Seems the posters are spot on. Sometimes the truth makes people uncomfortable.
kristin iversen i love youuuu!!
Not to mention not being able to hear the announcements. When you see me running because I'm aware of danger and you're still sitting there... welp.
@Ingrid Got it, will update to reflect that. Thanks!
I am sick and tired of this holier-than-thou attitude regarding Staten Island coming from people who clearly know little to nothing about the community or the people who live here. Staten Island is an incredibly diverse borough. Two of our city councilmembers are Republican and one, Debbie Rose (an African American woman who has occupied the post since 2009), is a Democrat. We are also home to one of New York State’s few openly gay Assemblymembers, Matt Titone, who has been in office since 2007.
The notion that Staten Islanders are not interested in green initiatives is complete nonsense. We have an active CSA, busy greenmarkets, numerous community gardens, and a wonderful Heritage Farm at Snug Harbor that supplies produce to our local farm-to-table restaurants. Many of us maintain gardens in our backyards and several of my neighbors raise chickens.
And guess what? We already compost! What we can’t fit into our backyard compost bins we carry to the greenmarket collection site. We welcome the opportunity to pilot a municipal composting program.
In fact, Staten Island’s North Shore is probably an ideal community in which to test the program. Yes, we have numerous single-family houses, but we also have a substantial mix of small apartment buildings, large co-op buildings, and waterfront condos. The many different types of dwellings will help the city to understand what it will take for a composting program to be successful city-wide.
It’s wonderful that you want Brooklyn to take part in piloting the composting initiative, but there’s no reason to disparage your Staten Island neighbors to make your point.
Hi there! Just to clarify, I'm not "the" organizer of this. There's a few really great dedicated people working on the campaign. Swipe Back wasn't even originally my idea! Melissa Freedman came up with the idea to have buttons. I just made the website. Just trying to give credit where it's due!
A pilot program of curbside compost collection DID happen in Brooklyn, specifically Park Slope years ago... mid 90s i believe.
That woul just deprive the MTA of money they would be earning, and will just push up the next round of fare hikes.
Pretty certain you call the doorman "creepy" because he's Dominican. Come on now.
smoking does make your fingers fall off fyi.
This is true Daniel but, anything in open view is a misdemeanor. When you get searched by cops they usually take everything out of your pocket at which point it becomes "in plain view." They use this technique to actually bring you to jail rather than write you a ticket.
Reviews of the television series 'Girls' land like sloppy black fudge on a sundae of "this bullshit should have been a 75 minute movie in 2003 instead of a trite lets take Adderall ( author a fan) and shop at an overpriced Cobble Hill shop ( yellow mesh shirt traded at club while Hannah was high on cocaine from Bird, Smith St; 250$ ) blah blah boring to begin with. Why recap? Unoriginal cooler talk snoozefest. L, the lazy.
Are you insane? These buildings by Arrechea are great! Are you so dogmatically and idealogically twisted that you can no longer appreciate fine scupture? Wake up!
Great review...so good that I think I may get rid of my cable and just read your reviews...#deadserious
And do you not have you're own agenda? Why are you so spiiteful towards the critics here? Aren't they viewers too with opinions of their own? You assume a great deal about a person you don't know and make left field slanders towards them because you hate that they can't stand you're movie? Lol. They hired the wrong cast. Period. I haven't seen the film and know that much. Youth these days obviously don't remember or know that less than 2o years ago movies were way better on the whole.
What a twist on nothingness! If the work is good, say so, elaborate, tell me . . urine on a cloud is insulting not tingling! Providing an offhanded compliment to Patrick Berran and then slamming two others without explaining is worthless commentary. If you're an art critic worth your paint, critic, critic, critic! Yawn!
I thought I had a reason to kill myself. You just reminded me!
I was born and raised in Williamsburg. It was the greatest eclectic community around during the 50s and 60s. But it fell into a deep well of despair and dis-repair during the 70s and 80s.
The rezoning in Williamsburg has brought it back to life. Thank God for forward thinkers. Thank God for those who look to the future and don't get mired in the past. It's a beautiful thing to see Williamsburg thriving again!
do you guys know or care about anything else besides this gal? sheesh
