It’s only been a week since the Food Pantry was started by LIC Relief, but the demand from those in need has been huge and given the trajectory it won’t be slowing down anytime soon. If you haven’t been able to help in one way or another, please consider doing so now; and if you have helped already, please consider doing so again.
//Long Form Read Recommendation for LIC: sports journalist and former LIC resident Kevin Armstrong wrote the cover story in this week’s Sports Illustrated all about the single punch thrown by an assistant college basketball coach that killed a man in Queens Plaza in 2018.
Yes, the incident and the trial and outcome have been reported on previously, but this one delves into the details of what happened, the biographies of the two men, and the aftermath and ramifications. I highly recommend you read this well-written tragedy that took place late one summer night in LIC.
