It's unbelievable that NYC cannot take care of the roads in this blizzard. Today morning....Tuesday....13th street in Manhattan from University Pl to 6th Avenue was blocked because it hadnt been plowed.

And my block in Brooklyn hasnt seen a plow this season at all.....at least 5 blocks in each direction are like that.

I can only imagine this is a result of the budget cuts. A pure WTF Moment in the life of us NYers

Bloomberg said today.

Bloomberg said the streets might be plowed in another 24 hours. “I don’t know that you ever get everything plowed because there are streets that aren’t even mapped but I think that you can expect another 24 hours before we get to everyone and even then I’m not sure,” he said. (from 1010 wins site)

I think if a bunch of ADV Taggers can find obscure tags in locations all over the five boroughs using Google the city can find a few streets that are somehow not on there maps. They still use maps ? I guess the budget shortfalls are not from to many IT guys.

F$#k this I think I will have that small particle of brain lodged in my skull removed and get a city job I here the benies are great.

Somehow, all of the dings and scratches my car has suffered over the years at the hands of my parking garage attendants seem somewhat less significant at the moment.

As does my monthly parking bill.

Fuck

So I just came home from being snowed in elsewhere to find that my apt was broken into. Missing so far is quite a bit of cash, some expensive knick knacks, a couple of cell phones and other random items. I am so fucking pissed off. Anyone want a completely worthless watch dog?

Oh yea,

Best part about that video is that the Explorer is also city-owned

Sorry about your apartment Eddie. Make a police report you never know these guys could be making other hits and more info might help to catch them.

dont blame the mayor this is all the sanitations doing
its a slow down there not happy with the 400 lay offs and
the change the city is trying to change there hours to cut over time
they have failed to clear exit/ entrance ramps they have pushed snow
that was plowed off the road back onto the road causing 13 cars to get
stuck in the center lane of the gowanus exp. Ask me in person and i
Can give greater details on this matter
FUCK SANITATION WORKERS... they are putting lives at risk
PD/FD/Ambulances etc Best of all I was told that they refused to clear
PCTs streets. SO its open Season on Green shirts. They are short sighted
Snow will only last a few days points on there lic will last 5 years
