JAMAICA’S METROPOLITAN LUMBER – ANOTHER BAD FUCKING NEIGHBOR IN THIS COMMUNITY

From Pamela Hazel, Community Activist & Resident:

Metropolitan Lumber Hardware Store is neglecting its responsibilities. This is one of the worst business establishments in Queens.
Metropolitan Lumber has NOT removed snow from its sidewalk; the area is located at the corner of Merrick Boulevard and 108th. Avenue. It is slippery and dangerous.  Residents have no choice, but to use the street.
One part of the sidewalk  was  cleaned however. It is the entrance for Metropolitan storage area.
According to Department of Sanitation policy, snow should be removed four hours  after it snows. Well, the snow started in the wee hours of Tuesday; by Thursday afternoon more than 48 hours later the fallen snow remains a dangerous eyesore.

The store manager does not care about the residents of this black neighbourhood, Jamaica Queens. Residents have asked repeatedly, but to no avail. The reason is clear. Borough president/Katz, Senator Comrie and the other gangsters do nothing, but lip service.

Boranian, you are responsible for contacting D.O.S, on voters’  behalf. Please do your highly paid job. Unfortunately, someone must get hurt before Metropolitan and the gangsters take action.

QUEENS BP KATZ PUTS IN HER TWO CENTS ON WILLETS POINT CLEAN-UP – BUT WHAT ABOUT THE NEW WILLETS POINTS IN JAMAICA, MERRICK BLVD – A FUCKING DISGRACE

Garbage & Cars6.18.16 058Sure the all the crappy auto shops in Willets Point have been shut down as the City begins another huge money project, but where have they gone. Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what.

Well, Katz, how about the New Willets Point in Jamaica on Merrick Blvd where thug auto body shops have turned that area into a fucking mess of junked and unlicensed vehicles all over Merrick Blvd and the sidewalks and many of the residential side streets. And since Merrick is a heavily traveled road of cars, taxi, liver vans, buses, etc, allow these shops to take up the entire right land in certain section causing a hazardous condition plus bottle necking, I would think Katz who has made trips to Jamaica to talk about the Jamaica Now Action Plan, would speak up about this mess. I mean the local elected officials like Senator Comrie and Councilman Miller have not uttered one word about this disgrace, especially since the area has churches, a senior citizen apartment complex and residential homes are all around.

BUT nope, nothing from the Evil White Queens and her ebony clown posse. Just more ghetto nonsense where respect and pride are harder to find than a unicorn or a hard working Jamaica elected official. START ENFORCING LAWS with these Auto Body Shops which have completely taken control of this area. SO WHERE  THE HELL ARE YOU KATZ. Would you allow this SHIT in your neighborhood? AND where are the so-called black leaders on this issue that stares all of you in the face every single day. Garbage & Cars6.18.16 115Garbage & Cars6.18.16 111

From AM New York:

willetsStart cleanup to clear path for Willets Pt.

It’s quiet at Willets Point. The New York Mets are at spring training in Florida. And most of the auto body shops on 126th Street, across from Citi Field, are closed, with demolition of the ramshackle buildings underway.

While that’s progress, the former industrial zone tucked away in a corner of Corona is a long way from being the hub of economic activity NYC officials envisioned a decade ago. The 62 acres just beyond the stadium’s rightfield wall could and should be a regional centerpiece, home to a retail mall and a hotel, to jobs and economic development, to sports and entertainment, and to affordable housing.

Besides the seasonal flow of Mets fans, Willets Point would become a destination if the proposed AirTrain to LaGuardia gets off the drawing boards. No matter what the vision, the site remains a cesspool of unsewered property, unpaved roads and land in desperate need of environmental remediation.

Part of the problem with advancing the overall development of Willets Point is that it is mired in legal battles over whether the Citi Field parking lot is parkland and can’t be used as the site of a mall. The state Court of Appeals will hear arguments in the case on April 25.

Still, there is much NYC can do. Beyond ongoing demolition, there’s significant cleanup and infrastructure needed to prepare for new construction. The city’s Economic Development Corp. said most of the remediation will not begin until the lawsuit is settled and final plans are agreed upon by the city and the developers, a combination of Related Companies and Sterling Equities, which owns the Mets.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz, who has no authority over the project but has made it a focus this year, asks: Why wait? And she’s right to ask. Environmental and infrastructure work has to be done no matter what. Developers and city officials should do more now. That would hasten an already long-delayed timetable, and would be a sign that they’re committed to the project.

Now is the time to start. The city and the developers have to find a way to move Willets Point forward.

25-year-old woman shot after fight breaks out at Queens bar

bar

A 25-year-old woman was shot in the ankle after a fight broke out at Lovell’s Afterdark Bar and Lounge on Merrick Blvd. in Queens.

(Google Maps)

A gunman with a .40-caliber pistol shot a 25-year-old woman attending a birthday celebration following a Queens bar brawl early Wednesday, police said.

The fight between two men broke out inside Lovell’s Afterdark Bar and Lounge on Merrick Blvd. in Laurelton around 3:40 a.m., cops said.

When the clash spilled out of the bar onto Merrick Blvd. near 224th St., several people, including the victim, went out to see what was happening, witnesses told police.

That’s when the gunman pulled his gun and fired off four rounds, striking the woman in the ankle.

Paramedics took her to Jamaica Hospital for treatment.

The gunman ran off and remained at large Wednesday.

Cops questioned the bar patron the gunman was fighting with, but he hasn’t been cooperative with police, officials said.

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.

ILLEGAL OVERNIGHT COMMERCIAL WASTE TRACTOR TRAILER PARKING: WHEN ONE FILES A 311 COMPLAINT, DON’T RESPOND THEY WERE GONE WHEN IN REALITY THEY ARE NOT

Why file a 311 complaint when half the time you get the response, “no violation” or “those responsible are gone”, when there is a VIOLATION and THOSE RESPONSIBLE ARE NOT GONE. Case in point.

First, I just don’t understand why this whole illegal parking of huge tractor trailers in LIRR Tunnels and streets continues to be an issue year after year after year in this community not too mention the continuation of auto body shops along Merrick Blvd into the new Willets Point, especially from Liberty to 110th St but going all the way to 125th.
This past Saturday (2.4.17) driving from downtown Jamaica to Long Island, I noticed 4 large waste tractor trailer trucks parked all weekend inside the LIRR Tunnels at the Merrick Blvd and Archer Ave location.  After 9/11, this astounds me that such trucks continue to do this and besides the fact that it is ILLEGAL for overnight storage on streets. Coming back, several of  these same awful smelling trucks were parked all along 168th St and Douglas Ave Location. This morning I file a 311 complaint and get this total bullshit response:

Service Request #: C1-1-1364278361
Date Submitted: 02/05/17 7:10:06 AM
Request Type: Illegal Parking
Details: Overnight Commercial Storage

Your Service Request was closed. The Police Department responded and upon arrival those responsible for the condition were gone.

But when I went by there at 11:00AM today, all the trucks were in the same place, so tell me, how do your eyes see “those responsible were gone”. Complete bullshit. Photos do not LIE.

trucks4-5-17-001trucks4-5-17-002trucks4-5-17-003

Now onto the NEW Willets point, Merrick Blvd. All along Merrick Blvd and especially from Liberty Ave to 110th, the auto body shops were in full swing with junked and unlicensed vehicles, two trucks parked all on Merrick, side streets and in some cases in the middle of Merrick Blvd (ALL COMPLETELY ILLEGAL). To make matters worse, many of the autobody shops on the east side of Merrick had cars parked right in the right hand land causing major traffic problems and posing serious safety issues. THIS is a major heavily traveled road and to have auto body shops ILLEGALLY blocking a lane of traffic is again astounding.
AND to make matters worse all of these issues have been going on for years and I have filed numerous complaints throughout that time but to little avail, because the problems are still continuing. Also of concern with so many of these unscrupulous auto body shop are the deposing of  waste materials, highly toxic liquids, which would not put it past them to just dump much of that anywhere in the vicinity, not too mention all the junked cars I see leaking toxic fluids all over the street.

 

WHERE is the enforcement, where is COMMUNITY BOARD 12, where is Councilman I. Daneek Miller, Senator Comrie and Assembly Member Hyndman. THIS IS ALL IN YOUR DISTRICT. The total lack of respect in this community by not only the people, the businesses but the powers that be is APPALLING. Tell, me would any of this shit happen in forest Hills or Park Slope or Upper West Side, yet it completely out in the open happens every single day in this community. As I approached Long Island on Merrick, I saw auto body ships there, but no junked or unlicensed vehicles or two trucks up on sidewalks, on the streets or blocking traffic, NOT ONE. The media has done some stories on this YET this ILLEGAL behavior continues like nobody in this community really gives a shit, because if they really did, this would not keep continuing.

 

You all talk a good game (and some barely do that) but when it comes to actual work on these issues, that falls to the wayside. We are not talking about curing cancer, we are talking about ILLEGAL parking by Commercial trucks and shady auto body shops.  AND you wonder why people have such attitudes about communities of color, not only the nonsense, but the lack of any regard from the powers that be.

 

SO can one of YOU answer why this is still continuing BUT would never even happen in a place like Forest Hills, Katz’s hood. AND please don’t give me some bullshit response how the issue was taken care of or those responsible were gone, when in fact that is not the case because then I just take photos and post this bullshit. THAT is not called ENFORCEMENT. That is called not doing your job properly and NO ENFORCEMENT and it is insulting.

 

DAY 5: STILL NO ANSWERS FROM THE POWERS THAT BE WHY LAWS ARE NOT BEING ENFORCED ON THUG AUTO BODY SHOPS/DEALERS PLACING JUNKED & UNLICENSED CARS ON STREETS/SIDEWALKS

abandon-cars-merrickWe are on DAY 5 of the NO ANSWER from the “powers that be” on why there is a lack of enforcement (well in reality NO ENFORCEMENT) with auto body shops/dealers placing their junked and unlicensed vehicles all over public streets/sidewalks.

Merrick Blvd continues to look like a major junkyard and the New Willets Point of Queens from Archer Avenue to the LI border and along all the side streets. Hundreds and I mean hundreds (I know, I have counted many times) are all over this area 24/7 and this has been going on for decades all under the watchful eyes of everyone.

So no answer from the following:

  1. Queens Borough President Melinda Katz and her cronies in Borough Hall
  2. Senator Leroy Comrie
  3. Councilman I. Daneek Miller
  4. Community Board 12
  5. Community Board 11 and other community Boards in the affected areas.
  6. NYPD
  7. 103rd precinct and the other SE Queens precinct in affected areas.
  8. Assembly Member Alicia Hyndman
  9. Assembly Member Vivian Cook
  10. Councilman Ruben Wills
  11. Public Advocate Letitia James (who know how to come out here to stump for Comrie when he was running for Senator.
  12. And of course Mayor dumBlasio or Mayor dicBlasio, whichever you prefer.

My senator, Tony Avella, is not on that list, since Merrick Blvd is not his area and he has already  helped me on issues not in his district.

Any takers on Day 5

And where is the media on this major issue that they pretty much have not covered, especially considering there may be some payoffs with our power that be.

And so the Days of a simple unanswered question by the powers that be continues…………………………………. as NO RESPECT or PRIDE continues from our “so-called leaders” and those who serve to enforce the laws in the Dirty Southeast Queens.

In the meantime, trucks continue to drive illegally on residential streets. Tractor trailer trucks continue to illegally park over night on Merrick Blvd and the downtown are LIRR tunnels in FULL VIEW OF NYPD. Dangerous double parking happens continuous on Merrick Blvd, Hillside Avenue, 170th street between Jamaica & Hillside Ave, illegal garbage dumping continues, illegal conversions go on and on and of course the whole Jamaica Homeless Village situation continues where, the number of shelters and cluster fuck supportive sites are in the 30’s.

trucks-12-9-16-001

Yet Senator Comrie and Councilman Miller have the time for canned bullshit speeches at the Rufus King Park Holiday Tree lighting that took place this Saturday evening and to praise who wonderful Jamaica is.

So the same old bullshit continues on Day 5 of not answering a simple question.

DAY 4: STILL NO ANSWERS FROM THE POWERS THAT BE WHY LAWS ARE NOT BEING ENFORCED ON THUG AUTO BODY SHOP/DEALER PLACING JUNKED & UNLICENSED CARS ON STREETS/SIDEWALKS

abandon-cars-merrickDAY 4 and not one of the “powers that be” have answered the simple question about lack of enforcement (well in reality NO ENFORCEMENT) with auto body shops placing their junked and unlicensed vehicles all over public streets/sidewalks.

Yesterday (12.9.16) while driving to a Christmas party on Long Island on Merrick Blvd from Archer Avenue to the LI Border, I counted again well over 100 junked/unlicensed vehicles starting at the autobody shop south of the LIRR Tunnel at Merrick/Archer Ave, which had 6 junked/unlicensed vehicles on both the street and sidewalk (and a huge tractor trailer truck parked under the LIRR Tunnel) to a burnt out vehicle places on the medial strip on Merrick about a mile past Foch Blvd heading to Long Island. Of course the majority between Archer Avenue and 110th St. Since I was driving straight on Merrick I was not able to inspect on the sidestreets. Coming back home that same route at 10pm, several tractor trailer trucks & commercial trucks were illegally parked all over Merrick Blvd and two huge waste trucks like the one below were parked under the 168th LIRR Tunnel, blocking the one lane and because of no lights in that tunnel and the dark of night, we almost ran into the one huge truck. A very dangerous and ILLEGAL issue.

And so the Days of a simple unanswered question by the powers that be continues…………………………………. as NO RESPECT or PRIDE continues from our “so-called leaders” and those who serve to enforce the laws in the Dirty Southeast Queens.
