Paris Baguette Opens on 71st/Continental

Thanks to readers Joe and Cher for the pics... And yes, Almighty God in Heaven, my discerning eye does indeed spot prepared sandwiches in that cold case. 
I must have been truly a good boy this year to deserve this.

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.

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
