I have a meeting all the way up near 125th & Lenox on Thursday. Hopefully it will be mostly clear of all the official hoopla, though I imagine there will be plenty of unofficial hoopla to snarl everything up there. I especially can't wait to fight my way through the airports. Anyone know where I can get a nice, heavy axe handle uptown?

whats with the position as a traffic guard or crossing guard or whatever? i'm assuming there's a hierarchy here because some of the guards really take charge in the street, scream and yell at cars, while others just stand on the side and don't do a damn thing.

i may as well vent now that i've found this thread. fairway on the weekend is a nightmare and i would advise avoiding this place at all costs because all of murray hill and kips bay is in there on saturday and sunday afternoon

You are going to fairway at the wrong time. It is best after dinner time.

i was in new york last week and i enjoyed seeing a man enter the f train at 2:00 pm screaming about how high he was and proceed to try to hump a handpole while yelling 'oh baby' until a disheveled homeless woman with a septic looking cast started yelling at him in gibberish

also $18 hotel oatmeal and $20 card minimums at bars

It does seem to be getting a little crazier out there. There is now a begger on every corner in Midtown, for instance.

This is even better than the principal story.
Quote:
For a classic study of the “Tale of Two Cities,” Mayor de Blasio should visit the Queens Central Library.

Patrons of that dilapidated two-story building on Merrick Blvd. in Jamaica have faced years of unending construction and diminished services.

But that didn’t stop library President Thomas Galante from spending $140,000 last year to renovate his offices on the building’s second floor. Galante managed this after eliminating nearly 130 library jobs through layoffs and attrition over the past five years.
Quote:
And that’s on top of Galante’s eye-popping salary last year of $391,594 — an increase of $12,000 from the previous year.

Some might ask: Why is the director of a borough library system, one that’s always menaced by budget cuts, paid more than the mayor ($225,000), the schools chancellor ($220,000) or the MTA chairman ($350,000)?
