Our charming beginnings! Forest Hills was named in 1906 by Cord Meyer Development Company, and this was their architecturally distinctive real estate office on Queens Boulevard & Continental Avenue on the east side. Newcomers were welcomed with much warmth, beginning with the grandeur of the facade, which emphasized commitment and was an expression of confidence.: @michaelhperlman 0

Last year’s cardboard cutouts at Citi Field were replaced by living and breathing fans last week. It’s been over 500 days since fans were allowed to watch a baseball game in Flushing in person, and while attendance was capped at 20 percent, the lucky people who were able to snag a ticket were happy to be back in the ball park on April 8 for the Mets home opener against the Miami Marlins. Tailgaters were socially distanced and enjoying the beautiful weather. Lifelong friends Felix Ramos and Zach Kiesecker from Suffolk County were at the first game of the season. “We’ve been away for so long, we had this pandemic go on and now that baseball is back we have people tailgating here and it feels normal to a degree,” said Ramos. “It just feels amazing.” To be able to attend, fans had to provide proof of either a full vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test. Face masks were required unless guests were eating or drinking, and paper tickets were not accepted.All concession purchases will be cashless for the foreseeable future, and Citi Field workers will sanitize the stadium after every game. 0

Elmhurst History & Cemeteries Preservation Society (EHCPS), Inside Elmhurst, Historic Districts Council, and local residents held a candlelight vigil in front of the Walentyna Janta House in honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day.The event outside the home at 88-28 43rd Avenue attracted over 30 attendees on what is also the anniversary of the Warsaw uprising, a major WWII operation in 1944.Guest speakers included Rabbi Eli Blokh of Chabad of Forest Hills North, event organizer Alfonso Quiroz of Inside Elmhurst, and Leon Sherman, a 102-year-old Queens resident who survived five concentration camps, including Auschwitz.Rabbi Blokh called Sherman “a living testament to the fact that resistance is not only with guns, but is with the spirit and the soul and with love and hope.” “Leon is a survivor and a fighter in all those senses, and his faith keeps him alive,” he said. “People like Leon and Mrs. Janta show by example that heroes are those who make the right choices, even when everyone else around them is making the wrong choices.” Sherman showed the “B2593” mark that was imprinted on his arm by the Nazis. “They told us you have a number, no name,” he said. “Whenever they call this number, you have to answer. They told us the only way out is through the chimney. I saw the chimney burning day and night.” 0
