The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition is hosting its annual Steinway Street Fair this Sunday.

The fair takes place on Steinway Street between 34th and 28th Avenues from 12 to 6 pm.

Vendors will be selling jewelry, clothing, handbags, linens, art & crafts and other items. There will also be food vendors and rides for children.

“It is a great event to go to with you family,” said Marie Tornialli, the executive director of the Central Astoria Local Development Coalition.

Stores along Steinway Street will also be setting up tables in the street- including Tu Casa (a Peruvian restaurant), Jewel Licious (a jewelry store) and the Lincoln Hallmark shop, according to Tornialli.

“It is great to see local vendors participating,” she said.

The fair will include a performance from a Cirque du soleil-like group—called Skyz the Limit.

The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition has been hosting the street fair for over 20 years now, Tornialli said.

Tornialli said that over the years the fair has drawn more vendors. Despite the growth, she said the goal has always remained the same.

“It is a great way to bring the community together,” she said.

I guess I missed this, I really needed some new socks, I’ve pretty much annihilated mine, after filling them up with my juices.

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.
