My child is a”Third Generation Astorian”;at this rate their will not be a”Fourth Generation of Astorians”in my family.Gentrification,being priced out,no sense of community what so ever.Instead of building more …upgrade exiting structures.why not go to Louisiana and others states and help them rebuild after disaster…we have an abundance of empty overpriced units in Astoria already.

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.
