Dear Editor:

This is for all those trying to get vaccinated against Coronavirus. Try calling (877) 829-4692, the NYC Vaccine Reservation Call Center, in the early afternoon, after 2 p.m. and again after 5 pm.

I tried to get an appointment for the vaccine for a week or two. I would go online at the “vaccine finder.nyc.gov” and try throughout the day, but get frustrated by 3 p.m. and give up for the day. On February 10, I went online around noon and first tried Beach Channel Ed. Campus, at Beach 100th Street and elsewhere. I spent the next 15 or 20 minutes trying to fine an appointment. I even tried to find an appointment on Staten Island. Around 5:30 p.m., someone I know told me he got an appointment at Beach Channel for the next day

 Dear Editor:

Would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the entire Covid vaccine staff at Beach Channel High School. I went for two Moderna vaccines—January 16, and February 20, and from the moment I got dropped off to the time I left, I was treated by compassionate and dedicated workers.  Everything was so well organized.  I am proud to live in a city where people truly care for one another. I also hope that more people get vaccinated so we can eradicate this virulent virus. Thank you again

I doubt that I am the first one to write a letter to the media in regards to homeowners/ landlords who have suffered with the NYS Moratorium Eviction Prevention Act. I along with many have felt frightened and feel that the true victims have been those that are homeowners/ landlords. I have a tenant who has continued to terrorize my family and I and continues not to pay rent and has even had weapons confiscated by the NYPD but with no avail as to moving out. I find it absurd

Dear Editor:

The Random Act of Kindness Day isn’t until February 17, 2021 but for one Rockaway block, Beach 123rd Street-200 block, it came a week early. After this past week’s two-day storm, many residents woke up to find their sidewalks shoveled or should I say snowblowed? The snow edges had a perfect cut so it must have been someone with a snowblower or a very meticulous snow angel. No one was a Republican, Democrat or independent this day, we were all just neighbors treated to an

One more letter about Rogoff's! Unlike many other recent nostalgic letters about Rogoff's, my relationship with this store "only" goes back about 20 years. That is when I moved here from my Brooklyn, where we had raised our family, with my husband, Kevin O'Mealy, who grew up here.

I immediately took a liking to the store that reminded me of the old 5&10 on Flatbush Ave. near Kings Highway, where my sisters and I spent much of our childhoods. At Rogoff's in Rockaway, I found

Dear Editor:

It was interesting to read about the expected demolition of that abandoned building at Riis Park in the Rockaway Times.

I have fond memories of my children performing 'Little Shop of Horrors' in the cafeteria of that facility in collaboration with and to the delight of those elderly residents. It is a shame that the building was emptied out suddenly and for no apparent good reason in 1998, depriving the people living there of their home and great views of the Atlantic Ocean.

(As sent to the NYC Parks Department)

Now that the snow is melting, major damage from snow plowing on the boardwalk is coming to light. Plowing has caused, at minimum, tens of thousands of dollars in damages. We need to reevaluate how snow is removed, if at all!!

We cannot use the same methods to clear the boardwalk as we do a paved street. With expansion joints every 40 feet for over four miles, steel blade plows are totally the wrong way to approach snow removal, as is proven
