Police are searching for a man who stole valuables from a Long Island City hotel guest earlier this month.

The thief entered Aloft Hotel, located at 27-45 Jackson Ave., and went inside a 45-year-old man’s room through his unlocked door at around 4 a.m. on Sept. 6. He then stole the victim’s cell phone and wallet, which contained several credit cards.

The thief used one of the credit cards on the same day to make a $7 purchase at a Duane Reade and a $77 purchase at Gotham Video, both located in Manhattan, police say.

The suspect is described as white, bald, and was last seen wearing a green shirt with the word “audience” on the front.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

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.”
