Hello Astoria! During the Summer we created a Podcast series about our guests and their Favorite Films. Now that we are a 501c3 Public Filmmakers Charity we need your support. Not necessarily money. A review of our podcast would be better. Those reviews can help us retrieve sponsorship from local business.

Hi everyone, This may be a long shot but I lost my Dita rose gold optical frames between 30th avenue/34th Street and 30th Avenue 37th Street. I was on my way to brunch with my husband and they fell out of my jacket. I was heading towards 30th Avenue and passed by Ovelia, Kal, Domines, Shady Lady, and crossed the street at 37th where Gyroworld, Antika, and Pink Nori are and got in line at Queens Comfort around 1:00 pm-2:00 pm. They are inside a black Chanel glasses case with a white cloth. I am hoping whoever found them can return them as they are my primary vision glasses and I cannot see without them. I am happy to give you a reward but please return them. Unfortunately due to Covid-19 I don't have vision insurance and replacing these are going to cost a lot out of pocket 😞 Please help me and return them if you found them on the ground.
Just thought I'd share what another NYC neighborhood has managed to pull off.
