Continuing the tour of the 1st Jamaica Clean-Up Protest on Saturday, June 29th, not only reveals a very dark side, South Jamaica, but how totally ineffective our elected leaders have been in dealing with the horrendous quality of life garbage problem.
As we begin to make our way toward South Jamaica and then eventually to the downtown area, we encounter some sights that look as if we are in some third world shit hole, not one of the richest cities in the world and as Mikey Bloomberg likes to state, “New York City, the greatest city in the world.” Hey Mike, come out to Jamaica, specifically South Jamaica and see what is going on.
Well as we walk along 108th Ave, we encounter yet again, another abandoned vehicle. ( I have already lost count at this point).
Yet again, another car or should I say cars, all along 108th Avenue, leading to Merrick Blvd. What the fuck, this is a residential area, not some storage unit for wayward cars.
Now some garbage, and in prime Jamaica form, garbage just dumped all over the street. Really why bother using your own garbage cans, just dump it on the street.
After crossing over Merrick Blvd, we come to the combo of garbage(near the light pole) and a cargo trailer with no cab. Should someone check this out, there could be a bunch of dead illegals in there. Wow you think after 911, things like this would be checked out carefully.
Next stop, the notorious James Fobb abandoned home and crackheads & prostitutes summer Jamaica house. Two women from this neighborhood joined our march and began telling us about all the kinds of stuff going on in this abandoned home. I see a health violation and a sanitation one as well, not counting the backdoor that is wide open as you will see in the next photo.
The back entrance and as you can see, the door wide open to welcome crackheads, prostitutes, rapists and any other kind of riffraff.
And what was once a garage is now a big dumping ground. This was the site of the infamous hundreds of tires scene back in March.
In front of the Middle Eastern deli at Guy Brewer and 108th. Anyone in the mood for two eggs with cheese on a bagel?
Another corner at Guy Brewer and 108th.
And yet another corner at Guy Brewer and 108th. The Jamaica version of the Bermuda Triangle.
More garbage, well, like lots more garbage.
Same block, different garbage.
In front of a Preschool. The future of America.
Here is what you get when you mix very low class ghetto black people, with low class Hispanics and then spread it all over with a huge heaping tablespoon of extremely low class Middle Eastern/Pakistani. “Vibrant and Diverse” enough for you? Ask yourself this, WOULD YOU LIVE HERE? Now before you scream why don’t you include white people. I can’t, none live in this area, otherwise I would include Honey Boo Boo’s family.
I make a little detour on South Road, which I never even heard of. This is a major Shanty Town hell hole, in back of York College.
More of South Road.
Inside all of those high weeds.
Now next to all that shit, is a somewhat fixed up house that is home to three Pakistani families. I guess from where they came from they must feel like The Jeffersons, “Were Movin’ On Up”. Christ, what the fuck has happened to this community.
The prerequisite outside mattresses, or as South Jamaica likes to say, “Ghetto Camping”.
And what would South Jamaica be without the long standing burnt out house, which will sit longer than former senator Shirley Huntley’s prison sentence.
Or the abandoned home, complete with tires and outside mattress. A bargain, you probably would not even have to haggle with Mohammed the realtor.
Of course another car.
And another one, nice black crown vic.
And let’s not forget the empty lot, with an opening on both sides to cross over to 165th. Damn, these are some major major fucking disgusting human beings, well barely human.
And after going through the opening of the above lot, I come out the other end to see another empty lot with major amounts of shit, tree stumps, tree branches and major amounts of garbage. But the really interesting part was what was directly across from it………………..read on.
This I found extremely interesting. This house which the above car is next to, along with a car in the front yard (not pictured) and tons of cars in the back yard (the red one is one of them) and lined up all around the street (most with no plates) is a duplex, but yet there is a small sign several feet away with an arrow pointing in the direction of this house, “Clyde’s Auto Repair”. Now I am not an expect on the laws, but can a house with people living in it also be an auto repair shop at the same time. This seems like something you would see in the sticks of Alabama. I do think we have at least one violation going on as well as a health violation.
This is just one of many cars with no license plate at this property.
Oh my GOD (and that is pretty bad considering that I am an atheist), I felt like I took a double dose of acid. Damn, this was one hell of a protest march and very revealing, kind of like the “Jamaica Revealed” event a few months ago. The South Jamaica area was, well I am at a loss of words, well not really. You want to talk about racism and black on black crime. Here we have an area, all people of color and not all of them “low class ghetto” (there are some long time residents from back in the day, when this was a relatively nice area, who have nowhere else to go) who have to suffer due to incompetence by our elected officials, all who are people of color and more specifically black (and that includes Helen Marshall). They have pretty much ignored this area and looks like they have done absolutely NOTHING for decades here. REMEMBER: Cancer spreads all over if it is not caught or treated in time.
Now the actual March went down Guy Brewer to Jamaica Avenue and ended at an abandoned home on 168 Pl/90th Ave, but I had to see some of these other sites in South Jamaica.
The Jamaica clean-up protest march ended here, a block away from the Police Station and the future sight of the $50 million retail project
Shit I cannot wait to get back to my own neighborhood, a few blocks from that abandoned home above…………………………..Oh shit, spoke to soon. Here is a major health and DOS violation that I reported over a week ago. I guess you folks did not get a chance to go to Shah Nowrose’s place. No big surprise here with that name. Sorry but this group of people are major pigs and they can really fuck up a neighborhood and lucky us, we got a shitload of them with our already low class ghetto people.Okay I apologize, pigs are actually much cleaner and do not like to live in filth.
Unlike this crew.
And of course next door, the vacant lot that I have been complaining about and reporting and it still looks like shit.
Okay, excuse me for a minute while I go to the bathroom and puke my guts out and take a long shower.
Any wonder why we had a Clean-Up Jamaica Protest. Too bad we did not have more people or a presence of at least one of our political leaders.
Of course none of these loving sights could not be possible without all of the low class ghetto element in our community and our wonderful leadership of Queens Borough Helen Marshall, Councilman Leroy Comrie, Assemblymember Vivian Cook, Senator Malcolm Smith, Congressman Gregory Meeks, Assemblymember William Scarborough, Councilman Ruben Wills, Senator James Sanders, former Senator corrupt douche bag Shirley Huntley and all the business/community leaders who like to spout out that Jamaica is “Vibrant and Diverse”.
So, were these photos vibrant and diverse enough for you. And for you downtown head honcho folks, if you think that all this kind of shit, even in South Jamaica does not have any bearing on the downtown area, you have another thing coming, because this cancer is spreading and everyone is being affected by this. And along with all this shit is the crime that is attached with it. So you all better get off your asses and come up with some kind of action plan and solution.
Unless you like Jamaica having the reputation of not just Ghetto, but SUPERSIZED GHETTO!
AGAIN, GOOD FUCKING JOB ELECTED OFFICIALS. THIS IS SOMETHING TO BE EXTREMELY PROUD OF IT.
A big thanks to those who came out, my friend and comrade, Pamela Hazel for organizing the protest, Agnes Chung from NY1, Michael Gannon from Queens Chronicle, Queens Borough President Everly Brown, Kew Gardens City Council Candidate Jon Torodash and Sondra Peeden, District 27 City Council Candidate.
