ALL AROUND THE BOROUGH A couple moved into a new apartment in the borough. The couple relocated from outside of New York and planned to make Queens their home. As they started to settle into their new apartment, they had questions: Who should they call to set up the utilities? Where is the nearest library? Who are our elected officials? In response, the couple’s landlord handed them a copy of the Queens Tribune’s annual Guide To Queens. Queens proudly hails itself as the most diverse area in the world. The ever-changing and growing landscape brings the borough to life and its residents are blessed with myriad options for transportation, for entertainment and even just to sit in the park and enjoy the landscape. All of those options, however, can be overwhelming, even for lifelong residents of the borough. With that in mind, the Queens Tribune annually publishes its Guide To Queens. The 2012 Blue Book is filled with helpful information, from elected officials to businesses that are open 24/7. Inside these pages is a wealth of knowledge to make navigating Queens a little bit easier for the 2.3 million people that call the borough home.

The Official Guide To Queens 2012 — The Queens Blue Book

By MICHAEL SCHENKLER Some things endure. The Queens Tribune’s Official Guide to Queens is one of those special creations for a publisher that leaves its mark on the industry and the area and just keeps on going and giving.

the Trib. The glossy covers first dressed the Trib way back in 1990; our Web site appeared over a dozen years ago and was followed by an “emall,” Queens’ first online shopping portal. Our iPad and iPhone apps have brought new portability to Queens news, and we’re not stopping now. The Official Guide To Queens 2012, which you have in your hands – at least virtually, is just the beginning of the story. For the past seven years, the Tribune has been publishing regular magazine specials — stitched and trimmed, bound in a glossy wrap with an in-depth Queens-focused theme. Watch for these specials. They will inform, enter tain and hopefully cause you to think. We’ll provide the official info and the unofficial dope. We’ll compile the information and then push the envelope. Our specials will be found throughout the year, on the coffee tables, office shelves and desks of the decision makers, party goers, businesspeople and families whose daily lives include the excitement of Queens. Watch for our super March 2012 Glossy Souvenir Edition celebrat ing the Queens Tribune’s 42nd Anniversary. There will be a lot more excitement in months ahead. Readers, grab your copy - the glossies move fast - or mail in your $12 subscription (see subscription form below - or find it on our website: queenstribune.com). You can go to our website and sign up online to receive a complete email version – including our advertisers which make this all possible. Likewise, our advertisers are included in the iPad and iPhone apps which can be downloaded free of charge from the App Store. Advertisers, call (718) 357-7400, Ext. 132 to be part of the most exciting journalistic effort in the city’s most interesting and vital borough.

Our editorial team has had every phone number, every fact and every comma checked and doublechecked. Still, we are certain that our readers will find something less than perfect. Please let us know. We want to print corrections, correct our online edition and update our files for next year’s Blue Book. You can send ideas, suggestions or corrections to: bluebook@queenstribune.com or fax (718-357-9417) or mail them to the Tribune. Hundreds of people have contributed to this, the Queens Blue Book. It is the culmination of the effort of journalists, artists, salespersons, office staff and friends who have walked through our doors over the past 41 years. The marvelous staff, which has per fected this edition, has earned my gratitude and respect. Our readers, who throughout the year emailed, faxed and mailed us advice, suggestions, complaints, omissions and errors, and our advertisers, who loyally support our

effor t because t he y belie ve i n the Trib a nd the y belie ve in Queens, are as much a part of our story as anyone else. There are also my partners: a dozen or so special people - family and friends - who believed in me and in this marvelous product and came up with the funding to enable me and my longtime friend and partner Gary Ackerman — you know the guy — to buy our paper back in 2002 and give it new life and a renewed mission chronicling and advocating for Queens, the most exciting place on Earth. Their commitment has enabled us to grow and explore new and exciting publishing avenues. And Lil, Allison and Lee, who provide me with the motivation and creative inspiration to help bring what we do at the Trib to a new level each and every year. To all of you, this Blue Book is yours; may it continue to fill your days with Queens information and color. MSchenkler@Gmail.com

More than 20 years ago, in 1991, I sat in my storefront office on Kissena Boulevard and told David Oats and a handful of other staff members that we were the paper of record in Queens and part of our responsibility was recording history and providing for our readers the borough’s information in a usable, reader-friendly format. The Blue Book you are holding (or the online, iPad, or iPhone edition you are viewing) is the 2012 version of an annual guide which is in its third decade of publicat ion. Year after year, t he a nnual Tribune Guide to Queens has been the most comprehensive working reference book for all who have occasion to navigate through Queens, its information, bureaucracy and life. As we at t he Tribune have entered our fifth decade of publishing, we take note of the Official Guide, just half our age, but our most referenced publication each year. The Trib has chronicled the lives of the people of Queens for more than four full decades and we continue to tr y our be st to bring some order to the hodge-

po dge of Count y a nd Cit y officialdom, as well as answering some basic que stions about our borough – the most ethnically diverse place anywhere on Earth. We hope our effor t s pre sented on these pages help our readers cope. We believe our Official Guide is indispensable to anyone living in, doing business in, researching or even passing through Queens, New York. We use it as a regular phone directory to everything Queens, an elected-officialsnames spell-checker, an atlas (community boards, legislative districts and much more), an emergency contact guide and a mini-encyclopedia/fact checker. It provides you with contact information for all the resources to unjangle your chaos, soothe your soul, enrich your mind and get you where you want to go. We keep a copy of The Queens Blue Book next to our desk at home and one in each of our offices - here in Queens and in Huntington, where we guide the Long Islander newspaper group started by Walt Whitman in 1838. Inheriting the legacy of W h itma n, one of t he greate st American chroniclers in our history, has given me new insight into publishing history and perspectives on the meaning of a newspaper. When we published our first official guide in 1991, the concept of a newspaper-produced reference book for its readers was unheard of. An ever-increasing number of newspapers throughout the City, State and nation have followed our lead and our Official Guide concept is being embraced by newspaper publishers coast-to-coast. We have created the industr y standard. It’s been imitated by many - but never equaled. The Tribune has pioneered much more than just the “Official Guide” concept. Community journalism on the east coast saw its first four-color pages in 1988 in

The Official Guide To Queens 2012 — The Queens Blue Book

Greetings From... Dear Friends, Welcome to the 2012 Edition of the Queens Tribune’s “Official Guide to Queens” – the Queens Blue Book. This annual publication is a great resource for residents and visitors alike. It not only gives you a wealth of information about everything from airplanes to zoos, but also tells you how to get places and when to go. As you know, the borough of Queens is America’s most diverse

Queens. As the second most populous borough of New York, Queens is home to some of our City’s most exciting communities and neighborhoods. Queens is also widely known as the most diverse place in the world, and has residents that represent every corner of the globe.

This tremendously varied melting pot is emblematic of the very things that make New York City so great, and we’re happy to commend the Queens Tribune for organizing the multitude of things to do in a borough that is brimming with activity. On behalf of the City of New York, congratulations to everyone whose hard work has made this publication possible. From sports arenas to restaurants to art museums, there’s truly something for everyone to enjoy in Queens, and the 2012 Blue Book is sure to help many people do just that. Michael R. Bloomberg Mayor, City of New York

Dear Friends, I am delighted once again to congratulate the Queens Tribune as it begins another exciting year of informative, comprehensive and provocative coverage of Queens County and publishes its “Official Guide to Queens: 2012.” The guide is as rich and diverse as the county that we serve and

I – like all residents of Queens – look forward to it each year. As each year goes by we continue to make significant gains in reducing the level of violence in Queens County and improving the quality of the lives of our residents. The Trib’s fair and thorough coverage has helped make those gains possible and for that I – and the residents of this county – am grateful. Again, warmest congratulations. Richard A. Brown Queens County District Attorney

Dear Friends, This week, the Queens Tribune will launch an updated version of its “Official Guide To Queens.” Covering everything from government resources to health care facilities and local restaurants, the annual publication is a valuable resource for anyone in the borough. Many New Yorkers, myself included, refer to it regularly and have come to see it as the definitive guide to Queens.

The Queens Tribune’s guide shows that Queens, the most diverse county in America, has so much to offer both residents and visitors. Cultural landmarks like Don Pepe’s and the New York Hall of Science exemplify the best of Queens, a borough whose culture and unique attractions make it a fantastic destination for all New Yorkers. I look forward to the new edition arriving at my office and continuing to enjoy Queens in 2012. Bill de Blasio, Public Advocate, City of New York

Dear Friends, It is a great pleasure to send greetings to the readers of the Queens Tribune’s 2012 Blue Book, the Official Guide to

county, and our cultural institutions, restaurants, retail outlets and major chains have to meet the needs of the most diverse audiences, diners and shoppers in the world. This guide will help discerning readers to find out what they like best. And, if you have relatives or other visitors in town, let them browse through the Guide! I know that a lot of work and time went into producing this edition. I thank the Queens Tribune and its entire staff for all the hard work. It was worth it. Remember when you Discover Queens – You See the World! Helen Marshall, Queens Borough President

Dear Friends, As always, it is a great pleasure to contribute to the “Official Guide to Queens.” Each year your readership looks forward to a publication filled with the most up-to-date information about one of New York City’s most diverse boroughs. This year, while all New Yorkers have had to endure tough economic times, it is important that we can still cherish the treasures we have right here in our State. With cultural centers, thriving ethnic neighborhoods and an ar-

ray of cuisines to enjoy, Queens represents some of the best New York has to offer. For years, the Queens Tribune has served as a key resource for the community as well as for visitors wanting to experience this wonderful place to live and explore. I encourage all New Yorkers to take advantage of this year’s guide. I would also like to send congratulations to the editors and staff for creating a directory that will shine a spotlight on the resources and exceptional sites that make Queens a destination worth discovering. Andrew Cuomo Governor, New York State

Dear Friends, I am delighted to congratulate the Queens Tribune on the publication of this year’s edition of its “Official Guide to Queens” and extend greetings and warm wishes to all its readers. The guide is a great reference for the many activities, sites and services that New York’s largest borough has to offer. Without question, Queens has something for everyone. Beautiful neighborhoods, world-class restaurants and businesses, outstanding public services and unique historical sites and cultural events make Queens a

great place to live, work and explore. I am certain that families, professionals and travelers alike will find an endless array of experiences to enjoy in Queens. Each year the Tribune has compiled this comprehensive list of government officials, school and transportation information, medical facilities, emergency services, cultural and recreational sites and events, as well as other interesting facts, statistics and data regarding the Borough of Queens. I am sure that it will once again be a very useful resource for everyone seeking to take advantage of the many opportunities that Queens has to offer. Eric Schneiderman Attorney General, New York State

Dear Friends, Greetings to all the readers of this latest edition of the Queens Tribune’s Blue Book, and many thanks to the Queens Tribune’s editorial staff and the countless Queens residents who have contributed to the compilation of this invaluable resource. A borough as vast, diverse, and exciting as Queens – with its two million people, its rich variety of neighborhoods and nationalities, and its burgeoning centers of business

and culture – demands an exceptional guide, and the Blue Book responds to that need admirably. Long-time residents and new arrivals alike can find what they need in the guide, which offers extensive information on a dizzying array of topics, from restaurants and shops to houses of worship and libraries, from health care and senior centers to transportation and special cultural events, and much more. I hope you enjoy the Blue Book and the many treasures of Queens it makes available to you. Thomas P. DiNapoli Comptroller, New York State

Dear Friends, Congratulations to the Queens Tribune for the publication of the Queens Tribune Blue Book. These pages contain an indispensible guide to the borough’s businesses, medical facilities, transportation services and many other useful services, facts and statistics

about the borough of Queens. For more than 20 years, the Queens Tribune has provided this useful resource to the more than 2 million people who call the borough of Queens home. The vast spectrum of communities in Queens provides a vibrant backdrop for the Queens Tribune to archive, and I congratulate you once again on the success of the Queens Tribune Blue Book. John C.

Serving The Borough

Q

ueens Borough Hall is located at 120-55 Queens Blvd. in Kew Gardens at Union Turnpike near the interchange between the Grand Central Parkway, Jackie Robinson Parkway and Van Wyck Expressway, adjacent to the Queens Criminal Courthouse. It is home to the offices of the Queens Borough President, the Queens offices of numerous city agencies and some court space. Previously the borough’s municipal offices were scattered throughout the borough before being brought together under one roof. The first Borough Hall was located in Long Island City at 10-63 Jackson Ave. at 49th Avenue, established when Queens became one of the five boroughs of New York City on Jan. 1, 1898. As the population expanded, the need for a dedicated civic building closer to the center of the borough became more apparent. The current Borough Hall opened on Dec. 4, 1940, and is located very close to the geographic center of the borough. It was built in just nine months during the Great Depression at the low cost of only $1.6 million. The architects, William Gehron and Andrew J. Thomas eliminated elevators in the plans to speed up construction. The long, low three-story brick building has a central entrance on Queens Boulevard marked by angular columns that represent the classical-style architecture popular during the era. It has become one of the most popular spots for marriages in the city, using the building’s small chapel, presided over by the deputy city clerk. This was the first dedicated Borough Hall in the nation and represented the growth of Queens County from rural villages to booming suburbs to a bustling urban center during the 20th Century.

Community Boards

T

here are 14 community boards in Queens, coordinated by Deputy Borough President Barry Grodenchik. The boards act as liaisons between Queens citizens and the municipal agencies that serve them. Each board has up to 50 non-paid members who meet once a month to discuss community issues. All members are appointed by the Queens Borough President, with half of them nominated by City Council members. At presstime, Borough President Helen Marshall was scheduled to appoint new board members in April, so changes will be made to the following lists of members. All Census figures were compiled by the New York Department of City Planning. A reference map with all of the borough’s Board numbers is shown below, with unlabeled locator maps next to each individual board.

retired battalion chief of the FDNY once said it is not a firefighter’s willingness to enter a burning building that makes it special; it’s that person’s ability to acknowledge their own fear and still descend into the danger that earns them the distinction of Bravest. New York City’s Bravest are the elite of a special breed of civil servant; proud components of what is widely considered the best firefighting force in the world. There are nearly 60 firehouses in Queens, some more than 100 years old, and every one the anchor of its neighborhood. Each uniformed member – from the officers down to the probies – has sworn to protect the communities they adopt as their second home. Active 24 hours a day, seven days a week, these quarters are also sources of comfort and pride for residents of the community. Majestic engine rigs and ladder trucks tucked inside brick buildings with towering cherry-red garage doors are emblematic of the daily service provided by the dedicated men and women of the Fire Department of the City of New York. Below is a list of Queens’ engine companies, ladder companies and battalions.

Park It On The Green Queens Greenspots & Playgrounds Queens’ 400 parks, playgrounds and fields provide our borough with more than 7,000 acres of green space.

ASTORIA PARK Although 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. 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. BOWNE PARK This Flushing park is bounded by 29th and 32nd Avenues, and by 155th and 159th Streets. Featuring basketball, bocce courts and playgrounds, it is named in honor of Walter Bowne (1770-1846), who served as a State Senator and as New York City Mayor. Bowne’s summer residence stood on this property until March 1925, when a fire destroyed the building. CUNNINGHAM PARK Culture, sports, nature... and fun! All of these things abound in Cunningham Park, one of the largest parks in Queens. Assembled between 1928 and 1944 and named Cunningham Park in 1934, the space features bicycling, cricket, dog runs and hiking. FLUSHING MEADOWS-CORONA PARK At 1,255 acres, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park is the second largest park in the City and host to the USTA U.S. Open and the New York Mets in Citi Field. The park also houses the Queens Museum of Art, Queens Zoo, Hall of Science and Queens Theatre. The site of two 20th century World’s Fairs attended by millions of people, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park continues to draw and delight visitors. As the largest park in Queens, it offers plenty of space for whatever your recre-

ational desires may be—baseball, soccer, tennis, cricket, et cetera. Discover the stunning recreation complex, zoo, art museum, botanical garden, skate park, science museum and baseball stadium. Explore one of the park’s six playgrounds, take a stroll along the Flushing Bay Promenade or launch your model airplane. Flushing MeadowsCorona Park has room for all your active pursuits! FOREST PARK With more than 500 acres to romp through, Forest Park offers trails for horseback riding and walking or jogging. The Bandshell, originally constructed in 1898, and reconstructed in 2010, serves as a venue for musical performers, including Sunday afternoon appearances by the Queens Symphony Orchestra. KISSENA PARK This quaint refuge in Flushing is packed with recreational opportunities. In the early morning, it’s a prime spot for bocce, tennis or Tai Chi. Then, in the afternoon, golfers head to the Kissena Park Course and cyclists tackle the Velodrome on Booth Memorial Avenue and Parsons Boulevard. Kissena Lake was refurbished several years ago and now the looping path around it is often filled with joggers, walkers and fishermen. JAMAICA BAY PARK This 9,000-acre bird sanctuary is known for some of best bird-watching on the eastern seaboard. A one-and-ahalf mile trail weaves through the salt marshes; the wildlife refuge is part of the Gateway National Recreation Area. JUNIPER VALLEY PARK This park became part of the park system after the City acquired it to settle a tax dispute with Arnold Rothstein, most famous for accusations that he rigged the 1919 World Series. The 55-acre plot of land earned its name from the nearby Juniper Valley Swamp. In the early 1940s the bog was transformed into a recreational destination with new fields and paths. Today, the Juniper Park Civic Association maintains the park and lobbies for its needs. PLAYGROUNDS: Playground for all Children in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park Bay Terrace Playground (PS 169) Bellaire Playground (PS 135)

ALLEY POND PARK Extending from Little Neck Bay to Springfield Boulevard and Union Turnpike, this 657-acre park is the second largest in Queens. It consists of an environmental center, baseball and football fields, hiking trails, a dog run and first come, first serve adventure course. The origin of “The Alley” name is still debated, but it is rumored that travelers – such as George Washington – passed through the park on their way to Long Island.

O

ne in five New York City children live in food-insecure households, which means families must decide whether to pay rent, utilities, medical care or food, according to the Coalition Against Hunger. Hunger agencies reported to CAH that some of the fastest growing population pools in the borough in need of food assistance were families with children, seniors and immigrants. If you are in need of food, call the Coalition Against Hunger at (866) 888-8777 for food assistance. Their directory of about 200 food pantries, soup kitchens and other food assistance programs located all over Queens has been reprinted here, and can also be located at nyccah.org/maps/index.php.

Queens’ Silver Lining

Senior Centers

And for seniors who need a little bit of help, centers provide a wide variety of services, such as arranging transportation and meals for homebound residents. Some even offer assistance with legal issues and taxes. More information can be found at the City's Department of Aging Web site, nyc.gov/ html/dfta, or from their referral office, reached at (212) 442-1000. The Borough President’s Office has compiled an updated directory of Senior Centers in Queens, listed below.

Life really can start at 60. With more than 50 senior centers located in Queens, it's easier than ever for one's golden years to be full of exciting activities, from biking and jogging to playing the slots in Atlantic City. Just under one-third of city residents over 60 reside in Queens, and the majority of those are not bound by mobility or self-care limitations, according to the 2000 Census. Moreover, several studies also show that seniors today are more healthy and active than in the past - many are playing tennis and pool instead of just pinochle and cribbage.

Adult Day Care Programs For older people in frail health, managing at home is often a struggle that may lead to institutionalization. There is an alternative enabling them to retain their independence and remain in the community. Adult Care Programs provide medical assessments, rehabilitation and counseling services. These activities all take place in a friendly, social setting, helping to counteract the isolation and depression suffered by so many elderly coping with disabilities. The criteria for eligibility, fees, and specific areas served vary from program to program. For more information on Adult Day Care programs call the Queens Borough President's Office at (718) 286-2680.

If eligible, you could save as much as 60 percent on the cost of prescription drugs. To obtain more information and an application, call (800) 332-3742.

Like veins in a body, the tunnels and elevated tracks of the Queens subway routes reach through the borough, carrying in them important “blood” in the form of commuters, tourists, students, and day trip- THE 7 TRAIN WILL EXPERIENCE SERVICE DISRUPTIONS pers. So it is not surprising just THIS YEAR AS THE LINE IS UPGRADED. how debilitating a shutdown maica Avenue, Wyckoff Avenue or 31st can be, even for a short time. In 2011, the 7 train, which serves two of Street and the whoosh of a passing train the borough’s busiest stations, became a under sidewalk grates along Queens Bouleheadache for commuters and the MTA alike. vard, Hillside Avenue, or Steinway Street, Weekend shutdowns and service changes are the breaths of the borough. As long as left anger and confusion for the nearly half the subways are running, the borough is million daily riders. In 2012, 7 train shut- living- and thriving. Included in this edition is an updated downs will continue, but the MTA promises the upgrades will help make service much map of subway service in Queens as of January 2012. Free copies of the subway more reliable for generations to come. And that’s important to our survival. A map are available at any subway token century ago, the borough grew with the booth. For more information on routes and help of the subways, and today the clang- scheduling, check out mta.info or call (718) ing noise of packed subway trains over 330-1234 for English or (718) 330-4847 for Roosevelt Avenue, Liberty Avenue, Ja- non-English speakers.

The Long Island Rail Road, which has the distinction of being the busiest commuter rail line in the country and the oldest still operating under its original name, serves more than a quarter-million travelers a day between Manhattan and Montauk. Most of those commuters come from Nassau and Suffolk Counties and use Queens as a viaduct to Manhattan and Brooklyn. 23 of the LIRR’s 124 stations are in the borough, and it is the only way Queens residents east of Flushing and Jamaica can get around by train. The LIRR’s Jamaica Station is the fourth busiest transit hub in the metropolitan area and third busiest in the city. Jamaica Station is served by all but one of the railroad’s branches and includes transfers to three subway lines, more than a dozen bus lines, and the AirTrain light rail to JFK Airport. The station is also

T hough subways and buses crisscross the borough and are the most common form of public transportation for those living in Queens, they are not the only modes that serve the 2.3 million of us.

Ride The Rails the Queens/Nassau border. From those stations, the LIRR’s second terminal at Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn is also accessible. Along the Port Washington branch is the Mets: Willets Point station, serving Citi Field and the U.S. Tennis Center, home of the US Open. Within what the LIRR calls the “City Terminal Zone,” commuters often shell out the extra money at Woodside, Forest Hills and Kew Gardens for what is often a quicker trip into Manhattan than taking the subway.

I wonder what it would be like to not worry so much...

I can’t help but worry about my mom being home alone. I want her to enjoy her senior years — but how will we find the “right” community for her?

I chose the comforts of home... I felt a warm, welcoming feeling the moment I entered Brandywine. Sure it was beautiful... but the people I met and friendly staff are what made it so inviting.

BIZ/TRANS

I chose for her to be safe... Some days are a little harder for mom than others and it is comforting to know that she has the support of the wonderful Brandywine staff when she needs them, including nurses on-site, not on call, 24 hours a day.

I chose her happiness...

There are so many good choices available — but only one great one...

Choose Brandywine! Call the location nearest you to arrange a private tour...

Take To The Street

Get On The Bus

To reserve your space call 357-7400

Do not stand in the stairwell while the bus is in motion. Once the bus has stopped, you’ll see a green light over the rear door that indicates it can be opened. In some buses, these doors swing open automatically once you press the yellow tape strip on the doors. If you pay your fare with a MetroCard, you may transfer free from bus to subway, subway to bus or bus to bus within two hours of the time you pay your fare. Unlimited Ride MetroCard includes all transfers, at no charge. If you pay your fare with coins, you may transfer free between buses with intersecting routes. You must ask the bus driver for a transfer when you pay your fare. The transfer is a single-use MetroCard with a black stripe along the bottom. When you catch your connecting bus, insert the transfer into the bus fare box — black stripe to the right side. For your late night safety and convenience: Request-A-Stop bus service allows you to request to be let off at a location that is not a bus stop and is available from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., seven days a week. Simply inform the bus operator where you want to get off.

BIZ/TRANS

B

us fare is $2.25, payable with a Metro Card or coins (no pennies). People 65 years or older and people with qualifying disabilities who show proper forms of identification (including Reduced-Fare MetroCard or a Medicare card) are eligible for reduced fares. Bus stops are located at street corners and have a tall, round sign with a bus emblem and route number. Some stops have bus shelters. All NYC Transit buses are accessible to travelers who are handicapped. Certain bus seats are reserved for people who use wheelchairs, that must be relinquished upon the bus operator’s request. These seats are clearly marked. Although some seats near the front do not have to be given to elderly persons, it is considerate to do so. Buses stop about every two or three blocks. Buses marked “Limited” make fewer stops. Push one of the tape strips located between the windows or stop buttons on the grab bars of the newest buses in order to signal the driver to stop. You should exit at the rear door to keep out of the way of people trying to board the bus.

Municipal Parking Spots

I

n Queens, many residents rely on their cars to get about town for groceries, to visit friends, to go to work and more, so finding street parking is often a challenge. But with ample municipal parking lots, finding parking spaces in this borough is a little easier. Since 2005, parking meters and Muni-Meters no longer have to be paid on Sundays. The Department of Transportation is in the process of changing signs throughout the city to reflect this new parking rule but it will take some time before the thousands of parking signs can be updated. Despite what is stated on these signs, motorists can park at meters on Sundays without paying. Most municipal parking spaces have been supplied with Muni-Meters, replacing 20th Century coin meters, and offering a new-millennium method of paid parking. Muni-Meter Payment Coin Payment 1) Insert one quarter for each 15-minute unit of time desired, and indicate space number, if required. 2) Press green button to end purchase and take receipt.

3) Display receipt on vehicle dashboard. Parking Card Payment 1) Insert Card and indicate space number, if required. 2) Press blue button to purchase time units. 3) Press green button to end purchase and take receipt 4) Display receipt on vehicle dashboard. Cards are available in $15, $20, $15, and $50 denominations, and may be purchased by calling (718) 786-6334 or (718) 786-7042, or by writing to NYC DOT, Pre-Paid Parking Unit, 3402 Queens Blvd., Long Island City, NY 11101. Credit Card Payment 1) Insert your card and purchase desired amount of parking time by pressing the blue button. 2) Press the green button to begin the authorization. If your transaction is approved, a receipt will be generated. If it is not approved, the meter will display “transaction denied.” You should call your card issuer to find out why. 3) Place your receipt on the drivers’ side of your dashboard so that it displays the entire receipt. 4) If your card gets stuck in the machine or does not come out on its own, you can use the red “cancel” knob to eject the card. If

The Official Guide To Queens 2012 — The Queens Blue Book

Business Improvement Districts

Queens is a borough full of emerging businesses and economic development. The City helps new store owners get their feet planted and improve underdeveloped areas at the same time by setting up Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) all over town. In exchange for a small tax, merchants and property owners are promised a revitalized area, by providing services such as increased maintenance and security, as well as in marketing and promotions. As of 2010, there are 64 BIDs in neighborhoods throughout New York City – 12 in Queens – which make up the largest and most comprehensive network of Business Improvement Districts in the nation. The City’s 64 BIDs annually contribute close to $100 million worth of services in neighborhoods across the five boroughs. The number of BIDS citywide is expected to increase with new potential BIDS coming together in the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Island. A Business Improvement District is a formal organization made up of property owners and commercial tenants who are dedicated to promoting business development and improving an area’s quality of life. BIDs deliver supplemental services such as sanitation and maintenance, public safety and visitor services, marketing and promotional programs, capital improvements and beautification for the area – all funded by a special assessment paid by property owners within the district. Since its inception over 20 years ago, the City’s BID program has contributed over $930 million in supplemental services to invigorate our neighborhoods. The following is a list of the Queens BIDs and their contact information. 82nd Street Seth Taylor, Executive Director 37-06 82nd St. Jackson Heights, NY 11372

In The Service of Queens

Tribune Photo by Ira Cohen

In 2002, Helen Marshall became the 18th Borough President of Queens â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first African American and the second woman to assume the post of the highest elected official in the borough. And for this history-making woman, service to the community is nothing new. Marshall was the Councilmember representing the 21st District (Corona, East Elmhurst, Jackson Heights, Elmhurst, Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and LaGuardia Airport) for 10 years before taking on her current position at Borough Hall. She was the first minority and first woman to be elected by that district in 1991, and before leaving, she served as chair of the Higher Education Committee and was a member of the Housing & Buildings, Environmental Protection and Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Issues Committees. She also was co-chair of the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Black and Latino Caucus.Before her election to the City Council, Marshall was elected in 1982 to the first of five terms in the New York State Assembly. For eight years, prior to her election to the Assembly, she was an early childhood teacher. She left teaching in 1969 to become the first director of the Langston Hughes Library â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a post she held for five years. She also was director of the Elmcor Testing Assessment and Placement Program for eight years. In 1975, she became a Democratic National Committee Committeewoman and was elected in 1974 as a Democratic District Leader. She was also a parent activist in the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public schools for 15 years, a member of Community Board 3 for 13 years and a founder of the Queens County Overall Economic Development Corporation. Marshall is a graduate of the Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public school system and has a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in education from Queens College. She has also taken graduate courses in education at the Bank Street Claire Shulman College, and public administration at Long Island University. She Feb. 12, 1986-Jan. 3, 2002 is married to Donald Marshall and is the proud mother of two children, Donald Jr., an electrical engineer, and Agnes Marie, who is employed in the fashion industry. Marshall also has two grandchildren, Chandler and Chasen, the children of Donald and Charlene.
