Introducing Edge of the City Unfiltered

I started a new area of the blog that is totally unfiltered, unmoderated and unedited. I thought since many readers of the blog are quite opinionated about what's going on in the neighborhood they might appreciate a place to express themselves more openly and also to start their own topics for discussion. If you see something going on in the neighborhood that you just really want to discuss with others, this is the place to do it (and you can always email me about it, too, of course, at, like many of you already do!) This new message board area won't be for everyone, but hopefully it will serve as an interesting and unique companion to Edge of the City blog.

You can find it at the following link, or via the blog's Top Menu: Edge of the City Unfiltered

Let me know how you like this new feature, if you find it easy to use, or have any problems with it, by commenting below or by emailing me at 


  1. Awesome idea! Will be posting there shortly, thanks Drake!

  2. Hi All -
    Arbor Close is holding its annual multi-family yard sale starting tomorrow morning at 9:00 a.m.
    We expect several families on 75th Avenue between Queens Boulevard and Austin Street to be out selling items. There might also be some people selling on 75th Road, also between Queens Boulevard and Austin Street.
    We expect people to be selling toys, clothes, books and household items.
    Stop by and meet your neighbors!

  3. Drake, can you confirm if the Austin St. Street Fair is this coming weekend or next weekend? Sorry to ask this here, but my daughter really wants to go and you always seem to know these things! :)

    1. Yes, this Sunday.
