Drag racing on 39st caused my car to get slammed into & destroyed. The noise is not the only problem.
anyone know what's open today/saturday where i can fetch a drink w/ my sister in the area of queens blvd & 43rd st.?
Package theft season is in full swing so please be vigilant.
Giving Tuesday is around the Corner (Next Week to be exact) and this year I'm supporting The Salvation Army in Astoria Queens. My Goal is simple - to raise $1000.00 with their virtual Kettle Fundraiser. I even have a friend that will match dollar for dollar every donation I receive in my Virtual Kettle - no matter the amount! Would you help me to reach my goal? Just a few examples of how your money can be used: a $5.00 donation can help a child to receive one free music lesson, $25.00 can feed a family of 2 in the Food Pantry for one week or serve 10 hot meals in their soup kitchen, $50.00 can feed a family of 4 in the Food Pantry for one week or serve 20 hot meals in the soup kitchen. Did I also mention they assist with rent, Christmas toys and clothing for children, $10 can help one individual to clean clothing, towels, and toiletries in the Homeless Shower Program. They have so many wonderful programs would you consider a donation today? I have attached the link so you can check out my fundraiser. Thanks for reading! Happy Holidays!
Don't miss it and come and cover it!

***TREASURE HUNT*** Dear readers, it may be weird to post this here, and perhaps it won't be useful at all, but thought I'd give it a try 😓😞💔 ... I lost a stone to a very special family ring I was given for my 15th birthday (I think it was yesterday when I went out for dinner) ...I walked 46th st from 43rd Av...took a walk on Skillman until 52nd St, had dinner in Cafe 52...and returned back through 43rd Ave... I did run couple errands more thorughout the day, but all in Sunnyside walking area/close to where I live ...If anyone by any chance reads this, and happens to find this stone, it's dark pink...should be flat looking like, and measures about 0.4'' x 0.2'' If I get lucky enough ...and someone finds it...I appreciate you could DM ...and I will give cash to you in exchange...this ring is very special to me as it was given to me by my grandma ...so it would really suck to lose it and never find it 💔😞😭 thank you very much!
