I head out my building walking down 170th Street towards Jamaica Avenue and have to pick up a small bag of garbage filled with all kinds of fast food crap that some low class slob dumped in front of the empty lot next to me owned by some low class third world immigrant slob. Great way to start the morning and of course the huge box of industrial fluorescent lights are still in the empty lot along with the high weeds that are getting higher every day and coming out onto the sidewalk. Even though I reported this over a week ago, THREE TIMES, nothing has changed.
Huge box of over a dozen industrial fluorescent lights that were dumped into this lot at 170th St/ 90th Ave over a week ago and still lying there. It has been reported three times: told a sanitation officer the first day I saw it, called DOS and filed a 311 report and let our elected officials know. NOTHING DONE.As I turn right onto Jamaica Avenue off 170th Street into a pretty disgusting nasty block, I encounter this mess on the sidewalk.
Another fucking beauty supply store going to open on Jamaica Avenue right across from a huge beauty supply store already in place. That brings the count up to 10 of these places on Jamaica Ave.Really, this is “Jamaica Revealed”, another fucking beauty supply store on Jamaica Avenue. There is already a huge one directly across the street that just opened up not too long ago.
This place which opened not too long ago is directly across from the new place which is opening soon.Is this what is meant by “Diverse and Vibrant” that I keep hearing all of our elected officials and business leaders saying. Ten huge beauty supply stores on Jamaica Avenue and about 10 more on the side streets does not say “Diverse and Vibrant”, it says “laundering dirty money”. Am I the only one that gets that. There are not enough people in Jamaica to sustain that amount of beauty supplies stores. Oh well, depression is really setting in, so I pop into my gym, Blink (actually a great addition to Jamaica Ave) to work out my frustration.
Leaving the gym to pick up my dry cleaning on Hillside Avenue, my depression begins to sink further as I walk this stretch of low class third world immigrant crap and garbage.
Not much different from this scene from an actual third world country:
Now back to our third world country, along Hillside Avenue.
Speaking of apathy, if you did not sign my petition to some of our elected officials including Governor Cuomo (http://petitions.moveon.org/
“Jamaica Revealed” my ass, morning walk showed the “Real Jamaica Revealed”, not the “Make Believe Jamaica Revealed”. Wow, some of you are as bad as the Republicans who live in the bubble.
