Clearly it’s Forest Hills considering the fact this article is published on foresthillspost but not Regoparkpost…


There is way too much crime in Forest Hills for my comfort lately. Bank robbers, personal assault and robbery, and now this.

That’s not Rego Park – it’s Forest Hills.
And it’s my neighborhood. VERY disturbing anywhere but moreso when it’s so close to home,

Why are people saying it’s me coach. It was kind of irritating answering phone calls all day because of this guy. Anyways may the force be with you man.
