$2.2 million dollars dumped into Rufus King Park for it to look some ghetto third world dump courtesy of our vibrant, diverse, homeless, drug addict and ghetto slobs whom our elected officials like Queens BP Katz, Councilman Miller & Lancman, Assembly Member Hyndman and Senator Comrie will never call out on their bullshit especially during election time, but none of them would ever comment on the condition of Rufus King Park period. OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND
But here at CLEANUP JAMAICA QUEENS, we deal in REALITY, TRUTH, FACTS, PHOTOS, EVIDENCE.
But I would at least expect some vocals from non-elected officials like Greater Development President Hope Knight and her crew there or Rhonda Binda, Executive Director of Jamaica BID, since these groups are responsible for the betterment of Jamaica and are actually trying very hard, but is such an uphill battle since probably at least 50% of the Jamaica population are low-class ghetto slobs and the continuous dumping of homeless shelters and that element into the downtown area (notice how both Rufus King Park & Major Mark Park are becoming outdoor homeless shelters). AND what about so-called other people who call themselves “community activists” or “community advocates”. I hear some folks from Jamaica say that term to describe themselves, yet NEVER hear them on the quality of life issues except the one true community activist, Pamela Hazel.
NEWSFLASH: If all the Jamaica development happening is just going to bring in this same element, there is no HOPE (no pun intended) for the future of Jamaica. AND let’s be real and honest, just like the Harlem renaissance, if you can not attract middle to upper middle class white people, game over. PLUS, you certainly are not going to attract quality families with school age kids, since the Jamaica area schools are some of the worst in the borough and city, with low graduation rates, high percentage of students not able to speak proper English and many graduating with 5th grade reading skills. You really want to be considered a “Diverse” community, bring in or at least attract the white, because the black & brown certainly have not been doing any kind of bang up job at all in helping the improvement of the community.
So below is the wonderful Rufus King Park in all its glory. With the exception of St. Albans Park, the other parks rank as pretty shitty due to litter/garbage in this order of SHIT:
- Major Mark Park
- Rufus King Park
- Roy Wilkins Park
- Baisley Pond Park
So try using Rufus King Park as a selling point to live here in downtown Jamaica and feel free to use the below photos for your brochures.
