Crane drops load on subway tracks in Queens

"Thank god no train was coming by when this happened."

That's how one MTA worker called to the scene assessed the situation. After a crane working on a building alongside the Number 7 subwaytracks here at Roosevelt and College Point Blvd. lost control of its load.  Dumping it in the tracks below.  Sparking a small fire.  

One person here who didn't see it but heard it thought it was a bomb as the sound echoed between buildings and then the smoke began to rise.  "Like what you see on TV in Syria or Iraq," he said.

This was her last run - before leaving to go to medical school. but Hinal Patel answered the Call - when East Brunswick called for mutual aid at an accident. She and her partner - mark Seube - rushing to the scene - when they collided with a Prius. 

East Brunswick police say the ambulance flipped - crushing and killing Patel - who was in the passenger seat. Her partner - and the other driver - both rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Barbara Felton, Agent 99, is as beautiful and lovely as her small screen image

I have to say, all these years later and the lady still has ''got it." Not just a remarkable physical beauty. But she's a beautiful woman throughout. Kind, generous, smart, attentive.

This is the Barbara Feldon I met today at her apartment in New York City. For an interview on Elliott Gordon's channel on Firetalk.

I don't get flustered about meeting celebrities. But I was when it came to meeting Feldon. The only other star that had such an affect on me was Carol Burnett.

In Astoria, Queens the talk is of the vote in Greece

In this neighborhood lined with Greek restaurants and coffee shops and churches, it's easy to find people talking about the no vote in Greece to an austerity referendum European leaders were hoping would pass. Some here say the people "back home" are cutting off their noses to spite themselves. Others say, they are standing up for themselves and moving toward self determination. But some who actually supported a no vote are worried about what's next for their countrymen and women in Greece.
