Not much of a story. Just another typical weekend event in Elmont.

You should be ashamed of yourselves. You don't even know what you are talking about. Elmont is a good, strong, vibrant community. To tell you the truth, I'm glad none of you live here anymore. Racism is a disease and we don't need racists here.

This was not a "typical" Elmont weekend. You have good and bad in any area -- however, the people involved in the SUV drive-by were NOT from Elmont. The BBQ party they are referring to was a graduation party held in a young lady's backyard to celebrate her going off to college. The kids that attended this party were pre-dominantly high school seniors and college students. Because some a**holes decide to shoot out of an SUV for sport is not a reflection on the kids that were at this party.

One more thing -- the kids at this party were culturally mixed as well. Irish, Italian, Hispanic, African American and one person was German. Your racist comments says more about you and your ignorance than anything else. Thank goodness these kids don't think like you.

And one more thing to the person from the Andrews Air Force - ya need to watch what you say because the day you go to war it just may be an African American who saves your life. Jerk!

or more likely that he might walk down the street and get stabbed, shot or robbed by that same person. FBI/US Justice Department says those odds are 17 times more likely than a white guy.

Wait until the new street lights and brick crosswalks get laid, then crime will disappear (along with the light bulbs and bricks, I'm sure)!

Not the Elmont I knew in the 70's. Took over the parents old place on the Franklin Sq/Elmont line and walking around the old 'hood I noticed a vast decline. My street is much more crowded with cars from all the accessory apartments. I'm sad to see what is nothing more than a general and sad decline in the area.

Drive by's at parties, stabbing in the library, schools performing poorly. It all makes me rethink home improvement plans and raises the question should I get now before the tide rises past Avril Park.

There have been many changes since the 70's and nothing's been for the better.
