Feminism classes should be taught in high school or as early as middle school so these issues can be addressed early on. Lets focus on real solutions to real problems.

Not preaching just informing on how bad it is at AC & C.  A woman from the JH area listed her 11 month old orange female cat for re homing on Craigslist.  I answered the ad offering to help but she was in such a rush she took the cat to AC & C on June 10th.  It took me until today to find her online because AC & C changed her name from Luna to Saffron and you have to have her number A1056682.  After only 2 1/2 days she is now on death row and will be euthanized tomorrow morning.  The only way she can get adopted now is if a rescue group "pulls" her.  I tried calling both AC & C and rescue groups but only got voicemails and email contacts.  I wanted to find out if there was some physical reason for euthanizing an 11 month old house cat and why they deemed her unadoptable.  I am writing this because I think more people should know how bad this system is.  There is no Care here. Every morning at least a dozen if not more animals, both healthy cats and dogs are euthanized  A while ago when now comptroller Scott Stringer was running for office he sent out a petition with a good plan to change the way AC & C was run, but promptly forgot all about once elected.
My point here is PLEASE do not take any animal to AC & C.  It is almost certainly a death sentence.

thank you for listening.

I actually ran into Scott Stringer when he was trying to get votes near the Jkson Hts 74th street Roosevelt ave train station and BEGGED him to stop the killing, again promises he did not keep!

Most rescue groups will not pull an animal.

If they have a foster, they SURE will!

I am getting a new foster dog soon, they pulled her out and she is at the vets now :)

No broker in their right mind would ever say a place is 300 sq ft smaller than it really is!

No, but they have had at least 5 errors I can recall related to square footage (on their website). Usually from uploading the incorrect floor plan. I really think it's a mistake.

This is a huge problem in Jackson Heights, and in NYC in general. I'm in my early twenties, female, and have suffered from street harassment the entire time I've lived in this neighborhood, on a constant basis (more often on Roosevelt and side streets). I've gotten the simple stuff, like wolf whistles and catcalls and disgusting comments and stares.

There have been worse situations, as well. Multiple times, men have tried to follow me home, asking me where I live. I've been followed down Roosevelt Avenue with men trying to grab me. Usually they back off when I respond with extreme anger, but I can't always do that because I never know if that response is going to get me hurt or worse. I've actually asked my boyfriend to walk behind me down the street for ten minutes, pretending he doesn't know me, so he can see how many guys give me lewd stares or make inappropriate comments. I've even had to shoo away a disgusting man who followed a young girl (probably around 14) off the 7 train trying to touch her and talk to her.

I don't think it's a cultural thing, although almost 100% of the men who have done this to me in JH have been Hispanic/Latino (often speaking Spanish and thinking I don't understand -- I am fluent). I think it's a matter of education; men with education, especially on social issues, seem to be less likely to be street harassers. Obviously, anyone can be a street harasser or a rapist, but it's definitely not a racial thing as some people on this thread have implied. My boyfriend is Latino and neither he nor any of his loved ones/friends were raised to think like this -- he agrees that it is perpetuated by ignorance.

Men...it is important to educate yourselves on the issues facing women today, like this. With understanding and support I hope this kind of nonsense won't be happening on the same scale when I eventually have kids someday. If you see a man harassing a woman, CALL HIM OUT!

i'm hispanic myself, I think men born here in the US culture don't do it nearly as much as immigrants raised in other countries.

looking at the floorplan it seems its closer to 1400 sq ft if you add it up, still it's very close to $1,000 per sq foot which is insane, especially with the maintenance. I can buy the studio next door to me and create a similar unit and the maintenance would be around $900 for the two apartments.

They are really pushing the prices, so glad I bought in 2012. IDK how far these prices can go. At some point I would think there has to be some sort of crash.

they are all over the place with their sq footage though, this unit is listed at over 1,500 sq feet and actually seems smaller than the 1.14m apt.

but then that one doesn't add up to 1500+ sq feet either so I'm not sure where they are getting their figures from. I think the 4 bedroom could be around 1,500 sq ft.
