Does anyone know if the small claims courts are open?
Thought I would share some fun news! My fiancé and I are Sunnyside residents (right next door to Astoria) and my fiancé started this initiative to support our household and continue his creativity from home after losing his job as a chef due to the pandemic! He will create recipes based on what you have in your pantry right now to help you avoid going to the grocery store but still create something fun and delicious! He also started virtual classes! It made the Today Show! Thought it was pretty cool! @matt_chefmigs is his insta!
Shoemaker on 28th street and almost corner of 23 ave will be open next week. Just dropped off my favorite winter boots and shoes for a little TLC. He very much appreciated when I paid him cash for his work. He raised his hands to the sky in appreciation. 🥺 Let's do our part for these small businesses in our community. They are the soul of our neighborhood. Hard working, good people. Phone (718) 726-1294. address 23-04 28th Street.
