Richmond Hill






AND this is what is wrong with Jamaica and why Jamaica will continue to go down hill and the quality of life which just get worse. AND this is also what is wrong with the Queens Democratic Machine, they don’t care about communities (well at least certain communities) and their constituents. When corrupt Ruben Wills (City Council District #28) was on trial for corruption, Congressman Gregory Meeks and the crooked Queens Democratic Machine still backed him. Now that Wills is heading to prison, all of a sudden the Machine needed a new puppet to throw into the mix, which several folks were already candidates for the seat. City Council District 28 Richard David, Democrat Allan W. Jennings, Democrat Hettie V. Powell, Democrat Christina Winslow, Democrat BUT see the crooked Queens Democratic Machine does not want competition or fresh blood, they want puppets to control and so they are plopping up Community Board 12 President Adrienne Adams. I mean why did Adams NOT throw her name into the hat before, knowing full well that Wills has been a total do-nothing and fraud. NO, they wait till their other puppet, Wills, got convicted and then scrambled for a replacement puppet. This is the same bull with Adams and the Machine that happened last year, when she ran against state Sen. James Sanders Jr. (D-South Ozone Park) in the 10th Senate Democratic primary, whom the Machine did not back. She jumped into the race when Sanders announced his intention to go against Gregory Meeks in the 5th Congressional District. Sanders eventually dropped the bid, but Adams won the party’s endorsement. In the September primary, however, Sanders defeated Adams by 15 points and coasted to re-election in November. So now we have the similar bull playing all over again. Adams stated: “Community and service are not empty words, but are the principles that have guided my life,” Adams said in a statement issued by her campaign. “As I campaign to represent the people of the 28th Council District, I am proud to have the support of Congress Members Crowley and Meeks, and look forward to partnering with them and my many friends in the City Council to improve the economic opportunity, transportation options, and overall quality of life in Rochdale, Jamaica, Richmond Hill and South Ozone Park.” BUT ADRIENNE, if you wanted to represent the people, why didn’t you put your name in the hat, when crooked and do nothing Wills was on the ballot and was not on trial yet. See, this does not bode well and sounds way too “political”. If you have such best interests in the community, why didn’t you put your name on the ballot then. BECAUSE you did not want to go against that crooked Queens Dem Machine, who was backing Wills at the time. Crowley stated” “The people of Queens deserve honest representation and a City Council member who will fight tirelessly for the best interests of the community. Adrienne Adams has proven time and again that she knows what this community needs and how to build the coalitions necessary to improve the quality of life in our neighborhoods. I’m proud to support her campaign for City Council.” BUT when do nothing and crooked Wills was still on the ballot, you backed him Crowley, you did not put up Adams, so Crowley, YOU and the CROOKED QUEENS DEM MACHINE do not have the best interests of the community or the constituents (which look at what Jamaica looks like, that tells the REAL STORY), because if you really did, you would NEVER have backed the incumbent Wills from the get go, knowing full well he had DONE NOTHING for the community and his past was extremely shady. Now while I feel that Adams really does care about this community and wants to do everything she can to help improve it, this whole thing smells too much of typical politics where the community and constituents take a backseat so that the Queens Dem Machine can always stay in power and keep new and fresh blood out of the picture, while they CONTROL ALL. THAT IS NOT DEMOCRACY. You are just taking a page out of the playbook of the person you all constantly criticize, TRUMP. AND so the Jamaica clown car circus and good ole boys club continues while the Jamaica community continues to suffer and quality of life in this community continues its down-slide. BUT people in that district, you still have the FINAL SAY SO. Don’t let the bully Queens Democratic Machine dictate for you. It did not work last time and Sanders won his seat by a large margin. AND I will say this to Senator James Sanders, Jr., at least he does not bow down to the Queens Democratic Machine. Sanders is actually endorsing Hettie Powell, going against the machine again. Good for him. BOY, the stench of MENDACITY fills the community of Jamaica and the Queens Borough. In the meantime, crime is still rampant, the community is looking like "homeless village thanks to over 26 homeless shelters dumped here, Royal Waste Dump, in the downtown area, continue to pollute and cause major truck issues, our parks have turned into outdoor homeless shelters while the crazies, mentally ill, drug addicts and criminals roam the streets posing safety risks (the horrific gang rape of a mother of two this months proves this), continuous illegal truck driving on residential streets, garbage & litter on every single block and the quality of life, which has gotten worse in the last 6 months continues to go down hill. In the meantime, the Queens Dem Machine plays a deadly game of political chess where the tax payers are the pawns. https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/



Another crook down..100s to go


As Kool and The Gang sang: CELEBRATE!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GwjfUFyY6M YES VIRGINIA, THERE REALLY IS A SANTA CLAUS. F**K YEAH. Cry baby a-hole Ruby Wills is going to jail and it could not have happened to a bigger a-hole. Wills who can get up to 7 years in prison is automatically expelled from City Council. Hell, when City Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito says: “Ruben Wills betrayed the trust of all New Yorkers when he abused his position in the State Senate to steal thousands of dollars from the hardworking taxpayers of New York for his own selfish gain.” YOU KNOW IT IS BAD. So long a-hole, you probably made my blog more than any other a-hole Jamaica elected official. THANKS for the memories! So know that brings the count up to FIVE of the number of a-hole crooked Jamaica Queens elected officials sent to jail in the last few years. AND speaking of the other a-holes, are we now going to hear from the local elected officials like Comrie and Meeks on this ——’s sentence. AND how about the Queens Democratic Party which was backing him even when he was on trial. SO LET’S HEAR IT AGAIN ONE MORE TIME: CELEBRATE! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GwjfUFyY6M https://cleanupjamaicaqueens.wordpress.com/

Select BS is going to create more gridlock for everyone including bus riders. Stealing traffic lanes, left turns, bus stops, speed limits, parking and putting bus riders on snowy medians is a recipe for disaster. It's time to get rid of Mayor Zero Vision and Select BS. Who ever our new Mayor is better reopen our roadways, railways, waterways and bring back our bus stops and speed limits. Queens needs faster and safer transportation not lies, gridlock and tickets. Say goodbye Mayor Chaos. Support the Queens Public Transit Committee at 718-679-5309 or www.qptc.org or PhilAMcManus@gmail.com

By right the community should be upset, but we should do our part to have supportive services for those in need in the neighborhood. NYC is slow to adopt supportive housing models, even CB9 isn't too much in favor of them. I've seen homeless individuals along Jamaica Ave near Lefferts and on Hillside Ave. The only place they can go to in our community is the public library which I know the staff and managers have a hard time dealing with on a daily basis. So please let's keep an open mind and help these individuals in the community.

2017: The year that will be determine which project(s) will be the winner(s) and which one(s) will be the loser(s): Either the Queensrail, the Queensway, the SBS, or the NIMBYs?






Not surprising the more African Americans moving to ozone park area the more you read about crime occurring. Please keep bad people out of ozone park




Terrible crime in beautiful ozone park I live there and always feel safe. Now this summer moe crimes are occurring really sad and concerning. Muslims are beautiful people and in ozone park we have every culture and religion. I hope this criminal is found and the brings ozone park closer together.

This is just one horrible violent act/killing out of several that has been happening frequently in SE Queens. Between all this violence/killing and the dumping of many homeless shelters all over Queens (many residents who have criminal records), where is our wonderful borough president Melinda Katz. Have not heard a peep out of this political hacks on both these issues.





Sick sick people. I live on 101 street and this is sad to hear our neighborhood is full of beautiful kind families of all walks of ethnicity, cultures and various religions. Ozone park look after one another.




There's an interesting follow on to the subject of predictive policing and crime analytics at https://fightfinancialcrimes.com/2016/07/13/police-data-beyond-black-and-white/

I taught at Richmond Hill HS from 1977 until I retired in 2004. Computer labs were established in the mid 1980's. The Hill is over a hundred years old and has a very rich history. There are a lot of Hill retirees around, and we remember the "firsts"





Great for my generation with technology; even better for the homeless while thinking that these newer buses are like the second home to them.

Third paragraph, I can only assume you mean to say the street on Metropolitan Ave between 130th and 131st will be turned into an eastbound one way street, because that's the only way it makes sense to me.

There is nothing 'miraculous' about this. The poor child was abandoned by his mother who chose a church as a safe haven for the child to be discovered and cared for.
