I must say that every time I walk by the Moda “Upgraded Living” Apartments and see that sign, I just laugh. UPGRADED LIVING, only if “upgraded” in Jamaica means garbage, litter, an outdoor drinking cafe for the local drug addicts & homeless and the MODA outdoor restrooms.
And with this location, you get just a block away, the Rufus King Outdoor Homeless Shelter & Garbage Dump.
FROM THE MODA WEBSITE:
From the moment you enter your Moda apartment it will feel like home. Designed for living — and living it up — you’ll enjoy all the comforts and conveniences that are distinctly Moda.
If you haven’t seen Moda, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Well, we are GOING TO SHOW YOU WHAT YOU ARE MISSING as THE PHILTER shows in photos, you know REALITY.
From The Philster, Roving Reporter of CRAP:
Upgraded living “Jamaica Style” at The Moda. Just think of the lovely sites and smells the diners at Dallas BBQ will have to endure while eating their meals in the outdoor seating. Photo 10 shows the outdoor bathroom options at Moda. You know where the bathroom is because the smell of urine knocks you out of your shoes about a 1/2 a block away. Plenty of opportunities to make a little side change at The Moda with all the empty beer cans and bottles disposed of in ghetto fashion in the tree pits. There’s plenty to go around, the gentlemen in the picture said he sticks to the cans because the bottle are too heavy to carry around. Yup, pay market rate rent to have your residence use it as a drinking spot, urinal, and trash dump. Only in Jamaica.
At least Zara and Chetrits building on 88th Ave keep their properties clean. I think anything affiliated with the Grater Jamaica Development Corporation is going to be a glorified housing projects for the locals.
