Greetings, LIC Courier readers!
Whether you celebrate the holidays or not, we at the
magazine hope that you’re having a lovely December so
far. Here are the stories you should know about in western
Queens this month.
In our What’s New section of the magazine, LaGuardia
Community College in Long Island City has just opened the
10,000 Small Businesses Education Center. Current students
and alumni of Goldman Sachs’ 10,000 Small Businesses
program will be able to use the facilities for training and other
Borough President Melinda Katz announced her bid for
Queens District Attorney in our Community News section as
did civic leader Brent O’Leary, who is getting a head start in
preparing for the 2021 City Council race.
We follow Jesse Delacruz, a LaGuardia Community Col-lege
student who is food insecure in our Features section
and learn that students in Queens colleges have greater
struggles with having a regular source of food than other
students in New York City.
Our Transportation section tells you about new updates
about how to get around in Queens, from LaGuardia’s new
Terminal B to new Citi Bikes as part of a citywide expansion.
After a wildly successful first run, the World’s Fare will be
back for a second year in May 2019. Find out what to expect
for the festival’s return!
As always, we have some fun suggestions for local events
and art exhibits to attend. If you have any tips or news you
would like to share with us, send those to email@example.com.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you all for being such
faithful readers of this magazine. We wouldn’t be anywhere
without you! Have a great December and we’ll see you in 2019.
