LIC welcomes new DOH Queens embraces Health Dept.'s arrival as 'shot in the arm'

Queens Times Ledger wrote about the opening of the new headquarters of the NYC DOH in LIC.

The city Department of Health has finally come to Queens, holding its grand opening Friday by tying the bow on one of many moves that it is hoped will revitalize the Long Island City area near Queens Plaza.“It’s a great shot in the arm and a vote of confidence from the city to relocate such an important agency in the heart of Long Island City,” said state Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria).

“One would hope and anticipate that there are some additional stores that are coming as a result of this development,” Van Bramer said. The 2 Gotham Center location has retail space available on the ground floors.

LIRR trains idle too loudly: Sen. Gianaris

Queens Times Ledger wrote about my efforts to rid Long Island City of idle LIRR trains.

State Sen. Michael Gianaris (D-Astoria) is incensed over the MTA idling its trains near Borden Avenue in Long Island City, but the Long Island Rail Road said that while the running motors may be loud, they are also a necessity.

The LIRR yard outside the tunnel to Manhattan has been used by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and LIRR’s trains, many of which are now run by diesel fuel, for 100 years. Like most of Long Island City, the adjacent area has been seeing increased residential growth with condominium complexes like The Foundry, Murano Condo and One Hunters Point being built along Borden Avenue near the yard.
