FIVE BLACK-OWNED RESTAURANTS IN QUEENS – FOUR OF THEM IN GREATER JAMAICA

And now some positivity in Greater Jamaica.

This is what is needed in the downtown Jamaica area to attract a better quality of people. In fact that shitty 165th Street mall section should be quality restaurants and retail as opposed to all the low-class ghetto shit that is now there.

VISION Folks, VISION!

This is what Greater Jamaica Development Corporation/Jamaica Alliance should be doing as opposed to blatantly stealing the “Clean Up Jamaica” name for their Jamaica Alliance Initiative acting like they have been doing this for years, when in fact they have NOT been documenting and cleaning up Jamaica and acting like they have been the only one. They certainly were not doing this since I got here in 2010.
