Jan. 3, 2022 By Allie Griffin

A woman was fatally stabbed on New Year’s Day in Astoria in what police said was the first homicide in New York City this year.

The unidentified woman, who is believed to be in her 40s, was found lying unconscious on the sidewalk near the busy intersection of 23rd Street and Broadway at about 8:30 p.m. She had multiple stab wounds, police said.

EMS rushed the victim to Mount Sinai Queens, where she was pronounced dead.

The victim was reportedly spotted by a passer-by on the ground bleeding, according to the New York Post. The area where she was found is along a busy corridor with many local shops and restaurants.

of course there are no arrests. the new DA said he wont be prosecuting anyone. why even bother looking?

There is stupid then there is Fox stupid.

Check Ravens wood houses. NYCHA needs to turned into market housing, housing for disabled and seniors only. Enough already. NYCHA in its current form is a failed experiment.

Idee fixe

Pro tip: your tv remote is a very handy device. It even has a button so you can change channels. It might help you with your unhealthy obsession with FOX NEWS. You are not required to watch it 24/7. If that doesn’t work, then it’s therapy and meds.


No one is surprised. But alternate side street parking has been suspended due a chance of snow Monday, Jan. 3! That is all voters in Astoria care about.
