How terribly sad. When will the 114th start to seriously address what’s happening on and around 30th Ave? The entire stretch is a disaster from 31st to 45th Streets every weekend and most weekday evenings. Speeding, illegally modified vehicles, noise violations, and now how many shootings in the last 6 weeks? The quickly dwindling tax base is going to be non existent if something doesn’t change soon. If the pandemic didn’t scare people off, this kind of nonsense certainly will finish the job.

The entire city is going to hell in a hand basket…. its sickening to watch New York City plunge back into the days of my youth when NY was a jungle of drugs , gangs, street crime and poverty.
