Yipee! A JH Community Center for year-round sports and activities!!

(1/3) > >>

 Yes, it's here, finally, the long wished for Jackson Heights Community Center! Not certain of a lot of the details but this will go a long way in helping with activities all year round as well as adding to a meetup for locals and a bunch of other community needs. Hip, hip hooray to Danny Dromm and the other politicians and countless neighbors and activists who have been asking for this for years. Seriously, years.
  So now we can reconfigure the needs of the community as a whole. Include as many people as possible, as many ages as possible, as many streets as possible to form a cohesive plan for everyone to have activities and exercise and community involvement here in JH. Rain or shine,
heat wave or cold snap, this facility will be available and this is absolutely great news!
   If you haven't heard much about it yet, read below. Of course we will all need to help fund raise and give suggestions but the groundwork is laid here.

There are certain folks who when they see a brass band...leap out in front and pretend to be leading it.

However what they often fail to realize is that no-one is fooled.

But, where will they put it?

Oh boy. The middle of the crowd is so comfortable ABCDE...come join it. The water's fine.
Let Danny D. lead the brass band, shall we? Unless you are speaking about yourself/your friends  here? All the folks I know are just happy that it's happening, again, yipee!!!

 And as to where they will put it, the Jewish Center on 37th and 77th St has been mentioned as a possible site. There is also the police parking lot on Northern Blvd and 90th? next to the precinct that the city owns. And probably some other possibilities the realtors know more about...

Jumping in! Thanks Itsit.

A great location would be the parking lot for the supermarket on 34th Ave/Junction Bld.   

Then the kids can also be close to the open street and utilize that as well.

Win/win for the kids!
