A man was stabbed multiple times on a Woodside street last week.
The 25-year-old victim was at the corner of 47th Street and 48th Avenue on May 6 when his assailant approached him at around 7:30 a.m., police say.
Police say the assailant then stabbed the 25-year-old four times with a “cutting instrument”.
The victim went to Elmhurst General Hospital for puncture wounds to the back, and is currently in stable condition, according to police.
The suspect, pictured in the attached photograph, is described as male, Hispanic, and between 25 to 30 years old.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
All calls are strictly confidential.
I dont know shit people. Whoever got a problem with me can come and see me ??????????????
Your name isn’t even Henriquez anymore your divorced stop it
It never changes. This area has been this way since the 80’s.
To day is May 21, 2018 and I just want to let the WOMEN in the neighborhood to be mindful of walking up or down 44th Street (between Qns Blvd and 47th Street, 41st Street to 48th Street and the neighborhood in general. I was stalked this morning by a man who got out of his car and looked like he would have abducted me if no one was watching. Please be careful in the neighborhood. I have been living here for several years and have never experienced this.
South side is horrible. 48st/48ave- 47st/48ave – 48st between qb&48ave horrible. All drugs Terrible area. Don’t comprehend how rents are so high in such a dirty crime ridden area with dumpy housing . What a crock
Easy Drug Money
What yall think????????? Anyone know something??
Denise you live on 46st 48 Avenue if anybody would know something here it’s you
You should ask your son he will know, he’s always hanging out there
And?? I dont know shit.
Who are you?? @Woodside4lyfe
Is sunnyside north of queens blvd much safer? I’m looking for some recommendations of which general area is ok to live from safety perspective. thanks
This whole area is one of the safest in the city, according to the city’s crime stats.
Fudging the stats it’s called. Do you believe everything you read
The city is way better on crime now than it was when I was a kid. You can see that with your own eyes if you’ve been here long enough.
Shit still happens, no doubt, but things are better than they were, whether they’re juking the stats or not.
Always feels that way to me.
Yes north of QB is safer for sure
I have been in Sunnyside for nearly 60 years and the vicinity where this crime took place has always been a seedy magnet for drug dealing and loitering low lives. Tear down the old Mets apartments (now the Cosmopolitans) and put up market and luxury housing. These slums are on very large parcels of land and have always attracted trash and criminal elements like the Erica Menendez who shoved a man on to the tracks of the 7 train at 40th street, back in 2012, killing him.
The “low income” and government supported rent will only increase this type of people. I don’t know why you got downvoted, but landlords should really stop renting to thug-types just because they can get the rent from government. This is why I still like old-school coops, they still check each new tenant.
Any real estate listing by any broker where it says “no board approval required” should be avoided. If you see this, you know the building is a hell hole.
The current affordable housing program is either funded by:
* Tax incentives
* Less zoning restrictions on density/parking/etc
The agreement is that a certain number of units (20%) will be priced for at least 30 years below the market rate value of the unit. So in Sunnyside where the median rent is ~$2000 a month some new units will be priced at around the $1300-$1700 range. These units are means tested, where your household income must be below a certain percentage of the areas median income.
For example: On Queens Boulevard the current height limit for buildings without affordable housing is six stories or around 60 feet, but if they include affordable housing at the 80/20 split, the height limit is increased to eight stories or 80 feet.
Areas below 47 Avenue were NOT rezoned in the recent rezoning. This means that the whole area is still zoned R5 (two story row homes). The R5 zoning means that new development in the area is very unlikely. Housing prices will probably continue to rise in this area as more people fight over a small number of units.
its the only way. gentrify and move the thugs to the far far edge of the city.
“cutting instrument = fruit knife
Many people posted numerous times in this site that area near 48th ave-49th ave around 48th street is a frequent hang out of the troubled type.
There are always questionable looking folks loitering around the barber shop or that bodega at the corner, or the corner across the street.
Heads up to NYPD, if they are not already working on it, both sides of the street, buildings 4712, 4705 and 4515 have security cameras on all corners, hopefully they can get the footage.
There is no 49 ave over there. Go buy a map
That’s not the point, I guess you know the area very well, you must be one of the low life unemployed thugs that hang around the barber shop.
@Me- There are alot of decent hard working people who live “over there”, “the other side of the boulevard”, as it was called when I was growing up or “south side” as the new comers call it. Your post is offensive just like your anti police post and your illly advised support for the new middle school on 48th Street. You still owe the hard working men and women in blue an apology.
hahahahahahaha. Buy a McNally Rand for dumbme
Haha can’t afford a map, dumbme ? Go get a GO FUND “ME”. For a map lol
Maybe you look “questionable” to some and look “the troubled type”….TOO many hard working people live and work in that area FYI.
Stay on 49th ave…it is safer ?
