Yes, come to the “hot up-n-coming neighborhood of Jamaica” where one can take in many beautiful attractions in the downtown area and beyond. Visit a couple of slaughterhouses like Aziz and pet a bull, partake in the beheading of it or our Jamaica’s monthly own version of the “Running of the Bulls”.
Take in the fresh aroma of Royal Waste which hauls garbage from all over NYC 24/7.Visit our many lovely auto body shops on Merrick Blvd (the new Willets Point) and watch expert auto mechanics in action.See where half the homeless population live in such fine encampments like Jamaica Center Station, LIRR/Sutphin Blvd or 179th Street or better yet make a visit to our over 30 homeless shelters and adopt a homeless person. And after a full day of tourist attraction, make sure to stop by our several 99 cent stores or beauty supply stores to bring home Jamaica souvenirs to the folks back home to make them envious. Of course by that time, you have worked up a big appetite and visit our many fine food establishments like a variety of fast food chains or stand up dining options.
So from Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, Senator Leroy Comrie, Congressman Gregory Meeks, Jamaica BID, Greater Jamaica Development Corporation and Community Board 12, WELCOME TOURISTS to beautiful Downtown Jamaica. And remember as Madame Katz repeatedly states: “If it is good for families, it is good for Queens”. So come on down to Downtown Jamaica and enjoy all the sights, sounds and smells. AND if you are planning to stay overnight, visit one of our many hybrid hotels/homeless shelters like the Ramada Jamaica Queens at 164-40 Hillside Avenue.
