Two Men Stabbed on 7 Train in Woodside Sunday: NYPD

(52nd Street station)

July 6, 2020 By Michael Dorgan

Two men were stabbed– including a 73-year old– while on the 7 train in Woodside Sunday morning.

The victims were sitting on a Manhattan-bound train– between 61st Street and 52nd Street– at around 7:25 a.m. when a man pulled out a pocket knife and started shouting at the first victim.

“Why aren’t you home with your wife and kids?” shouted the man, who was later arrested and identified as Patrick Chambers.

Chambers, 46, from the Bronx, then stabbed the victim in the stomach and the chest in what police say was an unprovoked attack.

A 73-year-old man tried to intervene and stop the attack but Chambers stabbed him on the left wrist and upper chest, police said.

Chambers was arrested by police after the train pulled into the 52nd St. station. He has been charged with assault, menacing and criminal possession of a weapon.

The two victims were transferred by EMS to Elmhurst Hospital with non-life-threatening wounds, according to police.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on public parkland.

Rockaway Beach opens swimming season after NYC strikes surprise lifeguard deal

Rockaway Beach welcomed back tens of thousands of New Yorkers on Saturday as the city reopened 14 miles of public beaches, one day after Mayor Eric Adams announced a surprise deal between NYC Parks and DC37, the union representing lifeguards, so more beaches could open during the Memorial Day weekend.

During a hastily scheduled press conference at City Hall on Friday, the Mayor and NYC Parks Commissioner Sue Donoghue said an arbitration panel issued an award in the city’s ongoing negotiations with the DC37 bargaining unit that will “functionally pave the way” for the city to be able to hire more lifeguards, allow more swimming capacity at beaches and pools, and improve operations of the city lifeguard program.
