I don’t know why My comments are not going through or they are not printing them . I am just telling people on this site the FAKE MRLIC wrote the 2 Feb. 18, comments. The one on immigrants people who read here should know, I am only against Illegal Immigration not LEGAL immigration.


If this guy was not such an obvious clown in a costume, we would be able to tell who he is by the name on his jacket. But by the looks of his beard, he is just pretending to be a gas station worker who wears polo sweatshirts with an artisanal beard. You should be able to find him on a barstool at a local brewery or at an overpriced bearded person coffee shop somewhere working more on his style that on his substance.


MRLIC, of course you can blame this on immigrants…..but without any concrete information about either person, you would simply be stating more about you lack of intelligence than anything else.

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.”
