UNIDENTIFIED SLAIN BODY IN ALLEY POND TURNS OUT TO BE 16 YEAR OLD JAMAICA MALE WITH POSSIBLE GANG TIES

Badly decomposed body found in Alley Pond on Sunday, was at first thought to be female, but now the unidentified body is that of 16 year old Julio Vasquez from Jamaica who was stabbed more than two dozen times before being left in the park.

Not surprising this individual is from Jamaica, what, were you expecting,  Forest Hills.

From Queen Times Ledger:

Slain Alley Pond male was 16, possible gang member: Cops

Cops begin roping off the area where the unidentified body of man was found Sunday afternoon.

Police sources have released the identity of the murder victim found in Bayside’s Alley Pond Park on Sunday as a 16-year-old with possible gang ties.

Julio Vasquez from Jamaica was stabbed more than two dozen times before being left in the park to be found by a birdwatcher, according to NYPD, who had said the body was so severely decomposed it would require dental records to identify him.

Police originally thought Vasquez, who lived on 166th St., was a female but later corrected the report stating the victim was male.

The body was discovered in a very remote and heavily wooded part of the park known for its natural and somewhat ungroomed wetlands.

Police from the 111th Precinct responded to the bird watcher’s call at approximately 1 p.m. about an unconscious person within the vicinity of 76th Avenue and Cloverdale Road. But when EMS arrived on the scene, they pronounced the individual dead.

Although some reports said Vasquez was an MS-13 member, a police source was reluctant to ascribe the victim to a specific affiliation.

 

 

BE HONEST, CALL THIS JAMAICA SHITTY “RESIDENTIAL” HOTEL WHAT IS REALLY WILL BE, ANOTHER HOMELESS SHELTER FOR BOTTOM FEEDERS

Coming to a Jamaica neighborhood to you, another shitty hotel marketed as a combo hotel/ “residential” hotel, otherwise known as another fucking shitty homeless shelter.

A hotel in an area that is not even close to any public transportation.

Every time Jamaica takes a step forward, they take three ghetto steps backwards.

New York City SUCKS!!!!

THE “CHIPOTLE ARMEGEDDON” STILL CONTINUES AND THE BEST COMMENT ON WHY JAMAICA AVENUE SHOULD HAVE A CHIPOTLE

Who knew that the mention of a Chipotle coming to Jamaica could get some people in a damn tizzy (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/reality-check-folks-chipotle-coming-to-the-ave-is-not-the-end-of-the-world-or-gentrification-it-is-just-a-fucking-chipolte-a-couple-of-notches-above-taco-bell-not-some-fancy-5-star-french/). Wish there was this much reaction to the garbage strewn, nonsense mess that is what Jamaica seems to be about (which is one reason for the development), but that, not a peep from the crew, but attempts at improving this ghetto run down area just slightly has hood rat panties in an uproar.

Since I posted this, on the Clean Up Jamaica Queens Facebook Page, 1,258 folks were reached, 3,312 had reactions, comments & shares combined with 756 comments on the shared. Damn, it is a Chipotle, not a cure for cancer or the end of the world. Even though there were plenty of negative comments (mostly from the young crew), overall, the majority of people found this new bit of info in a positive light, even though some people seemed to be more stuck on the term “Downtown Jamaica” as opposed to the hood phrase, “The Ave”, which I have not heard it called that since I moved here several years ago. BUT get over a damn name folks, before some of you coined it the ghetto “The Ave”, back in the pre-garbage strewn days it was just Jamaica Avenue before it became ghettoized.

But speaking of shared comments, this happened to be the best one on Clean Up Jamaica Queens Facebook on WHY we should have a Chipotle here in Jamaica, Downtown Jamaica, Jamaica Avenue, The Ave or DoJam.

Sight of the new Chipotle in Jamaica at corner of Jamaica Avenue & 160 Street

I mean… I’m biased in this situation because Chipotle is my everything. But, what is a Downtown Jamaica? #SouthsideJamaicaQueens  In addition, call me oblivious, but what is wrong with a little gentrification? So, you guys would really rather have FOUR stripper shoe stores than 3 stripper shoe stores and a Chipotle?  I’m just saying .

SO CHIPOTLE IN JAMAICA CAUSES SUCH AN OUTRAGE FOR SOME IN THE COMMUNITY, BUT THE GHETTO CRAP THAT WAS IN THAT SPACE WAS JUST FINE & DANDY – REALLY

Chipotle is planning to open its new restaurant at 160-02 Jamaica Ave. (DNAinfo/Ewa Kern-Jedrychowska)

So having a Chipotle at the corner of Jamaica and 160th Street (SW corner) on “The Ave” in “DownTown Jamaica” in the section known as “DoJam” is the end of life as we know it in Jamaica for some folks (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/05/21/reality-check-folks-chipotle-coming-to-the-ave-is-not-the-end-of-the-world-or-gentrification-it-is-just-a-fucking-chipolte-a-couple-of-notches-above-taco-bell-not-some-fancy-5-star-french/) causing laughable comments on Facebook like:

The Regentrification of Jamaica Centre, Jamaica has already begun. First Starbucks now Chipotle! Hmmmmm!

If I see one more post abt down town Jamaica. Mother fucker this isn’t manhattan it’s called the fucking ave dick heads. On another note cool chipotle gone be over there. Still another sign of gentrification.

Right lmao tryna make it sound sophisticated n shit

OOOOOHHH IT’S OVER

But the ghetto crap that was there before was just fine and dandy.

Classy! Jamaica Ave and 160th St

GET REAL FOLKS and as I said before, it is just a fucking Chipotle. You mean the Jamaica ghetto bar is so fucking low, that some of you are threatened by mediocre Chipotle. Oh, MY, it is the END OF JAMAICA. Have you ever walked along the entire length of “The Ave from 170th to Parsons, pretty much most of it already looks like the end of Jamaica, the shit back-end of Jamaica.

Jamaica in the box retail

Shit retail litter Jamaica Avenue. This display is totally illegal according to DOB rules, yet nothing is done about this.

Shit Jamaica Ave retail crap tossed out on the street.

NE corner of 163th & Jamaica Ave.

Jamaica Ave, although this looks even worse when I saw it the other day.

 

REALITY CHECK FOLKS: CHIPOTLE COMING TO “THE AVE” IS NOT THE END OF THE WORLD OR “GENTRIFICATION”, IT IS JUST A FUCKING CHIPOLTE, A COUPLE OF NOTCHES ABOVE TACO BELL, NOT SOME FANCY 5 STAR FRENCH RESTAURANT – GET OVER IT

OH MY FUCKING GOD.  While my recent post about the opening of Chipotle in downtown Jamaica (that some hate that term) on the Ave  (https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/2017/05/19/chipotle-planning-to-open-in-downtown-jamaica-on-the-ave/) had many liking that idea, there were, of course (it’s Jamaica), those who thought a 5 star fancy French Restaurant with valet parking was coming and that it was the end for Jamaica and major gentrification. One commented “They shutting Down The Ave

REALITY CHECK FOLKS, it is only a fucking Chipotle. A CHIPOTLE, owned by McDonald’s and a two notches above Taco Bell and a notch below AppleBee’s. Probably the same folks who were outraged that how dare an Applebee’s come into the  hood and ruin “The Ave” and all it’s crappiness.

That “Chipotle Armageddon” post on Clean Up Jamaica Queens Facebook page was shared like crazy and some of the Jamaica residents (mostly young) thought it was Armageddon Gentrification.  Many also hated the term “Downtown Jamaica”, which, was a term I coined when I first moved here to Jamaica, because, well, it is the business district with businesses, etc, so I would call it that, then down the road, I noticed the powers that be and developers were using it all the time. Again, get over the use of that, I mean it is a downtown area, small, but a downtown area, never the less. I am partial to “The Ave”, much hipper and cooler, so maybe you don’t want that because then you will notice developers and greedy real estate agency saying “Great apartment location and just a few blocks from  THE AVE, where you can work & play.”

This was one of the top highest posts since this blog was created, with the “Chipotle Armageddon” reaching 1,019 and 1,957 (readers, comments & shares). While as can be seen, most liked it, there were of course the ones, who cannot stand to see any type of positive progress in Jamaica and look at it as “gentrification”, which when you think about it is a sad state of mentality with some people here, they would be content to see Jamaica continue as a trashed, crime ridden, nonsense, crap retail/food ghetto place. While there are some things I like about the area and I do like that real urban feel (as compared to fake hipster cool), the area does need cleaning up and some sprucing here and there and that means some nice places to balance out the crap like 99 cent stores, cheap electronic stores, tons of beauty supply stores, crappy food choices and flea market type retail.

Anyway, I had to post some of the comments where folks were in an outrage and I found some of them to be funny, but my 5 top ones, be they negative or positive were these ones, of course #1 being my favorite, this person KNOWS REALITY:

  1. Yeah. But until this place gets gentrified, this is going to to be the ghettoest chipotle to exist.
  2. Yay white bitches in the hood
  3. They always gonna run out of chicken
  4. Trash ass food
  5. That’s what they’re putting there?! There’s already an overpriced Taco Bell across the street!

 

 

And here are some of the “doomsday” Facebook comments:

they really making jamaica white again smh

Downtown Jamaica ?🤔🤔 Its Called The Ave

First Starbucks now we getting chipotle to ? 😭

I knew it son I was like they either gonna put a shake shack or chipotle 🤦🏾‍♀️

Gentrification. They trynna fix the area up so more white people will invest in it and push the minority’s out

 

If I see one more post abt down town Jamaica. Mother fucker this isn’t manhattan it’s called the fucking ave dick heads. On another note cool chipotle gone be over there. Still another sign of gentrification

 

Right lmao tryna make it sound sophisticated n shit

 

The bar is set high as to the people who live there set it high enough to be gentrified no? so please STFU… when it comes to knowing what is bad and what is good for a community…last time I checked the places that had Chipotle or a trader joes…there was less and less black folk to be found… so shove all that 1…

WELL BACK TO JAMAICA BULLSHIT & SE QUEENS GHETTO NONSENSE: WOMAN SHOT IN BACK IN BROAD DAYLIGHT & UPDATE ON OZONE PARK PLAYGROUND SHOOTING INVOLVING THE LATIN KINGS AND TEENAGE BULLSHIT

Christ living in SE Queens is like living in the Trump White House, every other minute it is some shitty breaking news story.

Kind of scary that lately there have been several shootings in broad daylight. The only good thing a Latin King gang member was taken out of this world in that Ozone Playground shooting the other night, but an innocent person could have easily been shot due to these scumbags.

A 21-year-old woman was shot in the back on a Queens street Friday afternoon, police said.

The victim was shot in the lower back on Guy R. Brewer Blvd. near 107th Ave. in Jamaica about 2:15 p.m., police said.

Paramedics rushed her to Jamaica Hospital in stable condition.

Cops were searching for a black Nissan Altima which fled the scene. There were no immediate arrests.

A fatal shooting outside a Queens playground occurred during a gang rumble involving baseball bats and guns, officials said Friday.

When cops arrived at the scene of the Thursday night shooting on 88th St. near Atlantic Ave. in Ozone Park, three shell casings and several baseball bats were found scattered on the ground, police sources said.

Bronx resident Joshua Flores, 23, was shot in the shoulder about 9:30 p.m. The bullet ripped through his body and lodged into his jaw, sources said.

People close to him rushed him to Jamaica Hospital in a black 2009 Honda, medics told police. He died there about 45 minutes later.

“My brother’s been shot!” a woman inside the car screamed to hospital emergency personnel.

Cops reached out to Flores’ brother in the Bronx, who said he last saw his sibling 4 p.m. Thursday when Flores left to hang out with friends in Queens.

The brother told cops he and his brother are members of the Latin Kings gang, police sources said.

 Video surveillance recovered at the scene shows two groups of men fighting and chasing each other before a muzzle flashes.

A Latin King was shot and wounded during a beef with the G-Fly Bloods nearby Thursday’s on May 22, 2016, police sources said. Two Bloods members were arrested for that shooting, cops said.

It was not immediately clear if the two incidents were related.

Cops busted a 15-year-old Queens high schooler they say spit on a Muslim classmate and tried to pull her hijab off, officials said Friday.

The boy was riding an elevator with the 16-year-old victim inside the High School for Law Enforcement and Public Safety in Jamaica when he called her a “Muslim b—h!” and spit on her about 11:15 a.m. Thursday, cops said.

He then tugged on her hijab in an attempt to rip it off her head, officials said.

The girl told school officials, who reported the incident to police.

Hijab victim wants better anti-bias training at NYC schools

Cops questioned the teen and charged him with aggravated harassment and disorderly conduct. He will be charged as a juvenile and so his name was not released, officials said.

His victim was rattled but not physically harmed, cops said.

School officials said the incident was “immediately reported.”

“We are providing the school with additional support to ensure appropriate follow-up action is taken,” Department of Education spokeswoman Toya Holness said.

“This incident is troubling, and this type of behavior has no place in our schools.”

As of Sunday, police had investigated 12 hate crimes against Muslims in New York this year — compared to nine during the same period last year, a 33% jump.

 

A FEW NOTES OF ACTUAL GOOD JAMAICA INTERESTS: THE 6TH ANNUAL JAMAICA BALL, THE THIRD ANNUAL JAMAICA RESTAURANT CRAWL, FREE TENNIS LESSONS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE & EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES AT DALLAS BBQ

A few notes of interest, not related to garbage, crime, crooked & do nothing elected officials and other typical Jamaica ghetto bullshit and nonsense.

The Jamaica Ball still has tickets for tonight’s event (5.20.17). Went a few years ago and it was a good time, although you have to see some of the smiling bullshit artists known as “our elected officials” there. But for a worthy cause. Presented by A Better Jamaica run by Greg Mays, one of the upstanding players in our community and overall good guy.

The Third Annual Jamaica Crawl and certainly some good restaurants on the list. Sangria happens to be one of my favorites, not just in Jamaica either and O’Lavrador is an old school restaurant with good food and a very friendly nice bar next door.

 

 

Free tennis lessons at Detective Keith Williams Park (too bad this nice park has to sit across from that polluting, poisnous Royal Waste Dump. Time to DUMP that business the hell out of here.

JOBS. For those who complain “our young kids have no jobs, so that is why the hangout” bullshit. APPLY. Sure it might not be the best paying job around, but if you are good, you certainly can make nice tips if you are a wait stuff. Just make sure to check your crappy Jamaica attitude at the door.
