JULY 2013 I LIC COURIER I www.queenscourier.com We fi nd ourselves in the middle of the summer season and although we have some rain showers appear here and there, the sun seems to always be on our side. Since its launch a month ago, LIC Flea & International Food Bazaar has seen amazing weekends fi lled with music, food, arts, kids’ activities and so much more fun. It has brought unique vendors selling foods from cuisines from around the world including “designer” delicious chocolates, pizza right out of a portable oven, marshmallows of every fl avor and popcorn like you’ve never had it before. You can also browse antiques, artists’ works, vintage clothing, costume jewelry and more for everyone in the family. LIC Flea is open every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the corner of 46th Avenue and 5th Street in Long Island City. So don’t forget to get the family together and make the LIC Flea your next weekend destination. In this issue you’ll fi nd our reporters are bringing you some great news and sad too. Such as the newly designed courtyard completing the expansion of the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria. But sadly, that the beloved comedy club on Vernon Boulevard, that provides the community with laughs, is up for sale, hopefully it will live on. Then read about a local fi lmmaker and photographer who has captured scenes of his travels around the world but he began here in Long Island City. And then can you imagine someone who has created a monster doll to help your child get to sleep? Read all about it! The fabulous photo on our front cover gives you a chance to learn about exotic meats and dishes served in our own backyard. We also covered the mayoral candidates who came to Long Island City, a place becoming a tech capital in New York, to address the issues of this booming industry. Debuting in August, the Department of Transportation will be placing maps strategically throughout the community to help you navigate our neighborhoods. We always welcome your feedback and want to learn about your explorations. LIC is hotter than ever, being the number one rental market in Queens County and we’re here to report on it for you. I recommend you come down to the Anable Basin and get on a kayak and also enjoy the fabulous parks along the waterfront. We think the LIC Flea is a great new addition to the neighborhood, try it - you’ll love it. Keep having a great summer!
