Seriously need to look into how people are driving in Astoria. People go way to fast, beeping all over the place. There needs to be stiffer penalties. I’ve yet to see any tickets being given out.

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.
