Same Old Story…

Living in the city and outer boroughs is not easy these days. I personally agree with DiBlasio, but Cuomo seems to have an interest in big business:

If this passes we may see a light at the end of the tunnel concerning corporations contributing to this imbalance that they helped create. I still blame Bloomberg for most of this. We see it happening in Jersey City as well. Even though they are trying to gentrify certain areas, at a community meeting for our district, the police captain admitted that they don’t have the man/woman power to control crime. Saturday night a woman was mugged in front of my building. They are building a park across the street and have underestimated the parking situation, not to mention that the park will not be gated or fenced in. I think this is urban planning at its worse. So whoever is throwing this money around, needs to take into consideration the communities they are affecting. I know of 2 landmark situations where blocks have been excluded. Not much protection there. But this too shall have some kind of conclusion.

Here is another thing I stumbled across:
