I lived in a block and half away from this train station for the nearly three decades. In the last couple of years crime has increased dramatically in this area. I am not sure if it is because of the homeless shelter other factors however this train station was probably one of the most quiet and empty stations in nyc or queens. Now it seems this one has as much crime as the Union Tpke stop. Shame. This Mayor has set NYC back to Dinkin’s era crime and quality of life while increasing the cost of living exponentially. Who voted for this clown? This is a city not a circus.

How can the Mayor and the Police Commissioner say every year that crime is down when every day in the paper and on line there are articles about people who are victims – whether of robbery, rape, assault or worse, senseless murders? The trains aren’t any safer either. Every day on my train – no matter what time of day or day it is, there are people who harrass riders (first they’re calm and tell their “story” and how they need money and then they get verbally abusive and threaten people). Mayor Butthead and Police Commissioner O’Neill have got to wake up and see what people are dealing with in their reality, not statistical fantasy.


So crime statistics are trumped by the fact that you “read a lot of articles”? Definitely makes sense. Let the mayor know of your surefire way of tracking crime, he will be sure to implement it.


Considering the relative proximity of the new homeless shelter to where these crimes have been taking place, I believe there may be a connection. The question is should we be sacrificing the lives and well-being of tax-paying citizens for a bad sneaky deal perpetrated on the citizens of these communities. Money would be better spent by building supportive housing by the airport where there is plenty of land available.

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.
