Father’s Day Classic Car Show to Take Place on Shore Boulevard Sunday


June 15, 2019 By Meghan Sackman

The second annual Father’s Day Classic Car Show will take place Sunday along Shore Boulevard.

The event, hosted by the Astoria Park Alliance, goes from 11 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. and is being held on Shore Boulevard given the location’s history of attracting car and motorcycle enthusiasts.

The boulevard will be closed to traffic and more than 100 cars built before 1990 will be on display.

In addition to car viewing, there will be food vendors, crafts for sale, live music and other family activities. Singer-songwriter D.B. Rielly will be performing at the event.

Food vendors will include The Breakfast Shack, King Souvlaki-Astoria, and Melt Bakery. Other vendors include Astor Apiaries, Hellgate Farm and Key & Arrow Leather.

The show is free to attend, but those who wish to display their cars must pay a $20 fee per car. Registration to enter cars into the show begins at 9 a.m. on Sunday at the corner of Ditmars Boulevard and Shore Boulevard.

Classic car owners will have their vehicles professionally judged in a variety of categories, with trophy presentations on stage to conclude the event.

People planning to attend the car show, sponsored by Old Astoria Neighborhood Association, are encouraged to RSVP on Facebook.

I think the car show is fine . It’s when they bring in women and dress then in sexist outfits and have them stand by cars and take picture with beer gut men.

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.
