AND let’s be REAL & HONEST, this is why NO ONE wants homeless shelters in their communities let alone communities that already have tons of them like Jamaica and SE Queens. The majority of the people going into them are problematic, lacking in social skills & manners, dirtbags, slobs and any other adjective or name you want to enter here______________. I have no damn sympathy for these folks, because they treat whatever areas they go into like a garbage dump.
AND no doubt that the homeless in this hotel turned slop house are not even from Ozone Park, I bet they are not even anywhere near the area. Again you don’t see these dirtbags being shipped into Forest Hills, hood of the evil white queens Melinda Katz. Wonder why?
From Queens Chronicle:
Homeless hotel causing problems in Ozone Park
Homeless people living at the Comfort Inn on Redding Street have been spotted engaging in illicit activities.

The Department of Homeless Services recently moved 27 homeless families into the Comfort Inn in Ozone Park — and a nearby resident says the area has become a hotspot for illicit activity.
“It’s filthy there,” said Dominic, a resident who lives nearby. “There’s food just laying on the windowsills all the time … people smoking marijuana outside.”
It’s unclear when the families were moved to the hotel, located at 137-30 Redding St., a short distance from PS/MS 202.
A spokeswoman for the DHS said in an emailed statement, “We are currently using some rooms in this location to shelter homeless families with children who would otherwise be turned out onto the street. We are using hotels as a bridge to shelter homeless New Yorkers while we work to increase shelter capacity citywide.”
Dominic said in addition to people smoking marijuana, he’s spotted people he believes to be living in the hotel engaging in sexual activity.
He’s not the only one to report such acts, as other residents have reported them to area politicians.
Police could not immediately be reached for comment.
