On the one hand, picking on typos is bush league. But a DMX bike sounds legitimately amazing. LORD GIMME A SIGN
In addition to the MTA picking up the tab for accelerating the bike share program into Greenpoint (because of the repair work that will put the G train out of commission), they should also pick up the tab for folks who live and/or work in Greenpoint who will need to use the Citi Bikes...just sayin'
These are all great small companies! I have tried most of these thanks to monthly tasting boxes from knoshbox, check them out here: http://www.knoshbox.com
Rum might become more popular if people were better acquainted with rum made from sugar cane, rather than the more commonly sold molasses-based rums.
Wow, every individual aspect of this story is so so shitty. Boo, Applebee's.
Funny post, and I'm a fan of Mike D, but I didn't share your interpretation. Think you're reading too much into it. The reporter did quote Mike in one his humorous Mike moments, as he referred to himself as a "multi-dad" after apparently searching to find the words "multi-tasking dad".
I wish your publication and other online publications would actually spend the effort used to write a snarky post like this and do some original reporting...
Mike D tried doing something really nice in Rockaway by helping people out a few weeks after the storm...but it was kind of a dickhead move to drive around his brand new Mercedes SLS AMG while he did it.
Mike D also tried to do something nice when he bought a food truck for the charity Waves for Water to give out free food to people who need it...but it was kind of a dickhead move when the truck just sat there all winter in the same fenced off location doing nothing when people in the area needed it most.
The last two. Ah!
Yes. Please keep books away from any suggestion of fire. Put them on a bookshelf. Get an antler bookshelf. I don't care. And keep the spines out. You're not an animal.
I'm also sensitive to religious items. The Native American trend is so overwhelming, and overwhelmingly offensive. I could go on forever about that, though.
Otherwise... I don't know. I like antlers and skins and mounted busts. My dad is a hunter and I think for us it was always more of a way to keep that animal with us. "This deer fed our family for this long. Appreciate it." But I can sympathize with the author.
Life goes on, guys. To those complaining about the author being too bitchy, you'll forget about this article in less than a week. Don't let it bother you so much.
Actually, Times profiles always include the subjects' ages, so if they decline, the Times has to explain why. No dickishness implied.
thats cool but other people do this cheaper for like $12. thats how much nycbeachbus charges for the same thing. why spend more?
Solange I love ur style girl... I'm feeling u... Big Hugs
I suspect their clientele is year-round residents, not seasonal visitors. The people who live in Coney Island are mostly poor and lower middle class. An Applebee's will provide them with a year-round dining choice they didn't have before, just like the locations they've put at the Junction, downtown at Flatbush & DeKalb and in Atlantic Terminal, and Restoration Plaza. It's on the street, not the boardwalk, and will be open all year round. They're aiming at a community underserved by fast-casual restaurants, as can be seen by their sponsorship of events like the Martin Luther King Jr. Concert Series at Winthrop Field. As a vegetarian, I don't eat there, but I bet their demographic survey of the community led them to believe they'll be successful there. And Applebee's is a superior experience to another Burger King, McDonald's, Wendy's, etc. for people with limited funds.
Email RentInfo@nyshcr.org with the name of the person named on the lease, your address and apartment number in order to have the rent history mailed directly to your house.
Also, the article's headline mistakes rent-control for rent-stabilization. Not nearly as many rent-controlled apartments remain. http://www.housingnyc.com/html/resources/faq/rentstab.html
This is a decent start, but you need to include the procedures involved with obtaining said rent history (hint: it's easy, but you still need to provide certain info). It would also be helpful to include a guide detailing the translation of the rent history entries, specifically in terms of why the "rent controlled" portion might be blank, why the formerly controlled tenant may have the same last name as the landlord (!), legitimate increases for vacancy leases, ascertaining whether your apartment really reflects $15,000 of recent cosmetic repairs to justify what appears to be a hefty increase recorded the year before, legitimate improvement increases based on building size or common area maintenance, where to find previous year RCB guidelines to calculate proper increases, and the rules pertaining to "preferential rent."
Just as online accessibility allows us to be more informed than ever about tenant rights, the same convenience encourages NYC-bound transplants who never would have considered doing so 10-20 years ago. Unfortunately a lot of these people might not be bothered to research and correct rent history, since they don't plan on sticking around for the long haul and perhaps are under the impression they'll create "trouble" in their short-term situation. Such complacency is bad for the longtime neighborhood residents as well as those who come afterward.
why didn't you just link to the list?
It may not even be in your lease! I'm a realtor in NYC with Fenwick Keats. Private message me if you need more information on finding out your legal rights as a renter!
Can I get a shout out for the Frozen Dark n' Stormy at Battery Harris? So delicious!
There're Citibike kiosks near Foodtown on Bedford, Broadway and Berry, & Wythe and S 3rd. In case anyone wants to give it a go.
