Follow Up: Blogging the Borough of Dreams
Queens bloggers have been overshadowed by their colleagues in Brooklyn. We attempt to remedy the oversight with Meg Cotner of OuterB and Joey in Astoria, Kel Sawyer of The Progressive Southside, and Steve Tiszenkel of Queens Central.
Which bus route do you use to get to Jamaica Center (E/J/Z)?
[south jamaica | baisley pond]
A photographic journey of observations, development, and the community happenings of residential South Jamaica and Baisley Pond. This neighborhood SO south of Jamaica Queens is not devoid of hype. Well-kept homes with manicured lawns on tree-lined streets have been eclipsed, thanks to the hip-hop culture and negative press that only focuses on drugs and crime. There are upwardly mobile, hard working residents here with purpose and wealth who reside here. New businesses, new neighbors and dreams are planted weekly. This blog will attempt to highlight them all. This is the REAL Southside. If you are a resident of South Jamaica or Baisley Pond Park, we welcome you to help us tell the progressive story in words and pictures.
