Speaking to Fox News, Frias said: ‘Like most of my like-minded residents, we see this as a third-world market.

‘Basically, you just see clothes thrown across the floor the items are stolen from donation bins or stolen from stores, and they just set up shop outside brick-and-mortar businesses. 

‘They take away trade from these businesses and don’t pay taxes. There are no repercussions, they get a free pass.’

The footage was captured on the edge of AOC’s 14th Congressional District, and is often seen as the most culturally diverse in Queens. 

Vendors can be seen lining the streets with mounds of clothes stacked beside them, while others sell sneakers, toys and other miscellaneous items. 

As the clip ends, a group of three people can be seen with a stall covering a pedestrian crossing with boxes covering the road. 

New York City laws stipulate that only licensed vendors are permitted to sell food or goods in public spaces. 

Sharing the video to social media, Frias added: ‘This is a constant issue for this community and the lawlessness must be addressed immediately.

‘Individuals can’t even make it to any entrance of the 90th street station without going through a maze of vendors and prostitutes milling round. 

Due to the conditions, Frias is now running for the Assembly District 39 as a Republican in a bid to clean up the streets

Frias added that prostitutes blatantly flaunt themselves on the streets at all times of the day.

He told Fox: ‘They do whatever they please, they are open about it and not discreet. 

‘They line up all along 90th street in front of a pizzeria, a 99-cent store and just try to pull men. 

‘You’ll see multiple women in scantily clad clothing. Now it’s cold, they are a bit covered up, but it will get worse in the summer.’

Prostitution is considered a Class B misdemeanor in New York, punishable by up to three months in jail and/or up to a $500 fine. 

Patronizing a prostitute is a Class A misdemeanor and punishable by up to one year in prison and/or up to a $1,000 fine.

The New York Police Department raided six establishments allegedly engaging in prostitution in the area, with Mayor Eric Adams present. 

At the time, Adams said: ‘Sex trafficking is real … and we’re not going to sit idly by and pretend that it’s not happening.’

Due to the conditions, Frias is now running for the Assembly District 39 as a Republican in a bid to clean up the streets.

Assembly member Catalina Cruz currently holds the seat and she told Fox that a group of officials are working on ‘safe solutions for quality of life concerns’. 

Frias is calling for radical change, saying: ‘I have lived here my whole life, I’ve seen the changes go from good, too bad to worse, and it’s at that peak of worse right now, and I don’t want it to go past that.’
