Kew Gardens

Community activism prevails in a David vs Goliath style.

For a quiet, hidden little place right on the water in Whitestone try Due Ponte located on 10th Ave/Powells Cove Blvd.. Dining on the back deck w/ a great view. Service a little slow, but food very good.

The bridge that the MTA needs to do is going down.

Select Bus Service: More like Select BS against the Queens Drivers. A catch-22, which is good for Straphangers and bad for drivers.

Most of them don't have licenses

Wake up people!!! They're pulling a fast one on us. Queens Detention Center in Kew Gardens was a men's facility. It was a small one, that could hold around 300. Where are the rest of the prisoners going to go? Are they going to cram 3,000 into a jail that fits 300? or are they going to just turn the extra away and let them lose on the street along with the rest of the public? Is it fair to Kew Gardens that they become the new Rikers? Do female prisoners have to intermingle with the male prisoners? Kew Gardens is right next to Forest Hills, and other powerful communities, are they going to be happy with a Queens Riker's right around the corner? Are they going to let this stupid plan fly? Why is Staten Island exempt from housing prisoners? How crazy is this plan. Elizabeth Crowley, Karen Koslowitz, stop trying to snow ball your voters. If re-elected both are going to be lame duck city council women. They will not have to answer to their community wishes. They'll do what is in their own best interests...or is it interests of the Riker Island developers??

#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.

If only there will be weekly FASTRACK by the MTA one line at a time, then the entire subway system will be good as new within a few decades or so.

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

Tell me how you can mention that most f**ked up Queens Borough President, Claire “Bulldog” Shulman, in the same sentence as such amazing woman as former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro, jazz singers Ella Fitzgerald & Billie Holliday, both of whom resided in St. Albans; Helen Keller, the deaf-blind activist who lived with her teacher and mentor, Anne Sullivan, in Forest Hills; and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Toni Morrison. REALLY, I MEAN REALLY, you mention this nasty destructive woman in the same sentence as those other woman. Well, here are my ideas for a statue of “Bulldog” Shulman. Any would be most appropriate. Feel free to ad your own.

USPS you have a long way to go for better service. As a Community leader I can't believe how many times I had to contact representatives at your agency for so many different problems. Contacting the Post Office was very easy but taking care of so many problems at your end either never happens or takes very long. Upper management needs to be trained better or I can actually see the Post Office going out of business.

Who votes for these idiots? They can't spend taxpayer money fast enough, wasting almost a million dollars on this forlorn site where nobody is going to sit on the benches Ms. Katz will spend our cash on. Until the taxpayers wake up and realize they have a choice (these corrupt clowns were elected with just a few thousand votes while most people stayed home) people like Katz, Comrie and the rest of 'em will get rich at our expense. Vote the bums out!!!

Let’s see: Illegal conversions, illegal truck driving on residential streets, horrible roads and sidewalks, illegal garbage dumping, smashed & unlicensed cars parked on streets, polluting waste stations in residential areas, illegal curb cuts are just some of the issue that asshole Queens President Borough Katz and obese Leroy Comrie should concern themselves with, not this BS over what they call a “sexist Civic Virtue” statue and instead are spending over $700,000 dollars for a project to honor the women of Queens, you mean honoring a-hole females like Melinda Katz and her predecessors like ding-bat Helen Marshall and Claire “Bulldog Face" Schulman, those fine and upstanding public servants. Another politician, Karen Koslowitz said “This new public space will now be able to be enjoyed by everyone, and will contribute to the quality of life enjoyed by the residents of our borough.” REALLY this is going to contribute to the quality of life when none of you f**ks even address quality of life issues that have plagued this borough. The Civic Virtue statue of a naked man standing atop two female sirens was considered sexist. It was controversial from the beginning, as many questioned the use of a male figure to represent virtue and female figures to represent vice and corruption. Lucky that is not Comrie on top. But hey with females like Katz, Marshall, Schulman, Vivian Cook and Shirley Huntley, they do represent VICE AND CORRUPTION, so what is the issue.
