There needs to be more of a police presence. This neighborhood is going downhill. It’s becoming scary the last few months.

The police are too busy looking for easy tickets on Roosevelt. This area of east Elmhurst get patrolled minimally if at all. This is now the 4th incidence of violence to people in Jackson Heights and East Elmhurst. Where are the police??? Whining about folks giving them no respect? RESPECT HAS TO BE EARNED.
