Think this has anything to do with the city moving homeless people into the Comfort Inn across the street on 9/30? Coincidence? The entire neighborhood of Kew Gardens has been inundated with vagrant people over the last two weeks. It is disgusting and is only going to get worse over the next few months.


This is extremely troubling. I know that break ins happen, but it sucks when it’s so close to home.

This happened so often growing up, that the first thing I do when I enter my home is examine the computer area to see if it is missing. Seems like my actions are not that far fetched these days.

I hope they catch those damn guys, lock em up, and that everyone gets their property back. However unlikely that seems.
