In preparation for the weather, the Department of Buildings is reminding all property owners and contractors to secure their construction sites and buildings.
With the memory of Superstorm Sandy only seven months old, and the work to rebuild and recover from this devastating storm ongoing every day in our ravaged community, it’s no surprise that predictions for a very active 2013 hurricane season, which began June 1 in the United States, are a serious cause for great concern. After what we’ve been through and are continuing to experience here in Queens in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy — with so many residents still not in their homes and still attempting to repair the fabric of their lives — the thought of additional dangerous weather activity is almost inconceivable and most certainly unwelcome.
However, while we can’t control the weather, we can take steps to control our level of preparedness. We’ve learned a lot from Sandy, and I would urge my constituents to think ahead and make sure they have detailed emergency plans in place: from knowing how to contact one another in the c
ase of an emergency; to having adequate supplies of canned goods, medicines, batteries, flashlights and water on hand; to knowing what they can do to help secure their homes and properties to minimize risks during a storm. A great deal of useful hurricane preparedness information may be found at this New York State website: dhses.ny.gov/oem/event/hurricane-safety.cfm.

It is impossible to express your love for the woman who raised you and made you who you are today through one day of recognition and a gift. Nonetheless, we should all put a little thought into a thank you — even though mom will probably say that it’s not necessary — and here are just a few ideas.
New York City has 578 miles of coastline, with much of it in Queens.
And the borough has about as many ways to enjoy water recreation as there are arguments about who in the borough makes the best pizza.
Gov. Cuomo announced Tuesday that he is awarding $645,000 in grant money to two organizations for the restoration of two marshes in Jamaica Bay.

The unemployment rate in Queens jumped more than a full percentage point from December to January — but that’s to be expected, according to the state Labor Department, which released its figures for the first month of the year this week.
Employment always drops off between December and January, Labor Department economist James Brown pointed out, due to seasonal factors.
Queens woke up to a thin blanket of snow Friday morning, nothing like what came down in the last storm but enough to louse up the morning commute on the one hand and beautify unpaved areas on the other.
Evidence of Hurricane Sandy’s wrath are still prevalent all over southern Queens, even nearly four months later.
In few places are the scars of Sandy more visible than along Cross Bay Boulevard in Broad Channel. There, debris and garbage lay strewn in the brush and along the sidewalks and curb.
