Police said the victim went to Elmhurst Hospital but didn’t have information about the victim’s condition.

The witness said the woman’s injuries were not too serious and that she took a cab to the hospital to avoid being charged ambulance fees.

The witness was stunned that the victim’s first concern after being attack was her medical bills.

That block has always been shady, particularly in the middle. Anyhow the 36th avenue corridor is not considered prime Astoria and was always low brow even when I was a kid. You can call it the ‘Kaufman Arts District’ or whatever other fashionable left-wing term you desire but its still a crappy area aesthetically and demographically.
