Ah yes our champagne socialist will be on they’re way to rescue him!! Caban lanceman or katz have they’re way. This mutt will walk. When caught will he be given a homework assignment by the DA or jurist. Why not to rob businesses and individuals?? Keep voting socialist boys and girls. Its working!! our council people handing out flyers to drug dealers and pimps and stick up men on how to avoid police contact and surveillance while conducting pharmaceutical operations and a joy house and wealth re distribution. Yeah Queens will wind up like Brooklyn or the Bronx soon.

Nothing to worry about here. Guaranteed this progressive area voted for Wilhelm Deblasio 100% and no doubt will continue to vote liberal democrats into office. Wait till that new jail is built after Rikers closes. Embrace the oncoming diversity. Just make sure to have next of kin notificatiins available

I wish Forest Hill residents had banded together to fight the construction of the disgusting looking houses on Jewel Avenue and surrounding areas. Not all people who live in homeless shelters are criminals. I’m just glad that this low life only took the money and didn’t hurt or kill the man, but it still had to be frightening.

Sara Ross, your blissful ignorance is staggering. Are you the one who leaves near a homeless shelter? You are concerned about this McMansion on Jewel and surrounding streets, however, not for nothing, these monstrosities bring up value to the area (again for the record, I can’t stand the sight of them). You are no longer calling the owners of these houses “Russians”, which is a great progress. It shows that you are reading my little posts.

I’ve noticed police presence at the QBlvd north side 75th Ave subway entrance at night since the shooting last month. I wonder how close this incident came to being avoided.

Turning the Kew Gardens hotel into a homeless shelter is taking its toll on the surrounding areas.
This is why Forest Hills residents need to participate in the Kew Gardens fight against a mega jail for Rikers inmates.
Think it’s bad now, just wait.
