Dear Editor:

As an avid reader of Goldy’s weekly column, I admire her dedication to finding ideal mates for singles. As such, when I read this past week’s article about the “Not Crazy Cat Lady,” I smiled because my nephew has a similar problem. He is a 39-year-old, never married, 5’10” Long Islander who is truly a great, sweet, down-to-earth guy who would be appreciative to date a woman in the tri-state area. His greatest challenges are:

As someone who was born and raised in Kew Gardens Hills in the early 1960s (and became a bar mitzvah at the Young Israel of Kew Gardens Hills in 1975), I have been following the Letters to the Editor about the composition of the neighborhood with interest.

Dear Readers,

Over the years, we have published a number of letters in this paper regarding changes in the demographics of Kew Gardens Hills and its surroundings.

We were mistaken to publish that letter, and I apologize for that oversight.

I have been following the reaction to Anonymous’ letter with amusement. It seems to me that everyone read into it whatever they wanted to. There is no need to assume animosity just because that person pointed out the obvious reality that the neighborhood is changing.

Dear Editor:

I was appalled to read the letter from Anonymous who opines that people are moving out of the community because “Bukharians are moving in by the droves.” How tragic that she spews such sin’as chinam right before the Three Weeks.
