Go do it. No one is going to stop you

maybe at the beginning of the month. i'm sure cops with ticket quotas could find some reason to write one for that.


They won't I guarantee it. I have a feeling you won't either.

My thoughts on this? The building is in negotiation to be sold

I think that seems likely. I just read somewhere else that the HSBC is moving. It's in that building complex right? Makes complete sense to me. TBH that building is SUCH a decrepit eyesore. I am not wishing for luxury condos, but I also wouldn't mind maybe a mini development for community space.

Actually makes sense, looks like the leases are not being renewed so the building can be sold and redeveloped.

After many years of much neighborhood battling, I envisage another massive 6 story building there, exactly like further up 37th Ave.

The buildings along 37th Ave are not Historic District and so can be redeveloped is my understanding.

Bumping this thread, because, WE NEED SOMETHING TO HOPE FOR.

Happened to see Queens Community Board 3's Agenda for this month's meeting and lo and behold...Swim Two Birds has applied for a full liquor license. So...maybe...can it be???

Oy, settle down. Just wanted to give the people a laugh/maybe something to look forward to. I mean clearly not the best time to open a restaurant, but hey. Once we get back to "normal" and the people want to eat out again, it actually might be the best time to open a restaurant.

^gaslighting.

Gaslighting definition: manipulate (someone) by psychological means into questioning their own sanity.

^ Are you questioning your sanity? If so, it might not be my fault. You should get that checked out! I hope all is well!

^nope, it's actually about manipulating someone to question their reality - how they perceive things, if their reactions and emotions are valid, etc. So, when you tell someone to "settle down" over a normal reaction (and in this case, a very mild one), that's a manipulation tactic to try and make them and others question if their reactions are valid. It's a classic form of emotional abuse within relationships.

In this instance, telling someone to "settle down" over saying that person wishes people would stop necro-ing a long dead topic is pretty low stakes gaslighting, but if that's how you normally treat people - dismissing and downplaying their reactions, you are a gaslighter. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbVPcPL30xc

Ok sure. Whatever you say. Sorry for gaslighting you!

For the rest of the posters here who are interested: all I did was see something online that provides a REAL and FACTUAL update and post about it, partly with an intention of humor. Perhaps this is a breakthrough, perhaps it's not. Either way, hope you enjoyed this weird banter and valuable lesson about gaslighting! ;D

Anyway, I'm done here!! Thanks all!
