RISING STARS AT URBAN UPBOUND GALA by Dr. Sharon M. Cadiz

It was an utter delight to be in the company of the many well wishers and supporters who attended the recent Urban Upbound Gala celebrating 14 years of “Rising Stars.” An impressive array of honorees were recognized for their contributions as mentors; collaborators and successful college access alumni. New York City Comptroller Scott M. Stringer was on hand to deliver greetings and special remarks. The evening sparkled with the spirit of pride and accomplishment of this organization that began years earlier “tackling pov-

erty and changing lives.” An impressive list of local elected officials including Councilmembers Jimmy Van Bramer and Costa Costantinides; Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan; and New York State Senator Michael Gianaris sent words of congratulations. All of the Resident Association Presidents from Queensbridge; Ravenswood; Astoria and Woodside were on hand, adding their support and acknowledgement for how Urban Upbound has helped in these respective communities. Urban Upbound has grown over the years to include Em-

ployment Services; Financial Counseling; Income Support Services such as Tax Preparation; Community Revitalization and Financial Inclusion that provided a Federal Credit Union “which has provided safe and affordable banking solutions since 2010.” Last year 22,000 New Yorkers benefitted from Urban Upbound programs across five campuses and 100% of their College Access Students were accepted into college. This record of achievement is a model of what can happen when positive values and a vision combine with communitybased collective action.

TOWN HALL AT P.S. 171 by Dr. Sharon M. Cadiz

The Town Hall Meeting at P.S. 171 drew a large crowd of community residents and many questions were answered by Councilman Costa Constantinides and Council Speaker Cory Johnson. I raised the issue of a parking crisis as a by-product of the area development; along with a concern about losing the municipal parking lot located at 31-07 31st Street. I asked if it was just “conjecture” that the city was selling the lot. What followed was a stonewall of mutual agreement between Councilman Costantinides and Councilman Cory Johnson responding as if I was presuming to prioritize parking over “affordable senior housing.” Rather than take more time to explain the concern, I listened as another member of the audience attempted to share that perhaps another location could be found. The reply was instantaneous: ”There are no other places.” It also seemed to be confirmed that the city is selling the property and there will be an “RFP” (Request for Proposal) to bid on the project. Meanwhile, neither of them addressed the issue of parking that is at the core of many problems that area residents face as they

circle blocks in search of parking spots; pushing emissions into the air and using costly fuel as they do so. The lack of parking not only hurts area residents, it affects businesses that rely on parking for customers who frequent shops, restaurants and other points of interest. If I could be permitted to follow their lead and choose only to focus on “affordable senior housing,” I would submit a challenge to both Councilmen to show how many needy seniors from our area will actually be served by this proposed plan. Based on the evidence of existing senior housing in the area, few (if any) reflect the diversity of local seniors in need of affordable housing. Lists and lotteries need to be scrutinized and overseen by a public entity to ensure fairness. Finally, whether we are talking about parking or “affordable” housing, we all need to keep both ears open to hear what the public is saying; not just listen and serve the needs and demands of developers creating a brave new world for a privileged few. If our elected representatives are more aligned with real estate than the real state of our communities, perhaps we need to make a change. See you at the polls on November 6th.

POSTED

On Tuesday, October 9th, Make the Road New York, Catholic Migration Services, Sunnyside Community Services, Sunnyside & Woodside Action Group (SWAG), representatives from LaGuardia Community College, immigration activists and local residents joined Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer to condemn anti-immigrant signs posted in Sunnyside, Queens and to protest the presence of hateful white supremacist activity in our sanctuary city. “There is no room for white supremacist trash in our sanctuary city. We must be sanctuary neighbors and reaffirm to all immigrants and refugees that everyone is welcome here,” said Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer. “The hateful signs were designed to look like official ICE materials as a way to intimidate immigrants and to pit neighbors against one another. The kind of vigilantism it could inspire is dangerous and illegal. White supremacist propaganda that encourages the racial profiling and harassment of immigrant families is against our Queens values and will not be tolerated in Sunnyside.”

FUNDING

On Thursday, October 4th, Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer spoke at the Cultural Institutions Group’s NYC Culture & Arts Reception in celebration of the record levels of funding secured for cultural affairs in the City’s FY 2019 budget.

WE ARE YOUR COPS!

by Peter Ross

It has been a long wait but Neighborhood Policing has finally come to the 108 Precinct! For over three years the new philosophy of how the New York City Police Department approaches policing has been systematically introduced in 15 phases. Now at the completion of this journey, Neighborhood Policing will be alive and functioning city wide! Although they have technically been functioning and restructured to meet Neighborhood Policing (NP) requirements since September 24th, the 108 Precinct formally had their Meet and Greet Event (affectionately called the Rollout) to introduce the philosophy and its components to public on October 1st. Over 200 community residents packed the Sunnyside Community Services Building at 43-31 39th Street in Sunnyside to learn about how Neighborhood Policing functions, the different roles the Police Officers and Detective Specialists now are assigned to within the philosophy, the differences you will see in how patrol and follow-up are done and most importantly how the public itself has a more direct link to the cops that serve them every day. None other than the Chief of Patrol, Chief Rodney Harrison, came to deliver the message to the guests in attendance. He explained some of the different models and approaches the Department has taken over the years with regard to crime and quality of life concerns and dealing with the public, then explained how the Neighborhood Policing differs from those methods, the roles of the Neighborhood Coordination Officers (NCOs), the Steady Sector Officers and the Response Auto Officers, the reconfiguration of the Precinct sectors where the dedicated NCOs and Steady Sector personnel will now work exclusively for the benefit of those specific neighborhood residents, and the role of hand selected Community Partners who will act as liaisons between the community and the Precinct to help bring cop and community closer together. Of most importance was the point he made that this will only work to its maximum benefit through a shared responsibility between the Police and the communities here in the 108 Precinct. The Chief then took questions from the floor and afterward Deputy Inspector Ralph Forgione, Commanding Officer of the 108th Precinct introduced and handled over the mi-

crophone to YOUR newly minted NCOs, who gave some brief remarks about themselves and their families, why they choose to become part of New York’s Finest and how they are looking forward to their new role as NCOs to serve our various neighborhoods, specifically and exclusively. They are: for Sector Adam (Long Island City and Hunters Point) - Police Officers Desirae LaFurno & Jorge Ozuna; for Sector Boy (Sunnyside, Long Island City & Blissville) - Police Officers Kenneth McLoughlin & Xiomara Rodriguez; for Sector Charlie (Sunnyside & Woodside) - Police Officers Andres Diaz & Oscar Lopez; and for Sector David (Woodside, Maspeth & Laurel Hill) – Police Officers Richard Kaplan & Juan Moscoso. It was refreshing to see how many of them have or do live in Queens (and so are familiar with the Borough, its neighborhoods and challenges), how they are actually reflective of people in the community both in background and appearance, how knowledgeable they were about community relations and how dedicated they are to the command and its constituencies. NCOs are not just community cops. They are first and foremost crime fighters and problem solvers who have been given the time, latitude, training and resources to be the “generalist” cop, able to handle or look into whatever challenge there may be, as opposed to specializing in only one area of policing expertise. They also are charged with knowing the community in a more intimate way and liaising with it accordingly. When you have a concern, you now have someone specific to go to and assist in getting it resolved. Along with the Steady Sector officers, who will continue to answer your critical 911 calls but be allowed time off of the radio to also get to know you better, your specific neighborhood has a team around it dedicated to its needs. Reach out to them, use them. Get to know them and not fear them. They are here for you! The members of the 108 Precinct would like to thank all of those in the community who came out to take part in the event including (but not limited to!) all of the various civic associations (United Forties, Hunterspoint, Wynwood Gardens, Blissville), the local business and educational leaders, BIDs, individuals neighbors and community activists and especially to the youth present who showed up in force (Queens Tech HS, a very large

contingent from the Aviation HS JROTC unit and the Boys Scout of local Troop 390), Special thanks to Sunnyside community Services for gracious allowing use of their space for the event, to Chief Harrison for taking time out of his schedule to personally address the 108 PCT community, to Turtle of LIC Coffeed (Hunterspoint South Park), Gus

Kaloudis of EATaliano & Pies 54-30 48th Street), and Gianna Cerbone of Manducatis Rustica (46-33 Vernon Blvd.) who catered the food for the event (Thank you!). the NCOs would also like to personally thank their cohorts, Community Affairs Officers Marcos Torres and Luis Diaz for their tireless work in making this event a success.

You should be extremely careful about any such promises and any suggestions that you pay them a fee or sign over your deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the services they will perform and fees they will charge, and which prohibits them from taking any money from you until they have completed all such promised services.
