Police released images Thursday of a suspect wanted for robbing two men at gunpoint outside a luxury apartment building on Center Boulevard in June.

The robbery took place on June 22 at around 1 p.m. when a gun-toting man approached the victims — aged 25 and 33 — outside 45-45 Center Blvd., a TF Cornerstone building located on the Long Island City waterfront.

The suspect demanded the victims’ property and then took cellphones, cash, and wallets, police said. The perpetrator then fled the scene on foot toward Anable Basin, police said.

The 33-year-old suffered a scratch on his left shoulder while the 25-year-old was unharmed, police said.

Police released two photos of the man wanted for questioning. He was last seen wearing a green-colored top, fawn pants, a baseball cap and a backpack.

The 108th Precinct tweeted that the suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.

Eastern Queens Greenway project connecting local parks gets $6 million in City Council funding

The Eastern Queens Greenway plan is a step closer to fruition after Council Member Sandra Ung joined Speaker Adrienne Adams in Kissena Park on Oct. 2, where they announced $6 million in funding to complete two sections of the greenway that will create a seamless connection between Flushing Meadows Corona Park and Alley Pond Park.

“We are fortunate in Eastern Queens to have a number of amazing parks, but in many places they are physically close but disconnected from one another,” Ung said. “This funding will create new connections and improve existing ones to create a continuous and safe path from Flushing Meadows to Alley Pond and beyond. These projects will increase access points to our open spaces, which in turn will make them safer for seniors, families, and those with mobility impairments.”
