The Corona And Rego Park Horrors

With rents going up yet again despite the omnipresence of COVID, there are still not many alternatives for working poor and even middle class citizens of New York City. This concern is even more illuminated after I received  a tweet from long-time ally and arbiter on all shithole houses and buildings Queens Crapper about a certain house in Corona, one of the hotbeds and namesake of the virus that took over the world and still won’t go away (mostly exacerbated by government incompetence and addiction to power and control, but that’s another story).

Located on Van Doren St. abutting 108 St and Corona Ave., this multi-family house has been abandoned for over a decade. And according to Department of Buildings records, it hasn’t been inspected for a decade as well. Apparently there was interior work being done on this home the last time the DOB was here in 2011 and after a bathroom collapsed through the ceiling and the ticket was resolved, the owner and the DOB just gave up on it.

Following this tweet and request by Crappy, this horror house had to be seen in the flesh to believed.

So this is what a decade of owner and city  unaccountability has done to another home.

 

 

Notice the brick wall there, it’s hard to tell if it belongs to the house in question to keep out intruders or was put up by the neighboring house for that reason, but a look on the abandoned house’s side clearly shows it’s not much of a deterrent.

Despite the big hole on the ceiling and the house’s shaky foundation , obviously this home has been a dependable venue for squatting and for drug abuse, or maybe even for house parties judging by this appetizing tray of chicken found in the backyard.

Also found in the backyard, a clear indication of a massive fire that took place, displayed by the stain on paneling, the blown out windows and charred pile of wood and debris leaning up against what looks like the basement entrance.

Of course it’s hard to tell when this blaze happened or how it was caused because the Department Of Buildings under Mayor’s Mike Bloomberg and Bill de Blasio and in the district currently represented by Councilman Francisco Moya, Senator Catalina Cruz, and Rep. Grace Meng in the U.S. Capitol, has no official record of a fire at the house. Which is disturbingly weird since all fires are required to be taken into account in profile updates.

Of course when discussing the perpetual divine comedy that is the housing issue in New York City, this horror house cannot be complete without acknowledging real estate speculation/fabrication. Because despite the deliberate lack of monitor oversight of this shithole disaster area, there is serious listing on the value of this on the market.

 

Sure your eyes may be deceiving you, but yes this shithole is worth a million fucking dollars. Million and fifty to be nearly precise, a far cry to when the house was bought for mindboggling 35 grand only 30 years ago. And whoever listed this made sure to deceive your eyes by taking this picture on the sunniest time of the day on some undetermined date, but most obviously the pic has been filtered and contrasted to wash off the graffiti, although you can still see the bubble tag that is still above the front door that’s there today. Also blatantly deceptive is the top part of the house with the blown out windows is not shown and those ugly ass shrubs aren’t there anymore and it’s a mystery about when they were removed. Or maybe they were photoshopped there.

It’s really a wonder how the city never considered this spot for it’s “affordable housing” program and buy with the way de Blasio has wantonly spent hundreds of millions of dollars for homeless mitigation efforts to rent hotel rooms and bail out cluster building slumlords. But here we are and here this horror house of Corona will continue to stand.

But it’s not the only shithole in the Middle East of Queens, about 5 miles away in Rego Park stands another abandoned formerly modest two-family house. on Wetherhole St, just a hundred feet from bustling Woodhaven Blvd and a quick walk from the Queens Center Mall.

It’s also marked with graffiti, but not with the urban street art kind. This property is marked like something akin to sights seen in Warsaw or Berlin in the 1930’s. Some anti-Semites decided to label this neglected house as “The Jewish Home”.

Evidently someone was not too fond of the residents here, not only of their faith but of their vices. But the author of these messages here didn’t see the distinction between the two. There’s also some weird numerology nonsense going on here but it’s the address of the house, and it’s actually wrong.

Clearly there’s evidence of squatters once occupying this house as well. But it still must be better than de Blasio’s rank shelters. Even the hotels, although I don’t think there any around this particular town.

   

                     

According to the habitually insouciant D.O.B., they actually have been to this dump as recently as October and from the violations and the tarp and the shitty cement patch job on the steps it seems the house is being renovated.  It’s surprising The King of Queens, who lived a few blocks down from here with his hot wife and Frank Castanza, didn’t notice this dump while making deliveries 

This property is worth nearly $940,000 (check out the filtering on the picture of this shithole, looks like it’s company policy to embellish the shit out of houses) but at least the owner is trying to salvage it somewhat but is doing quite a shitty job of it while pissing off his neighbors maintaining it’s current blighted state instead of selling it to the city. But this and the Corona Horror only serving as another travesty monument to the city’s abominable record of unaccountability and adding to the already massive of lack of real affordable housing. Where they will certain to remain eyesores in their neighborhoods for evermore.

New Bad Days 90: The Descent Of Times Square Continues With Psycho Pushing Woman Into A Moving Train And A Man Shooting Himself While Taking A Piss At The Same Station, And A Thief Running Down And Killing A Woman While Fleeing With A Stolen Celly; Jewel Runner Gang Gets Kettled By The NYPD During Another High End Heist; Murdered Harlem Druglord Gets His Comeuppance For Past Killings And Being A Government Snitch; App Food Delivery Man Gets Murdered For His Ebike; Subway Crime Rates Rise Again With Man Shooting A Commuter For His Celly And Man Punching A Woman In The Face For Talking Back To Him; Wild West Shootings And Shootouts From Gunslinging Gangbangers Of All Ages Are Going Down Night And Day; Bagged Dead Body Found By Luxury Public Housing Development; Reckless Driving Hits New Plateaus With Hit-And-Run Killings; Pyromaniac Attempts To Torch Deli With Molotovs; Man Gets Yelled At By His Mother And Climbs A Tree; Vaccinations Cannot Stop Violence In Gold Standard Schools And The Elderly Continue To Get Preyed Upon By Desperate And Maniacal Perps

To start off chapter 90 of the New Bad Days chronicles of New York City, here is this tweet straight from some putz who works for NYC Council, trying to snarkily dispel any criticism or even palpable evidence that the city they represent is “dead”. Well it may not be dead, but it sure is bleeding, wounded and fucking more dangerous than it’s been in over 20 years (and fucking broke as well but that’s for another inevitable post) with 121 percent more shootings this month compared to October 2020, emphasized by the shooting deaths of teenagers in gun and gang violence. And all this is happening during Mayor deBacle’s recovery for all of us.

In October’s post about NYPD’s compstat index crime stats on the NYC Mayor’s website and despite how it was pathetically white washed, there were 399 murders committed in 2021 which is just 8 shy of the total for the entire year of 2020. Other crimes that have exceeded the totals of last year are rapes with 1,241, robberies with 10,822, grand larcenies with 30,768 (!!!!) and auto theft with 8,084 (the only “improvement” is the decrease in burglaries even though there were still 10,000 committed).

Keep up the snark city council cronies, because those red flags only symbolize the blood that’s spilled this month and all year long.

Manhattan

In Times Square at the 42nd St. Station, a woman got up from a bench and randomly pushed another woman off the platform and missed killing her by a second as the 1 train was arriving, but still caused serious injuries to the victim who fell back onto the concrete from the impact of getting hit by the train. Then the woman casually walked away.

The mentally ill woman had multiple priors for charges of assault and robbery, her most recent offenses were robbing a cellphone after scratching a woman’s face and savagely beating down a woman on the A train after getting into and argument with a man who shoved her and a judge released her with a desk appearance ticket for breaking her victim’s nose and knocking her teeth out. This time a smart judge imprisoned her on $100,000 bail and charged her with murder.

Also in Times Square and also at the same station, a man shot himself in the leg while taking a piss on the platform.

Again in Times Square at the 42nd St. Station on 8th Ave., a homeless man ripped the wallet out of another man’s hand after he refused to give him money.

And again in Times Square, a man yelled racial slurs and threatened to stab a woman on the street in broad daylight.

And again in Times Square, a homeless man snatched a cellphone off a woman on the street and then shoved another woman onto the pavement when he was running away. The woman wound up in a coma after landing her head on the curb from the fall and died from her injury days later, leading the judge to charge him with murder at his arraignment.

And again in Times Square, a homeless man committed suicide by lying  on the asphalt under a parked box truck as the driver was unaware he was there as he started moving and ran over him.

In Harlem, two boys were shot in the back and head inside a fried chicken restaurant while they were eating dinner.

Also in Harlem , a man got into a shootout with cops at his apartment when they showed up to arrest him on a warrant for an assault he committed on his girlfriend and kidnapped their child on the street in the late spring. Then the man committed suicide by blowing his brains out during a three hour standoff with the cops.

Again in Harlem, a belligerent reprobate opened an emergency window on a city bus and climbed out of it while two passengers held onto him since the bus was still moving. The reprobate then bit and spat on a mans hand who was holding him and spat on the other man as they were preventing the jerk from hurting himself.  When the bus stopped, the reprobate spat on the other man who reacted by pushing him out along with his shopping bags. The reprobate then built up a wad of saliva and snot in his mouth and wouldn’t leave until he spat on him again.

And again in Harlem, a 3-year-old boy fell out of a third floor apartment window and died through a crevice covered with cardboard that was taped next to an air conditioner when he playing on his bed.

And again in Harlem, a gang of four young men chased a 14-year-old boy down the street and into a city bus and then one of them shot at him twice, grazing his head and the bus driver on his hand.

And again in Harlem, an off-duty C.O. beat up his girlfriend in a domestic dispute at his apartment.

And again in Harlem, a 17-year-old boy got shot to death from a point blank blast to his chest when he came out of a McDonalds.

And again in Harlem, an infamous drug lord and FBI informant got shot to death while sitting in his pickup truck as he was dumping drugs out of his window thinking the cops were on his tail but it ultimately turned out to be rivals looking for revenge for a gangland murder of a fellow drug dealer and best friend 32 years ago. The dead snitch was also responsible for 12 other killings.

Also in East Harlem, a man crashed into a stone column while speeding on the exit ramp coming off the FDR Drive.

Again in East Harlem, an off-duty firefighter crashed his car into a parked vehicle while driving drunk.

And again in East Harlem, a man got killed while riding a citibike when he got hit by a car driven by a man with a suspended license.

And again in East Harlem, a man shot another man to death under a building scaffolding in the dead of night.

And again in East Harlem, a man known to be a nuisance in the area hassled a deli worker to give him store credit for loosies and threatened to shoot him when he got rejected. Then he went on a rampage and banged on the deli’s windows, which provoked the deli worker, who came out with a golf club, and his co-worker to chase him away. But the man remained and got into a tussle with the deli worker, who swung the club at him and missed him and then the man stabbed him to death.

In Midtown, a man bumped into a woman while riding his bike on the sidewalk and called her a xenophobic slur.

Also in Midtown, hundreds of people told Mayor de Blasio to go fuck himself and called him an asshole as he was marching in the Columbus Day Parade with his minion staffers, who collectively clapped their hands and cheered the mayor so his ears wouldn’t hear and his brain wouldn’t register the derision and loathing from his constituents who are sick of his big ugly face.

Again in Midtown, a man running to be mayor of New York City ran into ongoing traffic against the red light and got hit by a taxi cab and broke his arm.

And again in Midtown, a man got caught stealing baquettes by a pregnant worker from a high end chain bakery but escaped after he punched her and knocked her to the floor.

In the Upper West Side, a man shot another man who was sitting in his car while parked during a drive-by.

Also in the Upper West Side, a man riding a citibike on the expressway got killed when an unlicensed driver hit him with his car.

Again in the Upper West Side, three teenage boys accosted an 82-year-old woman inside a movie theater and then stole her purse. The hooligans also robbed another woman’s purse who saw the crime go down and robbed a man’s bookbag on the way out. If anything, since they were allowed inside the building, at least they were vaccinated.

And again in the Upper West Side, a 71-year-old man caught a stray bullet in the leg from gangbangers engaging in a shootout nearby an elementary school. Three suspects hopped in a car and fled the crime scene.

In the Upper East Side at the 63rd St./Lexington Ave. Station, a 16-year-old girl climbed down onto the trackbed and decided to commute by foot to Queens by going through the subway tunnel. The girl was met by cops at the 21 st./Queensbridge Station who removed her from the tracks.

Also in the Upper East Side, a super freaky woman with a microphone ambushed Mayor-elect Eric Adams on the sidewalk as he was walking to a campaign stump with his powerful elected Democrat Party allies and then she disrupted their booster rally by asking Adams if he’s a dirty cop.

Then the hilarious woman curses out fauxgressive council crony Ydanis Rodriguez and a security guard for getting in her way.

This is all you need to know about how they all felt about her presence. You can’t be afraid of a woman with powder on her tits.

Adams interrupted

In Washington Heights, a man got shot to death during a drug deal gone bad in front of an apartment building.

Also in Washington Heights, a man attacked a woman napping on a park bench and ripped off her clothes and then attacked another woman nine days later at the same park and tried to rip her clothes off at knifepoint but the woman fought back and ran.

Again in Washington Heights, a 7-year-old boy died in a fire inside an illegal conversion basement apartment that was caused by a faulty power strip. The blaze also left his grandmother, father and two other relatives who lived there homeless.

In NoMad, cops on patrol caught three men suspected of pulling off high end in a black Benz with tinted windows by a restaurant, and when two patrol cars cornered them the driver sped down the sidewalk and nearly ran over dozens of people milling in front of a restaurant, compelling one of the cops to shoot at the vehicle and blowing out the windows and windshield. Two of the thieves then abandoned the fancy car and ran, but the cops were able to catch and arrest one of them trying to escape. The perp is currently imprisoned on a weapons possession charge and $50,000 bail.

The NYPD is linking these gunpoint heists to one gang and estimate that over $4,000,000 in jewels have been plundered in the last 3 months in 3 of the 5 boroughs. A most recent one was days earlier in Tribeca, two men ambushed a diamond merchant by his car after he walked out of a posh barsteraunt and held him up at gunpoint and robbed $150,000 of jewels and ran away with them.

In the East Village, a gang three young men, one of whom was 14, beat down a man and stabbed him multiple times on the pavement and stole his scooter.

Also in the East Village, a man grabbed a 12-year-old girl’s crotch on a city bus and then she got off at the next stop.

Again in the East Village, a man stalked a disabled 80-year-old man to his apartment building and then held him up with a box cutter inside the elevator and robbed 60  bucks off him.

In Little Italy and the Lower East Side, a gangbanger went apeshit on random people on the streets; first he threatened a woman with a broken bottle at a cafe, then he snatched two butcher knives from a restaurant and used them to threaten random people including an elderly couple who were in his path. When the cops showed up and caught up to the lunatic, they tazed him multiple times but they had zero effect on him and then he broke north with the cops in pursuit while he was still wielding the knives and they tazed him again and shot at him but still couldn’t take him down until they finally trapped the skell and tazed him a few more times and cuffed him. Maybe it’s time to throw former commissioner William Bratton’s weak ass tazers in a garbage incinerator.

In Stuyvesant Town, a grown ass man got into an argument an 11-year-old girl and then socked her in the face and pulled her hair and then began to choke her and then punched a 15-year-old boy who tried to intervene after she and a bunch of kids were hassling him and a friend of his passing by them while walking their dogs.. The hipster strangler worked with a non-profit organization that was dedicated for helping troubled kids and young adults. He also was a board member although the NPO is claiming he never had such a position despite his name saying such on their website.

In the Lower East Side, a man walked toward a group of men on a street corner and shot a 16-year-old gangbanger to death point blank at his face and wounded another man on the knee in a gang-related attack. A man and his girlfriend fleeing the scene of the crime tried to take shelter in a nearby cineplex but was refused entry until they showed vaccine passports. The victim was scheduled to appear in court for an armed robbery offense and was previously charged with vandalizing a teachers car when he was 13 and also multiple muggings of Asian people and had a murder case against him that got sealed in the last few years of his short life.

Also in the Lower East Side, a man taking a break sitting on a park bench after midnight after delivering food for an app-food service company got accosted by a stranger who sat down next to him and demanded he give him his ebike. Then the lowlife slashed him in the face and stabbed him in the gut and rode away with it, as the worker bled out on the sidewalk trying to catch him and then died hours later from his wounds. The victim recently bought that ebike a month earlier.

Again in the Lower East Side, a manplowed a NYPD sergeant with his motorcycle when he hit a barricade she was standing behind as she ordered him to stop at a checkpoint by the Williamsburg Bridge. The perp was tripping balls and didn’t have a license.

In Greenwich Village, a man broke into cellphone store, four restaurants and a pet store and robbed cellphones, ipads and laptop computers worth totaling over $10,000 and $1,100 in cash in a 7 day crime spree.

Also in Greenwich Village, an argument between two men in front of a deli escalated when one of them pulled out a knife and chased his foe into the West 4th St. Station and then stabbed him in the gut.

Again in Greenwich Village, two men walked into a high end fash designer’s store and held up it at knifepoint while threatening to shoot workers (?!) and they made off with dozens of handbags worth over $10,000.

And again in Greenwich Village, restaurants shanties are being utilized by homeless men for sleeping and sheltering themselves.

In the Meatpacking District, a man stabbed a security guard twice inside an upscale electronic brand chain store following an argument he had with the guard after he ordered him to put on a face mask and after he punched a worker in the face.

In Hudson Yards, two men on a scooter riding on the sidewalk sneaked up behind a man and the man riding saddleback hopped off and held him up at gunpoint and snatched a gold chain from his neck, then hopped back on and got away with his accomplice.

Also in Hudson Yards at the 34th St. Station, a man snatched a celly out of another man’s hand and doused his face with pepper spray on the 7 train.

In Penn Station, two men started brawling in the spanking new Moynihan transit hub and when it spilled onto the street, they both took out knives and slashed each other in front of a pizzeria and left a crimson mess on the sidewalk.

In Hell’s Kitchen, two men got into a brawl with two traffic cops who stopped them from going into the Lincoln Tunnel.

Also in Hell’s Kitchen, a woman stabbed her boyfriend in the back inside her luxury apartment during a domestic dispute.

In Union Square, demonstrators marching in a protest against The Blaz’s fascist extortion vaccine mandate stopped by a testing site and knocked over the table and the canopy and dragged it on the sidewalk.

Also in Union Square, a man shot a man in the leg in the subway on the NRQV platform during the start of the evening rush hour after he demanded his cellphone and his victim wouldn’t comply. The NYPD transit chief actually said the victim should have gave up his property while spinning the act of gun violence occurring on a crowded heavily used subway station as a rarity and making a ludicrously false claim that the subway is safer than ever.

The perp held up another bank in Chelsea the next day but got caught and arrested by cops when he tried to take the 1 train at the 28th St. Station (but were the cops wearing masks??) and was caught with three guns in his backpack. Following his arrest, it was found that he robbed a bank at gunpoint and made off with $1,100 in Chinatown before he took the train to Union Square and stuck up a man ordering food inside a deli and robbed him of 45 bucks the day before in Midtown. The perp tried to preserve what little self-respect he had by cursing out the prosecutor and the judge during his arraignment.

In Downtown Manhattan, a man with 136 prior arrests that was about to be transferred to Rikers Island attempted suicide by trying to hang himself in a holding cell at the central booking jail in the criminal court building. He still died from his injuries.

Wonder why he would decide to snuff it?

When pressed about the continuing dystopian ultraviolence and uninhabitable environment at Rikers after photos were finally published of the deplorable conditions at the few facilities left on the island and a  new expose of women C.O.’s getting sexually assaulted by prisoners, The Blaz naturally blew them off with non sequitor talking points, deflecting his responsibility for the disintegration of order and humanity of the island prison complex, even though his idea to close it for good has turned the jails into modern day medieval dungeons; illustrating once again that he doesn’t like to be reminded of things he already knows.

Also in Downtown Manhattan, a man was found dead lying on top of a wrought iron fence like a wet blanket at a park near NYPD headquarters. The man died overdosing on smack, which follows Governor Kathy Hochul decriminalizing the possession of syringes. 

Again in Downtown Manhattan, a man was found dead on a bench by a pier at tourist attraction South Street Seaport.

In Chelsea, a man smashed the windshields and windows of cars with a long piece of wood and proceeded to walk to NoMad to cause more damage when three men who witnessed his violent vandalism followed him and cornered him in front of an office building and one of them snatched the blunt object from his hand and then cops arrived to the scene and collared him.

Also in Chelsea, a man got caught shoplifting a robot vacuum cleaner by security guards inside a home department store and then they escorted him out after he stuck a knife up at them.

Again in Chelsea, a man sneaked into the basement of a Mickey D’s and stole wallets belonging to the workers, then he used their credit cards to buy lunch and dinner at the same place he robbed.

And again in Chelsea at the 28th St. Station, a man walked up to another man and asked him a bizarre question and then cracked a bottle over his head.

And again in Chelsea, a pro soccer player and his friend sexually harassed a woman on the dance floor at a rooftop party at a fancy hotel and then they both beat down a man and cracked a bottle over his head when he tried to defend her. The horndog athlete was charged in a similar incident with another friend of his in Australia 3 years earlier.

In Kips Bay, a man shoplifted a load of electronic and pharmacy products and grub in two duffel bags from a chain dept. store and then he flashed a box cutter to security guards and easily waltzed out the door.

Also in Kips Bay, a man lifted a wallet out of an 89-year-old man’s pocket while he was shopping at a supermarket, then he used one of the credit cards to spend $1,200 on shit. The crook got busted for stealing a wallet back in August despite still being on parole and despite his recidivism and recent arrest, the judge released him on his own recognizance.

In Noho at the 8th St. Station, a man hectored two cops patrolling the platform for not wearing face masks, then one of the cops grabbed him and bounced him out through the emergency exit door.

In the Financial District, the Department of Homeless Services run by townhouse owning Windsor Terrace resident Stephen Banks sent 5 registered pedophiles to shelter at a hotel near four grade and pre-k schools.

On the Williamsburg Bridge, a man killed himself after falling off the J train while trying to surf it and onto the opposite tracks as another train ran him over.

Also on the Williamsburg Bridge, a man riding an bike stabbed another man on a skateboard in the chest after they got into an argument on the bike path, then the perp got off the bridge and rode his bike to a park and stabbed another man. The same park where a lowlife stabbed an app-food delivery man to death for his e-bike.

A man punched a woman in the face after she told him to take a chill pill on the D train.

Two couples got into some dead ass fucking on the subway and on the street next to a dollar pizza place.

Bronx

In Soundview, two men walking on the sidewalk suddenly stop and then they both pull out guns and engage in a shootout in broad daylight like they were cowboys as a woman was walking towards them with a shopping cart.

Also in Soundview, a student got pinched by safety agents in possession of a gun after he got scanned. He also had a bag of weed on him but that shit is legal now.

Again in Soundview, a man got shot in the leg twice inside an elevator at a public housing building and died from ruptured artery.

And again in Soundview, a man got killed by a hit-and-run unlicensed driver when he tried to cross the expressway on foot. His mother believes he was chased there by a criminal who mugged him while trying to get away.

In Morrisania, two gangs engaged into a shootout across the street from each other and nobody got hit, even innocent bystanders.

Also in Morrisania, cops catch a man possessing a gun on the street and then get bombed with eggs from residents in an apartment building on the same block as they were trying to put the man inside the patrol car.

Then dozens of cops break into the apartment building by prying the window off the front door trying to catch the egg chuckers but were unsuccessful.

In Hunts Point, a 13-year-old boy got shot on a basketball court in the middle of the game in broad daylight by another 13-year-old boy over a feud they got into while dissing each other on a social media platform. The young gunslinger walked away as a friend of his followed on a bike.

The suspect, known as “Chulo,” fired a shot into the knee of the teen victim who was playing basketball at the Hunts Point Playground.

The boy was involved in menacing anti-social behavior with gangs before he sought vengeance against his snapchat foe. The mother of the problematic child  turned him in to face charges of attempted murderThe mother of the victim demands why the NYPD cannot prevent guns that are easily getting into the hands of inner-city kids. 

Also in Hunts Point, an inmate attacked two C.O.’s who were trying to remove him from a housing area in the barge prison and then other inmates intervened and all of them savagely beat them down with tables and chairs. Prison violence has doubled in the last year since the city started depleting C.O personnel, leading to more attacks against C,O,’s, and more use of force against prisoners. Slashings and stabbings among inmates have also doubled.

In Mott Haven, four rowhouse apartment buildings went ablaze in a four-alarm fire and added more city residents to the homeless population.

Also in Mott Haven at the 138th St. Station, a man attempted suicide by jumping in front of the arriving 6 train but he survived.

Again in Mott Haven, an 18-year-old student refused to enter his high school because of the metal detectors and he ran away and ditched the gun he was holding inside the campus.

And again in Mott Haven, a young man got shot in the thigh after a confrontation with two other men on the street.

And again in Mott Haven, a man broke into a chain fried chicken restaurant by breaking the window with a cinderblock and crawled through the window and then slithered under the plexiglass by the cash registers and robbed a safe containing 2 large.

And again in Mott Haven, a man got shot on the sidewalk in front of an apartment building.

And again in Mott Haven, a man got stabbed to death in the vestibule of an apartment building after his killer chased him on the street and caught him trying to hide in there.

And again in Mott Haven, a juvenile holding facility has seen a rise in violence among  residents and security personnel and weapons confiscations happening on a daily basis in the past 4 months. The federal monitor also revealed non-existent record keeping by the center’s management staff. Like Rikers Island, here’s another case of systemic rot being neglected by a city agency, this time by Mayor de Blasio’s Departments of Social and Administrative Children’s Services.

In Foxhurst, two men walking past a man in a red jacket on the sidewalk both pull out guns and shoot him in broad daylight.

https://www.nydailynews.com/resizer/mAf9K_BXOledbuB5UDQvJBPaLXI=/800x455/top/cloudfront-us-east-1.images.arcpublishing.com/tronc/VVNCFNSHGZDZPDP5XASUFOSC7M.JPG

Also in Foxhurst, two construction workers wound up with broken bones and are lying in critical condition after a scaffold collapsed under them causing them to fall 20 ft to the floor inside a building.

Again in Foxhurst, a man held up three bodegas at gunpoint in seven hours but got caught by the cops at his last heist got into a shootout with them. Then the man ran away as the cops were still shooting at him but eventually got collared.

In Norwood, a man shot another man twice in the basement of an apartment building.

Also in Norwood, a gangbanger got shot twice while getting his haircut in a barber shop by two other gangbangers who took turns shooting him in retribution for his recent switch of allegiances to his current sect.

In Pelham Bay, a 17-year-old boy got shot in the back twice while he was walking on the street late in the evening.

Queens

In Brookville, a man who beat up his girlfriend on the street and threatened his mother evaded police who arrived to arrest him on a warrant for assault by crawling out the window of his mother’s house and then he climbed up and occupied a tree in front of it,  where he remained for 52 hours because he didn’t want to go back to Rikers Island. The cops coaxed the man to come down by offering the man a banana. Bet they thought that was mildly amusing.

During the nearly 3 day ordeal, the NYPD deployed hundreds of cops to force him down but then coaxed the man to come down by offering the man a banana (bet they thought that was mildly amusing). But a violence interruptor organization had more success and managed to persuade the mentally disturbed man to come down.

An area resident who just happens to be a NYPD chaplain was not only utterly taken aback at the size of the NYPD’s presence and the  excessive and ludicrous resources they had to take down one man from a tree (like using drones), but also that they didn’t have a functioning unit to deal with mentally disturbed people.

Queens Chronicle:

“I’m a neighbor,” Perry, who said police turned the neighborhood upside down for three days, told the Chronicle Monday. “There was noise, banging and floodlights … if they would have called the crisis prevention program, it would never have led up to this.”

Thomas was traumatized from his time on Rikers, according to Perry. Instead of a crisis management team, nearly 50 officers were on the scene and tried to get Thomas out of the tree by bribing him with food, using bright floodlights, flying drones and banging on some drums.

“There was noise and banging and floodlights and that was never the goal,” said Perry, who has known Thomas for six years. “The goal was to get him treatment … and that could have been resolved instead of all that manpower.”

Perry, who also happens to be an NYPD chaplain, suggested to police on Oct. 6, that they should reach out to a mental health crisis prevention team, but she said her recommendation was ignored.

“If they had called them from the beginning it would never had led up to this and now he is publicly humiliated and our neighborhood is now a target for a man that was in a tree,” said Perry. “People are still coming here to take pictures and it’s embarrassing.”

Impunity Five Alive

Gawd, has it been five years already? Time sure flies by while covering all this shit going on in New York City with all the crime and blight on the streets and recidivist wanton and feckless actions of it’s elected officials in the so-called greatest city in the world, which is still trying to recover from the ravages of Mayor de Blasio and the persistent omnipresence of COVID, despite the faint fading of the latter contagion compared to the hizzoner monster that is still plaguing this city with his moronic and donor infected policy decisions and tragicomic parody of government leadership.

Anyway, here’s to another year and maybe more as long as I can breathe or tolerate chronicling these NYC daily shitshows and all these bastards. Back to work.

Led Zeppelin’s Zoso Is Five-O

Rendering by JQ LLC on a picnic table at Shirley Chisholm Park, Spring Creek, Brooklyn, New York

50 years ago today, heavy metal pioneers Led Zeppelin and Atlantic Records released an album with no title with a gatefold jacket cover that featured portrait of a man hauling a bale of branches hanging on a wall of a dilapidated shack. Then when the needle hit the first groove of Black Dog, rock and roll and many other musical genres would fundamentally change for infinity.

Starting with of course Black Dog, as Robert Plant conjures up the mojo of every Blues artist dead and alive singing and screaming about some mama that he finds attractive as Jimmy Page conjures maniacal riffs and flashy soloing on the songs coda over John Bonzo Bonham’s behemoth proto speed metal and hand jive beats.

As Black Dog ends with a long fade out, Bonzo comes on with the biggest and loudest beats ever committed to wax since Wipe Out in the intro of Rock And Roll, as Page comes off with another bunch of solo infused riffs to go along with Bonzo’s  and Jones hard driving rhythm. Page’s actual solo on this track is batshit unreal, he’s clearly engaging in guitar wankery and musically calling out his fellow Yardbird alumni Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton, saying I’m the fucking show now. In fact, Page is also throwing major shade at fellow guitar shredder Pete Townsend who insulted his band at Zep’s first shows by saying they’ll crash like a lead zeppelin, for which Page took the piss out by using that dis.

Like the previous track, Plant’s horn dog lyrics shows a bit of depth here, not only describing the genre in nostalgic terms but also as a woman he lost and is pining for in the chorus. “It’s been a lonely lonely lonely long time”

With a title like Battle of Evermore, it’d be assumed that it would be a doom laden metal track akin to what rival metal gods Black Sabbath was releasing at the time (who came out with Paranoid a year earlier) but it shockingly turns out to be a straight up celtic folk song. Although it’s a massively heavy metal celtic folk song; Jimmy Page, who produced the album, cranks the mandolins way up to 11 on this track, showing you don’t need Marshall Stacks or gain pedals to rock hard (a creed Tenacious D would heed four decades later). Taking inspiration from the Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, Plant and Fairport Convention’s vocalist Sandy Denny trade verses over Page and John Paul Jones battling mandolins.

Evermore’s long fade out gives a moment of silence between grooves leading to the lilting immortal notes of Led Zeppelin’s magnum opus Stairway To Heaven.

The most overplayed song on classic rock station’s limited formats for 30 years now has surely been described and praised umpteenth times so now I get to do it. Plant’s impressive poetic lyricism and mysticism of this song makes it as identifiable as the repetitious gorgeous chords going along with it, even if the abstract lyrics don’t make much sense to the listener (but most songs don’t, which is what’s great about rock and roll, after jamming music at full blast you can decipher the meanings later). But Page’s equally brilliant song structuring and production keeps pulling you in, as the acoustic guitar and clean electric guitar chords gradually increase in volume, then the tempo changes on the bridge when Bonham comes barging in, getting ready for Plant to finish until Jimmy Page strikes the first majestic chords which were clearly designed to get an army of knights to charge in a rally and a stadium of people on their feet. Page then proceeds to play three minutes of the most soulful guitar shredding of his musical career.

Wisely keeping their greatest song at the time on Side 1 of the record, keeping listeners wanting more, Side 2 begins with Misty Mountain Hop, a romping stomping simple rock song with Plant goofing on hippies and engaging in vagrancy while referencing Tolkien again. Paul Jones organ riff gets more emphasis here that Page follows along to, but Bonzo gives this silly song super aggression with his gargantuan snare and bass drum hits.

Then Zep gets evil on the menacing metalbilly beat driven and heaviest song on the album Four Sticks. It’s also the album’s most minimal and simplest song too, Plant is basically singing about breaking up with a woman or getting away from a groupie and it’s the only track where Page doesn’t do a solo. Mostly it’s a showcase for Bonzo’s inventive and distinguished drum techniques, because the  title is named after the four sticks he used to play this song.

Like with Rock And Roll, the band follows up with another folk music track, the stunning Going To California, Plant’s lyrical homage to the golden state brilliant singer songwriter Joni Mitchell, beautifully accompanied by the acoustic guitar strumming of Page and Jones.

As Page lets Going go out with a long fade featuring Plant haunting moans sounding like shadows in the distance, the silence on the groove gets disrupted by Bonzo’s massive foot stomping snare cracking pounding on When The Levee Breaks, complimented by Page’s devil conjuring slide guitar riffing and Plant’s caterwauling harmonica playing which doesn’t stop until the end of the song, truly rock and roll’s and metal’s first headbanger anthem.

Lifting the lyrics from a 40 year old song (at the time) by seminal blues singer Memphis Millie about a flood in a Kansas City town caused by a dam that broke and destroyed everything in its path. This metal classic is the perfect polarizing bookend to the Stairway opus on side 1. The most apt description of this song I can think of for this monster jam was written by Creem rock scribe Chuck Eddy who called When the Levee Breaks “the Stairway to Hell”.

Led Zeppelin’s fourth album, terminologically known as IV or Zoso, would influence generations of artists and bands expanding genres of all kinds, from every subgenre of heavy metal to hip hop. Like rock and roll benchmarks Sgt. Peppers and Are You Experienced? and Paranoid, its not just a classic rock or metal album, it’s also a living musical document that continues to transcend time and space and it still blows away everything to this day (which isn’t that hard). So go get your record,tape, CD or your fucking file and blast it this week, especially when the drums and solos come on.

I bet its been a long time, been a long time since you all did that.

Barely Around Brooklyn Resident Wins Hardly There Voter Turnout Election To Become New York City Mayor

Image

Eric Adams, Confidence Mayor

Brooklyn, New York

Election day finally came to unseat the pile of shit current mayor and bag of dead dicks and human shit Bill de Blasio and his long awaited removal from City Hall, and the chosen one by New York’s registered voters was Eric Adams, New York City Cop, State Senator and current president of the borough of Brooklyn who beat street tough vigilante and civic obsessed shock jock Curtis Sliwa, trouncing him by over 40 percentage points of the votes.

Actually in this case here, accuracy is required, he won with 39 percentage points over the bereted one and with the horrendous low voter turnout, Adams can hardly be deified as chosen, even though he basically called himself that by preemptively repeatedly decreeing himself as NYC’s mayor immediately after he won by the skin of his teeth in the Democrat primary in June, beating de Blasio’s commissioner Kathryn Garcia by a cunt’s hair in the stupid ranked choice voting tallies and overcoming the early challenge of the now forgotten startup millionaire tech bro Andrew Yang. He even defiantly exhorted he was the Mayor right in front of The Blaz’s big dumb goon face at a rally with local city official elites back in July. Adams was also buoyed for 5 months being reported as the predetermined Mayor-elect by a recalcitrant news media that constantly described him in stories and headlines as the “likely” and “certain to be” mayor in a “democrat majority city”

But Adams triumph is dubious to say the most despite his landslide win. He won with only a little over 800,000 votes registered in the primary and with a little less than 1,000,000 votes registered for his early win on Tuesday, 969,600 to be precise. So Adams does not have much of a mandate or even one at all (considering how Sliwa trounced him in Staten Island). Adams actually won the mayor’s position with less the amount of votes that the Blaz got, even in his re-election in 2017 when he just got unindicted for pay to play crimes he committed in City Hall. Both times the Blaz won with only about 11% of city voters who bothered to show up, Adams apparently only won with about 9% this time around. Have to say that just like with de Blasio, the 4 million who stayed away again on Election Day did more to help Adams than hurt him.

But mostly it’s all that consent manufactured by the news media apparatus that played a factor, since de Blasio’s toxic endorsement didn’t ruin Adams campaign nor did the new Mayor’s Westworld performance at the debates where Sliwa ate his lunch mattered much either. Even an expose’ about Adams shady residential tax filings for his townhouse in Bed-Stuy-which were made by an accountant who wound up homeless after getting indicted for embezzling funds from an apartment building he was running in Harlem-didn’t revive voter apathy or lead to much coverage from the press that already wrote subtleties about his preemptive win of the election.

A super majority of people didn’t want to bother because they were told Adams victory was already solidified (a good way to normalized vote tampering) or they were already determined to fill the oval for him, which was the case of the primary as he swept up the  still dominant middle class voters of the forgotten enclaves of the outer limits of Queens, Bronx and Brooklyn and over the river in Staten Island.

But there is an overarching theme here for the massive absence of the constituency of the five boroughs and that’s the hilarious not-so urban legend of Eric Adams residency of the town he’s going to helm on New Years Day. Heading up to the final days of the primary late Spring, rumors started to get validated about Adams own massive absence from his residence in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn. Which got so heated that he actually invited the press to come see it themselves for confirmation in what was the weirdest episode of MTV’s Cribs that never aired (Adams actually made a case for the show’s revival) and also a hilarious video Curtis Sliwa produced of him going to New Jersey to the co-op Adams co-owns with his lady friend.

Adams Bed-Stuy “residence” became even a bigger curiosity when a reporter from City Limits stopped by and found the basement door loaded with mail and violation notices from the Department of Buildings. Which can wholly explain why Adams decided to crash at in his office in Borough Hall in Downtown Brooklyn for the past year and a half. Despite his claims that he wanted to be available during the pandemic, it’s clear that he was squatting there all the time to evade visits by the Department of Buildings and probably his desperately troubled accountant.

As jokes about Adams alleged presence in the borough he runs continued to thrive on social media, yours truly even moseyed by there to see if the Chosen Mayor would materialize.

No luck and no Adams. Although there was a yellow sheet affixed to the mail box to his basement entrance where he, um, lives. It sort of looked like a citation, but since there was an occupied vehicle idling in front of the house and I’m not a real reporter with credentials, I couldn’t really walk in and take a gander at it.

But a few real reporters with credentials from Curbed decided to play detective in the staked out his house for a week before the election. Apparently using his cop instincts, they caught Adams parking his car twice in the wee hours of the morning, first a block away in front of an auto shop where he blocked the driveway and another night on the sidewalk. Considering his eccentric behavior since winning the primary which included an overseas trip that he wouldn’t divulge to reporters of it’s location (it was Monoco. Why Monoco?), it seems showing up to his abode in the dark of night and minutes before sunrise should be considered normal for him. Even though it would be normal for say, Blacula.

But in the week of Election Day and after his official legitimate election win, the mayor elect has become man of the people and extremely accessible. Naturally to all the power brokers in the political Brooklyn Machine and the oligarch ruling class he mingled and networked with at a gala celebration party for him and even on the streets of New York where he got embraced with adulation by his elected Democrat allies and the citizenry who hired him to lead the city out of it’s current struggle to recovery.

Oh wait. How can anyone forget,  there’s The Blaz’s fascist vaccine extortion mandate for all municipal workers that Mayor-elect Adams is going to inherit two months from now but like his certain victory got the mandate preemptively as well as hundreds of suspended city workers ambushed him coming out of Borough Hall and literally put Adams into a corner with demands to be re-enfranchised of their jobs.

Usually with mobs and aggression like this against an elected official, being the current Brooklyn BP and also a cop, it would be immediately followed with NYPD overdeployment and over aggression to ward off the crowd (like kettling) and mass arrests, but Eric Adams willfully stood with them and requested to have a quorum with the organizers of the contentious public assembly inside his conference room to discuss the mandate. Showing that in just a few hours with the public, Adams accomplished a connection with his constituents than what The Blaz did in his 7 years  and 10 months of his abominable existence in city hall.

This actually gives the optics of hope in a truly hands on street ready mayor of the people and an actual face of the democrat party (Adams words) that the people can see and feel (at least for now). Pretty good but also antithetical for a guy who has been vague and evasive for over a year now. It’s going to be interesting to see if this display of accountability will continue, or its just more but better optics.

Be seeing you Mr. Mayor…

HEY ERIC!!!!

The Gentrification Of A Beach: Rockaway’s Long Belated And Selective Resiliency Concern

Rockaway Beach, Queens, New York

Climate change was somewhat kind to New York City this year compared to the devastation that continues to happen in other states and nations with tropical storms, hurricanes and tornadoes and the apocalyptic hell fires that are happening frequently in California;  although with the exception of the remnants of Hurricanes Henri and Ida causing record amounts of water vomiting from the sky which led to destruction and sad deaths of the city’s lower income citizens here. Mostly because of the record heat NYC has received this year, with the hottest July on record, this mild weather has also led to what will sure to be the warmest October in this city in 2021, which comes to mind the last time summer stuck around for another month in 2012 when the pleasant weather gave way to the kraken that was Hurricane Sandy a few days before Halloween.

Sandy laid destruction and death of her own in a 24 hours across the coastal towns and areas and updated flood zones of the five boroughs, notably in Rockaway Beach where she  destroyed the entire boardwalk 9 years ago. But with funding from FEMA,  it took a few years to build another boardwalk, this time with rebar and concrete to replace all the wood that was reduced to kindle and also billions of pounds of sand for dunes. This led to longer treks to find some real estate to lay your towels and coolers down on the beach, but at least it provided protection from the hostile waters of the Atlantic that has been rising and eroding the shores of the peninsula for years before that bitch Sandy arrived.

 

And nigh a decade later, Rockaway Beach’s shore is in dire straits again. Most evident on the most conveniently accessed and popular beach area at Beach 98 st., the boardwalk entrance ramp to the sand is more fit for kayaking than a path for sunbathing.

Most of this lies in the fact that jetties and groins were never laid down on a majority of the coast line. This was evident by the rockpiles near the end of the boardwalk in Far Rockaway.

Most of the dunes are now thoroughly devoured from erosion, making the boardwalk resemble more like a pier and the remaining walls of sand resemble more like a ravine cliff when standing from the boardwalk. Which people have taken advantage of giving them balcony-esque views of the shore below.

 

 

 

9 years of rising sea levels and tropical storms has usurped most of the real estate on Rockaway’s shores, It’s almost inconceivable that there was actually a point where this chair stands now when the city parks department actually permitted a concession stand on Beach 97th st. to hold musical performances on the sand. But there really was.

But nature and the extreme effects of climate change was too overwhelming for the optical resiliency efforts by the parks dept and the Army Corps of Engineers, which has led to sights like this, none more pronounced than this life guards high chair removed from the sands and onto the boardwalk because there is nowhere to put it where it belongs since the tides are so close to the boardwalks steps.

In the last couple of years and despite repeated attempts adding more sand to the dilapidated shore, the most populated beaches from Beach 87th St. to Beach 104th St. have been officially closed to the public. But warnings were only seen as obligatory as the public made do and adjusted to what little space they had to soak some rays and have fun fun fun on Rock Rock Rockaway Beach in defiance of all the orange flag warnings.

 

 

 

What once was a marvel of land replenishment and infrastructure, Rockaway’s beach and boardwalk has been fed it’s lunch by the primal forces of nature and man-made climate change. Further east on B. 42nd St. in Edgemere, even the groins weren’t able to keep years of rising tides from coming in. 

 

But for some miraculous reason, not all of Rockaway’s beaches have not been subjected to the same climate violence water torture that has devastated the beaches in the former Playland and Rockaway Park areas and this beach in Edgemere. In what could be considered the 8th (or is 9th) wonder of the world, the sand on the beaches from B 57th to 69th St. in Arverne, make that Arverne by the sea has somehow maintained it’s own version of resiliency ever since the boardwalk got restored 6 years ago and was still able to stay sandy as other the aforementioned beaches disintegrated.

May 2020

But upon closer inspection, by turning your head around, is about a couple of acres of luxurious beach house development and apparent (also alleged) available luxury real estate lots. Well, mostly advertising for the luxury real estate that already exists.

  

This was a sight I found intriguing. It seems there’s a surfing culture that “The Tides NYC” is integrating with the high end lifestyle living that they are selling in this enclave, which sticks out like a gold leaf and glittered thumb on the peninsula from the neighboring NYCHA buildings and vacant weeded, wild brushed and sandy lots. It’s quite obvious that to compete with man made climate change that has gradually slaughtered the beaches, our intrepid city planners and elected officials had to ensure this man made upper class Potemkin Village get prioritized for resiliency at all costs and at the expense of the rest of the peninsula.

 

And if all the luxurious beach houses and condos wasn’t enough uncorroborated evidence of the prioritization of this resiliency concern for Rockaway, it’s also the presence of this Hollywood styled sign spanning 2 blocks of Beach Channel Drive and a certain one floor government agency building on the corner nestled right by the B 67th St. Arvene transit station staircase.

 

 

At least the infamous Congressman is easily accessible, so it seems. This building sort of looks new, as if it was built the same time as the Rockaway’s boardwalk/sidewalk was constructed. Interesting that mutli-termed reigning rep of the nation’s 26th district didn’t have this building on stilts considering that it’s in a code red flood zone. But apparently he needed an oasis by the sea to satiate his high end big spending lifestyle fix.

But this isn’t actually the only area that still able to beat the aggressive waters of the Atlantic, there’s still plenty of sandy real estate for the public to enjoy all the way at the end of the boardwalk in Far Rockaway, which is logical because that’s the resiliency effort to replenish the beaches began. But it’s hard not to notice the changes that followed along with the beach’s recovery right when you come to the end of the boardwalk. Right behind the rent stabilized apartment buildings and right across from what looks like a senior housing building long abandoned is the most expensive luxury public housing towers perched over the edge of the water a stones throw from the border of Long Island. There are also startlingly attractive townhouses right across the street from the three pronged behemoths.

 

 

So it’s easy to see how man is able to compete with nature when the money and the zoning permits go right. But it doesn’t only hinge on which beaches miraculously recover from land erosion (at least temporarily), also noticeable is how the mostly low residential neighborhoods sprout luxury public housing mini-metropolises by subway stations. Starting with the massive luxury public housing development village by the Mott Ave. Station and other new luxury public housing towers by the 44th and 55th St. Stations.

 

 

 

But now it finally looks like shore resiliency equity has finally come to the heart of Rockaway Beach as more tons of sand and boulders finally came west to the middle of the peninsula’s shore right at autumn’s arrival, along with cranes situated at B 101th and B 108th streets at the ready to finally lay the groins down and restore the beaches to at least a semblance of how it look when it was restored a decade ago. (Although the shore from B 90 to B98 will still go wanting).

 

 

It’s a wonder why this was delayed so long, especially after persistent complaints by the residents for years. What happened to the funding by the city and federal parks departments? This is expected with Current Mayor Bill de Blasio’s tardiness and misplaced profligate spending on other projects dear to him and his avocado sect base (which ironically happens to flock to this beach in masses) but Donald Trump leave the maintenance of Rockaway’s shores hanging in the lurch? While seeing these machines here standing gloriously on the sand about to finally restore the coast’s infrastructure, it’s sort of too little too late. And from the way these cranes are standing unoccupied and immobile and hardly enough natural materials to work with, it doesn’t look like this won’t be make much progress during the cold weather months and wont be done when the next summer comes around. But I bet it still wont stop the public from coming to bask in the rays of the sun and mists of the tides

But more essentially for the belated resiliency concern of Rockaway Beach that has finally resumed in this area is all the new luxury development that has arrived in the form of a spanking high end up scale modern hotel on 108th St., and also shore front row house style condo buildings recently built and incoming luxury residential development along with a cultural foodie scene that is getting even more pricier.

 

 

This little shit sandwich was 10 bucks

As for the manufactured jewel of Rockaway, Averne by the Sea?  As with the recent shore restoration equity bestowed upon the Hammels and Playland towns, Arverne’s shore got even more tons of sand for the upper class fauxhemian and still water surfer locals.

    

To go along with the extension of coast, Arverne got even bigger with the completion of the Tides “locals” luxury suite residential building as predominantly advertised. And a beautiful new YMCA to go along with it.

 

Its going to be interesting how all this city planning and hyper-development is going to coalesce with the hastening warming of this planet and the future maladies and catastrophes from climate change that are yet and inevitable to come, since more effort was spent trying to recreate Rockaway as a luxury island or resort city retreat for frivolous spending and tax shelter investments than to keep the land afloat and it’s long time and future residents and their homes safe from harm from the encroaching, menacing tides.

Because apparently in the minds of these developers and also elected officials and city planners, the only thing that can stop the extreme effects and coastal destruction wrought by climate change is the omniscient predominance of upscale lifestyle living and real estate market speculation/fabrication

Obviously Known: The Jenga Luxury Tower Has A Disability

Jenga Tower, February 2017

Tribeca, Manhattan, New York

To people who have visited this digital publication, it’s plainly obvious how much I focus on the conditions on the street level, whether they were decrepit or ludicrous. So maybe it’s time to focus on what makes this city a visual wonder from a more personal perspective, like NYC’s epic building skyline.

One of them is the tower marvel commonly known by people who care as the Jenga Tower in tiny high-end enclave Tribeca. Completed in 2017, the luxury residential building is quite an aesthetically freaky sight and is truly distinctive and fascinating than the hundreds of steel and glass monoliths that have sprouted in the last four years in Manhattan, notably the atmosphere violating buildings on billionaire’s row on 57th St in Midtown and the silver beanstalks and upper class warehouses that line up the east river in Long Island City, Williamsburg, Dumbo and Downtown Brooklyn.

What makes the 56 Leonard St. tower truly unique might also be it’s biggest and oddest liability, and it’s the conspicuous gap at the base of the building between by the lobby and freight entrance on Church St. This anomaly was exposed in a posting by upscale developer propaganda blog YIMBY when they sent one of their intrepid reporters to scope out the penthouses at the luxury tower in one of their photos where the only bone that was propping up the 36 story building was single column next to the lobby and another column right next to the commercial space.

Ground floor, Jenga Tower. May 2018 ( cropped/Fair Use)

While marveling at their creation while it was in development, surely the developers and designers sensed they their inspiration for their building is a game where the object is to stack sticks higher and higher on a precarious base, which usually concludes with gravity being the ultimate victor, so in addition to their rendering, they thought about putting a gargantuan bean to fill that massive disturbing gap underneath the second floor mezzanine.

https://newyorkyimby.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Lobby-View-rendering-by-Anish-Kapoor-1024x522.jpg

In the same 3-year-old YIMBY post, many photos from visits to balconies in other condos displayed alarming cracks, which makes it a wonder what the outer masonry looked like on the ceiling of that gap in the building. But surely the bean would be able to fix that by obscuring any disturbing visible blights while optically acting as a sturdy doorstop propping up the building. But the $56,000 question is why didn’t the developers decided to put the big bean under there first before stacking their assymetrical stories 400 feet high?

While that is just a question of the tower developer’s and owner’s judgement (and bizarre lack of it) the bigger mystery is the bean itself, which was announced it was going to arrive and be installed on Halloween 2019. Passing by the stylish haphazard monolith a year later after that announcement, I found the bean still covered in what looked like the wood panels that were pried from the crate it arrived in. (Not sure if Moishe’s delivered it).

Jenga Tower, October 2020

Thinking why it’s been taking exactly a year to put this up, the perfect storm of COVID-19 came to mind, although the 6 Sq. Ft. report did say it would be installed in the spring and summer. But it looks like they started assembling it right at the fall equinox. And half the bean is still missing. Maybe it was still in Moishes truck.

Coming back one year later in 2021, the pandemic is still with us despite the power of the vaccinations. The streets are still quite deserted and lo and behold, the bean is whole but it’s still not completed after two years.

Jenga Tower and bean, October 2021

Jenga Tower And Bean, October 2021

 

 

 

Looks like this bean would be an ideal place the store the tower’s “residents” tax haven condos laundered money.

While it’s still covered to protect it from the elements and smudging from curious passerby, it’s blatantly noticeable to any observant eye that this mighty bean is more for load bearing than for aesthetics, as the once former vacant space is now covered and snug tightly in the tower base like a giant doorstop.

    

Don’t know what’s above this ground level ceiling, because it sure looks like there’s something wrong with the masonry. Maybe it’s the stress from 30+ stories of reinforced steel, glass and cement that is causing these visible cracks which were apparently sanded and caulked over.

I don’t need to be a building expert or to be obsessed with Ayn Rand’s Fountainhead to know this looks very bad…

The tower is also having tremendous difficulty trying to get this store filled too. The rent they are asking for this commercial space must be comically astronomical. It’ll be overvalued even more with that artwashing goober mirror spooning it. 

What started out as an innovative skyscaper has turned into another pathetic addition to the hyper-development of tower pestilence in Manhattan to go along with all the other behemoths that have metastasized the landscape and skyline from Downtown Manhattan to the East And West Villages to Midtown South to Billionaire’s Row and to even Harlem. It’s only a matter of time when the luxurious condos and balconies hovering on the higher and highest floors start to show stress. It’s going to be interesting to see what kind of art they’ll use up there. Maybe Alexico and NKF can ask Anish to design some giant pretzel rods or twizzlers to keep those pieces steady.

Heads up cuz.

Queens

On Rikers Island, an inmate was found dead from a drug overdose inside his cell, making him the 10th prisoner to perish inside one of the few facilities left after a law the city council cronies enacted and the current mayor signed decreed that the island be shut down permanently.

Also on Rikers Island, a clerical fugazi allowed a convicted burglar who was sentenced for 20 months for robbing three small businesses to run free and was found and re-detained back on his hunting grounds in Staten Island.

Again on Rikers Island, an inmate stole a corrections bus and crashed it into a prison wall after the C.O. driver left the keys in the ignition while he was processing paperwork with another C.O.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate who was gang affiliated and convicted of murder was found dead in his cell following a transfer from the prison barge docked in the Bronx.

And again on Rikers Island, three inmates brutally beat down another inmate inside his cell because they thought he was in a rival gang.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate saw a shitlib city council crony and threw toilet water at him from behind a glass partition.

And again in Rikers Island, three inmates ganged up on a maintenance worker and stole his watch, sneakers and smokes as one of them stuck a shiv to his side.

And again on Rikers Island, an inmate who was serving time for shooting up a speakeasy nite club in Williamsburg where he sprayed five people at their legs was found to be the hit-and run driver who ran over and killed a woman with a fancy car in Ozone Park by a catholic school and got charged with murder. So let’s decarcerate him.

And again on Rikers Island, a C.O. caught an inmate with a weapon on him while he was doing a work detail and then the convict punched him the face and broke his jaw while he tried to bring him back to a higher security level area. The inmate was arraigned for the homicide of his girlfriend.

Since the city closed facilities on the prison complex island, two of them that had medical clinics, to rush it’s eventual transfer to four tower prisons in four boroughs sans S.I. that won’t fully materialize until 2027, a fifth of the C.O.’s have been calling in sick and the remaining guards have been working triple shifts trying to prevent daily insurrections and attacks by unruly inmates. Under staffing has been so rife, inmates have taken over their duties logging prisoners on days when they go 24 hours without C.O. supervision. 

What was always a common occurrence inside the prisons, gang beatdowns are even more pronounced as inmates film the ultraviolence and post them on social media sites like TikTok and also rap videos with inmates flashing cash and high end hooch. The drug trade has also raged out of control because there are not enough C.O.’s to search them.

While the Blaz deliberately stalled into visiting Rikers for weeks after being hammered with questions daily about it and by slightly acknowledging the crisis he’s been ignoring for mostly the last 4 years.., NY State senators and assembly officials were demanding to visit the prison and see the humanitarian crisis for themselves. But as is wont of the Blaz, he fabricated a hill of bullshit by citing his executive authority can only allow them to visit the prisons or any government building. But since New York government officials have the privileged right to enter any government building they want, Blaz’s dropped his pathetic obstruction and the senators and assembly people went the next day.

And what a day it was. As they all assembled at a podium in front of Rikers giant welcoming sign on the corner of Hazen St. and 19th Ave, young women elected officials one by one furiously railed about the horrid and hazardous conditions and environment during their tour of the wretched facilities. One of them even claimed she saw an inmate attempted suicide by hanging himself in his cell (although no one happened to see any impromptu gang violence or regular drug dealing when they were inside there).

Although they acknowledged the maltreatment the C.O.’s and workers at Rikers are getting from the city (but not from the recidivist violent inmates), the Corrections Dept. union leader held a rally right near them and confronted the liberal collective right after they were calling for the general release of the entire prison population. Yet the two groups found solidarity in their abject and apt criticism of current mayor de Blasio, who cowardly tried to prevent this tour from happening. Rikers workers continued to hold protests against the mayor and the crony he hired as interim Dept of Corrections commissioner to oversee the prison complex as it got worse under his feeble supervision during it’s draw down transition to tower prisons that are a half decade away, who a high brass C.O. labeled as an asshole puppet of the Blaz. The asshole puppet lived up to his reputation by proclaiming that fixing Rikers is impossible because the recurring violence behind bars is unstoppable mainly because of absent C.O.’s although depriving the prisoners of basis services. Besides losing medical services because of the loss of clinics from two recently closed facilities, inmates no longer have recreational activities or even access to the library.

As the pressure mounted following the Rikers protest, The Blaz continued to avoid Rikers and evade questions about touring the prison complex even though he was holding his recent silly city hall in your borough week in Queens, where Rikers happens to call it’s home. Following a presser teasing when he will visit, he finally went to Rikers immediately after his daily variety show press briefing that very day and evidently he made sure he avoided all the corridors where thousands of inmates were located and even avoided the C.O.’s on the floor who do the risky and bold work trying to keep the jail secure for visitors like the soft elitist mayor of NYC, while they weren’t even getting paid for the triple shifts they were induced to take. All the dilapidated conditions and human excrement were suddenly scoured clean and painted over and his crony asshole puppet commissioner had all the inmates shuttled to another intake facility that resembled a medieval goolag with the maggots and their own shit just to placate the realities of the prison the mayor only chooses to see, despite the known risk of causing a superspreader area because of the congregate setting. Another thing that made the Blaz’s Rikers tour a cakewalk was that he recently deployed 100 cops to fill work as C.O.’s to the island a few days earlier. If not for the anarchy that has overtaken the jails, this would be another misuse of city safety services the Blaz selfishly exploited with his undeserved privilege as NYC’s Mayor.

When confronted with a question about his pussy tour of Rikers and his deliberate avoidance of engaging with C.O.’s and prisoners who have to work and live under the decrepit conditions resulting from his complicit insouciance that purposely led to them, the Blaz feebly responded with the most heinous missive that he’s ever defecated out of his big faceanus:

“I don’t need to be reminded of something I already know” 

Not only is this cold blooded and tone deaf statement a confirmation of his wanton arrogant avoiding of C.O.s and inmates, it’s also monstrously inhumane, being that he knows and has practically accepted what a shithole the prisons are and how the internationally renowned humanitarian crisis exacerbated under his indifference and there was a point when he decided he was going to let it rot. Surely right when he got re-elected. It’s also the Blaz’s most hilarious self-own, since that stupidly haughty statement can apply to every other issue and crisis that has turned into a bigger mountain of shit under his watch, like Vision Zero, affordable housing, and the city’s sewer system that crapped out and flooded the streets and highways of Queens, Kings and Boogie Down counties. Plus anyone can apply it to the mayor himself in casual conversation.

“Man, de Blasio is such a fucktard dickhead”

“I don’t need to be reminded of what I already know cuz”

Now that the Blaz has finally made no bones for being unaccountable for Rikers Island, it’s inmates and security because of he already knows how fucked up it is there, he continues to blame the court system for making it harder to get violent criminals off the streets that have led to rise in felonies in his city, accusing them of being too slow to process cases while discounting the city’s court buildings under his purview that are still under shoddy conditions and not safe to distance from COVID-19/Delta Variant spread. But this wouldn’t be a problem if the borough district D.A.’s weren’t dismissing thousands of criminal cases because of the 10 month old bail reform laws that has sprung over 6,500 perpetrators because of the state assembly’s re-categorizations of the severity of the crimes committed. (Or is that re-imagining). And thousands more will be released because of the humanitarian crisis the Blaz, Governor Kathy, the city council cronies, and the state and assembly fauxgressives are complicit with for their ill-written bail reform and their asinine advocacy legislation for Rikers closure, acting as useful idiots for rapacious developers chomping at the bit for all that vast real estate on the ground and in the ether. All for collective regressive effort to close Rikers Island by any means necessary is clearly having an impact on the streets and on the minds of recidivist criminals and gangbangers practically rejoicing at the decarceration culture being induced on the public from fauxgressive politicians and social media pundits as teenagers are getting shot and killed on the streets where these elites fear to tread.

While he’s telling people off for reminding him of what he already knows, he then tries to remind everyone about dubious drops in shootings from the last year in certain NYPD enclaves while blowing off how shootings have doubled and tripled in other enclaves. As the Summer of Blaz and September ended, a total of 1,384 people got shot on the streets, already passing last years total with another 3 months left in this blood stained year. And if this isn’t offensive and repulsive enough, Jizzoner’s response to all this violence and crime he has been blocking from his brain for the last two years is to hire more municipal workers to NYPD precincts to greet victims of crimes looking to file reports or citizens looking to visit friends and relatives on lockdown because of the perception of the crabby cop behind the desk who won’t help them. The twisted irony of this idiotic program is it’s coming from a motherfucker who’s been the shittiest and surliest host of NYC for 8 years; who doesn’t even deign to greet C.O.’s and prisoners after being browbeaten to by his establishment fauxgressive Democrat party peers. So instead of telling precinct desk cops to be more cordial and informative to his constituents, he spends 5.7 million dollars to put a bunch of B to do their jobs for them.

This abomination reign of de Blasio can’t decompose soon enough.

False War Starter And Fully Vaccinated Military Politician Colin Powell Dies From COVID-19

https://static.timesofisrael.com/www/uploads/2021/10/000_9PW76E-e1634562108138-640x400.jpg

Colin Powell died this morning at the age of 84 from COVID-19. He was fully vaccinated with the Pfizer vaccine(sans booster). Colin Powell had a comorbidity of multiple myeloma, a blood cancer that made the Pfizer vaccines virtually useless, given the multiple confirmed reports of the products rapidly declining efficacy in barely 6 months after inoculation.

I should mention that I’m not a doctor and I got the gist of my opinion from actual corporate news media which was brilliantly compiled in a video released on social media featuring the man behind the curtain of syringes and vaccine bottles, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who’s personal goal and prime directive is for the pandemic to keep going until his last vile breath.

There will be thousands of eulogies written by the corporate news and social media complexes about the decorated General and Secretary Of State who had two roles in invading the sovereign nation of Iraq, but his horrid testimony to the United Nations to justify Operation Iraqi Liberation (oops Freedom, make sure the intent sounds good) which led to the deaths of millions of citizens of that nation, the thousands of deaths of U.S. Soldiers and profligate waste of trillions of dollars will always be the memory that sticks out like a one hit wonder number one song.

And in light of the U.S. Government’s lunatic fight to defend the sainted vaccines from medical professional criticism and mandate resisters because of their allegations of preventing “misinformation about them after almost a year of embellishing their effectiveness, it makes Powell’s own role in gaslighting a nation even more brutally ironic.

This pandemic has enabled Pfizer and also Moderna and Johnson & Johnson to too big to fail status, abutted by their militia of lobbyists and their ownership of corporate news networks and obeisant feckless elected officials in the U.S. Capitol and a recidivist greedy liar in the White House.

But given the passing of this establishment political icon from COVID-19 which already is shaking up the elites who keep telling us how awesome the vaccines are and how the Biden Administration and Mayor de Blasio are weaponizing them to coerce and extort people into getting them or they will lose their jobs and can’t engage in society in their cities, it looks like the only way the defective #COVID19 vaccines are going to be acknowledged as such and to get the mainstream attention it deserves is when an A-list celebrity or athlete dies of COVID after being double or dies from the faulty vax by itself. Just like Rock Hudson with AIDS.

Or even if one survives after contracting COVID-19 from being fully vaccinated and the outcry because of the immensity of that entertainer is too overwhelming to the predominant marketing and narrative of vaccinations, like a Beyonce or more fearsome if a rogue figure like Kanye West gets infected.

Even Big Pharma’s public relations minions will try to undermine the significance of Colin Powell’s passing from his moot vaccinations with their useful idiot accomplices in DC and mass media, the cause celebre patient zero case is already established and the protests against mandates on the city streets that are being maligned will get even bigger when more breakthrough cases begin to reach the millions as the weather gets colder, leading to congressional hearings against the vaccine monolith merchants and exposes of the bought vaccine minstrels in government.

Then what the fuck are they gonna do.

 

Mayor de Blasio’s NYPD Rideshare And Blackguard

Mr. Mayor heading for his EPU ride

City Hall, Downtown Manhattan, New York

Current mayor Bill de Blasio has found himself in quite a hot mess of his own making with his brazen misuse of his NYPD executive protection unit. Ironically the only transparency he’s ever shown while governing this city since there were exposes of the Blaz treating the NYPD EPU has his personal chauffeurs and valets under the rubric of security provision of an elected officials notably using the cops to escort his son Dante to Yale U. on various occasions and helping move his daughter Chiara out of her apartment in Sunset Park at Brooklyn, which he hilariously gaffed during his daily presser claiming he had no knowledge about the move despite that she was being ordered back home to Gracie Mansion where he and his wife have been dwelling for the last 7 years and 9 months when he fielded a fusillade of questions about his latest scandal. This is what happens when you continue to try to gaslight when you run out of gas.

Another noteworthy thing about his Department Of Investigation report on his profligacy abuse with his NYPD detail and city resources is when he used them to accompany him on his farcical presidential campaign trail for 5 months in the spring and summer of 2019 which cost taxpayers a whopping $320,000. This corn dog he bought in Iowa in the first primary election probably cost $40,000 alone.

The Blaz treated this expose’ with self-aggrandizing self-justification during his taxpayer funded city presser by ludicrously proclaiming that his malfeasance was perfectly legal because as mayor he is a high profile target for terrorists. And by deploying his NYPD chief of “intelligence and counter-terrorism” John Miller to defend him for the entire line of questioning during his “media availability”, showing his constituents and journalists once again his whimsical use of city tax dollars and resources by using a cop again to act as his personal lawyer.

Miller repetitively pointed out how The Blaz in his position as mayor

along with his immediate family justifies the need for 24/7 protection no matter where they go because of his status as an elected official and also his immediate family requires it because of threats or even the prospect of threats by terrorists international or domestic, whether confirmed or not. But for the two years cited in the DOI’s report, the Blaz exploited this distinction by treating his NYPD EPU as his own personal Uber by having them ferry his minion staffers around town and to their residences, also denigrating these cops by having them to errands for them. The Blaz also deployed his EPU as valets and chauffeurs for his political allies and “guests” (agents of the city?) to shuttle them around town even while he wasn’t present with them, basically designating them all as extended family worthy of protection from dangers real or prefabricated.

But the main story in this way overdue scandal is actually not the Blaz, because this malfeasance is expected of him, but the man assigned to protect him, his relatives and his extended family of minions and guests of the city, and that’s Inspector Howard Redmond, chief of the mayor’s EPU unit for his entire mayoralty.

Inspector Redmond: “What’s it to ya punk”

 

According to the DOI report, when he was ordered to testify on the mayor’s behalf to about NYPD EPU services, he displayed hostile obtuseness and insouciance about the mayor’s wanton misuse of the unit which was used mostly for the convenience of his son Dante (who the Blaz is clearly grooming to his political heir) and even Redmond used them for himself, which he deployed the EPU cops to pick up a woman he picked up at a bar.

Redmond also dutifully covered the Blaz’s ass regarding this abuse of services and authority by refusing to give DOI his city government issue cellphones and when he did, he made sure to wipe out all correspondence data on them after he turned them in and in many instances had them “destroyed”. The last phone he willingly relinquished was a new cellphone he only had for a little over a month which was also thoroughly wiped cleaned.

When confronted about this blatant act of unaccountabilty by his NYPD EPU leader and apparent closest confidant, the Blaz had nothing but effusive praise for Inspector Redmond and continued his obtuse insouciance about his deliberate act of wrong doing protecting the current mayor’s craven exploitation of city cops for his selfish wants and needs and for his entitled family, municipal sycophants and unnamed political cronies and allies.

Even though this is another case of The Blaz being a monstrous sociopath, his statement belies a lot a truth to it, because Redmond sure is fucking devoted. Redmond exhibited extreme devotion to hizzoner after a cop in one of the vehicles in his NYPD EPU motorcade decided to drive in the wrong direction and wound up crashing into a boiler truck because Mayor Big Slow was late for a scheduled event on his itinerary (or the cop was most likely ordered to). Being that this happened around the time the Blaz initiated the city’s Vision Zero program and surely sensing blowback criticism of the rank hypocrisy of the Mayor violating his own traffic calming and enforcement policy, Redmond made sure the DMV’s report of the accident was instantly abolished from the city’s records. As is wont of the Blaz, he also abolished the incident from his delusion addled brain despite being in the EPU unit vehicle at the time of the wreck.

Before this memory holing of NYPD EPU’s reckless incompetence,one of the mayor’s vehicles transporting Blaz’s tax boondoggle wife Chirlie to some event or doing some personal errand got into accident with two civilian vehicles on the FDR Drive only weeks before but instead of vanquishing it into the abyss, this report was fabricated to make it look like the crash was entirely the fault of the first civilian driver that was in the wreck. Two lawsuits by the civilian drivers were filed against the city, nothing is known if the city won the cases or had to settle with the other driver

The Blaz’s enabling of Redmond’s recidivism of destruction of the public city records also translated into a culture of crony corruption, immoral hierarchy abuse by higher brass and rampant discrimination led by his devoted soldier and fixer. One retired cop and former EPU officer was in an incident involving another EPU supervisor who showed up drunk to work and attacked him right in front of Gracie Mansion while the Blaz and his wife were home over an issue about the staffing of the security detail. Redmond conveniently never reported the incident to internal affairs because of NYPD’s claims there was no video record of the fight in front of the heavily surveilled elected official public housing building. A Black EPU officer was relegated to working double shifts guarding Gracie Mansion  in freezing conditions during the winter and wouldn’t allow him a break when nature called and claimed that White EPU officers were given plum assignments while he was relegated to escorting and protecting the Blaz’s offspring wherever they went and also was pass up for promotion for 3 years straight. Another veteran cop assigned to the EPU was subjected to xenophobic remarks about his Muslim faith by other supervisors and was relegated to working shitty shifts and subjected to demotion. Two more EPU cops complained they were subjected to ageist and bigoted remarks that led to shit assignments. This culture fomented by Redmond’s unchecked power has led to nearly $20,000,000 in lawsuits against the city.

Current Mayor de Blasio thinks all this malfeasance along with his haughty sense of entitlement is not a big deal and is only standard procedure to protect officials like him, as he continues to administer contempt for the free press who asks him how he doesn’t see the brazen impropriety of his actions, which even has been chastised by former indicted and incarcerated high ranking police official Bernie Kerik, who also exploited the security rubric for his own benefit and convenience. But this heinous abuse of power by Blaz and Redmond belies the continuing dark trend of government secrecy in the name of government security. Redmond’s arrogant defiance of the DOI investigation was made possible because of this and his enabled rogue actions and elevation of his position and power resemble more like internecine tactics of federal government intelligence agencies than that of a local police force like the NYPD. No wonder the Blaz brought out John Miller to literally exonerate him and Redmond of their exploitation of the EPU officers, because Miller previously did public relations for the FBI before the Blaz suddenly hired him to be his “Intelligence and Counterterror Chief” for the NYPD after he won the election in 2013, a bureaucratic position that sounds entirely and presciently made up for this in plain sight coverup. Miller’s career resume also shows him transitions from corporate news and high brass executive city police positions for 3 decades, showing that Miller has acquired a certain set of skills throughout his career to put favorable spins on questionable policing and governmental policy decisions.

With less than 3 months to go in the Blaz’s abominable reign as mayor, Howard Redmond still seems untouchable after this, he could just say he was following orders after all, which he was, especially given the Blaz’s own contempt for transparency with his recidivist redacting of his city planning programs for parks, health and infrastructure hazards at NYCHA buildings and his segregation derived “affordable housing” program. Redmond’s defensive protectionist tactics against accountability at the service of de Blasio is just and apparently always has been the natural order of things as this way belated DOI report confirms. This corruption is so established that the Blaz doesn’t need to even try to fire DOI commissioner Margaret Garnett like he did to the last one.

Even though Inspector Howard Redmond has been exposed as a power tripping, unaccountable elitist, political loyalist, scumbag dirty ass cop it’s dubious this guy is ever going to get indicted or even resign since his case as been sent to Manhattan D.A. Cy Vance, who couldn’t even indict de Blasio for using his 501 C 4 Campaign for One New York as a slush fund inside City Hall and giving favored lobbyists and donors with city contracts access to policy making decisions. The best Cy could do is proclaim that the Blaz broke “the spirit of the law” and then let the unindicted mayor walk and run for mayor, getting re-elected with less than 10% of registered voters and continue running the city into the ground to this day. So the hopeful chance that Redmond will be going to Rikers is pretty much nil (would have love to see the decarceral cult demand his release).

The day before the DOI investigation of the Blaz’s police escort joyride service came out, news came out that he and his tax boondoggle wife were renovating one of their houses in Park Slope where they also misused the EPU to do recon checks of their high valued properties. So even in the face of DOI’s repot and their demand to reimburse the 320 large that was frivolously spent, Blaz and Chirlie still have tons of money to give their three story house a make over, presumably to flip it for more cash for the Blaz’s run for governor. Maybe this is how he plans to pay back the city for his and also Chirlie’s gross abuse of their NYPD security and maybe the 300,000 clams he owes the white shoe law firm the Blaz hired to defend him in his pay to play corruption trial that devastatingly never materialized.

At least now the Blaz and his trusty blackguard Redmond will have to ride alone together and the EPU will have to now have to find other things to do to pass the time. I hear there’s more guns on the streets, maybe redeploying these officers to stop daily rampant shootings will be more resourceful than shlepping around Dante de Blasio in the tri state area.
