Under two big white awnings that shade a bayside pier at Beach Channel Drive and Beach 108th Street, dozens of people lined up to prepare to board a Seastreak boat. Some were dressed in short shorts and tank tops — casual attire for a hot June day; others were in suits, carrying satchels and scrolling through emails on their smartphones as they stepped on board the craft.
Forty-six minutes after the boat left the dock in the Rockaways, it was at Pier 11 in Lower Manhattan and the Rockaway denizens who paid the $2 fare to get on the boat, disembarked in the heart of New York City.

With a cavalcade of notable people and an avalanche of blue and red balloons, Delta Airlines officially opened its JFK Airport gateway at Terminal 4 last Friday, just in time for the summer flying season.
Delta CEO Richard Anderson welcomed elected officials, sports stars and heads of foreign airlines, including Virgin’s Richard Branson, to Gate B41 at the end of Delta’s renovated and extended Concourse B — which at some points seems to look more like a mall than an air terminal — for the ceremonial grand opening.
While inside the dry, warm concourse of Terminal 4, officials and Delta employees celebrated the grand opening of the airline’s new JFK Airport gateway, outside dozens of airport service workers marched in the cold drizzle, saying that while Delta Airlines received billions of dollars in subsidies for its new terminal, workers have been left with low pay and little job security.

Councilman Donovan Richards (D-Rosedale), who represents part of the airport and many of the workers who rallied, also attended the protest.

Nevertheless, there were a number Queens-related stories.
Ernie Grunfeld, the greatest basketball player in Forest Hills High School history, was at the lottery as president of the Washington Wizards. Ernie has the unique perspective of having been a former first-round draft choice himself, as he was chosen by the Milwaukee Bucks in 1977, and now is in the position of selecting a player for that honor. I asked him about his memories of being selected by an NBA team after finishing his four years at the University of Tennessee.
