Queens Is Still Burning And More Housing Insecure

Jackson Heights, Queens, New York

Queens Post

An eight-alarm fire that tore through a Jackson Heights apartment building Tuesday night has left hundreds homeless and resulted in 25 people being injured.

The fire started inside an apartment located at 89-07 34th Ave. shortly after 1 p.m. and quickly spread throughout the building. By 8 p.m., it had been upgraded to an eight alarm blaze, with more than 350 firefighters and EMS personnel at the scene.

Firefighters were finally able to get the fire under control at 12:07 a.m., but the flames damaged the majority of the 133-unit building, a FDNY spokesperson said.

“It took the department eight alarms and almost 12 hours to place the fire under control, working inside [and] outside, causing many injuries to our members and some injuries to civilians,” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said at the scene this morning.

In total, 19 firefighters and six civilians were injured. None of the injuries were life-threatening, the spokesperson said.

The flames spread throughout the building since the occupants of the apartment where the fire started left their front door open. Furthermore, they waited 10 minutes before calling 911, Nigro said.

The apartment was on the top floor of the six-story building.

The flames broke out at around 1 p.m. Tuesday on the sixth floor of the 133-unit building at 89th Street and 34th Avenue. Nearly two dozen people were injured, and the building was gutted.

Martin Barrera said she grew up there with his mother.

“Twenty-three years in an apartment, you settle. There’s something in there that belongs to you, and it’s called your home,” he told CBS2. “For them, this is all they had. It’s not some, or, you know, I can go move somewhere. It’s all they had.”

“We’re all reeling from this. Kids don’t have clothes, we’re completely empty, we have nothing,” said Andrew Sokolof Diaz, founder of the Tenant’s Association.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but officials said it began inside a sixth-floor apartment. Officials said there was a 10-minute delay in calling 911 after residents smelled smoke.

“People smell smoke, they notify someone else other than us, ‘I think I smell smoke.’ You smell smoke, call the fire department,” FDNY Commissioner Daniel Nigro said.

Investigators also believe the resident left the door open as they ran to safety, allowing the flames to spread into the hallway and then overhead into the cockloft.

Queens Post:

Jackson Heights community members are now organizing efforts to help the 130 families — more than 400 people in total, according to organizers — who lived in the building and have been displaced.

A GoFundMe page was set up for the families by one of the organizers of a local LGBTQ-run food pantry called “Love Wins” and it has raised more than $100,000 in just 13 hours.

“A community made up of majority low-income, working class, immigrant essential workers, already experiencing the aftermath of COVID-19 are now without their homes,” Daniel Puerto wrote in the description of the GoFundMe.

“It’s hard to express the deep sadness we felt tonight as we looked into our neighbors eyes and asked how we could help,” Puerto added.

 

When Mayor de Blasio gets done trying to produce the recovery of all of us by emceeing performance arts venues in Brooklyn and Lincoln Center, maybe some time can be dedicated for his Housing Preservation and Development and Human Resources Administration to make sure these 400 residents who have had their lives upended from getting disenfranchised from their homes and belongings and make sure the owners of this complex, KEDEX PROPERTIES LLC, renovates and restores these apartments as quickly as possible.

And since there is still not much known about how this inferno started, right at the start of the afternoon no less, let’s be positively certain that when this LLC decides to demolish these actual affordable housing buildings and build some garishly designed tower they better let these residents that got displaced be allowed to return without any conditions. Instead of letting more low income people become gentrification collateral damage.

And since these working poor people are in dire need of housing now, surely there are other places to shelter for the time being until they get their homes back.

Since this recovery is supposed be for all of us.

Unless there are some exceptions, right Blaz?

 

Update:

On the day 3 since the displacement inferno in Jackson Heights, The Blaz preferred to go to Luna Park and ride the Cyclone with his entire staff of minions and Senator Chuck Schumer, along with a smattering of essential workers as a token gesture of equity. They were the only ones there at the amusement park’s first opening in over a year.

This bum doesn’t have the decency or even the courage to face the essential workers who got evicted from a devastating fire.

de Blasio is literally fiddling with himself and throwing circuses while the city burns.

Bastard.

The cops tore up the woman’s nephew’s bedroom wall and  found was about a few grams of weed. This means the NYPD are still using the same policing method that killed Breonna Taylor a year ago and did this right when Albany was in the well-publicized process of legalizing pot.

In South Jamaica, two homeless men living in a hotel homeless shelter got into a brawl at a park across the street, leading to one of them getting stabbed to death and also a security guard from the hotel getting stabbed twice when he tried to stop the fight.

In Pomonok, an argument between two men over an available apartment held at an open house sale escalated when one of them took out a gun and shot the other in the ass. Wonder if the apartment was one of those “affordable” ones.

On Rikers Island, a convict who previously served time for killing two men and was awaiting trial for a  shooting murder a few months earlier was set free from a clerical error following a court hearing where he cursed out a judge and he was released after the time on the contempt charge got served. The fugitive did not have bail set for him because of the severity of his crime. Corrections sat on this horrifying information for 12 hours before they notified de Blasio’s NYPD. A deputy warden and four C.O.s got suspended for the drastic miscue.

A week later, another murder suspect was set free from Rikers because of another clerical error that stemmed from reducing the bail for a felony gun possession charge to $1.00 and classifying his felony murder charge as ROR, Allowing him to get Released from the prison On his own Recognizance. Fortunately for the city and society, the felon turned himself.

The other suspected killer fugitive is still running free despite de Blasio’s confidence about his recapture.

Also on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error. The convict is also COVID-19 positive and took the metrocard and took NYC Transit and the LIRR home to his sister’s house in Suffolk. Even though he’s supposed to remain in quarantine under captivity for another week.

Again on Rikers Island, two inmates associated with the Bloods got into a brawl inside their cell then they both attacked and beat down a C.O. when he tried to break them up.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate was found dead with his head jammed inside a handcuff port outside of a clinical room and another inmate committed suicide by hanging himself in his cell with a linen cloth.

And again on Rikers Island, a C.O. got into a fight with two of his supervising officers who were trying to force him to work a third shift at the prison after they shut the cage on him when he was trying to go home.

And again on Rikers Island, 13 inmates from the Bloods engaged in five attacks on 11 C.O.’s in a 7 day span starting with two gangbangers attacked a C.O. inciting a prison riot that led to 4 C.O.’s. Another ambush got initiated when one of the prisoners accessed a control room and opened the doors for his fellow inmates, giving them the opportunity to beat the shit out of 4 C.O.’s.

And again on Rikers Island, a prisoner serving time for avoiding to pay over $85,000 in child support got mistakenly released on a clerical error. The convict is also COVID-19 positive and took the metrocard and took NYC Transit and the LIRR home to his sister’s house in Suffolk. Even though he’s supposed to remain in quarantine under captivity for another week.

Has de Blasio, Speaker Cojo and the NY Council fauxgressive cronies ever given the thought that the reason Rikers is making C.O.’s work triple shifts is because solitary confinement has been cancelled and the only way to tamp down violence and keep order is to keep C.O.’s on duty for every minute and second that way they can justify these new supposed progressive policies? Even though it’s clearly not working? Even Jeff Bezos lets his Amazon FFC employees go home.

And while this FUBAR management is going on at Rikers, where is the NYC Jails Commissioner? Whose conspicuous absence after de Blasio put her on medical leave following the release of a fugitive killer that’s still on the loose has made her virtually unobtainable for comment?

Manhattan

In Hell’s Kitchen, a man looked directly at a 65-year-old woman walking on the sidewalk and kicked her in the chest and then stomped on her head three more times as she lied on the pavement in front of luxury apartment building, as the doorman closed the door as she writhed in pain on the ground while the man yelled at her that she didn’t belong here because of her race, which he presumed was Chinese, but she was really a Philipino woman. When the coast was clear, two building employees went outside and aided the woman although the NYPD said that no 911 calls were made after the attack despite the luxury building owners claims. The lunatic then threatened another man with a knife who tried to stop him from getting away according to a witness. 

The man got arrested at a hotel homeless shelter in 3 blocks south from where he pummeled the woman in broad daylight. The city placed him at that hotel after he served a 17-year-sentence for murdering his mother by stabbing her in the chest three times with a kitchen knife at her home in the Bronx. He was released on parole in late 2019 after being rejected two times the prior two years.

This barbaric attack was enough to garner enough local and national media  for Mayor de Blasio to give a token condemnation for violence towards Asian people, which exceedingly rose in the city he runs after he announced an undercover cop task force to catch bias violence against Asians in the act and demanded his constituents to report people even on the presumption they said slurs resembling bigotry against Asians. Which shows that everything the Blaz touches to try to stem crises of any kind, he exacerbates them

The psycho is now incarcerated and denied bail.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, during a Black Lives Matter protest, a man got his face lacerated when a demonstrator smashed the plexiglass window of a restaurant shanty while he was eating.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a man ran down the sidewalk and clotheslined a 73-year-old to the pavement in broad daylight.

 

In Harlem, a man brutally beat his 10-year-old stepson to death inside their apartment at the St. Nicholas’ Houses. On the day before the murder, cops were sent to the building to respond to a 911 call describing a man yelling threats and banging on a wall When they arrived to the source of the disturbance, they waited in a hallway and left after 12 minutes after allegedly not hearing anything and getting a voicemail trying to contact the person who notified them. The next time the NYPD sent cops to return to the building to investigate another domestic violence call, the boy was lying dead in a bathtub hours after his stepfather threatened to beat him worse than he did the day before.

During the boy’s life, the NYC ACS were regular visitors to this household, as early as when he was a baby when his mother was charged for neglect. His stepfather had prior  domestic violence arrests for beating up his mother and also assaulted another woman in front of her 3 kids. The autopsy of his final beating of his stepson found internal injuries to his organs and broken ribs.

Also in Harlem, a man shot at two men inside a bodega after he accused them of starting at him and when one of them threw a tin dish of food he was eating at him. Then the gunman and his friend rode away on scooters.

The man then took some clothes of his and ran out into the streets while the cop he pummelled has to eat and drink through a straw until his broken jaw heals. Where the fuck is Thrive, Co-Mayor Chirlie?

Again in East Harlem, two gang members got shot in the middle of the street.

And again in East Harlem, a man shot another man to death on a street corner,  then he got into a car with another man and fled the scene of the murder. Then they were pursued by the cops who heard the shots nearby and got into a high speed chase with them on the FDR drive. The two men abandoned the car in Midtown and fled on foot. The cops managed to arrest the passenger but not the driver and found the murder weapon on the ground.

And again in East Harlem, an app-food delivery man got shot to death in a playground after he tried to stop his killer from stealing his e-bike while he was about to eat lunch. Robberies of ebikes have seen a massive surge during the year long pandemic, mostly off of gig working undocumented immigrants who make about 60 bucks a day and are usually too scared to go to the cops to report them stolen, making them easy prey for lowlife thieves. For some reason, the delivery guys have to purchase their own bikes even though they work for tech companies that make billions of dollars and don’t pay as much taxes as regular businesses in the city.

In Midtown, a man driving a commercial van blacked out and rear-ended another car and caused it to crash into a restaurant shanty, the van driver then collided into a fruit stand set up under a building scaffold. Two children, an elderly man, a fruit stand worker and 3 other people got injured during the melee.

A man who threw a bottle of bleach at the cops and then ran away to the Bryant Park station.

And again in Midtown, two men made off with a bag of $8,000 in fresh bills that was left on top an ATM machine by a security guard at a bank.

And again in Midtown, a homeless man stole a bakery van while a 15-year-old boy was sitting inside and drove it on the sidewalk and crashed it into a building scaffold because he thought someone was going to shoot him. During the manic theft, the delivery man wound up breaking his legs after he held onto the door to stop the lunatic.

And again in Midtown, a man got hit with a stray bullet when someone involved in rumble on the street between rival gangs decided to settle it with a gun.

And again in Midtown, a woman threw an Asian woman to the pavement and punched and yelled at her.

And again in Midtown at the 51 St./Lexington Ave. Station, a xenophobic man punched a woman in the face on the 6 train and also called her a slur, blamed her for the pandemic and demanded her to go back to China.

And again in Midtown, a man tried to scale a too big to fail bank building during a protest in front of it and then fell on his ass and broke his pelvis and a can of black spray paint. The injured protester is a small business owner.

And again in Midtown, a man got caught shoplifting in 7/11 by a worker and he punched him in the face and called him a bigoted slur.

In Times Square,  a trash can on a subway mezzanine was set on fire and exploded as a cop was about to take a peek at it and as a woman and her two children passed by.

Also in Times Square, a man beaten and strangled his girlfriend to death inside a hotel homeless shelter after 2 years of abusing her and using her government financial aid to spend lavishly on booze and drugs. The man had 15 prior arrests, his most recent one in February when he beat the shit out of his father while he was sleeping in his bed and then stomped on him with his boots and and evaded arrest even when he kicked in the door of his late girlfriend’s mother’s apartment and wanted to freeload because police couldn’t do anything because she didn’t want him to leave.

Kayla Estevez and her boyfriend, Ernest Wright, are pictured in an undated photo. Estevez is shown with a black eye in this photo, which her family claims was the result of domestic violence.

Her boyfriend claimed she crushed her larynx by herself. The woman suffered from bipolar disorder and her brother’s repeated calls for help to city government agencies to get help for her were for naught. So where the fuck was Thrive, @NYCFirstLady?

Again in Times Square, a man yelled a sexist insult and xenophobic slurs at a woman and told her children that she was going to kill them. Then the lunatic smacked the phone out of her hand as she was filming him and kicked it onto the tracks.

In Greenwich Village, an app-hail driver got held up at knife point had his bag containing his wallet robbed and his car partition damaged by a man and a woman he tried to kick out of his car for not wearing masks.

And again in Downtown Manhattan at the Oculus, a woman running for city council got attacked by a woman and fought her off on the staircase. I have to remind you that she’s an Asian-American woman and she’s going to walk instead to get around the city she wants to represent.

And again in Downtown Manhattan, a homeless man suddenly charged a couple walking with their 1-year-old son in his stroller by Battery Park and slashed both of them and then slashed the toddler on his lip. The assailant previously served time for attempted murder. During the remote court hearing, the goon didn’t seem to give a shit about being convicted again.

And again in Downtown Manhattan, a man committed suicide by jumping from the Staten Island Ferry into the East River.

In Times Square at the 42nd. St. Station, a man killed himself jumping in front of the arriving A train.

In Murray Hill, a 92-year-old man got killed by a hit-and-run driver while he was crossing the street.

In the Upper West Side, three men jumped out of a car and jumped a woman walking on the sidewalk and robbed her purse. Then the goons went east on 65th st to the Upper East Side and did the same thing to two other women.

On the last New Bad Days post, Mayor de Blasio was questioned by CBS New York’s Marcia Kramer about the undeniable subway violence crisis that has gripped the city and flat out denied it, while using his talent with words to passively aggressively insinuate that she was fomenting fear and reinforcing lies. And in the process of that response, told thousands of commuters that they were only imagining the proliferation of random attacks, street fighting, muggings and even attacks on police officers that were occurring and accounted on the news and social media postings.

The arrogant mayor mused aloud:

“We had an incredible and total disruption in 2020. Our entire lives were turned upside down, a global pandemic, a perfect storm – and we are in the process of overcoming that,”

Exactly a week later, the unthinkable, mostly to the willfully disconnected mind of The Blaz, happened in the most horrific and bloodiest weekend on mass transit in decades.

In Far Rockaway at the Mott Ave. Station, a man was found dead on the A train  with stab wounds all over his neck and chest, looking like he was slaughtered while he was sleeping on the seats. Hours later in Inwood at the 207th Station, a woman was also butchered to death on the A train. Both murders tragically took place at the last stops of the A line.

Other bloody random attacks occurred prior and after the slaughters at the 181 St. Station in Washington Heights on the same A transit line. Just before noon, a disabled 67-year-old homeless man got stabbed twice by a man on the platform when his assailant announced he was going to kill him and another man got stabbed twice while he was sleeping on the stairwell. Both victims survived.

All of the victims were homeless.

The killer, dubbed the “A Train Ripper” by the NY Post (which didn’t catch on) and got arrested later in the early evening after a massive NYPD deployment when cops found him on the street covered in blood and possessing a 6-inch knife with the handle wrapped in a bandanna. The man confessed to both homicides and the 2 other random attacks

Like his victims, the culprit was also homeless and living in a shelter in Gowanus. He was also mentally disturbed and had prior arrests, recently when he was caught on the streets possessing a knife and baggies of cocaine last October. A few days before the random attacks and office, the city gave him a housing voucher and he visited his sister in Washington Heights to help him move, but went on a homicidal violent rage for in a 12 hour span on the A train instead.

Despite safety net aid from the city and many chances from his family, the culprit could not be saved. And his victims as well, for they chose to chance sleeping on the subway instead of city shelters, on the general presumption that they are safer down there.

After much outcry, confirmed and established fears from commuters and kin of the victims of subway violence, and the expected overdue reaction to only respond to an emergency when deaths occur, de Blasio finally ordered the NYPD to deploy 644 cops to the transit system even if in the deep recesses of his mind he still believes all these attacks are only anecdotes. But it’s not just him. The longest interim president (or interim president of anything) of NYC Transit “Train Nanny” Sarah Feinberg still proclaims the subway is still safe to use and like the Blaz, accused local news of hyperbole in their coverage of the chaos on the rails and platforms that are scaring commuters into riding bikes and driving cars instead, even though she believes and has demanded that the subway needs a thousand more cops to make commuting safe again.

It’s this duplicity exhibited by both the Mayor and Feinberg that will not ameliorate  the random and intentional acts of violence underground and on the Els nor will it instill confidence amongst citizens to bring subway ridership back to even a quarter of pre-pandemic levels. Not to mention to continuing perpetual failure of the city’s homeless and mental health services  that’s another long sorry ass story).

But at least we can pay the fare with our cellphones…

State Senator Ramos Used Community Fridge Funding For Herself And Her Entourage

East Elmhurst, Queens, New York

The pandemic of 2020-2021 has brought out the best in people, but also the worst and most depraved. Sadly, the case here involves the community refrigerators set up in areas in the 5 boroughs, where perishable food donations are stored for the city’s neediest. At the beginning of the new year in one of the highest zip codes hit by coronavirus in NE Queens, a refrigerator set up by a state senator’s office was thoroughly destroyed and robbed of all it’s food.

Sen. Jessica Ramos went on a social media blitz to bring attention to this shamelessly crude vandalism. All local network news stations, newspapers, regional weeklies and online local news blogs gave it the collective attention it warranted. It also warranted outrage, which was achieved quite easily on Ramos’s twitter feed.

Also achieved quite easily was donations for the refrigerators replacement and the costs for the food that was lost, as Ramos’s followers and even elected officials wanted to contribute to the cause, as Sen. Ramos tweeted a URL to fundraising PAC website ACT BLUE.

A month later, there was a follow up to this story when it turned out that people gave $35,000 to Sen. Ramos to replace the refrigerator and for more food aid. But what should have been a feel good story in trouble times turned out to be the samo shit that politicians do.

NY Daily News

A Queens politician who raised more than $35,000 to replace a vandalized community refrigerator accepted the contributions through her campaign account, raising questions about the transparency of her charity effort.

When a fridge providing free food to the hungry outside state Sen. Jessica Ramos’s East Elmhurst office was damaged last month, the outcry was loud and contributions to replace it poured in quickly.

“The community fridge outside our district office was vandalized and destroyed last night. So many of our neighbors depend on the generosity of other neighbors to get through these difficult times. Now this lifeline is gone. I’m heartbroken,” Ramos tweeted Jan. 2., garnering coverage from multiple news outlets.

In a follow-up tweet, the Democrat included a link to accept contributions, explaining, “We’re going to need your help to keep our community fridge project going. Any little bit helps! 100% of your donations will keep our fridge stocked for our neighbors.”

But the link took visitors to an ActBlue page for her campaign account. The page, since taken down, stated, “All proceeds from this link will go directly to keeping the refrigerator stocked for our neighbors in need.” Above boxes used for specifying the amount of one’s contribution, the page said, “Your contribution will benefit Jessica Ramos.”

The more than $35,000 in contributions raised through the effort made up the majority of Ramos’s campaign haul for January, according to state filings.

 She spent $6,000 on consultants and a few hundred on staff meals and transportation — but no money for the fridge or food for the community.

“It’s not right,” Betsy Gotbaum, executive director of government watchdog Citizens Union, told the Daily News. “I would not mix campaign work with charity.

It doesn’t get better either.

She (Ramos) said she is moving offices and intends to use all the funds raised through the ActBlue link for a new fridge and free food at an East Elmhurst location to be determined.

She said she chose to raise funds through ActBlue “because it offers more disbursement transparency.”

“The $35,000 belongs to the fridge,” Ramos added.

Suffice to say, that’s a lot money to go to a singular fridge. But it’s elementary to see how Sen. Ramos and her aides took opportunistic advantage of this fund and people’s kindness.

What’s also elementary is how in the age of predominant surveillance technology there was no video footage of the vandalism as it occurred and how a building rented by a government official was not equipped with cameras in the first place. Because by the looks of this destruction, it must have took an hour to accomplish for they had to rip the refrigerator that was connected to a power source in the building and loot all the grub. Clearly a van was used to extract it from the wall and it must have made enough noise to wake up the neighbors. Another thing way off about this incident is that nothing was mentioned if the cops were called or if there was even an investigation after all the publicity it got.

Considering the brazen way Ramos used the donations to feed her staff and herself and to move her office to an entire new building, this vandalism has all the elements of an inside job done by hired guns. Sure not on a level of young Henry and Tommy blowing up a car dealership in Goodfellas, but considering the way how this heinous  event worked amazingly well for the progressive senator to get new digs carries the same gravitas.

What makes this worse is that Sen. Ramos basically engaged in crisis acting to get all that donor lucre, which is a wonder why she has consultants for and what they are doing to earn 6 large. It’s also a wonder why a local politician needs consultants and has more than one, and why didn’t they consult her about how bad the optics are to take money that’s supposed to go to a charitable cause and then obliterating the URL for the donor page to avoid accountability, as well as how immoral and unethical all or that is.

But then again, they are consultants and in this goddamn city they are there more to find the loopholes and the short cuts to make honest graft more palatable and normalized. It looks like Sen. Ramos may learned a few things while working as an aide for a couple years under Bill de Blasio; a man whose only accomplishments running NYC for 7.3 years was to find ways to cover his ass from recidivist illicit fundraising.

With her brazen pillaging and bad faith actions, Jessica Ramos is now a major player in the game of city politricks. And you can’t get any trickier than naming the fundraiser after your own name instead of naming it the community fridge fund.

Here’s hoping she and her entourage have enough catering money left for the grand opening party at her new office.

The safest part of the safest big city

Commissioner Dermot Shea announced that over 400 guns were taken off the street in January in a month where shootings went up 20% compared to last year. While not mentioning bail reform by name, Shea claimed 90% of people arrested for gun possession wound up back on the streets as they await weeks for court hearings for their offenses. Unfortunately, six shootings that occurred during a two day blizzard nearly finds his theory credible.

The NYC Transit President Sarah Feinberg announced that heroin junkies are discarding their syringes and rubber ties on the track beds and platforms uptown to downtown and condemned the continuing malaise of mentally ill people attacking commuters and killing themselves on the subway and the urgent need for a bigger NYPD presence on the platforms and by the metrocard machines and token booths. Don’t know if that letter ever made it to the Blaz, but the Transit Police Chief dismissed Ms. Feinberg’s concern and claimed that subway crime was suitably low considering the amount of commuters being victimized by random acts of senseless violence every day.

Commissioner Shea also soberly acknowledged the frequent random attacks that’s been happening all over the transit system and lamented about a recent assault by a mentally ill man he was already familiar with.  But when Marcia Kramer asked The Blaz during his “media availability” about the crisis going on in the subway he brazenly lied to her and contradicted everything Shea has been saying as he was sitting on the dais with him. Then the Blaz brazenly accused Ms. Kramer of lying and fear mongering. So if you are a commuter, the only thing separating you from having a safe commute is de Blasio’s toxic hubris.

But if Transit President Feinberg is still waiting for a response, if she wants to know where the cops are being deployed as our subways devolve into a subterranean jungle, de Blasio’s and Shea’s NYPD has been policing more urgent matters like adding 200 cops to the battalion guarding the U.S. Capitol and the White House at President Biden’s inauguration; sending hundreds of cops to wall off protesters walking by City Hall and sending a militia of cops to a workers strike at Hunts Point and having two cops dressed as Cobra Commandos guarding the Charging Bull by Wall St. after a wiseguy put tape with Gamestop stock agitprop on the bulls’ head, taint and balls.

So NYC citizens, the only thing separating you from having a safe commute everyday is de Blasio’s toxic hubris.

In Tribeca at the Canal St. Station, a man with a thick branch that came off a discarded Christmas tree used it to attack two men and a woman, whacking each of them on their heads while screaming racial slurs, leaving one man knocked out after he relentlessly beat him down when he was coming down the stairs, then bloodying the woman on the platform and injuring and bloodying the other man as he tried to notify the token booth clerk. The maniac exited the station and on randomly hit an MTA worker on her head on the street and then walloped a man standing by his car by the Holland Tunnel entrance, stole his car and crashed it into two parked cars. He ditched that vehicle and then broke windows of two cars he tried to jack from two women while they were stuck in traffic. He then randomly attacked a couple walking with their kids by a posh hotel and broke the woman’s arm and her husband’s leg. Then the loon carjacked another vehicle after he bashed the window with the branch and hit the driver and then he drove it 20 blocks north to Chelsea and he crashed into a patrol car and got arrested after cops broke through the vehicle’s window to drag him out, putting an end to his one hour assault spree injuring 10 people.

In the Lower East Side at the Bowery Station, a man got hit by the arriving J train while he was standing on the tracks.

In East Harlem, a man shot his mother to death in their apartment after she argued with him about his refusal to get a job, then the man ran outside and randomly shot another man on a street corner before he got tazed and collared by the cops. The woman was so terrified of her son after prior domestic violence incidents, she had an order of protection against him and the NYPD gave her a panic alert button to notify them after she got assaulted by him at her home and broke her phone and it still wasn’t enough to stop him from killing her. He was scheduled to be in court for those charges on the day of the murder.

Also in East Harlem, an argument between two cops escalated when one of them jumped the other from behind and wailed on her while she was on the ground on the precinct’s driveway and continued to beat her up inside the station. She got suspended following the blue lives catfight.

In Harlem, vandals broke into the parking lot of a Salvation Army building and also broken into and took a propane tank out of a mobile canteen vehicle and ignited it with a butane torch to destroy a car that was parked next to it.

The flames from the targeted car spread to the mobile canteen and torched another car that was parked next to it. The relief wagon was most recently used to feed hundreds of people a day during this pandemic and will cost over $250,000 to replace it.

Also in Harlem, a man ran away from a hotel homeless shelter while naked and off his meds and went down to the 110th St. Station and started causing a commotion on the platform singing and and dancing near people, then he focused on a man and suddenly attacked him and pushed him onto the tracks.

The naked man jumped onto to tracks and continued to challenge the other man to a fight as the 1 train stopped short when it arrived at the station. The other man defensively pushed him, causing the naked man to fall on the third rail, instantly killing him from the shock.

Again in Harlem, a man grabbed a woman’s ass and then shot her to death and wounded her fiance on the street when the couple went to confront him about his perverted act.

And again in Harlem, a woman got accosted by three men inside a liquor store, one of whom offered to buy her a bottle of wine. After the woman refused him, the gang followed her outside and continued to harass her and then they swarmed and slammed her onto a parked SUV and beat her down. The Lothario who offered to buy her wine bit her on the face and tried to ripped her eye out of her socket. He stole her cellphone and ran away with his crew.

The following day, a group people organized a demonstration march in solidarity for the victim and in condemnation of the ultraviolent crime in protection for their fellow citizens and their community. One of the bastards got arrested for beating and strangling a woman at her apartment in East Flatbush.

 

In Midtown, a woman committed suicide by hanging herself inside her apartment.

Also in Times Square, a woman working as Minnie Mouse took her mask off while taking a break and then a homeless man ran up to her and sucker punched her in the face. The man was back on the streets in 24 hours because he didn’t used a weapon in the assault.

Again in Times Square, a man slashed another man in the back on the Q/N/R/W train platform.

And again in Times Square, a man stopped his car in the middle of the avenue and got out and danced on the street which attracted the attention of cops patrolling the area. Then the dancing fool took brandished a gun and got arrested.

Also in the East Village, a man got shot to death on the street by a man riding a bicycle.

Again in the East Village, a man bashed an upscale ice cream parlor cashier on her head with a rock after demanding money from her and then robbed the store and got away on a city bus. The lunatic thief robbed another swanky ice cream parlor in NoMad two days before.

Again in Soho, four men entered a luxury designer store, one of them who flash a gun at a security guard, and easily snatched all the handbags and wallets in broad daylight, making off with over $160,000 worth of merchandise.

This plunder is the latest incident of several lootings of high end stores in the area going back to June, when a  critical mass of thieves broke into stores one evening during a city curfew sparked by the Black Lives Matter protests that was decreed by Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio. And like that crime spree, the recent looting at Chanel involved rental cars being used for getaways and an underwhelming response by the NYPD compared to the amount of cops being sent to protests;  especially by the Strategic Response Unit, which probably would be more useful against organized crime than organized protests.

In Greenwich Village, three women jumped another woman from behind and one of them hit on her on the head with a glass bottle and stole her cellphone.

Also in Greenwich Village, a man invaded a woman’s apartment while she was sleeping in her bed. When the tenant gave him cash, the man attempted to rape her but she kicked his ass, causing him to flee with the money even though they got torn in half during the tussle.

In Chelsea, residents are freaking out at the amount of homeless people that are hanging around, occupying sidewalk space and openly shooting dope in Council Speaker Corey Johnson’s district. But his mind has been focused on bike lanes for quite some time.

In Downtown Manhattan, people publicly assembling in a protest march on the Brooklyn Bridge in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day got immediately confronted by de Blasio’s NYPD by City Hall and hundreds of cops in riot gear charged the demonstrators trying to force them onto the sidewalk. Even though the protesters were following the NYPD’s instructions, a riot ensued and led to 29 people arrested and 10 cops injured when a bunch of protesters fought back.

Even though the NYPD were suddenly the focus of NY State AG James with her recent lawsuit against the city for their violently illegal, dubiously arbitrary and unconstitutional response and brutality against participants in BLM protests last June, because of the insurrection of the U.S. Capitol on January 6 2021, a federal order was instituted that all government buildings in America were under blanket authoritative protection, which Mayor de Blasio eagerly cited to justify the militaristic deployment and oppression. (Which I fucking called)

Also in Downtown Manhattan at the Fulton St. Station, a gang of four men and two women jumped and beat down a man who was ordering food at the Dunking Donuts in the station’s 2 billion dollar hub.

Again in Downtown Manhattan and again at the Fulton St. Station, a man randomly pushed another man onto the tracks and got nabbed by the cops when he fled to the streets. The mentally disturbed man attacked another man with a pipe in the subway a month earlier.

In Hudson Yards, a man committed suicide by jumping off the top of the Vessel. The man was a fugitive wanted for stabbing his mother to death in Texas. The real estate developer that manages the property decided to close the Suicide Shawarama indefinitely.

In  Chinatown, a man assaulted a deli worker with a wet floor sign because the lotto machine was closed.

Also in Chinatown, a man got off a charter bus and was met by and attacked by a gang of 13 people as they chased him down the street and caught him on a corner and proceeded to beat the living shit out of him, beating him down to the pavement, taking turns kicking him and slashed him multiple times all over his body. Then they stripped his pants and britches off him and left him in a bloody pulp with his genitals exposed. They also stole his cellphone.

The gang dispersed as fast as they arrived; for they all showed up to the charter bus top via text by a relative of theirs who was beaten and robbed by their victim, who was revealed to be a gang member, when they both got on the bus that departed from Atlanta en route to NYC. The gangbanger stuck him up inside the bus and along with an accomplice (who did not accompany him the rest of the trip) and robbed the man’s watch, sneakers and jacket he happened to be wearing until the high-tech lynching on Canal St.  his victim surreptitiously arranged with his relatives on a cellphone he borrowed from another passenger. The man and three of his relatives turned themselves in to the authorities and claimed self-defense for the retribution in this incredible story of gang violence and tech weaponizing.

In Brownsville, the superintendent of a NYCHA building strangled an 78-year-old woman to death with a telephone cord after he visited her demanding to get paid for a favor he did for her and got caught by the cops after he used her debit card to buy a sandwich at a bodega nearby the Woodson Houses.

The 66-year-old man was also found to committing two other murders of elderly women that lived in the building he worked in at the Woodson Houses who he also hassled for money for favors. He stabbed an 82-year-old woman in the neck with a steak knife inside her apartment back in 2015 that was initially filed as a death by natural causes by authorities until the wound was found by a coroner at the funeral home that was handling her corpse. Four years later, he savagely beat an 83-year-old woman to death in her apartment by stomping on her neck. He was suspected for her murder but was let go because the DNA tracings he left behind were inconclusive because of how frequently visited her.

While the lethal handyman never got caught for murder, he was a recidivist criminal that was still allowed to live in a public housing building despite strict regulations against tenants piling up a criminal record. Notably when he faked a car crash with two other people to rip off an insurance company for $150,000. Now the family of his recent murder victim is suing NYCHA for $25,000,000 for not having a sufficient amount of security cameras in the building, which stems from complaints of other tenants for almost a decade and summarized by the rise of killings and shootings on NYCHA properties in the last two years.

Scenes Of Queens: Blockbuster Redacted, Stonked

This scene is located in Howard Beach.

This Blockbuster Video location died when the chain got usurped by online rental and indiscriminating movie and show greenlighter Netflix about 10 years ago.

But all is not entirely lost for Blockbuster, because their spirit remains very much alive and well thanks to the social media short stock trading wealth redistribution revolution against Wall Street that’s going on, with the stock riding on the coatheels of the once dying retail video game store Game Stop, which also suffered the same fate failing to compete with online and app derived gaming.

Oregon Live

How crazy is the stock market right now? The penny stock that represents the smoldering remains of the bankrupt Blockbuster Video empire surged more than 700% on Tuesday.

BB Liquidating Inc. has continued its run Wednesday, up as much as 302%, Bloomberg reports.  The stock’s volume, writes the business news outlet, “was 70 times the three-month average, showing that even the most retrograde of old-technology stocks isn’t immune to the ebullience of retail investors and day traders.”

The Blockbuster blitz — coming on the heels of (and perhaps inspired by) the day-trading, Reddit-driven GameStop stock surge — has left even seasoned market watchers scratching their heads.

“Who exactly is buying shares of Blockbuster’s liquidation holding company is unclear,” writes the financial-markets content service Seeking Alpha.

The sudden rise in BB Liquidating’s stock is eye-popping enough that the news has jumped beyond the market’s players and begun to make waves on social media.

In consideration to what’s going on with Blockbuster’s stonk revival and the property management’s decision long ago not to extract the sign, maybe the city should consider this structure worthy of absurdity landmark designation like the Pepsi Cola ad in Long Island Cityinstead of it being a reminder of how Mayor de Blasio responds to Freedom of Information requests from good government groups and reporters.

City Finally Orders Closing Of Sleazy Kew Gardens Hotel After A Man Got Murdered There On New Years Day

Not anymore

A New Bad Days Special Bulletin:

Kew Gardens, Queens, New York

2021 was barely over an hour old when two groups of men got into a brawl while a party was going on at one of the rooms inside a hotel. The fight spilled out onto the street by the front entrance. As the rumble continued, shots were fired and one man got hit in the leg and died from his wounds and two other men also got struck and hospitalized. Four men involved in the brawl and killing fled the scene of the crime.

What makes this incident distinctive besides being the first homicide of the year following a year that had the most murders New York City has had in 11 years and the amount of shootings and victims than in the last two years combined is where this took place; the Umbrella Hotel, where only 4 months earlier a shooting following a brawl happen inside the lobby, blowing out the revolving and regular door windows of the entrance.

Despite persistent community complaints and condemnations by City Council members and the current President of Queens Donovan Richards and their universal demands to shut down, the Umbrella continued to run it’s business for months. Although not entirely as a place for high end lodging but for speakeasy DJ and bottle parties, brazenly flaunting pandemic guidelines. Spillover from these unusual and illicit events lead to consistent environmental noise disruptions aggravating residents of the usually quiet neighborhoods, with drunk patrons milling about the area, booming systems from idling cars and also blowing up fireworks on some occasions.

Reaction from the NYPD and Mayor de Blasio when pressed about the wanton illicit activity and crime at the Umbrella went with unfilled promises of enforcement and habitual indifference and this activity naturally continued. And as the history of this sleazebag hotel as showed, it continued naturally before, because ever since this hotel got built, it’s been a pox on the area despite what the developers and management originally proposed when it got zoned for building in the neighborhood, that it would be filled with upper class lodgers and residents once it got built. The expectations made for it would be for town of Kew Gardens to have a veneer of cool to the area, kind of like high end towns like Williamsburg and Long Island City with similar lux hotels.

Except what they got wasn’t cool, but “Kewl” and it only resulted in diminishing returns…

That’s another interesting twist, because before it was the Umbrella Hotel, it was a national chain hotel the Comfort Inn and apparently it had trouble getting the clientele it desired and decided to house the homeless in all those vacant rooms to make up for whatever revenue was lost, which was apparently a helluva surprise for people who were already renting there. Oh, that’s another thing, this wasn’t just a hotel but a mixed use building with “luxury” apartments.

Apparently, some of the new and depressingly impoverished clientele for the “Kewl” were wreaking havoc on the streets in the vicinity of it and nearby locales, which included the Union Turnpike transit hub, with reports of aggressive panhandling on the sidewalks, mentally ill men yelling at random people, and drug and fecal detritus found in the stairwells of the station.

In the 3 years since that scoop, it’s not known when the owners or proprietors (whoever they are) changed the name to Umbrella from the lame Kewl or if it’s even still owned by the Comfort. It’s not even known if anyone is renting the luxury apartments there anymore (probably keeping quiet). But it definitely was still operating as a homeless shelter even while still renting out room to travelers vacationing in Queens while devolving further into a den of iniquity.

But because of the pandemic, the Umbrella continued taking in the homeless because of city and state guidelines to prevent contagion but evidently willingly booked rooms for illegal ragers for months despite state bans of indoor gatherings of more than 10 people.

After the deadly shooting and immediate demands of its closing by officials and the community and with de Blasio feeling the pressure after years of insouciance about the hotel’s well known notoriety he finally closed the hotel down for business and probably abolished their contract to house the homeless too. And a man had to lose his life for it to be done. Which is actually the modus operandi policy of NYC government, which is to let crime and urban decay continue as long as people don’t notice or don’t die.

What really makes the Umbrella Hotel saga deranged is that with all the ruckus of wanton behavior and crime going on there is that the Queens Criminal Courthouse and the District Attorney’s office is a 5 minute walk away from there.

 And also a defense attorney’s office for your convenience.

Apparently, these venues and salient facts had an influence on sudden proactive enforcement against the Umbrella Hotel’s sordid existence with the arrest of a 68-year-old bell clerk. Despite Queens D.A. Melinda Katz’s grandstanding collar, no one in management or even the owner have not been held accountable for their bigger part in the allowance and profiting from the illegal goings on at their establishment or the chaos that ensued.

And the four men suspected of the murder are still running free on the streets.

Great job Mr. Mayor and Councilor Katz.

 

 

 

 

 

Queens Is Burning: Three Buildings Destroyed From Beauty Salon Fire In Flushing

QNS

Firefighters on Saturday morning extinguished a seven-alarm fire that started late Friday night in a Flushing storefront and extended into an adjacent building, according to the FDNY.

After receiving a call just before midnight on Friday, Jan. 8, regarding the blaze at a three-story building located at 136-15 37th Ave., approximately 50 units and 200 FDNY personnel responded to the scene to fight the fire.

The blaze was first classified as a two-alarm fire at 12:11 a.m. on Jan. 9, before slowly progressing to a seven-alarm classification by 5:19 a.m.

 
Rent at an apartment above the store that got engulfed in flames was for 2,600 a month.

New Bad Days 80: Young People Sow Disorder On The Streets With Rumbles In The Presence Of Cops And Ultraviolent Attacks On Cars In The Middle Of Traffic; Unhinged Man Disrupts Outdoor Church Concert With Random Gunfire; Man Stalks And Clobbers Governor Cuomo’s Staffer With A Cinderblock; Four EMTs Get Ambushed By Muggers Making Bogus 911 Calls; Fed Ex Delivery Man Gets Shot And Food App Delivery Guys Get Robbed On The Job; 16-Year-Old Boy Murdered By Acquaintance That Gave Him A Pat On The Back; Another 16-Year-Old Boy Recidivist Criminal Behavior Enabled By Judge And Homicides, Shootings, Shootouts, Muggings, Burglaries, Random Attacks On Citizens, Home Invasions, Criminal Aggression Against Cops And Stray Bullets Continues Reaching New Plateaus To Complete 2020

2020 in New York City society concludes with distressingly significant and historic rises in major felonious crimes. Shootings went up 97 % while victims wounded by bullets rose over 100%. 447 people were murdered this year, a rise of 41% and the highest amount of homicides in over a decade. Two other serious crimes also went up in large margins with burglaries at 41% and auto theft at 67%. Although there were slight decreases in felony assaults and robberies, there were over 94,000 felonies committed last year and over 110,000 misdemeanor offenses (which the PDF doesn’t add the total sum on in the pdf released to the public). While not listed here, bike theft went up by 27%, coinciding  with the rise of bike commuting because of fears of getting infected with coronavirus using mass transit.

Even  though there is controversy about the effects the states bail reform laws have had on the uptick of these crimes along and edicts allowing the release of convicts to stem the spread of contagion in prisons because of the pandemic; regarding the gun violence crisis, over 3,000 criminals were set loose without bail after being found in possession of guns and recidivism continued to thrive with these perpetrators because of the flaws in the new law.

While the pandemic has had an effect on crime, being that the streets have been more deserted in the day and darker at night because everything is locked down, it is only more illuminated now because felonies have been rising steadily for the last 5 years before a novel virus invaded the five boroughs. While the Mayor of New York City continues to evade these horrific upticks after years of bragging how he ran the safest big city in the world, the reality on the streets and what’s seen by his constituents tell different stories. Stories that will be told by more citizens since poorly written laws and a stunning lack of city services continue to mount in 2021 without sensible modifications or a scintilla of leadership as a disease continues it’s predominant omniscience over the five boroughs.

But all the Blaz wants to do is dance.

Then the gang surrounded the vehicle and threw and smashed their bikes on it and tore the mirrors off it while some of the boys kicked and punched and tried to force open the vehicle while threatening the driver and horrifying his 70-year-old mother inside. One boy did a flying head butt onto the hood and another boy jumped on the hood twice and kicked and smashed the windshield.

Besides the fact that what went on here and what these kids engaged in was blatant wanton lawlessness which conveyed collective contempt and zero empathy for other people, the pressing question here is where was the NYPD’s Strategic Response Unit bike militia to repress this anarchy that made such a display of predominance at the last public assembly demonstrations only a few months ago after Election Day?

Scenes Of Queens: And Now A Word From Our Slumlord Mercenary Sponsor…

This heinous predatory advertisement is hanging, or more appropriately and ironically squatting rent free on the railing of the abandoned Rockaway Rail Line on Atlantic Avenue in Ozone Park. This enterprise probably and presumably illegally hung this up here assuming that the eviction moratorium will expire on schedule on the new year.

What kind of person would call an eviction hotline during a pandemic and while another outbreak is happening? The kind that would get the number from a scuzzy billboard on an dilapidated and long dead transit line.

This scene was captured over a week ago, December 2020.

OBVIOUSLY KNOWN And SCENES FROM QUEENS: Two New Photo Series On People, Places And Things In New York City

darkmanjq

Your intrepid photographer

In the last four years keeping this blog afloat and building a modest social media following while having been the proud owner of about 5 or 6 cellphones, I’ve amassed a sizeable collection of photos of places, people and things that caught my eye and captured an indelible moment worthy of immortality and a massive collection of photos that were horribly shot and or immediately forgotten. But for the former, I’m going to place them in archival prosperity or immediate newsworthiness in a post series called “Obviously Known”. I came up with this because I don’t care much for subtlety and also there are a lot of things I see that I feel are quite common but hardly gets acknowledged, whether upsetting, surreal, transcendent, or oddball.

Because of the convenience of the camera app, I’ve been able to capture these moments with total ease that I never had the opportunity or spare time to do before, and also because I never owned a camera before (at least a quality one).

Like the millions of other blogs that’s on the internets, these photo posts will be summarily titled (prefaced by the theme title) with a brief description and the date when they were taken, just like on those plaques in those fancy art galleries. These photos will also be seen on the Obviously Known and Scenes From Queens on Tumblr website tooas hastags my Twitter account, just to be doubly sure they get the attention I hope they get.

Let’s get it started:

To my readers who caught this blog earlier on, I used a similar photo like this for my header (which is now graced by City Hall at night). This was taken in 2016 when the luxury monolith was a just a toddler.

This is back of Gracie Mansion taken around 2017 in winter. It’s the only way you can get into the Mayor’s house.

This is a good one. It’s from September 2016 when Banksy came to town. This is the truck full of stuffed animals that drove around Manhattan. I believe this signified the cruelty of animals and was a criticism for the consumption of meat.  It emitted audio of bellowing cows and pigs as if they were going to slaughter but it sounded like a bunch of see and say toys set on those animals were set on a loop. I have other pictures of the world renown guerilla artist from a piece of shit Vivitar camera I got at a Walgreens, but they are grossly blurred. When Banksy came, I overcame my reluctance to buy and own a celly. Unfortunately, I’ve become a much a slave to it as everyone else is. Which was Big Tech’s and Big Telecom’s master plan right?

Pigeon buffet in Midtown Manhattan, April 2017.

Imaginative transit infrastructure repair job. Upper East Side, Manhattan 2016

Homeless person, breakfast on the concrete, pretty certain this is around February 2016. The city’s homeless population at this time is estimated to be around 80,000 people, with about 4,000 still sleeping on the streets even during a pandemic. In homage to Jacob Riis who wrote a whole book about the less and unfortunate living conditions of the city’s poorest people almost 2 centuries ago, Obviously Known pictures like this will be subtitled “How the other 80,000 live” or whatever number is current.

Picture of Downtown Manhattan From Downtown Brooklyn, November 2020 from the promenade. A week later, some drunk asshole decided to take a joyride on here in his luxury car.

Now for some Scenes From Queens

Overcast skies over a row of homes in Richmond Hill, Queens. November 2019

Fucking Big Rig in the bike lane. Elmhurst, Queens, September 2019. I recall this pile of crap obstructing me having license plates from two different states on the back and the front.

These carcasses wound up on the Queens Blvd. bike lane in Woodside right after it was freshly painted only a week earlier back in 2016. The businesses and the community board was dead set against this being implemented and Mayor de Blasio told them tough shit after they officially voted no.

Dusk in Ozone Park, July 2018.

I’m going to end this post with a capture from Summer 2019 of the Ed Koch Memorial Queensboro Bridge. Which is marred by that tower under construction at the time on Roosevelt Island.

That’s it for now. Now that another outbreak has hit the five boroughs, this will give me free time to go into my archives and post some more worthy still life moments and finally free tons of GB space of thousands of crappy pics from my home p.c..

I hope these pics will not only garner interest but also inform people. Let’s see what develops.

Jamaica Avenue’s Million Dollar Pit Of Despair And Graffiti

 

Richmond Hill, Queens, New York

On the day after the six-alarm fire that destroyed the homes above storefronts in Richmond Hill and taking pics of the charred windows on the buildings, strolling about 8 blocks east by Lefferts Blvd. there exists this unsightly gated wall protruding on the sidewalk next to a barber shop and a ministry. I call it a gated wall because it’s secured with a lock and chain.

Unfortunately the wall itself wasn’t as resilient. As evident by this unsightly and hazardous profusion. Which is easily accessible to passerby, especially children.

It wasn’t hard to deduce what happened here. Apparently a bunch of graffiti artists were looking for a convenient venue to bomb and also are coming strapped with axes along with their aerosol paint cans.

Just some standard tagging, no offense to the artists oevure. Also standard but more varietal was the detritus strewn on the platform of the spacious lot, with a piece of the breached wall lying askew on a shoddily structured fence.

I wish I can recall what used to be here, most likely a mixed use building probably with a restaurant. It also looks like it was recently razed because there are no indicators of new development being done here going by the absence of NYC Department of Building placards. It also looks like this wall has been in this condition for a few weeks now, including that gaping jaggered maw.

The only indication that this pit belongs to anyone is the one sign affixed to the wall on it’s east side. A company named Signature Premier Properties is advertising their company and website on this open and blighted space.

With some sleuthing on the duckduckgo and that monopoly search engine, this premier property with quite the sordid history was put up for sale about 3 weeks ago a few days before Thanksgiving. And Signature PP is asking $999,000 for it.

I cannot fathom why they decided to cut a grand off the price more than how they came to this ostentatious value. Maybe it’s because of it’s current status as an “unimproved land” that didn’t qualify for the rounded out million. But advertising the property as “convenient to all!” certainly exacerbated it’s unimproved condition of the lot with all that vandalism and pollution.

Apparently as the recent picture shows, they had to improve and fortify the property post haste  and it shows with this incredibly cheap upgrade. Which includes a new “gate”. This looks like the handiwork of dustheads squatting in an foreclosed home and is not up to the standards of anthropomorphic cartoon animals.

Conspicuously absent from the repurposed wall is Signature’s ad sign…

And if Signature PP or whoever owns this pit think this is going to stop rival taggers from getting in they are sadly mistaken. A crowbar or even a $1.99 Trisonic flathead screwdriver that you can get from the nearest 99 cent stores can easily pry those planks down or even a good rain to loosen them up for a tae kwon do superkick.

Usually the default reaction/response to scenes like this is to refer it as another definitive sign to what a shitty year 2020 is (and it is the worst year in this young century); but this is Queens and scenes like this have been always been manifest. And none more than on the southern and eastern sides of the borough far from tony Brooklyn and Manhattan and the interests of elected officials, which includes even the ones who represent the districts here.

It’s only amplified even more because of the pandemic and people either have no time to care or using as an excuse not to be concerned. But the thing that makes this blighted eyesore worse is that it actually has a value on it. Urban decay is being marketed and sold as a luxury product.

There will be a buyer for this shithole just like there are buyers for a wall with a banana being held by duct tape and Mark David Chapman’s autographed copy of Double Fantasy he got signed after he killed the artist who created it. But for now, this unimproved land belongs to the taggers, hooligans, homeless and anyone else who dares to enter. Or break and enter into there. But at least the residents of Richmond Hill and the borough of Queens can take a scintilla of pride knowing that they are walking in the presence of opulence.

Even though it’s speculated and fabricated…
