Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York.
The Summer of New York City during the still happening pandemic is only about a week old and Mayor de Blasio was just exposed strutting around town in a ludicrous, unbecoming and inappropriate get up for a man in his elected position and with numerous crises that are still happening under his purview as the Blaz has in short time transitioned from the Mayor Of NYC to the Staycation Mayor of de Blastopia. The Blaz showed up at a playground in Bushwick dressed like a flamingo neanderthal and that corpse from that weekend 80’s movie, grinning like an idiot and posing for pictures to be dispensed on social media in an obvious attempt to distract the press from reporting from the malaise happening on the streets and in his administration and the persistent threat of COVID-19’s Delta Variant.
Look at this fucking hipster, brought to you exclusively by his faithful patsy flack Bill Neidhart
Apparently Mr. Bill sees nothing wrong with the optics of this knowing full well how loathed his boss is to over half the city’s constituents, what’s even more inappropriate is the Blaz is partaking in games with children and beating them, most recently in a kickball game with his schools chancellor as a teammate (??!!). But more appalling is the way the press is reacting to this on the twitter. Not asking them to say anything bad, but after the way the Blaz has been treating them it be better if they don’t say anything at all (which is how Blaz wishes it could be).
Especially coming from local corporate news daily spokespeople like Michelle from Eyewitness News:
After giving my eyewitness observation, the long-time veteran news lady did a cut and run tweet and decided to deny my existence. Way to prove my point about accountability and transparency in the news.
Speaking of transparency, The Blaz can’t be any more clearer that he’s trying his goddamndist to distract everyone and avoid confrontation with the realities that he doesn’t want to see much less the ire of his constituents by crashing children’s summer playtime activities and turning them into safe spaces to avoid scrutiny
On a high note, no post about the Blaz can be complete without him naturally fucking up. In his narcissistic zeal to promote himself and his self-serving hashtag summer initiative, he posted a picture of him wearing his shades on the city’s government account and the reflection caught something quite as inappropriate as his dumb ass shirt.
The more this idiot keeps screwing around the future of NYC is going to have more blight. But he’ll just switch those shades for the rose colored ones he’s been wearing for 7 and a half years.

Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York
Washington Square Park, a green space of historic societal and cultural events and a pleasant environment to sit in solitude or socialize. A place where the likes of Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsburg hung out on the regular, nurturing the scenes of the nascent folk phenomenon and the beat poet movement that would change and influence music and literature forever. WSP would continue for decades to be a destination for all kinds of progressive demonstrations and protests, a place to play an intense game of chess and a convenient place to score a bag of weed, which continues to this very day.
But with the pandemic seemingly fading into the past after a year of collective seclusion and restrictive guidelines, a new history in a very short amount of time has unfolded and it’s one of upheaval and civil unrest and societal decay, with hard drug abuse being consumed in broad daylight and DJ ragers late at night even after the parks closing time. The new generation of denizens as turned the WSP into a governor’s ball festival every night.
Although the general consternation about how Washington Square has become a veritable den of iniquity, the park has been actually going downhill for about a year now since the pandemic began and was initiated by a sole homeless man name John Meshefski claimed and occupied the then cordoned off area around the fountain for about 2 months in the late spring and strutted around nude like he was the last man on earth. Not long after as pandemic guidelines were slowly lifted, NYU students started to throw the first of the weekend all night DJ ragers with zero repression from the NYPD.
This spring and summer, with pandemic restrictions gone, residents of the WSP area have come to find this nightly occupation of the park the biggest threat to the neighborhood since Robert Moses threatened to plow over it with asphalt for vehicular traffic. Which as exacerbated since Mayor de Blasio’s decision to defer his authority to the NYPD to take proactive measures and institute a 10 p.m. curfew which led to total chaos as revelers fought with cops trying to get back in and then got chased across Noho. The failure of that initiative has led to even more nightly baccanalias with booze fueled raves. Despite the claims of community vibes unhampered by police intervention, blowback from brazen park violating activity led to two people getting slashed during one of these ragers, aping what happens on occasion at your regular nite clubs.
Village residents fed up with the NYPD’s alarming insouciance after the failed curfew, the Chief Rodney Harrison and other high brass cops arranged a town hall meeting with them to tell them that their concerns would be addressed (actually they are complaints). The NYC Parks commissioner also gave a token assurance to the frustrated audience that the cops will have a more robust presence to tamp down noise and other illicit behavior. Meanwhile outside, a crowd of advocates for the hard partiers gathered and held there own town hall on the street and got into virulent debates with residential passerby.
Then when Friday arrived, all that was said and promised by Harrison or other high brass cops to bring back a semblance of normalcy to Washington Square Park yielded nothing. But there were other things going on during the day and night’s festivities that were interesting.
Arriving the official start of the weekend at 5 P.M. and got immediately hit with an infernal racket of some guy screaming and warbling into a microphone. Upon closer inspection and it was none other than the big Meshefski himself from last year’s New York Post chronicles of his occupation and naked frolicking. Mr. Meshefski, still homeless and clearly not of sound mind (although he can afford a mic and an amplifier) was singing and cursing up a cacaphonic storm for about 30 minutes until NYC Parks Police arrived and stunningly let him finish his a crapella routine instead of confiscating his speaker and detaining him.
Despite the stunning lack of reasonable repression, the Parks cops strategy worked and Mr. Mishefski complied and shut his mic down and departed from the fountain, but he resumed his racket on the promenade when other people started blaring music full blast.
Despite the cacophony it wasn’t that oppressive if you walked to other spaces (although I’m sure the sound carries in the ether above and outside) and seen people selling their creative wares, people exercising their religious beliefs and bump into a few busking musicians. Or what our local elected leaders like to refer to as “vibrancy in action”. Not to be crotchety, but people ruin things when they turn things like enjoying a day in the park into talking points.
Anyway, to quote any regular citizen, it was all good.
Although there was hardly any shooting up or crack smoking (probably have to show up early in the day to check out Wash Sq. Hampsterdam), people smoking pot and drinking booze were being done discreetly just as during the days of Giuliani and Bloomberg time when there was a NYPD command post parked at 4th St. All in all, the scene at WSP was copacetic. As for the cops, their presence was astonishingly small considering what they told residents a few nights before.
And right at sundown, came the motor scooters…
This gang would come in spurts throughout the day and night, riding around the fountain and by people sitting on benches with total impunity. The predominant demographics of young and youngish people at the park didn’t mind them at all, and some older holdover park goers handled it with visible jadedness.
Although obnoxious and disturbing, these bikers wasn’t the most outlier presence going on in the park, as there was something here amongst the free-for-all going on in Washington Square that actually stood out and explained all this commotion and illicit behavior was going down here.
Situated in the back of the Arch entrance, a bunch of chairs and a picnic table was set up by a group of White women and men and it was suddenly covered with dozens of pizza pies. It was a wonder how they thought they were going to get away with selling food without a visible license or permit but that theory went south after it was revealed that they were giving away pizza slices for free.
They were also giving away free water, clothes, books and menstrual products as we
According to the chalk bulletin and agitprop on the concrete, this charity drive was arranged by an organization known as WSP Mutual Aid which to be presumptuous is some kind of non-profit group to help the poor and needy.
Upon further observation, the people who were partaking in all this charity were not even poor people, but everyone that was hanging at the park at the time. Everyone under 30. And upon a little more observation, this charity org doesn’t like cops at all.
The scene around this gathering was also accompanied by a gaggle of photographers and some journalists, probably here to cover the potential clash between the people and the cops once the park’s scheduled closing arrived at midnight.
But at the moment darkness fill the sky, it got foreboding on the ground. High brass officers and cops showed up with a bunch of barricades and started cordoning off the Arch and part of the entrance/exit ways. It looked like they were going to honor the Village residents complaints and make a serious move the quell the festivities going on in the park.
Not exactly, what they actually did is made a fortress around the arch in order to protect it from vandals. Then all the cops went inside the barricades and stood guard under it and stayed put, so they basically and willingly put themselves into a pig pen. (Surprisingly no one noticed that at the time.)
After they did this, the cops stood down inside there and the park got more raucous and the bass got louder as a rager manifested on the south east side of the park and it was lit up. Literally, lit up.
As the minutes got closer to midnight, the park was still at peak vibrancy. The park denizens didn’t even notice or gave a damn about the NYPD’s presence. Amongst the cacophony of cranked music and loud chatter of the thousands of people in the park that night, the WSP Mutual Fund distinctively stuck out. Instead of packing up their goods as the parks closing time was getting closer, they maintained their makeshift community station and more people assembled in their space. Plus they ordered more pizza to give away for free and laid out more free clothes to grab.
What’s going on here in Washington Square Park is in all essence an autonomous zone. Everything that’s happening is similar in spirit to the CHAZ movement in Seattle. Complete with music performances and an independent marketplace.
The difference being is that its all being ironically monitored and chaperoned by the NYPD. Another ironic thing is the brazen and glaring issue that all this free grub and apparel were obviously not going to the needy because there were any homeless people around at all. The only people enjoying the charity was the revelry. The only thing this WSP Mutual Fund organization is doing is brazenly enabling the nightly rackets and after hours loitering.
Apparently, the only thing this WSP Mutual Fund and their donors and benefactors are actually contributing here is to make Washington Square Park a local and free version of a Bonaroo or Lollapalooza festival and a complete takeover of public space, which they ironically accuse Greenwich Village residents of doing all because they are disturbed by the noise and potential violence every night.
It’s 12 AM, do you know where your abolitionists are?
When the clock struck twelve, voices coming from the WSP mutual fund crowd were yelling “whose park, our park” and the cops stood at ease. (Well, actually they were just having conversations or texting and reading celly messages). And the noise in the park was still at a high level, but the atmosphere was somewhat a version of calm. But about 40 minutes later, a man decided to settle an argument with some other fellows by whipping out a knife and flashlight shaped taser, which caused a stamped of people fleeing the scene and wound up bloodying and bruising a woman who happened to be taking a stroll with a friend.
It may be hard to believe, but cops stepped out from their post and dutifully arrested the perp and escorted him out of the park and people returned to the park and resumed partying down after the harrowing incident. So what Chief Harrison has done with his promise to the residents in the Village here to mitigate the nightly ruckus was to have the NYPD act as glorified security guards of the Arch and glorified bouncers for the Washington Square Park autonomous zone.
It isn’t like Chief Harrison lied to these people, because this is the city’s policy regarding the contentious issue that is the WSPAZ; for Mayor de Blasio, who has been on a lysergic dementia high lately, is relying on his certainty that the cacophony and violence is going to find a way to naturally fade away. Plus this deranged theory is in lockstep with his deranged narrative that the aurally volatile environment happening in the park every night is confirmation of the city’s recovery. It’s no wonder why sociopaths like this event promoter is mocking the NYPD and the Village residents by telling them to move out and organizing boxing matches by the Arch.
They can try their hardest, but look at how many people are here,” said Olivia Stevens, an 18-year-old college student from New Jersey, who comes to the park “because the suburbs are boring and my friends and I have nothing else to do.”
“Nothing is going to stop us from showing up,” she said.
If there is any wonder where Police Commissioner Dermot Shea has been regarding this, all he can do is feebly vent because his boss The Blaz, who has been will not let anything disrupt his hashtag Summer of NYC initiative and will do anything to keep his delusory version of Fun City devolve into Fear City. So the Washington Square Park Autonomous Zone is going to remain as long as the nights are still heated.
The park is theirs.
Cash is no longer king at the subway’s token booths.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority officials said Wednesday that booth workers — who once handled thousands of cash and fare transactions each day — will no longer accept riders’ cash or swap their damaged MetroCards.
Hand-to-hand transactions were banned at the booths in March 2020 as transit honchos feared they put workers at risk of catching COVID-19. Now officials say that shift will be made permanent.
“We currently do not plan to resume cash transactions in the booths,” MTA chief safety officer Pat Warren said during a news conference.
Warren said OMNY — the MTA’s tap-and-pay fare system that will fully replace MetroCards by the end of 2023 — means the authority will no longer need workers in booths to assist riders with cash transactions.
Straphangers can still use cash to pay for MetroCards at automated vending machines in subway stations. The vending machines will eventually be replaced with OMNY machines that also take cash.
Token booth workers will also no longer swap out MetroCards that are damaged or expired. MTA officials said riders with damaged MetroCards will have to mail them in or go to the agency’s customer service center in lower Manhattan to get replacements.
Transport Workers Union Local 100 president Tony Utano — who represents a majority of the MTA’s workforce — feared the move away from cash was a step towards cutting the booth worker positions entirely.
“Not having cash transactions at subway booths is an inconvenience, and an insult, to subway riders,” said Utano. “Station agents alert the police on behalf of crime victims, summon ambulances for injured and sick riders [and] report suspicious, menacing and dangerous behavior.”
The MTA is making a huge mistake.
Actually, a really fucking huge mistake, but in all honesty what else can they do? It was only over a year ago the MTA announced that they needed over 50 billion dollars to fix the subway and then the COVID-19 pandemic happened which inevitably led to devastating financial losses from low ridership. And now the transit system is broke.
Besides the virus that’s still having an impact on transit service, meteoric subway crime rates continues to have an effect going into this summer even as protocols are being slowly lifted.
Although there has been some progress tamping down crime in recent weeks thanks to the way overdue deployment of NYPD to the rails, it’s ludicrously stupid that the MTA is going to abolish station agents so soon when their stupid ass OMNY is not going to be the default fare pay system in 2 years .Plus what the MTA’s quasi-cash ban is essentially illegal in New York City by deliberately inducing commuters to purchase fares via credit or cellphone when city council banned high-end chain fast food restaurants trying to establish their exclusivity payment policy.
But because of the zeal to implement this neoliberal based tech to the turnstiles in order to reduce payroll, without the extra eyes of the station agents, the blowback from their absence will lead to more fare beating especially if metrocard vending machines continue to malfunction and commuters will be hopping the turnstiles if they have no way they can pay which in turn will lead to more serious felonious crimes as recidivist criminals will easily be able to access. more random attacks by wayward mentally ill people that are continuing to be blown off by city services and ultimately more vandalism (they still haven’t caught the lunatics who smashed all those train windows last year).
Plus what the MTA is trying to induce on commuters is essentially illegal in New York City by deliberately making it difficult to make cash purchase.
Get ready for another summer of fresh transit hell, New York City…and beyond.
This scene takes place in South Richmond Hill, Liberty Ave. and Lefferts Blvd.
The sight was quite incredible and truly unexpected.
Two massive vaccine buses giving out two vaccines, one for the two-dose Pfizer and the other for the one-shot Johnsons
Only one problem…
Nobody was doing it.
After spending about an hour scoping this out, zero people lined up to get vaccinated.
Little Guyana is one of the areas currently with the highest COVID infection rates in Southside Queens and likely also one of the top ranked areas in vaccine hesitancy among it’s residents.
The Blaz, a disaster of a mayor and selfish human being, has been talking about equity regarding these vaccines for months and even by sending two mobile vac sites he is still failing his constituents, mainly because the city has not made an effort to inform people of the side effects and there is zero data about re-infections after vaccinations.
What’s interesting about this over-deployment of vac buses is why send two to this one spot instead of sending one of these mobile sites to other neighborhoods with higher COVID infections and hesitancy and lack of available vac sites, notably in other lower income Southside Queens enclaves like Far Rockaway? I guess because of the demographics there is higher chance for the India-based Delta Variant of COVID-19 to spread or maybe it was because the Blaz was on this block a few weeks ago for a street renaming event.
It’s easy to see why the Blaz and his NYC Dept of Health desperately overcompensated to get residents around Little Guyana inoculated and why vaccine equity is all performance, because they have been more concerned with getting tourist destination areas clear of COVID spread first, notably in Times Square by opening up a vac site on Broadway complete with a musical performance to entertain the Blaz and his elite producers, hospitality CEO buddies and Lin Miranda Manuel. And has is typical of the Blaz’s touch of failure, this site is now out of commission because the contractor fucked up and let vaccines spoil. The Blaz also sent, make that used the mobile vac buses mostly as promotional events when he showed up at an event featuring his fauxgressive ally Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in Jackson Heights and other stops in the West and East Village in Manhattan so his son Dante got to promote his side hustle DJ act.
Not much is known how many people got the jabs ever since these buses have been on the streets in the last few months. Looking at this, it gives the impression that it might be on the block for about a week but it was only set up for one day. Although the sight of these buses should give a sense of confidence, it’s ultimately wasteful to send them on the same day the primary election races for Mayor, City Council and Borough President is going on and extremely insulting how late the city took getting at least one bus to this area after months of being one of the city’s highest infected enclaves.
This scene in Queens looks more another exhibition of equity than it is for public health equity and it’s also another exhibition of the mayor’s persistent profligate spending of city tax dollars. Which ultimately results in more passive disenfranchisement of city services.
With homelessness one of the most pressing issues in the 2021 mayoral race, it’s more important than ever that those on the street have somewhere safe to sleep. Oftentimes, that means a non-profit shelter. Yet many of the private security officers who work at these shelters are paid so little they can barely afford health insurance – and are even in danger of homelessness themselves.
Now the New York City Council and Mayor Bill DeBlasio are moving to change this, committing 40.5 million dollars to ensure that these essential workers are paid fair, livable wages.
“For over 4,000 working families – their lives are going to change, this year,” said Mayor DeBlasio at a press conference this afternoon. A group of working people, each wearing union shirts, stood behind him. “You can’t ask someone to help solve one of the most challenging problems in society, but not give them enough to put food on their tables, or pay their rent, or take care of their families.”
His description was borne out by a number of speakers. Homeless shelters can be rife with violence; yet many security officers are paid minimum wage, barely enough to sustain an individual, let alone a family. “We cannot afford to live in the city we work,” said Shaquille Sheppard, a private shelter security officer who himself grew up in-and-out of shelters. “Private security jobs are poverty jobs.” Kyle Bragg, president of Local 32BJ, a chapter of the Service Employees International Union, substantiated this, saying that, “while helping the City’s most vulnerable, many of these workers struggle to afford things themselves,” and, “may even find themselves homeless.”
According to a recent survey, shelter security workers – over 90% of whom are people of color – are more than four times as likely to be homeless or uninsured than the average New Yorker. At the same time, some 48% of those surveyed said they are inadequately trained. In somewhere as dangerous as a homeless shelter, this can mean the difference between life and death. That these shelters cannot even sustain the people they employ – people whose work is essential to the City – is a cruel and vicious irony and one that the pandemic put into even starker relief.
Mayor de Blasio, who promised to end the tale of two cities, and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson and his Democrat majority City Council Cronies waited 8 years to finally do something about the homeless crisis by finally allocate funding for a long overdue wage hike for homeless shelter security guards. Sure there’s nothing wrong with wanting to give the people more money especially when tasked to supervise the city’s notoriously violent and decrepit homeless shelters. But there are a bunch of conflicting problems with this.
First, why haven’t the non-profit providers of these city shelters who are already receiving city funding already gave these security guards the living wages they needed?
Another concern stems from The Blaz’s recent decision to kick all the homeless out of hotels who were sent there from the over-packed shelters to protect them from contracting and spreading COVID19 during the pandemic the last year. All of sudden, the Mayor felt that the time had to come to stop relying on hotels to shelter the destitute because they were not good environments (even though most of these hotels were high end ones in Manhattan and Brooklyn and the homeless people naturally really liked them) and he determined it was safe to put them back into the city’s regular shelters where they could get the health and human services they need (why weren’t these services available at the hotels where they were residing in the last year?). The Blaz also willfully neglected to mention that most of his shelters were still hotels, just in far away enclaves like Eastern and Southeastern Queens and Southeast Brooklyn because his promise to build 90 new shelters in the last 4 years has not been fulfilled.
And it’s clear that he’s chomping at the bit to shuttle the homeless people out of upscale hotels that did no business in 2020 for the mayor’s self-serving recovery for all of us and his hashtag Summer in NYC initiative, which includes vaccine staycation hotel room giveaways to his constituents. It should also be pointed out how Corey Johnson clearly exploited this publicity stunt for a potential ad featuring his anecdote of being homeless himself.
But the biggest problem with this allocation is that it seems to do nothing to help the homeless people but funds the people that police the homeless instead. There’s no guarantee that paying security guards more will ensure safety in these shelters and the hotel shelters.
Besides de Blasio’s tone deaf statement after waiting too long for these once faceless security guards to be able to afford to live in this/your city, his message unsaid about this abominable discrepancy for the displaced and faceless victims of the city’s homeless and housing crises is let them eat pizza.
I was informed that I made some mistakes about the 32BJ union, they did not donate to or endorsed de Blasio’s quix-idiotic presidential campaign, that was the hotel and hospitality union and 32BJ is a property services union. I apologize for the errors, which I deleted from this post, and also the fact that these security guards had to wait 8 years to be properly compensated.
New York, America
Governor Andrew Cuomo sure knows how to throw a celebration. The most recent on being the lifting of most/some of the distancing and masking protocols of the pandemic. Inspired by the CDC and the vaccination stats hitting 70%, Mario’s oldest son suddenly came out like a bolt right out of the blue with a spur of the moment state wide fireworks show to mark the quasi-official end of the old New Normal in New York.
Following a grand statesman address where he announced his state’s and constituency’s very abrupt post pandemic liberation, he found time to declare this little tone-deaf nugget to goad the rest of the citizenry that’s still hesitant and mostly distrustful of the three vaccines still available:
“You want to honor #EssentialWorkers, I’ll tell you how: you get vaccinated so you don’t need essential workers again.”
Leave it to Andy Cuomo to malign and alienate two sects of the working class and think it’s a compliment (just like Micheal Scott from the office but sinister), people who can’t afford health insurance worried about withdrawal symptoms that might hospitalized them and the people who worked in hospitals who risked their lives taking care of the infected and dying in the last year especially after Cuomo still attempted to shut down hospitals when cases started to go down as if this will be the last outbreak on this planet.
As for the fireworks some found it great, like all the people who got front row on the park grass, a spot on a riverside promenade rail, on their luxury condo balcony and rooftop amenity seats; and most obviously by some of Cuomo’s loyalist subjects…
But others, especially some very renowned from being victimized by the Governor’s obscene and flagrant abuse of his executive powers, found the utter idea of the Governor’s fireworks festivities beyond off-putting.
You would think the Manhattan BP candidate would be a little biased, reasonably so, because of her past experience in Andy’s employ, but some of the sky explosion decorations did come out quite eerie and in a way, properly fit the theme of Cuomo’s pandemic victory party.
Some of these explosions looked exactly like the COVID-19 cell.
Not a joke.
Sure it’s a bit of a coinkydink, but observations like these are hard to pass up considering the proclivities of the micromanaging megalomaniac governor. But what can’t be dismissed is that these festivities were not spur of the moment but obviously took month of planning, as does every other fireworks event. Plus Cuomo has already established himself as a self-promoting event organizer with his prior ostentatious grand openings of the Second Avenue subway and the Kusciusko Bridge. As with those events, they meant less for the people that used them every day and more for Cuomo’s behemoth ego-driven legacy he’s trying to leave for himself.
But as with the Kusciusko Bridge and (also his Dad’s bridge) Cuomo’s and New York’s victory over coronavirus might have been greatly exaggerated and premature, even with the CDC guidelines. With a little creatively shady accounting of the 70% vaccination rate for liberty, the Luv Guv’s health dept with an assist from Mayor de Blasio’s sniveling pandemic advisor HHS Director Dr. Mitchell Katz, combined the adult vaccination stats with the vaccination stats of kids and teenagers and decided to use them anyway despite it’s glaring inaccuracies. Plus the 70% indicator is not even accurate because the stats have been amateurishly juked to include the masses who only got the first vaccination while waiting for the second one, which they have to wait three weeks for, which actually makes the real amount of people fully vaxed at about 35%. There’s also the issue of a rash of fake vac cards that have become easily accessible.
Then there is also the issue of the B.1617 Delta Variant of COVID-19, previously known as the India Variant because it wound up killing tens of thousands of citizens in India following a humongous festival thrown by Prime Minister Modi to celebrate that nation’s way premature victory over coronavirus. While this has been determined to be a “virus of concern” by the CDC, the WHO has treated this variant with more severity. The Delta Variant was also found in Canada to be invulnerable to vaccines as well. Which will give us more agita if cases rise again in New York City and upstate. It should also be noted that the city and state have no data for re-infections after vaccines too.
And as is want of Cuomo, there are underlying insidious motives for his public grandiosities and it again comes in the form of more personal and government scandals and in this case both. Right after Cuomo lit up the sky with COVIDsplosion rockets red ball glare, an expose came out about his kid sister raising funds for his long time friend, symbolic adopted brother and convicted partner in crime and government ally Joseph Percoco who was arranging ziti bribes with companies looking to do business with Andrew and Albany. Not for nothing, but it looks like Andy sent his sister as a proxy to shut Percoco up in case he wants to sing to the feds if the nursing home scandal starts really getting hot. And it might just happen, after NYC’s bar association put out their own study proving without a doubt that Cuomo’s edict is what led to the unnecessary preventable deaths of over 15,000 elderly people when he permitted hospitals to send COVID-19 positive patients to be cared for in nursing homes for the six deadliest weeks in the state of New York.
The sad, terrible thing about all this is that it’s still possible that Cuomo is going to skate on by and still be able to run again in 2021, and still get endorsed by the establishment Democrat Party and he still is the chairman of the National Governors Association too. Even though his craven decisions led to the deaths of over 54,000 New Yorkers and if the Delta Variant continues it’s insidious march we might be looking at thousands more to fuck up this speculative greatest summer in New York City history.
This is why Cuomo is acting like he’s the COVID conquering King Of New York. Too bad there is no vaccine for hubris.
This scene takes place on Hillside Ave. in Richmond Hill.
When you just want to think you have the richest house in Queens but aren’t the richest person in Queens.
If Moses saw this after he came down the mountain with God’s to do and not to do list, he would plotz.
Might have an idea who the man of the house could be…
Not just gold, 14 KARAT GOLD!
Mayor de Blasio’s recovery for all of us since spring started has not gone as well as he planned. Because the only recovery that has occurred since the temps got higher is the recovery of felonious crimes and wanton senseless violence. None more pronounced than the steady and now daily rises in random and intentional crimes on the subway, now up by 93%, and the plague of shootings on the streets of New York, now up by 73% from last year. While it is a massive difference because of the “perfect storm of COVID, it’s now worse while the city is in recovery and all social distancing bans are lifted and people are gathering on the streets and commuting more.
While subway crime and shootings have been getting more and more local media attention as the Blaz continues not to acknowledge it (which will need a whole thesis or even a long form post to cover it), other felonious crimes that also rose 20% or more over the year have fallen off the radar, like burglary, robbery, grand larceny, rape, assault and battery and auto theft. The only crime that didn’t go down (but still stayed steady) was homicide, although that’s mostly because these people can’t hit their targets for shit, which is the only good news that’s going on these turbulent new bad days.
These gruesome stats are compounded by a drop in actual arrests for these crimes, which is perplexing given that the NYPD is the biggest police force in the world and they still can’t catch the really bad and crazy guys. Which unsurprisingly includes the misdirected deployment of extra cops the Blaz ordered to walk beats underground.
Speaking of commuting, another subway crime that has seen a rise is fare evasion. In fact, people are still evading fares on city buses too, leading to a loss of $59,000,000 from city and state transit coffers.
To top off this shitshow, it should go without saying that the blight of garbage on the streets and graffiti on residential and commercial buildings is more omnipresent than it’s ever been. And while Mayor Big Slow has devoted more tax dollars to ameliorate those two crises, he and the city still can’t catch up.
In Midtown, a gang of four male teenagers armed with 12 inch serrated knife got on the 4 train and engaged in a bit of the ol’ ultraviolence and took turns with the blade in a spree of attacks on the transit line, starting with attacking a man and slashing him in the face, the victim got off after the train arrived at Union Square. Then they targeted two men and slashed and beat them down as the train was rolling into Astor Place. Then they ganged up on another man and slashed him and robbed his cellphone and then all of them got off at the Brooklyn Bridge stop. The four punks then got on the D train going back uptown and beat down a man and slashed his eye while trying to steal his backpack at the Columbus Circle Station. Then they got caught and arrested by the cops waiting at the 79th St. Station.The spree of wanton brutality was spurred by gang initiation rites.
Couldn’t help but noticed that their ultraviolence spree ended blocks away from city hall. This may have played a factor in Mayor Big Slow finally admitting he was wrong about subway violence, leading to his belated decision to incrementally deploy another 250 cops underground.
In Midtown, a man stabbed another man to death inside a hotel homeless shelter.
Also in Midtown, a man held up a leather store at gunpoint and grabbed all the cash from the register.
Again in Midtown, five young male teenagers took turns firing BB guns from the roof of a fancy hotel and hit a tourist and also hit a city resident in her chest on the street below. Good to see visitors to NYC help us in this recovery for all of us.

Protests resumed a week later during the cease fire agreement between the IDF and Hamas as Palestinian protesters blocked traffic during the demonstration, at one point all of them bowing down to the east in prayer, but then got heated when cops started to move in and force them off the avenue, leading to dozens of arrests. Later on, a man riding in a pickup truck festooned with flags of Palestine threw a firework at people coming out of a Diamond District building which wound up injuring a woman.
In Times Square, a man got into an argument with his brother over selling rap cd’s in the area and then he shot at him and missed and the stray bullets hit two women and a four-year-old girl in a stroller as she was waiting on line to go into a store with her aunt.

The rapper/gunman cut his hair and trimmed his beard got out of the city and fled to Florida where he got caught and arrested by U.S. Marshalls and an NYPD fugitive task force unit, along with his girlfriend/accessory as they were about to order grub at a McDonalds. (I didn’t know the NYPD had bounty hunters?)
One of the women who witnessed the dispute between the two brothers which led to her getting shot has to live with a bullet fragment in her leg for the rest of her life. But the mayor probably thinks she’s not a real New Yorker.

The man remarked he only wanted to resemble a cop with a souvenir NYPD shirt and hoodie because he doesn’t feel safe in New York City, sharing a sentiment that’s become common among the citizenry and providing this post with it’s obligatory theme song.
And again in Times Sqaure, Palestinian and Israeli demonstrators clashed during Pro-Israel rally being held by the TKTS plaza.

The couple’s tumultuous relationship came to a head when the man beat her down in her apartment four months earlier and a judge put an order of protection for her to keep her boyfriend away, even though they lived in the same building. Before he killed her, the man tried to break into her apartment through the fire escape but cops showed up and were able to stop him.
Despite the man having a court order against him and scheduled court hearing on the day of the murder and six prior domestic abuse charges made by the woman for his attacks going back to last year, the cops decided not to remain by the building to prevent another inevitable attack, enabling the man to go up the fire escape again when they left and then proceeded to slaughter his ex.

Also in Central Park, a woman followed and vociferously cursed at a man who served time for and testified against President Trump during congressional hearings about his former boss’s payoffs to cover up affairs with two Playboy centerfold models as he was walking on the street.

In Tribeca at the Chambers St. Station, a man ran up to a tourist and stabbed him twice with a screwdriver in front of his family. The victim’s wife notified transit cops and had him arrested. This was a few weeks ago so he’s probably back riding the rails right now.
Also in Tribeca, a trust fund baby man who got busted for throwing illegal booze parties inside of the loft building his mommy rents for him while charging people and kids 100 bucks to get inside during the pandemic is still throwing more speakeasy ragers despite complaints from his wealthy neighbors while he defiantly refuses to let in Department of Buildings agents inspect the building in utter defiance of judge’s orders by making the lamest excuses to blow them off.
Since this recidivist scumbag was breaking distancing protocols and breaking the law letting rich kids get loaded, why didn’t de Blasio’s NYPD send some coppers to break down his door and frog march him to the 1st Pct. in handcuffs? Well, it’s too late now since indoor event guidelines have been lifted. So why don’t they send the cops back to see if this booze party promoter is making sure his customers are vaccinated?
All of those questions are now moot because the greedy entrepreneur left the building virtually unnoticed and unscathed of any criminal charges.

Again in Union Square, a man randomly attacked a woman and slashed her multiple times until a Samaritan intervened by spearing the psycho to the floor and holding him an headlock while another Samaritan pinned his legs down as they awaited the arrival of some of the 250 extra cops the Blaz finally sent to the subway.
In Chinatown, a man laid a roundhouse punch to a woman’s face who was passing by him on the sidewalk in broad daylight and in front of patrons dining at a restaurant shanty and the recidivist criminal with over 40 prior arrests for similar acts of violence feigned he was the one who was struck.
In Greenwich Village, a man randomly attacked another man on the sidewalk by hitting him in the face with a blunt object.

Also in Washington Square Park, public crack smoking, smack shooting and drug dealing has laid predominance inside the park once again. Because of this public display of societal decay and the wanton and slovenly behavior of visitors using the park for rager parties going into the early morning hours which consists of high decibel EDM music and tons of detritus left behind, de Blasio’s NYPD enacted a 10 p.m. curfew every weekend ensuring not one soul dares to occupy the park for one second. Even including residents that live in the area and nearby the landmark public space.
Yeah this is going to work out like gangbusters just like the curfew the Blaz enacted on the city this time last year.
Only a week after the curfew was implemented and a NYPD militia was deployed to the park, gangbusters manifested itself as hundreds of people were still hanging around, getting drunk and loaded and throwing ragers in the park at 11 p.m. and got into a violent clash with the cops as they tried to make them disburse by pushing bikes and barricades at them, leading to 23 people getting cuffed.
Because of the bad optics of the over-deployment of cops and their obligatory use of excessive force (MOVE! BACK!) which only provoked more violence and chaos which culminated with cops chasing citizens away from the park and continuing to pursue them on the streets, de Blasio’s NYPD didn’t show up the next evening, as hundreds of people returned and threw another rager while others drove ATV vehicles in the public space.

In Cypress Hills at the Broadway Junction Station, a homeless man putting on his pants on a bench got up and randomly pushed a 65-year-old woman onto the tracks.
