Peace in Queens

Tomorrow, expect a minor earthquake in Queens. Around noonish.

That’s when longtime Democratic insurgent Hiram Monserrate and Democratic County Leader Joe Crowley will attend what I think is their first public event together, announcing funding for local organizations serving immigrants.

Monserrate ran and supported numerous candidates against the county organizations in the past and has reveled in his independence from the machine. Crowley took over the organization earlier this year and has been dogged by speculation that he’d one day have to defend his seat against a candidate who appeals to his district’s “changing demographic.”

But all that’s in the past now, apparently. The advisory for the event is after the jump.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
