I wanted to inform you of a recent bank robbery that took place this afternoon. At approximately 2:30 pm, a light skin male Hispanic walked into Popular Bank, located at 918 Seneca Avenue in Ridgewood. This person then passed a note to the teller demanding money. The perpetrator then left the location fleeing westbound on Myrtle Avenue. There were no injuries and no confirmation of a firearm being displayed. If anyone has information on this incident please contact the 104 Precinct at 718-386-3004. This incident is still being investigated, we will update you with any further developments.Police Officer Michael Berish

I hope all is well and this communication finds you in good health and spirits. I wanted to share the following information with you regarding SE859.
Please be advised that the contractor is planning to begin sewer, water main and catch basin work beginning the week of January 20, 2020 in the following area:
Please note that the OCMC allows the contractor to close the street during working hours 7AM to 5PM. There will be a lane available for emergency and local traffic only. After working hours there
will be one lane open for traffic.
On 70th Street/71st Street/Mazeau Street-Due to the close proximity of the school, the contractor will close the street from 9am to 2PM. The street will be fully closed except for emergency and local traffic only during this period. The contractor will however work within the fenced area from 7AM to 9AM and 2PM onwards.
Closing the street late at 9AM and opening the street at 2PM will help minimize the rush hour for the school. There will be one lane available during non-working hours.
We have also authorized the contractor to work Saturday to reduce the schedule.
Work cannot be done at night as OCMC will not grant a permit due to the residential neighborhood.
