It might seem off-topic but it’s not when you consider people like me have been wanting to buy in western queens for years – especially now with children… and now I/we don’t see the value in buying anymore. Inventory is way over-priced and, while someone else might pay a heafty price for it, they’ll likely burn out sooner than I or folks of my generation did. Meanwhile Westchester County condo market still has not fully returned to the 2006 market highs, and the failing MTA subway and NJ / LIRR Rails make living there all the more attractive.

What the ???

Yeah right jt, Mr liberal. It is what it is. I live right here, paisano is spot on. It’s the sad truth. If it was just the poor and unfortunate it’s one thing but these places are full of thugs , ex cons , and drug addicts. There is also a story of a guy exposing himself in front of a 13 yrs old just 3 blocks away. Guaranteed it’s the same guy and I bet he’s from the pan am or the old Mets. It’s disgusting, a block from a chuch

@What?–This crime would be alright with you if it wasn’t a block away from a church? To the person posting under “get real” :this girl left a pool hall willingly with these 2 guys. Are you willing to throw yourself between this group of people? You’d be the one committing a crime.

Perhaps i am misunderstanding something. You write “this girl left a pool hall willingly with these 2 guys.” You do understand that the girl was 13 years old? Were you there? Do you know what took place? If she was lured and it was a loud conversation then shame on the staff and people that might of heard and/or saw and did nothing. At least, call the police and let them deal with it. Even if she left willingly..she is a 13 yr old minor that was found with out her clothes! It is not a crime to contact the police if you suspect or see a crime happening. I lived in neighborhoods where other people looked out for young children..do not be afraid to do so.

It is very sad what this area is like in terms of safety. It seems like every week we read about something horrific happening. I think more people in this area need to care about their community and get involved with local officials and precincts to put an end to these acts of crime. They need to stop being so oblivious to their surroundings. No matter what anyone says surrounding neighborhoods (like Woodisde/JH/Corona) where a good number of people are poor and undocumented create an atmosphere of injustices where some people feel like they can get away with anything.

Please note that I was in no way saying that undocumented people or workers are to blame or that they were the ones committing crimes. That is something the precincts can answer. However, i do believe that neighborhoods with a good number of undocumented residents creates an atmosphere for others to prey on and commit crimes. Generally speaking, these people tend to live in fear and ignore the obvious. Its sad but true. When people feel like they are represented and can speak out for the better of the community there are different outcomes. We all saw how long it took for someone to do anything about the gangs in Suffolk County who are basically arriving here for the sole purpose of engaging in illegal activity. It was the news media that bought this issue to national attention and the feds stepped in.

Homeless hotel right down the block. Start looking over there. It wouldn’t be bad if they had decent people in need of housing because they fell on hard times but these homeless hotels are full of junkies and recently paroled ex cons. All lowlifes.

Don’t make assumptions. There are plenty of hardworking people just trying to get back on their feet in shelters – your comments are ignorant and repulsive.

Do you have statistics to back up your sensational concussion? I doubt it. Homelessness doesn’t equate crime.
