Welcome to the Queens Blue Book

by Peter C. Mastrosimone / Editor-in-Chief

While the Covid-19 pandemic has changed virtually everything, it has not negated the need for governmental agencies, volunteer groups and other organizations to continue offering the services they always have that are not directly related to the virus crisis. Information about the coronavirus, including vaccinations, is available from the city by calling 311 or visiting www1.nyc.gov/site/coronavirus/index.page. New York State offers a hotline at 1 (888) 364-3065 and information at coronavirus.health.ny.gov. But what if 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 — and calls to the city have gotten you nowhere? Or you’re getting concerned about the increase in graffiti around the neighborhood, especially what looks like gang markers, and want to make sure the police know about it. Or maybe you’ve got newfound time on your hands and just want to get more involved in your community’s civic affairs in general. How will you know which elected officials or area

organizations are best to call? And looking ahead to the end of the pandemic, which must come at some point, where are you going to find a rundown of places like theaters, museums and art galleries, which you’re determined to make sure you don’t miss out on anymore, 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. That graffiti? Contact information for your particular police precinct is inside. Community boards and civic associations? Find out which ones represent you in these pages. 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, which are

mostly functioning online only now, though some are open. There are nearly 50 firehouses in Queens; you’ll find them all on just one page. The same goes for our dozen or so hospitals, as well as our parks, colleges, courthouses, historical societies and more. And there’s much more beyond even those institutions, including vital statistics about our population. This is our second year publishing the Queens Blue Book. As we continue printing it annually, 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 reader-friendly 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; 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, plan to visit a park or just want to remind yourself of all the borough has to offer.

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.

More than 300 species of birds can be seen here during spring and fall migrations on the Atlantic flyway. Frank Charles Park is a 20-acre park designed in the 1940s as one of several neighborhood parks serving city residents. It contains athletic fields, a playground and more, and also preserves some of the remaining fringe marshes that ring Jamaica Bay, including a favorite place for horseshoe crabs. Jacob Riis Park was designed by New York City as a park in 1912. World War I saw a change to defense needs when the U.S. Navy created a Naval Air Station, but its return to city hands saw its development into seaside recreation. Its famous beachhouse was built in 1932 and remodeled five years later. Fort Tilden, at the edge of the Rockaways, served as a U.S. Army Coast Artillery Post from World War I into the Cold War. Today it is a favorite spot for fishing and shore recreation and team sports.

Kissena Park is an ideal location to both relax and participate in fun outdoor activities. Flanked by weeping willows and shady trees the park creates an idyllic setting to enjoy a sunny day. Stroll through the park to take in all of the lush flora and fauna and be sure not to miss the historic tree grove. The dozens of species of trees in the grove are some of the most exotic in the world. In fact, the grove got its start as part of a 19th century horticultural nursery for the New York region. Get active at one of the park’s many recreational facilities. Try and beat your best time on the bike at the park velodrome. Play a round of golf at the Kissena public course.

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. ANIMALS CAN’T TALK INC.
