To the Greig Delano Melvin of NBC. CBS anchor Otis Livingston told me scary story he had sexual relation with Melvin’s wife, Otis Livingston also wants to kill Melvin’s wife if she will open her mouth. becareful of Otis Livingston he belongs in prison!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


105k? Where goes the 5k come from, exactly? Does this model have the power windows? Art valuation is a joke. Large used as wealth and tax transfer for the rich. Not attacking art, just the batsh!t valuation precision.

If they showed pictures of the missing items maybe somebody will spot them at a flea market.

How does a museum get insurance without cameras these days?

Something's fishy

No cameras inside or out? Alarm set, but didn’t go off? 2 photos worth 105k? Sounds like someone on the inside.

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.”
