Hi there Crapper,
I am a Guyanese of Indian descent with a degree in Construction Management. I like your blog and I totally agree with the over development which is taking place, especially in the Richmond Hill/Ozone Park area where I live. I guess familiarity breeds contempt, I have the utmost contempt for the current crop of Guyanese (agricultural, low class, most coming illegally here and giving the Guyanese community a bad name as a whole.) When we came in the 70s we had to adapt and blend in, now the current crop does not have to blend and they carry on with the same nonesense they did back in Guyana and Trinidad. Check out my blog and website at the links below, it was focused on the building of a Stadium in Guyana for Cricket World Cup. The Government of Guyana is totally corrupt - taking loans from international orgs without the Guyanese people seeing anything in return as far as infrastructure development. That is why Guyanese are running away from the country by any means possible and finding themselves in Richmond Hill - causing overcrowding and over development.....some by unscrupulous means.
Here is another article I wrote under my Pen Name "Roy Bhusia" about Liberty Ave:
Need for free media in Richmond Hill
I checked out the blog, and saw this as a description: "Existing deficiencies in the urban centers of Guyana are deteriorated infrastructure, bad housing, and inadequate to nonexistent community services (poor sanitation and water supply, traffic congestion, unsatisfactory drainage, and unhealthy environment)."
Maybe he should also write a blog dedicated to Queens! This guy gets it.
