Jan. 4, 2019 By Meghan Sackman

Police are searching for three men who ambushed a food deliveryman and stole his scooter outside a Forest Hills apartment building on Christmas Day.

The robbery happened at around 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 25, when the 40-year-old victim was delivering food to the building at 66-20 108th St.

The deliveryman was let into the building lobby by the unknown individual who placed the order, but he was soon attacked by two other men wearing masks.

The masked men forcefully took the victim’s keys from him and fled with his red 2009 Yamaha scooter.

The men pushed the scooter southbound on 66th Avenue, according to police.

The suspects are described as Hispanic and between 18 and 20 years old.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Disgusting behavior, and on Christmas Day to top it off. I hope these kids get what they deserve! Why they were not busy with family on that day particularly is just surprising. Whether you celebrate or not, not much is open and it tends to be a day of togetherness. I hope the delivery man gets an even better scooter back and didn’t suffer much trauma from the event and wish him all good things for 2019.

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.
