Forest Hills Stadium: Queens Music Mecca - Long Island Weekly

FOREST HILLS, QUEENS — Grammy Award winning hip hop artist Nas was awarded a key to his home borough of Queens and a day in his honor after performing a benefit concert in Forest Hills.

Nas took to the Forest Hills Stadium stage last Thursday night in front of a rain-soaked audience — who didn’t let the weather prevent them from showing up to his “Concert to Feed NYC” benefiting City Harvest, the city’s largest food rescue organization.

The event tickets raised enough money for City Harvest to feed more than 2.5 million New Yorkers a day’s worth of food, which the organization said is particularly impactful as millions of people in the city struggle to put food on their tables amid the pandemic.

Where To Find Christmas Trees In 2020 In The Forest Hills Area

Best artificial Christmas trees of 2020 - Business Insider

At least 25 million real Christmas trees are sold each year across America, and currently, 350 million are growing in all 50 U.S. states. And despite these unprecedented times, the tree market is still up and running this holiday season. Christmas tree lots and choose-and-cut farms nationwide are taking precautions as the coronavirus pandemic worsens to ensure buyers can take home a tree with minimal risk to their family’s health and safety.

“We highly encourage growers to use these recommendations to develop strategies to protect their workers and customers,” the the National Christmas Tree Association wrote on its website this year, and “wholesale growers should share the recommendations for tree lots with their customers. Having a COVID-19 plan for your business is an imperative.”

Drive-In Movie Festival Coming To Queens !!

A drive-in movie festival is launching next month in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park.

CORONA, QUEENS — Drive-in movies are surging in popularity thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, and a new festival in Queens will bring the craze to the next level.

The nonprofit Rooftop Films is launching a drive-in movie festival on the grounds of the New York Hall of Science in Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, organizers announced Tuesday.

The festival will run from August to October and include screenings of new independent and foreign film, pre-show entertainment, live demonstrations, artist showcases and talks with experts on the movies’ themes.

Rooftop Films is curating the movie selections in partnership with the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria.

“With theaters shuttered and most festivals postponed or moving to streaming, we hope that these events will be part of a collaborative healing process for our neighbors, and give us an opportunity to once again spotlight the most daring new films from around the world,” Rooftop Films Artistic Director Dan Nuxoll said.

Tickets cost $35 per car and will go on sale in the coming weeks. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Elmcor, a social services organization based in Corona.

The festival will include a number of free screenings throughout the summer, and local community organizations will distribute free tickets to Corona and Elmhurst residents, thanks to a partnership with the Office of the Queens Borough President.

Rooftop Films is also hosting a companion festival in Brooklyn, which launched this past weekend on the pier of the Brooklyn Army Terminal.
