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.
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.
