With issues like gentrification and displacement of marginalized communities as well as the redevelopment of the Jamaica/Southeast Queens area, those of us who are from the area have a lot to think and worry about.

*Hey everyone! I just want to let you know that if you enjoy my blog and want to see it continue, please consider supporting it by donating at the side (–>). Any amount is welcomed. Thanks!
* I was thinking about creating an official logo for my blog. I have a basic design based on the initials of my full name S.V.F., the drawing for Aker and the chnoubis. I am not an artist, so I don’t have any way of fleshing it out. If anyone is an artist and interested in creating a better version based on the logo and images below, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any chosen will have a post dedicated to them (and maybe I’ll write a poem for you, too)!
