Willets Point cleanup this Friday at 12 noon

WILLETS POINT UNITED TAKING MATTERS INTO THEIR OWN HANDS

SPONSORING CLEANUP ON FRIDAY, MARCH 27th AT NOON

Willets Point United Against Eminent Domain Abuse is organizing a cleanup of garbage dumped along the streets of Willets Point, Queens, beginning this Friday, March 27th at 12 noon. The trucks will start in front of Crown Container, 126-46 34th Avenue.

“The City of New York has refused to provide us with sanitation services for decades, despite the fact that each business here pays tens of thousands of dollars in taxes annually,” said Jerry Antonacci, President of Willets Point United.

“It’s a shame that we have to take matters into our own hands because of neglect by the City,” said Jake Bono, Spokesperson for Willets Point United. “We have been calling in dumping complaints for years, but the Department of Sanitation refuses to respond and clean up the mess.”

The property owners, business owners and workers of Willets Point will collect and dispose of the garbage.

Besides lack of sanitation, Willets Point does not have adequate sewers and there are hundreds of potholes that the City’s Department of Transportation refuses to repair. These conditions have caused the streets to become an eyesore, have made it difficult for the businesses to operate and have endangered people’s lives and property.

On November 13, 2008, the City Council approved a plan that would remove existing businesses from Willets Point and redevelop the 64-acre industrial site into a convention center, hotels, shops and housing to be built and owned by a private developer. The City has announced that it will use eminent domain to achieve possession, if necessary, and then turn the property over to the developer, who is yet to be chosen. Willets Point United Against Eminent Domain Abuse represents more than two dozen property owners who are fighting the City’s plan to acquire their property.

For up to date information about their fight, visit their blog at www.willetspoint.org.

business owners are suppose to hire a company to take their garbage. and from the looks of it, it seems to be their garbage. the city would do more maybe if they kept up with the property. the owners of the land know when they rent out the space their tenants have to keep it clean. thats the problem today the store or business are getting lazy and expects the city to clean up. they should clean it and maybe then the city could fix the sewers and roads. its been a junk yard for a long time and it's about time for change. maybe where ever they move to next they will keep the place in better shape.

"from the looks of it, it seems to be their garbage"

This looks like garbage dumped on a City-owned street to me. That's the City's responsibility.

Agree with the third poster. Are you supposed to get kudos for maintaining your property? This is expected and they should have done it long ago. If they were so concerned they could have formed a business improvements district and financed the clean up and maintanance of their area just like the business in times square do. In my neighborhood, we clean up the public park. Sure it may be someone else responsibility, but there comes a time where you can lead.

This is nothing but a political stunt.

YES THEY SOUND LIKE THEY RUN BUSINESS LIKE THE DEVELOPERS THAT PULL YOUR STRINGS.

I guess they should fill the potholes in themselves, too. Oh, if they did that the City would arrest them.

Good points # 3, 5 and 8

These tax cheats pollute their own neighborhood and expect the city to clean it up. And they Dont collect sales tax.

Ive been saying that for months. Stinking tax cheat polluters should be put in jail.

Queens Crapper said...

So you will punish the entire manufacturing sector because a few auto places don't collect sales tax? And if they haven't collected sales tax, why didn't the City do anything about it?

Wondering why more news stations don't pick up on this story.

After this spruce-up, I'd like to see flower boxes peppered throughout WP. Beautify it to the umpteenth degree and then invite the cameras in. Get a large vast area in the Point centrally located and plant (a la Michelle Obama) vegetable gardens. Grow some tomatoes lads! Be even more ecologically minded. The press eats this stuff up.

nothing can live int he iron triangle but a decrepit senile old man and illegal aliens coming from worse conditions south of the border.

Id like to see what grew in that toxic soup.

You guys should sue NYC for some back taxes for not getting your proper due of sanitation pick up services and lack of proper sewer system which you're probably paying sewer rental taxes for.

KICK SOME MORE ASS!

Ask Claire Shulman, looking more and more each day like "Jabba The Hut", why she refused to do anything about improving the services at Willets Point when was asked to do so
at a certain meeting many years ago!

Wasn't her answer something like,
"There's no money"?

Yeah....right!

Kiss my ass Claire but put a mask on first!

She's little more than a chronic and habitual liar!

Don't you love it.

That lard ass Toby's son has to police QC all day and counter post

I'm seeding you some papier de toilet Evan.

So...."Nothing can live in the iron triangle"?

She can share it her shady clubhouse sister Toby Stavisky!

This matters? I thought we lived in a sanctuary city. WP business owners should be held to a higher standard than those that will bulldoze their businesses? Hypocrites.

Evan has always struck me as a nasty adolescent snot

He'd be unelectable.

So this spoiled pudgy little mamma's boy retreats to a PC keyboard to crank out his cowardly drivel.....no balls.
