A Message From Our CEO
When the Greater Jamaica Development Corporation (GJDC) was established over 55 years ago, New York City was experiencing one of its worst fiscal crises and Jamaica, Queens, was in decline. Area stakeholders banded together and formed GJDC to spearhead the revitalization of Jamaica across all sectors — residential, business and recreation.
