Despite the snow, we were pleased to hear that the NYPD has been busy in Maspeth/Woodside.
Captain Gregory Mackie, Executive Officer at the 104th Precinct, told us that their Vice Enforcement Division conducted undercover operations last night resulting in 6 prostitution arrests in the Maspeth section of "Cometland". There was one arrest at 66-47 Grand Avenue, three arrests at 66-49 Grand Avenue and two arrests at 65-50 Grand Avenue. All arrests were females from massage parlors.
Concerned residents, who thought something more than massages were going on, passed this information on to us we and gave it to the 104th Precinct for referral to Vice Enforcement. We want to thank those who took the time to report these locations and encourage those of you who see something to say something. If you want to remain anonymous, pass the information on to us and we'll report it.
For those of you dealing with the illegal parking of trucks near Mazeau Street, you'll be pleased to hear that the Ciprianis truck that was sitting there for several days has been summonsed. Action was taken because someone reported it.
Lastly, the 104th Precinct is continuing to monitor the illegal school bus parking around PS 229 in Woodside. These buses take away valuable parking for residents. Captain Mackie said the 104th will continue to monitor the situation and issue summonses when warranted. Enforcement has been ongoing because residents reported the problem.
- Don't forget Daylight Savings Time kicks in this weekend. It's time to "spring ahead".
