Sightseeing in Flushing

10 AM Roosevelt Ave. Flushing.
This one is still asleep or drunk.
He doesn't feel a thing despite the highly uncomfortable position he's in.

10 AM Lippman Arcade Flushing.
Slobs enjoying a late breakfast.
Rats will savor their trash.

I'll complete the Kevku®:

Please make them leave

I go up through Lippman Plz AKA "Bomber's Alley" it is the pigeons that will benefit from what those idiots leave behind.

Since it probably came from the McDonalds right there, -they- should make an effort to at least clean up the trash with their name on it.

Yes, there have always been, and always will be slobs and assholes who leave trash. That's not gonna change, right? Haven't businesses always been responsible for keeping their sidewalks clean? Did that law change? I didn't think so.

And Marilyn Bitterman, district manager of CB#7, is earning about $120+ a year.

WTF does she do besides
kiss Wellington Chen's ass?

Yes...let's bring tourism to Floo-shing...LOL!

Toby-Man Stashitsky can be the spokeswoman.

What are you talking about? It isn't Flushing any more. It's Flooshing! Pretty soon you'll be asked for a passport to enter the area. Thanks to all of the elected officials to allow for the downgrade in that community.

the top picture reminds me of certain areas in the populated city of Hong Kong which I visited.. where you see some people just sleep on the city's bench.

Does anyone else remeber stepping over the sleeping vagrants on the sidewalk in the middle of the day on Roosevelt Ave in the late 70s / early 80s? It wasn't as crowded then and the subway didn't have entrances by Lippmann so there was more room to climb over them.

You want to see filth and vagrants?, come to far rockaway

Let's hire Disney to build a replica of the "Great Wall" around Flushing and turn it into a "Little China" theme park.

At least it would be clean.

Now that's an attraction that would bring in tourism...LOL!

I avoid the
downtown Flushing hub at any cost.

the LIRR whisks me right past it.

Only 23 minutes from Broadway
into Manhattan.

What's on Main Street that's superior to what I can't get in "The City"?

I just love being able to be a snob.

All the cops on footposts work nights. How about once in a while they work days/late afternoons? Let the savages that inhabit the night fend for themselves!

Where do you see cops on foot patrol around that area at night?

I don't.
Come through at 12:00 midnight.

No boys in blue to be seen...just gypsy cabs honking their horns at the bus stop looking for business.

You only see cops during the day
when school lets out.

Then they vanish to Dunkin Donuts.

I love watching the pigeons fly off with mouth fulls of low mein noodles left behind in the tree wells.

The rotting chow fun remains there for the rodents consumption...too heavy for flight.

where's Peter Koo...getting his knob polished at the offices of the Queens Tribune?
