Fifteen years ago, Roosevelt Avenuethe border between Elmhurst and Jackson Heights from the BQE east to Junction Boulevardwas mainly Colombian.
That is correct. Roosevelt Ave. and all the streets in Jackson Heights were a much better place back then. The Colombian people made it a much better place than what it is today. I wish Jackson Heights was like it was then. It was a nice place to go to then.

I've lived in Jackson Heights almost all my life and Roosevelt avenue used to be dead, super empty at night. There were a cluster of stores between 90th and 82nd and a handful of businesses along the way. As far as the Colombian people, they are still there in the same quantities. There are a LOT more Ecuadorean and Mexicans now though, is that why you think Jackson Heights is not as good of a place as it used to be? Don't worry, it will gentrify soon enough.
