Very good Fox News Channel style (fair & balanced) reporting. However, I'm surprised that you didn't mention Mayor Lindsey's dismal 1969 performance. It cost him the GOP primary & if hadn't been a 3 way race it would cost him the election. Al Roker's Tweet ("Prediction: 1 term") should be taken seriously. By the way, here in Phoenix, it's 75 degrees....3 weeks ago

You ain't seen nuthin' yet. Kerry has promised that if Israel and the Palestinian Authority don't reach an agreement by next spring he will unilaterally impose one. Please refer to The Book of Daniel and The Book of Revelations. Confess & repent because Judgement Day is closer than you think.3 months ago
The last paragraph says it all. I hate to repeat myself, but elections have consequences. You people gave the rdical left an overwhelming majority & now you have one party government. I lived in Bayside from 1991-2000; I loved it. I belonged to the same church as the Keil family. They were great people. I was a Keil Brothers customer; it was a pleasure shopping there. I departed NYC 8 years ago & I've never regretted it. "Preserve your memories. they're all that's left to you now". Go south, go west, go before it's too late. Otherwise, I hope you're enjoying all the "hopey, changey" stuff. The Era Of BO continues.4 months ago
Kudos to Angela for her healthy skepticism. My advice to you, Angela, is that as long as you insist on remaining in the Northeast you can expect to be ignored. The climate here in AZ is near perefection right now & the taxes are low. Because you live where you do & you aparently can see through Meng, Schumer, Di Blasio, Cuomo, & BO, you have no representation. If you seek better climates (political & weather) you'll be less frustrated.
P.S. Low turn out? Don't blame the weather or complacency. How about disgust & despair with corruption at every level of government?4 months ago
Elections have consequences. Good luck, NYC. You now have one party dominance (just like in the third world). Twenty years of Giuliani & Bloomberg gave you safe streets & renewal across all 5 boroughs. Progressives have given us BO Care. How's that working out for you? Do you still love BO? Wait 'til you see what an unoposed progressive administration will do to you. Hint: Remember Lindsay, Beame, Dinkins? Remember 2000 homicides annually? Go watch "Taxi Driver" again. By the way, when you get disgusted (& eventually you will) if you decide to migrate to a red state, leave your toxic failed politics behin, please, because the red states are doing just fine without them.4 months ago
Keil Brothers forever! A great store owned & operated by a great family; once belonged to the same church as they did. I had a buddy who lived on Central Park South; every spring he came to Bayside to shop Keil brothers for his spring planting.4 months ago
Delayed Sandy relief?! It's almost a year now. How could Sandy victims perceive a shutdown since they're still waiting a year later. The House of Representatives has passed apropriations for all federal agencies except BO Care which no one wants. Tell the Senate to pass the House apropriations bills & get BO to sign them & then Sandy victims can continue to hurry up & wait. And since BO illegally delayed implementation of the employer mandate how about signing legislation to delay implementation of the individual mandate? As it is the BO Care exchanges are impossible to acess to begin with. Is common sense beyond the grasp of Harry Reid & BO?5 months ago
Property rights are more important than emotions or specious historical claims. If the owner wishes to sell & a church congregation wishes to buy, so be it. Nice "journalistic" manipulation with photos of children & animals ( tough acts to follow). If you like horses so much move on to the zoned equestrian community of Queen Creek, AZ. Otherwise accept the fact that Queens has changed. If you want to have a Western Riding Club, then go west (Oh, wait a minute that would mean leaving the Blue State bubble & facing reality).6 months ago
In the '90's I was fortunate enough to live in the Alley Pond Co-op. I recall that one Sunday afternoon in 1995(?) many emergency vehicles converged on Union Tpke & the GCP. I couldn't see much from the living room window so I tuned my radio to News Radio 88 which informed me that a light aircraft had crash landed on the Cleraview Expressway at the GCP/Union Tpke/Clearview junction. The pilot had wa;lked away & no injuries were reported but it really interupted a quiet Sunday afternoon in my Bayside neighborhood.7 months ago
