A recent survey of residents in the Jamaica area concludes that over half (57.4%) think their community SUCKS, despite all the bullshit coming from elected hacks like Queens BP Melinda Katz, Congressman Greg Meeks, Senator Leroy Comrie, GJDC President Hope Knight and other master bullshitters.
Residents site crime and problems with local streets, but there are many more issues of why that large percentage think JAMAICA SUCKS. It is low-class ghetto from the retail to the food choices, it is FILTHY with tons of illegal garbage dumping and litter all over the damn place, homeless shelters are being dumped by the dozens while group homes are being put in (like the one with the hood rats who gang raped a mother of two) without anyone’s knowledge, the homeless population has SKYROCKETED in the past year alone in downtown Jamaica with this new hybrid combo of hotels/homeless shelters like the Comfort Inn on 162 St right in downtown Jamaica, auto body shops that have taken over sidewalks and streets with their junked and unlicensed vehicles, the parks like Rufus King Park and Major Mark Park are not only garbage dumps but have turned into outdoor homeless shelters as the homeless and drug addicts make homeless encampments out of them, a major polluting & poisonous waste dump, ROYAL WASTE, in the downtown area and near hundreds of families is not only foul smelling but the majority of diesel fuel polluting trucks that run through the downtown are from them, illegal parking of huge foul smelling waste trucks inside the LIRR overpass tunnels in the downtown area, shootings, stabbings, rapes, assaults, robberies, kidnapping & forced prostitution of underage black girls like what took place at Rev. Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence (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/) and every other ghetto nonsense and bullshit you can think of helps to make JAMAICA SUCK.
AND then we have some of the most corrupt and do nothing elected officials around. We have already had two come out of jail (Huntley, Scarborough), one still in jail (Smith) and another on corruption trial and more than likely will be going to jail (asshole Wills).
BUT the people have spoken elected officials and Ms. Hope Knight:
JAMAICA SUCKS MAJORLY like Linda Lovelace.
BUT on the other hand 42.6% are satisfied with Jamaica, so who are those idiots. Must be elected officials, propaganda puppets, the homeless, hood rats, low-class ghetto folks who don’t know better and the new batch of immigrants who considering where some of them come from think Jamaica is the French Riviera.
So Ms. Knight, I doubt this survey will be finding its way into any of Greater Jamaica Development Corporations promotional material.
Downtown Jamaica Comfort Inn. Worker inside told me that 3 floors are for hotel guests and three floors are for homeless. Nothing like being greeted at a hotel than by a half naked homeless man sitting in hot weather.
Damn, that white boy in the back is cutting up some good shit.
Bad Mexican Hombres drinking in public, white white boy in background, cuts up some drugs. A few blocks from where Mayor and crew were doing their bullshit publicity stunt.
Up and Coming Jamaica, a community in crisis.
The morning rush hour druggies
Ruben Wills District of prostitution, garbage and other ghetto messes. 157 and Tuskegee Airman Way
Homeless Drug Addicts in love.
These alcoholic bottles did not magically get place here, our diverse population put them there and I am sure then took plenty of pisses there as well.
Over a million dollars and you would think this is some little kid playing the slums of Calcutta.
The Rufus King Park Welcome Wagon.
Sutphin Blvd between Jamaica Ave and 90th Ave
Hala Live Slaughterhouse (92-56 165th St) right in the middle of downtown Jamaica and yes those are apartment going up across from it.
Downtown Jamaica, third world shithole. UNBELIEVABLE.
Royal Waste comprises the entire blue rectangle. As can be seen thousands of homes and a park are at risk.
168 pl at 90 ave in downtown Jamaica
Practice games for terrorist. The 170 LIRR Tunnel in Downtown Jamaica.
Zale Thompson, attacked officers with machete on Jamaica Ave in October of 2014
Totally Illegal blocking of sidewalk. Pretty Girl is one of many stores on Jamaica Ave doing this. Besides making it difficult to manuever, it is low-class ghetto/third world country EYESORE.
She certainly does not look like some starving young girl in Africa.
Is that Assembly Member Vivian Cook addressing her constituents.
And they are dumping 1+ million dollars in this park, really. Does that include the removal of the bottom of the barrel folks.
Jamaica Ave, although this looks even worse when I saw it the other day.
Is this an example of being on “the right track”.
Elderly man’s legs are crushed by dangerous tractor trailer truck in downtown Jamaica, Friday (7.8.6) due to chronic neglect by elected officials and city agencies.
From AM New York:
Only 42.6 percent of respondents from Community Board 12, which includes parts of Jamaica, Hollis and Springfield Gardens, were satisfied with their neighborhood. They cited problems with local streets and roads as well as crime. Only 45.5 percent said they felt safe walking in their neighborhood at night.
