Astoria residents complain more about loud cars and music from open streets waking up their pets at night than the shootings and rise in crime in Astoria.

Why do you hate the 2nd amendment?

Shouldn’t they have the right to bear arms? It’s a shame the right doesn’t believe in the 2nd amendment.

Close Steinway street to cars like they did with almost every other avenue in Astoria so people have more space to run.

Starbucks opened (pre-pandemic) at 4:30 or 5 to cater to customers, including mostly blue-collar workers at that hour. Employees have to get there, and many other early-morning businesses (as well as getting home from late-night businesses). How mad would you be if you couldn’t drive through on your way to work?
