City Comptroller Scott Stringer will be in Long Island City next month for a town hall in partnership with several area representatives.

The town hall will be held on Oct. 15 at the CUNY School of Law, located at 2 Court Square, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The event is part of a series of town halls Stringer’s office periodically holds around the five boroughs, and are aimed at providing a space for locals to discuss issues in the community.

“Tell us what’s on your mind at out next town hall,” Stringer wrote on Facebook. “You can help improve New York City and learn what the Comptroller’s Office can do for you.”

Partnering organizations at the town hall include LaGuardia Community College, the Court Square Civic Association, the Gantry Parent Association, Queensbridge Tenant Association, and Woodside on the Move, among many more.

Elected officials joining the town hall include Congressmember Carolyn Maloney, Assemblymember Catherine Nolan, and Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer.

The Long Island City event follows a town hall set for the first week of October in Astoria, organized by City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and Council Member Costa Constantinides.

The Comptroller’s town hall also comes at the heels of a set of public hearings, organized by the office, on lead exposure in public housing and the city’s handling of the issue.

Seems to me that Scott Stringer making his first appearance pre-mayoral election before he throws his hat into the ring. For sure he will run for Mayor of NYC, testing the waters, getting his taste for the outer boroughs before jumps in the fray. Anyone him why are our property taxes increasing so much??


I’m going to be in attendance. Come over and say hi, I’m the guy muttering unintelligibly to himself about DumBlasio.


i think instead of a town hall, the pols along with TD Cornerstone and the other developers in the neighborhood should take us all out for dinner. i like to be dined before i get f*&ked.

Queens Public Library hosts conversation with Astoria author on borough history

Borough history geeks will want to mark Tuesday, April 4, on their calendars for the Queens Public Library’s Queens Memory Project online talk with Astoria author Rebecca Bratspies. The processor at CUNY Law in Long Island City will discuss her new book, “Naming Gotham: The Villains, Rogues and Heroes Behind New York’s Place Names,” and take a deep dive into the lives of the people for whom many Queens places are named, some of which have become synonymous with congestion, recreation or culture.

“Queens is the most diverse place on the planet. That diversity is our greatest strength. Our patchwork of unique neighborhoods has welcomed successive waves of immigrants, each adding incredible foods and traditions to our vibrant civic life,” Bratspies said. “Yet it is striking how few of the names that grace Queens’ major infrastructure actually reflect that diversity. By tracing the lives of the people whose names have become New York’s urban shorthand for congestion, recreation, and infrastructure, Naming Gotham offers readers an accessible way to understand the complexity of multiracial, multicultural New York City.”
