ANOTHER USELESS JAMAICA DOT TRANSIT TOWNHALL MEETING GOING OVER THE SAME OLD SHIT WITH SAME OLD NOTHING RESULTS AND HOSTED BY LOCAL USELESS HACKS LIKE COMRIE & MILLER

Really, another bullshit DOT meeting to go over the same old bullshit from many times before that never gets properly addressed and nothing ever gets done in this community. Why keep having shit like this where nothing EVER gets accomplished. All that is accomplished is wasting the time of hard-working busy people.

SO tell the clowns like Comrie and Miller how man damn times are they going to have the same damn meetings, when everyone knows the damn problems from the get go and NOBODY does anything to correct then, even simple things like stopping illegal truck driving on residential streets, like this fucking truck driving ILLEGALLY on a residential street as I am typing this.
Just another useless meeting and waste of time for hard working people to take time out of their busy schedules to hear the same shit over and over, especially from the clowns like Comrie and Miller. AND ask Comrie in all his years in office, to name 5 actual things he has done to improve the community and not made up things like he uses for election time, like he brought thousands of jobs to Jamaica, which he never did nor has the power to do.
Everyone is being completely bamboozled and having smoke blown up in their  ass in this community, while the community is actually worse than a year ago, despite this so-called “development”, which you know damn well, that the majority of all these hotels being built will become homeless shelters. I mean notice how in the last 6 months that Rufus King Park has gotten way worse with the homeless folks who have made encampments all over that park (and Major Mark Park) including the pavilion.  What was the purpose of dumping $2.2 million dollars into this park if it was going to be turned into an outdoor homeless shelter.

Rufus King Park

Just like what is the purpose of having the same old bullshit meeting where NOTHING gets accomplished, to make us think you clowns are actually doing something.
As one person stated:
“I agree, I’ve made community board meetings, union meetings, etc. called 311, signed petitions. I called offices and still no change. My street looks like an obstacle course of how not to hit a pothole?  I work every day come home from work ,clean up the trash in front of my house and my elderly neighbors home as well.  If something falls from the cans,  sanitation doesn’t even pick it up and throw it in the truck. “
Comrie, Miller and Trottenberg, enough with the blowing smoke up our asses. Our asses are filled to the max just like Rufus King Park is filled to the max with homeless and garbage. AND Comrie and Miller want re-elected. FOR FUCKING WHAT?
“Spread the word” as Comrie says in his bullshit email. SURE, you are all fucking hacks and shit in the community is not staying the same, SHIT HAS GOTTEN WORSE. SPREAD THAT.
This was something that clown, deBlasio should have been talking about in Jamaica last week on his bullshit clown circus tour at Sutphin & Jamaica, instead of talking about wasting $20,000 or whatever the hell it was to spruce up the front of a typical crap store on Sutphin, like a 99 cent store. REAL good use of money. A 99 cent store, spruced up or not is still a ghetto ass 99 cent store.

Daneek Miller, are hosting an important town hall on transportation tomorrow, Thursday, July 27th at 6:30 pm  at the Robert Ross-Johnson Family Life Center, 172-17 Linden Blvd., Jamaica, NY 11434. NYC Department of Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg will be on hand with her staff to answer questions and address concerns of Queens residents. 

Please spread the word. We hope to see you there.

Yours in service,

SNEAK PREVIEW: MAYOR BIG SHOW AND ENTOURAGE MAKE VISIT TO THE BUSINESS DISTRICT OF DOWNTOWN JAMAICA

AND take a wild guess the person whose is speaking to GJDC President Hope Knight.

“Christ, can’t this guy get anywhere on time. And they talk about CP Time.”

Katz & Miller’s lame attempt to do a “Jamaica Abbey Road”

So it is Day two of Mayor Big Show’s traveling circus this week in Queens with his “City Hall in Your Borough” Cavalcade and your the so-called “Tale of Two Cities” Mayor made a stop at 6:30pm (well, deBlasio time, which meant he was late of course) in downtown Jamaica at the corner of Sutphin Blvd and Jamaica Queens with the usual suspects like GJDC President Hope Knight, Madame Bullshit Queen BP Melinda Katz & her deputy, the always sexy Melba Miller and escorting the Mayor around the area, Jamaica’s own Heckel & Jeckel, Senator Comrie and Councilman I. Daneek Miller.

I did not know of this Jamaica tour till the last minute, so I got home, grabbed a bite and headed out on my bike. As I got there, some of the usual suspects were there, but not the Mayor. As soon as I pulled up  to the crowd, I yelled out, “I hope the Mayor is going to see the all the crap in Jamaica and just not a few of the “pretty spots”. Immediately a tall gentlemen in a nice suit approached me and introduced himself as Greg Bishop, Commissioner of NYC Department of Small Businesses Service and I let him have it about Jamaica and that Comrie and I. Daneek Miller certainly are not going to show the Mayor or tell him about the “Jamaica Hot Spots” and he said that the Mayor is aware. AND then I said is he aware of Merrick Blvd and all the auto body shops that have made a mess of the sidewalks and streets with their junked and unlicensed vehicles and he told me he was not aware of that and to send him photos after I told him I have photos and a blog. He said they will have a talk with those shop.

This bus had to move into another lane due to auto body shop blocking the lane.

Well, you know I am going to follow up on this. Anyway, he said the purpose of this appearance by Mayor Big Show, was the seeing some of the small businesses in the area.

Well, eventually Mayor Big Show comes and yammers about some shit that I could not hear, along with Katz and some others saying more shit that I could not hear, but there will be plenty of coverage from the reporters that were there to hear what he and company had to say about ghetto Jamaica. After awhile I left, because if I want to see and hear a bunch of shit, I will just cruise over to the $2.2 million dollar homeless shelter and garbage dump, known as Rufus King Park.

AND speaking of ghetto Jamaica and Mayor “Tale of Two Cities”, here is the perfect example of that. While Mayor Big Show and the bullshit elected officials were spilling bile all over the streets of Sutphin, a few blocks over at Rufus King Park, showed the usual garbage, homeless at the Pavillion with drinking by the Mexican crew, while a white boy in back of them seemed to be cutting up some good drugs to snort.

Damn, that white boy in the back is cutting up some good shit.

“Welcome to vibrant downtown Jamaica and enjoy your stay at the Comfort Inn. ………………………Do you have a dollar?”

A few blocks over at 89-34 162nd St, right in Downtown Jamaica, is the Comfort Inn, that was put up about 2 years ago, not quite sure of the date. Well, one look at the “doorman” and I contacted the hotel to find out that 3 floors are for hotel guest and 3 floors are for the homeless, which I thought so in the past because some of the “folks” I saw going in. So if you are wondering why there is such an increase in the homeless in the downtown area, between all the homeless shelters, group homes, plus drug clinics, we have this new hybrid of Hotel/Homeless Shelter and nothing screams out “COME STAY WITH US” like a half naked homeless man in some kind of wheel chair thing hanging out in front of it. SO Ms. Knight of the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation, did you know that one of your downtown hotels is half a homeless shelter. Somehow I don’t think this business will be in the tour of Mayor Big Show nor in one of GJDC’s promotional material, “THE JAMAICA COMFORT INN – EXPERIENCE THE REAL JAMAICA”.

AND THIS IS HOW OUR ASSHOLE ELECTED OFFICIALS WASTE OUR TAXPAYER’S DOLLARS AND THEIR TIME – ON COMPLETE & UTTER BULLSHIT

Michael Gianaris (l.) joined Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer (second from r.) and Public Advocate Letitia James (r.) for a commemoration of Prodigy, one of the two members of Queens-based hip hop group Mobb Deep, at Queensbridge Houses on July 8. The rapper died in late June 20. Photo courtesy of Jimmy Van Bramer

Councilman I. Daneek Miller (third from l.) dropped by a fundraising event for Councilman Donovan Richards (second from l.) on July 11. Photo courtesy of Khaair J. Morrison

Not one of these fucking clowns above, including BLACK FEMALE Public Advocate, Letitia James, made a public statement about a  15 year old black girl who was kidnapped and pimped out for FOUR MONTHS in Rev. Floyd Flake’s Greater Allen Senior Residence on Merrick Blvd, but was able to take time out for a commemoration of rapper Prodigy, who died in June.

Quality of life in Jamaica is AWFUL. Major garbage & litter everywhere including Major Mark Park and Rufus King Park, where you could have taken that $2.2 million dollars and just thrown it up in the air.

The increase of crazy homeless wandering all over Jamaica and making encampments in our local parks has going through the roof.

Illegal truck driving on residential streets, much of it caused by that poisnous, polluting Royal Waste, still continues putting many people at risk for various health issues.

Shootings and killings still continue as July 4th proved with a triple shooting at a Jamaica house party, resulting in two deaths, including a mother of two.

RAPE is increasing  in this  community as the savage brutal gang rape of a mother of two on Wednesday proves.

Up and Coming Jamaica, a community in crisis.

Plus tons of other bullshit, but sure do these fucking idiotic photo-ops, like that 100 year old woman even knows who the fuck Comrie is or more importantly does not fucking care. It looks like she is saying, “GIVE ME BACK MY BINGO CARD YOU FAT FUCK & DID YOU EAT ALL THE DAMN DONUTS, I WANTED ONE FOR MY TV SHOW.

HORRIBLE CONDITIONS AT RUFUS KING PARK – SO WHERE IS GJDC PRESIDENT HOPE KNIGHT & JAMAICA BID EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR RHONDA BINDA ON THIS ISSUE, BECAUSE WE KNOW WE WILL NOT HEAR FROM OUR LOUSY LOCAL ELECTED OFFICIALS ON THIS

$2.2 million dollars dumped into Rufus King Park for it to look some ghetto third world dump courtesy of our vibrant, diverse, homeless, drug addict and ghetto slobs whom our elected officials like Queens BP Katz, Councilman Miller & Lancman, Assembly Member Hyndman and Senator Comrie will never call out on their bullshit especially during election time, but none of them would ever comment on the condition of Rufus King Park period. OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND

But here at CLEANUP JAMAICA QUEENS, we deal in REALITY, TRUTH, FACTS, PHOTOS, EVIDENCE.

But I would at least expect some vocals from non-elected officials like Greater Development President Hope Knight and her crew there or Rhonda Binda, Executive Director of Jamaica BID, since these groups are responsible for the betterment of Jamaica and are actually trying very hard, but is such an uphill battle since probably at least 50% of the Jamaica population are low-class ghetto slobs and the continuous dumping of homeless shelters and that element into the downtown area (notice how both Rufus King Park & Major Mark Park are becoming outdoor homeless shelters). AND what about so-called other people who call themselves “community activists” or “community advocates”.  I hear some folks from Jamaica say that term to describe themselves, yet NEVER hear them on the quality of life issues except the one true community activist, Pamela Hazel.

NEWSFLASH: If all the Jamaica development happening is just going to bring in this same element, there is no HOPE (no pun intended) for the future of Jamaica. AND let’s be real and honest, just like the Harlem renaissance, if you can not attract middle to upper middle class white people, game over. PLUS, you certainly are not going to attract quality families with school age kids, since the Jamaica area schools are some of the worst in the borough and city, with low graduation rates, high percentage of students not able to speak proper English and  many graduating with 5th grade reading skills. You really want to be considered a “Diverse” community, bring in or at least attract the white, because the black & brown certainly have not been doing any kind of bang up job at all in helping the improvement of the community.

So below is the wonderful Rufus King Park in all its glory. With the exception of St. Albans Park, the other parks rank as pretty shitty due to litter/garbage in this order of SHIT:

  1. Major Mark Park
  2. Rufus King Park
  3. Roy Wilkins Park
  4. Baisley Pond Park

So try using Rufus King Park as a selling point to live here in downtown Jamaica and feel free to use the below photos for your brochures.

Photos from SE Queens resident, The Philster, who has provide plenty of trashy, ghetto nonsense, third world crap photo for this blog.

JAMAICA COMMUNITY ACTIVIST PAMELA HAZEL REPORTS ON ANOTHER HALF ASS JOB TO CLEAN UP BUSHWALK

Ah, clean up Jamaica Style, which means totally half ass as Ms. Hazel reports on Jamaica’s famous tourist attraction, BUSHWALK.

———————————————

From Pamela Hazel, Jamaica resident & community activist:

Over the weekend, the corner of 107th. Avenue & 171st. Place was cleaned. But the garbage was placed elsewhere. A neighbour contacted me and he was furious. He said that he was watching outside from his home; when two black men arrived at the site, that had a discarded mattress surrounded by bush. Armed with machetes, the men began chopping down the bush and filled a few garbage bags.

 

Mr. D. said, that he stared in disbelief what ensued next. The two men hoisted the filthy mattress and tossed it over the wooden fence adjacent to the sidewalk. Then, one by one they dragged the large, bags and tossed them over the fence as well.

 

I asked Mr. D, “why didn’t you call out to them.” He retorted, “mam, I will not confront two strong, black men; especially when they are holding sharp weapons.”

 

Several neighbours told me that their nostrils urged them to peek through the fence. Animals are living under the mattress and the odor is permeating.

 

Photos were taken yesterday,(7/9/17). Location, 107th. Avenue &. 171 Place. (Bushwalk/sidewalk) Outside the fence.

 

Inside the fence.

Inside the fence.

Five weeks ago.

Borough President, Katz and Councilman Miller where do you stand on resolving this problem once and for all? Katz has created an atmosphere; where some people believe it is ok for Jamaica Queens to remain unattractive and stink.

Ms. Boranian, you are in charge of constituents services in Katz’s office. You All are responsible for this mess. Weeks ago I reported the growing bush, but none of you responded. You all waited until the bush, garbage and yes, the filthy mattress engulfed the side walk.

Please tell these two menacing butchers, to return to the scene of their quality of life crime. They have to retrieve the filthy mattress and garbage. It is a violation to dispose of garbage improperly.

By the way, the butchers left the bush about 12 inches high. Please have them cut the bush properly. They should use a lawn mower. Voters in Jamaica Queens deserve the same quality of services.

 

RIKERS ISLAND SHOULD NOT BE CLOSED: YET ANOTHER REASON NOT TO PUT DUMBLASIO INTO OFFICE FOR A 2ND TURN & HOW WILL YOUR COUNCIL-MEMBER VOTE ON THIS

Just when you think that Mayor Dumbo cannot outdo his own stupidity, he hits his stride all over again.

You have a jail in an isolated area, where damn jails should be. Just fix the fucking thing up and fix the fucking system as opposed to putting jails in already completely over-developed and over-crowded boroughs (BUT Manhattan will NOT get a prison if this shit goes through). Christ, the inmates are in Rikers and they are running the damn government.

What a major fucking mess this shitty city is. People talk about idiot Trump (which he is), well we have our own progressive version of Trump. DeTrumpio.

Rikers Island DOES NOT NEED shuttered so that the criminals, the mentally ill, the violent, the highly dangerous can be placed in the boroughs and you can bet your life on it, that if this happens, these smaller prisons will be placed in communities of color, just like waste stations are dumped there, homeless shelters by the dozen are dumped there and drug clinics as well.

So folks in Jamaica and in SE Queens, time to ask your city council member how they will vote on this. People like I. Daneek Miller, Donovan Richards and Ruben Wills, who will sell his grandmothers pussy in a flash. Because you know damn well if this bullshit passes, it will becoming to your HOOD, not Melinda Katz’s hood or Melissa Mark-Viverito’s hood or not at all in Manhattan.

AND Jamaica folks, that majorly corrupt Congressman Gregory Meeks endorsed deBlasio. Say HELLO to the JAMAICA/SE QUEENS PRISON.

Some excellent comments on this issue over in Queens Crap:

Anonymous said…

If anyone was still supporting this mayor, this is (yet another) reason to vote him out in November. At his point, anybody would be better. If you look at the rikers plan on the new city website, they mention that almost 40% of the people in rikers have some kind of mental illness. Those people need treatment. But where is the discussion of closing rikers and building mental facilities? There is none! Close rikers, let the mentally ill wander the streets and the others can be spread throughout the boroughs. This benefits no one. Friday, June 23, 2017

Like the scoundrels at REBNY might say, it’s all about location location location. (location cubed)

OK, There will be two way west in Staten Island near South Jersey. I guess that was the real reason De Faustio went there first to scarf canolis with Oddo.

There is one that looks like the border of Brooklyn and Queens near Ozone Park and East New York like where the low level and project housing are by Linden Blvd. Wanna bet a bulk of the shelters are going to be built there too. This is where the city is going to thrust the homeless and next to be homeless to after East New York’s government sanctioned gentrification(yes, I’m being redundant for effect).

No jails for Manhattan, shocker there. And yet again the needs of the tourists outweigh the needs and security of the native citizenry, the people who pay to live here full time. I tie this to De Faustio’s earlier claim that people out of town know what’s best for the city than his constituency does.

Of course for this to become a horrible reality, crime has to go down enough to ensure it’s transformation, and I don’t see that happening (new bad days, shameless plug)in the near or way ahead future and see it exploding in the next few hot months of a very suffering, humid, oppressing summer. Especially oppressing, considering the stunt De Faustio and councilwoman Chen pulled at the mayor’s bogus town hall on the L.E.S. and Chinatown. Cellphone robberies, shootings, stabbings, slashing and of course sexual deviancy have seen an dramatic uptick in the past few months.

And the widening economic disparity and people being displaced from their apts from gentrification is going to produce more bitter and frustrated people, and will lead to more gangs.

The gentrification industrial complex has been gifted with generous rezoning and upzoning that has upended and changed/ruined the boroughs with their blade runner towers and fabricated market rates enabled by this corrupt mayor, but this time he and they will fail trying with this demented sociology project.

And damn right I don’t want this in my backyard assholes. Or anyone other sane person’s backyard.

resist. peace. Friday, June 23, 2017

ELECTION TIME: DUMP deBlasio and ALL incumbents in Jamaica/SE Queens. Make a statement or continue being idiotic sheeple.

Rikers Island Closure Depends on City Council NIMBYs, Mayor Says

By Gwynne Hogan | June 22, 2017 3:32pm
 Bill de Blasio called on city council members to support new jails in their districts.

DNAinfo/Theodore Parisienne

NEW YORK CITY — A plan to close Rikers Island unveiled Thursday won’t happen without the support of local city council members willing to clear the way for local jails in their districts, the mayor said on WNYC’s Brian Lehrer’s show.

The 85-year-old jail has been plagued by concerns for inmate mistreatment and deaths, security issues and mismanagement, won’t close without new satellite jails, Mayor Bill de Blasio, said Thursday morning.

While de Blasio’s ten-year-plan included a combination of criminal justice reforms to drive down the city’s inmate population by making it easier to pay bail, investing more in mental health programs and decreasing crime rates, details of the satellite jails are conspicuously absent.

The mayor put the onus squarely on neighborhood NIMBYs.

“We’re going keep driving [the inmate population] down with every tool we have, but we can’t get off Rikers, unless there are specific places where the local leadership accept a jail facility,” he said. “It just cannot happen without a vote of the City Council.”

No new jail facility is being considered on Staten Island because of low numbers of arrestees who come from there, he said, but in the other four boroughs, local leadership will have to step up and support new jails.

“We got four other boroughs. We need a specific location and a specific councilmen to step forward in an appropriate location and say, ‘I’m ready to get this process going,” he said. “We need to see a commitment from the city councilmembers in the districts that have been initially proposed to start the land use process to achieve it.”

In March of 2016, DNAinfo exclusively reported that the city was quietly eyeing several sites for new satellite jails including locations in Hunts Point in the Bronx, in College Point in Queens, at 287 Maspeth Ave. on a vacant lot owned by National Grid in East Williamsburg, at 803 Forbell St. in East New York and at two sites on Staten Island.

https://editorial-ny.dnainfo.com/interactives/2016/embed/03/rikers-replacement-sites/rikers.html

The 2016 report shocked and enraged local officials who represented those districts who came out in ardent opposition against new jails in their districts.

Local City Councilman Antonio Reynoso, a vocal advocate on behalf of the Close Rikers campaign, slammed the plan for proposing to put a satellite jail in his district on Maspeth Avenue though he didn’t immediately respond to a request for further comment.

Councilman Rafael Salamanca who represents Hunts Point also opposed a lockup in his district.

“Council Member Salamanca is in favor of closing Rikers, but feels strongly that the fact that the South Bronx has historically been overburdened with correctional facilities should be taken into consideration when it comes time to site new jails, ” spokesman Ryan Monell said.

City Councilman Paul Vallone, who represents College Point, said the city still hasn’t given him a specific location for a new jail building but that he was against the idea.

“Any attempt by the city to target College Point for a proposed jail site will be met by fierce and complete opposition,” Councilman Vallone said.

“They just say College Point as if it’s a dumping ground for the city,” Morales said. “We’ve been working hard to create a Renaissance down there and we really feel that putting a jail in that area would be really detrimental.”

De Blasio touted a 23 percent reduction in Rikers Island inmate population in the time he’s been in office, down to an average of 9,400 people a day, but said local jails will have to be built in the neighborhoods.

“Even a jail population of 5,000 — significantly smaller than the jail population today — will still require identifying and developing appropriate sites for new jails as well as renovating existing facilities in the boroughs,” the report said.
