SO MADAME ASSHOLE KATZ IF “IT’S GOOD FOR FAMILIES IT’S GOOD FOR QUEENS” WHY DON’T YOU PUT HOMELESS DROP IN CENTER IN YOUR HOOD OF FOREST HILLS

The future of Jamaica

The future of Jamaica

As usual not a peep out of questionable Queens Borough President Melinda Katz with this homeless drop-in center being placed in Ozone Park, which DOES NOT HAVE A HOMELESS ISSUE, but it will now when all the problematic bottom of the barrel folks made there way to Ozone Park for a nap, shower (I doubt that), get something to eat, etc. This is the equivalent of putting out milk for stray cats. Once they know where the milk is, they keep coming back and they bring their buddies. But the folks in Ozone Park would rather have cats (no pun intended) than problematic homeless folks, which will more than likely being very problematic single males.

So Katz, why didn’t  you have this put on your block, I mean “if it’s good for families, it’s good for Queens.” I guess as long as it is not in your own backyard, but someone elses like people of color and  immigrant communities.

So black people and immigrants, remember Melinda Katz when it comes time for election. She stood by silently, while they dumped more homeless shit in your community.

WAKE UP FOLKS, STOP PLAYING THE FOOL.katz

From Queens  Chronicle:

Ozone Park anti-drop-in center crowd promises resistance

 

Ozone Park residents said Sunday they will not be deterred in their opposition to a homeless drop-in center on Atlantic Avenue, even as the lease for the building was finalized days before.

“We’re not giving up the fight,” resident Joe Maldonado said at a protest in front of the building.

The Department of Homeless Services and Breaking Ground last Thursday signed a lease agreement with the landlord of 100-32 Atlantic Ave., which previously housed Dallis Bros. Coffee, to turn the site into a drop-in center. The center will not be a permanent place of residence, but rather a place for homeless people on the street to go to take a shower or get something to eat. It will be operated by Breaking Ground.

Details of the lease or when the site will become operational were not immediately available.

A few dozen residents, along with Assemblyman Mike Miller (D-Woodhaven), stood outside the site Sunday to protest the move.

“You’re getting the worst of the worst over here,” said Maldonado, a Republican who unsuccessfully challenged Miller in November. “It’s unsafe.”

He and others cited the presence of public and private schools within a one-mile radius of the site, including the High School of Construction, Trades, Engineering and Architecture — which is less than 200 feet from the drop-in center.

“Why didn’t they think about that?” said concerned resident Wanda Torres. “I think it’s too close to homes and too close to the school.”

When the drop-in center was first proposed last summer, the community raised concerns over its proximity to the high school because any sex offender potentially staying there would be in violation of state law mandating they stay 1,000 feet from any educational facility.

DHS and Breaking Ground officials told residents late last year it would not serve sex offenders at the site – but that still remains an issue for some who believe the nonprofit will have trouble accurately identifying them.

Councilman Ruben Wills (D-South Jamaica) discussed the matter in a statement, issued in conjunction with Miller last Friday.

“The current deficiencies within the Department of Homeless Services and its providers have led to both unintentional and blatant violations of State statutes that govern the movement of certain sex offenders (i.e. Skyway); the same is likely to happen here,” the councilman said, referring to the South Ozone Park shelter. “I cannot in good faith endorse any such proposal under these circumstances, and have repeatedly urged DHS and Breaking Ground to reconsider.”

Looking for a way to stop the center, residents wondered if they could seek a court injunction against it. Miller said he would contact the law firm that fought a proposed homeless shelter in Glendale.

“Do you see them in there, in Glendale?” the assemblyman responded when asked by a resident if the firm was a good choice.

Stanley Shuckman, a realtor who owns the strip of stores across the street from the Atlantic Avenue site, volunteered to pay for the legal services.

Shuckman said he showed the DHS and Breaking Ground several sites he believes would have been more suitable for the center.

“I had a very specific criteria,” Shuckman said. “It would’ve solved all these problems.”

He did not specify which sites he showed told the two groups but last month officials from both the DHS and Breaking Ground Community Board 9 none of the suggestions he gave them would have been suitable.

But Shuckman believes that’s because the landlord of the Atlantic Avenue site, Fred Khalili, was able to give them an attractive deal.

“Why else would you hold onto a vacant property for months and not put it on the market?” the realtor said.

Miller, in his statement, said, “When Breaking Ground and Department of Homeless Services was given the opportunity to find viable alternative locations they appeased the community by looking at other sites and then claimed the original location was the best fit. They settled for this location because it was available and the landlord was looking to rent it.”

He also said the agencies were not being transparent with the community on the details of the plan.

“No matter how many times I asked for updated information, both organizations were not forthcoming,” the legislator said. “This is the process? Where is the community involvement?”

Community Board 9 Chairman Raj Rampershad said at last Tuesday’s board meeting he plans to meet with the DHS and Breaking Ground in the near future.

Officials from the nonprofit told CB 9 last month it plans to phase in the number of homeless people it serves at the site, starting with 10 per day. That number will remain steady until next year, when it will go up to 50 and ultimately 125.

 

A MESSAGE FROM QUEENS BOROUGH PRESIDENT MELINDA KATZ: HER OPINION & MY REALITY IN PHOTOS

Found this political bullshit from the wonderful sell-out Queens Borough President Katz, no different from any of her other destructive sell out predecessors.

WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP, BULLSHIT and UNREALITY.

Opinion: Good for Families, Good for Queens

By Melinda Katz | May 05, 2015 |

katz

Melinda Katz is the Queens borough president.

You’ve probably noticed that the spotlight on Queens has been shining brighter these days.

The James Fobb Estate

The James Fobb Estate

MSN Money, Condé Nast Traveler, TimeOut New York and Streeteasy.com—they all agree that Queens is hot and on the move! In fact, Lonely Planet recently designated Queens the top destination for travelers to the United States. Let me be clear—they didn’t name New York City. They specifically crowned Queens.

Seagull River in SE Queens

Seagull River in SE Queens

And why wouldn’t they? Our neighborhoods are home to families that hail from over 120 countries and speak over 135 languages. And it’s the voices of these families that have been the focus of my first year, making sure their insights and needs are a part of government’s decision-making process.homelessonthetrain-2

Because of them, our litmus at Borough Hall is simply this: If it’s good for families, it’s good for Queens.image1

Queens offers a dynamic and attractive landscape for investment and job creation, which means better opportunities for families and visitors to live, work and play.garbage-1-23-17-003

It’s an exciting time for Queens. Great neighborhoods, shopping, professional sports, booming new businesses and nightlife, arts and an incomparable array of cuisines from all over the world. Queens is a unique borough, unlike any other, and we are proud of what we have to offer.sop-illegal-parking2

We don’t have to claim to be the center of the universe, but we are without a doubt the intersection of the world.illegal-parking1-16-17-007

We’ve made tourism a high priority of my administration because it is one of the strongest tools for growth. Together, we’re not only creating jobs, we’re building neighborhoods. And we’re doing that in a number of ways, especially since some of the city’s hottest projects are being built in Queens.garbage-1-2-17-002

The potential is incredible—we have untapped prime real estate in Maspeth and in the Rockaways. Thriving transit and business hubs in downtown Jamaica and Long Island City. Skilled workforces across trades and from all over the globe. Diversified economic engines in Flushing and Jackson Heights. And forward-thinking public-private partnerships that produce projects like Astoria Cove.south-ozone-park-car

In Long Island City of western Queens, we’re building the city’s leading tech ecosystem, encouraging access, innovation and entrepreneurship. Over 50 startups like Krate, Digital Natives and Shapeways 3D Printing have already hatched in Queens. And that’s just the beginning. By leveraging western Queens’ ample space for growth, its projected development, and its proximity to the Cornell NYC Tech campus, we will steer our borough into the competitive lane of the digital age.hillside-garbage12-4-16-011

In downtown Jamaica, we recently unveiled the Jamaica Now Action Plan, an aggressive and holistic 21-point plan to stimulate smart growth and improve livability in Jamaica, Queens. Everyone has long recognized Jamaica’s inherent potential for smart growth. It is one of the remaining prime commercial hubs that offer housing, amenities and transportation. Jamaica really has some of the most strategically positioned—while affordably priced—real estate left in the city.trucks11-24-16-003

So we shored up that will and now we finally have a way. The plan is a focused commitment backed up by real resources, and reflects the city’s strong commitment to revitalize Jamaica’s downtown core and make it even more attractive to investors, even more livable for existing residents and businesses.fobb-garbage-nov16

To augment the plan, we announced an additional agreement with Mayor Bill de Blasio on including the downtown Jamaica corridor into phase 1 of the LinkNYC rollout, making capital improvements at the southern lawn of Rufus King Park, enhancing Brinkerhoff Mall for more public and programmatic use, and committing resources for marketing and branding to enhance tourism, especially to our treasured cultural institutions.

Huge pile of cement has been like this for over five years.

All this and much more is on the near horizon.Dynamic Collision4

Government recognizes, however, that the quality of our infrastructure can either keep us competitive or stifle our growth. Significant investment at our airports is a critical priority for our city that affects all industries.Teddy and Trash7.17.16 023

Take, for example, John F. Kennedy and LaGuardia airports, New York City’s gateways to the world. About 48,000 people are employed at both airports combined. To the New York-New Jersey metropolitan region, their economic activity contributes $53 billion every year by generating about 372,000 total jobs and $19 billion in annual wages and salaries.Sutphin Garbage

Yet the investments in these gateways have fallen short. The Port Authority’s total capital investments in JFK to date has been a paltry $7 billion; in LaGuardia, $1.4 billion. These investments simply have not kept up with growth.

World-class airports are necessary to keep our great city globally competitive, and I applaud the governor and the Port Authority for investing additional billions of capital to redevelop LaGuardia’s central terminal and airport infrastructure.

As we move forward, the opportunity guised as a challenge for government is to keep Queens competitive as the most attractive option for families to not just move to, but more importantly to stay in.garbage and trucks7.1.16 013

And so we stand united and committed in our determination to keep this a borough of families, for families. Because we know that if it’s good for families, it’s good for Queens.garbage and trucks7.1.16 008

LOTS OF SEX TRAFFICKING GOING ON IN SOUTH OZONE PARK & THE DIRTY SE QUEENS: IS THIS WHAT QUEENS BP MEAN “IF IT’S GOOD FOR FAMILIES IT’S GOOD FOR QUEENS

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz from City and State New York: (http://cityandstateny.com/articles/politics/new-york-city/good-for-families,-good-for-queens.html#.WKBdBvLAlF4):

melindakatz2-3a208991“Our neighborhoods are home to families that hail from over 120 countries and speak over 135 languages. And it’s the voices of these families that have been the focus of my first year, making sure their insights and needs are a part of government’s decision-making process. Because of them, our litmus at Borough Hall is simply this: If it’s good for families, it’s good for Queens.”

That phrase really does not even make any kind of sense by the way.

AND home to much sex trafficking (of course NOT being addressed and thanks in part to the many fine upstanding residents of Queens and especially the dirty SE Queens, many who come from over 120 countries). Funny, I always hear from these asshole elected officials about how great Queens is, but you never hear them talk about the many problems that plaque this borough and especially in the SE Queens area.  I am sure there are statistics with the sex trafficking before Queens became the Third World Borough and after. Would be interested to see in regard to crime rates and the sex trafficking.

So is this what you are talking about Katz (Just because you and your cronies ignore all these issues and quality of life problems, does not mean they do not exist):katz

From Queens Times Ledger:

South Ozone Park man charged with trafficking teen girl

“The defendant took advantage of a young girl shortly after she turned 16 to enslave and force her to work as a prostitute and turn all of her earnings over to him beginning when she was 16 and with physically abusing her and threatening her with death when she pleaded to be allowed to stop living as a prostitute,” said DA Richard Brown.

“Some would say prostitution is a victimless crime,” Brown said. “It is not.”

Brown identified the defendant as Shawn Hawkins, 23, of 122nd Street in South Ozone Park. Hawkins was arraigned before Queens Criminal Court Judge Bruna Dibiase on a criminal complaint charging him with sex trafficking, promoting prostitution and endangering the welfare of a child.

Hawkins faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.

He was held on $500,000 bond, $250,000 cash bail and ordered to return to court March 21, Brown said.

According to the charges, Hawkins took the girl – now 18 – to a Jamaica hotel around her 16th birthday and had sexual intercourse with her, then asked her to work for him as a prostitute.

He is alleged to have posted signs advertising the girl and illustrated with her photo, the complaint said.

Hawkins demanded that the girl address him as “Daddy.”

According to the charges, when Hawkins ordered the victim to work as a prostitute on Jan 14, 2017 she refused and Hawkins punched her in the face and threw her to the floor, spraining her ankle. While then girl lay on the floor, Hawkins is alleged to have repeatedly punched her face, bruising her left eye.

On occasions when the girl was too tired to work, Hawkins made her take cocaine or Xanax to keep calm and at work.

 

WHERE IS COMMUNITY BOARD 12 & ELECTED OFFICIALS LIKE KATZ, MILLER, COMRIE, HYDNMAN, DONOVAN & SANDERS AS MERRICK BLVD TURNS INTO THE NEW WILLETS POINT JUNK YARD

Shame on each and every single one of you for NOT addressing this issue which has been going on for a long time and gets worse with each passing day. How can you even call yourself public servants, “leaders” or even care for the community when this is going on right in front of your eyes and some of you have your offices right there like Miller and Hyndman.

Would you see this on Queens Blvd in Forest Hills or in Park Slope, so why see it here. This is even worse than Willets Point, since Willets Points was not smack in the middle of homes, apartments, parks, senior citizens apartment and the highly praised Flake Temple of Cash. THANKS for your contribution to keep Jamaica GHETTO and continuing the concept of black communities are TRASHED. You all have NO BALLS and are so spineless, it is pathetic. I have YET heard one of you address or even bring up this MAJOR Quality of life issue right in your own backyard.

SOME JAMAICA PROBLEMS WERE SOLVED RIGHT IN THE NICK OF KATZ’S MAJOR BULLSHIT STATE OF THE BOROUGH

The James Fobb Estate

From Pamela Hazel, Jamaica resident and community activist:

Problem solved just in the nick of the B/P bullshit address.

Borough President Katz had her fake borough address at York College last Friday, Jan. 27, but that was not the only event. There were two others: the famous “bathroomgate” bathroom was repaired earlier that day; just in the nick of the address. It was out of service since Jan. 23 rd.

Also early that morning, the famous James Fobb’s garage was cleaned. The discarded living room set, black bags, high heel shoes and other trash were removed;  just in the nick of Katz’s fake address; which was scheduled for 10:00 A. M —- coincidence?

The award winning political actress gave another astounding report. Her political sermon was a feel-good stunt for the vulnerable believers. She proclaimed that more jobs were created in the world’s borough — Queens. Meanwhile, our young black men remain job seekers.

katz crap

The political gangsters were out in full force; to support their gang leader as she delivered her fake accolades. There was no mention to improve: homelessness, crime, and the filthy black areas.

The gangsters and their predecessors have ignored the black communities for decades. They can only blame themselves for the rise of a political outsider, President Trump. Now they have to deal with the Trump effect; it is fast and furious.

The state of the black neighbourhood is in a state.

KATZ’S BULLSHIT STATE OF THE BOROUGH WITH THE USUAL SUSPECTS & ONE COUNCIL CANDIDATE STATING “TIME TO INVESTIGATE KATZ”, HER OF THE NOT FOR THE PEOPLE BUT DEVELOPERS AND PROFITEERS

Don’t know if anyone wasted their time going to Melinda Katz’s bullshit State of the Borough at York College on Friday, which obviously was filled with ass kissers and do nothing  puppet elected officials, but from what I read, it was just the typical political bullshit,  but then should you be surprised. But one council candidate, Paul Graziano, had this to say on Katz’s push for some kind of monster stadium on public property to make the wealthy even more wealthy (which is pretty much asshole con man Donald Trump’s, our “let me clear my throat”, president, entire agenda). SIDENOTE: FOLKS, wake up, Trump has already proven in his first week in office just how dangerous & irresponsible he really is for this country and the entire world.

“Borough President Katz’s push for yet another stadium in Willets Point on property that was essentially stolen from small businesses for the supposed use of creating a new affordable residential community — a plan that she herself negotiated in 2008 as the Land Use Chair on the City Council! — would be almost comical if it weren’t so disturbing,” said Paul Graziano, an urban planning consultant, plaintiff in the lawsuit and City Council hopeful.

“Law enforcement officials should look very carefully at possible collusion between the Borough President’s office and the developers in question, as this seems to be yet another attempt at grabbing our city’s public property in order to further enrich a few very already wealthy individuals at our expense,” Graziano, who is running as a primary opponent against Councilman Paul Vallone (D-Bayside) in September, continued.

We need more people like Graziano and Senator Tony Avella, instead of the spineless, do nothing and corrupt elected officials that fill our offices, especially in the dirty SE Queens. BUT then look at what we have in office for the highest position in the country. No wonder the Domesday clock moved 30 seconds closer to midnight (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/speaking-of-science/wp/2017/01/26/the-doomsday-clock-just-moved-again-its-now-two-and-a-half-minutes-to-midnight/?utm_term=.b2c8cc844e15).

From Queens Courier:

state-of-the-borough-bullshi2
Queens Borough President Melinda Katz gave her State of the Borough Speech at York College on Jan. 27.

Anyone who keeps up with the news in the “World’s Borough” knows that Queens has become a hot spot for tourism and a popular destination for people and families looking for a more affordable option.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz spoke about the borough’s recent popularity and more in her State of the Borough address on Jan. 27 at York College in Jamaica.

During her speech she listed a number of changes in Queens including the transformation of the skyline along the East River, the improvements to the New York State Pavilion, Arthur Ashe Stadium and the investments in Jamaica through the Jamaica Now Action Plan and LaGuardia and JFK Airports.

“We have been through some extraordinary changes,” she said.

She also highlighted the 5 percent increase in jobs since 2013, 34 planned hotels in the borough and $60 billion in economic activity from both airports. LaGuardia Airport is currently going through a $4 billion construction project, the first complete rebuild of any airport nationwide in more than 20 years.

In addition to LaGuardia Airport, JFK Airport will receive a $10 billion overhaul.

“It’s a new day for infrastructure in Queens, and we’re all on our way to creating best-in-class entry portals befitting of the international capital in the world,” Katz said.

Since the theme of the speech was “The Borough of Growth, The Borough of Families,” Katz also touted a number of programs implemented to aid families in Queens.

She highlighted the state of public schools, where two high schools including Townsend Harris High School and Queens High School for the Sciences are ranked among the Top 10 in New York State. Katz also pointed out challenges – Queens still has the highest overcrowding rate where elementary schools are at 119 percent capacity and high schools are at 111 percent capacity.

“So naturally, to stay competitive and meet growing demand, we’ve been pretty busy building up our schools,” she said.

Since 2013, 11 new schools were created and six existing schools have been expanded. A 461 percent increase in pre-K seats has resulted in 20,000 seats for toddlers and 43 classroom trailers have been removed.

Transportation options have also grown in the last few years, with Citywide Ferry Service being expanded through Long Island City, Astoria and the Rockaways. A new LIRR station will run through Elmhurst and the Main Street LIRR stop in Flushing has been renovated.

But she called on the Department of Transportation to come up with a borough-wide plan to make it easier for residents to travel on bicycle, train, bus and ferry.

“Queens is a transit desert,” she said. “Our subways reach only a third of the borough. The subways and buses we do have are overflowing due to ever increasing ridership. While I commend the Governor and the Mayor for putting forth ambitious transportation agendas, those individual projects shouldn’t be done in a vacuum.”

She requested a “comprehensive plan with a macro view, a citywide, coordinated transportation agenda for tomorrow that also addresses the unique challenges of each borough.”

Housing has also been a challenge in the borough, with rising rents and a growing population. Katz addressed the large homeless population in the city and the city’s reliance on hotels to house homeless families.

“The impact of this in Queens has been substantial,” she said. “In addition, we should also require a special permit to place hotels, which we don’t currently have. This would mean a mandate public review through ULURP, help guarantee community input and allow government to better monitor all hotel growth, citywide.”

Lastly, she called for leaders to “be unafraid to think bigger, bolder and more comprehensively” in terms of expanding Flushing Meadows Corona Park and Willets Point.

“We need to review positioning ourselves for success by thinking creatively about further options that address our changing borough’s needs – like a new school, an eco-recreation center, more parking to accommodate simultaneous events, because all those big events that we have now are wreaking havoc on the soccer fields and grass in Flushing Meadows for parking,” she said.

Public Advocate Letitia James and Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz were in the audience, along with former Queens Borough President Claire Shulman, for whom Katz served as director of community boards. Almost all of the 14 Queens City Council representatives and various commissioners from city agencies were in attendance as well.

From Queens Chronicle:

BP Melinda Katz proposes soccer, hockey at Willets Point

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz in her State of the Borough address Friday proposed the placement of a soccer and hockey arena at Willets Point, as well as a school, economic recreation center and a parking facility at the 62-acre site.

“New York City’s land is not limitless, and with the projected growth in our borough, this highly coveted area of Willets Point needs to be remediated and prepped for a cleaner future,” Katz said at her address at York College. “…We should be unafraid to think bigger … bolder … and more comprehensively.”

Her idea, of which there were very few details, could face significant pushback.

Right now, the nearby parking lot for Citi Field, which is technically parkland, is being eyed for a 1.4 million-square foot mega mall. Preservationists, who say any such development would require approval from the Legislature due to the land’s status, have sued to block the project, called Willets West.

Those opponents of the plan, led by state Sen. Tony Avella (D-Bayside), scored a major victory in 2015 when the state Appellate Division ruled the project illegal but the developers, Queens Development Group, successfully petitioned the Court of Appeals to hear their argument. The case remains there.

The developers say the Willets West project is financially necessary in order to move ahead with development at Willets Point itself.

Katz, in her address, said, “… as we await the outcome of the lawsuit, let’s ponder additional options.”

“We should be unafraid we should think bigger, bolder and more comprehensively,” she later said. “We need to review positioning ourselves for success by thinking creatively about further options that address our changing borough’s needs — a new school, an eco-recreation center, more parking to accommodate simultaneous big events that we have there now, because all those big events that we have now are wreaking havoc on the soccer fields and grass in Flushing Meadows for parking.

“And to help pay for it, let’s consider a soccer stadium, let’s consider a hockey stadium” she said. “Just imagine if we, the World’s Borough, hosted the World Cup or the Stanley Cup.”

A soccer stadium was previously proposed at nearby Flushing Meadows Corona Park, but that plan fizzled out following massive community opposition.

At the bare minimum, Katz said of Willets Point, the old Iron Triangle, “Let’s clean it up.”

One opponent of the mall project quickly criticized the borough president’s proposal.

“Borough President Katz’s push for yet another stadium in Willets Point on property that was essentially stolen from small businesses for the supposed use of creating a new affordable residential community — a plan that she herself negotiated in 2008 as the Land Use Chair on the City Council! — would be almost comical if it weren’t so disturbing,” said Paul Graziano, an urban planning consultant, plaintiff in the lawsuit and City Council hopeful.

“Law enforcement officials should look very carefully at possible collusion between the Borough President’s office and the developers in question, as this seems to be yet another attempt at grabbing our city’s public property in order to further enrich a few very already wealthy individuals at our expense,” Graziano, who is running as a primary opponent against Councilman Paul Vallone (D-Bayside) in September, continued.

Avella called it a “non-starter,” citing the opposition to the failed Flushing Meadows Corona Park stadium.

“I don’t think that will fly with the community,” he said. “I’m sort of surprised the borough president would suggest a stadium.”
