Summer Wins: Hamilton Beach Baby Parade Marks the End of the Season By Michael V. Cusenza The Hamilton Beach Baby Parade, the long running, end-of-summer tradition in which area families gather at 104 th Street to build their best floats that compete for prizes, once again did not disappoint—even if the weather did at times on Sunday. Hosted by the New Hamilton Beach Civic Association, the unique celebration has become a showcase of inspiration, hard work, and creativity as float-building skills are tested across three categories: “Most Humorous,” “Most Original,” and “Ragamuffin.” “I had a great time this weekend participating in the Hamilton Beach Baby Parade, a community event for over 60 years!” State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) wrote on his The Baby Parade has been a fun summer event for area families for more than 60 years. Facebook page.

State Searching for Management Firm to Supervise JFK Redevelopment Program Contractors By Forum Staff Governor Andrew Cuomo recently announced a request for proposals to solicit bids to provide expert professional construction management for the John F. Kennedy International Airport Redevelopment Program on an “as-needed” basis. The RFP, released today by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, aims to secure a qualified firm to assist in the oversight of the performance of all contractors for the entire JFK Redevelopment Program. The selected firm also will provide construction management and coordination services with other ongoing construction projects related to the program. According to the administration, the scope of the work for the RFP includes performing multi-discipline civil, structural, electrical, traffic, and mechanical engineering, and construction management and support services required for the program. Projects include the major terminals, design-build construction contracts for new parking garages and substations, as well as construction of elevated roadways, utility infrastructure improvements, airfield modifications including work on new taxiways, demolition of buildings, and extensive management of traffic during construction.

Cuomo announced last October that the JFK Redevelopment Community Advisory Council—composed of elected officials, community boards, nonprofit organizations, civic organizations, and clergy leaders and chaired by Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and U.S. Rep. Greg Meeks (D-Jamaica)—has been working with the Port Authority to expand community outreach efforts that are already underway, ensuring that the project solicits ongoing feedback from local stakeholders as well as provides opportunities for local businesses, Minority and Women-owned Business Enter-

prises and job seekers. The Port Authority has noted that it has encouraged not only qualified MWBE firms to respond to the RFP, but also MWBE subcontractors to partner with prime contractors. “As we continue to advance the transformation of JFK Airport into a modern, world-class transit hub, we want to ensure that we have a proven partner on our side to help oversee and assess the progress we are making,” Cuomo said. “JFK is the international entry into New York State, and to enhance this major infrastructural undertaking, we are looking for man-

agement firms capable of executing the vision we have laid out.” Cuomo’s multi-billion-dollar JFK Vision Plan calls for an overhaul of the airport’s eight fragmented terminal sites into one unified hub. This will be done, according to the State, by demolishing old terminals, utilizing vacant space, modernizing on-airport infrastructure, and creating a multi-tiered cargo modernization program, while incorporating the latest in passenger amenities and technological innovations. As part of the plan, JetBlue and JFK Millennium Partners are constructing a $3 billion, 1.2 million-square-foot terminal on the airport’s north side that will connect to the airline’s existing Terminal 5. Additionally, a new $7 billion, 2.9 million-square-foot terminal on the airport's south side will occupy the area where the existing Terminals 1 and 2 are located, in addition to the area left vacant when Terminal 3 was demolished in 2014. The new south side terminal will be developed by the Terminal One Group, a consortium of four international airlines—Lufthansa, Air France, Japan Airlines and Korean Air Lines. American Airlines and British Airways will invest $344 million over the next three years to renovate Terminal 8. And in May, the TWA Hotel located just outside Terminal 5 opened its doors to the public.


One Dead, Two Injured after Drive-By Shooting near Richmond Hill Club

The incident took place after a verbal altercation in front of Mazi nightclub.

By Michael V. Cusenza One man was killed and two of his companions were wounded early Monday morning after the trio was shot as they walked to their vehicle parked near a Richmond Hill lounge, according to police and published reports. Mohammed Uddin, 28, was shot in the chest around 4:30 a.m. near 130th Street and 92nd Avenue,

steps from Mazi nightclub. Uddin, a Brooklyn resident, was rushed by emergency medical personnel to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he succumbed to his injuries shortly after arrival. One of Uddin’s two unidentified friends took several slugs to the chest as well; he was rolled into Jamaica Hospital minutes after Uddin. He was listed in critical condition.

Shooting victim Mohammed Uddin was rushed to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he later died.

Uddin’s other buddy was in stable condition at New York-Presbyterian Queens Hospital after being shot in both legs. According to investigators, a verbal altercation between two parties erupted just outside Mazi. Uddin and his friends walked away toward their car when a black sedan pulled up next to them, unloaded countless rounds, and sped off. Police have indicated that there were

three men inside the black auto. No arrests have been made. Residents of that mostly industrial stretch of 130th Street described living in a violent atmosphere. “Every weekend we have incidents over here,” Noel Maldonado, 28, told the New York Daily News. “There’s always people getting stabbed, run over, fighting.” According to the latest available

City Police Department statistics, overall crime is down in the 102nd Precinct, which serves Richmond Hill, Kew Gardens, Woodhaven, and the northern part of Ozone Park. Year to date, crime is down 21 percent, compared to the same time period in 2018, in the South Queens command. Additionally, shooting incidents are down 33 percent, and the number of shooting victims are down 50 percent, year to date.

Crooked Realtor Gets Six Years in Prison By Forum Staff A former licensed real estate saleswoman living in Richmond Hill has been sentenced to up to six years in prison for stealing nearly $600,000 in payments from prospective homeowners for the purported “short sale” of several Queens and Brooklyn properties in 2015, Acting Queens District Attorney John Ryan announced Friday. Reshmi Maharaj, 53, was convicted last month of second-degree grand larceny, first-degree scheme to defraud, and second- and thirddegree grand larceny. According to trial testimony, beginning in December 2014, Maharaj accepted a number of deposits, totaling $55,500, from a prospecPhoto Courtesy of Google tive buyer for the purchase of a home on Lef- In April 2015, a prospective buyer gave Maharaj four checks, totaling $34,500, for a home she presented as a ferts Boulevard in Richmond Hill. In April “short sale” on Sutter Avenue in South Ozone Park.

2015, a second prospective buyer gave Maharaj four checks, totaling $34,500, for a home she presented as a “short sale” on Sutter Avenue in South Ozone Park. This same buyer then paid Maharaj an additional lump sum of $130,000 in order to secure the purchase of the property. Maharaj repeated this scam several more times, collecting deposits totaling $176,200, for a home on 122nd Street in Jamaica and for “short-sale” home purchases on Murdock Avenue in Queens Village and on Avenue K in Brooklyn. In 2016, Maharaj again pocketed a total of $199,000 from a third prospective buyer, who was interested in a property on 115th Street in Richmond Hill. According to trial testimony, despite having paid large sums of money to Maharaj, the victims were never allowed to move into the homes. Instead, Maharaj spent the $594,700 in funds she had received on vacations and personal expenses.

Sarter Still on the Lam By Michael V. Cusenza A Howard Beach man wanted for allegedly brutally beating his live-in girlfriend remains a fugitive from justice even after area detectives recently turned up the heat by using social media to enlist the public’s help in locating him. According to police, a felony assault charge awaits Peter Sarter following an alleged domestic incident last month that left his significant other bruised and battered. According to authorities, on Sunday, Aug. 18, around 4 p.m., officers responded to 164th Avenue and 98th Street, near the Sarter residence, and encountered a woman who identified herself as Sarter’s girlfriend. The 46-year-old then told cops that Sarter struck her with a broom, grabbed her by her hair, threw her up against his vehicle and pro- Peter Sarter

ceeded to punch her nearly two-dozen times. Sarter then fled the scene. Investigators assigned to the 106th Precinct splashed Sarter’s mug shot on Twitter and Facebook. A woman posting on the social media platform under the name “Kimberly Sarter” wrote, “A disgrace that the 106 would even post this without any proof or evidence that this occurred. Apparently you can just call them, make up a story and the next day your [sic] on FB with a warrant! What a disgrace, but I guess it’s because her and her kids are informants for them... so she can just say whatever she wants and f**k with other peoples [sic] lives!” Anyone with information regarding Sarter’s whereabouts is asked to call (718) 845-2261 or (800) 577-TIPS; reference case #2019-1657.

The Nicholas Scoppetta Children’s Center in Kips Bay operates 24 hours a day, temporarily housing children and youth who are awaiting foster care placement.

By Forum Staff The City Administration for Children’s Services recently unveiled plans for a multi-sensory room at the Nicholas Scoppetta Children’s Center in Manhattan, which, according to ACS Commissioner David Hansell, will better serve youth in foster care who have autism and other developmental or cognitive delays. Hansell noted that the new ACS sensory room will include a variety of sensory features, including: • Solar Projector and laser stars: Projectors and lighting can promote calm and comfort through visual engagement. The changing of shapes and colors may help youth relax. • Aroma diffuser: This can stimulate the sense of smell and provide a calming element for children. • Bouncy loungers and crash mats: These can help with proprioception and sense of bal-

ance. Bouncing and jumping can help students with vestibular challenges. • Bean bag chairs: Bean bag chairs help children with proprioceptive issues and provide deep pressure stimulation which can be calming and comforting to children. • Gel floor pads: When children touch or step on the pads, the different colored gel shifts around; this encourages visual processing and sensory stimulation. • Tactile Blocks: The feeling of these blocks in a child’s hands can be calming and therapeutic. According to ACS, across the country, approximately 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder by the age of 8. Research suggests that sensory issues often accompany autism, which means that some children with autism may be hyper-sensitive to certain types of sights, touch, smells, and more. The sensory room will be available for use in fall 2019.

Area Pols Denounce Rockaway Hate-Graffiti

A swastika accompanied racial epithets and “Heil Hitler” and “gas chamber” on the walls of a playground at the Silver Gull Beach Club in Breezy Point.

By Michael V. Cusenza Outraged area elected officials quickly denounced two alarming incidents over the Labor Day weekend in Rockaway in which racist and anti-Semitic graffiti was scrawled on beach club property in Breezy Point and in the sand on a beach in Belle Harbor. On Friday, a swastika accompanied racial epithets and “Heil Hitler” and “gas chamber” on the walls of a playground at the Silver Gull Beach Club on Beach 193rd Street. A couple of days later, more anti-Semitic messages were etched into the sand on a Belle Harbor shore. “I am utterly disgusted and outraged by the blatant acts of anti-Semitism and white supremacism that took place in my district this weekend. Racism and hate have no place in our city. We must ensure whoever is responsible for this vandalism is brought to justice,” City Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park) said on Monday. “Queens is the most diverse county in the world. And it is that diversity that makes us strong. I’m proud that Queens residents from all backgrounds and all political persuasions have come together to denounce these hateful and cowardly acts.” Governor Andrew Cuomo said, “I am disgusted by the anti-Semitic symbols and racist graffiti found at the Silver Gull’s playground. Enough is enough. Every single elected official in this State—Democrat and Republican—must come together to denounce these continued acts of hatred and attempts to intimidate and terrorize. We must also call these vile acts what they are— they are hate crimes and they are illegal. Let

me be very clear: we have zero tolerance for hate of any kind in New York. I am directing the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to assist the United States Park Police’s investigation into this despicable act to ensure the cowards responsible are held accountable to the fullest extent of the law.” State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) characterized the vandalism as “crimes of hate, plain and simple. Anti-Semitic rhetoric has once again reared its ugly head and has reached our neighborhood on the Rockaway Peninsula. I denounce these terrible acts and I commend Gov. Cuomo for sending the State Hate Crimes Task Force to investigate this incident. As the world’s most diverse borough, we in Queens need to come together and let everyone know that hate has no place in our communities.” Assemblywoman Stacey Pheffer Amato (D-Howard Beach) added, “I was horrified and disgusted to learn of not only one, but two incidents in our community this weekend where Nazi imagery and anti-Semitic graffiti were discovered. The fact that these images were discovered means that there is a systematic attempt to intimidate this community. We must continue to demonstrate that our love and commitment to our community is stronger than their attempt to instill fear and intimidation. We must stand up together against this bigotry and intolerance. “I am working with the NYC Parks Department, NYPD, and National Parks Service to make sure whoever is responsible is brought to justice,” Pheffer Amato continued. “This will not stand.”

EDITORIAL Green Peace? Just a couple of months ago, in this space, we wrote—yet again—about the pervasive and perpetually dangerous problem of cars idling at all hours of the day and night along a stretch of the eastbound Nassau Expressway between Howard Beach and John F. Kennedy International Airport. Here’s another persistent predicament—an eyesore that has been around just as long as the idling autos. The maintenance of Frank M. Charles Memorial Park. Here’s how one anonymous— and obviously exasperated—resident put it in an impassioned missive to the Queens Crap blog. “It was three years ago when I sent you an expose on Frank Charles Park and the lousy jog the National Park Service does there. I also wrote to NPS and the local papers and contacted the local politicians about the conditions there. Well nothing has changed, we see the same dead trees and dead branches directly above where people walk and sit. The bathroom only takes one

man and one woman at a time in a park that has a playground, tennis courts, ball fields, picnic tables and a beach. The beach accumulates trash everyday from the tides and from some beach goers and needs to be cleaned

on a regular basis. The beach has serious erosion and picnic tables there are unusable. “Why have these conditions been allowed to continue for so long? The NPS says they are underfunded and understaffed. The

politicians say they know there are problems and will see what they can do. Why can't obvious safety problems like dead trees be at least addressed? If someone is killed or injured and sues for millions of dollars where is the money going

to come from us the people who pay taxes. Howard Beach is a nice community and I'm sure people pay plenty of taxes and this is New York the biggest city in the USA so why are we not getting treated better by our government? “The National Park Service has shown they cannot operate a community park at the standards the NYC Parks can and should turn over control of the park to the city.NYC Parks are usually well maintained and they are have more experience with operating a park and have created many beautiful parks within the city. “Hope it doesn’t take someone dying before something is done but sadly that seems to be.” Kudos to the great people of the Charles Park Conservancy, and the community groups that truly care, like the Howard Beach Lindenwood Civic Association, that make it their business to tend to their beloved green space several times a year. The National Park Service could learn a thing or two from them.

Alleged ISIS-Supporter Charged with Planning Knife Attacks at Popular Borough Sites By Forum Staff An East Elmhurst man has been arrested for planning knife attacks at key borough locations, federal prosecutors announced Friday. Awais Chudhary, 19, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Pakistan, has been charged with attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, more commonly known as ISIS, a designated foreign terrorist organization. As alleged in the criminal complaint, in August 2019, Chudhary communicated to undercover law enforcement officers through text messaging that he planned to conduct a stabbing or bombing attack on behalf of ISIS. Chudhary also wanted to record his attack to inspire others to commit similar acts of violence. Chudhary identified the pedestrian bridges over the Grand Central Parkway to the Flushing Bay Promenade and the area of the World’s Fair Marina as locations for the attack. On Aug. 23, Chudhary told an undercover agent that he intended to use a knife “because that’s what he knows,” but if the undercover agent could instruct him on how to build a bomb, he would consider using an explosive device at a “mini-bridge over a busy road with many cars.” On the same day, Chudhary texted another undercover

Chudhary allegedly identified the area of the World’s Fair Marina in Flushing as a location for the attack.

agent a screenshot of a document entitled “Islamic State,” with the subheadings: “Places to Strike,” “The Ideal Knife” and “Knives to Avoid.” The instructions included a diagram of the human body with directions where to stab a victim. Chudhary also sent the undercover agent videos of pedestrian bridges over the Grand Central Parkway, and stated that he

was considering throwing explosives over the fencing at vehicles passing below. The complaint also alleges that Chudhary conducted multiple reconnaissance trips to the targeted locations. On Aug. 24, Federal Bureau of Investigation agents surveilled Chudhary enter the Flushing Bay Promenade in the vicinity of 27th Avenue and Ditmars

Boulevard and take videos and photos with his cellphone of various locations, as well as the World’s Fair Marina, a nearby gas station, a Dunkin’ Donuts, and a security camera near the donut shop. “[T]he only photos Chudhary will be featured in are the ones taken in our prisoner processing room prior to his arrival in federal prison,” quipped FBI New York Assistant Director-in-Charge Bill Sweeney, Jr. Between Aug. 25 and Aug. 26, Chudhary allegedly ordered a tactical knife, a mask, gloves and a cellphone chest and head strap from Amazon to facilitate his recording of the attack. Chudhary was arrested Thursday as he attempted to retrieve the items from a borough Amazon establishment. “Awais Chudhary had accepted the call from ISIS to kill fellow New Yorkers in the city he called home,” added City Police Commissioner Jim O’Neill. “He had carefully planned, conducted reconnaissance, picked a target, and was in the process of obtaining the weapon. All he has left to do was to strike. The FBI agents and NYPD detectives of the [Joint Terrorism Task Force] should be commended for the disruption of this plot. Their work almost certainly saved lives.” If convicted, Chudhary faces a maximum sentence of 20 years’ imprisonment.

City Planning Commission Approves Proposal to Replace Rikers Island Complex with Borough-based Jails By Michael V. Cusenza The City Planning Commission Tuesday approved the de Blasio administration’s proposal to shutter Rikers Island by 2026 and replace it with a smaller network of borough-based jails. The audacious strategy now heads to the City Council for final approval. “With today’s vote, we are one step closer to closing Rikers Island and creating a smaller, safer, fairer jail system,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said of Tuesday’s 9-3 tally. According to the administration, if the City’s land-use application is approved by the council: it will allow the City to close the jails on Rikers Island and replace existing borough facilities in Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, and Manhattan by 2026; it will reduce the City’s current operating jail-system capacity by nearly 60 percent and reduce the current total jail-system capacity (including non-operating facilities) by more than two-thirds by 2026; and the City’s jail system would be reduced to four from 11 active facilities citywide. In February 2018, de Blasio and

Rendering of a borough-based jail facility.

City Council Speaker Corey Johnson agreed to a single public review process for the four proposed sites. These locations together will provide off-island space for 5,000 detainees, and will include the three existing DOC facilities in Queens, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, as well as a new site on the grounds of a former City Police Department tow pound in the Bronx. The World’s Borough site is the

Queens Detention Center at 12602 82nd Ave. in Kew Gardens. According to the administration, the City would demolish the existing facility and replace it with a modern one. The new jail would have housing units for detainees, programming and recreational space, and a new above-ground public parking facility. On the ground floor there would be publicly-accessible community space.

Critics of the Borough-based Jail System proposal are leery of the new facilities and the seemingly breakneck pace that has been implemented to get them up and running. (The mayor and then-Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito first announced the 10-year timeline to close Rikers in March 2017.) Those opponents turned out in droves for Tuesday’s CPC hearing and vote.

“No new jails! Close Rikers now!” they chanted, according to a New York Post report. That same story noted that that seven commission appointees who serve at the pleasure of the mayor gave the plan the green light; but three of the five appointees selected by the borough presidents voted No—including Raj Rampershad, a Richmond Hill native and former chairman of Community Board 9 who was appointed to the CPC by Borough President Melinda Katz, a passionate opponent of the City’s proposal. “Reforming our city’s jails system is too critical a mission to take on without adequate community engagement or proper planning, as we must strive to avoid recreating the same atmosphere of violence and dehumanization found on Rikers Island upon four new facilities in neighborhoods across the city,” Katz wrote in June in her official recommendation of disapproval. The Council Subcommittee on Landmarks, Public Siting and Maritime Uses has scheduled a public hearing on the plan for Thursday, Sept. 5, at 10 a.m. at City Hall.

Safety Lacking near Kosciuszko: Stringer

Governor Cuomo toured the new Kosciuszko last week.

By Michael V. Cusenza As Gov. Andrew Cuomo recently basked in the afterglow of the new Kosciuszko Bridge—completed Thursday four years ahead of schedule and on budget— City Comptroller Scott Stringer was busy penning a letter to the City Department of Transportation, spotlighting what he has characterized as a lack of protected bike lanes and walking paths on the streets leading up to the span in Maspeth and Greenpoint, Brooklyn. The comptroller’s missive to DOT Commissioner Polly Trottenberg requests further information on the infrastructure build-out and mitigation measures that NYC DOT plan to implement that would protect the safety of both cyclists and pedestrians on and around the newly opened bridge. The letter also requests a full accounting of why upgraded bike and pedestrian infrastructure was not ready on the first day of the opening of the bridge that straddles Newtown Creek and connects Queens and Brooklyn. “Just as no transportation department would open up a highway before constructing the on- and off-ramps, it is utterly baffling that a new bike and pedestrian path could be introduced without sufficient connecting infrastructure – on Day One,” Stringer said. “The rebuilt Kosciuszko Bridge and the new pedestrian and cycling path are critical arteries, but without protected bike lanes, sufficient lighting, and high-quality signage in the immediate vicinity, cyclists and pedestrians could be placed in harm’s way. This is a matter of life and death. At a time when the city is reeling from a spate of cyclist fatalities, a comprehensive plan must be implemented.”

The Pharmacist’s Corner Presented by Frank Pantina, R.Ph BLOOD PRESSURE CONTROL — THE PHARMACISTS ROLE

About one in three adults and nearly one in three women in the United States have high blood pressure (HBP). The condition itself usually has no signs or symptoms. Someone can have HBP for years without knowing it. During this time, HBP can damage the heart, blood vessels, kidneys, and other organs. Lifestyle changes can greatly assist in the management of HBP. Proper diet, exercise, the elimination or reduction of salt intake and stopping smoking can all play a major role in helping bring HBP under control. Pharmacists play a very important role in counseling patients on high blood pressure. We, as do many other pharmacies, offer electronic blood pressure monitoring, and also include blood pressure checks as part of health fairs and any type of associated community outreach. Blood pressure, like so many other conditions that are easily managed, is always aided when patients take a little time to do proper “bookkeeping”. The following tips are a general guide to keeping track and keeping informed about your condition. And please remember your pharmacist is in a great position to help you set up and maintain all of your

blood pressure records and those of any medications you are taking for your condition. 1. The first step in managing your HBP is to make sure you take everything your physician has prescribed. 2. Make sure you know the name of each of your meds, the dosage prescribed for you and the directions on how to take the medicine—at night, with food, etc. If you have questions about your meds, talk to your pharmacist or physician. 3. Take care of your refills before you run out. HBM needs to be taken without skipping a dosage-you can’t skip a day or cut it in half to last longer—that’s not the way it works. 4. If you are not feeling right and think you are having adverse effects from your meds, talk to your pharmacist and/or physician at once. Your dosage may very well have to be adjusted. This is a common occurrence with HBM. DO NOT STOP YOUR MEDICATION ON YOUR OWN! 5. HBP meds may have interactions with OTC preparations. Many have warnings about not taking them with HBP meds. Consult your pharmacist on what is safe for you to take.

Indeed, in 2019 alone, 19 cyclists have lost their lives, nearly twice the number in all of 2018. “According to your office, these incidents have disproportionately taken place in primarily industrial areas that have experienced an increase in their residential population— including Greenpoint and Maspeth on either side of the new bridge,” Stringer wrote in his message to Trottenberg. “We cannot allow this trend to continue unabated, especially given the City’s commitment to zero bicycle and pedestrian deaths.” The second span of the Kosciuszko opened to traffic just before morning rush hour Thursday. The project, which involved the first major bridge crossing constructed in the five boroughs since the Verrazzano Bridge in 1964, replaced the existing 77-year-old bridge, first opened in 1939, with two new state-of-the-art, cable-stayed bridges. The Queens-bound bridge carries five lanes of traffic and a separate Brooklynbound bridge carries four lanes, as well as a 20-feet-wide bikeway/walkway with views of Manhattan. “This bridge is, of course, a critical artery in the city’s transportation infrastructure. And while I am encouraged by the inclusion of a 20-foot-wide walking and cycling path, any bike lane is only as good as its surrounding network,” Stringer added. “Without protected bike lanes, sufficient, lighting, and high quality signage in the immediate vicinity, bicycle riders and pedestrians could be placed in harm’s way.” Last Tuesday, Cuomo also touted a new agreement that will lead to the completion of the first and second phases of “Under the K”—a project that promises turn nearly seven acres beneath the bridge in Brooklyn into a public program space and park.

Mayor Touts Benefits of Rain Gardens By Michael V. Cusenza The City has begun construction on more than 5,000 specially designed curbside rain gardens in Queens, Brooklyn, and the Bronx, building upon the more than 4,000 rain gardens that have already been built. This construction will bring a total of more than 9,000 curbside rain gardens these boroughs, helping to prevent flooding and reduce Combined Sewer Overflows into local waterways by more than 500 million gallons each year, the de Blasio administration recently announced. According to the City, more than 70 percent of the Big Apple’s land mass is covered by an impervious surface, which creates tremendous volumes of stormwater entering the sewer system during rainstorms. Curbside rain gardens help to soften the city’s landscape and allow the stormwater to be naturally absorbed into the ground, therefore reducing flooding that can impact roadways, homes and businesses. By keeping stormwater out of the city’s combined sewer system, where it can contribute to combined sewer overflows into local waterways, the rain gardens serve as a tool to improve the health of local waterways, Mayor Bill de Blasio noted. “We are deploying all of the resources at our disposal to tackle the challenge of global warming head-on,” Hizzoner added. “We

The rain gardens, like this one in Ridgewood, are designed so that all the stormwater is absorbed in less than 48 hours.

are doubling the size of the largest green infrastructure program in the country, creating green oases in our neighborhoods and protecting our waterways for all New Yorkers to enjoy.” According to the City Department of Environmental Protection, rain gardens are built in city sidewalks and do not result in the loss of any parking spaces. They resemble standard street tree pits, except that

they vary in size, have curb cuts that allow stormwater to enter and overflow if it becomes saturated, and have been engineered in a way that will allow them to manage up to 2,500 gallons each during a storm. In partnership with the departments of Transportation and Parks and Recreation, DEP conducts an extensive site selection process that includes geotechnical investigations and surveys. The rain gardens are

designed so that all the stormwater is absorbed in less than 48 hours and dedicated maintenance crews ensure that they are functioning properly, including removing any trash that may have accumulated and pruning the trees and plants. The crews are active seven days a week, visit each rain garden approximately once a week and additional crews will continue to be added as the program expands. However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows when it comes to rain gardens. They are magnets for trash and illegal dumping. And many are not maintained nearly as frequently as the administration has indicated. Still, the positive effects of the City’s concerted effort to significantly add to NYC’s green infrastructure cannot be denied. “The Jamaica Bay Ecowatchers have worked with DEP over the last decade to help restore wetlands habitat and water quality throughout Jamaica Bay,” said JBE President Dan Mundy. “Today we are experiencing the best water quality in over a hundred years and this has resulted in a resurgence of large marine life including dolphins and seals returning to the waters of Jamaica Bay. One of the last great challenges is addressing rain event sewer overflows and these rain gardens will have a huge impact on such events.”

Retired Cop Stole $130K+ in Kids’ SS Benefits

The Social Security Administration had been paying benefits to Conway on his children’s behalf since 2009.

By Forum Staff A retired City Police Department lieutenant living in Long Island City has been arrested for allegedly stealing more than $130,000 from the Social Security Administration that was intended for his two minor children, federal prosecutors recently announced. Michael Conway, 60, was arraigned last Wednesday on a complaint charging him with wire fraud. He was released on $200,000 bond. According to the complaint, Conway began receiving Retirement, Survivors and Disability Insurance benefits from the SSA in May 2009 for a work-related injury he suffered while employed by the NYPD. Eligible family members may also receive RSDI benefits, or auxiliary benefits. In August 2009, Conway applied for auxiliary benefits on behalf of his twin children,

who were 8 years old at the time. Conway falsely claimed that his children resided with him in Queens and that no other relatives provided financial support for the children. Based on the false information provided by Conway, the SSA approved the application and granted Conway’s request to receive and manage the SSA funds to which his children were entitled. Conway’s fraud was uncovered when his son, upon applying to the SSA for benefits, learned that SSA had been paying benefits to Conway on his children’s behalf since 2009 and that Conway had received a total of $138,016.60. The twins’ mother informed the SSA that she was awarded custody of the children in December 2002 and they had never lived with Conway. If convicted, Conway faces a statutory maximum of 20 years’ imprisonment and restitution.

New Marijuana Use Laws now in Effect

Photo Courtesy of DEA

The new laws will make marijuana enforcement fairer and more equitable, Gov. Cuomo said.

By Michael V. Cusenza New State laws further decriminalizing marijuana use are now in effect. The measures officially went on the books on Wednesday, Aug. 28. According to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who signed the legislation in July, the new laws will make marijuana enforcement fairer and more equitable by: reducing the penalty for unlawful possession of marijuana to a violation

punishable by a fine and removing criminal penalties for possession of any amount of marijuana under two ounces; and creating a process for individuals with certain marijuana convictions to have their records expunged both retroactively and for future convictions. The governor said the new laws will go a long way “in addressing a broken and discriminatory criminal justice process.” “For too long communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by laws governing marijuana and have suffered the life-long consequences of an unfair marijuana conviction. Today is the start of a new chapter in the criminal justice system. By providing individuals a path to have their records expunged, including those who have been unjustly impacted based on their race or ethnicity, and reducing the penalty for unlawful possession of marijuana to a fine, we are giving many New Yorkers the opportunity to live better and more productive, successful and healthier lives,” Cuomo added. “This law is long overdue, and it is a significant step forward in our efforts to end this repressive cycle and ultimately mend our discriminatory criminal justice process once and for all.”
