Neighborhood Chat / Re: The alcoholic situation by PS 69 is getting out of hand
« Last post by ClydeM on Yesterday at 11:09:30 PM »
I’ve lived in JH all my life and went to PS69. They’ve always been there and have not bothered longtime residents. Please stop trying to turn our neighborhood into the small towns that you’re from. If it really grinds your gears maybe you should run for office. #gohome

1. They have not always been there, and certainly not in the quantity that are there now.
2. They do, in fact, bother long time residents including many residents who have been here since before you were probably even born.
3. You have no idea where the people who are posting on this thread come from, and not assume that they come from small towns in Nebraska. Many people who have grown up in NYC, as well as other cities, like to make at least an attempt to keep our communities clean and safe.
4. Just because something was the norm in the past, does not make it significantly or necessarily good.

I've seen St. Mary's recommended, although haven't tried it myself. They do pickups.

Also, if you're on Facebook, join a "Buy Nothing" group. There are two for Jackson Heights - one for the east and one for west. The group you end up in depends on your home address. https://www.facebook.com/groups/235302994042958

I'm new to JH. What is best thing to do when we come across people or groups drinking, urinating or passed out on the sidewalks? Call 911? Call 311?

Welcome to Jackson Heights!! I do hope you love it here as this is such a vibrant community...it's part of the reason that we moved here and why I am so fired up over this issue.

Who to call has been a thorn in the side of all of us here who care about our beautiful streets. Some thoughts:
- Danny Dromm and Francisco Moya - but don't get your hopes up because these two have proven to be pretty useless
- 311: The more calls/complaints logged the better - it focuses the city's attention on this issue
- Community Board 3 - as I posted on the other (now locked) thread, other city community boards have been transparent about homeless outreach. Ours has not.
- 82nd Street BID
- 115th Precinct - for those that exhibit violent and/or lewd behavior. Hearing that they are exposing themselves to children makes my blood boil.

Here are a couple you can try...

https://uwvcpickupservice.org/

They should both take pretty much anything you may have.  Hope it works out!

Can anyone recommend a place to donate clothes?  These are a mix of women's, men's and teen clothes.  Most in really good condition.  i don't want them to go into a landfill. Thanks!

Can anyone recommend a place to board a 65lb dog near JH?  He is friendly but needs a lot of exercise.

Thanks!

Sarah
