Well, it looks like the big development, The Crossing, will finally be breaking ground in downtown Jamaica, and this development could be a real game changer for the area, which has deteriorated for decades. The Crossing will consists of two towers, a 26-story tower with 539 mixed-income apartments and the second will rise 14 stories and offer 130 apartments for low-income individuals and families.
Not that all low-income people are slobs and problematic (though many slobs/problematic folks fall into this group with their ghetto behavior and nonsense), I think by putting this group of people into the smaller tower maybe a good thing in the sense that I am sure the owners of this huge development will not tolerate any kind of nonsense and that these folks will have to learn to follow rules and conduct themselves in a proper fashion. Plus the folks in the big tower are certainly not going to be paying good money to deal with the problematic Jamaica element. No blasting music at all times of nights and days, no hanging out in front of the building making all kind of noise & drinking out of bags and all the other nonsense that this group tends to do. I am also sure there will be serious interviews to see who will get into this building , so it certainly is not going to be the problematic Jamaica element that we are so used to seeing all over that goes into this building (READ: Have a job and not a rap sheet with 10 incidents of robbery or assault). But hey, these folks NEED to learn proper civilized behavior not only for the neighborhood but for them as well to learn to better themselves and not be major problems all the time and make others around them miserable.
