So here we go again, with Dynamic Collission (92-21 147 Pl) placing their junked cars on sidewalks in our community without any regard to laws and showing such little respect for the community they do business in. AND this definitely goes for all those auto body shops on Merrick Blvd.
Where are all Southeast Queens NYPD precincts on this, where are our local elected officials, where is Community Board 12 on this, especially Adrienne Adams, who is the community board chairperson, who is running for Senate (and we should vote for you) and District Manager Yvonne Reddick.
I have yet heard one power that be explain why laws are not being enforced with these auto body shops who have turned our community into their own private junk yard with both our public streets and public sidewalks.
WE WANT ANSWERS for this blatant illegal behavior that would NOT be tolerated in Forest Hills.
I work in Manhattan on West 57th Street and 11th Ave. There is an auto body shop on that street that is way more busy than any of these hood places and NOT ONE car is on the street or on the sidewalk EVER. It would not be tolerated.
So why it is completely tolerated in a community of color. Why is their a complete lack of enforcement on this issue. Why are our elected officials not speaking out on this and doing something about this. Just another quality of life issue being completely ignored like the several dozen that get ignored continuously from illegal garbage dumping to tractor trailers parked overnight on our streets and everything in between. Why doesn’t the media start asking the hard questions to our elected officials and city agencies on this issue. Why aren’t you holding them accountable and demanding answers NOT EXCUSES. Where is Queens Borough President Melinda Katz who is always talking about the “Jamaica Now Action Plan” which should be changed to Jamaica Now Non-Action Plan. Ms. Katz, would you allow this in your community, on your block? What is your answer?
Can I have one of you on my email list of so-called “powers that be” willing to give me an answer.
Only Senator Tony Avella (my senator) has stepped into this and none of these shops are in his district. Leroy Comrie is the senator for those areas and Daneek Miller is councilmember.
Community Board 13 District Manager, Maria Adam-Ovide ALWAYS answers my emails when I contact her about a problem on the North Side of Hillside. Not only does she answer me in a timely manner, she give a through explanation on the laws and what actions she will take to see that the problem is taken care of quickly. Nothing likes this at all with my own community board.
The inaction by all of you is totally appalling and has become so expected in this community. You are all just as bad as these thug auto body shops showing such a lack of respect for this community by your action on an issue that is completely ILLEGAL. It is obvious that black lives DON’T matter to any of you.
