  • The consequences of September selflessness

    When Queens residents Patricia Workman, Joe Ramondino, Christian Foggy and John Licato awoke from their slumbers 13 years ago today, little did they know that war would be waged against their city and their country that sunny late-summer morning.For these four responders and thousands more just like them throughout the New York area, a different kind of war has raged on internally in the years since the attacks of Sept. 11.
  • Bratton questioned by City Council

    There were a lot of things the public and even city lawmakers wanted to hear from Police Commissioner Bill Bratton when he sat before the City Council on Monday.What is going to happen to the officer who allegedly killed Eric Garner? Is the NYPD racist? How will cops be trained to handle escalated situations without excessive force? What are you going to do?
  • Avella keeps seat by beating back Liu

    Calling it “a grassroots victory,” an emotional Tony Avella told supporters Tuesday night that his defeat of John Liu should send a strong message to the Queens Democratic Party that “you can’t do this any more.”Avella (D-Bayside), the state Senate incumbent for the 11th District, got the cold shoulder from the county Democrats after joining the Independent Democratic Conference in Albany earlier this year. It is made up of a group of maverick Democrats who caucus with Republicans in the state Senate to form a majority.
  • Dedicated voters hit the polls every time

    Though turnout was relatively low as it was an off-year election, many Queens residents did hit the polls to vote in the Sept. 9 Democratic primary and have their voices heard.“Voting is a right and I exercise it. Religiously,” said Regina Jenkins from Hollis. Her mother worked at the polls and raised her to always come out on an election day. Now Jenkins is passing those values down to her children as well.

  • Summer in the Borough Photo Contest!

    There’s a first time for everything — even a first time for the Queens Chronicle’s Summer in the Borough Photo Contest to have two winners. And this year, the sixth for the contest, that’s just what happened. The judges have declared a tie for first place.The winners are Jennifer Morrison, who took the photo of the Ferris wheel in Astoria Park, and Nancy Morelli, who took the one of her granddaughter, Lizzie Schiefer, on a beautiful day in Forest Park. They each won several passes to see live entertainment, one choosing a Broadway musical and the other a Disney show.
