"I am deeply saddened by the bombings at the Boston Marathon. This is a horrible and senseless attack and my heart aches for all Bostonians, particularly those whose loved ones were killed or injured in this terrible tragedy.
I thank the bravery of the first responders and medical personnel who without hesitation rushed to help the victims. I know that law enforcement will not rest until they track down and bring to justice those responsible for this cowardly act.
At this difficult time, we send the thoughts and prayers of all Queens residents as well as all New Yorkers to everybody affected by this horrible tragedy."
