FORECLOSURE RESCUE
SCAMS Be careful of people
who approach you with offers
to “save” your home. There
are individuals who watch for
notices of foreclosure actions
in order to unfairly profit from
a homeowner’s distress. You
should be extremely careful
about any such promises and
any suggestions that you pay
them a fee or sign over your
deed. State law requires anyone offering such services for
profit to enter into a contract
which fully describes the
services they will perform
and fees they will charge, and
which prohibits them from
taking any money from you
until they have completed all
such promised services.

NYPD Promises To Solve Jogger’s Murder
By Jon Cronin
Editor
After a week of heart wrenching over the murder of their beloved
neighbor Karina Vetrano, the Howard
Beach community’s fearful residents
filled St. Helen’s Church on Monday
night to hear officials explain how
families will continue to be safe and
what is being done to find the vicious
murderer.
On Aug. 2, Vetrano, 30, had been
running westbound on a secluded
pathway in Spring Creek Park at 5 p.m.
When her father didn’t hear from her
by 7 p.m., he called a friend and neighbor in the NYPD. A search party was
formed and Vetrano’s body was found
at 9 p.m. in the weeds about 20 feet
off the path. The evidence shows that
she was beaten, sexually assaulted and
strangled to death in broad daylight.
Officials stated that the church was
beyond its 450-seat capacity. Many
more residents stood outside St. Helen’s listening to the meeting through
speakers.
Chief of Patrol Carlos Gomez assured the crowd they would see an increase in police officers on their streets
as well as specially trained officers who
are part of the NYPD’s Strategic Response Group.
Gomez, who was the 106th Precinct commanding officer from 1999
to 2000, said, “I really have a connection and a bond to this community. I
still speak to many friends that I have
made here.
“The commitment is here from our
department. I promise you, we will
solve this.”
Twice during the evening, residents
asked if their families were safe. Chief
Michael Kemper replied early in the
evening that he could not answer the
question. Gomez said later in the evening that there is an increased police
presence in the area.
In the crowd, the civilian patrol
group the Guardian Angels listened
in. After the meeting, Greg Anzuela,
a Far Rockaway resident and member
of the Guardian Angels, stated that
about five of their members have been
patrolling the neighborhood during
the last week.
Kemper said so far they have received 30 tips on their Crime Stopper hotline. “They are each being fully
vetted.” The reward for information
leading to the arrest of the murderer
was doubled on Tuesday to $20,000.
He noted they have gotten a dozen
videos from homes and businesses
in the community that they are analyzing. Kemper added, “I have never
seen the level of cooperation between
police and community that I have seen
in the last week, and I’ve been doing
this a long time.” He pointed out that

After the meeting, a police source
stated that although the encampments
are a frequently discussed subject, they
had yet to see any.
Police also fielded a question on
whether or not this murder could be
related to another of a New York City
resident murdered while jogging near
her parents’ home in Massachusetts.
Kemper stated the NYPD has shared
notes with the Massachusetts police.
Regarding a possible link between
the Howard Beach murder and a more
local sexual assault case, the mother
of a young woman, who was beaten,
then raped and left propped up at the
Social Security office near Beach 113
Street in Rockaway Park, spoke at the
meeting asking for attention in her
daughter’s case. She said her daughter
was in Elmhurst Hospital Center for a
week before she knew where she was.
The woman said she had spoken with
officers at the 100th Precinct, but she
did not feel she was getting attention.
Kemper stated that he would speak
with her after the meeting, to which
the crowd cheered.
Kemper stated that they didn’t
believe there was a link between the
Rockaway Park incident and the one
in Howard Beach.

Attorney Calls Jamaica Attack A Hate Crime
By James Farrell
Staff Writer
An assault on a Bangladeshi immigrant should be prosecuted as a hate
crime, attorney Ali Najmi argued on
Monday at a press conference in front
of the Queens Criminal Court in Kew
Gardens.
Immigrant Gazi Rahman was allegedly assaulted by a stranger, later
identified as a man named Christopher Porr, while talking on his cell
phone on Hillside Avenue in Jamaica back in May. Rahman suffered a
broken nose, and witnesses’ pictures
showed a significant amount of blood
at the scene. Immediately after the attack, both Rahman and Porr were arrested for assault and released on desk
appearance tickets. However, at the
press conference, Najmi pointed to
newly uncovered NYPD surveillance
footage that he said exonerates Rahman of wrongdoing. Najmi added that
witness testimony – which included
several accounts of Porr’s shouting
“F**k Indians” as he attacked Rahman
– shows that the attack should be tried
as a hate crime.
Najmi said that he had shared copies of the video, witness testimonies and
pictures of Rahman’s injuries at a July 8
court date at the Kew Gardens Criminal Court. Since then, Najmi added,
the Queens District Attorney’s office
said they would drop the

Residents Voice Concerns About Treetop
By James Farrell
Staff Writer
Residents from across seven Flushing buildings gathered at St. George’s
Episcopal Church to voice concerns
over recent actions by New Jerseybased development company Treetop
Development, which owns the buildings in question. The corporation has
been exploiting loopholes to raise
rents and drive low-income residents
out of their apartments in order to begin gentrifying the area, the residents
argued.
The meeting was organized by the
Flushing Rezoning Community Alliance. Faith in New York, an interfaith
organization, was also in attendance.
Andrew Hausermann, the director of
Organizing for Faith in New York,
explained that the organization had
heard many complaints from residents
in the seven buildings, which Treetop
purchased six months ago.
“This company, Treetop, has a
bad history,” Hausermann said to
the hundred or so residents in attendance. “They have a history of buying
rent-stabilized units in neighborhoods
that they say are soon upcoming
neighborhoods, might be gentrifying
neighborhoods, and they’ll buy these
rent-stabilized buildings, run out the
low-income tenants and then sell the
buildings for a big profit.”

Attorneys with Faith in New
York speak to Flushing residents
about Treetop Development.
Hausermann also said that the
company was accused of similar practices in Williamsburg and Harlem.
Among the chief complaints raised
by residents is what they say is a loophole in New York State law that allows
for permanent rent increases in rentstabilized units. Landlords can implement these raises to fund construction
projects called major capital improvements. These MCI increases are problematic, Hausermann explained, because even after the project is funded,
the rent increase can remain in place,
which could drive low-income tenants
out. When the rent reaches a certain
threshold, it eliminates the rent-sta-
bilization designation, Hausermann
said. These concerns have been raised
in the wake of a high level of construction going on around the buildings.
One building in question, 132-40
Sanford Ave., received a stop-work
order after Councilmember Peter Koo
(D-Flushing) voiced concerns raised
by constituents. A June stop-work
order complaint on the Department
of Buildings website said that workers were “removing asbestos without
protection” and cited debris in the
hallway. Another complaint from July
said that work resumed at the site despite the stop-work order.
Another resident, who asked not to
be named, had a copy of her lease that
she showed to the Queens Tribune.
She pointed to the rent and noted
that a price had been written out over
a white strip. She said the original,
agreed-upon rent had been whited
out, and a higher number had been
written in.
Faith in New York provided four
attorneys at the meeting, to whom
residents could present their cases.
They encouraged all residents with
concerns to meet with someone so
they could see what other problems
may exist, organize and begin to assess next steps.
State Sen. Toby Stavisky (DFlushing), Koo and Assemblyman
Ron Kim (D-Flushing) were all in
attendance as well.
Koo told the Queens Tribune that
they have constituents reaching out
about rent increases of nearly $600 to
$800.
“While we are committed to investing in the buildings as a way to improve the living experience, we’re also
committed to maintaining the character of the surrounding neighborhood
by keeping rents in line with those
of comparable properties in the area,”
said Azi Mandel, managing member
of Treetop, in a statement. “Furthermore, Treetop stringently abides by all
New York City housing regulations,
and we vehemently dispute any accusation regarding the illegal alteration
of lease agreements in any manner
whatsoever.”
A spokesman for Treetop also told
the Queens Tribune that the claims
about MCIs were unfounded.
“We haven’t applied for any MCIs.
The previous owner, they replaced
the boilers, they replaced the elevators, they applied for MCIs, they got
the MCIs,” the spokesman said. The
spokesman also added that the manager has tried to assure tenants that if
they already got an MCI from a previous owner, they would not get another
one.

An open letter to
mayor Bill de Blasio
A Better Park For Karina
The murder of Karina Verano in Howard Beach last week has left
that community – and indeed the whole borough – shocked. We are
confident that the NYPD will do everything they can to find her killer
and bring him to justice. But in this senseless tragedy, we also see an
opportunity to do something positive for the community.
The site of Verano’s murder, Spring Creek Park, is one of the few
underutilized green spaces in Queens. In an area where there isn’t
great access to parks, it is not a surprise that residents like Verano
descended on Spring Creek for recreation. However, Spring Creek’s
overgrown flora and desolate paths make it a perfect spot for criminal activity – a problem residents have been complaining about for
decades. In 2013, the corpses of two murder victims, killed by a rival
drug dealer, were dumped in the park. Neighborhood youths have for
generations used the concealing brush of the park to hid their illicit
drinking and smoking.
But the dangers at Spring Creek Park are not just limited to criminal
activity. Fires regularly burn the overgrown phragmites that infest the
parkland and grow to great heights – one of the reasons the park is
so secluded. A fire in March 2014 nearly burned the entire park and
threatened a number of homes along 83rd Street. The DEC plans to
reconstruct the park would also include eliminating the inflammable
phragmities.
Three years ago, the state Department of Environmental Conservation unveiled a proposal to reconstruct the park. The main aim of the
reconstruction was to protect the neighborhood from flooding in the
event of another storm like Hurricane Sandy. But the DEC also opened
up the idea of turning the park into a maintained green space with
manicured trails and other attractions. Howard Beach residents at the
time expressed concerns about safety. With that project due to begin
next year, it presents the perfect opportunity for residents to demand
more safety improvements – perhaps lighting or greater enforcement
– as part of the reconstruction efforts.
It is clear that Spring Creek Park is important to many Howard
Beach residents. Let’s make something good come out of this tragedy.
Instead of just making it a better protection against floods, let’s make
it a truly welcoming destination.
Now is the time to create a better, safer future for the park Karina
Verano loved so much.

I write in strong opposition to your
administration’s proposal to turn Maspeth’s Holiday Inn Express into a homeless shelter. It is a shortsighted, fiscally
irresponsible and completely inadequate
plan for the homeless and for the Maspeth community. Hotel rooms are by
no means suitable for anyone who has
fallen on hard times. It puts occupants
in an unstable environment, and is not
the right answer when addressing our
city’s homelessness crisis.
Hotels are dangerous, expensive, and
do not provide occupants with a real
kitchen or other home amenities. On
average, adult families have stayed in
these shelters for nearly two years – hotel
rooms are an improper home for days,
let alone two years.
Furthermore, both you, Mayor de
Blasio, and Department of Homeless
Services Commissioner Steven Banks
have gone on record saying that converting hotels to homeless shelters is the
wrong approach to housing families and
individuals. However, this proposal completely contradicts those sentiments.
Since you took office, three fiscal
budgets have provided
hundreds of millions
of dollars to increase
homeless services. This
has allowed an increase
in staffing levels and
direct grants to keep
families in their homes,
and also enhanced the
Shelter Repair Squad,
which can fix violations
at existing facilities.
With the additional
funding and services
for homeless prevention we have seen a five
percent decrease in the
daily population at New
York City shelters since
the December 2014
height.
Despite this decrease, homelessness
continues to be a seri-

ous issue in our city. City dollars should
go towards safe, clean conditions for the
homeless, and not toward converting
hotels into temporary housing.
Under your new Mandatory Inclusionary Housing (MIH) zoning requirements, a minimum of 25 percent of
the units constructed would be below
market-rate units. There is currently
no plan for more affordable housing in
Community Board 5 in Queens, nor in
my Council District. We need affordable
housing, not another shelter- hotel. In
recent months, two real estate developers who are eager to build residential
housing units in Maspeth and Woodside
have approached me, looking to start
a conversation about a zoning change
consistent with MIH.
Furthermore, there are already three
shelters within blocks of the proposed
Holiday Inn site, greatly impacting the
Maspeth community. The Administration’s efforts should be devoted to working with the developers, community
boards, and elected officials’ offices to
build affordable housing in Maspeth and
the surrounding area. This is the fiscally
and socially responsible method to help
those who lack the most basic of life’s
necessities – a place to call their home.

Gillibrand Touts Manufacturing In LIC
By Ariel HernAndez
Staff Writer
Earlier this week, state Sen. Kirsten
Gillibrand (D-NY) was in Long Island City to tour Boyce Technologies,
which focuses on manufacturing processes to engineer innovative, reliable
and accessible transit safety solutions.
There she announced her bipartisan Made in America Manufacturing
Communities Act legislation.
According to Gillibrand, the goal
of the legislation is to grow the manufacturing industry and help create job
opportunities in Queens by creating
this permanent program to designate
local regions as “manufacturing communities.” The communities are projected to put people in the frontline to
receiving federal economic development funding as a means of investing
in manufacturing.
“New York City has one of the
most diverse and talented workforces
in the entire country and that makes
us perfectly positioned for a manufacturing boom,” Gillibrand said during
her announcement. “This bipartisan
legislation would unlock millions of
dollars in federal economic development funds for smart investments in
high-impact projects, and leverage
public-private partnerships to help
create good-paying manufacturing
jobs in Queens, jumpstart new busi-
nesses and grow our economy for
years to come.”
The “manufacturing communities”
would have to create regional partnerships with key stakeholders such as
local and state economic development
officials, local governments, manufacturers, labor organizations and higher
education or other training providers,
in order to compete for up to $1.3 billion, the currently available federal
economic development funding for
manufacturing.
They would also have to demonstrate the significance of manufacturing and develop strategies to utilize
their “manufacturing communities”
designation in making investments
in workforce training and retraining, advanced research, infrastructure
and site development, supply-chain
support, promotion of exports and
foreign direct investment, and operational improvement and capital access
for manufacturers that support energy
or process efficiency, equipment or
facility upgrades, or the development
of business incubators, among other
activities.
“Long Island City is the customization capital of the world, where
manufacturing companies from design/build engineering to architectural lighting and glass to industrial
3D printers to specialty food and beverage, take advantage of our central
location and unparalleled transportation access to serve customers across
the region and the globe,” Elizabeth
Lusskin, president of the Long Island City Partnership, said in a press
release. “They also access the best
workforce in the world, from Ph.D.
engineers to production workers,
providing them family-supporting
jobs. And when you put some of the
smartest people in the world together
with some of the best workers in the
world, and give them support to produce, you get innovations that change
our world.”

Kew Gardens Post Office Will Stay
A longtime Kew Gardens post
office had its lease renewed last
Wednesday, alleviating concerns
in a community that hoped to keep
the post office alive, U.S. Rep. Grace
Meng (D-Queens) announced on
Thursday.
The Kew Gardens Post Office on
Austin Street has been a fixture in
the community since 1951. When its
lease expired on July 31st, locals were
concerned that the property would be
redeveloped, according to previously
published reports. However, Meng
asked the United States Postal Service
about the post office’s future back in
March, on behalf of concerned community members, and confirmed that
the lease would be renewed. The lease’s
signing last week made it offical.
“These residents said loud and
clear that they wanted this facility to
remain in their community, and I’m
pleased to deliver the good news,”
Meng said in a statement.
The new five-year lease will preserve the post office until at least July
31, 2021. At that time, the lease will
expire and the post office’s future will
be put in doubt again.
“We are grateful to Congresswoman Meng for her efforts in ensuring that the post office lease was
renewed for another five years,” said
president of the Kew Gardens Civic
Association Dominick Pistone in a
statement. “We would also like to
work with the congresswoman on a
long-term solution for our post office
to avoid another last-minute solution in 2021.”

FORECLOSURE RESCUE
SCAMS Be careful of people
who approach you with offers
to “save” your home. There
are individuals who watch for
notices of foreclosure actions
in order to unfairly profit from
a homeowner’s distress. You
should be extremely careful
about any such promises and
any suggestions that you pay
them a fee or sign over your
deed. State law requires
anyone offering such services
for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the
services they will perform and
fees they will charge, and
which prohibits them from
taking any money from you
until they have completed all
such promised services. Section 1303 NOTICE YOU ARE
IN DANGER OF LOSING
YOUR HOME If you do not
respond to this summons and
complaint by serving the
copy of the answer on the
attorney for the mortgage
company who filed this foreclosure proceeding against
you and filing the answer with
the court, a default judgment
may be entered and you may
lose your home. Speak to an

Residents Keep Fighting SBS Plan
By Matt Shortall
Local residents and members of the Woodhaven
Residents’ Block Association met in Queens this
past Saturday to protest plans for the expansion of
Selective Bus Service (SBS) routes. The Department
of Transportation is planning an overhaul of Woodhaven Boulevard that would remove two lanes of
traffic and multiple bus stops.
The DOT and MTA have been pushing for Select Bus Service, sometimes referred to as Bus Rapid
Transit (BRT), for the last several years. The agencies
claim this will provide faster bus service along the
entire boulevard, stretching from Rockaway all the
way to Woodside. The SBS proposal for Woodhaven
Boulevard would remove two lanes of traffic—one
in each direction—from use by any vehicles except
MTA buses. All other vehicle traffic on the boulevard would have to utilize fewer lanes.
In addition, the DOT and MTA have proposed
banning left turns from the boulevard onto cross
streets such as Jamaica Avenue and Liberty Avenue,
because those turns would interfere with the dedicated bus lanes. Moreover, at several busy intersections, bus riders would have to wait on medians in
the boulevard instead of on sidewalks.
Cameras and enforcement officers would enforce
the new bus lane rules, and violators would receive
tickets.
More than 50 people turned out on a hot and
humid late-summer day to have their voices heard.
They carried signs that read “Save Our Lanes,” and
“No SBS!” In between speakers the protesters chanted, “Trash this plan.”
Sherman Kane, a member of Community Board
9, has lived on Woodhaven Boulevard for the last
20 years. “It will negatively affect all of Woodhaven,
but especially Woodhaven Boulevard,” said Kane.
“It’s going to take away two lanes of traffic. We don’t
need that. Whether on the service road or the main
road, it’s going to increase traffic everywhere.
Marian Molina is another member of Queens
Community Board 9 who lives right on Woodhaven
Boulevard. “No one here is against public transportation,” she explained. “We’re against taking lanes
from the drivers in order to give them to the buses. If
you look around right now, it’s Saturday afternoon
and we have so much traffic.”
The Queens Public Transit Committee, an advocate group for improved public transportation in
the borough, has criticized the DOT’s SBS proposal
as sacrificing one mode of transportation in favor of
another. “The intersection at Woodhaven and Cross
Bay boulevards is one of the most congested thoroughfares in the entire city,” said Scala. “It doesn’t
take a genius to know that if you take a glass full
of water and start adding more water, it’s going to
overflow. South Queens is in danger of cardiac arrest because its main artery is congested.”
The DOT says it’s listening to residents’ concerns
and is open to making revisions on the SBS plan if
it feels such changes are warranted. “Woodhaven
Boulevard is an incredibly important street, but one
that is not serving all the residents of Queens as best
as it could,” said a spokesperson for the DOT.
In addition to carrying a high volume of traffic, the corridor carries over 30,000 bus passengers
daily. Moreover, it has Vision Zero priority status,
Mayor Bill De Blasio’s initiative to completely eliminate traffic fatalities by the year 2020, in an area that
has one of the highest fatality rates of any street in all
of New York City.
“We have made multiple changes to the original
plan after listening to the community and working with stakeholders to address their concerns,”
said the DOT spokesperson. “This extensive
community outreach process has yielded alterations asked for by residents such as not
banning left turns on Jamaica Avenue in
either direction, while still offering safety
enhancements along the corridor that will
benefit thousands of pedestrians, drivers and
bus riders who travel, shop and work on the
corridor every day.”
The DOT says it will closely monitor the
impacts of these changes, as it does for all
projects.

Maintain Muscle Mass During and After Menopause
By Joanne Barry Colon
Did you know that women lose
three to five percent of muscle after
age 30? The average woman gains
five to seven pounds during and after menopause and the weight goes
around the stomach instead of the
hips and thighs.
As a Certified Personal Trainer
specializing in Women’s health, I
encourage clients to implement the
following four tips to help maintain
lean muscle.
Warm-up: Aim for 10 minutes
instead of five minutes and choose
dynamic movements that mirror the
exercises you’re about to do, such
as swinging your arms forward, lateral, diagonal and arm circles or
jumping jacks, jogging around the
room and jumping rope to help the
blood to flow and raise your heart
rate.
eat to Fuel: Pay attention to
when you feel full to avoid over eating. Be sure to drink an eight ounce
glass of (warm or room temperature) water 30 minutes prior to a
meal to help with digestion. Choose
food rich in protein such as chicken,
fish, turkey, almonds, broccoli and
spinach. Eat frequently (every three
to four hours), small meals and be
mindful to eat your last meal three
hours prior to bed time.
Weight/Strength Training: I
encourage clients to properly learn
how to squat and lunge as these are
functional movements which keeps
the large muscles in the legs strong,
and will help people stay independent and live an active life longer.
To help keep your bones stronger
and maintain muscle mass I recommend the following weight-bearing
exercises:
• Short intervals of functional impact (Jacks, Jump Rope, High Knee
Jumps)
• Squats, Reverse Lunges, Standing Calf Raises
• Seated Over Head Press, Bent
Over Row, Chest Fly, Preacher
Curls, Straight Arm Press Down
•Resistance Band Chops, Planks
Pump Up Intensity: As your metabolism begins to slow down due
to muscle loss, it’s time to pump up
your intensity. Research indicates
women over 30 should be increasing
their intensity. After all the heavier
the load the more lean muscle mass
you will build.
PhoTo CoUrTeSy Joanne Barry Colon
Maintaining lean muscle mass is important for women going through
menopause and for women who have gone through menopause.
There is a direct correlation between your health and muscle mass,
the more lean muscle you build the
faster your metabolism moves, the
tighter and firmer you get, which
helps you reach your ideal weight
and maintain it, while decreasing
your risk of diabetes, heart disease,
cancer and decreases your risk of
falls and injury.
Please consult with your physician before starting this plan. For
best results work one on one with
a Certified Personal Trainer, Functional Fitness Specialist or Physical
Therapist. Email your questions to

New Tools For Communication On Bladder Control
Sixty is a milestone for Carolyn
Hampton and she’s not shy about
sharing her age because it’s a tribute
to how she’s lived. She’s more active
than ever; she loves to dance and
has even taken up tennis and running. None of this would have been
possible a few years back because
of her constant worry and concern
about having an accident. Hampton’s in charge now, but for years her
bladder ran the show.
Hampton is not. With 37 million
people in the United States suffering
from overactive bladder, the condition is more common than diabetes
or asthma. OAB is an ongoing condition that may include having to go
to the bathroom frequently, having to
use the bathroom urgently and leaking urine. While not life threatening,
OAB can negatively affect social activities, exercise and sleep.
After years of not getting full relief
with medications and suffering with
the side effects, Hampton was unable
to function because she woke every
45 minutes to use the bathroom. “My
quality of life was terrible, but I’m a
fighter and a two-time cancer survivor, so I wasn’t going to let my bladder limit me,” Hampton says. “I finally
said ‘Enough,’ and asked my primary
care doctor what else she had for me
and was sent to a urologist.”
“Your quality of life is so much
better when the bathroom doesn’t
have to be your number-one priority.
It’s so freeing. People shouldn’t be
afraid to talk about their symptoms or
ask for a referral if they aren’t finding relief. It’s critical to advocate for
yourself,” Hampton says.
OAB is thought to be caused by
miscommunication between the
bladder and brain. Hampton was ultimately prescribed an advanced therapy that worked for her by helping to
address this miscommunication.
Similar to the breakdown in communication between the brain and
bladder, there is often a communication gap between people dealing with OAB and physicians about its impact. Many
suffers
aren’t
comfortable
bringing it up and physicians
don’t often ask about bladder
health.
To bridge this gap, the National Association For Continence
(NAFC) launched a new tool to
help people get a clear idea of
their symptoms and the impact
so they can better communicate
these concerns to their doctor.
It also can help people find a
local incontinence expert who
can work to restore their bladder
function.
“There are many effective
OAB treatments, yet the majority
of those suffering are untreated.
Our goal is to help people discover the right option for them,
but the first step is communication,” says Steven Gregg, Ph.D.,
executive director of the NAFC.
“The better your health care provider understands the impact of your
symptoms, the better they can help
find an effective treatment.”
Only one in eight Americans who
have experienced loss of bladder
control has been diagnosed and
less than 33 percent of people with
incontinence and OAB symptoms
seek treatment. Many sufferers revolve their lives around their bladder, but often don’t realize how much
they are doing to cope: mapping
bathrooms, refraining from drinking,
wearing dark clothing and avoiding
socializing.
In a recent NAFC survey of 356
people experiencing bladder control
issues, 66 percent of respondents
said their urination issues affected
their sleep. More than 50 percent
also reported a loss of confidence.
The survey results also showed
bladder-control issues had a serious
impact on other important areas including travel, intimacy and ability to
be active.
Among women who have not discussed OAB with a physician, embarrassment was a top reason cited,
in addition to fear of being told it’s
a natural part of aging and thinking
nothing can be done.
While many advanced therapies
are available, less than five percent
of respondents have ever heard of
them. It’s critical that patients find an
incontinence expert to help find the
right solution for them.
“I’m thrilled that my doctor listened to me and helped me find an
effective solution. It took courage
to open up about what has been a
‘hush hush’ issue, but the freedom
it gave me means so much to me,”
says Hampton.

provider, and find an incontinence

Celebrating Korean-Americans In Queens
South Korea
Independence
Korean businesses
line Northern Boulevard and Prince
Street in Flushing.
August 15, 2016
Queens Tribune
150-50 14th Road
Whitestone, NY 11357
Dear Readers:
It is with great pleasure that I congratulate the Queens Tribune on the occasion of the 71st Independence Day of Korea.
The liberation of Korea 71 years ago was possible because
of the brave, untold sacrifices of countless Koreans and Americans. It remains a moment of enduring pride for Korean
Americans across the country, and a symbol of freedom and
independence for millions around the world. Today, South
Korea and the U.S. continue to remain steadfast allies, and the
persistence and resilience of the Korean American community
in working towards the American Dream is recognized and
celebrated by all. As the diversity and richness of our state’s many communities
continue to grow, holidays like the Liberation Day of Korea will only grow in
stature.
The Korean American community has also become a part of the essential
fabric of our nation. Its hardworking members, many of them immigrants or
first-generation citizens, have created numerous small businesses, countless
jobs, and incalculable benefits for the economy of New York. In particular, their
tremendous contributions to Queens and to the vitality of local neighborhoods
have had a positive, lasting impact on our community.
On behalf of the New York State Assembly, I would like to thank the board
of directors, staff members, and volunteers of the Queens Tribune for dedicating
this special issue to Korean Independence Day.
Sincerely,
Ron Kim
Member of Assembly
District 40, Queens
Dear Friends:
August 15th marks an auspicious day for Korea. This year
Korean people are celebrating the 71st anniversary of liberation. It is also the 68th anniversary of Korean government’s
founding.
Seventy-one years ago, the Korean people finally saw the
liberation of their country after years of struggle. The sacrifices and struggles of our forebears, of whom many paid the
ultimate price, laid the strong foundation for the Republic of
Korea to grow and become the great nation it is today.
In less than three quarters of a century, Korea has risen from the ravages
of colonialism and war to achieve what the world describes as the “Miracle on
the Han River.” The Korean War left the nation destitute, destroying whatever
industrial infrastructure we had.
The constant, unyielding efforts of our people led to the Korea we see today. We have risen from one of the poorest countries in the world to a nation
producing some of the world’s finest electronics, automobiles, steel, and ships,
standing alongside nations that had once given us aid.
We are the first former aid recipient to become a significant donor nation.
Our achievements and successes enable us to share and advise nations in the developing world, becoming a beacon of hope for these countries in their pursuit
of prosperity.
It is also important to note that Korea’s success as a mature democracy and
a prosperous market economy would not be possible without the strong alliance and partnership with the United States. Brave sacrifices of the Korean War
veterans are the bedrock of our alliance, which serves as a linchpin of peace and
stability in the Asia-Pacific.
Korea and the United States stand as global partners. Looking forward, we
will work to meet new opportunities and challenges of the 21st century based
on our common values and shared future of growth, innovation and prosperity.
Thank you.
Sincerely,
Gheewhan Kim
Consul General
Dear Readers:
I am writing to congratulate the Korean-American community as we celebrate the 71st Anniversary of the independence of South Korea.
Thank you to the Queens Tribune for creating this special edition in honor of the independence of South Korea,
which is one our country’s greatest allies. I also want to
express my gratitude to the Queens Tribune for highlighting the accomplishments of individuals and organizations
that have done so much to improve the quality of life of the
Korean-American community and all New Yorkers.
I wish all Korean-Americans a festive and joyous 71st Independence Day
Anniversary.
Yours truly,

who watch for notices of
foreclosure actions in order
to unfairly profit from a homeowner’s distress. You should
be extremely careful about
any such promises and any
suggestions that you pay
them a fee or sign over your
deed. State law requires
anyone offering such services
for profit to enter into a contract which fully describes the
services they will perform and
fees they will charge, and
which prohibits them from
taking any money from you
until they have completed all
such promised services. Section 1303 NOTICE YOU ARE

Korean Seniors Work For Seniors
BY JAMES FARRELL
Staff Writer
At around 3 p.m. on Monday, the
senior citizens at the Korean American Senior Center of Corona relaxed
with games of ping pong and Chinese
chess. At the same time, Jung Hwa
Ahn, Hye Rang Jean and Tae Bong
Lee were finishing up a day of work
in the center’s kitchen, cleaning and
preparing a last batch of meals for the
returning drivers of the center’s Meals
on Wheels program. Lunch was over,
and the three cooks had been working
since 6:30 a.m., cooking for the approximately 330 seniors who come by
the center every day.
It’s a lot of work for three cooks,
who are also accompanied by one
other staff member in the kitchen and
two volunteers who help distribute
the meals. But as overwhelming as the
workload can be, Jung, Hye and Tae
consider it a blessing to still be able to
tackle it. At 76, 73 and 73, respectively,
Jung, Hye and Tae could be guests at
the center themselves. Instead, they
have worked in the kitchen for almost
20 years, and plan to continue until
they physically can’t anymore.
“It benefits our lives,” Tae, who
handles all the cooking for the Meals
on Wheels Program, said through an
interpreter. “We become more active.
We can have a more healthful life than
other seniors.”
Additionally, the cooks agree that
continuing to work at the center allows them to continue contributing to
their society.
“We are not doing this for the
money,” said Hye through an interpreter. “We enjoy the work.”
Jung, the head cook, arrived in
America in 1976. She began working
part time at the center in ’98, and in
two months she became second in
charge, becoming the main cook last
South Korea
Independence
year in February. She said she learned
cooking from her mother, and initially
she was reluctant to learn, because she
wanted to pursue an education and
push against the stereotype that she
should become a housemaid. But as
she began to cook for her own family,
she realized she loved cooking for others, and channeled that into her work
at the center.
Hye and Tae came to America
in ’81 and ’87, respectively. Before
starting at the center, Tae was a Korean restaurant chef. Inspired by
the positive feelings that came when
other people enjoyed his food, he
continued his work at the center.
And Hye joined the center after a
few years of not working, deciding
that she would rather be active than
stay at home.
The Korean American Senior Center is an extension of Korean Community Services, an organization that
provides services targeting Korean
individuals in New York and northern New Jersey. In addition to senior
services, it provides services in fields
such as mental health, employment,
immigration and education. Korean
Community Services serves over 1,100
individuals a day across multiple sites
in Queens, Manhattan, Brooklyn and
northern New Jersey.
From left to right, Tae, Hye and Jung sit in the senior center.
Jung, explained through an interpreter that the three cooks plan out
the menu with a nutritionist and begin cooking food every weekday at
6:30 a.m. While there are four staff
members in the kitchen, the demand
of feeding 330 seniors every day is very
high, she said, and highlights a need
for a bigger staff despite a limited budget, and importantly, for more volunteers.
“We have to make Korean food
because it’s mostly Korean seniors,”
Jung said in translation, adding that
Korean food is very complicated and
requires a lot of work and preparation.
“We have to buy all the vegetables,
raw fish, meat and everything, and we
need to cook, starting from scratch.
The workload compared to number of
staff makes it really, really hard for us
to provide lunch to everyone.”
Additionally, the three cooks expressed frustration that their decision to continue working has made it
more difficult for them in some ways,
because they and their families cannot receive Social Security and other
benefits that are usually provided to
senior citizens if they are part of the
workforce, they said. This is frustrating, they said, because they feel it is
important for seniors to remain active members of society and the workforce. But the current system discourages that.
Despite some of these frustrations,
the three cooks say they love what they
do.
“We are appreciative of everything
that we have,” said Jung.
And the results are appreciated as
well. Joong Koo Kim, 66, was at the
center on Monday. “I really enjoy the
food. It’s the best food I can get,” he
said through an interpreter. “I can
only say that they are really great, what
they’re doing, making food for the seniors.”

A Bright Future for Shine Electronics
BY MATT SHORTALL
Founded by Korean-born Kyu
Park in 1974, Shine Electronics Co.,
Inc., in Long Island City is considered
one of the leaders in reverse logistics
for wireless and cell phone products.
Throughout much of the company’s
history, Shine has worked primarily
on servicing and repairing electronic
equipment for multinational companies like LG Corporation, Motorola,
Samsung and Sprint.
In 2014, Shine management made
a strategic decision to alter the direction of their company. Today,
Shine purchases thousands of mobile
phones each week and distributes
them exclusively in international
markets where there is a high demand
for mobile devices.
Shine Electronics and CEO Elliot Park, Kyu’s son, have been honored more than once with business
awards. In 2015, the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA)
bestowed Shine with the Minority
Export Firm of the Year award. “The
organization [MBDA] has assisted
Shine Electronics in introducing us
to different countries for the export
of our products.”
That same year, Elliot Park received
the Outstanding Asian Americans
in Business Award from the Asian
American Business Development
Center (AABDC).
“It makes me proud to be a minority entrepreneur,” said Park. “As
a second-generation entrepreneur,
I witnessed firsthand the effort and
dedication my parents exerted into
running a business while facing disadvantages by both language and cultural barriers. As a result, I thoroughly
enjoy working with other minorityowned businesses, and helping each
other build companies that will succeed and cultivate the next generation
of minority business owners.” Park
credits most of his success to his father, his boss and mentor who guided
him for over 15 years before he took
over as CEO himself.
In 2015, Shine Electronics was
among the members of a large U.S.
commercial delegation that visited
the Philippines for the Asia Pacific
Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO
Summit. The delegation brought to-
gether many small to medium-size
enterprises that are export-ready or
currently exporting to APEC economies, as well as trade organizations
with export-ready members and other
federal government officials.
Today Park continues to lead a
multifaceted company that combines
extensive industry experience with a
sense of moral responsibility. Shine’s
mission statement demonstrates adherence to the same principles of recycling, reusing and conserving resources no matter the country in which it is
doing business.
When asked what advice he
would give to young entrepreneurs,
Park said, “Be patient, consistent,
communicative, honest and never
give up!”

Queens’ Indian Community

A shot of Indian-owned businesses
along Hillside Avenue in Bellerose.
BY JAMES FARRELL
Photo by James Farrell
For Queens’ Indian Americans,
both past and present, the American
Dream is alive and well.
That’s what Gurpal Singh, cofounder of SEVA, a South Asian advocacy group from Richmond Hill,
said about the Indian American community in Queens, of which he is a
part. He cited the booming number
of Indian small-business communities
anchored in neighborhoods like his
own Richmond Hill, the opportunities
presented by a diverse community
like Queens, and the emphasis on
hard work in Indian culture.
“There’s something in the Indian
culture that praises independence,”
he said.
He explained that being a cab
driver in India’s Punjab may not be
a lucrative path to stability, but that’s
not the case in Queens.
“Being a cab driver in Queens is
a path to get out of poverty,” he said.
“It’s way more lucrative to be a hard
worker.”
Local leaders agree that this hardworking mindset has helped Indian
immigrants become productive, important members of the Queens community at large, ever since Indians
first began arriving in the 1960s. Today, you’ll find vibrant Indian communities built around core Indian-owned
businesses in Richmond Hill, Jackson
Heights, Bellerose and Floral Park,
with their presence spread all over
the borough.
The first wave of Indian immigrants that came to Queens consisted of educated young professionals - doctors, engineers, scientists.
This early group included people like
Uma Mysorekara, an obstetrician/
gynecologist who came to America
in 1969 to further her medical training. Mysorekara is also the president
of the Hindu Temple Society, whose
temple on Bowne Street in Flushing
was the first traditional Hindu temple
in the country, being consecrated in
1977.
“We did encounter some difficulties
because we were
the new kids on the
block,” Mysorekara
said of her experience in opening the
temple. She added
that they began
to host a series of
events, including a
parade for the festival for the Hindi deity Ganesh, in which
they invited the entire community to
learn more about

said. “I think it immediately had a
draw to many Indian immigrants that
were coming here.”
“Neighborhoods like Jackson
Heights, for example, are household
names in India,” he added.
Jackson Heights, with Indian
businesses like the famous Jackson
Diner, which serves renowned Indian
cuisine, is one of many centers of Indian culture in Queens. Shiv Dass, a
member of Jackson Heights’ Community Board 3 for 15 years, came to
America in 1966 and remembers how
in the 70s, 74th Street consisted of all
American-owned stores. By the 80s,
he said, 90 percent were owned by
Indians.
“The street is very beautiful street.
Very quiet,” he said. “As you know,
Indians are very hardworking and
honest, and very peaceful people.”
The same is true for Bellerose,
which is flush with Indian businesses,
like restaurants and grocery stores,
as well as medical practices, along
Hillside Avenue.

Leading Toward A Healthier New York
BY ARIEL HERNANDEZ
Dr. Ramanathan Raju is president
and CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals,
the nation’s largest publicly owned,
integrated health care delivery system. This physician and physician
executive is not just committed to
the health and well-being of others,
but to maintaining his Indian culture
in his American life.
“It fills my heart with pride when
I consider what people of Indian origin have contributed to the economic and social growth of the United
States over the past three generations,” Raju told the Queens Tribune.
“One aspect of Indian culture that I
believe we contribute to the American experience is our commitment to
volunteerism and altruism. I learned
many lessons from my father, who
was an economist and a campaigner
for Indian independence. He was
committed to extending a helping
hand to people in trouble, and to doing whatever possible to uplift people
who had fallen through the cracks of
the social system. He earned the
disapproval of many colleagues by
inviting members of the untouchable
caste to dine with us at our home.”
Raju is originally from Chennai,
which is located in the state of Tamil
Nadu in Southern India. He received
his master’s degree in Surgery from
Madras Medical College and then
went to England, where he spent
three and a half years earning a fel-
Dr. Ram Raju
lowship from the Royal College of
Surgery.
“I appreciated the lessons I
learned in the United Kingdom, especially its championing of the National Health Service – where they
take care of everybody – so part of
the roots of what I do here in New
York, leading a safety net system
committed to caring for all New Yorkers, really originated in England,”
said Raju. “Nevertheless, after my
studies in the UK concluded, I was
excited by the opportunity to relocate
to America.”
Raju’s first stop in the United
States was Brooklyn, where he entered a medical residency program
as a surgical fellow at Lutheran Medical Center. Not long after, Raju became a chief resident, and then a fellow in vascular surgery, making his
way up to becoming a trauma surgeon, and then director of General
Surgery and head of Trauma, which
led him to opening a private practice
in Brooklyn.
Although Raju spent over 20
years practicing vascular and trauma
surgery, he chose to leave the practice to start a new career as a physician CEO.
“Nearly 20 years ago I read an Institute of Medicine report called ‘Unequal Treatment: Confronting Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Health
Care,’” said Raju. “It showed that racial and ethnic minorities here in the
USA are less likely to receive even
routine medical procedures and experience a lower quality of health
services. The study opened my eyes
to the lack of equity in health care
that simply shouldn’t exist in the
world’s richest and most powerful
nation. I felt that I could help more
people, even whole communities if
I worked as a health care executive
to improve culturally responsive care
and to build far greater access to
our delivery system. So I dedicated
myself to that work, and remain dedicated to it today.”
Raju had not begun to spend time
in Queens until later in his career
when he became chief medical officer for the city’s public hospital system.
“It was during this period that I
came to more fully appreciate the
tremendous diversity of your bor-
@70
ough, which has been called one of
the most diverse places on Earth,”
said Raju. “At NYC Health + Hospitals we often say that ‘we look like
our patients and they look like us.’
The underpinning of our incredibly
strong connection to the communities we serve is the diversity of our
workforce. And so we particularly
appreciate Queens. And we are
proud to serve it with two acute-care
hospitals, NYC Health + Hospitals/
Queens and NYC Health + Hospitals/Elmhurst.”
In 2014, Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed Raju to lead the 42,000 employees of the NYC health care system who provide essential services
to 1.4 million New Yorkers every
year across the city’s five boroughs.
“We have only two types of employees at NYC Health + Hospitals: deeply committed caregivers,
people like our doctors and nurses
and clinicians who actually touch
our patients; and everybody else,
everyone from our environmental
staff to our food services staff to our
dedicated hospital police, to myself
and the rest of our leadership team,
all of whom are committed to supporting those who provide direct
care,” said Raju.

Diner Grows Into Jackson Heights Icon
BY MATT SHORTALL
The Jackson Diner has been a
landmark in the Jackson Heights
community of Queens for decades.
Attracting a diverse demographic of
customers since 1983, the diner has
earned such a good reputation that
the owners opened another restaurant in Floral Park.
Jackson Diner takes visitors’ taste
buds on a 7,600-mile journey from
the lush farmlands of Northern India
to the waterfront regions of the South.
The inventive and robust menu offers
a rich array of diverse and aromatic
dishes that artfully blend unique flavors with fresh ingredients.
Current owner Manjit Singh first
started working at the Jackson Diner
when his father bought the building
back in the early 1980s and transformed it from a standard American
diner to one specializing in Indian cuisine.
“In ’83 there were only three or four
Indian stores on this block,” Singh
said. “Now the whole block is pretty
much Indian stores.” Singh says the
most popular dish on the menu at the
Jackson Diner is the chicken tikka
masala. “It’s a recipe from North India
made from fresh tomatoes, onions,
and finished with a little bit of cream,”
he said. But not all of the food the
diner has to offer is Indian. The menu
is a blend of flavors, including a small
selection of traditional American diner
foods, such as the chili chicken. The
menu includes many “fusion types of
food,” according to Singh.
The diner has not only become a
source of pride for the Singh family,
but also for local residents in Jackson
Heights. “There are a lot of Indian
restaurants in the neighborhood, but
the Jackson Diner is in a league of its
own,” said Maria Lewis, who works
nearby at Elmhurst Hospital. “The samosas are the best in town, but the
Kashmiri kabab is definitely my favorite.”
The quality and environment of
the Jackson Diner is well known out-
side of the neighborhood,
though. Former New York
Mayor Michael Bloomberg,
Bill and Hillary Clinton,
Harrison Ford, Sylvester
Stallone and Shatrughan
Sinha are just a few of the
prominent figures who include the Jackson Diner
among their favorite places
in New York to grab a bite.

Sakhi Provides For South Asian Women
BY JON CRONIN
Sakhi For South Asian Women
began 27 years ago to help end the
silent suffering of immigrant South
Asian women who did not feel that
they could function alone in their new
country.
Sakhi, which is a Hindi word
meaning “woman friend,” was founded in 1989 by five women from different fields Anannya Bhattacharjee,
Mallika Dutt, Tula Goenka, Geetanjali Misra and Romita Shetty to create a safe place for women to learn
their rights and educate themselves
so they may also find economic freedom.
Shalini Somayaji, executive director of Sakhi, said that they mainly
deal with immigrants from India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. She added
that about 45 percent of their clients
live in Queens, with the rest mainly
coming from the Bronx, Brooklyn
and Staten Island.
Somayaji said that in a culture
that is mainly a patriarchal system,
it is unfortunately viewed as “breaking families apart,” and is often faced
with people who advised relatives
who witnessed or have faced domestic violence “Don’t speak out. This is
a family issue.”
She added that Sakhi is about
“addressing gender equity and gender justice.” She said that although
patriarchy is an issue they face, “We
don’t want to give
in to broad stereotypes, but we run
into that.”
Another valuable
seminar that Sakhi
provides is training
the bystander of domestic abuse, a program that helps people help others. In this program, held
in community centers and sometimes
local Gurdwaras, a friend may not
speak out directly, but instead grab
literature on the way out.
She added that another priority
it has this year is to work more in
schools and college campuses with
the South Asian Youth Action. Somayaji said in the next year or two,
she sees Sakhi extending its aid not
only to immigrants, but first-generation South Asian women in need of
aid.
Somayaji said that the nonprofit
publicizes its hotline, but not its
address. Once a potential client
contacts them, they give out the
address and the client comes in. The
program does not
shelter
women,
but does work with
shelters, like Sanctuary For Families,
throughout the city.
The
organization
also helps with legal information on
immigration, child
custody, and child support and family law.
Many of their clients only socialize with people within their immigrant communities and have either
not yet learned English or do not
speak it fluently. Sakhi’s programs
provide language skills, resume
building, networking and financial
literacy skills. The programs help
these newcomers and survivors of
@70
abuse get ready to enter the workforce. Somayaji has staff developing relationships with large retailers
and hotels, like the Hilton and Pret
coffee shops to set up interviews for
clients.
It also has a small scholarship
fund that helps their clients pay for
schooling as home health aides or
nurse practitioners.
Somayaji noted that some, but not
many, who come to them have even
held high administrative positions in
their native lands, but wants everyone to know that thee organizations
accommodate all age ranges.
Sakhi often coordinates with the
South Asians For Empowerment in
Richmond Hill, a nonprofit that aids
low income immigrant families and
helps them integrate financially and
culturally into their community. Sakhi
currently has office hours there every
other Wednesday.

Born in Kenya to African and Indian parents, Ravi Patel is a third
generation Kenyan-Indian. Due the
tumultuous times in Kenya during the
70s and 80s, his parents decided that
it would be safer to send Patel and
his brother to Gujarat, India, with their
grandmother. While in India, the boys
attended boarding school for five
years as their parents worked night
and day saving up for the boys to join
them in New York.
“My story resembles many immigrants story,” he said. “My parents
came here with absolutely nothing
but their family support. They worked
night and day and got an apartment
in Woodside, where my story would
start. I came to the U.S. in the summer of 1992 and lived in a one-bedroom apartment with sometimes 10 to
12 family members, all of whom were
in the same situation as my mom and
dad, trying to settle and make something of themselves.”
Patel called his 20 years spent in
Woodside “very influential and memorable,” shaping him into the man he
is today. During those years, he attended PS 11, IS 125 and the prestigious Stuyvesant High School.
By his college years, he decided
that what he wanted to do for the rest
of his life was help others. He attend-
two kids, 5-year-old Airya and newly

The family resides in Bellerose. Patel
says that his wife is a physical therapist who has started her own practice

“She loves helping individuals in
our community strive to be their best,”
Patel said.

Queens Radiologist’s Journey to Patient Advocacy
BY MATT SHORTALL
After her own battle with breast
cancer, one radiologist has used her
own experiences to become a leader
in the fight to improve patient care.
Dr. Sabiha Raoof, M.D., became the
chair of Radiology at Jamaica and Flushing hospitals when she was just 34
years old.
Her initial staff of five
radiologists has grown into
a group of more than 20
board-certified and subspecialty trained radiologists.
Dr. Raoof grew up in
Kashmir, India, where she received
her medical degree from Government
Medical College of Jammu and Kashmir. In 1989 she came to the United
States where she has been practicing
medicine for more than 20 years.
“I really come from a family of physicians,” she said. Her father was one
of the most prominent physicians in
Kashmir State. Her sister, a familymedicine physician, is married to an
ophthalmologist. Her brother is an
interventional cardiologist and her
husband, Suhail Raoof, is the chief
of Pulmonary Medicine at Lenox Hill
Hospital.
Raoof completed her radiology
training in 1997 and joined the staff
of Jamaica Hospital Medical Center.
During that time, Raoof has seen major technological advances
that have produced faster
and safer CT scans, more
powerful MRIs, and better
X-ray and ultrasound machines.
Raoof says she came
to Jamaica Hospital at a
time when the market for
radiology was very tight.
She had plans to move
back to Long Island at some point,
but fell in love with the neighborhood
she worked in. “I realized how much
cultural diversity exists here,” she
said. “Every day brings new challenges. Working at Jamaica Hospital has
been a pleasure and a privilege.”
Around 2012, Raoof was told she
had breast cancer. It was a diagnosis that would change the direction of
her life. “I see so many patients with
cancers, but when it is your own film
you’re seeing, it is a whole different
experience,” she explained in an interview with the American College
of Radiology. “At that moment, I felt
everything had been taken away from
me in one split second.”
Nothing could have prepared her
for the experience of being a patient.
“Some of the doctors were excellent
in what they did, but had little interaction with the patient, and that made
me wonder what we were doing
wrong in our department.”
@70
Today, Jamaica Hospital is one
of the busiest emergency medicine
departments and Level 1 trauma centers in the country. “Our busy outpatient clinics serve a very needy patient
population here in Queens. Being a
breast cancer survivor has also made
me a patient advocate. My passion is
to improve care for our patients.”

Queens’ Indian Community
(continued from page 20)

Avenue in
Richmond Hill.

– Bellerose Indian Merchants Association came to America in 1981. “You
will see hundreds of outlets,” he said
of Hillside Avenue. He also added
that Indian immigrants have histories
of working two or three jobs and paying taxes that contribute to their community. “It definitely helped the county
to a great extent,” he said.
Richmond Hill is also home to another center of Indian life along Liberty Avenue. The street has a slew
of Indian-owned businesses, and the
neighborhood is also home to the
largest Sikh temple in the Northeast,
which serves over 9,000 Sikhs. Assemblyman David Weprin (D-Fresh
Meadows), whose district includes
another center of Indian business and
life along Liberty Avenue in Richmond
Hill, commended the effect that Indian
Americans have had in Queens.
“I think it’s been a positive effect,”
he said. “It’s a hardworking community, a large small-business community, a lot of grocery stores and restaurants.”
It’s in the expansion of these smallbusinesses that Indians’ contributions to Queens are most visible, and
where Indians have the most interactions with the community at large.
“There’s a lot of overall interaction
between the Indian business people
and the general business community
of Queens,” said Singh, of SEVA.
“The amount of money that flows
through the community is amazing.”
Still, there are significant issues
that face the Indian community today,
including language barriers, discrimination related to anti-Muslim sentiment in a post-9/11 world – though
most Indian-Americans in Queens
are not Muslim, but Hindi, Sikh or
Christian.
Weprin said that he saw this prob-
@70
lem in his district frequently, particularly in the large Sikh population. “I
can’t tell you how many Sikhs have
been attacked,” said Weprin, adding
that this spurs heavy involvement in
the Sikh community, who hope to be
more recognized members of their
community. “The more people get to
know their neighbor, the more they
realize that they’re very similar to
them,” Weprin said.
Another big problem has been a
lack of political involvement, particularly through voter turnout. Through
SEVA, which is no longer as active
as it once was, Singh had experience
with this last issue and helped to register thousands of Indian American
voters. He says that with so many Indian Americans doing well, few are inspired to fight for significant change.
“The political apathy is largely
because people are doing good,” he
said. “People are happy, successful.”
Despite the lack of political involvement, the South Asian commu-
nity is proud of its solidarity. Krishan,
from the Friends of Diversity Plaza,
recalled a vigil in Diversity Plaza after the attacks on a gay nightclub in
Orlando in June by a terrorist motivated by Islamic radicalism. The group
was angered both by the
attacks and the harsh response against Muslims some of whom are Indian.
Members from the LGBT
community and the South
Asian community came out
to disavow hate of all kind whether against the LGBT
community or against people of different faiths.
Krishan explained that
it was important that Indian Americans in Queens
become more politically involved. However, it was at
that vigil at Diversity Plaza
that the influences of Indian
culture were most strongly
felt.
“India is a really diverse
country with many different religions, ethnicities
and backgrounds,” he said.
“We have shown that there is a unity
in that diversity.”

A Voice for Law and Justice
BY TRONE DOWD
Judge Ushir Pandit-Durant has
made tremendous strides for the Indian American community. Not only
has she climbed to the top of her profession of choice, but she
is trying her best to make
sure the baton of success
is passed to the next generation.
Born in Gujarat, India
- birthplace of Mahatma
Gandhi - Pandit-Durant
came to Flushing at the
young age of 10 in 1972.
She came with her parents, who were seeking
opportunity and a chance
at a better life for the family. Her father came to New York in 1971, saving up and preparing the family for the
big move.
“It was not easy adjusting at first,”
she said. “We came in December so
it was very cold. I didn’t speak the
language that well and I missed my
friends and family. I wanted so badly
to go back to India.”
As time went on, Pandit-Durant
became adjusted as she began to
make friends. She said that within six
months to a year, things began to fall
into place, especially at school. She
is the product of the New York City
public school system, attending PS
20, MS 189 and John Bowne High
School. She was an all-around student growing up, but was
drawn to certain subjects
over others.
“I was pretty good in
math, okay in science,”
Pandit-Durant
remembered. “When I was growing up, all of my friends
chose careers in medicine or pharmacy, the
traditional careers that a
lot of the Indians or South
Asians chose. I was more
interested in speaking and the English language.”
She attended St. John’s University, majoring in Government and
Politics and minoring in Psychology.
From there, she attended the New
York Law School, graduating from
the institution in 1987. Pandit-Durant
cited the often exciting portrayal of
courtroom drama depicted in television and movies sparked her interest
in the field.
After graduating, Pandit-Durant
began working for the Queens County
District Attorney’s Office. She worked
there a total of 25 years, serving as
the Senior Assistant District Attorney
under DA Richard Brown.
In 2015, Pandit-Durant broke another glass ceiling when she was
elected as a Civil Court Judge. She
is the first South Asian person to
earn that honor. But she said that
she doesn’t want it to stop with her.
She also started the South Asian Bar
Association of New York in hopes of
uniting others like her in the field of
law.
“In law school I was the only South
Asian or Indian lawyer in my class,”
@70
she said. “I was certainly the first ADA
in Queens County because not many
of us choose law over becoming a
doctor. It was strange to not have too
many people like me.”
The group is open to all nationalities, but promotes issues that may be
of interest to the Indian community,
and helps and supports South Asian
lawyers advance their careers. The
group is 300 members strong and
growing.

LAW REQUIRES THAT WE
SEND YOU THIS NOTICE
ABOUT THE FORECLOSURE PROCESS, PLEASE
READ IT CAREFULLY. SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT
YOU ARE IN DANGER OF
LOSING YOUR HOME. IF
YOU FAIL TO RESPOND
TO THE SUMMONS AND
COMPLAINT IN THIS FORECLOSURE ACTION, YOU
MAY LOSE YOUR HOME.
PLEASE READ THE SUMMONS AND COMPLAINT
CAREFULLY. YOU SHOULD
IMMEDIATELY CONTACT
AN ATTORNEY OR YOUR
LOCAL LEGAL AID OFFICE
TO OBTAIN ADVICE ON
HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF. SOURCES OF INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE
The State encourages you
to become informed about
your options in foreclosure,
in addition to seeking assistance from an attorney
or legal aid office, there are
government agencies and
non-profit organizations
that you may contact for
information about possible
options, including trying to
work with your lender during this process. To locate
an entity near you, you may
call the toll-free helpline
maintained by the New
York State Department of
Financial Services at 1-800342-3746 or visit the Department’s website at www.
dfs.ny.gov FORECLOSURE
RESCUE SCAMS Be careful
of people who approach you
with offers to “save” your
home. There are individuals who watch for notice of
foreclosure actions in order
to unfairly profit from a
homeowner’s distress. You
should be extremely careful
about any such promises
and any suggestions that
you pay them a fee or sign
over your deed. State law
requires anyone offering
such services for profit to
enter into a contract which
fully describes the services
they will perform and fees
they will charge, and which
prohibits them from taking
any money from you until
they have completed all
such promised services.

LaGuardia Basks In Champ Title
By DaviD Russell
LaGuardia Community College
can go around recruiting as the defending CUNY champions for the
first time. For head coach Ben Chobhaphand, the title helps bring in high
school players in addition to several
student-athletes whom the coach is
expecting to get in the building.
“I think it helps but we had a lot of
players sit out, and now they’re coming back,” Chobhaphand said. Ryan
Yearwood was a huge factor in the Red
Hawks CUNY title, but his two years
at this level are up. It’s the nature of
the beast at the two-year level. “At the
JUCO level there is so much turnover.
It’s different than the high school or
four-year college level,” said Chobhaphand, who played for Queensborough CC in the early 2000s.
Although it’s tough to know how
the roster will actually look until the
semester begins, the coach likes the
mix of player experience that he could
have. “We have some veterans, new
guys, transfers, a little bit of everything,” Chobhaphand said.
Last season was the third for the
Red Hawks, as they went from playoff disappointment in their initial two
years to champions. After they beat
Borough of Manhattan Community
College for the CUNY title, LaGuardia lost to Nassau in the Region XV
semifinals, two wins shy of going to
nationals. The team couldn’t duplicate
what Hostos CC did in 2003, winning
a national title in its third year of existence.
While repeating as CUNY champions would be fine, Chobhaphand has
his sights set higher. “It is nice but it’s
not our main goal,”
Chobhaphand said. “We want to
contend for a national title but it’s a
step in the right direction.”

West Side Tennis Club Has Successful Gala
By Jon CRonin
Editor
Last Saturday the West Side Tennis
Club Foundation in Forest Hills raised
$18,000 for scholarships to winter
classes for children.
Each scholarship awarded is
$1,500 and will allow a needy child in
the community to take lessons at the
West Side Tennis Club from October
through April. The winter program
usually includes about 150 kids, 12 of
whom last year received scholarships.
“The gala went very well for a firsttime effort,” said Bob Ingersole, tennis
director for the club. “If we get more
money, then we award more scholarships,” he added.
Ingersole noted, “Whatever money we raise, all of it goes back to these
grants.”
The foundation, which supports
needy neighborhood kids, stroke victims and tennis enthusiasts in wheelchairs, is the brain child of Ingersole,
who started it with one of the club’s
board members in 2003. “It’s been
chugging along since.”
“This year our President Roland
Meier really pushed [the fundraising],”
said Ingersole
According to a statement from
the club, “the mission [of the foundation] includes empowering children
to learn life skills through tennis and
has a goal of introducing children to
tennis and helping needy children advance through the skills development
that tennis offers.”
Ingersole said they tell groups,
many local, what they have available in
scholarships and lets the groups pick.
Some of those participating group are:
Power-Play, who aids in empowering
young women through sports, New
York Junior Tennis League, Forest
Hills Community House and Forestdale Orphanage.
Ingersole said, “They’re not necessarily good players, but we’re looking to make a difference in these kids’
lives.”
The program boasts the kids will
learn self-esteem, time- and stressmanagement, as well as, “putting success and failure in proportion and developing socially acceptable behavior.”
Ingersole said the foundation runs
year round but they focus mainly on
their winter session, because kids are
taking advantage of the many other
opportunities they have during the
summer.
Although all of the club’s courts
are outdoors, Ingersole said they have
10 courts that they cover during the
winter.
Part of the foundation’s function
is to teach tennis to children in wheelchairs once a week. Last Wednesday the
club ran an exhibition with eight elite
athletes from the wheelchair community teaching tennis to those children.

“It was very inspiring,” said
Ingersole. “We got tons of
donations that day.”
