Happy June, readers!
Summer is finally here, which means longer days, spend-ing
more time outside and of course, some exciting stories
coming out of western Queens.
This month we’re showcasing a new program at My Tree-house,
an early development center in Long Island City. The
center’s founder Robert Cilinghir is rolling out an introduction
to STEM for children ages 3 and under. Check out how this
new program will give babies and toddlers a head start and give
them confidence when learning these subjects in the future.
In our real estate section, we head to Astoria where ac-tor
Robert De Niro is involved in a contract to buy a lot with
plans of possibly building a film studio. We also show you a
new $1.36 million apartment in Hunters Point, complete with
exposed brick, ensuite bath and a home office.
We’re also reporting on the latest news and events coming
right out of the communities where you live and work. Anyone
who lives along the 7 train route knows that it’s in desperate
need of repairs. Read about what the New York City Transit
President Andy Byford has to say about the repairs that are
coming to the crumbling train line. The Board of Elections
also announced that Queens now has 14 early voting sites
following pushback from elected officials. Check out these
stories and more in the community news section.
As an homage to Pride Month, we tell you about the popu-lar
drag brunch at Fresco’s Cantina in Astoria. Restaurateur
Brian Martinez tells us about the special celebrations he has
planned for the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
Also in our features section we talk to “Chopped” champion
and Astoria resident Nicholas Poulmentis about his newly
opened restaurant Oli.Vine. The former owner of Akrotiri talks
about how he’s bringing the tastes of his home on the Greek
island of Kythira to Queens.
As always, check out our art exhibit and events calendars
to find out what to see and do in western Queens this month.
