Back off guys. The Polish have contributed hugely to JC over the years.

As a person of the Polish committee, OP's post really rubs me the wrong way. "Why do Polish people hate trees" -- really?

I'm way more concerned about Paco & Taco leaving their poops on Columbus drive and the general state of disarray of the block between the Grove PATH and Barrow then a set of gray, steel doors.

The OP does either not understand the word "blight", or is simply trying to attract attention to tree-cutting and loud parties.


Not that I agree with the OP, but

blight (blt)
n.
1.
a. Any of numerous plant diseases resulting in sudden conspicuous wilting and dying of affected parts, especially young, growing tissues.
b. The condition or causative agent, such as a bacterium, fungus, or virus, that results in blight.
2. An extremely adverse environmental condition, such as air pollution.
3. Something that impairs growth, withers hopes and ambitions, or impedes progress and prosperity.
v. blight?ed, blight?ing, blights
v.tr.
1. To cause (a plant, for example) to undergo blight.
2. To have a deleterious effect on; ruin. See Synonyms at blast.
v.intr.
To suffer blight.

OP wrote "a blight on 6th St", using a noun. So (1) and (2) are out, and I don't see how (3) applies, either.


I was looking at the OP's first sentence where he wrote "to blight". Regardless, the OP can't write.

I've lived on 6th, just a few houses down from this building, for 4 years. Damn, never heard or saw a party other than a kid's communion.

If you're going to start a crusade against a property,PLEASE, PLEASE pick the abandoned/boarded up house bet. Erie and Jersey. Their debris falls into our yard, and we're worried it will some day kit our kids.

Only empty Coronas, but no Żywiec bottles? ?Muy interesante!

POLSKA.

Sure, the exterior looks straight up communist, but in fact from what I understand it is quite nice inside. It's not a 'flop house.'

The building is owned by a polish man, and it's a rental property on a 'need to know a guy' basis. A friend of mine looked at an apartment on the top floor and said it was very nice. Modern, new appliances, etc.

Based on those photos, those trees looked completely dead. If they'd fallen and landed on a house, car or a person, then you'd complain that they did nothing about the dead trees. Now you complain that they cut trees down. If you have proof that people live there illegally, then go file formal complaints at the appropriate outlets.

I'm insulted that Polish immigrants are being fed Corona more than anything else.

I'm pretty sure it was a pine and either a Japanese black pine or pitch pine by its habit.

Really jim, do you have nothing better to do than complain about what landscaping measures someone takes on their OWN PRIVATE PROPERTY?!?!?

Blight - verb, transitive; to cut down two trees.

The so-called "Polish Army Veterans Community"* center on Sixth Street (at Jersey Ave) is continuing its efforts to blight the neighborhood (see pics below).

This weekend, they cut down two big trees on their land. One was a large fir, the other was a perennial that had been cut back severely after one of its branches died but was otherwise in good health. Previously, they cut down a beautiful magnolia/dogwood tree in the front yard.

Backstory here:

http://jclist.com/modules/newbb/viewt ... id=187627#forumpost187627

It's time to say it like it is: This is NOT a center for Polish veterans. It's a flophouse for young polish immigrants who rent out the basement for parties that leave the sidewalk littered with cigarette butts and empty Corona bottles.

While the rest of the neighborhood has made strides in recent years, with many buildings being refurbished and restored to their original historic glory, the Polish center keeps its grey metal doors and its ghetto fence. (And why do Polish people hate trees so much?)

It's time for the neighborhood -- and Americans of Polish descent who are surely embarrassed at what's been done in their name -- to demand that this place be closed or taken over by responsible management.

*Quote marks indicate that there is precious little evidence of any of these things at the building.
