New York Shitty Videos Du Jour: Live From The B62

To preface: Today yours truly decided a walk across the Williamsburg Bridge (this is one of my favorite leisure time activities) was in order. Since I was running late I decided to take the B62 bus to the Southside in order to make up for lost time. It didn’t exactly work out that way. In my guesstimation my travel time (from Greenpoint Avenue) was one hour. How did this happen, you ask? Read on and find out!

Let me explain to you, dear readers, what you have just watched. Our intrepid bus driver, frustrated that a motorist elected to parallel park in front of his vehicle in a manner which precluded him from performing his duty (READ: driving)— and upon discovering honking his horn was useless— prevailed upon a police officer for help. First, I’ll tender the good news: our finest prevailed! And now the bad news…

Clearly displeased with the outcome of this exchange our motorist (being insane, an asshole or some combination thereof) decided running to the next bus stop and resuming (t)his altercation was in order. If you listen very carefully at the end he says (and I quote):

You want to kill me? You want to kill me? Let’s do it!

The next time you, gentle readers, get angry at a member of our Transit Authority for being gruff or downright rude I want to think about what you have just watched. I for one commend this bus driver’s restraint. I for one cannot fathom what it would be like to deal with this shit every day.

I suspect I speak for a number of my fellow mass transit patrons this afternoon when I write I had the utmost desire to take this fellow up on his offer. In closing, I would like to humbly suggest— moving forward— that if/when this chap wants a fight he should stick his head up his ass and fight for air. The rest of us have lives.

P.S.: If anyone from the M.T.A. is reading this give this bus driver a raise. Yesterday. He is an absolute prince— and I told him so!

Hi there —

Wanted to pass along some info about the homeless encampment that is starting to stink up the 5 block radius around it – I reported it to 311 and it turns out our police precinct seems to think it’s not under their jurisdiction to disband it. I’ve called the Department of Homeless Services and it seems that are also aware of the problem but have not done anything about it yet. Meanwhile the homeless guys have a BBQ, mattresses, and just tons and tons of shit piling up around there. They’ve been collecting stuff there for months now. It’s getting really disgusting. You should take a walk by there and check it out. Spread awareness and maybe if enough people complain the police or the homeless dept will get them some help. It’s really sad.

Thanks!

This afternoon I went to see this myself. The following photos and video footage pretty much say it all.

(speechless)

LAST GASP: Lost & Found

Deputy Inspector Hurson of the 94th Precinct writes this evening at 10:08 p.m.:

Thanks for posting the picture of the bike however no luck yet finding the owner. FYI my cops found Roger the dog last night he was happily reunited with his owner today.

Spread the word!

New York Shitty Day Starter: A Request From The Head of the 94th Precinct

D.I. Hurson writes (on May 16th):

Today we arrested someone in the act of stealing a bicycle (which is as easy as finding a needle in a haystack). The problem is we can not find the owner. Could you post a picture on your blog to help identify the owner? The bicycle was stolen from Leonard and Greenpoint today.

Done! If this bike belongs to you— or you know to whom it does belong— please swing by the 94th or give them a ring at (718) 383-3879.

Live From The 94th Precinct Community Council Meeting

All in all the proceedings at last night’s convocation were pretty subdued. However there were a few points of interest, among them:

  1. A bevy of guest speakers, including a trio of wonderfully charming participants of the NYPD’s Explorers program speak.
  2. A pair of gentleman who were burglarizing our local watering holes in the wee hours of the morning have been apprehended!
  3. Phyllis, a stalwart attendee of these proceedings, tenders her two cents (and then some) regarding what I presume to be a meter maid.

Without further ado, here we go!

Part I: Roll Call & a Review of Minutes From the Previous Meeting

Part II: Minutes are accepted, the new date for Community Council meetings is announced; a representative from the NYPD’s Community Affairs Office speaks

Part III: A Presentation by the Explorer’s Program

  • You can view the brochure for this program by clicking here.

Part IV: A citizen lauds these youths for cleaning Jerzy Popieluzko Square (this is pretty awesome)

Part V: A representative from the Youth Court speaks & D.I. Hurson gives a rundown of recent crime trends

  • Crime was up for the month of February. Mr. Hurson attributes this to unseasonably warm weather.
  • Burglaries are still a problem. He states that two men responsible for a string of burglaries at bars in his precinct have been identified/apprehended. Simply put, these two men were breaking into bars after hours. One was caught at Bellwether on Union Avenue.
  • Street robberies (for electronics) is still a concern. Recently a rash of these came to pass on Roebling Street between North 8 and North 4 Street. The perpetrators are between the ages of 14 and 18 years of age and one young woman has been arrested.
  • Car break-ins are still a concern as well.

Part VI: The Q & A Session Continues

  • Phyllis tenders some remarks regarding one Officer Brown and truck drivers. Among other things she asserts Ms. Brown is overweight. D.I. Hurson begs to differ.
  • Concerns about the Production Lounge are raised (again).

Part VII: Q & A Session, Continued

  • Concerns about registered sex offenders (and posting flyers of them) are raised.
  • D.I. Hurson notes that many hail from 300 Skillman Avenue (a homeless shelter located on the premises of the Greenpoint Hospital) and 66-68 Clay Street (a three quarter house)

And that’s all she wrote!
