    Not only will this be a coup for the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation but a coup to the Jamaica area, which finally (and hopefully) this may be the move to spur more good development, cleanup the area and bring in more quality businesses. Let's face it Jamaica cannot go any lower to the bottom, it is already there, so there is no where to go but up. There is too much potential here to continually be wasted over and over again.

    But if they do not cleanup the area and create good development, this place will just be a waste and sit, just like the retail space under the overpass, all that space (and money) has been sitting empty for a couple of years with the exception of the one space which recently has a god awful bus shuttle terminal to take people to the gambling resort (which goes against the funding for this space, it was to only be retail).

    I still try to keep somewhat of an optimistic attitude because I do live here and want to see change. Remember though many areas of Manhattan and Brooklyn were bad areas that eventually turned around. This can still happen to Jamaica, but only with top notch leadership willing to stick their neck out, take action and follow through, which we have none of those types of leaders as of yet.

    But you have to at least try something, otherwise your alternative is nothing, which solves nothing. Pretty much what our leaders are doing now, NOTHING.
