We demand that you speak out on the massive crime spike throughout our neighborhood in which you Unfortunately represent. You have vanished after your corruption scandal. Remember it’s not
always about changing street names after promiscuous people or creating dog parks for the lonely and frisky
About giving a damn about the neighborhood you represent and if you can’t do it step the heck down immediately!!!!!!!!!!!

I was monitoring the 108th on my scanner that morning, and the action was at QB & 52nd Street, with the NYPD Helicopter over the Calvary cemetery. They were talking about 1 DOA at the scene and the other taken to EGH. Shortly there after 3 o4 guys were taken into custody at 50th St & QB at the gas station. This is the first time I saw any new about this story. All the major paper & TV quiet about it.

Wow this is crazy all the stories I am hearing.. Don’t talk unless you know the truth!! Rip edison hope you’re okay viejo!! Karmas a bitch!


I live a building over. I was out there Saturday morning (after it happened) walking my dog. I have been searching online since trying to get more info than I did that day. You and Newsday are the only ones saying anything about it and Newdsday said it happened at 9pm Saturday which is obviously not true.


I grew up in these buildings and know it’s always been kinda hot on the corners. Recently its been pretty calm, but trouble around this hood fluctuates. I expected it to die down, maybe completely, with all the gentrifications, but this proves it can still be dangerous. It was much worse back in the 80s and 90s.

And, by the way, although many have referred to this as Sunnyside it’s technically Woodside (on the border with Sunnyside). It’s in the 11377 area code.


I saw them taking one guy out on a stretcher at the scene but it was a lot later, probably around 8:30 – 9 a.m. Crime scene was set up there just about all day, and there was a lot more squad cars seen driving through the neighborhood the rest of the day (compared with the zero you usually see) Guess it takes a murder for the 108 to patrol this part of Sunnyside.
