Astoria Park 19 St. bet. Astoria Park South and Ditmars Blvd. www.nycgovparks.org/parks/ AstoriaPark When people think of Astoria Park, the first thing that comes to mind is its public pool, the oldest and largest in New York City. The outdoor pool season begins on June 28 and ends on Sept. 3, giving New Yorkers between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. to go for quick, refreshing dip. The pool is not the only feature of Astoria Park though. Sitting on the East River and underneath the RFK and Hell Gate bridges, the park has basketball courts, tennis courts, bocce courts, running tracks, skate parks, playgrounds and a bandstand. Being such a popular location, it is an ideal place for a series of summer events. On June 9 at 1 p.m., history buffs will flock to Astoria Park for “Historic New York: The General Slocum Disaster.” The Urban Park Rangers will certainly have a lot to cover in this free discussion and exploration

A Great Time For Fun In The Sun
Astoria Park is a great place to spend a summer day. of the area’s past. If you love the 4th of July’ fireworks celebration but cannot see them burst over the Hudson River, then Astoria Park offers an alternative that is just as good. Taking place a week earlier on June 24 at 7:30 p.m., Central Astoria’s Water-
front Independence Celebration will feature a performance by the Queens Symphony Orchestra before a fireworks display above the East River. Once July rolls around, the Waterfront Concert Series will kick off. First up is a concert by Swingtime Big Band on July 11. A Fab Four tribute will happen on July 18 with the Beatlemania Stage Show, followed by a dedication to Motown on July 25. Charlie Thomas & The Drifters’ doo-wop style will please ears on Aug. 1. A combo tribute to Bon Jovi and Journey, called Bon Journey, will fill the August 8 slot. The series will wrap up on Aug. 15 with Michael Patrick’s Ring of Fire band. -Joe Marvilli Queens Botanical Garden 43-50 Main Street, Flushing (718) 886-3800 www.queensbotanical.org If you have a green thumb or a general appreciation for flora, then the Queens Botanical Garden is the place to be this summer, with exhibits, culture and nature melding together. One of the art exhibits going into the summer is a mixed media project called “Fish & Crushed Can Story,” by Iandry Randriamandroso. Displayed in the Gallery of the Visitor and Administration Building, visitors will be invited to create their own pieces at an interactive print-making station. The exhibit is on-going until July 21. Art is not the only culture to be found though. Lovers of classic chamber music should head to the Garden on June 16, Father’s Day,
for a performance by the Quintet of the Americas, featuring music by Queens composers from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Best of all, the concert is included in the cost of admission. Music in the Garden will continue on July 13 from 6:15 to 7:45 p.m. with a performance by the Yowana Sari Gamelan Orchestra. On Aug. 10, Celtic folk fiddler Tony DeMarco will play for garden-goers at the same time. The final performance of the season will be by the Arab music and dance ensemble Zikrayat, on Sept. 7. The Garden is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday until Oct. 31. It is closed on Mondays. Although admission only costs $4 for adults, $3 for seniors and $2 for students and children, the center has free hours from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Wednesday and from 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday. -Joe Marvilli Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Broad Channel The Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge is a beautiful wetland estuary that many explore for its natural beauty. The bay is 39 square miles and it is located in Queens but close to the Brooklyn border. Its main entrance is right off of Cross Bay Boulevard in Broad Channel and it is surrounded by the Rockaway Peninsula and Southern Brooklyn. It has a visitor center where you can ask the park rangers for information before heading out on your nature journey. In addition to the refuge itself, there is also Jamaica Bay Park that serves as more green space for residents that are looking for some fun in the sun. The park is 18,000 acres and located in the Bayswater section of Far Rockaway. It is accessible by a narrow shorefront strip along Edgewater Road and is a wetland sanctuary for the wildlife that lives in the area. On June 2, the Wildlife Refuge will host Bike Around Floyd Bennett Field, giving residents and bike enthusiasts a chance to tag along with a park ranger and tour the Brooklyn-based park that was once a municipal airport. The location for the event is at Ryan Visitor Center in Jamaica Bay Park and those participating are encouraged to bring water, sunscreen and dress properly for the ride. -Luis Gronda

Forest Park Bandshell Seuffert Bandshell Forest Park Drive, Woodhaven www.nycgovparks.org/parks/ forestpark One of the many parks where residents can go during the summer is Forest Park. Besides the open space it offers for walking, jogging and playing sports, the Seuffert Bandshell offers many free concerts throughout the summer. The concert space was named after George Seuffert, a concert violinist and music teacher. He formed a band called the Seuffert Band who used to play at the space in the park until it was converted into the bandshell in 1920. Seuffert retired from the band in 1945 and died in 1964 in Ridgewood. The performance space was named after him in 1979. Throughout the months of July and August, the park will host a weekly concert every Thursday night. Performances for this year’s summer concert series include Lennon, a tribute performance to the careers of John Lennon and The Beatles, Mike Delguidice and Big Shot, a Billy

The green space is offering Zumba classes on Thursdays before the summer concerts take place and you can also see a free screening of “Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted” on Aug. 2. -Luis Gronda Museum of the Moving Image 36-01 35th Ave., Astoria (718) 777-6888 www.movingimage.us The Museum of the Moving Image has been a staple of the Borough’s art scene for the past two decades and this year is no different. The Astoria-based museum offers several exhibits and installations for residents and people visiting Queens who are looking to cool off from the hot summer weather. Two of the exhibitions they are offering are A Tribute to Heather and Spectacle: The Music Video.
Two installations visitors can go see are called Sonos Playground Deconstructed and Single Stream. According to the museum’s website, A Tribute to Heather embeds a single animated GIF into a website many times to produce a textile art of color and motion. Spectacle: The Music Video brings to light the history and art of the music video. The exhibit shows how the videos have impacted popular culture over the last 35 years. It features artists such as David Bowie, Kanye West and Madonna. This will be at the museum until June 16. Sonos Playground Deconstructed is an installation that showcases minimalist art in a music video environment. According to the museum’s website, there are five detached walls above a reflective floor. People that go inside can select a song on the iPad and watch visuals produced by the rhythm of the song. This installation will continue at the museum until June 16. Single Stream is about a recycling center in Charlestown, Massachusetts and shows the process of how this center handles the garbage they get on a daily basis. It will begin showing on July 3 and go on until Nov. 3. The museum also shows several films including ongoing series such as Fist and Sword and the Korean Cinema Showcase 2013 and temporary series’ including Play This Movie Loud! and See it Big! It was announced last week that a new gallery dedicated to Jim Henson and his creation, the Muppets, will also open at the museum. The gallery cost $2.75 million and was funded by the City of New York. It is expected to open in the winter of 2014-2015. -Luis Gronda

By John L. AARon Summer in the City means different things to different people. In New York City with an 8,000,000 plus population comprising more than 168 nationalities and ethnic groups, summer has its own appeal, from foods, to cultural events, to celebrations, to sports. However, the sport of cricket has a special place on the summer calendar for many New Yorkers, especially those who hail from cricket-playing nations around the world. Cricket, a sport some argue is close to baseball, while others argue not, is the one activity more than a few enjoy during the summer in New York City, as spectators and players. The Big Apple enjoys a distinct advantage over other cricketing communities around the nation, primarily because of the density of the population in the five boroughs and the ease of commuting from one ground to another. Played mostly outdoors, cricket attracts teams of a minimum of eleven persons each. Then there are the staunch supporters and those who enjoy a rivalry between the sound of leather ball hitting a piece of English willow. How sweet a sound it is to the ears of the cricket aficionados? There are seven or more leagues in the New York City area, all vying for a patch of grass that surrounds a 22 yard strip of hardened dirt, covered most times with a continuous strip of jute fabric, enough to cover the pitch between the two sets of stumps. At either end, the cheers are generated by those other batters sitting back in “the pavilion.” Such folk, especially those of Caribbean decent, may be the ones involved in the preparation of curried goat, fried rice, roti and curry, and a host of other sumptuous dishes that await the weekend warriors when the match is finally over. Accompanying such
delectable fare is a strong line-up of bottled beverages. The scenario described above is a cultural throwback to the days when cricket was enjoyed in the Caribbean by scores of families at an all-day cricketing event in the park, not unlike the British aristocracy having tea and crumpets during the game in the mid-afternoon, or breaking for lunch between innings. New Yorkers do not follow the English tradition when it comes to the enjoyment of cricket in the metropolitan area. Shouts of “Shabash! Shabash!” can often be heard coming from many of the players and or spectators. Shabash simply means good luck or is often offered as encouragement for a job well done. The sideline pundits add to the flavor and dimension of the sport, particularly with the introduction of the shorter form of the sport in the cricketing communities. With three to six hour matches now an integral part of the cricket calendar, one can easily see or play in a match that allows them enough time to do their weekend chores in and around the home. Cricket, the sport of some summer enthusiasts, is a clear indication of one’s cultural heritage and the ongoing desire to stay involved in a sport played during their early childhood days. With the exception of a few, many of the New York cricket leagues are grouped along ethnic lines, such as Pakistanis, Indians, Bangladeshis, Europeans, and West Indians, with the latter further broken down by countries in the Caribbean. The players are often comfortable enough to enjoy the sport in a recreational manner, and for the sake of hoisting aloft a trophy, whose price tag does not very often exceed $150, but means a whole lot more to many. To the vanquished, go the spoils and the all too familiar wait till next summer’s refrain.

Dragon Boat Races Meadow Lake, Flushing Meadows Corona Park (718) 767-1776 www.hkdbf-ny.org Dragon Boat Racing has been one of Flushing’s most popular summer activities for over 20 years now. The camaraderie, the teamwork, the endurance, the competitiveness and the dexterity found in the sport have all resonated beyond its origin in the Borough’s Chinese community. On the weekend of August 10 and 11, the 22nd Annual Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival will return to Meadow Lake, which will be filled with 40-foot long boats directed by teams of 20 members. With the stead beat of a drum to guide them, the rowers will push forward in a synchronized fashion, competing to be the best crew out on the water.

150 Hicks Lane, G reat Neck, NY
of Corona has been a neighborhood staple for more than 60 years. Started by Nicola Benfaremo and continued by his son Peter, the location as well-known for their ices large assortment of flavors as they are known for their quality. Back in 1944, Lemon Ice King only featured two flavors of icing. Now, decades later, that number has grown to 36 creative, colorful assortments of delights. All of the classic favorites, such as lemon, pineapple, orange, strawberry, banana, include pieces of real fruit, making them stand out from run-of-the-mill ices. There are also a bunch of oddly charming flavors, including bubble gum, licorice, mint chocolate chip, cotton candy, peanut butter and fruit cocktail. You can get the ices by the cup or the gallon, for at home use. What if you are not in the mood for the ice but you are still in the area? Maybe a gourmet candy apple will be more to your liking. Available individually or by the dozen, the treats come in five different flavors: cherry red, coconut, confetti, caramel and caramel butterscotch crunch. -Joe Marvilli Studio Square 35-33 36th St., Long Island City (718) 383-1001 www.studiosquarenyc.com If you are looking for a night to party in Queens, Studio Square is one of the top spots you can pick.

The State encourages you to become informed about your options in foreclosure. There are government agencies, legal aid entities and other nonprofit organizations that you may contact for information about foreclosure while you are working with your lender during this process. To locate an entity near you, you may call the toll-free helpline maintained by the New York State Banking Department at 1-877-BANKNYS (1-877-2265697) or visit the Department’s website at www.banking.state.ny.us.

By NATALIA KOZIKOWSKA The Big Apple Circus returned to Queens this spring with its annual show for Outreach, a non-profit provider for drug and alcohol treatment services. For nearly two decades, the Big Apple Circus and Outreach have joined together to raise money for a good cause. The performance, “Legendarium,” was held on May 22 at Cunningham Park in Fresh Meadows. All proceeds from the sale of circus or raffle tickets purchased from Outreach benefited the expansion and enhancement of addiction treatment centers. By the end of the night, they had raised approximately $17,000 for the nonprofit. “They’ve been a wonderful partner throughout the years,” said Christine Casiano, vice president and chief administrative officer of Outreach. “It’s just been wonderful and a great place to be every year. I’ve been doing this for 19 years and they’ve just been very supportive of even getting the word out.” The two-hour show featured a wide variety of talented and unique performers. The entire performance had the
audience at the edge of their seats as aerialists soared in the tent and acrobats performed dangerous feats in the air. One of the most unique performances came from the Dalian Acrobatic Troupe of China, a group of girls who combine bike riding with acrobatics in an artistic way. In total, the group has performed in more than 60 countries and received more than 240 awards and prizes in domestic and acrobatic competitions. Just as the performance kept the audience at their feet, there were plenty of moments they were able to sit back and laugh. The dynamic clown duo, the Acrobuffos, was highly entertaining and engaging. One also could not help but smile during the segment when a number of playful dogs took the stage to show off their tricks and personalities. The Big Apple Circus will be holding shows at Cunningham Park now through June 16. For tickets and information, visit www.bigapplecircus.org.

Food Festival Coming To Flushing By JOe MArvILLI Calling Queens foodies! The Flushing Business Improvement District will kick off June with the second edition of their annual Food Festival. Taking place on June 1 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., the event will be held at the Sheraton LaGuardia East Hotel at 135-20 39th Ave. The price of admission is $5 per person. A range of 17 to 19 restaurants will be featured for attendees to discover, according to Flushing BID executive director Dian Yu. Around 12 of those eateries participated last year as well. The first festival, held on July 27 at the same location, was invite-only, meant to advertise local eateries through food bloggers and critics. City Comptroller John Liu, State Sen. Toby Stavisky (D-Flushing), Councilman Peter Koo (D-Flushing) and Nazli Parvizi, commissioner of the Mayor’s Community Affairs Unit, attended its inauguration. This year’s event will be open to the public, with an estimated 400 to 500 tickets being sold. Both Stavisky and Assemblyman Ron Kim (D-Flushing) are expected to attend. “It was based on last years’ experience. Everyone had so much fun,” Yu said. “That’s why we decided to open it up to the public. It’s our goal to attract people around the City to come to Flushing.”
Some of the eateries listed as being at the festival are Pho Hoang, Mulan Restaurant, Corner 28, Xin Yue Sichuan, Ku Shiang Restaurant, Yummy Sushi House, Taipan Bakery, Fayda Bakery, 101 Taiwanese, Deluge Restaurant and Rose House. All the participants that were invited are members of the Flushing BID. “The menu will have traditional dishes,” Yu said. “If the weather holds up, we will open up the balcony at the Sheraton.” Tickets can be purchased at the Flushing BID office found on the sixth floor of 135-20 39th Ave. Yu said that there is no guarantee that any tickets will be left to sell the day of the festival. Rob MacKay of the Queens Tourism Council had some words of encouragement for this year’s festival, stating that it worth attending. “I’ve been looking forward to this Food Festival ever since last year’s festival ended. It is so much fun on so many levels,” MacKay said. “It’s also the perfect venue to learn about new or hidden restaurants in Flushing, which is basically an eating Mecca.” “Our goal is to bring the spirit of the food festival back to Flushing and make it better,” Yu said.

Leisure Big Apple Circus Holds Benefit For Outreach
The Dalian Acrobatic Troupe of China is one of the featured acts performing with the Big Apple Circus, which recently raised $17,000 for Outreach, a non-profit provider for drug and alcohol treatment services.
Flushing House Hosts Elder Law Seminars
As in previous years, Flushing House has scheduled three “Elder Law Seminars” for the spring of 2013. The seminars will focus on how the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and Medicaid Redesign in New York State may impact health care and home care services for older adults. Medicare changes arising from the ACA will also be explored, as well as asset protection trusts and estate planning. Maria Alvarez, Executive Director, NY StateWide Senior Action Council, will give the first seminar on Saturday, June 1. Her talk is about the entire range of beneficiary issues i.e., how changes to coverage through Medicare, Managed Care and Medicaid, under the new rules of ACA and Medicaid Re-Design, will impact the scope, choice and delivery of benefits and services for older adults. Joining Alvarez is Eric Hausman, Independent Consultant specializing in Medicare Education and Training. Lani Sanjek, a former top official with StateWide, will also join the discussion. Ronald Fatoullah, Esq., the noted elder law attorney, will give the second seminar on Saturday, June 8. Fatoullah
will give an overview of the Medicaid program and explain how to protect one’s assets in the event long-term health care is needed. He will also review five essential legal documents that seniors should have – the importance of a (i) last will and testament (ii) power of attorney (iii) health care proxy (iv) living will and (v) living trust. Ann-Margaret Carrozza, Esq., the noted elder law attorney and former NYS Assembly member, will give the third seminar on Saturday, June 15. Seniors should know how to protect their homes. Carrozza will explore asset protection trusts for primary residences, and estate tax planning, in lieu of 2013 Federal estate tax changes. She will also advise seniors how to get the long-term care they need through Medicaid, while still protecting their assets. All three seminars will be from 2:30 to 4 p.m. in the Flushing House dining room; there will be refreshments available and free handouts from the speakers. The seminars are open to the public -- admission is free. If you wish to attend, RSVP to (347) 532-3025 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.

By NATALIA KOZIKOWSKA On Friday, May 24, elected officials, community leaders and frustrated residents protested at the Dept. of Environmental Protection’s headquarters in Flushing to demand the City take action to remedy a problem that has been plaguing them for decades. “The basement floods every time it rains,” said Joan Davis, a South Jamaica resident who has lived in her home for 40 years. “Sometimes it even comes up to the steps, about a foot. In light rainfall, I might get a little bit but during heavy rainfall, I’m definitely going to take water.” In 1996, the DEP purchased the Jamaica Water Supply and shut down the wells it operated in southeast Queens. As a result, the water table began to rise. From 1996 to 2007, it rose approximately 35 feet. Davis, like many other southeast
Queens Pols Call For Table Gaming At racino By LuIS GrONdA Amidst Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s plan to adopt table gaming for upstate New York, Queens officials have called on the Governor to reconsider his position on table gaming in New York State. Earlier this month, Cuomo released a detailed report which aims to bring three casinos to different regions in upstate New York. This would create jobs and bring tourism to those areas where the facilities would be built. According to the Governor’s plan, the upstate NY region would be divided up into six areas, with one casino eligible to be built within each region. “For years neighboring states like Connecticut and New Jersey have benefited from New Yorkers leaving our state to visit their gaming facilities. We want to reverse this trend by putting new resort destinations in Upstate New York, a strategy that will attract more tourists and visitors to come and shop at our local businesses, visit regional attractions, and help create new jobs in our communities,” Cuomo said in a statement announcing the initiative earlier this month. But at a press conference held outside of Queens Borough Hall on Tuesday afternoon, Queens Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Jack Friedman countered that argument, saying that the table gaming should be placed at Resorts World Casino New York in South Ozone Park because of the economic boost it has provided to the Borough and the City as a whole. “It’s making a lot of money for the State and education; it’s creating jobs and businesses opportunities for Queens County,” Friedman said. “And the addition of table gaming would raise those revenues exponentially.” According to the casino, Resorts

Edit Page In Our Opinion:
City Turns A Blind Eye For more than two decades, the people of southeast Queens have endured flooding in their homes during heavy rainfall and for years, frustrated residents have openly spoken out against the Dept. of Environmental Protection, demanding the City agency reopen the wells it operates. Southeast Queens finds itself in a unique, yet unfavorable situation. The answer to their suffering seems simple enough. Between August and November of last year, the DEP, in partnership with the Dept. of Conservation, reopened one system of its well and within that three-month period, the water table dropped eight to 10 feet – the people began to see relief. But this relief was short lived and the DEP has since abandoned groundwater as part of its mission. Just less than five years ago, on Sept. 24, 2007, Emily Lloyd, the DEP’s former commissioner, made a statement where she acknowledged that the rising groundwater in South Jamaica was becoming a huge problem and said that reduction in groundwater “had to be as high a priority to the DEP as was installation of sewers.” Sometime between 2007 and 2013, the DEP must have noticed that taking responsibility for groundwater was rather pricey and has since turned a blind eye to the people it serves. Time and time again, residents have been told that in 2018, the wells will reopen but with the recent news that this may not even be the case, it is more important than ever the City lend a hand and work with our elected officials. The years of miscommunication only harm the families of southeast Queens. If the DEP is the only agency with the power and means to help these people, they must be willing to compromise and if the DEP refuses to encounter the costs of operating the well, there needs to be pressure from our government, some form of legislation, demanding a solution.
In Your Opinion: Willets Fiasco
To The Editor: In an extremely aggressive move last Friday, the City’s Dept. of Buildings slapped closure notices and padlocked some of the 95 percent of the Willets Point properties they claim they own or are in contract with east of 126th Street. The City used the threat of seizure by eminent domain as a bargaining tool to negotiate the purchase of property after the plan was approved in 2008. CB7’s vote two weeks ago to approve the new expanded plan by a narrow margin further sealed the Iron Triangle’s fate. Mayor Mike is now in a hurry to get it moving before his term ends. However, the next mayor will inherit all the headaches there going forward. There will be many.
People going to Willets Point will have to drive there or rely on the currently overcrowded number 7 subway line, or the Long Island Rail Road. No bus lines serve the area. One new off and on ramp on the northbound Van Wyke and a few minor tweaks to existing roadways will not drastically change accessibility to Willets Point. If you do drive there, you will have to park in a gated parking garage along Roosevelt Avenue or in the 2,500-space parking garage behind the huge new 1.4 million square foot mall to be built on the Mets parking lot. The City got zero interest from developers for the original 62-acre site alone. Now the developers claim they need the 40+ acre mall plan expansion as an economic engine to fund the rest of the project.

If I was the Mets or Citi Field, the last thing I would want would be for mall shoppers to come to the ballgame with shopping bags that have to be security checked, testing the patience of those on line behind them. I can’t imagine myself wanting to stay to a game’s end knowing that I parked my car on an upper level of the 2,500-space gated garage. Getting out of a gated garage is hard enough as it is without everybody leaving at the same time. However, the way the Mets have been playing lately, they may not need any garage. If I was a retailer, I wouldn’t gamble on putting a store in this area due to such limited access with no pedestrian traffic, and the smell of Flushing Bay when the tide is out. Willets Point was never meant to be a high traffic area. That’s why the roads go over and around the area. It was a swamp, an ash dump and a parking lot for the 1939 World’s Fair. It was a noman’s land where nobody wanted to locate except for the limited industry and car parts shops that settled there in the 1950’s. The City has never given them good roads, sewers and the sidewalks they should have gotten for the millions of dollars they’ve paid in taxes over the years. Shame on the City. This is a perfect example of - if we build it, they’ll come mentality. I bet they won’t. That’s why I voted against the project as a member of Community Board 7. Tyler Cassell, Flushing
To The Editor: Your recent story, “FAA Agrees to Review Airplane Noise” (Queens Tribune, May 23, 2013) sheds important light on the most pressing environmental issue facing Northeast Queens communities. We are suffering from almost unbearable noise pollution affecting our quality of life and even our health. It occurs from early morning to very late at night. What has been lost in the discussion, though, are the very severe economic consequences to our neighborhoods if the noise is not made to stop. That is the loss of residential property values that will be suffered in Little Neck, Douglaston, Bay Terrace, Bayside, Auburndale, East Flushing and Whitestone. There are approximately $50 billion dollars of residential property alone in these areas. The FAA, itself, has commissioned
Marcia Moxam Comrie, Contributing Editor Reporters: Harley Benson, Joe Marvilli, Natalia Kozikowska, Luis Gronda, Trisha Sakhuja
studies demonstrating the loss in property values as a result of noisy flight patterns. One often referred to was produced by Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc. The general rule of thumb that these studies come up with is that property will decline one percentage point in value for each decibel of aircraft noise. These studies also demonstrate that more expensive properties suffer greater percentage losses in values than medium or low value properties. For residential properties alone in our area then, each one percent loss is about $500 million. We could expect total losses in the billions of dollars. At a public meeting in Bay Terrace recently, the representatives of the FAA admitted that they had done no cost-benefit analysis at all of their new take-off policy. All of us, and all of our elected officials, must make our voices heard. Melvyn Meer, Bayside Member, Community Board 11
To The Editor: In the May 16-22 issue was a letter from reader Robert J. Paterna about drivers not signaling when changing lanes. I could not agree with him more. Last week, I was walking south on the west side of Cross Bay Boulevard in Howard Beach. Approaching the exit ramp to the Belt Parkway where nearly all drivers enter at racecar speed despite the turn and incline, nine drivers zoomed by. Eight of the drivers were either texting or talking on cell phones. I realize mine is not a scientific or professional survey but it sure seems both dangerous and illegal. I see people, mostly teens, crossing streets while texting, completely oblivious to turn signals or oncoming traffic. Several times in the last week or so, I saw one passenger waiting at a bus stop in nighttime hours, iPads, smartphones or iPods in hand. Or nearly alone on trains, walking down dark streets, waiting on train platforms, texting and completely alienated from the world. In doing so, they are practically inviting thieves. Then their devices are stolen, they are attacked or mugged. Who is to blame, the thief or the victims for making it easy for the perpetrators? Can’t they wait until they get home to text? Considering both examples cited, is it any wonder there are so many accidents and thefts? Edward Riecks, Howard Beach

Musicians Of Queens Dry Clean Only
For those who miss the heydays of the 1990s, where no-frills, raw rock 'n roll dominated the scene, Dry Clean Only should be right up your alley. DCO is an alternative-punk band from Middle Village that started in 2005. The band’s three members are Joey Wunsch on vocals and lead guitar, Connor McClelland on bass and back-up vocals and Ronnie Bruno on the drums. The trio, who lists Green Day, Nirvana and Manchester Orchestra as influences, got their start in McClelland’s basement in 2005. The childhood friends all lived on the same block in Queens, taught themselves how to play and started writing music together. “When we first started playing, we had no idea what we were doing,” McClelland said. “It’s like growing up in life. We’re still trying to figure out where we are but we’re building momentum and taking steps in right direction.” In their eight years, the group has played several famous venues in the City, such as Webster Hall, the Knitting Factory and The Bitter End. The band also played at a Vogue Maga-
Finding a Home for Sinatra We here at Qconf want to highlight a four-legged family member, Sinatra, a three-year-old Blue Brindle Pitbull, who belongs to a service man, Sal Lopez of Astoria. Sal did everything in his power to find Sinatra a loving home, but his grandmother, Mary Lopez says everyone strays away as soon as they find out Sinatra is a pitbull. “Sinatra is a very friendly, well-behaved pitbull, who is also good with children and even gets along with other small dogs,” said Mary. “He is also a very calm and collective pitbull, who hardly ever barks.” “I call the rescue home everyday to make sure Sinatra is doing well because he is used to going on long walks with Sal and running
Sinatra around in the backyard,” she said. “I would love to keep Sinatra, but I can’t because I have a leg injury and he needs a strong owner to take him on walks.” Before giving up on finding Sinatra a home, Sal reached out to the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals, a coalition of 150 animal shelters and rescue organizations. From there Sal was introduced to the Glen Wild Animal Rescue in South Kortright, New York, which is
Sinatra’s new home till he finds a permanent home. “We are desperately trying to find Sinatra a permanent home because he comes from a loving household and I have a soft-spot for our service men, who have to make a very hard choice in order to concentrate on their military service,” said Jane Hoffman, founder and president of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. Sinatra has been neutered at the foster home, received all of his shots and weighs about 50 pounds. If you are interested in adopting Sinatra, email Liz Keller, founder of the Glen Wild Rescue Home at email@example.com.
Astoria Coffee Wins StartUP! Cash An Astoria-based coffee company has received a big wad of cash for winning a contest. According to a story in the Daily News, Astoria Coffee was one of three businesses that won a substantial amount of money in the seventh annual Queens StartUP! Business Plan Competition.
The other two companies selected for the money was Fabulous Fitness NYC in Springfield Gardens and M3D, an environmental sustainability company in Flushing. They won $10,000 each. The trio was chosen out of 30 businesses that applied according to the article. Dennis Lee, the owner of
zine Party hosted by Conde Naste in 2010. Though McClelland said the show did not go well due to equipment issues, DCO saw it as a great learning experience. “It was the first time something went wrong in a gig and that really prepared us for the future,” McClelland said. This past April, the trio released their second demo EP, “Swamp Donkey,” which contains five original songs and is currently available on iTunes. It was produced by Stephen Kellner and recorded in a couple of months at Harvestworks Studios in Manhattan. “We attacked this EP a lot smarter than we have in the past,” McClelland said. “It makes me a little nostalgic. Something I wrote when I was 12 years old is being recorded when I’m 19.” DCO is putting together a summer tour to support the new record. The band hopes to inspire kids to play together and feels that their childhood friendship will make them stand out among a crop of other young bands. “We’re apart from other bands because of the relationships the three of us have,” McClelland said. “It’s cool to see that individual people can have a common bond.”
Helen Out Of The Loop? As Queens Borough President, one might expect, or hope that Helen Marshall is up to date on New York City politics. But once again, Marshall has found herself in headlines for being a little out of the loop. During the Queens Democratic Party’s endorsement event last week, a reporter for a Chinese newspaper asked Marshall if she was disappointed the county had not backed John Liu for mayor and instead, thrown their support behind Christine Quinn. According to multiple sources, Marshall seemed confused by the question and reportedly answered, “Well, he’s facing opposition in his re-election campaign for comptroller.”
City Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz quickly ran to Marshall’s aid and reportedly leaned over to explain to her that Liu, in fact, was running for mayor prompting another strange reply. “Oh, I like him, I don’t know why we didn’t endorse him,” she allegedly said. Perhaps if Marshall picked up The Queens Tribune every now and then, she would be up to snuff!
