Welcome to the Queens Blue Book

by Peter C. Mastrosimone / Editor-in-Chief

You’ve got a nasty pothole on your street that’s rattling cars and prompting some drivers to swerve into the oncoming lane to avoid it — but calls to the city have gotten you nowhere. You’ve heard rumors the big house at the end of the block is going to be turned into a group home for people with disabilities and want to know if they’re true. You’re getting concerned about the increase in graffiti around the neighborhood lately, especially the symbols your neighbor says are gang markers. At the same time, you’ve got relatives from upstate coming in to visit, and they want to see some of the cultural and artistic hot spots they’ve been hearing about in Queens — and they’re especially looking forward to seeing a highquality show or two without paying Broadway prices. How will you know whom to call about your neighborhood issues? And where are you going to find a rundown of places like theaters, museums and art galleries all in one place? The answers are right here. Welcome to the Queens Blue Book — your official guide

to the people, places and institutions that lie behind so much of life in our fair borough. It’s all inside these pages, in one convenient package that serves as an invaluable resource always at your fingertips. Wondering whom to contact about that pothole? The phone number, address and email address for your member of the City Council are all here. Looking to fi nd out the truth about the group home? Find out here which community board represents you and contact the district manager. Want to make sure the police know about that graffiti? Check which precinct you’re in and give the cops a call. Names, numbers, websites, maps — they’re all here in the Blue Book, along with all the details you need to know about our museums, performing arts centers, art galleries and much more. The Queens Library has more than 60 locations; you’ll find them all on just one page. Same with our nearly 50 firehouses. And our nearly 70 post offices and stations. And our dozen or so hospitals. Not to mention our colleges, courthouses, senior centers and civic associations. And

there’s much more beyond even those vital institutions. We did not invent the Queens Blue Book. It was established and published for many years by the Queens Tribune, but alas, our storied competitor is no more. We’re happy to take up the mantle by bringing back the valuable service that is the Queens Blue Book and continuing the tradition. We plan to make it an annual publication, as it was for the Tribune, and in fact we’re looking to you, our readers, for any ideas you might have on how to improve upon it. Is there anything important that we left out? Is there something that could be presented in a more readerfriendly manner? Does a listing need updating? Contact us anytime and let us know! Reach out to the Queens Chronicle by mail at 71-19 80 St., Suite 8-201, Glendale NY 11385; online at qchron.com; via email at mailbox@qchron.com; on Facebook at facebook.com/qchron and on Twitter at @queenschronicle. Meanwhile keep your Queens Blue Book handy for anytime you need to contact a government official, want to see a show, plan to visit a park or just want to remind yourself of all the borough has to offer.

2020

The Voice of the Neighborhood

Queens is divided into 14 community districts, each of which is represented by a community board as well as a district manager and other staff. The district manager and staff are actual city employees, while the members of the board are volunteers. Up to 50 serve on each panel. While they serve in an advisory capacity, not making any final legal decisions, they represent the people of each district — weighing in on zoning and building issues, the granting of liquor licenses and other community concerns.

Each board also has a number of committees dedicated to particular topics, which also hold meetings the public may attend. Board members are appointed by the borough president. Community Board 1

The world’s most diverse borough has a broad system of hospitals and medical care. Babies are brought into the world, and the sick and elderly are cared for in their last days. Emergency rooms take care of broken bones and worse. There are trauma care, senior care, veterans care, innovative community healthcare programs, cutting edge medical research and children’s hospitals where the effort and even the decorations on the wall are designed to make a stay less scary.

Plenty of Choice Space for your Outdoor Recreation

Queens is blessed with dozens of parks large and small, for everything from taking a leisurely stroll to seeking out wildlife to playing organized sports.

ALLEY POND PARK 69-70 230 St., Oakland Gardens Alley Pond Park has a ll the amenities you’d expect from a neighborhood park — playgrounds, barbecue areas and courts and fields galore! It also offers glimpses into New York’s geologic past, its Colonial history and its current conservation efforts with numerous unique natural features, like its freshwater and saltwater wetlands, tidal f lats, meadows and forests, which create a diverse ecosystem and support abundant bird life. It is home to New York City’s first public high ropes adventure course (the largest in the Northeast), part of the Urban Park Rangers’ larger Alley Pond Park Adventure prog ra m. A low-cost outdoor education and adventure program, Alley Pond Park Adventure teaches participants how to canoe, use a compass, fish and enjoy a natural setting without leaving the city.

ASTORIA PARK 24-02 19 St., Long Island City Widely known for its beautiful pool, the oldest and largest in the city, Astoria Park offers more than aquatic pleasures. Outdoor tennis courts, a track, a bandstand, multiple trails, basketball courts and playgrounds lure visitors from the five boroughs and beyond. And the views! Sitting on the edge of the East River and resting between the Triborough Bridge and Hell Gate

Bridge, the park offers shoreline sights and sounds that make the benches along its perimeter popular spots year-round. T he 56 -acre pa rk has been expanded. Phase one rehabilitated the playground in the park’s southern section, the park fields and the drainage system. Phase two restored the comfort station and installed new play equipment, swings, drinking fountains and game tables. Phase three focused on restoration of the park’s northeast section and included repaving all the roads and walkways, rerouting pedestrian entrances, installing new benches and planting trees, shrubs and groundcover. The inviting setting of Astoria Park remains rich in history and symbolic of an ever-changing New York City.

BAISLEY POND PARK North Conduit and 116th avenues between 150th Street, Sutphin Boulevard and Baisley Boulevard South, Jamaica Baisley Pond Park is a great place to play tennis, handball, basketball and cricket, with spaces to run, bike and rollerblade.

Animal Shelters

Who speaks for those who can’t speak for themselves? Every day animals are abandoned by human companions who cannot live up to the responsibilities of pet ownership, while others become lost and cannot find their way home. And while people have grown more conscious of the importance of reducing animal overpopulation through spaying and neutering, there are still many unwanted pets out there. In Queens, there are a number of groups that rescue them and hope you can give them a good home.
