Fifteen years ago, Roosevelt Avenue - the border between Elmhurst and Jackson Heights from the BQE east to Junction Boulevard - was 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.
