This intersection in College Point at 127th Street and 14th Avenue is known as Five Corners, where 14th and 15th avenues, each running opposite one another, as one-way streets, intersect with 127th Street. Pedestrians can feel like targets dodging vehicles moving in several directions.
In an attempt to identify hazards and improve pedestrian safety, Community Boards 7 in Flushing and 11 in Little Neck have submitted the most dangerous intersections in their areas to the Borough President’s Office.
Each community board has been asked to submit four problematic corridors based on police reports, high traffic volume and the number of turning lanes. In turn, Borough President Melinda Katz will collect the data and send it to the Mayor’s Office.

The words “commute” and “New York City” usually make one think of squeaky, dirty, crowded subway cars snaking through tunnels and along elevated rails. Or perhaps one conjures up thoughts of passengers packed into buses like sardines or jockeying for room under bus shelters. Some, especially out here in Queens, may think of a commute as idling on a packed highway in a car.
One thing that most New Yorkers may not think of — unless maybe you’re from Staten Island — is boats.

The door leading to the NCAA Tournament that St. John’s kicked ajar over the course of their month-long hot streak has slowly started to creep shut this week.

The combination of the press conference for pitcher Masahiro Tanaka and Derek Jeter’s announcement that this will be his last season certainly put the spotlight on the Yankees last week. That may be one reason why news of the Mets’ refinancing of a massive loan did not get a lot of play. Nonetheless it is a big story with plenty of troubling implications for Mets fans.
Bloomberg.com sports financial correspondent Kavitha Davidson wrote in her Feb. 6 article that the Mets were on the verge of delaying repayment of a $250 million loan issued by Bank of America for another seven years. Davidson cited New York Post financial columnist Josh Kosman’s Jan. 30 article saying the massive balloon payment was due this spring. Davidson took pains to point out that Kosman wrote that the new loan agreement did not restrict the Mets payroll the way the previous financial agreement did. It’s that aspect of the original covenant that raised my eyebrows.
There were red tablecloths, candles, heart-shaped balloons and roses on each table, about what you’d expect on Valentine’s Day at many restaurants. But at White Castle?

(NAPSI)— "One day, my dad picked up the phone and I heard him breathing really hard on the other end," said Mary. "I asked him what was wrong and my dad said he was just out of breath these days. I knew something wasn't right." When her father, 80-year-old Conrad, a typically vibrant and active person, began to experience a marked decrease in energy, he didn't think anything of it until Mary pointed out his shortness of breath. Conrad thought his symptoms were the normal signs of aging, but he soon discovered they were actually caused by a problem with one of the valves in his heart.

In typical St. John’s fashion, the Red Storm took down one of the best teams in college basketball on Sunday at Madison Square Garden, defeating the 12th-ranked Creighton Bluejays 70-65, pushing the Johnnies’ record to 15-9 and 5-6 in Big East conference play.
Well, the story wasn’t quite the way the New York Post reported it — surprise, surprise. Crystal Windows and Doors, a major manufacturing success story based in College Point, is not expanding to Westchester County simply because it faces too many government regulations here in the city. At least not for the most part.
The firm, the city’s largest manufacturer of windows and doors, does need to expand but says it probably cannot find all the space it needs in Queens. So it may open a facility in Westchester — as it already has in California, Illinois and Missouri.
He’s been in the spotlight since 1960 and has not stopped making people laugh through his storytelling-esque comedy and social commentary and when he stepped on stage at York College with friend and businessman Frank Savage, it was clear: Bill Cosby’s still got it.
Cosby was promoting his new book “I Didn’t Ask to be Born: But I’m Glad I Was,” and Savage discussed his first book “The Savage Way.”
