So let's take a look at the 3 nominees for today, Sunday, March 3rd:
1. 90-23, 90-25 170th Street. Owners: East Elmhurst Dev. Corp., Sharon Kahen, Chetra Shiwprasad. Not quite your typical low class apartment in Jamaica at first view, but a closer look at the front yard, which can be seen from the sidewalk and you will see garbage cans piled high with no lids, garbage strewn all over the yard around the area and a broken down fence. I have complained before about this eyesore, but it just continues and of course degrades further an otherwise degrading community.
2. 89-19 170th Street. Owners: Ent. Jamaica Realty, Enayet Hossain Gazi, Muhammad Gazi, Abdur Molla. Although the photo only shows one garbage can overflowing with no lid and other cans with no lids, in a few days this will be a mess. Have reported this eyesore quality type building many times. Not only is it an eyesore with the garbage, but has no Certificate of Occupancy (and how can that be), several violations, including an illegal apartment in the basement and cramming as many people in as a pinata filled with candy.
3. AND NOW THE WINNER of the low class ghetto property owner award, drum roll please.........ta da............. The honorable Michael Bloomberg and the City of New York's , the New York City Department of Transportation Vehicle Processing Property (NYCDOT). This huge piece of property located at 92-33 168th Street directly across from the Home Depot, is a major eyesore to all that go by it and it is in plain view for all to see. I had reported this property during the summer and even the Public Advocacy office came out and took pictures.
Garbage thrown all over the place, garbage cans overflowing, even a Donate Your Car sign attached to the one fence, all under the watchful eyes of the city, who should be leading by example and not leading by example of that disgraced former Senator Shirley Huntley. Michael Bloomberg and company, you should bow your heads down in disgrace that this property looks like one big piece of shit. We are attempting to clean up our community and our own city is a big culprit in the garbage mess here in Jamaica. GOOD WORK! Hey Bloomy, I wonder if you allow this to happen at Gracie Mansion or City Hall. I think you need to get a broom and shovel, hop on the E train and bring Christine Quinn and clean this shit up.
So The Honorable Michael Bloomberg and the NYCDOT, you win the low class ghetto award, a fake hollow sterling silver 12 inch statue (made in China) of an individual next to a garbage can throwing down a big chicken thigh bone with a 2 litter bottle of Pepsi on a clean sidewalk while his pit bull takes a huge dump that does not get picked up.
Ah, just another typical average Sunday morning stroll in Jamaica. And it was only about 6 blocks.
