That homeless guys name is stanley, I won’t put his last name, went to St Mary’s with him in late 60’s, early 70’s. He’s been homeless for at least 30 yrs. Don’t know what happened that he ended up like that but it’s a shame to see someone in that condition. He’s not there mentally and should be committed, and receive medical help

They messed up the roads, narrowed them down, expect more accidents I guess, there are no signs of narrowing roads on west-bound queens blvd approaching the BQE split, what was the point of messing up with queens blvd again?

Not the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Neurological & Wound Healing Center !!! Such a pillar of the community.

Why no news on the half naked homeless man who lives up that block and touches himself while parents walk their kids to the day care nearby? He’s been there for months now.


4 people injured and this is your response? How could this be compared to the other. If you can’t be even slightly sensitive to the situation, don’t respond at all.

Car accident with injured in STABLE condition versus constant sex offender in our neighborhood. Yeah I think the latter is news worthy. Car accidents happen every day. Cry a river elsewhere.
