Like the many photos used to create one on the front page of this
issue, there are many things Gary Ackerman has accomplished that have
enhanced life as a whole in our borough.
As a teacher, Ackerman devoted himself to helping less advantaged
As a journalist, he created a unique brand of community journalism.
As an elected official, he has served Queens and its various communities.
