SERVING SUNNYSIDE-WOODSIDE AND LONG ISLAND CITY VOL. 79, NO. 35

WOODSIDE, L.I.C., N.Y. FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, 2013

FREE On August 28th, CM Van Bramer, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New York City Parks Commissioner Veronica White and elected officials celebrated the official opening of Hunters Point South Park along the East River in Long Island City. Hunters Point South Park is a 5.5-acre waterfront park along the East River, which includes a central green, a playground, a waterside promenade, 13,000-square-foot pavilion housing comfort stations and an elevated café plaza. Van Bramer played a pivotal role in expanding green space for the residents of Western Queens by helping facilitate a community driven process and securing $320,000 in capital funding for additional natural grass at Long Island City’s newest park.

Hundreds Of Free Helmets Donated To Ravenswood On August 25th, CM Van Bramer distributed hundreds of free bicycle helmets to children and families in at the Ravenswood Houses. In an effort to promote cycling safety Van Bramer recently allocated $3,500 to the Department of Transportation to provide families within the 26th District with free safety equipment. This is the second year in a row that the Council Member is sponsoring the free bike helmet giveaways within the 26th District. Last year, the Council Member’s office distributed nearly 1,000 free helmets to seniors, children, families and commercial cyclists in Western Queens.

On August 26th, CM Van Bramer was joined by Queens Parks Commissioner Dorothy Lewandowski, Elizabeth McQueen, Founder of Friends of Queensbridge Park, Christopher Hanway, Executive Director of the Jacob Riis Neighborhood Settlement House and seniors from the Queensbridge Houses to announce he has secured $2.5 million in funding to completely renovate and restore the Queensbridge park house. “With the funding I have secured we will once again reawaken the southern portion of Queensbridge Park,” said Van Bramer. “It is extremely important that every single senior and child

who lives in Queensbridge know that our City has allocated every single cent we could to make sure that Western Queens has a park that rivals Central Park in Manhattan or any other park in the City of New York. Queensbridge Park is a jewel within Western Queens. Today we have commenced another project which is part of the ongoing revitalization of Queensbridge Park.” The Parks Department will hold a public scoping meeting to gather input on what amenities are desired, before starting their design process. Some amenities that could possibly be included are a modern comfort station, storage space for the athletic teams that use the playfields year round, and office space for Parks Department staff. “Parks is grateful to Councilmember Van Bramer for allocating this funding to continue making improvements to Queensbridge Park,” said Commissioner Lewandowski. “I look forward to working with him and the community on creating a scope of work and design for this project.” Since being elected to repre-

sent the 26th District, Van Bramer has delivered on his promise to restore Queensbridge Park to its original state for local residents. During his term in office the Council Member has secured nearly $6 million for the overhaul of the popular Western Queens park. Recently Van Bramer also secured $3.4 million to begin repairing the dilapidated Queensbridge seawall. Once the restoration of the seawall is completed next summer Queensbridge residents and New York City park goers will once again be reconnected to the East River waterfront after a decade of deterioration and be able to fully experience one of Queens’ most heavily utilized parks. Over the past three years in office the Council Member has allocated over $200,000 to LIC YMCA which provides Western Queens children with sports leagues that utilize Queensbridge Park. The announcement was a part of Council Member Van Bramer’s effort to revitalize the entire park for local residents during his first term in office.

Assemblyman Ivan Lafayette, Assemblyman Michael DenDekker, Senator Jose Peralta, Council Member Daniel Dromm, District Leader Maureen Allen and Ed McGowan CM Daniel Dromm (D-Jackson Heights, Elmhurst), along with several elected officials and community members, unveiled a street sign at 73rd Street and 34th Avenue in Jackson Heights co-naming the street for Mary Sarro, a former Community Board #3 District Manager and beloved Jackson Heights community activist. “Mary Sarro was a beloved member of the Jackson Heights community,” said Dromm. “Her contributions to the neighborhood range from serving on the board of directors of the Jackson Heights Beautification Group, to being a member of the board of the 115th Precinct Community Council, to helping to clear the way for the borough’s first lesbian and gay pride parade in 1993. Few could equal her commitment and love for Community Board #3. She is sorely missed by all.” “Mary Sarro was a wonderful woman — stubborn, opinionated, sweet and she had a heart of gold,” said Democratic District Leader, and Sarro’s long-time friend, Maureen Allen. “She was also tough as nails when she needed to be. I lost a very dear friend and the community- at -large lost a

friend and advocate as well. I will forever be thankful and grateful for the 35 years of friendship that we shared.” The Sarro family moved to the Heights in 1952. After finishing her studies at New York University, Mary Sarro served as volunteer secretary of Planning Board 3 – the precursor to today’s community boards – from 1971 until 1977 when a Charter change created community boards. Helen Marshall, then a Board 3 member, urged Sarro to become district manager of Community Board 3 where she served from 1977 until 1996. Mary was an early supporter of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender rights in the community. When the Queens Pride Parade committee was formed in 1992, Sarro took the group into the 115th Precinct to assure the police the board wanted the parade in the community. After retiring from the board, Sarro stayed active in the community, serving as Sergeant at Arms for the 115th Precinct Community Council. She was also part of the North Queens Homeowners Civic Association, the United Commu-

nity Civic Association and the Jackson Heights Beautification Group. Sarro was a founder of the Catherine M. Sheridan Senior Citizen Center and was instrumental in creating the 82nd Street Business Improvement District. Sarro considered a career highpoint the establishment and dedication of the Pat Deignan 34th Avenue Mall, financed exclusively by then Borough President Claire Shulman. Among her other accomplishments are trees and boulders in Landing Lights Park, the creation of one-way streets to enhance traffic flow, installing additional traffic lights at dangerous intersections and the solution of the problem of homeless people under the Brooklyn Queens Expressway. Under Sarro’s watch, the community board fought successfully for a new police precinct for Jackson Heights (the 115th Precinct) and for neighborhood preservation through the establishment of a Jackson Heights Historic District and the Jackson Heights Beautification Group. Sarro spent hours in her office and at home, battling for the enforcement of livery cab laws, new schools for the overcrowded district and improved relations with officials at the Port Authority and LaGuardia Airport, as well as dozens of quality of life issues. “You have to care about people to do this job properly,” Sarro said in an interview in mid2009. “You have to understand that everyone has a problem with something or other, like too much noise, not enough trees, overcrowded schools and sanitation issues,” Sarro said. “And while these things might not rank very high on the city’s list of priorities, they are very important to the people who live here.”

Donations Of Back-ToSchool Supplies To Local Queens Students On Thursday, August 22, Congressman Joe Crowley hosted two back-to-school drives for local students attending community summer programs. The first was held at the Elmcor Youth and Adult Activities’ summer camp in Corona alongside NYS Assemblyman Jeff Aubry. He then was joined by NYS Assemblyman Francisco Moya at HANAC’s Corona Beacon program at P.S. 19. After touring each camp and speaking to the children about the importance of focusing on their education, Congressman Crowley along with their elected representative in the NYS Assembly distributed school supplies including notebooks, pens, pencils, rulers and other materials to approximately 200 students in total. “It is vitally important for every child to have the necessary tools to succeed in the classroom,” said Rep. Joe Crowley. “Starting the new school year with inadequate supplies puts our children at a disadvantage. That is why I am proud to partner with elected officials like NYS Assemblymen Jeff Aubry and Francisco Moya to ensure we equip our youth with the resources they need to get off to a great start in the upcoming year.” “The HANAC Youth Program and the Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) funded Corona Beacon provides students from some of the most overcrowded schools in New York City the invaluable opportunity to continue learning and growing throughout the summer in a time when many programs like this are disappearing,” said NYS Assemblyman Francisco Moya (D-Queens). “I am proud to join Congressman Joe Crowley and give these deserving students new school supplies as they enter the 2013-2014 school year. In a community of working class families where resources can be limited, these new supplies will give the youth of Corona an extra level of excitement as they continue their educational journey.” Elmcor Youth and Adult Activities’ summer camp operates from late June through August for children ages 5-13. The camp offers recreational, mentoring and learning activities, weekly trips, breakfast and lunch.

Rep. Joe Crowley is joined by NYS Assemblyman Jeff Aubry and Elmcor Youth and Activities summer camp students with their new school supplies at the back-to-school drive.
