^the annexation of Hawaii as a U.S. territory after U.S. business interests lead a bloodless coup of the monarchy. Democracies are if nothing, always ethical.

Dromm, “I don’t care, let’s just close the street permanently and let the wealthy property owner sue us!”

In what Democratic country is this ever an option?

A judge will stop the DOT from doing that.

it's worked again and again over the decades, like the demapping of a slew of streets that helped build the original WTC, the removal of a dozen or so lower east side streets to build public housing....the use of eminent domain to take over private property for use by for profit entities like sports teams.....

I noticed the owners of this dealership are illegally storing their cars in front of their property. The law is pretty clear on this. I would be more concerned about safety with them  DRIVING ON THE ACTUAL SIDEWALK TO STORE THEIR CARS, than the legal driveway they use. Has anyone called 311 to report this illegal situation? I have, but the more calls, the more enforcement.
0n 87th street between 34th Avenue and Northern Blvd. for $200/month. Let me know if you are interested. Thank you.

Had lunch at Farine on Friday, during which they were filming a segment for NY1 about "the best chicken sandwich" in Queens. They still don't have it together organization-wise, which we found both amazing and amusing, as we were not in a hurry.

We went up to the counter and ordered, and the young woman seemed to be punching our orders into her register. Then she said we should sit down and someone would bring us the food. She did not ask for money.

Confused, we sat down and a few minutes later a waitress came by and asked for our order. We said we had already ordered. She went away to check on that, then came back and said that no, we had not ordered because she was supposed to take our order for table service vs takeout.

So--confusing. But she was very accommodating and sweet and the food was absolutely delicious. My husband had the scrambled eggs and salmon on a croissant, which came with salad, and I had the grilled chicken club sandwich, which came with fries. Everything was truly excellent--I'm almost sorry I had that sandwich, because now I'm craving it, and it was not exactly a weight-watching meal choice. I don't get why they can't get their act together, service-wise, but the food is outstanding and the staff is amiable, seem to be doing their best, and not simply neglectful--so I wouldn't avoid the place because of that. They seem to be doing very good business, which is great for the neighborhood. And they seem to be popular with people of every ethnicity you see in JH. So far I have stayed away from the pastry, but it all looks amazing.

I found this article that says the last store closed in Jan. 2018, so it's been about a year and 4 months.
