We are happy to report that our dear friend and LIC Courier writer Alan Capper is feeling better and sharing with us another interesting piece. This month he speaks to an Astoria resident who is a huge fan of the Green Bay Packers football team. Aaron Nagler has an encyclopedic knowledge of the triumphs and idiosyncrasies of the game and has been quoted on CNN, in Sports Illustrated, the New York Times, all to go along with regular appearances on several national NFL radio programs. Even though Capper is feeling much better, we still continue to wish him a full speedy recovery and can’t wait to have him back in Long Island City. For our front cover this month we got the opportunity to interview the two founding members of Beecher’s Fault, a local band looking to bring a change to pop music. They tell us about their journey from writing music together to become a band of four and going off to release two Eps. The band even won Battle of the Bands in 2012 going up against more than 200 other bands citywide. After reading our article on the group, check out their music and maybe take a trip down to their next show! In this September issue we report on the completion of the steel construction phase of Mount Sinai Queens’ $125 million expansion. We can’t wait to see the results. This month we also welcome the launch of the borough’s first ‘Bike Friendly Business District” in Sunnyside and we celebrate alongside LIC’s Secret Theatre after it surpassed its fundraising campaign goal, raising over $10,000 to help keep its doors open. Congratulations to both! We spoke with an Astoria great-grandmother and active resident who celebrated her 100th birthday together with local elected officials and four generations of family members. We also announced the upcoming 90th anniversary of an Astoria church that has been giving back to the community. Also, we are excited to report that the LIC Flea & Food, located at the outdoor lot at Fifth Street and 46th Avenue, will once again be open both Saturdays and Sundays after the Astoria Flea & Food at Kaufman Astoria Studios has closed for the season after months of successful Sundays. Make sure to make the popular Long Island City market your next weekend destination! Even though we might have a bittersweet feeling now that the summer is drawing to an end, we should still hold our arms open wide to welcome the fall and continue exploring the neighborhoods. Don’t forget to share your findings with us, send us your ideas and feedback as well. Enjoy and see you in the fall!
