Neighborhood Chat / Re: How do you get to LaGuardia?
« Last post by Jeffsayyes on Today at 06:28:26 AM »
don't get me started on how embarrassing everything with LGA is... but I take the Q70 and it's usually been totally fine. It pretty much is a free bus because most people don't bother paying. They should have just made the buses sexier rather than build a monorail...

FWIW, I'm pretty convinced that the point of the monorail was because Related wanted to build a shopping mall in Willets Point, the monorail would have fed a guaranteed population into that mall, and Cuomo is corrupt like that. But because that mall was a dumb idea in the first place, it was killed, and now there's a monorail terminal in the middle of nowhere.


I also feel it was an easy way to spend money. No one powerful was opposed and they need to spend money to satisfy lots of people with their hand out. Big waste, askew vision. Disappointing use of so much of our taxes.

Reading Gothamist in the foreseeable future?

WNYC.org:

WNYC, Two Other Public Radio Stations Acquire Gothamist and Sister Sites

In a deal largely funded by two anonymous donors, WNYC is acquiring the news site Gothamist, including its archives, domain name and social media assets. The move comes as part of a larger deal involving two other public radio stations and Gothamist's network of local news sites. KPCC in Pasadena, Calif., will take over LAist, while WAMU in Washington will acquire DCist.

Gothamist was never aware of anything outside Manhattan and Brooklyn. We could have been Here There Be Dragons for all they cared. That's part of what made DNA so terrific.

Foodtown seems like the only place to go. I hope the deli in the Bruson will get a good selection when they get their license.

Hi noob, I think the board president has started something - I remember getting an email about it but I didn't pay close attention. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Thanks! Please PM me the info. Much appreciated.

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Con Edison construction on 35th Avenue

According to the article, a rep from Con Edison says that the construction work is not connected to the fire.
I find that really hard to believe. Especially since Coned negligently cut a gas main two weeks ago on that same block and hundreds of residents are going to be without cooking gas or gas dryers for 5 months on 85th st. These are the same apartments that have no electricity today due to this man hole fire. I think coned is just trying to get out of their responsibility and not have to pay for damages. Just my theory of course.
