Getting around New York City is going to be a lot tougher for many residents of Sunnyside and Woodside this weekend. The service disruptions are due to ongoing construction taking place along the 7 line and are expected to continue until 2017.
Oh my what awful news…How in the world are all our undocumented neighbors going to get to the museums and zoo this weekend? Absolutely the worst train line in NY—-did we win some poll about the 7 train being the best (posted here) a month ago? I for one am taking a long walk down to Home Depot for some scrap lumber and will be leading a whittling class out front of Claret for the remainder of the afternoon. Waiting for the 7 train at 8:15 Monday morning and the announcement comes at the station- the next train 9 minutes!
A public hearing is scheduled for May 18 where residents can voice their opinions on a 10-story, 200-plus unit development that is planned for 50-25 Barnett Ave. The pizzeria is currently owned by Simone Apollonio, who said the pizzeria had a short lease and that the landlord does not want to renew it.
The property has just been listed for rent. According to the ad, the landlord is offering prospective tenants a 5-year lease at a monthly rent of $6,500.
Apollonio said that he only learned that the pizzeria had been listed after receiving a call from Sunnyside Post. He said that business had been good and that he is looking to relocate to another spot in Sunnyside. Sunnyside resident Darron Cardosa has waited tables in Queens and Manhattan for the better part of 25 years. He has dealt with rude customers, troublesome children and entitled mothers with tank-sized strollers.
Cardosa, 48, has plenty to say about his experiences and tells them in a blunt, irreverent way in his first book titled “The Bitchy Waiter,” which has been published by Sterling and is available at Barnes & Noble and at Amazon.
The book is a collection of short stories based on Cardosa’s time working at venues such as the now-shuttered Houlihan's in Times Square, the Metropolitan Club in Manhattan, the former Vynl on the Upper East Side and Quaint in Sunnyside. Nearly one-third of the book is based on his experience working at Quaint, the Sunnyside restaurant located at 46-10 Skillman Ave., Cardosa said in an interview.
Cardosa has been documenting his experiences since 2008, when he launched a blog of the same title. The first story he wrote, he said, dealt with a mother who asked him in a curt fashion to turn off the TV since her children always had to have it off when they ate. Cardosa, much to the woman’s chagrin, said the TV had to stay on, as other customers were watching it.
After years of writing similar stories, he has built a following where he now has about 340,000 Facebook followers and about 15,000 Twitter and Instagram followers.
With the official launch of the book scheduled for the first week of April, Cardosa is anxious about the reception it may receive from some Sunnysiders. Cardosa tells one story about an inebriated patron from the bar located next door to Quaint who bought mashed potatoes to go with her beer. In Cardosa’s telling, the inebriated patron pops into Quaint and asks for a large portion of potatoes. There are several other stories in the book which, when read carefully, might be familiar to a Sunnyside resident or Quaint patron. He provides stories about children who leave cereal everywhere, spill their drinks, sit in strollers blocking the servers, scream and run around the restaurant. Cardosa said parents have always taken it personally when he has tried to provide them with some friendly advice. In one anecdote, Cardosa is baffled by the parents of an overweight child ordering a fattening meal devoid of vegetables—and allowing the child to gulp it down with copious amounts of bread and butter. Then he has a chapter titled “Stroller Bitches from Hell,” based on his experiences working at an Upper East Side restaurant.
He describes the behavior of two moms, one with a double stroller and the other with a single stroller, who barricaded themselves behind the table making it difficult for him to get within two feet of them to serve them. Cardosa, who has lived in Sunnyside for the past 12 years, said that he enjoys working as a waiter—despite the fact that some customers don’t give people in his field the respect they deserve.
The police have apprehended a Woodside man who was allegedly involved in a robbery pattern that involved 16 stores in Queens and Brooklyn, including three in the Sunnyside and two in Woodside.
The police had been looking for August Watkins who they have now charged with one of incidents but are investigating his involvement with others.
The NYPD released a photo of Watkins, 30, on Thursday, who they claimed was involved in a robbery pattern that included several heists in Sunnyside and Woodside. Watkins allegedly would go into stores, simulate having a gun and then would take cash from the register. Subway Restaurant, located at 43-19 Queens Blvd, was targeted Tuesday at 11:45 pm, according to police. 99 Cent Paradise, located at 42-06 Greenpoint Avenue was robbed on Saturday, April 2, at 1:25 pm, according to police. The other incidents took place in Long Island City, Ozone Park and Rego Park in Queens as well as Greenpoint and Williamsburg in  Brooklyn. It was announced today that the money set aside for the Florida’s rejected high speed rail line has been split up between a number of different projects around the country.
Most of the funds are directed toward making track improvements that will allow trains to run faster on existing tracks — the Washington DC to Boston and Chicago to Detroit corridors will benefit from these types of upgrades.
Some transportation persons, however, think that the cash division has overlooked some very important and out of date bottlenecks that are in desperate need of assistance.

While more than 400 billion dollars has been spent on public transit systems since the 1960s, ridership is at a historic low. When people ask why the railroad business failed so many years ago, technically they didn’t….Mostly they simply prioritized freight as opposed to people.
On average, a typical resident of France rides the high-speed rail only about 400 miles per year. I'm glad to see the money go to someplace that can readily use it but don't call it high speed rail.
A giant sucking sound might one day help whisk passengers from New York to Beijing in 2 hours. Easy drives, reliable trains, direct flights or chartered bus services make traveling to Vermont's renowned ski areas easy and affordable.

These retards have been working on the 7 train, shutting down wknd service, for as long as I have been here, ’98. Then there are those pesky customers who require that their every whim be catered to—before leaving a lousy tip. She claims that they were too expensive upon receiving the bill—failing to realize that she ordered a massive quantity.
Then when the meal was done one of the mothers, he wrote, waved the check as if to say, “I am ready for you to take care of my needs. Two such examples are the 100 year-old Portal Bridge in New Jersey and the two overworked tunnels under the Hudson river between New York City and New Jersey — those were scrapped by NJ Governor Chris Christie last year due to his worry that it would cost Jersey taxpayers too much. They could have given the entire $2.4 billion to California, sending a signal that the administration remains serious about building a true high-speed rail network. Some others did fail, they failed because they thought they were in the railroad business; they were not, they were in the transportation business (Just like Microsoft is in the software business.
Robert Goddard, who created the first liquid fuel rocket, designed a prototype over 100 years ago, with the idea of zipping people around between U.S. It combines the technology with magnetic levitation, in theory supporting speeds of up to 2500 mph according to the BBC.

She then wants a partial discount, threatening that she would tell everyone about her experience if she didn’t receive one.


Also, the Mobile Gas Station at 68-09 Queens Blvd was robbed on Thursday, March 31 at 3:40 am. Instead Transpo' secretary LaHood gave only $300 million to California high-speed rail, and instead gave the lion’s share–$800 million–to Amtrak and several eastern states for the Northeast Corridor–a corridor that wasn’t even on the original high-speed rail list until LaHood added it in March. If they don’t offer an evolving and lucrative service every few years, we’ll stop buying it and hardware makers will simply look elsewhere) And when planes and cars outperformed trains in speed and convenience respectivley, they just sunk.

The MTA needs to improve the restoration of service so that we don’t have to deal with residual signal issues from the weekend work. Now they are putting in a new signal system that won’t work especially when the trains become overcrowded and people start holding the doors and delaying the trains. We have millions of people from thousands of origins traveling to thousands of destinations, and you cant just build rail tracks to all those places. Most of the rest of the money went for minor improvements in track to allow trains to run slightly faster than they run today, or for stations, locomotives, passenger cars, and similar facilities that will pretty much operate at conventional speeds. They fly 3 times as much as they ride the rail just to get around France (that doesn’t include international travel). Vermont resorts are again partnering with Porter Airlines for direct-flight winter getaways from Toronto’s Billy Bishop Airport.

Various rail projects funded by the government were more expensive than the cost of leasing each new commuter a new economy automobile in perpetuity.
Carpooling in the United States barely works in these situations, why would transit work; as it is government mandated carpooling. The states are going to pay for it, then have to subsidize as much as half the operating costs to begin with, for years, and when the damn thing is worn out, the few people who still use it are gonna form a lobby to keep it going and rebuild it entirely. Vermont Transit, located in White River Junction Vermont, provides bus routes to and from downtown White River Junction, VT daily.
In fact, some light-rail projects were so expensive it would be cheaper to lease each new commuter a luxury car. And despite the billions they’ve already spent, they only managed to capture less than six percent of the travel market in the Northeast. Their agencies are always on the verge of some fiscal turmoil or some scandals involving cost overruns.
Amtrak also makes daily trips and stops in White River Junction, just nine miles from Quechee Village. Amtrak’s Ethan Allen Express from New York City serves nearby Rutland as well, just 25 miles away.
The most ideal implementations would be between cities separated by dry, flat unpopulated terrain that doesn't freeze, he notes, adding that China and India hold the most promise.Another vactrain developer, Dr. They have ignored maintenance issues in favor of expanding and building additional lines under the belief they’ll draw in more riders and fares to pay for it in the future. James Powell - the co-inventor of Maglev transportation technology and also a nuclear inventor - has proposed a system called Startram that would launch objects into orbit from a cannon-like tunnel.The idea has plenty of supporters, including MIT's Ernst G.
And in California and Florida or other places it may only capture less than one percent of the travel market.
A NYC agency employee turned whistle-blower (and fired for having been found leaking information) has said ”We will never have enough money to keep the system maintained”, ”Doesn’t matter how much you give us it’ll never be enough”. Frankel, emeritus professor of mechanical engineering and ocean engineering, who experimented with "evacuated tubes" in the 1990s. Because every time you give them more money, they just go out and build more instead of maintain what they already have. Frankel proposed a Boston-to-New York vactrain that would take 40 minutes, compared to the normal 4 hours. And the energy their supposed to save is marginal to the enormous amount of energy spent building new infrastructure.
But it would not have outperformed existing bullet train technologies from Japan and China.MIT's Frankel says the time is now right. Even before it pays off, they forget the rails are gonna need constant maintenance and further energy spent rebuilding every 10 years or so to keep it moving so fast. Trains can’t, there built as extremely rigid models; commuting patterns change and the rail declines. Declines in rail use only adapt by raising fares and their not going to skip a station even if it has no passengers.
Your just better off as a community or town not building trains by not having to spend millions or billions of dollars and going heavily into debt when you only have to spend millions of dollar or couple of hundred-thousand dollars on buses.
