So do you think that spring is here? Well the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation thinks so.

Our "Spring is Here" Dinner Dance will take place on Friday, June 6. So mark your Calendars for the social event of the year. More information on this to come. 
There will be a free seminar by the U.S. Small Business Administration on April 15 from 9:30 to noon called "Obtaining Financing for Your Business Workshop" at 290 Broadway, 30th Floor, Room 10, in Manhattan. RSVP to

As of April 1, the New York City Paid Sick Leave bill goes into effect. It requires employers to provide one hour of sick time for every 30 hours worked by an employee, up to 40 hours of sick time leave in a calendar year.

An “employee” is anyone who works more than 80 hours in a calendar year on a

If you are a senior citizen and want to enjoy a nice lunch, good company and fun activities, join our Woodhaven Senior Center. Call (718) 847-9200 ofr more information. Meetings are held at American Legion Hall, 89-02 91st Street. They need more members, so join today.

Our J line was chosen as one of two train lines for having the cleanest cars in Queens. So it not only looks good since it was painted - after the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation and the Woodhaven Business Improvement District 25 years of pursuing it - our J line is also one of the cleanest in Queens.

Mark your calendars for next Saturday April 12, for our WBID Spring Promotion with music and clowns from 1 to 4 p.m. along the avenue and free pictures with the Easter Bunny in the Forest Parkway Plaza area with free goodies from our bunny helpers.

Also, look for our WBID staff members with their WBID hats distributing free quarters on our Woodhaven’s Jamaica Avenue to parking cars thanking them for shopping here by paying for their first 15 minutes on the parking meters.

May God bless our leaders, may God bless our armed forces, may God bless our disabled veterans, and may God bless our America.
