What Do You Want to See at Hunters Point South Park? Make Your Voice Heard With Survey

Yoga at Hunters Point South Park (HPPC)

Nov. 1, 2019 By Allie Griffin

What activities would you like to see take place at Long Island City’s waterfront parks in 2020?

The Hunters Point Parks Conservancy is seeking feedback and is asking the public to fill out an online survey. The survey asks participants what events they would like to take place at the waterfront parks and how existing ones can be improved.

The survey asks respondents to rate past events held in Hunters Point South Park, such as yoga, silent disco, movies, concerts and stargazing, from poor to excellent and what their favorite event was and why.

It also asks what events the park has not held before that residents would like to see happen, as well as movie suggestions for park screenings and how community members use the park in general.

The HPPC is collecting survey answers through the end of the month.

It’s the third year the organization has asked for public input through the survey.

Last year, survey participants recommended more than 150 movies– including family-friendly films, comedies, new releases and children’s animations. Popular suggestions for new events last year included environmental education activities and larger concerts, which the conservancy has already begun to build into its programming.

According to the survey, the most popular events in 2018 were the CinemaLIC movie series, Summer Kids at the Landing, yoga classes, Silent Disco and the LIC Post Waterfront 5K — all of which returned this year.

Would like to see the new Mega Borough Jail, next to the courthouse in LIC. City council wants to bring a horrible jail tower to queens in a peaceful residential area. Let it be in progressive LIC and Astoria. de Blasio, Dana Kaplan, Corey Johnson said it would not devalue property, have it next to overpriced condos.

More police, sanitation cops giving out tickets for garbage, patrolling on foot, more workers sweeping up, garbage containers being emptied as soon as they are full not overflowing. Worker coming up to picnickers and handing them a black garbage bag as a reminder to pick up after themselves before they leave and Shut down the park for a few days for a major cleaning, powerwashing, painting, planting and repair.

Promo for the beer hall at the landing. This ferry stop is just two city blocks away from the actual sheltered Long Island City ferry stop. Duh…
Let’s stop with the mobster like “Conservancy” that is paid by Coffeed to promote crowds, especially evening or late night movies, concerts. For trashing our quiet place, support drinking from the beer hall.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
