Check out our top ten stories of the week!

From knifepoint robberies to dining at Denny’s, Queens has seen it all this week.

A 24-year-old man was arrested for orchestrating a slew of restaurant robberies since February, and Denny’s first Queens restaurant is opening in Jackson Heights.

Not to mention, burglaries in the neighborhoods of Howard Beach, Ozone Park and Richmond Hill have boosted by 33 percent in the last 28 days and different areas in Queens will be sprayed this week to reduce the Zika virus threat.

QNS has also reported some of the most heartfelt stories this week, including an elderly College Point resident and World War II veteran who received his high school diploma, a proposal to rename a Bayside street after a late softball coach and a beloved Middle Village teacher retired after 47 years.

Check out these top 10 stories of this week:

  1. This man was arrested on Wednesday by Nassau County Police officers, after robbing a total of 27 stores and restaurants throughout Queens, Nassau and Suffolk Counties since February.
  2. Denny’s, the home of breakfast, lunch and dinner served 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, will open its first Queens location at  87-10 Northern Blvd. in Jackson Heights later this year.

  4. Tools in garages and sheds seem to be the main target of burglars in Howard Beach, Ozone Park and Richmond Hill, spiking the latest 33 percent boost in crime over the last 28 days.
  5. A 92-year-old College Point resident and World War II veteran obtained his high school diploma from St. Agnes High School. He proudly graduated with the Class of 2016, conquering one of his life’s regrets of not finishing up high school.
