This is the average?? Does anyone else find this to be…just wildly inaccurate? I know prices have gone up, but not this much.

Not surprising. Landlords were left out to dry when Democrats had rent freezes for an eternity. Now it is payback time. Democrats will bemoan yet another, housing crisis without accepting any of the blame for their role in this madness. Keep voting Democrat! it’s working!

Right magically rents skyrocket when there are no offices open in the city! Landlords didn’t get paid for years they are getting theirs. It’s called price gouging but you must be a real estate broker or a sap. Keep voting Democrat hopefully you won’t get mugged at the ballot box

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
