of all New Yorkers when he abused his position in the State Senate to steal thousands of dollars from the hardworking taxpayers of New York for his own selfish gain.” YOU KNOW IT IS BAD. So long a-hole, you probably made my blog more than any other a-hole Jamaica elected official. THANKS for the memories! So know that brings the count up to FIVE of the number of a-hole crooked Jamaica Queens elected officials sent to jail in the last few years. AND speaking of the other a-holes, are we now going to hear from the local elected officials like Comrie and Meeks on this ——’s sentence. AND how about the Queens Democratic Party which was backing him even when he was on trial. SO LET’S HEAR IT AGAIN ONE MORE TIME: CELEBRATE!

What a title of this story. Maybe you could of just printed she was murdered and continued with the rest of the information in the body of your story.

Horrible, just horrible. Ozone park please support this mans family I love ten blocks away. I plan on posting signs in the neighborhood this weekend. This violence has to end. If you see someone who is not from our area. Please keep a watchful eye. This can happen to anyone's home. Please tell your neighbors of this tragedy.

I am really s I dick n tired of these people. They dont want to work for a living so they hurt and steal from the poor working people.

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 or

By right the community should be upset, but we should do our part to have supportive services for those in need in the neighborhood. NYC is slow to adopt supportive housing models, even CB9 isn't too much in favor of them. I've seen homeless individuals along Jamaica Ave near Lefferts and on Hillside Ave. The only place they can go to in our community is the public library which I know the staff and managers have a hard time dealing with on a daily basis. So please let's keep an open mind and help these individuals in the community.

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?

Not surprising the more African Americans moving to ozone park area the more you read about crime occurring. Please keep bad people out of ozone park

Terrible crime in beautiful ozone park I live there and always feel safe. Now this summer moe crimes are occurring really sad and concerning. Muslims are beautiful people and in ozone park we have every culture and religion. I hope this criminal is found and the brings ozone park closer together.

This is just one horrible violent act/killing out of several that has been happening frequently in SE Queens. Between all this violence/killing and the dumping of many homeless shelters all over Queens (many residents who have criminal records), where is our wonderful borough president Melinda Katz. Have not heard a peep out of this political hacks on both these issues.

Sick sick people. I live on 101 street and this is sad to hear our neighborhood is full of beautiful kind families of all walks of ethnicity, cultures and various religions. Ozone park look after one another.

There's an interesting follow on to the subject of predictive policing and crime analytics at

I taught at Richmond Hill HS from 1977 until I retired in 2004. Computer labs were established in the mid 1980's. The Hill is over a hundred years old and has a very rich history. There are a lot of Hill retirees around, and we remember the "firsts"

Great for my generation with technology; even better for the homeless while thinking that these newer buses are like the second home to them.

Third paragraph, I can only assume you mean to say the street on Metropolitan Ave between 130th and 131st will be turned into an eastbound one way street, because that's the only way it makes sense to me.

There is nothing 'miraculous' about this. The poor child was abandoned by his mother who chose a church as a safe haven for the child to be discovered and cared for.
