In September, the Jackson Heights Beautification Group, headed by then-President Nuala O’Doherty Naranjo, received a grant from Councilman Costa Constantinides as part of a larger funding of beautification efforts in his district as per a report in QNS — ““This funding will not just clean up trash along Ditmars Boulevard, care for street trees, or clean up around the BQE, it will help neighbors come together to improve their community which builds community,” said Nuala O’Doherty, president of the Jackson Heights Beautification Group.
