Steinway On Display For Sunday Street Fair


Aug. 21, 2015 By Jackie Strawbridge

The Steinway Street Fair will bring vendors outdoors on Sunday for a day of tabling, crafts, games and eats.

The fair will run from noon to 6 p.m., between 28th and 34th Avenues on Steinway Street. The Steinway Astoria Partnership, a Business Improvement District covering Steinway from 28th to 35th Avenues, presents the event.

“We’re looking forward to a lot of our businesses participating,” Marie Torniali, Executive Director of the Partnership, said. “I anticipate there will be some new, craftier vendors [this year].”

Torniali said there will be roughly 200 vendors, about half of whom are local.

Families can enjoy games and activities including a bouncy house, slides and mechanical rides.

Cotton candy, popcorn, sausage and peppers and many other bites will also be on sale.

“I’m looking forward for the street fair to draw more visitors to Steinway Street, to see what’s here, and therefore to come back and shop Steinway,” Torniali said.

The street fair takes place rain or shine.

Agreed. It has so much potential. The rents are too high. There used to be a perfume store on between 31st and broadway that had to relocate because their new lease was 15k a month. That store then became yet another eyeglass place and is now closed.

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.
