Sept. 8, 2021 By Christian Murray

The police have released video of a man who allegedly punched an Asian woman in the face in Jackson Heights last month and hurled a volley of racist statements.

The victim, a 56-year-old woman, was walking in the vicinity of 37th Avenue and 75th Street at around 6:55 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 27 when a man struck her in the back of the head with a plastic bottle before punching her in the face.

The suspect then ripped off the victim’s chain off her neck and made a number of anti-Asian statements.

The man then fled the scene on foot eastbound on 37th Road. He took the woman’s chain.

The alleged perpetrator is described as being a dark-skinned male who wore a dark-colored shirt, black shorts and black sneakers.

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).

Op-ed: Congestion pricing would do much more harm than good for New Yorkers

Jun. 11, 2024 By Assemblymember David I. Weprin

Like many residents throughout the five boroughs and across the New York Metro Area, I was pleasantly surprised by Governor Kathy Hochul’s decision to “indefinitely pause” the implementation of Congestion Pricing. Rather than seeing this as a cynical calculation, as some have alleged, I see the Governor’s decision as a deeply pragmatic response to the crescendo of public concerns that I and many others have raised for years. As the countdown to the June 30 implementation date neared, everyday New Yorkers did what we do best: we spoke up for ourselves and said we won’t accept a bad deal! I applaud Governor Hochul for having the courage not just to listen to us but to take a tough stand against this misguided policy.
