The same old Jamaica ghetto shit just continues and continues while elected officials, community board 12 and all the fucking church leaders in this community do JACK SHIT.
Ever wonder why people have such view communities of color as CRAP, this is it. All based on FACTS & REALITY.
YEP, SAME OLD GHETTO SHIT, JUST A DIFFERENT GHETTO DAY.
From Pamela Hazel, Community Activist:
The ongoing saga of Bushwalk/side walk latest episode is pending; because Boranian is sitting on her ass doing nothing. Boranian, you are in charge of constituents services; at Borough President Katz’s office. Well bushwalk/sidewalk has grown a few inches since you were last notified. A few days ago, I spoke to Mr. C., a tenant at the building on the corner of 171st. Place & 107 th. Avenue. An empty lot is apart of that property. Also, a wooden fence surrounds the lot and serves as a divider for bushwalk/sidewalk.
Both the lot and the sidewalk are laden with bushes. Mr. C. said, that he and other tenants have complained to the landlord on numerous occasions. He went on, non-stop, “This damn lot and sidewalk are taken over by: mosquitoes, raccoons and rats.”
Without warning a woman shouted from her apartment window in the building. “Lady, lady, our children are afraid to play in front of the building.”
They said that the landlord claims the lot belongs to the city. However, when they called 311 and other agencies, they are given the democratic runaround.
Boranian, are you capable of serving the voters that you are paid to serve? Maybe it is time to follow, Ms. Vasquez, your former co-worker.
About one week after I interrupted the State of the Borough address; Vasquez left. She was the one who was in the habit of hanging up the phone; when residents called with complaints.
Please call the appropriate agencies and rid our community of this dangerous conditions.
By the way, homeless Barry still sleeps on the sidewalk; near the e-train station. Also, Fobb’s property is filled with garbage. There is one positive report however.
The area around Metropolitan Lumber is clean and the bush was cut. Cleaning began the day after our protest; which was a few weeks ago. Nonetheless, the lumber remains uncovered and exposed to the weather. We ain’t done yet.
