City Hall rally against Hollis homeless shelter
From DNA Info:
Jamaica residents and elected officials will rally outside City Hall Wednesday, hoping to apply pressure on the city to stop building homeless shelters in the neighborhood.
Twelve out of about two dozen shelters in Queens are located within Community Board 12, which covers Jamaica, Hollis, St. Albans and Springfield Gardens, according to Yvonne Reddick, the board's district manager.
The rally is being organized as homeless veterans have just started moving into a controversial complex on Hollis Avenue, between 202nd and 204th streets, according to CB12.
Everybody has to take a bite of the "Crap" sandwich!
The more "bread" you have the less Crap you have to eat...
at least they will feel better that they did something
but it is just a feeling and it'll go away
probably when the place opens
Homeless shelters belong in the ghetto. Less travel time for the incoming residents. Don't put it in MY neighborhood!
Sarc-ology is the truth.
I agree. No more shelters for the area. We need quality housing.
There is a ton of government money for the homeless business.
Why take the risk and less returns on "affordable" housing???
Yawn! Another city hall rally? Another social event.
They schedule these rallies by the hour.
Then there is the amateur act, if Mayor Duh Blah-Blah suddenly leaves city hall.
You'd get a better booking at the Apollo Theater.
Hollis....southeast Queens. Waddaya expect?
They gotta dump this kind of shit here because Bayside, Douglaston, Little Neck won't stand for it!
How about a shelter in Jamaica Estates? Totally out of the question!
Hollis is a red lined neighborhood.
Quality housing doesn't necessarily mean low-income housing.
The area needs homes that make the neighborhood look better not worse.
No more brick boxes with windows and cheap balconies!
"Quality" or "affordable" housing is just a euphemism for ramming a ghetto into your area.
Yeah...."affordable housing" is just Orwellian newspeak for getting screwed!
