Maybe the fucking city needs to do another fucking study, this time, why city agencies and workers are complete morons and never use good old fashion common sense.
Case in point, Jamaica resident and community activist Pamela Hazel, has mentioned NUMEROUS times over the last couple years of the garbage strewn mosquito watering hole cesspool that I guess is a downtown Jamaica tourist attraction on the sidewalk of Archer and Parsons in front of the murals. It seems at some time, but I certainly do not remember, that this cesspool was actually a tree pit with an actual tree (probably dead from the get go when the city did it’s waste of tax payer’s money on the 1 million tree planting under Bloomberg, but forgot one important component, MAINTENANCE.
A year ago, same fucking problem with no fucking solution to a simple fucking problem.
So for years, a sad little stump sat in the middle of “PARCHER POND”, while it would fill up with rain and become a breeding ground for mosquitoes and of course a place to dump garbage by low-class ghetto slobs. So what is a city agency and worker to do, well, either NOTHING (most of the time) or on occasion “drain the swamp”, but only until the next rainfall.
The common sense approach, plant a tree (but only if it will be maintained) or fill that damn spot in with cement, but then that would mean some actual thought would have to been implemented.
So for the time being, it is now water, garbage and mosquito free, BUT, now it is an accident waiting to happen for someone to trip over this on this very busy sidewalk in front of York College.
NO FUCKING COMMON SENSE and NO DAMN PRIDE of any kind in the Jamaica community. As I said in that most fucked up Community Board 12 transportation meeting the other night that I attended, “When it comes to, there is no actual kind of planning, it is just throw shit against the wall and see what sticks.”
Christ, don’t any of these local elected officials every walk around the downtown area AND speaking of the downtown area, both the Jamaica Greater Development Corporation AND Jamaica BID folks are right there, you mean they NEVER see shit like this or all the other SHIT when they are out and about or 1) they do not give a FUCK and are only collecting a hefty paycheck, 2) are totally incompetent or 3) this is the look they are going for in Jamaica, GHETTO CHIC TRASH.

From Pamela Hazel, Jamaica resident & community activist:
Cesspool breeding ground cleanish.
Well, since my report about two weeks ago, the Zika infested cesspool on Archer Avenue near Parson’s Boulevard has been cleaned. However, it was a botched job, yes because this is a black neighbourhood. This inferior cleaning will not stand a chance in Katz’s domain. To start with, a cesspool
will not exist in Forest Hills. Nonetheless, it is an improvement, but certainly not acceptable. Boranian, you are in charge of constituents service in Borough President/Katz’s office. You and your boss are responsible for widespread, quality-of-life terrorism in Jamaica Queens. Can you please contact the persons responsible for this inferior act, so-called a job? It needs to be done properly.
By the way, we do not want favours. Your black voters need to be treated with respect and dignity. The same treatment afforded to
your voters in Forest Hills and other privileged areas. Boranian, remember that you are a well paid employee. Do your damn job.
