PUBLIC SIDEWALKS ARE FOR WALKING, NOT HAVING PRIVATE PARTIES WITH LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE AND LOUD MUSIC GOING ON ALL DAY AND NIGHT

AND here is another Jamaica issue, that is totally illegal. The blocking of sidewalks to hold a party with food, tables, chair and loud music emanating from speakers. AND it is an issue near me that has been taking place for several years now and which is in eye distance from the 103rd precinct.

An apartment building at the SE corner of 169th Street and 90 Avenue has been having parties with large groups of people and loud music on various weekends during the summer on a public sidewalk on 90 Ave between 169 and 170 St. Not only is the sidewalk blocked by tables, chairs and people, but loud music plays for hours from the afternoon to late in the evening past 11pm and public drinking of alcohol. These people act as if the public sidewalk is part of their property as opposed to holding their summer party in a rental hall or getting a permit for a party in a public part.

Over the years several complaints filed to 311 and NYPD have resulted in NOTHING, and the previous weekend was no different, where the party started at 4pm and continued long past 11pm with loud music, getting louder as the evening progressed. The response I got on several of my filed complaints:

BUT during the entire time, not only did the music continue, it never shut off,  and the whole illegal obstruction of a public sidewalk continued.

As much as I appreciate the work that one of the busiest precinct does, the 103rd has in my opinion failed on this major quality of life issue that affects the entire neighborhood and sets a bad precedent for others to engage in the illegal blocking and obstructing of a public sidewalk for parties as well as a major noise issues caused by loud speakers on the sidewalk.

SO, with another hot weekend ahead of us, will myself and other neighbors be subjected to an illegal sidewalk party and loud music that goes on for hours. Because I am willing to file dozens of complaints  if need be, but the solution is NOT to allow this from the get go and when it does take place, to break it up completely.

I get that noise complaints are on the bottom of the list, especially in an area like Jamaica where shootings, robberies, assaults and other nonsense go on on the time, BUT this is more than just a noise issue, this is the illegal blocking and obstruction of a public sidewalk, which is not meant for people’s personal use such as a party. On top of that, with 7 hours of this going on and my first complaint was filed right at 4pm when these folks set it up, I think there was plenty of time to correct this situation, break up this party, shut down the music and disperse the people, especially since the 103rd precinct just sets across from this.

TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE. So here is a reminder with sidewalks.

NO where on this list are private parties on a sidewalk.

 

 

 

SOUTH JAMAICA’S FIRST NCO MEETING REVEALS PROSTITUTION, ILLEGAL AUTO SHOPS & ABANDONED VEHICLES – WELCOME TO SOUTH JAMAICA

The first NCO meeting in South Jamaica took place this recent Tuesday and residents brought up many quality of life issues including abandoned vehicles, unlicensed mechanics working on cars near people’s homes and prostitution which seems to be a big problem from 157th Street to Sutphin Blvd.

Resident Oyinade Ogunbanjo who lives at 153rd St at Tuskegee Airmen Way (formerly South Street) said “There is a guy that fixes car at the side of my house. There are three cars that have been parked there for the past two weeks. … They are occupying space that residents should have.”

Zaheer Hamid had issues with prostitution creeping up in the area. He tried to take his daughter out for ice cream one evening when he saw a call girl propositioning people for sex.The places for solicitations for sex were along 157th Street to Sutphin Boulevard, according to residents.

When I did a google search of that area, this is what popped up. HMMM, I don’ think this woman in red is waiting for a bus. It looks like we have the epitome  of South Jamaica in this photo, graffiti, vacant overgrown lot, abandon vehicle, garbage, some crappy auto/whatever place, a john and a lady of the afternoon. This photo says it all about Jamaica, especially South Jamaica.

Police hear Jamaica residents’ concerns

Neighborhood Community Officer Ryan Watson participates in the first NCO meeting with members of the public in Downtown Jamaica at Concerned Parents Day Care to discuss quality of life issues plaguing the area.

Officers of the 103rd Precinct held a neighborhood community meeting Tuesday on unlicensed mechanics, abandoned cars and prostitution.

In attendance at the meeting Concerned Parents Day Care, located at 143-04 on 101st Ave., was Community Board 12 Chairwoman Adrienne Adams.

 This was the first of what will be a series of quarterly meetings between officers and residents who live between 157th Street to the Van Wyck Expressway, and from 110th Avenue to Archer Avenue.

During the meeting, police and members of the public discussed how hard crime had gone down, but quality-of-life issues still plagued the region.

“This is a collaborative effort,” Officer Ian Johnson said. “You guys can work with us and you guys can work with each other to make where you live in a better place. We are going to listen to what you have to say.”

One of the major complaints for the area was about unlicensed mechanics taking up parking, forcing inhabitants who don’t have garages adjacent to their homes to walk long distances to find places for their cars.

“There is a guy that fixes car at the side of my house,” said Oyinade Ogunbanjo, who lives at 153rd Street at Tuskegee Airmen Way. “There are three cars that have been parked there for the past two weeks. … They are occupying space that residents should have.”

According to Ogunbanjo, the cars either had out-of-state license plates or no license plates at all, and the ones that were not repaired were so filthy that they attracted raccoons and stray cats.

“Illegal parking is a major problem that we have in this area,” Johnson said. “They shouldn’t be there for an excess of seven days, and when it hits that seven-day mark, it is considered to be abandoned.”

 The officers asked the residents to get in touch with the precinct and provide the location of the vehicle, the make and model of the car.

“They are getting out of hand,” Johnson said. “We need your help to pinpoint them.”

The officers also explained that they could only do so much because they have three towing companies and the parking lots they have for towed cars sometimes reach full capacity. Some of the cars, however, will be taken by the Department of Sanitation if they are considered to have no value and classified as scrap metal. The plus side is that residents no longer have to wait for 311 to respond.

Zaheer Hamid had issues with prostitution creeping up in the area. He tried to take his daughter out for ice cream one evening when he saw a call girl propositioning people for sex.The places for solicitations for sex were along 157th Street to Sutphin Boulevard, according to residents.

“We are going to do another prostitution operation,” Alexander said. “We will have an officer that is undercover calling it out [signaling the johns and prostitute­s].”

There was not a definite date given out for the operation, but “it will be at the end of June,” according to Officer Ryan Watson.

Once the meeting concluded, the officers and the residents exchanged contact information and chatted.

Close call for man who tried to strangle himself with phone cord in Queens precinct

A cop monitoring the call ran into the holding cell and ripped the cord from Hodges neck.

A man arrested on suspicion of menacing a woman in Queens tried to turn his one phone call into his last when he wrapped the cord around his neck and tried to strangle himself, police sources said Tuesday.

Antoine Hodges, 22, was in a holding pen at the 103rd Precinct stationhouse in Jamaica at about 2 p.m. Monday when he asked for his one phone call — he wanted to talk to his mother.

Cops rang his mother and gave him the handset, the cord stretching to a phone on the wall, authorities said.

In the middle of the conversation with his mom, Hodges ripped the cord from the phone and wrapped it around his neck.

A cop monitoring the call ran into the holding cell and ripped the cord from Hodges neck.

Medics took him to Queens General Hospital for a psychological exam.

Hodges was accused of pulling what appeared to be a gun on a 19-year-old woman on Pine Grove St. near Shore Ave. on Sunday, officials said.

He didn’t have a weapon on him when police took him into custody Monday, authorities said.

Woman robs Queens bodega at gunpoint, takes off with $400 and cigarettes

A woman robbed the 24-Hour Minimart on Lefferts Blvd. near 115th Ave. in South Ozone Park early Tuesday at gunpoint

A pistol-packing, bike-riding woman raided a Queens bodega early Tuesday, making off with $400 and a pack of cigarettes, authorities said.

The woman walked into the 24-Hour Minimart on Lefferts Blvd. near 115th Ave. in South Ozone Park about 1 a.m. and pulled a gun on a worker inside.

“Hurry up and give me all the money!” the gun-toting suspect screamed as she ordered the employee to empty the register.

She took the cash and the smokes and was last seen pedaling away from the store on a bicycle.

She was wearing a gray hoodie and black sneakers, according to police, who continue to investigate.

Gangster Vincent Asaro admits he ordered man’s vehicle torched, John Gotti’s grandson cops to driving getaway car

Vincent Asaro — who beat 2015 charges in the infamous $6 million Lufthansa robbery at Kennedy Airport — said he didn’t know and never met the person responsible for the road rage revenge. (Joe Marino/New York Daily News)

If he ends up dying behind bars, Bonanno family oldfella Vincent Asaro won’t take anybody down with him.

Mob veteran Asaro, 82, informed a federal judge that he was no rat before she accepted his guilty plea Tuesday for ordering the April 2012 road rage torching of a Queens man’s car.

“I would never cooperate . . . I would never cooperate against anyone,” the capo declared during a Brooklyn Federal Court hearing.

Asaro was the first defendant of the day before late Gambino boss John Gotti’s 23-year-old grandson admitted driving the getaway car from the arson blaze ordered by the mob vet.

The octogenarian gangster, his arms folded across his chest, insisted he never knew or met the person who actually set the fire.

Asaro acknowledged only making a phone call to order up the attack.

Asaro acknowledged calling some mob associates to set the car ablaze after its driver cut the Bonnano family capo off in Howard Beach.

“Another person burned a car at my request,” Asaro declared during his appearance. “I made arrangements with this person to take care of it, and it was done.”

Depending on his sentence, Asaro — once charged as part of the robbery gang featured in Martin Scorsese’s “Goodfellas” — may already have breathed his last as a free man.

Both Asaro, held without bail, and the Gotti grandson faced up to 20 years in prison, but defense lawyers were hopeful for lesser terms at their Oct. 24 sentencing.

A long term would almost insure that Asaro dies behind bars.

“We’re hoping for a fair and just sentence that not only takes into account his crimes committed, but also factors in his age and health,” said Asaro defense lawyer Elizabeth Macedonio.

John Gotti is already serving a term of eight years for his conviction for running a $1.6 million oxycodone ring in his Howard Beach neighborhood.

(Todd Maisel/New York Daily News)

Asaro beat charges in 2015 for the infamous $6 million Lufthansa heist at Kennedy Airport. The 1978 heist became a centerpiece of the Scorsese mob classic.

The young Gotti — with his dad Peter in the courtroom — confessed his role in the arson. Gotti is already serving a term of eight years for his conviction for running a $1.6 million oxycodone ring in his Howard Beach neighborhood.

“I agreed with others to set fire to a vehicle in Broad Channel, Queens,” said Gotti, wearing a navy blue prison outfit. “My role was to drive the getaway car.”

Asaro made it clear that his long-ago oath of omerta remained in effect when asked by Federal Judge Allyne Ross if he wanted to change lawyers.

Macedonio represents Asaro’s nephew in a separate case, raising conflict-of-interest issues. Ross said the dual representation could prevent Asaro from cutting a deal to testify against his nephew.

Asaro, after a four-minute meeting with the lawyer, said he both planned to keep her around and his mouth shut.

 

 

MORE IDIOTIC NOISE COMPLAINT RESPONSE FROM NYPD AND 311

More loud music playing on the sidewalk Sunday night at the same spot as on Saturday night on 90 Ave & 169 St between 169 St & 170 St, closer to 169 St on the South Side of Street near small apartment building. File a 311 noise complaint and this.

NOW, when I filed the complaint for the location, I put the following, very clear and I finally get this.

REALLY, a very detail location and right across from the 103rd and you tell me:

Your Service Request was closed.The Police Department reviewed your complaint and provided additional information below.

not enough information on location of noise

REALLY, what did you need me to do, stand right there where the music was coming from holding an American flag, shooting off fireworks and yelling over the music, RIGHT HERE OFFICERS.

GO FIGURE and this is why so many people get pissed off in the city, the INEPITUDE and blatant lack of caring. I really like the 103rd precinct, one of the hardest working precincts. And I know they are understaffed, but REALLY folks.

 

WHY NOISE COMPLAINTS LIKE OUTDOOR LOUD MUSIC/PARTIES NEVER GET FIXED – THE CITY DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT LIKE MOST QUALITY OF LIFE ISSUES IN CERTAIN COMMUNITIES LIKE JAMAICA

Imagine if you can in Forest Hills, a large group of people (let’s say about 20+) come out of their apartments with chairs, all kinds of food, music speakers and then just take over the public sidewalk near the apartment building and play loud music for hours in the evening. IMAGINE.  Imagine, first if that would ever take place, but then imagine if it would, just exactly how long that would be allowed to continue.

NOW, no imagining, just reality. Jamaica, typical crappy low-class apartment building at 169 St and 90 Ave. Same scenario (but not just one time, but pretty much summer weekends). AND keep in mind that this place is just one block away from the 103rd precinct, which you can see from this spot. SO what do you think the outcome would be on this scenario. IF you guessed NOTHING, you win.

Let’s break this down.

Large group of people, set up their chairs, food, drink and music speakers, NOT inside their apartment, not outside on their front or back lawn (there are none), BUT out on the public sidewalk on 90 Ave near their apartment building (where there are other homes, other apartment buildings) at 6:00pm on Saturday (6.24.17) and the music starts LOUDLY. Since 311 noise complaints go to the bottom of the list, if they ever get any attention within a reasonable time frame, a complaint is filed right at 6:00pm, knowing this music will blast late into the evening and being a Saturday, it will take NYPD some time to get there, since of all the other nonsense in the Jamaica community, so I get a head start.

Music of course continues, but it is still early, so okay. BUT file another complaint, so maybe by 8pm, they will check it out.

Then

Then, of course after the music finally ends over FIVE hours later at around 11:15pm, this

It is just unacceptable (and illegal) for people to take over a public sidewalk, hold a party and worse, blast music in a crowded neighborhood, so that everyone else can be disturbed from 6pm to 11:15pm. I would think that since this was not inside someone’s apartment or even in their back yard, BUT out on a public sidewalk, this would be take care of, but not the case. AND this is not an isolated case at this location, this has been something that has taken place for years at this location on summer weekends, where I have filed 311 complaints over and over. I guess Queens Borough President Melinda Katz does not have to deal with this on her block or near her, SO WHY should people in this community have to deal with this SHIT. Katz and her family and neighbors don’t have to tolerate this crap, why should we.

SHOOTING BY TYPICAL GHETTO HOOD RAT AT GHETTO HOLLIS SOCIAL CLUB OPERATING AN ILLEGAL GAMBLING OPERATION – WHAT ELSE IS NEW IN THIS SHITTY GHETTO

Let’s just write off all of SE Queens and Jamaica as total GHETTO CRAP. For every bit of good (which is little) there are tons of crap, for every step forward in the right direction, there are two to three steps backwards. AND it is ghetto crap because of the tons of hood rats like the gun carrying punk below, because this is how hood rats prove they are men, but in the end, they are not men at all, just punks who have no idea what being a man is.

It is just total crap, let’s face it. And all the development going on is just putting pretty wrapping paper on a big pile of fucking shit surrounded by dangling hood rats.

BUT is anyone really surprised anymore with all this ghetto shit.

The suspect in a June 10 shooting at a Hollis social club can be seen at right firing a shot at the victim.

Police need the public’s help in finding the suspect who shot a 29-year-old man three times during an argument at a Hollis social club earlier this month.

The NYPD released on Tuesday morning video footage of the perpetrator involved in the assault that took place at 12:15 a.m. on June 10 inside the club located on Jamaica Avenue between 195th Place and 196th Street.

 The security camera footage video shows the gunman — described as a black male standing 5 foot 8 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds with brown eyes and short black hair while wearing a red t-shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers — involved in a violent tussle with the 29-year-old man near a game table.

According to NBC New York, the two men got into the altercation over money at the club, which was reportedly operating an illegal gambling operation.

As the video shows, the suspect pulled out a silver handgun just before the victim began pushing him toward a wall. The gunman fired a shot at the man’s face, then another at his at his chest before the victim lost his footing and fell to the floor. The victim managed to get up and move away from the gunman as he headed toward a door.

After firing the shots, police said, the perpetrator fled the scene on foot southbound along 196th Street.

Officers from the 103rd Precinct and EMS units responded to the scene. The victim was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where he is listed in stable condition.

Anyone with information regarding the shooting or the suspect’s whereabouts is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.

TEEN HOOD RATS IN TRAINING AS THEY ROB YOUNGER TEENS ON HILLSIDE AVENUE FOR PHONES BRANDISHING KNIVES IN BROAD DAYLIGHT

WAIT, what did our fake progressive liberal bullshit Mayor say, that crime is down. Maybe in his hood of Park Slope, but not here in Jamaica or the SE Queens, the wild wild west of Queens.

Add to another reason how cell phones are bad for you.

Teens Are Robbing Peers for Cellphones on Hillside Avenue, Police Say

By Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska | June 14, 2017 10:17pm

 A group of teens robbed eight other teens of their cellphones in broad daylight on Hillside Avenue in Jamaica over the past three weeks, police officials said.

QUEENS — A group of teens robbed eight other teens of their cellphones in broad daylight on Hillside Avenue in Jamaica over the past three weeks, police officials said.

The first incident took place on May 27, according to Captain John Ganley, executive officer for the 103rd Precinct, who discussed the incidents at a community council meeting Tuesday night.

Since then, the robbers stole cellphones from seven more teens on Hillside Avenue, between 143rd and 171st streets.

Each time, one or two suspects who were approximately 16 to 17 years old approached their victims who were about 13 to 16 years old and asked, “Do you have the time?” according to police officials.

In two cases, they also pulled out a knife, authorities said.

The robbers would then snatch the victims’ cellphones before fleeing on foot.

Each of the incidents took place early in the afternoon, shortly after dismissal time, as the victims were on their way home from school, said Ganley, noting that additional patrols have been monitoring the area in recent days.

There are several schools along that portion of Hillside Avenue, including Hillcrest High School, Hillside Arts and Letters Academy and P.S. 95.
