So is this part of the revitalization of Jamaica? Is this the big plan coming from the Jamaica Now Action Plan? And you thought that most homeless on the street were black or white. Welcome our Bangladeshi homeless as can be seen in this video of a man who came to Jamaica Center to avoid the snow from last week and then decided to make Jamaica Center Station his new home.
Ironic this newscast has NOT one appearance of a local elected official from Jamaica, not even a sound bite. AND where is Queens BP Melinda “If its good for Queens, its good for families” Katz.
So hey homeless “COME ON DOWN to JAMAICA HOMELESS VILLAGE” where you can stay all day in the station, where you have full access to bathrooms and can ride the E train back and forth as long as you want.
In reality, This is the NEW JAMAICA. Forget all the bullshit of the Jamaica Now Action Plan or any type of revitalization.
THIS IS THE REALITY OF JAMAICA. But we folks in the know, already knew this, especially Jamaica resident and community activist Pamela Hazel who has been reporting on this for years to deaf ears. HEY, but remember:
