These attacks are not the girls' fault in any way. But knowing there's a rapist, possibly two on the loose, why are these girls walking around late at night alone?

I have covered stories from all parts of Queens on this blog and have visited most of Queens and taken pictures that have appeared on this blog. If the content is not to your liking, start your own damn blog.

Did you folks ever stop to think that the areas of Queens covered most frequently on this blog have more crap in them than your precious enclaves in northeastern Queens and that's why there is more to post about them? You want more stories related to northeastern Queens? Then you must be secretly hoping that northeastern Queens becomes as ghettoized as western Queens. Be grateful that your nabes aren't covered as much.

That story about the fire in the old mansion in Richmond Hill is going to be in the NY Times because I forwarded it to their reporter for the city section. Now he is not only writing about the fire but is also researching the history of the house.

No, never secretly hoping for that. But this section of Queens is seeing it's share of crap. I'll agree though not as much as other neighborhoods. But we have our share of McMansion crap and multi-family replacing single family crap all over the place.

Sorry, slip of the fingers. Meant italian girl, not crap. Oops.

Northeast Queens is a sterile as an Operating Room in a highly affluent area.

Oh, please, Crappy, can't you regale us with some Little Neck drivel?

Maybe now Richmond Hill will welcome cops instead of always bitchin' about cops.
