Jan. 25, 2021 By Christina Santucci

Police released surveillance video Friday of two men involved in a shoot out in front of Hotel Nirvana in the Dutch Kills section of Long Island City on New Year’s Day.

The NYPD is calling on the public to help them identify the men as well as a get-away vehicle used by one of the suspects.

Police said that just after 1 a.m. on Jan. 1 a man shot at a group of people standing near 12-02 37th Ave. and hit a 19-year-old man in the stomach. The victim was brought to Weill Cornell Medical Center in stable condition.

One of the men who accompanied the victim fired several shots back at the initial shooter.

The suspect who fired the first shots and hit the 19-year-old fled in a gray four-door Infiniti sedan afterward, police said. Police released a photo of the vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip to the CrimeStoppers website.

Obviously these two are nothing short of punks. Hopefully the police will find these two and place them where they belong….in prison.

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.”
