The Sunrise At Night

My friend sent me this cool pic of the new building on 72nd Road. If you're interested in checking out this new apartment building, here's the link: The Sunrise Forest Hills

The Grill on Restaurant Row is Closed

Not sure if this is temporary or permanent. No signs on the windows either way. I like the food at this place, though find the prices too high for what it offers/ the demographics of this neighborhood. My current choice for a Mediterranean restaurant in the area is the new Rimtin on Metropolitan Ave. I still miss Wafa's though!  Boy, Restaurant Row sure is going through a period of change these days.

                    Earth-from-Apollo-17
COMMUNITY GREEN TEAM FORMING to WORK on CLIMATE CHANGE ISSUES

Monday, December 4, 7 p.m.

at the Central Queens Y
in Forest Hills




Scientists are telling us:  we are at a critical moment on climate change.  

It is urgent that we take action now to protect our planet.

In Forest Hills, we are forming a community green team that will get involved locally on the issue of climate change.  A few possible ideas for action include:
  • Advocating for climate change legislation
  • Public education: films or speakers to educate the public about climate change, food and water issues
  • Community solar, energy audits & energy saving rebates:  Public programs to educate the public to reduce their energy use and to sign up for community solar projects.
  • Community gardens or other community projects

Join us at our first meeting on Monday, December 4!  Come ready to share your ideas and to brainstorm with your neighbors!  

For more information, call (718) 268-5011 ext. 151 or email pkurtz@cqy.org.

The Return of MoCA

Looks as though MoCA has re-opened for business.  If they could just fill that huge Santa Fe space after all these years, the remaining half of Pizzaria Uno and Vanilla Sky, 'restaurant row' would be back.


It's Beginning To Look A Lot...

Early Sunday morning crews were out stringing holiday lights along Austin Street.  Between that and the winds and chill in the air, it certainly felt more like December!  Anyone remember when they used to play music too?
