yeah, right. jewelry stores usually store their valuables in a safe while they are closed for business for this reason alone. why didnt they secure their merchandise?


With christmas a little over three months away, things are only to get worse. Everyone had to spend christmas shopping money during the lockdown. It was christmas in june and august for many during the riots.


Hope is found and given the financial help he needs. So many people are desperate to eat and feed their families.


What’s the big deal? Thanks to defund the police progressives like little Jimmy this guy will be released the same day he’s caught. After all he just needs a loaf of bread!

Has anyone noticed the number of crime related stories on Sunnyside Post has risen quite a bit compared to just a year or two ago?

The city is definitely going in the wrong direction.


@Charles-That’s because the Sunnyside Post has changed its focus to include more stories for Jackson Heights and Astoria. Sunnyside appears to be about the same. I checked the Sunnyside Post going back to one year.
