If you mean Cuban Jimmy Valdes's house- right next door to it! it was never raided because Jimmy took care of the boys in blue. The cops from the Miller Ave Pct, as we called it, used to pull right up in front and would go in and get serviced, one by one. One day, I forgot to move my car to the other side of the street and a marked car was parked right behind mine. Lucked out- no ticket! Guess they had other things on their mind- and elsewhere! Bet the Knapp Commission never heard of that one! He also owned the bodega on the corner of Jamaica Ave and Marginal Street East. Hey, how did you know about that place. I promise I won't tell Cupcakes!!!
