Get into a conversation with a long time Queens resident
and you're likely to discover a subscriber of the Long Island Star- Journal,
a daily paper that informed the community about local and world news until
it folded in 1968. A banner across the Star Journal masthead reminded
readers that the newspaper's name came from the merger of the Long Island
Daily Star (1876) and the North Shore Daily Journal - The Flushing Journal
The Mary Powell sailed the Hudson River, a ship close in
resemblance to the one sailing the East River.
