Whitestone













Superstorm Sandy is a wake-up call for all of us, especially for the MTA to be resilient to future storms and sea level rises, in which it will be a norm from ow on.






















Please explain to me how this mother is released without bail after endangering the saftey of her child and the other children in school, but a man can lose his 3 younger children because an older child from a previous marriage, age 15 had a small bad of marijuana on him. He accidentally dropped it on the floor.The coupme's 3 year old child found it. She brought it to the grandfather. The woman used this as her reason to divorce the man and seek FULL custody of their three children. The court awarded her that custody. Both of these stories occurred in Queens. You cannot tell me that this is not a clear indication that there is a double standard in the family court system.








I think it's time for the city (and other levels of government) to stop trying to find new things to tax and to find ways to cut the cost of providing essential services. Stop being involved in things that are not part of being a government, such as entertainment venues.

















This stuff never happened when my father ran the snack bar at Pier 1. The city took over and look at what happened. My father was the one who ran people out who played music and also told the cruise ships to cut the music at a certain time. Even when my father was alive doing all of this for the Worlds Fair because he loved it, they still didn't appreciate it. So saddening to see it become this, If I could I would try to run it again in a heart beat. Sorry this is happening to the community, my father would not be happy. Respectfully, Annmarie Kiefer, Peter Kiefers' Daughter.







WELL, none of that sounds like any kind of appropriate answer for a problem that has been going on for years. AND where is our unethical borough president on all of this, where are you unethical Katz. You are NEVER at the forefront of any Queens issues, illegal conversions, the dumping of homeless shelters, this kind of noise, nothing.












This is not new news, I attended a meeting with the MTA awhile ago and they had told us it was being implemented in October.

He really want to do this as part of his own legacy for presidential aspirations in the 2020s, especially after when could possibly be governor for the third term.









Safety is a number one issue for all route changes, especially in residential areas.


If you stay inside and close your windows during the time they spray it won't harm you. Would you rather be bitten by a mosquito and infected w Zika virus? It's especially dangerous to unborn babies.

I do not want spraying for zika mosquitos in Glendale area. I am currently pregnant 5 months 3 weeks. Normal pregnancy.pesticides are a known danger to unborn,newborn development. And pregnant women. I have respiratory problem. No pesticides. I am 100 percent opposed .




I agree with you 100%. All of the other stores in the area have been replaced. There is a reason why this particular location has not been occupied by a large supermarket.

It's going to be tough asking a landlord to hold a property vacant (i.e., no rent coming in) until a supermarket agrees to take over the space. Now you're saying that North Shore Farms is too high end. What supermarket would be willing to come in to that large space where no one is willing to buy higher margin products? If that location made economic sense for a supermarket, someone would have taken the space by now.





There are many people that live outside the neighborhood, that came and shopped at Strawberry Farms because of their great prices and great produce. I will paciently wait for a newer and even better Stawberry Farms.

I hope that the stores will rebound and open soon. These stores are essential for the neighborhood.


Oh great. More spraying. I'm sure it's been proven safe and effective, just like Roundup. I always find it amazing that people think this stuff is safe. If the environment wasn't so screwed up to begin with, we wouldn't be overrun with mosquitoes.

No one seems to have any problem with McDonald's, all the big chain corporate stores, hair and nail salons up the gazoo, Chinese restaurants, two dollar stores practically next to one another.





Car and motorcycle accidents between the Whitestone Expressway and the CIP as a result of speeding and racing are far too common and well known. The noise impact to local residents who live along the CIP is also horrendous. I do not understand why a couple of police cars are not permanently assigned to this corridor to serve as a deterrent to speeding and racing. Wouldn't that be better than sending them to respond to tragic accidents?






responsibleforyouractions that was a terrible comment to make. You're also a coward for hiding behind a vague and obscure name


@responsibleforyouractions. You obviously have some very strong feelings regarding this tragidy. However, I can't fathom why you would leave such a comment. He's a jerk? He's above the law? No one is prone to making bad decisions.Unfortunately, this mistake cost him his life. On another note, you're a disgusting excuse for a human being- this is a fact based on your vile commentary.

No! Just a jerk who thinks he is above the law by doing as he wishes and it cost him his life! Thankfully he killed himself due to HIS stupidity and not some innocent driver with children in the car going to school or shopping. He only hurt his friend and family, because he will never feel pain again. They are left to suffer!

[Insert judgy comment here about a 22 year old driving too much car in the former of a E63 AMG.] RIP kid.
