If Station Square becomes a pedestrian center for lounging and strolling this individual will have so many more children to attack. Perhaps FHGC should reconsider this peculiar proposition.


Welcome to Deblasio’s NY. He set us back to the Dinkin’s era. Well done.


The woman appears to be somewhat mentally disturbed and carrying her belongings around typical of the Homeless. Thank the Mayor for housing the Homeless in an expensive Kew Gardens Hotel without providing the mental health services they need. It’s 1 or 2 subway stops away.


This week, I tried to enter the 75th Street subway station.
A man stood on the stairway blocking me. He said “if you touch me, I will throw you down the steps.”
The Mayor’s Kew Gardens Homeless Shelter is having an impact throughout the area.


Easy to have all the answers, when it isn’t happening to you.
I didn’t have my cell phone, so called on the nearby subway emergency call system.
Nobody answered.
5-minutes later, someone finally came on and said she would call the cops.
He didn’t actually say “if you touch me,” it was “if you come near me,”
It was impossible not to be near him since he was in the middle of the stairs to the subway. I ran past him very quickly.
Whatever. I have never, ever seen this kind of thing before in Forest Hills, and now avoid the 75th street station – but yesterday, at the 71st street station, an old man was sitting on the bench with a beer bottle yelling at passers by. Once again, a first.
