Queens to get $1M Planetarium by 2026
Senate Deputy Leader Michael Gianaris announced $1 million in state funding for first-ever planetarium located in the Borough of Queens. Housed at the Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens (VBGCQ), the planetarium will serve between 8,000 and 10,000 young people every year. The intergalactic learning center will be constructed as part of the club’s expansion into a new “state-of-the-art Clubhouse” spanning five stories and approximately 116,000 square feet. The state-funded hub will also have a 1,000-seat basketball arena, a regulation-size swimming pool, a research facility and laboratory, art studios, a career training tech center, a 175-seat community theater, a teaching kitchen — plus a greenhouse, garden and solar panel-equipped rooftop.

For many retired homeowners, reverse mortgages can be a source of extra income that allows them to tap into their home equity. The process has also become simpler and safer for those who are interested in applying. That being said, there are many factors to keep in mind—including potential risks—when considering a reverse mortgage.
