After two weeks of advertising, interviewing tenants, checking job info and credit scores as a Landlord wanted, I was told by the Landlord stop the advertising and the Landlord wanted to rent the apartment herself. They have no idea the tenants you come across, and with no credit or low credit, low income,etc.. So trying to get the right tenant is not easy. So if a Landlord does not see alot of action in 14 days they think the Broker/agent is lazy or not hustling enough.

For decades one of the nicest parades around.  But the past three years the numbers watching the parade are almost less than half of what the crowds used to be. Why? Many old timers past away, some on in age and do not bather to go anymore. 

New owners who have moved in may not be aware, since there is little advertising done. But what a shame to see handfuls every 10 feet along the parade route.

The Knights of Columbus across from the fame diner, used to put out chairs, make hot dogs, etc.. Now this past Sunday the Ladies auxiliary opened up the doors and then had to March since not one man showed up at all. This is a disgrace. Forget the hot dogs, thats not important anyway, but where is the spirit?

As I looked across the street I noticed one of the most notable taverns  was closed, formerly Burkes? Another sign of things from the past.

By the way, at least 30% of the crowd comes Middle Village for years.

Thats because since 1987 there is never anything going on in Middle Village,NY .

Less than 25 Viet Nam Veterans marched in the Parade. No support from other areas? What happened?

A lovely parade as usual, but its over in 30 minutes now. That's another reason everything has dwindled down. part of the problem to.

Next is the 4th of July. In Maspeth and Middle Village the fireworks never dwindle down. It is out of control at Juniper Park that night.

Imagine if fireworks were legal?

Youthmarket coming to Astoria
May 28, 2016 | 1550 views | 0 0 comments | 1 1 recommendations | email to a friend | print
Councilman Costa Constantinides announced $10,000 to open a new Youthmarket at the Astoria park, located at Steinway Street and 23rd Avenue. The funding will be included in next year’s discretionary budget. A Youthmarket is an urban farm stand that hires youth from the community to sell food grown at local farms. The market also provides nutritional education and cooking demonstrations for the young employees. The children learn about economics, business, eating seasonally and supporting local farms. “Eating seasonal and local produce is important for our nutrition and to help support our local farming economy,” Constantinides said. “Buying local produce also reduces pollution that would be created through transporting food long distances. “This Youthmarket will make local produce available for more Astorians,” he added, “while exposing children to valuable lessons about the environment, business and nutrition.” The market will be operated by GrowNYC with community partner Global Kids, and will be open every Saturday from July 9 to November 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last year, Youthmarkets citywide sold more than 300,000 pounds of affordable local food. GrowNYC runs 14 of these markets in various neighborhoods. “Our Youthmarket program is a unique model that teaches neighborhood youth to run a farmstand supplied by GrowNYC’s own wholesale distribution arm,” said executive director Marcel Van Ooyen, “while also helping them to be ambassadors for healthy, seasonal eating to their families and neighbors.” (Benjamin Fang)
