QUEENS HOUSING PRICES RISING INCLUDING JAMAICA AND FOLKS WHO TRASHED IT FOR YEARS ARE GOING TO BE PRICED OUT, WELL SHOULD HAVE TAKEN BETTER CARE OF YOUR COMMUNITY INSTEAD OF TURNING INTO A FUCKING GHETTO

In the article below:

A spokeswoman for Neighborhood Housing Services of Jamaica, which caters to middle- and lower-income buyers, said the effect on the agency’s clients has been bad. “They’re being priced out of the market,” she said.

I have said this before as have others, many of the residents & asshole elected officials and community leaders like the religious sect, should have fucking takeN much better care of their community over the decades as opposed to trashing the fuck out of it and doing all other kind of nonsense that allowed property values to drop like a lead brick. Of course others and the real estate developers were going to swoop in, I mean what the fuck did you think was going to happen. Between the low-class slobs, the gang bangers, the hood rats, the fucked up leaders in this community who looked the other way and allowed bullshit to happen, you all have no one to blame but your fucking selves.

BUT I will tell you who will not be complaining, all the homeowners who for decades watched their property values drop because of the ghetto crew.

So, well,  EAT SHIT NOW and find another place to fucking destroy or better yet, learn to act like civilized people and show some damn pride in your community. I mean, hell, look at what the fucking slobs have done to the recently fixed up Rufus King Park, I mean already they are trashing it.

Homeowners who take care of their property and those who have respect for their community don’t give a shit if the bottom folks get tossed, they are the ones that fucked it up to begin with while crooked and do nothing black leaders sat back and watched.

Queens sees strong ’17 housing market

Prices rising, homes selling quickly; interest rates still friendly for buyers

Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017 10:30 am | Updated: 1:09 pm, Thu Apr 20, 2017.

The Queens housing market made a very strong showing in the first quarter of 2017, according to one of the most pre-eminent residential real estate firms in the country.

Douglas Elliman Real Estate, based in Manhattan, said in its monthly report that median sales prices in the borough were up 21.3 percent over the first quarter of 2016.

The average sales price for a house was $558,259, up 17.4 percent from January through March a year ago.

“Brooklyn and Queens continue to show a very fast moving pace with rising sales and falling inventory,” the Elliman report states. “Price trends are setting new records — the median sales price reached a new high for the third consecutive quarter.”

Queens saw 3,395 house sales in the first quarter, an increase of 34.9 percent from 2016 and the highest total in nine years.

Listed inventory was down 4 percent over a year ago. The firm also says the Queens market is benefiting from a “Brooklyn spillover.” Sarah Burke, a managing director at Elliman, said the market is strong.

“Whether that is good or bad depends on if you are a buyer or seller,” she said.

Steven Pacchiano, a broker with Connexion 1 Real Estate in Howard Beach, and Tom LaVecchia, the owner and a broker with Howard Beach Realty in Ozone Park, concur with that assessment to varying degrees.

“It’s been very busy the last year-and-a half,” Pacchiano said. “If you’re looking to buy, prices are up. But interest rates also are pretty low right now. Interest rates are at about 3.3 percent and eventually they’ll go up to 4 and eventually 5 percent. So right now is a good market for sellers and buyers.” He and LaVecchia confirmed that inventory is down but both said deals are there to be had “if the price is right.”

“Right now, you might put a house on the market for a few days or maybe a month,” LaVecchia said. “In the past you could have a house listed for a year. Right now there are more buyers than sellers, so that drives prices up.

“Finding a mortgage right now won’t be a problem for most people,” he added. “Finding your dream home is, because of the lower inventory.”

A spokeswoman for Neighborhood Housing Services of Jamaica, which caters to middle- and lower-income buyers, said the effect on the agency’s clients has been bad.

“They’re being priced out of the market,” she said.

Burke said the Elliman report does not deal with rental properties, but that market forces would have their natural impact on that market.

“If you can’t buy right now, you are going to live somewhere,” she said.

LaVecchia, who has been in the business for 43 years, said realtors had listings in abundance as recently as the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

“But the market has stabilized,” he said. “Nothing in this business surprises me anymore. For every downturn, we have an upswing.”

COMING TO THE AVE: MORE NEW CRAP TO REPLACE OLD SHITTY CRAP

The community of Jamaica, always keeping the bar as fucking ghetto low as can be. So I guess the steps in the community are:

  1. LOW-CLASS GHETTO THIRD WORLD SHIT & CRAP
  2. GHETTO SHIT & CRAP
  3. GHETTO FAB
  4. DECENT
  5. ???????????????

——————————–

OLD JAMAICA SHIT

OLD SHIT: A & J Unisex and Friendly Uniform & More (which is really African Movie Store), they just did not bother to replace the sign.

NEW JAMAICA SHIT

(because you can never have enough fried chicken and burgers in this community). Well, at least Texas Chicken & Burger, which is a chain states “All of our beef and chicken come from farms where they are ethically housed and fed a fully grain-based diet – and never get administered antibiotics, growth hormones, or other unnatural chemicals.” There are over a dozen of these places in NYC, mostly in ghettoish areas, which tell you something.

 

 

DICK CAT KILLER, FAR ROCKWAY PUSSY GIOVANNI OLIVO FACES TWO YEARS IN JAIL – NEW YORK NEEDS TO UP THE PENALTY FOR ASSHOLES LIKE OLIVO

Another coward and pussy ass animal abuser and killer, Giovanni Olivo, will face two years in prison for the abuse and killing of his cat. But two years is NOT ENOUGH. New York needs to crank up the penalty for assholes like Olivo who are not men but punk asses who abuse and kill innocent animals.

Pretty boy, better bring lots of lube with you, because the guys are going to make your anus look like the Lincoln Tunnel.

You are not a man, you are not even a boy. May the rest of your life bring nothing but misery.

From The Daily News:

Queens man accused of tossing cat off balcony then stomping it to death denies guilt: ‘I’m an animal lover’

A Queens man was charged with chucking a cat off a third-floor balcony and then stomping it to death in front of horrified kids, authorities said Tuesday.

“You’re dead to this world,” Giovanni Olivo, 30, allegedly hollered while killing the cat, authorities said.

Queens prosecutors say the Far Rockaway man carried out the attack on Sept. 30, first hurling the adult, female cat off the balcony of his Beach 26th St. home.

The kitty miraculously survived the fall, said District Attorney Richard Brown.

But its resilience only prompted Olivo to storm downstairs and stomp the life out of the wounded cat in full view of a crowd of adults and children, Brown said.

Reached Tuesday, Olivo told the Daily News he denies the charges. “It’s nonsense,” he said. “I’ve never harmed a cat a day in my life.”

Olivo said it was a neighbor who battered the cat. All Olivo did was call 911 to report it, he added. “I’m an animal lover,” said the one-time barber, who claimed to regularly care for stray animals. I’m sitting here cuddling with a cat right now.”

Olivo was arraigned Monday on a three-count indictment charging him with a felony count of aggravated cruelty to animals and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Queens Supreme Court Justice Barry Kron released Olivo under a supervised program and ordered him to return to court on July 13.

The accused animal abuser faces up to two years in prison.

 

STEVE STEPHENS, THE FACEBOOK KILLER SHOOTS SELF BEFORE EATING HIS LAST GHETTO MEAL “MACONDALD’S” CHICKEN MCNUGGETS – IT FIGURES

Last ghetto meal for Stephens. HA! It figures.

Well, Facebook killer punk-ass Steve Stephens never did make it to Jamaica Queens, instead doing everyone a favor and saving much money by eating a bullet before his last ghetto meal, McDonald’s chicken nuggets. He went out a typical coward and in fashionable ghetto style with a box of McNuggets. Ghetto all the fucking way to the end.

GOOD FUCKING RIDDANCE ASSHOLE.

To bad he had to take another life, elderly Robert Goodwin Sr.

From The Daily News:

Facebook murderer Steve Stephens kills himself after McDonald’s visit and police pursuit in Pennsylvania

Robert Goodwin Sr. killed by Steve Stephens.

He ordered 20 McNuggets to go — and then took himself out.

Facebook killer Steve Stephens, outed by a fast-thinking fast-food worker, ended his life and a massive three-day manhunt Tuesday by pumping a bullet into his head as Pennsylvania state troopers closed in.

McDonald’s workers held the internet executioner at the drive-thru window in Harborcreek Township, Pa., until cops arrived at the scene beginning a slow-speed chase, said police Major William Teper Jr.

The fast-food outlet’s owner recounted how one of his workers dialed 911 while another cooked up a story about a problem with the French fries ordered with the McNuggets — at a cost of $5.35 — around 11:10 a.m. More at http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/facebook-killer-steve-stephens-found-dead-pennsylvania-article-1.3069497

 

 

WHAT’S THE BUZZ IN JAMAICA: HILLSIDE AVENUE WATER BREAK GOING ON FOR 10 DAYS & “DIVERSE & VIBRANT” RESIDENTS TRASH $2 MILLION DOLLAR RUFUS KING PARK

Ten days and counting of flooding from water break on Hillside Avenue in front of a bus stop, running down 171st Street and pooling in front of homes on 88 Ave, despite numerous complains from residents and businesses and the situation is getting worse. I have called 911 twice, spoke with FDNY, contacted DEP, as has the owner of the deli at Hillside & 171st. Don’t think this would go on for two days if in front of Katz’s house in Forest Hills or Mayor DickBlasios’ place in Park Slope. New video of Hillside River coming soon.

In other Jamaica Buzz, $2 million dollars and up for upgrades in Rufus King Park, but why, our low-class “diverse and vibrant” population just trashes it.

There is a great line in the Kelsy Grammer Starz series “BOSS”, where they were planning on upgrading run down projects made awful from residents, drug dealers and gang bangers:

“So you want to upgrade the ghetto projects and put the same people back in them that caused the problems to begin with.”

Apply that to Jamaica. Some of you might not like the damn tone, but no denying the photos or the words behind all of this. You folks know the truth, just will only say it behind closed doors.

VERY HYPOCRITICAL QUEENS EVENT TO RAISE MONEY TO CURE CANCER: EATING CARCINOGEN HOT DOGS

Kind of hypocritical considering that hot dogs contain so many carcinogens and are linked to cancer. Who thought this  bullshit up. Why not go all out and add cigarettes to the mix with a shot of asbestos.

Come take a bite out of cancer and support the Middle Village Relay for Life at a hot dog eating contest fundraiser at Pat’s Sports Bar in Middle Village later this month.

Participants will gather on Sunday, April 30, at 3 p.m. at Pat’s Sports Bar located at 73-13 Metropolitan Ave. to put their speed eating skills to the test as they try to eat a set number of hot dogs in the fastest time.

 “This is not going to be like the Coney Island hot dog contest where you see how many hot dogs you can eat in a set amount of time,” said Len Santoro, the event’s organizer and member of the Middle Village Relay for Life. “We will have a set number of hot dogs, probably 10, and they we will see who can eat them the fastest.”

Each participant will compete separately, and each hot dog must be fully consumed to count. The times will be kept secret until all participants have competed.

So far the fundraiser has five contestants, but they are looking for more.

All amateur eaters are eligible to participate in the contest. There is a $15 entrance fee, and the fastest eater will win half of the money raised during the event.

However, if the winning participant is part of a Relay for Life team, their winnings will go toward their team’s total funds. The other half of the money raised will go toward the Middle Village Relay for Life organization, Santoro said.

There will also be a number of raffles and door prizes to be won including a basket donated by Pat’s Sports Bar, a cooler for sporting events, Relay for Life goodies, and a 50/50.

For those who want to enjoy some hot dogs, but don’t want to stuff their faces, Pat’s Sports Bar will be selling hot dogs, all of which were donated by a Middle Village Relay for Life member.

All money raised through the raffles, door prize contests, hot dog eating contest, and hot dog sales will go toward the final prize pool.

Anyone interested in participating in the hot dog eating contest can reach out to the Middle Village Relay for Life.

The Middle Village Relay for Life will be holding their annual relay event on Saturday, June 24, at 3 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Sunday, June 25, at Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village. Anyone who wants to be a part of the Middle Village Relay for Life can contact Carol Palacio at info-carol.palacio[@]cancer.org.

AND SOMEONE EXPLAIN HOW PROPERTY VALUES GO UP WITH SUPPORTIVE HOUSING UNITS IN A COMMUNITY

Well, that is what the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy states with their study, yet, no detail on just how the values go up. If that is the case,  Mr. Mayor, have some placed on your block next to your home that you charge $4500 a month to rent, when you moved to Gracie Mansion (http://www.politico.com/states/new-york/city-hall/story/2017/04/de-blasio-increased-his-own-rents-while-calling-for-others-to-freeze-theirs-new-figures-show-111272). Ironic the Mayor ask others to place a freeze on rents, but yet, does not take his own advice on his various properties that he owns. Mr. Tale of Two Cites in full bloom.

Like you should trust an organization that has Real Estate in the name of it.

Problematic El Camino homeless shelter in Downtown Jamaica

The NYS Assembly and Senate voted to release $1 billion to build 6,000 units of supportive housing over the next five years.

The State Legislature took a major step toward ending one of the worst homelessness crises the state has ever seen last week in approving the release of $1 billion to create the first 6,000 units of supportive housing over the next five years — which could benefit many Queens communities earmarked for homeless shelters.

These units will be part of a larger promise by Governor Andrew Cuomo to build 20,000 supportive units over the next 15 years.

“Supportive housing is vital for combating chronic homelessness and the factors that keep thousands of New Yorkers without a home,” said Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi, who chairs the Social Services Committee. “It is the logical solution to homelessness — supportive housing provides stable homes and support services to those in need. It will save taxpayer dollars as it is far more cost-effective than relying on homeless shelters and, most importantly, it works. This is a monumental step in the fight to end the homelessness crisis in New York state, and we will all benefit.”

Through supportive housing, tenants receive not only affordable apartments, but on-site access to the services they need to remain healthy and in their apartments. Over the years, the program has been especially helpful for those living with disabilities and chronic health conditions, as well as teens being aged out of foster care, and people leaving shelters, psychiatric facilities and addiction treatment programs.

The concept of supportive housing was introduced in the 1980s as a way to combat homelessness, and the program has seen great results.

According to a press release from Hevesi, during the first five years of the last supportive housing agreement, the number of chronic homeless adults dropped by 47 percent, with more than 86 percent of New York/New York III tenants remaining stably housed after one year.

Not only is supportive housing effective at curbing homelessness, it is much more cost effective than homeless shelters or warehousing the homeless in inadequate hotel rooms.

For those worrying that supportive housing will have a negative impact on their community and property values, studies have shown that the opposite is true. Supportive housing has been shown to increase property values neighborhoods after opening, since the units often times blend into the surrounding community.

According to a 2008 study by the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy, five years after supportive housing is built the properties closest to supportive housing had increased in value and experienced strong growth in the following years. Additionally, real estate values increased in neighborhoods with supportive housing more than those for comparable properties located further from supportive housing units in both high- and low-density neighborhoods.

With Mayor Bill de Blasio announcing that communities across the five boroughs will be seeing an increase in the number of homeless shelters through his “Turning the Tide on Homelessness in New York City” plan — specifically targeting communities with little to no homeless shelters, like the Community Board 5 area — maybe supportive housing could be a better answer.

Robert Holden, president of the Juniper Park Civic Association (JPCA) and member of the Maspeth/Middle Village Task Force that went head-to-head with de Blasio last year over the potential conversion of a Holiday Inn Express in Maspeth into a homeless shelter, is agreeable with the governor’s plan, but is taking it with a grain of salt.

“That is certainly a much better option to give people homes or apartments rather than hotel rooms. I just wish the governor came out with this plan a lot earlier, it could have curtailed the homeless crisis,” Holden told QNS in a phone interview on Monday. “I just hope that these initiatives come to fruition because a lot of times they announce things during election years and they don’t follow through. You have to be skeptical of any government program announced during an election year.”

If this supportive housing plan does go through, Holden would be interested to see if the buildings actually fit in with the neighborhoods of where they are placed.

“It all depends on the implementation,” he added. “If these are going to be giant complexes with thousands of people, there might be problems with surrounding neighborhoods. If you build smaller facilities, that would make more sense. I’ll support the governor’s proposal if it is a smaller facility.”
