LAST GASP: And Now A Word From Jimmy Van Bramer

It has come to my attention that a number of my friends across the creek (READ: Long Island City and Sunnyside) want to know how they can lend a hand to those who need it. As you can see, Mr. Van Bramer is on it.

Vollies/Drivers Needed
Saturday, November 3rd 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Monday, November 5th – Friday, November 9th 9:00 a,m, – 6:00 p.m.
City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer’s Office
47-01 Queens Boulevard, Suite 205
Sunnyside, Queens 11104 

G Is For…

Gee, where the hell is it?

The above-depicted is a map the MTA has issued apprising its patrons of subway service slated to be restored tomorrow, November 1st, 2012. As you can see our beloved Crosstown Local is, um, MIA. Or would that be MII (Missing In Inaction)? In any case, those of you who have been enjoying a furlough from your daily commute (and want to forward it to your supervisors) can grab the link for this map by clicking here.*

UPDATE, 7:25 p.m.: Here’s a Service Alert from the ever awesome Chair of Community Board 1’s Transportation Committee.

Thanks Willie!

UPDATE, 11:32 p.m.: I cannot believe I forgot that the East River Ferry will be resuming service tomorrow as well! You can view their schedule by clicking here.

 

*Props go out to the incomparable Bitchcakes for bringing this to my attention. Thanks!

Hello Miss Heather,
Hope you’re safe and all that. Wanted to share a Greenpoint Sandy photo. I am fortunate enough to live on Dupont St. and have a great skyline view. Here’s what I just shared on my instagram/facebook:

A bright rainbow appears in front of the NYC Skyline after Sandy’s worst. I love my view, I LOVE THIS TOWN #nyc #sandy #greenpoint #rainbowconnection

Hope you like it and share it… Stay safe and warm and all that crap!

Outstanding shot, Max— thank you so much for passing it along!

From The New York Shitty Inbox: A Dispatch From 400 McGuinness

As I indicated in an update on this post this “open house” was not, in fact, open to the general public. The reason for this given was (presumably to those who were turned away) that the email I received was incorrect and this was by invitation only. Go figure.

In any case, I know someone who was invited and she was kind enough to tell me a little about what came to pass. A lady named Laura writes:

Hi Heather!
I couldn’t attend the open house, but Mike did. The “open house” was not open to the public. It was by invitation only. Mike took notice that only two elected officials were represented at this open house.  Rami (Metal, Community Liaison for our City Councilman — Ed Note) attended for Steve Levin. And of course Lincoln (Restler — Ed. Note) attended.  No other elected officials attended or were represented. If it hadn’t been for Rami and Lincoln talking to the director, the people who showed up  wouldn’t have been able to get in. That’s including the local business owners. So they aren’t being community inclusive at all. In fact, since Meredith Hoffmann from DNAinfo was late, and didn’t have Lincoln or Rami with her, she couldn’t get in. She was waiting outside when the tour was over.

The things that stuck out to Mike were that this will be on average, a 21 day assessment facility, where clients come after they’ve been to the 30th & 1st intake center. After 21 days of being at 400 McGuiness, clients will be place in permanent shelters. There will be shuttle buses running for clients that will let them off at 21st in LIC, as to not “impact” the community. There will be an advisory board which folks can become part of, only by calling the main #(212) 803-5700 at BRC. You can provide your name and need to make reference to 400 McGuiness. Attached are the handouts that Mike received.
