A Yonkers, NY man has been arrested in connection with last weekend's attack on a mother and her three children outside the Boulevard Family Residence, formerly the Pan American Hotel, in Elmhurst.
A young man from Yonkers allegedly decided to beat up a United Airlines employee at LaGuardia Airport Wednesday night rather than show a ticket in order to pick up his luggage.
Police say this man allegedly attempted to sexually assault a woman in front of her children on Sunday.
A mother and her three children were the alleged victims of a startling attack at the hands of a man who posed as a taxi driver.
According to police, a Hispanic male in his 40s picked up a 26-year-old mother and her three children, ranging from one to five years old, at 207th Street in Manhattan and drove them to Elmhurst around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday.
When Community Board 9 Chairman Ralph Gonzalez took an informal poll of the audience at last Thursday night’s meeting on the City Line pedestrian plaza, the results required a recount.
First he asked supporters to stand, then he asked opponents. The end result? Almost a tie, roughly a dozen on either side.
The NYPD nabbed the suspect in several auto thefts in South Queens this week.
In an email sent out to residents in the community, 106th Precinct Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Jeremy Schiff said the arrest of Richard Hobbs, 27, of Lindenwood occurred after his officers responded to the theft of an unattended running vehicle in Ozone Park Monday morning. Officers soon apprehended Hobbs, whom Schiff said police are familiar with.
The Queens Chapter of the National Action Network had numerous representatives on Aug. 23 during a march in Staten Island to protest the death of Eric Garner while he was being arrested in July.
On Monday, the Rev. Phil Craig, president of the chapter, asked more than 60 members what should come next.
Leroy Comrie’s message to voters, as he tries to unseat state Sen. Malcolm Smith this September, is a simple one.
“I’m not going to Albany as a typical freshman.”
Call it a gateway toy.
Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Rockaway Park) wants a stencil toy removed from store shelves because he’s afraid it will promote graffiti vandalism and ultimately more serious crimes.
A large group of mostly young immigrants gathered in Diversity Plaza in Jackson Heights to protest the actions of police in Ferguson, Mo.
“Ain’t no power like the power of the people, cuz the power of the people don’t stop,” almost 100 people chanted.
Events of recent weeks show that we New Yorkers have reason to be proud of our city, and of ourselves. That does not mean we don’t also have cause for concern.
A tragedy occurred July 17 on Staten Island when Eric Garner died, apparently of a heart attack, while resisting arrest for an alleged petty crime. Police and emergency service personnel stood idly by and let him die, when there was a chance he could have been saved.
The quiet streets of Ridgewood, Glendale and Middle Village were the scenes of multiple attempted burglaries and even a shooting over the last eight days.
On Wednesday, Aug. 20, a Middle Village resident spotted three suspicious individuals peering into vehicles parked along Juniper Valley Road shortly after 4 a.m.
At least it isn’t the violent kind of crime spree.
An unknown number of suspects have been stealing a substantial amount of tires and rims from the cars of Kew Gardens residents over the last year, enough to require the 102nd Precinct to distribute fliers to drivers throughout the area.
It’s not unusual for groups to endorse candidates, but when one not only throws its support but also announces so strongly that it’s putting its money where its mouth is, that’s a bit less common.
That’s what happened Monday when the New York League of Conservation Voters’ political action committee endorsed incumbent state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside) for re-election to the 11th District.
It was 1914.
The officers were beginning their first tour of duty at a time when in Europe, war was raging between monarchial powers. China was adapting to life for the first time without an emperor and Russia still had a tsar. Around the country, for the first time ever, candidates were vying for voters’ support in U.S. Senate elections — though not yet from women.
Seeking to achieve in court what it could not get in arbitration, the United Federation of Teachers last week filed a lawsuit asking a judge to rule that teachers do not have to show their lesson plans to school administrators.
The suit, filed in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, grows out of an arbitrator’s ruling in May that while all teachers must create lesson plans, what they contain will be left up to them, according to multiple published reports. The arbitrator refused a union bid to also rule that principals and other supervisors would not even get to review the plans, prompting the suit.
When we Baby Boomers were growing up the changing of the seasons from summer to fall meant two things: (a) the start of a new school year and (b) the various TV networks launching their new primetime programs.
The NYPD is warning people of two scams they could possibly become a victim of. One of them is an EZPass phishing scam and the other a hotel credit card scam.
The recent comments by UFT President Michael Mulgrew that the union supports the upcoming caravan over the Verrazano Bridge to protest the death of Eric Garner are totally unwarranted.
First of all, who is he to state that the UFT is supporting this action? If he or any individual person in the UFT wants to take part, that is okay. They have that right to protest peacefully. What is not OK is that he gives the impression that the entire UFT is in full support of this.
Our police are the best, and there is no reason for Mulgrew, with his asinine comments, to drive a wedge between the UFT and the PBA. Patrick Lynch was 100 percent correct in what he said in response to what Mr. Mulgrew said. I, as a retired UFT member, am angry and incensed by the comments of Mr. Mulgrew.
It is time for a change in the leadership of the UFT, the sooner, the better.
A 32-year-old man was killed early Monday morning in a hit-and-run collision in Maspeth.
According to authorities, Karoll Grzegorczyk, of Ridgewood, was attempting to cross Fresh Pond Road in the middle of the block between 60th Drive and Eliot Avenue when he was struck by a dark-colored sedan traveling southbound on Fresh Pond Road shortly before 3 a.m.
Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, has said it is “absolutely ridiculous” that United Federation of Teachers President Michael Mulgrew “would waste his members’ dues to get involved with a march that has nothing to do with teachers or his union.” I wholeheartedly concur.
The UFT under Mulgrew will be co-sponsoring the march on Staten Island on Aug. 23, with three other groups. The email sent out to its members reads, “March for justice for victims of police brutality.”
This statement is a complete insult to every man and woman of the NYPD, who defend our streets from the criminal element. The efforts the UFT in this matter are just ludicrous. What are we teaching our children, that it is OK to disobey a cop’s order and to resist arrest?
