It’s a three-year community-driven planning process that aims to improve cycling safety while strengthening bicycle infrastructure within the neighborhoods of Corona, East Elmhusrt, Elmhusrt, and Jackson Heights. This initiative will include programming to encourage residents to use alternative modes of transportation and will draw on local community input to develop on-street improvements such as general traffic calming designs, new bike facilities and traffic flow enhancements.

What's next?
Over the next year, DOT will partner with residents, Queens Community Boards 3 and 4, elected officials and civic groups to hear what neighborhood residents want in an effort to develop community-centric programming, projects and events.

Salud, Amor y Tiempo! Addictive Boutique Brings a Touch of Spain to Jackson Heights
Oct. 21, 2017

East Elmhurst’s commercial lifeblood courses through Northern Boulevard, a bustling corridor of Latin American eateries, small businesses and car dealerships. At the corner of 87th Street, two improbable entrepreneurs have established a tranquil haven for local wine connoisseurs.

When I stop by Addictive Boutique Winery, proprietors Francisco Diaz and Patrick Duong are preparing for a routine Friday night wine tasting.

“I moved to Jackson Heights twenty years ago when I started attending FIT,” says Diaz. “I fell in love with the neighborhood. I never left.”

Diaz initially envisioned the boutique as a clothing store. After several months of poor sales, an employee suggested converting to a wine shop.

“I did not want to open a liquor store, so we decided to focus solely on small-batch wines,” says Diaz. In the same year, Diaz trained to become a certified sommelier. “It was a big change and a huge commitment but we were ready.”

Addictive began with a focus on Spanish wines in large part due to Diaz’s partnership with neighboring Despana Brand Foods, a family-owned chorizo manufacturer and Spanish culinary goods importer since 1971.

I don't get how it is even possible to maintain a lease for so long without being able to actually open for business. This situation is also true of The Queensboro on Northern, which has been "coming soon" for how many years now? Three maybe? How can this go on for so long? It must cost a fortune.

I wonder how long it will take The Arepa Lady to actually open in the former Ingrid's Salon. Or the two restaurants that are going into the Bruson Building. I do see renovation work being done at Bruson, but have not seen any activity at Swim Two Birds for months. Seems very strange.

Tax write offs

Explain please.
Check out Make Queens Safer Facebook page for info on this Saturday, 10/28 Zombie Ride. Loads of fun, and police escorted 5 mile route.
There will be more family rides and events this coming year. We won a "Building Healthier Communities" grant, in partnership with Jackson Heights Beautification Group.

Funny thing happened to me few times already. My receipt was let's say $5.02 cents, or $8.01 and overtime they take $6 or $9 and give me back 98 or 99 cents. Funny because every time I leave 10-15 cents to cashier, but from now on I won't do it again. I'll wait for every cent to be returned. I think this lady was the owner, not one of the girls who work there.
