A woman was fatally stabbed on New Year’s Day in Astoria in what police said was the first homicide in New York City this year.

The unidentified woman, who is believed to be in her 40s, was found lying unconscious on the sidewalk near the busy intersection of 23rd Street and Broadway at about 8:30 p.m. She had multiple stab wounds, police said.

EMS rushed the victim to Mount Sinai Queens, where she was pronounced dead.

The victim was reportedly spotted by a passer-by on the ground bleeding, according to the New York Post. The area where she was found is along a busy corridor with many local shops and restaurants.

I grew up in this area in the 1950s and 60s. Christopher Walken, the actor, lived in this area as well. What a change in the area from that tranquil time so long ago. And City “leaders”, it seems. don’t seem particularly concerned. It’s just part of everyday life to be accepted and embraced as the new normal. Very very sad.
