The Kew Gardens Flea Market will be taking place this weekend after being rescheduled twice due to inclement weather.

The market, setting up on Nov. 10, is organized by Kew Gardens resident Lisa Altimari, and takes place four times a year at the northern parking lot of the Long Island Rail Road train station at 82-60 Austin Street.

The events have been a neighborhood staple for decades, with proceeds going to benefit the pediatric center at Jamaica Hospital.

The market, which typically features clothing, accessories, books, toys, and other unique wares, will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The event will also welcome a special guest—a costumed Spider-Man—to take photos with children and other guests at the market from 11 a.m to 2 p.m.

Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
