So why the hell is NOTHING being done about the major problem of the auto body/repair shops complete take over of Merrick Blvd, where these shops for years have engaged in ILLEGAL behavior of placing junked, unlicensed and customer vehicles on the sidewalks completely blocking them for pedestrians, not only on Merrick Blvd, but the side streets as well, from Liberty to 110th Ave. AND the even bigger issue of these places COMPLETELY blocking the right hand lane of the very busy Merrick Blvd causing safety issues and causing traffic to bottleneck. THIS would never take place on Queens Blvd in Forest Hills, SO why is this STILL allowed to continue on Merrick, Comrie and Miller’s district. AND Adrienne Adams, where the hell are you on this issue, this is YOUR COMMUNITY.

> This is Joe, we met last night at the corner of Sutphin Blvd and Jamaica Ave for the Mayor’s big Jamaica tour, which he needs to come out and tour all the sites that I have documented on my blog for YEARS from the major garbage issue, having the poisonous polluting waste dump Royal Waste right in the downtown area near thousands of families while their large waste trucks barrel through Jamaica Ave in the downtown area (real good for promoting the area), dirty streets and sidewalks, and the issue of the take over of those questionable auto body shops along Merrick Blvd and elsewhere in Jamaica. AND this is just the tip of the iceberg all of the nonsense and poor quality of life in the area. AND then the homeless issue which has gotten worse with the continual dumping of homeless shelters, group home (which recently 4 young men from a local group home gang raped a mother of two last week, a few blocks from where our illustrious mayor was standing) and the many hotels turned into shelters or the hybrid of part hotel/part shelter like the Comfort inn right in downtown Jamaica.
AND his response:
I’ll have a team canvass Merrick and speak to the business owners.

I recently attended the Community Council meeting at the 105th precinct. I expressed my concerns about an illegal businesses being run out of a residential home on 107-16 Springfield Blvd in Queens Village. These individuals are fixing cars at all hours of the day right on Springfield blvd. In the process, they are dumping oil all over the street and sidewalks, and discarding oil down the sewer drains which eventually drains into Jamaica Bay. They have a tractor trailer parked in the driveway, and a full blown junkyard in the backyard! A couple residents at the meeting expressed concerns about this place as well, since it’s bringing down the quality of life in our neighborhood and devaluing our homes. The community affairs officer told me that they’ll be paying them a visit, and she’ll contact the DEP. I also contacted the NYS DEC Police twice and they were very helpful. I also filed 311 complaints with the DSNY and DOB, for the messy conditions, illegal parking of the tractor trailer, and of course the junkyard in the back. I just want to show your readers some of the ghetto nonsense that we deal with in SE Qns on a daily basis. Thanks.
So glad I have one more fucking week in this shitty community, where laws are not properly enforced, bad ghetto behavior is rampant and elected officials, church leaders and community leaders seem to do SHIT, including to this day that not one person has brought up the issue of a underage female who was pimped out of the Flake’s Senior Residence on Merrick for a month (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/06/12/11-days-the-flakes-and-greater-allen-church-have-made-no-comment-about-underage-girl-being-pimped-out-of-greater-allen-cathedral-senior-residence-for-four-months-plus-some-new-info-arises/), with not one person noticing this. WHY have not one of you made a statement regarding this young female. How was this able to take place in the one of Flake’s residences? But even more important, why don’t any of you give a shit.
