Wow, we finally got zoning protection. Under the Bloomberg reign of greed and stupidity that has so greatly hurt this great city, mass displacement and driven out a record amount of New Yorkers, finally now after the destruction of the East Village we finally got some zoning protection!
I went to bed in the East Village and woke-up in a bad xerox of mid-town turning into a bad xerox of Dubai. Very guilty people think this is going to some how make up for what they have done but it won't.
Just like some very wrong people have done some very bad things to me -- it will come back to them....patience is required and in every culture around the word there is a shared belief that what goes around comes around. People get their's even if it is late in the 9th inning of their lives just desserts will be served.
In the poem I wrote when St. Ann's from 1847 was still standing I tell you about a telephone conversation I had with Amanda the people's Burden. My brief conversation with her underscored my belief of what a ruthless awful creature she is. The wicked witch of The East Village and like Bloomberg she kids herself we believe the phone double talk.
St. Ann's from 1847 survived everything all these years but NYU's need and greed to build yet another mega dorm in their quest to mega dorm the East Village to death. NYU could not get the job down without the help of the USPS which loses a record amount of money, multi-billion dollars A YEAR!!!!
My maternal grandfather was a mail man in the Bronx but what the USPS has evolved in to is a corrupt organization that abuses their Federal Status and they broke the law when they sold the air space to NYU and did not notify the State of New York as legally required. Andrew Cuomo is not going to sue the USPS over the air space sale....no siree. I had a very interesting talk with the head of Environmental Crimes about the illegal sale and had and Andrew Berman talk. The USPS is a multi-billion dollar loser a year and they want to kid themselves it is because of email but their customer service makes the Mafia look warm and friendly and they break every law possible blocking fire hydrants and selling air space without notifying the State of NY so the State can examine is this in the best interest but now after the fact, now that Bloomberg and the people's Burden destroyed the neighborhood and neighborhoods through New York they continue to lie and try and kid us they are our heroes. They will go down in history as destroyers of this great city and Bloomberg flushed democracy down the toilet with the help of Christine Quinn who is in bed with developers because she has sold her soul along with the rest of them....welcome to the greed generation.
It will take many, many years for the city to begin to repair the damage.
Have you ever seen the streets in such bad shape? They were better in Colonial Times. What about the record breaking number of infrastructure related problems like man hole covers, gas leaks, sewage break, steam pipe explosions, sink holes galoe, water main breaks.....why?
Because Mike Bloomberg and his socialite city planner Amanda the people's Burden pushed a reckless tsunami of development on "old" New York's infrastructure.
Glad we got it but I am not celebrating unless you it is in thinking of people getting their just desserts. I wish I could take the high road but right now I can't....
FAR WEST VILLAGE AND EAST VILLAGE REZONING PASSED,
Join Us For Celebrations Tonight
THE CITY COUNCIL HAS JUST VOTED TO APPROVE THE FAR WEST VILLAGE AND EAST VILLAGE (3rd and 4th Avenue Corridors) REZONINGS WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO ENACT FOR YEARS, WHICH MEANS THEY TAKE IMMEDIATE EFFECT! These two rezonings will go a long way towards stemming the tide of inappropriate development in these two historic residential neighborhoods, and are a tremendous victory for community efforts in the face of stiff initial resistance from the city! Read the coverage in today’s CRAINS NY BUSINESSHERE.
