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”.
