Businesses on Jamaica Avenue 78 - Woodhaven

1- There is a liquor store on Jamaica Avenue between 86th and 85th street on the north side (park side) of the street, I forget the name, that has posted a sign indicating the minimum charge is $12.00. I know recently (2010) and unfortunately Congress passed a law indicating a $10.00 minimum for credit card purchases is legal. However, there is no information indicating that $12.00 is legal.  2- Why are there so many 99 cents stores, corner bodegas, nail salons, and barber shops on EVERY BLOCK? If you want the neigborhood to grow and lure upscale businesses and residence limit these types of stores. It brings the whole neigborhood down. We don't need another 99 cent store. It's starting to look like the South Bronx or worse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3- What's up with Sanitation parking like crazy people at 8 am every morning taking up blocks and blocks of space? Yes they are entitled to a break, but can they park legally or stagger their times. It's terrible...the hands are filthy and they are touching the counters and doors at every Bodega 86- 89th street.

David, I'm just coming across this post from last year. I am a Director of the Woodhaven Residents' Block Association and wanted to let you know that the WRBA will be holding a Town Hall this weekend, April 18, 2015, at Emanuel Church 93-12 91st Avenue, Wooodhaven, addressing the situation of businesses in the community. Representatives from the Woodhaven Business Improvement District and the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation are expected to be in attendance. It would be great if you show up and voice your concerns. The press will be in attendance too.
