This is a new endeavor by a good friend and all-around very thoughtful fellow named Dennis. Give it a watch— compelling stuff!

As seen from Court Square. This is not a great photo— but it is a beautiful sight nonetheless!
I am not an Astoria resident, much less a constituent of Ms. Simotasas. However, on July 2nd and July second only, that might have to change.
Racks. That’s pretty gnarly. I would even go so far to say it makes “Hooters” seem classy by comparison. So it goes.
In closing I would like to propose the following:
- a group of Williamsburg and Greenpoint residents be assembled
- said group attends this hearing
- at this convocation this group proposes that exchange for “Racks” we will give them 3-4 of our more problematic “eating and drinking establishments”
This is a fair trade if you ask me. Pervs in exchange for public pissers and pukers. Anyone care to get the ball rolling and suggest an establishment or two we can re-gift to our comrades in Queens?
UPDATE: Naturally I had to brig this choice item to the attention of my colleague in Queens. Here’s Crappy’s take:
It’s not steps away from anything. It’s in an industrial area. She’s full of crap. And Astoria people aren’t going to Harlem to testify about anything. Not to mention this is illegally posted on public property.
You can (and should) read these posts authored by Queens Crap about this situation by clicking here and here. You see, it would appear that the real interests being protected here are those of a developer who has a stalled “mixed use” development nearby. I know. Shocking.

Coming at you from Meeker Avenue and Graham Avenue. A labor dispute? Anyone?
Props/Credit: Go to citizen journalist Robin for the tip-off. Thanks!

This is what one citizen/tipster beheld at approximately 5:00 p.m. today. He/she did not have much in the way of information— but posed an excellent question:
To whom do I inquire about matters such as this?
That’s easy to answer:
- The 94th Precinct’s Community Affairs Office! They can be reached via telephone at: (718) 383-5298
Secondarily if any of you, gentle readers of Community Board 1, have been a victim of a crime (and I sincerely hope this does not happen)— even if it is as mundane as your car being broken into— file a report with the proper precinct (90th or 94th), forward your report number, a description of the incident, any pertiment photos/documentation, etc. to Community Board 1: firstname.lastname@example.org
Although the Community Board has a committee mostly (it is a long story) dedicated to criminal matters/activity, the reality is they are simply issued a sheet of statistics outlining what crimes have come to pass on any given month. That’s it. Don’t be a “statistic”: say something to our Community Board. If we as citizens do not speak up, they cannot follow-up. It really is that simple.
NOTE: The 94th Precinct Community Council does not convene over the summer— otherwise I’d offer this as an avenue to air any/all concerns as well.
