CORONA, NY — Council Member Francisco Moya and Assemblywoman Ari Espinal will join officers from the NYPD’s 110 Precinct to paint over graffiti reading “Surenos 13” on the No. 7 train’s 111th Street train station in Corona, Queens, at 3:30 p.m. Friday.
“Gang activity will find no safe haven here,” Council Member Francisco Moya said. “I have dedicated my life to defending my community and I will continue to do so against gangs like this, which use intimidation and fear to divide neighbors and prey primarily on young Latinos.”
“In the neighborhood that I was born and raised in, there will always be zero-tolerance for gang activity,” Assemblywoman Ari Espinal said. “I will continue to work with the NYPD and my fellow elected officials to shut down those who seek to prey on vulnerable members of our community.”
Moya and Espinal first contacted the 110 Precinct after spotting the graffiti while on their way to visit the Korean American Senior Center on 111th Street Friday morning.
