it’s a real pity too because a lot of the new buildings are quite posh, if they got rid of the strip club on queens plaza north that would go quite a ways in making the area better


As a resident of the neighborhood…I can’t wait until the owners get cited or the city decides to send over a cleaning crew to take care of that problem. One would think that the Comfort Inn on that block would take the initiative and just clean it up, as it is their current hotel guests that look at the area right when they step out of their building. This would lead to negative reviews on hotel rating sites. CLEAN IT UP FOR GOSH SAKES! IT’S AN ABSOLUTE MESS AND GIVE THE NEIGHBORHOOD A TERRIBLE REPUTATION!!
