This is a very important junction. In case you don’t know why, this is the exact place where the cover of a classic hip-hop album called, Nas – “Illmatic” was taken. I should have known that this stuff still happens! I hope that the woman gets well soon as well.

The police of the 114th precinct should do what the I.D.F. does: Find out which apartment SNOOZE lived in and bulldoze the building. Next, lock up his parents until SNOOZE turns himself in.


gee Mr. JVB said Queensbridge Projects was so very safe and he is always down there — well again he is lying — next it will be a photo-op with him down there — prayers for the woman –


Gee Mr.Anonymous- You must be new to the area, Queensbridge is exponentially safer then it was in the past. Just ask anybody who has lived in Queens more than a couple of months. Crime has been reduced nobody said it was eliminated. You need to learn the difference between the two.


Crime and shootings can happen anywhere. Someone was shot by people pretending to by UPS workers in the Ditmars area last month.
