    Sunnyside Yuppies and Hipsters, we know you like our chic and trend neighborhood but Sunnyside is more than just a little hot spot for Mexican or Turkish food. The area is FLOODED with children and its getting worse. We have no real programs for the kids. There's no day care options and worse there's not many summer school programs.

    Create some damn jobs and start building some centers already.

    Ruben,

    Watch out, there's a hipster under your pillow with an ironic t-shirt and skinny jeans waiting to throw a mocca latte at you.

    More taxpayer money going to waste. The school system is terrible & Barack Hussein Obama cares more about JVB and hi Gay friendly marches than the kids.

    a lot of these kids are bussed in from other neighbourhoods,there are not that many young kids left considering it now costs at least 1400 for a one bedroom apartment !

    GB is right, probably most of the kids coming to PS 11 in Woodside are being driven from other areas. Traffic jam every morning and afternoon and again at 5PM for the after school center .

    Need a traffic cop not a lonely crossing guard ....

    It's sad how little people who don't have kids in the public schools know about them. First of all, did you all see the statement in the article that PS 11 is so overcrowded that it has 10 trailers in the yard? Trailers are meant to be a temporary relief for overcrowding, not a permanent solution. Furthermore, PS 11, as with nearly all primary schools, is locally zoned for children who live in the vicinity of the school - therefore, children are not bused in "from other neighborhoods." If children are bused, it's because they live more than 1/2 mile away (for those in K through 2nd or 3rd grade) or they are getting on private buses to drop them at after-school care or directly at their door (unlike school buses which might drop them a block or two away from home). The NYC public school system is not "terrible" - I have 3 children who have gone or are going through the system and they have had wonderful teachers and programs available to them. Stop reading the editorial page in The New York Post and actually talk to some public school parents for a change.
