There's also the 2 to 3 guys always standing on the NW corner of Roosevelt and 79th, directing people to the alley and/or house next to Kitchen 79. They are there so much they even show up on Googlemaps. The local police here are a joke - they either are in the pocket or don't care.

Another idea...organize a demonstration of Jackson Heights residents to stand there while this is happening.

Simply stand there.

20 people or more.  There is strength in numbers.

Yet another idea would be to play the recording of a police siren. Unexpectedly. Simply to randomly scare these guys.

Great way to get killed or injured. Take on illegal drug dealers.

@abcdefghijk Your ideas are all fun and would be worth a try, but JKResident makes a good point. Many of the residents who spend a lot of time outside, and who have witnessed what has been happening, are elderly. We wouldn't want to open them up to retaliation by these idiots.

If the 115th would be willing to contact one of the board members who have sent emails to our NCOs, or contact the people who complained at the precinct, we would gladly let them review the footage from our security cameras, which would provide ample evidence of what has been going on. The best that they have done is assure us that they will send more patrol cars down our block. This issue could be solved in a day with three undercover officers stationed strategically.

We have contacted both the offices of Daniel Dromm and Francisco Moya over the past few months. The response has been underwhelming.

To those who are accusing us of simply taking photos of random people, what you are missing (perhaps because you didn't read the previous posts), is that this has been going on for months. All of the photos that were posted were pulled from our security cameras on different days, and one shows a deal happening. Also, with the exception of two, each photo shows the same person. When it happens almost every day, it's pretty easy to see what is going on especially when no effort is made to hide it.

Just reported this to the 115th. I hadn't seen this thread until just now but it's become increasingly more obvious on 86 street and 35 ave,

I am sure they already know about it....


What are they selling?


It's probably more trouble than it's worth. They can't tell what they are dealing and they may or may not be armed. Much easier and safer to give street vendors tickets.


BUT if you complain at one of the town halls etc then they will probably stand there for about a week.

we do realize the historic district of JH just fell all over themselves to help elect a DA that ran on a platform of stopping prosecution of drug and prostitution.

so what is literally the point of arresting them?  no punishments anymore.   

Queens is about to be pimp, ho, and drug dealer city.  street gangs securing preferred corners and streets.   

should get interesting....

We're not sure what they're selling, but we don't think that it's just pot for reasons that are better not described here. There is also a pattern in how they work, which is also best not described here. I will say that none of the people concerned appear to be particularly smart and that is what concerns us most.

Thank you for reporting it. Are they the same people in the photos?

I'm not sure to whom your sarcastic comments about selling are directed, or even why you are making them, but they aren't particularly useful. We decided, as a board, to start this thread. We decided, again as a board, to do this in response to numerous complaints from our residents, many of whom have lived here since at least the 80s. We have an obligation to address the concerns of our shareholders, as well as an obligation to our community to address issues that affect the quality of life in our immediate area.

Francis, what have you seen taking place on 86th and 35th? Do you mean 37th (a mistake I occasionally make)? Is the activity in or out of a particular apt building? The Salvation Army building?

 Her sarcastic comments aren’t particularly useful, and are directed to anybody on this board who will read them. If you will see she’s got over 4000 posts already…

Many people who support the legalization of drugs and prostitution believe this is harmless minor criminal activity. They believe we can be like Amsterdam. We were once called New Amsterdam. I remember what certain parts of the neighborhood looked like in 1991 at the height of the crime wave. Cabán was all of 3 years old. It was a scary time and Jackson Heights was the drug money laundering center. When they start selling drugs in front of your home and you have prostitution (both male and female) on your street then people are upset. All politics is local.

  My understanding is that calling the precinct from as many different numbers as possible
is the best way to start a serious investigation, it goes onto some kind of docket where
progress is frequently checked upon. The amount of different contact numbers is important
here as it says to them that more than one household is observing this behavior and wants
it stopped! Get as many people as you know to call and repeat this until you see some
change.
