May 15, 2017 By Jason Cohen

A group of teenagers ganged up and stabbed an 18-year old in Forest Hills earlier this month following a dispute over a girl.

The victim agreed to meet one of the attackers outside P.S. 175 at 64-35 102nd Street at around 4:15 pm May 5, but was instead greeted by more than 20 teenagers who chased him down the street to 102-34 65th Road where they punched and kicked him, police said.

During the attack Kevin Alvarez, 17, of Jamaica, allegedly stabbed the victim in the back with a knife, police said.

According to DNAinfo, Alvarez got in to a dispute with the victim over a girl.

The victim suffered numerous lacerations to his hands and was taken to a local hospital, police said.

On May 10, Alvarez was arrested and charged with gang assault, assault with a weapon, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office.

His bail was set at $150,000 and his next court appearance is May 25.

Op-ed: Protecting Forest Hills Stadium

Jun. 14, 2024 By Thomas Grech

After more than a decade since its rebirth, it is unfathomable to consider Forest Hills without our venerable 101-year-old Forest Hills Stadium. The iconic venue is an asset to our community in so many ways – from creating jobs, to supporting local organizations, to providing invaluable links to our community’s rich history. Amazingly, a small band of unrealists who fail to understand that communities are constructed on the mutual grace and respect of our neighbors, want to shut down Forest Hills Stadium for good.

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
