Congratulations to all of the selectees, especially the Aviation HS grads! Aviation High School 1978-US Navy 1978-1995





I'd like to correct my previous post. THIS Photo shows the BIKE PATH Exit on the Westbound L.I.E. Service Road. If you ride your bike through here, and head North on the path in Alley Pond Park, it comes out on Northern Boulevard (at the end of 234th street ). There are No markings, you have to figure it out for yourself.

I rode into Queens on Friday. I went South on Glen Cove Road, West on L.I.E. Service Road, South on Springfield Blvd, and West on Jamaica Avenue. Was able to get the bike on an off-peak train East out of Jamaica. 22 miles. I did notice , while I was slightly off course, that the Bike Lanes on 233rd St. have been moved together to the South side of that road, as a bi-directional bikeway. Asphalt is very fresh , and the BIKE LANE markings haven't been painted yet (or is it thermoplastic? They don't use paint anymore). I credit using a rear view mirror and a 2 watt LED Brake light (which is the equivalent of 20 watts ) for not having any problems on the way . The Bike Path in Alley Pond Park isn't much help, I should've stayed on Douglaston Turnpike. But the fact is, I've got over $400.00 Dollars worth of LED Lights on my bike, the average person riding a bike wouldn't bother to have that many lights, and would probably think it's okay to ride without lights because it's daytime. I'm staying on the side of caution, keeping in mind that lights are required in daytime for Motorcycles. Anyway, I ride with 1,100 lumens of Lights on my bike in the daytime, and I have no problems.










































How do malba and whitestone not make the list?





Man those are some nice pieces- the revolvers anyway. A shame if the city destroys them all,










What an interesting turn of events: Can we get some of the bus routes back after the 2010 MTA budget cuts? Time will always tell.














The bike lane on 223 Street is part of what is causing this problem. It takes multiple red lights before you can go the one block from 46th Avenue onto Northern Blvd. during many times of day. Therefore, people are going to rush to make the light more than they used to. There needs to be a right turn lane on 223 Street.


This bike lane is a tremendous hazard, not only at this intersection, but at the Cross Island North entrance ramp a couple hundred feet east. I am an avid biker myself, but I would never in a million years want to cross that intersection alone or with my family on bikes. Even though I travel that route often, I have difficulty figuring out the logic, or rhythm of the light pattern. It's just off. The light is confusing to drivers and bikers alike. I've witnessed many near fender benders, and confused bikers impacted by the strange timing of the light sequence. This intersection is not in any way safer than it was previously to the bike lane being constructed. I fear what will happen to bike riders when they become more active with the warmer weather. People are going to get seriously hurt.













Hi can I possibly get this article emailed to me? I tried to print it out but it wont print the entire article.

Let\'s go Mets! [bpfb_images] 35133_0-68906600-1445632545_11796396_928482240527137_2122202853961337902_n.jpg [/bpfb_images]



My husband and I just celebrated (and survived!) our 1st year of marriage. In early November we will celebrate our 1st year of making Bayside our home. There is so much to celebrate this year, like my husband’s recent transfer as an NYPD sergeant — from long nights on patrol in the South Bronx to a wonderful position as a Humanities Instructor at the NYPD Police Academy in College Point; like our darling new baby Willow, our second rescue cat; like our birthdays this past week (we are MUCH older than 21…but not yet 40), spent locally doing the simple things we love; like all of the blessings in our lives… I think we both deserve a nice, relaxing vacation, and neither of us have been to Cancun. It would be perfect! [bpfb_images] 34306_0-45749700-1445095207_rat9216-2.jpg [/bpfb_images]


Why I deserve a trip to Cancun! My husband and I got married in May of 2012 and honeymooned in Cancun. We had the best time! 3 years, 2 kids and many sleepless nights later we would LOVE to go back and relax by the pool with some pina coladas. Also, let\'s go Mets!
