    In the L train it is almost daily. I have even seen two different groups of dancers in one trip. I mean they are really good, but it is just aggravating after a day of work when you just want to get the hell home and chill out.

    i haven't seen any in a while. i think that's because service has been cut enough that the trains are too crowded for backflips now.

    Seems only fair if people insist on walking on the roads.

    It looks like there are tracks coming off the sidewalk already, suggesting that he wasn't the first one to drive up on the sidewalk.

    Thanks for the invite TFTI[​IMG]

    Agreed. Getting home last night was a nightmare. Pretty much none of the sidewalks were shoveled yet and there were no cabs in sight. Car service line was consistently busy.

    Manhattan is totally not plowed. I mean, Park in the 50s. Really, people? I have never seen this, ever, in 20-odd years either living here or visiting here. My little flyspeck village in W'chester is spotless and Midtown East looks like Siberia.

    I can only speak of the one department where someone I know was the commissioner. DiBlasio had no transition team. None. In the months before the changeover, no one from the administration-to-be reached out to anyone of the senior staff to tell them what the plans were for the department or whether they would have jobs. So everyone who could get a job in the private sector did and left. This person could not, in good conscience ask anyone to stay. And these are not high level jobs necessarily. Just not permanent union staff and are technically political appointees but (not counting the commissioner) non-partisan career bureaucrat types.
    Who knows what went on at the DOT

    That is inexcusable.
