Re: “The Private Lives of Public People

I am Lara by name from Australia, i have used every single spell worker on the internet, spent untold amounts of money and discovered they are all fakes...i was the fool though; doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. In the end, I decided that I wanted a tarot reading to know what my future held for me; I contacted a woman who lives locally to me and she told me about a man named (Priests Abija); he does not advertise on the Internet, has another job for income, has no set prices, makes no false promises and refuses to help anyone that cannot be helped and even helps
for free sometimes, he will give you proof before taking money. He is a wonderful man and he was the only person who actually gave me real results. I really hope he doesn't mind me advertising his contact on the Internet but I'm sure any help/ extra work will benefit him.here his via email address (profectwilliamspiritualtemple@gmail.com) He travel sometimes.i cant give out his number cos he told me he don’t want to be disturbed by many people across the world..he said his email is okay and he’ will replied to any emails asap,love marriage,finance, job promotion ,lottery Voodoo,poker voodoo,golf Voodoo,Law & Court case Spells,money voodoo,weigh loss voodoo,any sicknesses voodoo,Trouble in marriage,HIV AIDS,it's all he does Hope this helps everyone that is in a desperate situation as I once was; I know how it feels to hold onto something and never have a chance to move on because of the false promises and then to feel trapped in wanting something
more.

Re: “7. Bushwick

Bushwick does not have the worst crime rate in Brooklyn -- not even close. I've lived in Bushwick for several years and never felt threatened or unsafe. The areas around the Morgan and Jefferson stops get all the attention, but I think the nicest (but less well-known) areas are the residential streets off the Myrtle-Wyckoff and Halsey stops, near Irving Square Park. There's not a lot of cool cafes and bars around there yet, but it's much cleaner and quieter, and the architecture is much more well-preserved -- there's some really pretty blocks of limestone brick row houses.

Re: “5 Art Stars You Need to Know: LaToya Ruby Frazier

Her work is both beautiful and a tribute to a community. Thank you, LaToya!

I am a member of Save Our Community Hospitals, which tried but failed to prevent greedy "healthcare" giant UPMC from tearing the heart out of Braddock by destroying its hospital. An empty field now marks the site.

UPMC has taken its business elsewhere, building a palatial hospital in a nearby wealthier suburb.

Yep, "Bled White" is about NYC, or at least it takes place in NYC.

Re: “4.Cobble Hill

Cobble Hill is a wannabe Park Slope. Paul Auster took the step up and moved to Park Slope and he's never looked back! He talked to BAM about his love of Park Slope: http://bit.ly/zGM7p5

Re: “Continuing Education for the Book Publishing World

I would venture you have NOT taken our workshops because I have never met you. Please be mindful of badmouthing others only to make yourself look good is not a good thing.

Re: “7. Bushwick

Crime is everywhere in New York. I've had two friends that live in the West Village. Both have gotten mugged. You learn to be street smart and if you decide to live in New York you better learn fast. Park Slope, Williamsburg, the city, pretty much where ever!

Re: “2. Fort Greene/Clinton Hill

If all you are seeing at night is gentrifiers then you need to walk around closer to Classon Ave, where people still get mugged quite often.

Re: “12. Red Hook

no, not hasty... formulated from over a year and 100+ conversations with strangers on the subject.
Seriously. There is an irrational aversion to bus riding. Also a widespread unfamiliarity. You wouldn't believe how many people don't even know that their MTA card can work on the bus.
Most know that they can get on the subway, go over on the AirTrain , then board a plane to anywhere in the world without issues. But tell them that they can transfer to a bus and ride a mile or two and they act like it's a trip to Mars.
Entitled, soft, or both?

Re: “1. Greenpoint

@CafeGrumpy
Sounds like you should probably move somewhere without homeless people.

Posted by Jonny Diamond on 10/06/2011 at 9:02 AM

Re: “1. Greenpoint

Pos "journalists" like you turned Williamsburg into a "hipster mall" so keep reporting about how cool Greenpoint is and its fate is sealed. ".. a marvelous hidden quality (we’re looking at you Oak Street)" - hilarious since the main "hidden" attraction on Oak is the rooms for rent hostel popular with sex offenders. "Reading under the trees at McGolrick Park" - under the tree that a homeless man recently hanged himself?. I could go on and on but you obviously don't understand shit about this neighborhood and what really goes on here since you're too busy sipping overpriced cocktails at neohipster bars.

You would be what's called a "gentrifier."

Re: “2. Fort Greene/Clinton Hill

Finish what you started! At night, what? At night, all I see are all the "gentrifiers" hanging out at the bars and restaurants with people who feel entitled with an attitude to match. If we're number 2 on your list, why would you say something like that?
I agree with the previous comment.

Re: “7. Bushwick

Also home of the worst crime rate in Brooklyn. My Apartment was robbed twice in one month.
But yeah, Roburta's is amazing and Little Skips on Myrtle is an awesome coffee shop. :)

Louis. I think you missed the subtlety of Seitz's point. It might pay to view/read beyond the first few lines!

Limited housing stock and M1 zoning keeps the hordes out.

Re: “12. Red Hook

Hmmm... I think you're being a little hasty with the snide socioeconomic judgment, ebmerc. I don't think it's that people think they're above the bus -- they'll gladly take it if it's fast and efficient. The problem is, the bus is a lot slower than the train.

1.25 miles walk in the freezing cold of winter is not ideal. I wouldn't recommend any out-of-towner friends move to Red Hook in their first year in NYC if they work in the city. It seems more like a breaker-inner neighborhood that you move to later, like Ditmas. And like Ditmas, it ain't cheap.

Red Hook is really secluded -- and that's part of what's so charming about it. Aren't you glad everybody ISN'T moving to your neighborhood, ebmerc?
