Hey chingwa: this you?

Quote
The tragedy is that if the Democrats could actually have some backbone...
This is exactly the problem.  But when have democrats ever had backbone?  Not in the last 25 years... anyone with backbone gets marginalized or run out of the party.  How long are people willing to wait for Democrats to come around?  If they aren't going to turn around after this latest loss, they aren't ever going to and I don't see any moves in that direction.

I see a lot of noise being made by democrats and progressives, but not anything from the Democratic party "leadership"... all these people are going to have to look/go elsewhere if they want to enact change.  This party was bought and sold a long time ago.


What happened to  the person who was for "backbone" "non-bought politicians" who want "change". Oh right, its her tone and pod personality.

PS; Where's the grift?

Neighborhood Chat / Re: Target coming to jackson Heights

That whole corner with the Target, Chick-Fil-A, Starbucks, Chipotle and Smashburger looks nice.  Hoping it might encourage the rest of the establishments on that block to up their game.
If past history is any indicator, the other stores will more likely go out of business rather than step up their game. Rents will go up and local stores that do not have the purchasing power of national chains will find it hard to compete. The proliferation of name brand stores at the cost of local businesses is one of the things that costs neighborhoods their unique character, but it seems to be what people want.

Again, and I realize no one cares, 37 th ave would be a better pedestrian street. 
It's not that people don't care, it's that people don't agree with you.  37th Ave would not be a good pedestrian street.  Here we are in a thread complaining about worse traffic, caused in part by the temporary pedestrian street, and you are recommending shutting down more streets which will worsen traffic by an order of magnitude.  If you want better traffic flow the solution is not to close down more streets.  If you just want to F cars out of existence through some kind of utopian magic that's fine but people aren't going to agree or find much relevance in such fantasies.

Close 37th instead of 34th, not in addition to.  It is quite common to close the shopping street to traffic,  not the residential street with apartment buildings.
There are no driveways on 37th avenue. Many corner stores have delivery entrances on the side street.  Delivery zones can be put on the side streets.

Restaurants & Food / El Patio temporarily closed?
« Last post by leosussan on Yesterday at 09:56:09 PM »
Does anybody know if El Patio (on Northern Blvd) is coming back? Loved the spot (though a little expensive) but saw that they’re listed as closed temporarily, wanted to see if anybody had an understanding of whether or not this is true, or if they’re closure is permanent.

Thank you!

She has the entire GOP quaking in their boots
The only quaking going on is from laughter.  She isn't even taken seriously by most of her own party.  She's a narcissistic grifter, playing to the cameras and attention.  I don't understand how anyone can be blind to such pod-person-like shallowness of character, yet some people just lap it up.

 Well, there goes that idea. To go and pleasantly shop for groceries leisurely @ Target.

The line along 82nd Street to simply get into Target  is insane.
