Mayor Adams first summer in charge of New York City has resulted in an unfortunate series of disasters as the gun violence continued to surge despite the efforts of the NYPD after getting reportedly thousands of guns off the streets and after appointing another one of his long time friends to a mayoral advisory position as his “gun czar” despite having a record of corrupt misuse and pilfering of funds from his non-profit violence prevention organization for personal gain and spending.
While Adams is definitely the most insecure mayor in the nation who needs to deflect blame on every mistake and failure he’s responsible for in his short time running this town, he gets brownie points for pointing out what the state’s bail reform laws and leniency towards criminal recidivism has done to cause the meteoric rise in every felony category. Too bad he ruins any credibility he can get by not criticizing the feature of this warping of the criminal justice system that is being perpetrated by the arrogant Manhattan’s District
attorney Accomplice Alvin Bragg and his current staff of incompetent prosecutors who don’t do any actual prosecuting.
Mayor Adams should also reserve some of his laughing stock analogy for his own Board of Education commissioner and long time friend David Banks since schools have become hotbeds of violence as well. Drawing down suspensions has made truants more emboldened to commit violent acts against faculty and gang violence has become more prevalent at the schools.
Meanwhile, car theft statistics continue to mount to new highs while more NYC citizens are driving more than ever because of the continuing decline of service and incline of crime on the transit system. Even old school pick pocketing and purse snatching has resurfaced during this new regression of subway safety.
Even though shootings saw an precipitous drop, all the other felonious crimes saw double and triple hikes in June. Sadly the city’s elected fauxgressive shitlibs are still desperately trying to minimize the reality of our surroundings despite that 3/4 of the constituency are certain that they inevitably will be mugged, shot or deliberately and randomly attacked for no reason.
And even though Mayor Adams tries to speak sincerely about the crime issues that have revived fears among his constituency, it’s all instantly obscured with his persistence in partying with oligarchs and celebrities, his irrational stubborn insistence in keeping vaccine mandates going which has led to a stunning exodus of city workers especially by the NYPD, and his proclivity for atrocious gaffes ranging from stupid ass shit to crass self-aggrandizement.
Maybe Adams should check himself before he wrecks himself when he describes the system he needs to change as a laughingstock.

In his first minutes as Mayor of New York City, Eric Adams immediately erased the stain of his elitist predecessor Bill de Blasio by taking the train to Manhattan and fulfilled his promise to be a proactive mayor by doing his duty as a public servant and citizen by witnessing an assault on the street occur and reporting it to emergency services. Riding alone with the press in the presence of regular commuters and a derelict taking up a bench on the J train, Adams stressed how he was going to bring back public safety to the city that has seen the largest rise in crimes in years, over 100,000 total reported offenses, notably murders which came close to hitting 500. Adams enthusiasm was palpable and after having a round table meeting with his staffers in City Hall, it was an auspicious debut for the new mayor, which conveyed some hope in the bleakness of the New Bad Days era that has infected the five boroughs in the last decade.
But Mayor Adams honeymoon and momentum got cockblocked by also recently elected Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg. Bragg, on his third day on the job, wrote and dispensed a memo to his prosecutors to lessen the severity of charges for crimes where a gun or a knife is used and also for home invasion burglaries would be reduced to larcenies, which combined with the asinine bail reform laws instituted 2 years ago, would have led to less prison time or none at all. The logic behind this basically says that as long as you don’t kill or cripple anyone physically, then it’s not worth the punishment for imprisonment, regardless of the financial and traumatic effects that is placed on the innocent victim.
While Mayor Adams had nothing but diplomatic praise for the new D.A.. New, glass ceiling breaking NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell was having none of it, seeing that the leniency being meted out by the arrogant Bragg was counterproductive and predicted an exacerbation and escalation of the crimes his memo marginalized and would leave cops less able to make arrests and leave them vulnerable to violent attacks which would make the streets less safer for the citizenry as a whole.
The blowback from that memo would lead to one of the rough and bloody first month for Adams and for any new mayor that’s ever been seen in New York City.
In East Harlem, on day one of retired NYPD police captain’s Eric Adams mayoralty, a cop working two shifts during a holiday for most people got shot in the head from a stray bullet while taking a nap in his car at his precinct’s parking lot.
Compelling the new mayor to condemn the perpetrator(s) of this shooting:
“This is not going to be a city of disorder, this is not going to be a city of violence. This city is returning from the violent past to a place that is safe to raise our children and families.”
The perps involved are still on the loose.
Also in East Harlem, a man walked into a Burger King and pistol whipped a customer, punched the restaurant manager and then held up a cashier at gunpoint. She opened up the register and gave the man $100. After he looked at the money, he turned around and shot her to death and then ran away. The young woman he murdered was trying to change shifts to the afternoon because she was already fearful to walk the streets where she lived at night after only three weeks working the graveyard shift at the restaurant, fears that were corroborated by a good friend of hers.The victim’s mother, who also works at another fast food restaurant, also tried to persuade the manager to move her hours earlier. The victim was planning to go to nursing school with the money she was earning while helping her mother pay the rent and the bills.
The killer got caught by the cops five days later. He is undocumented immigrant and homeless and was dwelling in a hotel homeless shelter in Jamaica where he threatened another person with a screwdriver a month earlier and was once an employee of the same fast food restaurant where he murdered Krystal Baron-Nieves in cold blood, which is probably why he wasn’t content with the money he robbed and decided to kill her.
The community let him have it during his transfer from the precinct to the courthouse, which didn’t faze him and he reveled in as he cursed them out and yelled about historic oppression of Black people.
Again in East Harlem, a man got into an argument with a group of men inside a car, then they all came out and one of them sneaked up behind him and stabbed him in the neck after he kicked the vehicle. Then the man bled out on the sidewalk staggering by passerby and collapsed and died on the pavement.
And again in East Harlem, a man shot another man to death on the sidewalk in broad daylight.
And again in East Harlem, a woman was left for dead and her baby daughter was left to starve and lie her own feces and urine beside her mother’s body at a homeless shelter for a week by the Department of Homeless Services. And the municipal agency sat on this negligent and gruesome death and malfeasance for over 7 months. The ass covering obfuscation of this tragedy was the most likely under the orders of former abomination mayor de Blasio.
In Harlem, a man shot and killed two cops with a fusillade of bullets from his bedroom inside his mother’s apartment using an automatic weapon with a drum barrel cartridge. A back up cop shot him down as he was trying to flee the premises. The cops were there to respond to a domestic disturbance call where the son was arguing with his mother about her not wanting to eat vegan food. The mother who made the 911 call did not mention her son was armed.
Officer Jason Rivera, a rookie cop who recently married his childhood sweetheart, was killed instantly. Officer Wilbert Mora, who had a bullet lodged in his brain, died from his wounds four days later following two surgeries. Their killer, who had multiple priors and served time in two other states and just moved to Harlem only months ago while still on probation, died from his wounds.
Jason Rivera just got finished training and was only on the job for a few months, he joined the NYPD to bridge the cap between the police and communities and wanted to bring fundamental change to the force as well even after a bad experience dealing with them as a youth.
Also in Harlem at the 125th St. Station, a man stabbed a woman on her leg on the platform to settle and argument they were having.
Again in Harlem, a man slugged his son and knocked him on the floor inside a restaurant.
And again in Harlem, two men chased down two other men on the street and then one of them pulled out a gun during the pursuit and shot one of them to death after a drug deal gone bad.
In Times Square, a man cursed out a homeless woman who asked him for change in front of a chain pharmacy, then got beat down to the pavement and stabbed and robbed his ipad and $340 by her and her boyfriend the minute he stepped out of the store. Passerby walked by and gawked and then the dirty duo fled into the subway without paying the fare.
Also in Times Square at the 42nd St. Station during the morning rush, a homeless man pushed a woman off the platform as the R train arrived, killing her instantly. Just moments before he murdered her, he tried to push another woman onto the tracks, but she saw him and instinctively moved away from him.
Following his arrest and after his procession, the man bragged about his killing, accused the woman he murdered of stealing his jacket and claimed he was God. Michelle Go worked as a volunteer to help the homeless for a non-profit organization that was being financed the titan consultant agency corporation that she was also employed by.
The day after her horrific death, Mayor Adams and transit authorities did a press briefing at that station and declared that subways are still safe and how that killing and other random violent incidents that have occurred in the subway was all based on the perception of fear, which was a common and incorrect talking point uttered repetitiously by the last mayor Bill de Blasio. And it’s still tremendously wrong coming from Adams’ mouth as evidenced by decreasing ridership and the still glaring lack of services for mentally ill homeless people.
Realizing how invalid his take was ( which was possibly was relayed to him by his economic advisors and meathead urbanish influencers), Mayor Adams retracted his statement and acknowledged the legitimate fear that his constituents have for returning to the subway. Even though he ran and won the mayor’s election promising and emphasized on his first commute to the office to bring down crime on the transit system. Funny how perception suddenly changes, although maybe if Adams wasn’t fucking around networking with the two shittiest mayors in America, maybe his perception would have been more precise.
But nothing could be worse than the perception by his very own NYPD, because there were two cops deployed at the station where Martial Simon shoved Ms. Go to her demise, but we’re all the way on the other end of the platform. They also somehow missed the other woman Simon tried to assault.
“We had a robust plan for this station today. We had six officers assigned to it. There were two officers on the southbound platform to the southern end when this incident occurred,” Assistant NYPD Chief Kathleen O’Reilly said.
“Unfortunately these incidents do occur. They’re rare but this one is very harrowing and disturbing,” she said.
Real robust, a mentally ill man menacing a woman and cops seem to be slacking off. And it looks like Adams not only is feigning to sympathize with his constituents concerns, he is also getting his insouciant subway violence data from Chief O’Riley as well.
Again in Times Square, dozens of people defying former mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate in protest attempted to eat at shitty chain movie theme restaurant and a robust deployment of cops came to enforce it under Dave Chokshi’s orders and arrested eight of them, including a wheelchair dependent woman with D.S. syndrome.
In Midtown, a man saw a homeless man sleeping against a wall of an office building and placed his own coat on him to keep him warm, then the homeless man pounced and beat him down to the pavement and stole his wallet and fled.
Cops on the beat nearby immediately caught the thief and arrested him and was found with $1,500 in his pocket. The man was just released with only a desk appearance ticket from a similar possum playing mugging of a woman four days earlier when a woman tried to help him and he beat her down as well. He also randomly attacked a young couple in Central Park for no reason on the second day of 2022. His attorney demanded he be released because his violent criminal act doesn’t warrant jail time according to Manhattan D.A. Bragg’s memo.
Also in Midtown, a man jacked a lux SUV off another man with a broken taser in front of an office building in broad daylight and drove the wrong way and smashed into unmarked patrol car to make his getaway as a cop tried in vain to get him out of the drivers seat. Then he ditched the vehicle after crashing it into a bioswale by the bike lane, fled into the subway and took the train home. Or somewhere else for his next criminal act.
Again in Midtown, a man jacked an app-hail driver’s car by sticking him up with a box cutter. Including the aforementioned one uptown, this was the 20th carjacking this year following a 55% rise last year with 510 reported by the NYPD.

And again in Hell’s Kitchen, a woman committed suicide by jumping from her window onto the street below from a 60 story luxury tower.

Looks like even the city’s THRIVE program that former Mayor de Blasio made a municipal office and service failed the upper class as well.

In the Lower East Side, a man and an accomplice shoplifted over $2,000 of cold medicine and other products from a chain pharmacy and stuck a knife at the store manager who tried to stop them. Then the man came back later in the afternoon and looted more cough medicine, but got caught by the cops and arrested and arraigned for the robbery and the weapon. But D.A. Bragg’s memo induced the judge to release the lucky punk on a petit larceny misdemeanor instead of felony robbery. Said lucky punk didn’t show up for his court date either.
Also in the Lower East Side at the East Broadway Station, a man stabbed another man in the ass as he was going through the turnstile.
Again in the Lower East Side, a man shot his roommate in the stomach to settle a domestic dispute inside their apartment at a public housing building.
In Chelsea, a man shoplifting myriad products from a department store threatened a security guard with scissors who tried to stop him from jetting.

About 20 cops were deployed to make these absurdly dystopian arrests.
What’s truly deranged about these collars is that part of D.A. Bragg’s memo states that trespassing should not be prosecuted if there isn’t harm involved and yet the NYPD is violating that and also the Constitution
Also in the Upper West Side and Washington Heights, three fires were set by debris left on the tracks of three train stations, adding to the rise of “smoke conditions” in the subway in the last year.

The rapper is signed to music label run by Dr. Dre and Tom Petty’s long time producer and had a prior gun possession arrest when he got caught with a semi-auto when he was 14. He was able to easily “decarcerate” himself from the attempted murder charge and pay the $200,000 bail with the money he got from his major label contract, but got arrested again because he was already on probation for his last gun offense and is back in a juvenile correctional facility.

In Fordham Heights, a space heater left on for days malfunctioned and caught fire and spread throughout an apartment inside a Mitchell-Lama residential building which spread to other units and caused the fire and smoke to reached all the way to the higher floors through the stairs. The 5-alarm blaze injured 60 residents and killed 17 people, 8 of them children who died from smoke inhalation and left dozens of tenants homeless. The 200 strong FDNY was able to battle the inferno despite not having enough oxygen and less personnel in their engine and ladder stations because of the Omicron contagion (and the unspoken of vaccine extortion mandate being administered by designated NYC Health Commissioner Dave Chokshi)
Besides the space heater, the other cause of the fire’s spread was because of a door that was left open, which the FDNY and Mayor Adams initially implied fault towards the tenants for not taking precaution, but it turned out that the doors were already faulty and didn’t self close despite an inspection by the D.O.B. that reported it as functional back in July.
The real affordable housing building, which had a long list of violations for years, is owned and managed by a LLC consortium of three venture capital firms which includes real estate developer who’s the son of a major connected developer of most of the luxury public housing apartments that were built during the de Blasio era of iniquity inequity and whose partner was one of the 750 advisors on Mayor Adams transition apparatus who happened to be on the list to advise him on housing issues.

Over 1,100 cars were reported stolen in Eric Adams first month on the job as mayor, double the amount of the past two years in the same month. The most disturbing of all was for shootings, exactly 100, a 25% hike compared to last January, even as the Mayor revived and rebranded the NYPD anti-gun task force. Seven of eight felony categories also had massive increases, leading to a 38% rise total violent offenses in only four weeks time. Showing that recidivists are not the least bit deterred by a cop running the city. But at least the hellish month crime wave was enough for D.A. Bragg to re-elevate the charges for the crimes he diminished that were deemed for prosecution, even if they were only a few of them. All it had to take was for people to die to belatedly alter their own perceptions on crime.
Ozone Park, Queens, New York City
With a month to go until the eviction moratorium expires on January 15th (Martin Luther King’s birthday, SMDFH), hundreds of thousands of city residents will either repay their debts to their landlords or probably get evicted from their apartment aka homes. As this crisis gets closer with each passing second and as the weather gets colder, the other and brighter side of life in New York Fucking City should not got unacknowledged…
New York City rents have overtaken San Francisco as the most expensive in the US, a sign the Big Apple is outpacing the West Coast tech hub’s financial recovery.
The median one-bedroom rental in the boroughs is now $2,810, compared to a midway price point of $2,800 in the Golden City, according to a new study by online rental platform Zumper.
It’s the first time New York has outpriced San Francisco since Zumper started tracking data in 2014, as many New Yorkers that fled the city amid COVID-19 concerns have returned, according to the study.
“People returned to New York as indoor dining and other urban amenities that make the city popular became available again. Rent began to rise as a result … That hasn’t happened in San Francisco,” according to the study.
A middle of the road one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan at the beginning of the pandemic cost about $3,417, according to StreetEasy. That figure plummeted to $2,700 as many left the city, creating the lowest rents there in more than a decade.
Good news every tenant in New York City, THE RENT IS TOO DAMN HIGH AGAIN!. Truly a monumental event and a sign that the recovery for all of us that Mayor de Blasio has been repetitively been talking about is about to come to fruition, at least for those that count. Meaning those that are able to count what little savings they have. Because if the rents are going up again, surely this trend will trickle down to the perpetually housing insecure via the city’s Housing New York program to build and preserve affordable housing for the city’s desperate and downtrodden who pay 1/3 of their check in rent right?
Of course not. As I pointed out last year of an apartment building in west Soho (which is called Hudson Square now to make it even nichier), The Blaz’s affordable housing program is a fucking ruse and a hoax. And now after 8 years of “affordable housing”development usually sprouting in establish gentrification colonizer Brooklyn nabes like Williamsburg, Bushwick and Greenpoint and even in Queens enclaves like Astoria, Rockaway, Long Island City and quasi/pseudo-Brooklyn nabe Ridgewood, this inequitable farce and impossible to win lottery city program has sprouted in the most unlikeliest of towns in Southside Queens, Ozone Park.
When the Department of Housing and Urban Development announced the debut and opened the lottery for this building this year in March, it was quite a surprise to see it still looked like this three months later.
And also that it was “anticipated” to be completed around the winter solstice in 2020.
Another thing about this “affordable housing” anomaly is how the city touted this as part of the Housing Connect program, when the qualifications for accessing these apartments is set up for people who make 30% and 60% more than the average median income of the zip code and even the whole borough of Queens of which the AMI is actually around $61,000, barely above the threshold for applying for one of these $1,600 studios. What’s even more outlandish is how wide the income earning window is for them, because even if you make over a hundred large you can still qualify, if living in an abode where the kitchen and your bed is in the same space is your style. Then there is also the fact that the lottery winning tenant still has to pay for ALL utilities, but I guess if you are making 150 grand and renting a one room apartment for $2,000, it’s wont make much of a dent in your wallet or savings account as it would to the average middle class or working poor renter around the hood.
To make this even more farcical, usually when the city designates a building for it’s Housing New York program, it usually labels it as such while still in the skeletal phase of development like in the pics above and the aforementioned Soho luxury public housing tower. But closer inspection found something very incriminating confirming the hoax of de Blasio’s affordable housing scam and his fair city for all platitude slogan with this advertisement plastered on the temporary wall:
Now why would the owners and management of this “affordable housing” building advertise it with an private agency contact when it’s on the city government’s Housing Connect website? And what’s more outlandishly egregious is why it’s being advertised as “Luxury” which is not only misleading but wholly antithetical to de Blasio’s and his housing and preservation department lackeys intent to bring housing equity to the long suffering housing insecure, homeless, rent burdened citizens and gentrification refugees of New York City?
But since this is so eye catching, lets take a look at what kind of luxury the developers are peddling here with this.
Nothing defines luxury than a balcony, even if there is barely room for two people to stand on.
But after you win the housing lottery for these luxurious one-bedroom palaces, you’ll get to immerse yourself with these views of Ozone Park’s sights with a tumbler of single malt scotch or a can of four loco like a boss; sights like Rockaway Boulevard one of Queens most expansive traffic arteries and the homey two way traffic trail on 87th St.
Where you might just wake up in the middle of the night to see real live fast and furious drag racing and cars spinning in circles. Pure vibrancy in action!
And if speed is not your thing, you can also admire Queens car culture from above with vehicles waiting on line to get into the luxury car wash next door and other vehicles coming out and being stored at the luxury car rental chain business across the street.
And other transcendent sights like the neighboring rock quarry and cement lot, the seminal sources of how your luxury pad got made.
Of course nothing defines luxury lifestyle living than quality infrastructure. Surely flooding won’t be an issue with a storm drain like this.
What’s even funnier is the city’s housing connect website’s advertisement of this farcical luxury public housing building and the amenities offered for the fortunate lottery winning tenants. Even if these “amenities” are actually services that have always been available to them and the general public since the invention of fire like bus stops and subways and “pedestrian friendly walk score” (???!!!) or has they are known to the general public as “sidewalks”. The other hilarious amenity that’s falsely advertised is the playground, which is either on the roof or is referring to the nearest one about 5 blocks away by Atlantic Ave. on the border with Woodhaven, because this surely isn’t going to be placed by the vacuum machines at the car wash or above the “covered” garage.
But what about the actual affordable abodes? Well looks like everything will be conveniently at arms reach for the lucky lottery tenants.
This wall here? That’s the bedroom.
At least the finished project and product won’t look so bad right? Well, only when compared to when it still had scaffolding. Here’s what “affordable luxury” looks like in 2021.
Pretty standard and bland. I guess this can be easily abbreviated as a blandered building.
Apparently, this is the entrance of the building. Nothing is more welcoming than seeing an exit sign facing you as you are about to enter your luxury apartment.
Now I’m not an architect, but placing these HVAC’s on the pavement really looks like a massive shit idea and makes me wonder what the developers were thinking when they gave this the o.k. or even if they were in the board room when this was designed. I also wonder if the LLC even visited this site or even this state or country as this was being built.
Given the violent flash flooding the city has been getting, especially in Queens as Ida exposed and Sandy before her, there has to be some mitigation to prevent inevitable damage to these HVACs, but the LLC actually did. Well at least they considered it.
This right here. This three patches on the predominantly concrete sidewalk is going to protect the tenants from the elements of climate change. Although the floor to ceiling windows above their HVACs surely won’t help much either, bad enough they have to deal with lookie-loos and skells casing their luxurious places out with relative ease.
Doesn’t look like they are going to consider planting trees here or even setting up a bioswale.
There’s a bigger triangular patch of pseudo green space around the corner too to keep the back door tenants at ease. At least this has a drain and although that garage sure will turn into a reservoir when Sandy Jr. comes.
Speaking of the garage, residents will be pulling out into a very less than ample two way street, which will be very challenging for them and commuters to see each other coming.
Also looks like they are heralding the grand opening and also the holidays with some festive decorations
But of course the biggest farce of all is the fact that the developers behind this will still get that sweet 421a tax break for volunteering in the NYC HDP’s near decade long “affordable housing” ruse. And surely the six figure earning demographic will also strongly benefit, since the city has devoted over 80% of these new apartments to them. And the well-to-do housing insecure shouldn’t get intimidated from playing the luxury public housing lottery get these apartments with real estate fanzine news blogs like Brick Underground giving them sage advice with advertorial tripe like this:
Authored by intrepid publicists for mega developer TF Cornerstone, when posited the question directly to their big money-earning readership, they quip “You probably do. Affordable housing programs have expanded to include a wide range of middle-income households” (middle income based on the ossified AMI that includes suburban upper class enclaves in Westchester) and when positing the obvious question of why do you need the government to find you a rental that you can find yourself given your comfortable income, they do note that it might take a while to move in if they qualify (especially with this luxury box here) but it’s worth it for all the money they will save. But what usually winds up happening is that these prospective savvy clients either wind up getting a cheaper place with more room or a dumbass one who will give the landlord what he/she wants for a shitty walkup hovel for 3 large a month in Brooklyn.
That’s another thing about the fraudulent housing connect program, because the objective was to keep building and building all this luxury public housing in the hopes that affordability will trickle down to build even more buildings with more incremental amounts of affordable housing to the affordability in the private housing sector, but it’s quite obvious that is not the case, which was tragically exposed by Hurricane Ida when a dozen people lost their lives trapped by the rushing deluge of water from the storm as they slept in their basement apartments. This brought overdue attention to the affordable housing ruse when it was revealed that over 100,000 NYC residents are renting basement and cellars and other illegal conversions dwellings, proving once and for all that the equity Mayor de Blasio and his sociopath housing commish Vicki Been of the brazen lie it is. Although attention to this existential dimension of the city’s housing crisis should have been exposed when a boy died in a cellar fire where his family lived from a e-bike battery that exploded as it was being charged in this same neighborhood where that luxury public housing box is.
And the luxury public Housing Connect difficulties has even modest money earning citizens have to depend on the basement rental market and predatory scumlords looking for a cheap hustle, like when a cop listed a basement of a house he was renting and ripped off a woman after she gave him rent and deposit for $2,800 dollars which makes the actual rent out to $1,400, which was already steep and about 200 bucks less than what Housing Connect considers affordable in Ozone Park where this grift also took place. This bastard did this to many other marks as well until the actual owner of the house kicked his ass out. Because where else are people desperate for a decent place to live supposed to go when their city prioritized housing for an upper income bracket demographic populace that don’t exist over them?
And signs are showing it’s going to get worse. NY Post again:
Despite consecutive quarters of plummeting rents across the city following the March 2020 onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel for certain landlords.
Queens has seen its highest-priced tier of rentals — or homes priced more than $2,500 per month — recover 99% of its pre-pandemic highs, according to just-released data from real-estate portal StreetEasy. That makes this borough’s high-end rental market the first in New York City to reach recovery in the wake of COVID.
It means that renters have flocked to prime Queens neighborhoods, including Long Island City and Astoria, instead of normally more expensive Manhattan and Brooklyn — ratcheting up housing demand in the process and making luxury property landlords raise their prices, StreetEasy adds.
But for many, the rent can be too damn high. The borough’s lower- and mid-tier rental homes are far from their pre-pandemic levels, with StreetEasy adding that prices have only recently begun to recover — and are doing so slowly. That means, depending on renters’ budgets, there are still deals to be had.
Overall, when compared to Manhattan and Brooklyn, Queens still remains relatively more affordable. Queens’ median rent was $2,200 in July — whereas for Manhattan it was $3,000 and, for Brooklyn, $2,600. The report does not mention The Bronx or Staten Island.
In the first quarter of 2021, as rents across the city continued to fall to record lows, Queens saw median rents slip to $1,999. For Manhattan and Brooklyn, they fell to a respective $2,700 and $2,390.
When newspapers are describing 2 grand as affordable they are basically doing the real estate lobbies job for them. Even more warped is when local businesses participate in the hype too. This realty business (formerly a TV repair shop) is only 4 blocks away from 86-15 Rockaway LLC’s building.
Adding to the palpable threat of imminent gentrification of Ozone Park is that this comes after recent City Council decisions majorly favoring new rezones for luxury public housing towers in Gowanus and Soho/Noho on social justice fallacies, claiming that they were mostly populated by rich White people. Well, ironically it was White people actually had an influence on those development rezones in the form of gentrification industrial complex real estate lobby organization Open New York For All, whose flack just wrote a piece the other day for the NY Daily News begging incoming Mayor Eric Adams to rubber stamp more rezoning on towns perceived to have luxury housing, which he falsely distinguishes as regular one and two family houses. These creeps at Open New York, who have a devoted cult on social media claiming to be experts on cities called Urbanists are like real estate scientologists who are not even from NYC and the ones that happen to live here are transients, manage to infiltrate and astroturf every community board hearing about affordable housing development proposals, never thinking the luxury public housing ratio is three times higher than the “affordable” housing and how that will make the city’s area median income rate even higher, which certainly happened when the rental market exploded in the last year (before COVID fucked up the market and brought the rents down).
And therein lies the crux of NYC’s luxury public housing connection, approve the rezoning to build these towers with incremental supply of “affordable housing” (and also the box buildings with units under the false rubric of affordability) and the market rate apartments that make up the majority of them turns the area into a “luxury upper class” neighborhood. Just like with what’s going on here with this Rockaway LLC’s box building.
It also helps the Open New York manufactured fauxgressive narrative when the neighborhood suddenly draws upscale real estate developer interest on vacant properties.
As is wont of departing Mayor Bill de Blasio and his demonic deputy mayors who manufactured this farce, nice little calimari Alicia Glen and Vicki Been, everything about NYC Housing Connect is pure grift and an abject betrayal of hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers still left wanting for a decent comfortable place to live, but a boon to the lucky fortunate few who won the lottery or could afford to live in these overpriced hovels after winning the lottery.
It’s also a big boon to the aforementioned Open New York cabal and cult, who consist of pasty White real estate investors who will certainly make big coin from the tower pestilence hyper-development that has been approved by the feckless city council cronies that they handily influenced and will again with the new crop of sell out shit libs that were recently elected.
The biggest boon of course will easily go to the developers again, known and unknown, the nucleus of the Gentrification Industrial Complex of real estate, government, lobbying and media as they continue to get everything they want from their purchasing of officials. From the easily obeisant and compromised de Blasio (and eventually to the corporatist Eric Adams) who spewed gaslighting platitudes of diversity and equity while they got to bathe in the crapulence of his whorish rubber stamped rezoning and upzoning approvals while rents everywhere will keep going up and up, spurred by the fabrication/speculation of the rental market spurred by city’s luxury public housing program.
