The land Queens College is on used to be an annex of N.H.S. It was an agricultural program, believe it or not.

IT WAS GANG RELATED...FREAKING COPS AND NEWS DONT DO THEIR DAM RESEARCH OR MAYBE THEY JUST DONT CARE

Joe said...

That your multiculturalism for ya.
You cant tame wild animals Schools now have to be treated like prisons. This means armed guards, random metal detector scans and locker checks. Something nobody wants to face.

Newtown and that area was becoming a sh*thole as far back as 1965 according to Alumni Gene Simmons.
It was cleaned up for Robert Moses Worlds Fair then left for dead like Willets Point.

Wait until the Gangs have a new High School to go to in Maspeth. They can roam Grand Avenue and attack the little kids from PS58 and IS73. Hope the 104 recruits enough cops to patrol the area. They're going to need the manpower.

I happened to be listening on my scanner at the time, they have the name and address of the perp, just a matter of time before he gets arrested or turns himself in.

The school was on lock down, a perimeter was set up around the school.

This incident will be overshadowed by the stabbing at a high school in Washington Heights today. 16 stab wounds vs 2 stab wounds at Newtown.

from a 1986 Newtown H.S.dropout,I should have never transferred there from St.John's Prep.

Joe said...

The 104 recruit in enough cops to patrol the area ?

Never gonna happen, 104 is a paid retirement home for the special and those who "played ball.
Besides the mayor and his friends hate those "pain in the neck" old NYC Maspeth people.

The mayor and his friends are set on forcing a "white Flight" so they can blockbust the whole zip code.

Flooding the Maspeth schools and streets into a set from "Planet of The Apes" or some combat zone in El Salvador was likely plan B all along.

I once pink-slipped a student in the NYC High School I taught at in the late 70's. He showed me the handle of a what looked like a gun in my home room class. The Dean could not search him because of civil liberties issues, but could only ask "Domingo, it says here, that Mr. GeorgetheAtheist saw a gun in your pocket. Do you have a gun?" The Dean returned the pink-slip to my teacher in-box. It read "Domingo says he does not have a gun."

If I have time, I'll tell you later about the one with the machete.

Joe said...

Civil liberties my ass !
Your lucky they didn't arrest YOU George.

A buddy of mine is a Port Washington math teacher who flunked some disorderly 12 year old brat from Manorhaven who refused to do her schoolwork, homework, flunked her tests.

In the next couple days these lawyers come up to the the school and accuse him of being intolerant and all this other crap.
They were demanding he "re-check" the test scores or give easier test to the "poor misguided children of immigrants" kids.
When he refused the administrators put him in some "rubber room" for 2 weeks followed by a couple court cases.
During this time the school then replaced him with a younger teacher who passed the whole class.

I am a student at Newtown as well (planning to transfer as soon as the school year is over) This is stupid gang related crap man. Most of the kids in Newtown are just out of control. And there aren't any metal detectors. They most likely will bring in the metal detectors next week

I'm going to post this for all the Maspeth moms and dads.

Some time around 1974 I had a "Ramiro" Jap me in the eye with a knife coming around a stairway landing at K Lane HS.
Luck have it I fended it off somewhat with only 3 stitches side my head.

Earlier that day I had refused to "loan" Ramiro my bus pass and spit in his face embarrassing him in front his friends.

The cops and principal did nothing to this prick who was nothing but trouble.
A couple days the SOB came at me again with a sucker punch i was waiting for.
I stepped on his feet sending him backward, broke his elbow then nose and teeth on the corner of a table in the cafeteria in front of his friends again.
Blood shot everywhere I thought I killed him.
His friend, then my friends and our Black friends jumped in must have been 10 - 15 cops cars.

It was clearly self defense but only us Italian kids from Ridgewood got kicked out of school.

If these people in Maspeth want to prevent this for their teens they better give them some good self defense lessons or fight the people pushing this this like there is no tomorrow.
The cops aren't gonna be around when you need them, don't believe what ant rep tells you

Joe said...

Rookie teachers are ruining everything is exactly what the F_ing a'O mayor and his posse want !
A dumb unknowing society is an easily controlled "do as I say" society.

Those the Last of the Moheekins Polish, Irish , Italian holdouts in Maspeth Ridgewood are a threat and barrier to the Bloomberg mobs plans.

The way I see it this a'O mayor and his posse are no different then Hitler and his SS officers.
Only difference being Lawyers & Money are the new guns & gas.

Speaking of learning English - the word is "they're" not "their" in your sentence.

Their, they're and there are commonly mixed up words. Do you have a point to make or are you just being an ass?

These comments are so disheartening. I'm a Spanish kid who had to go through this public school system and I dreaded going to school because of stuff like this. But I hate that it's a racial issue with you people, as if there aren't thousands of Spanish kids in public schools right now wishing they could go to schools without this BS. Gangs are for idiots, plain and simple, but those idiots come in all colors and violence like this is not inherent to my people.

Most of the disturbing comments - if not ALL - are being made by one manic depressive.

I was a Newtown "Aggie" in the 1950's. In my freshman year the annex was a one story wooden schoolhouse across from the southeast gate of Queens College. The wooden building was abandoned in my soph and junior years when we were transferred to a new building on Main St which I think is now a grade school, right next to what is now John Bowne HS. My senior year I spent in the main building in Elmhurst which to me was like a prison and I learned nothing.

Most of QC was then the Aggies' farm, with the barn for the horse team, the chicken coops, and the pigpen where QC's Fitzgerald gym and the tennis courts are now.

Re objections to the Spanish only speakers: I agree they should learn English. Here's why: In Europe it's said if you speak two languages you are bilingual, three languages trilingual and so on, but only one language you must be American. So those who insist on only speaking Spanish are being ignorant like most of the rest of us Americans (including me).

Fed up in Elmhurst said...

"Here's why: In Europe it's said if you speak two languages you are bilingual, three languages trilingual and so on, but only one language you must be American."

News flash: This isn't Europe. Europeans really have no choice but to also learn English because for many of those countries, tourism is the number one industry. And who travels and spends the most there? Americans. (You know, those dummies who won't learn a second language because they don't have to. Being on top has its privileges.) I'm sure you're also well aware that the people flooding our schools are also not European. If they were, according to your own witticism, they would come already knowing English.

And P.S.

Foreign language is required in U.S. high schools and in many colleges in order to graduate.

So if I have to learn one of their languages even though I have no desire to visit their countries, then they should be required to learn mine, since this is the country they CHOSE to live in.

There truly is no need for different threads here since the same person talks ONLY about the same thing in each one REGARDLESS of the topic.

You're a drag, and you bring down the quality of the blog.

There have been stabbings in high schools in ALL the boroughs since I went to HS which was in the 60s - and in our best ones at that. So hang it up already.

1965 - passage of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965 which allowed oodles of less desirable immigrants into the country.

Newtown HS is a good school. I went there in the 90's and I'm fine. The students (if you can call them that) that take the school like a gang out are, the ones that start trouble. They are the ones make the school look bad. They should be expelled. The reports are blowing things out of proportion. They just want to make news. The government should be more worried about the schools and, the people that take advantage of welfare. Instead of increasing taxes and transportation (good for nothing bloomberg and obama). This will be a shame if will school is shut down. Newtown is not located in Flushing. It's between Corona and Woodhaven.

It saddens me to read about how my high school has become one of the worst schools when at the time I attended it was one of the best. I graduated from Newtown in 1963. We couldn't pull the crap that these students pull. There should be a strict dress code and the parents should be held responsible for the horrible behavior.
