Walking on Archer to Jamaica Center Station (while filming a NY1 story on trucks parked illegally in the Jamaica LIRR Tunnels to air sometime next week) literally can kill you. As can be seen this waste truck on Archer Ave behind the Gertz Mall, not only is it blocking one lane of traffic, BUT blocks the sidewalk for pedestrians, forcing them to go out into the street with all the traffic. No area to walk, no barriers, not NYPD traffic patrol. A major safety hazard that probably happens every morning or at least a few times a week.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!
And talking about safety issues, look at the crumbling Merrick LIRR overpass Tunnel and along Archer Avenue. Amazing!
And of course an illegally parked tractor trailer cab parked inside the Merrick LIRR Tunnel right in front of a NO PARKING ANYTIME Sign, which is for that entire side. This truck cab has been sitting for several days. There are No Parking signs on the other side (except for Authorized Vehicles from NYPD Division of Parole), but there are several cars that are not authorized there. Again a disaster waiting to happen. There should be NO vehicles allowed inside tunnels.
And look at this garbage right in Downtown Jamaica at the old parking lot on Archer east of Guy Brewer. And Councilman Miller stated in an article how beautiful downtown Jamaica is. RIGHT.
Unlicensed cars from HC Auto Collision taking up room on city streets and sidewalks.
And this regular site. Hard work being a homeless person.
Christ, it is like going thru the Jamaica Ghetto Gauntlet to head to work.
The bullshit that goes on in this community that should not, is so out of control. It is like no one gives a damn anymore. STEP PUT ELECTED OFFICIALS & Borough President. This area if a damn MESS.
