Judge Gardephe, in his opinion, seemed to agree, noting that “once the lies and fantastical elements are stripped away, what is left are deeply disturbing misogynistic chats and emails written by an individual obsessed with imagining women he knows suffering horrific sex-related pains, terror and degradation.” But the communications alone, he indicated, were not grounds enough to warrant his conviction. -CONTINUED FROM PG. 12- City Provides Funds For Pavilion Fix Blasio, Speaker Mark-Viverito and the City Council have recognized the importance of taking this first step to help ensure the New York State Pavilion will be enjoyed and admired by Queens residents and visitors for many decades to come,” Katz said. Along with the nearby Unisphere, the New York State Pavilion has become a symbol of the Borough of Queens that reminds us of the excitement and hopefulness the world felt at the beginning of the Space Age. The Pavilion keeps us connected to that history while it also serves as an icon of Queens that is recognized around the world.” The Pavilion was designed for the 1964 World’s Fair by the late Philip Johnson to refect a Space-Age architectural style. In April, the National Trust for Historic Preservation included the Pavilion on its list of National Treasures, one of only 44 sites in the country to receive this designation. This program recognizes historically, culturally and architecturally important sites to raise awareness and funding for their preservation, a statement said. “Its preservation will aid our efforts to rebrand Queens as a toplevel tourist destination that we call ‘The World’s Borough,’” Katz added. “Restoring the Pavilion is the right thing to do at just the right time,” Peg Breen, president of the New York Landmark’s Conservancy said. “We agree with the Borough President that the restored Pavilion will be a wonderful representation of the vitality of the borough and provide a space for all kinds of events that will draw not just people from Queens, but people from around the city and visitors from around the world.” -CONTINUED FROM PG. 17- Myrtle Avenue Business Improvement District (MABID) President Herman Hochberg, at left, and Executive Director Ted Renz spoke on how Ridgewood has changed at the group’s annual meeting last Tuesday, June 24.

If the design is approved this summer, construction could begin as early as November, according to DOT. “It’s good for the residents and the merchants,” Hochberg said. “It’s a win-win.” Changing Ridgewood With many new families and young people moving to the area, Hochberg related an anecdote about the neighborhood, saying real estate brokers have been calling every day asking him if he wants to sell his building. “After 65 years in business I have never had that before,” he said. “We are definitely in a state of change. We must work even harder to make sure our future is brighter than even before.” He advised that, with relatively affordable home and rental prices, young professionals and families are beginning to move into Ridgewood, changing the community. “We are going through a big metamorphosis,” Hochberg said. “A lot of things are happening on Myrtle Avenue. We are one stop away from Williamsburg and Greenpoint. This is really is an important time for an organization like ours, so we can plan for the future.” “For 26 years we’ve been fighting to keep our avenue clean, busy and up to date. We have succeeded,” he added. A market study, along with the most recent census figures support anecdotal evidence from business owners and residents, Ted Renz, executive director of the BID said. He spoke on wanting to bring a diverse mix of businesses to the area while preserving the unique character of Myrtle Avenue. “From our perspective we want to maintain the architectural flavor of the ave,” he said. “It’s our goal, within the next year to work with brokers and property owners to get a better mix,” Renz said. “There are a lot of 99 cents stores and nail shops. We already have a mix of regional and national chains with mom and pop stores. We want to maintain that balance,” he said. And with new arrivals moving to Ridgewood from neighborhoods closer to Manhattan, the BID wants to attract businesses they will frequent, including new restaurants. “Our goal is to meet the needs of the families and individuals,” he said. “We’re seeing the fruits of change in this community.” “Change is definitely coming and we want to make sure everyone benefits from it,” Renz added. -CONTINUED FROM PG. 9- concluded his shift—left the plant and walked to his car when Rosado approached. Seconds later, Rosado used the .40-cal. handgun to fire three shots into Rei’s chest. Rosado then returned to the car where Gomez was waiting, and the pair drove back to Florida, authorities said.M embers of the 110th Precinct and EMS units rushed to the scene. Rei died a short time later at the nowdefunct St. John’s Queens Hospital. After news of Rei’s death broke, Brown stated, detectives received a call from Gomez’s friend who previously had the handgun and told them what she knew about Gomez’s relationship with Rei. During the investigation, it was noted, a witness picked Rosado’s photo out of a police array and claimed he saw the suspect loitering outside Corona Ready Mix before the murder took place. Detectives with the NYPD Queens Homicide Squad traveled to Tampa on Dec. 2, 2008 and arrested Rosado on murder charges. The following day, they executed a search warrant at Gomez’s home and found the .40-cal. gun, which—as ballistic tests confirmed—was used in the homicide. Prosecutors said Rosado pled guilty on May 27 of this year to firstdegree manslaughter and is scheduled to be sentenced to 24 years in prison on July 23. The prosecution was conducted by Senior Assistant District Attorney Shawn Clark of the DA’s Homicide Trial Bureau and Assistant District Attorney Michelle Kaszuba of the Homicide Investigations Bureau, under the supervision of Assistant District Attorneys Brad A. Leventhal, bureau chief, and Jack Warsawsky, deputy bureau chief. -CONTINUED FROM PG. 11- SUPPORTING OUR TROOPS MEANS MORE THAN WAVING FLAGS.
