East Village Bars Ban together for Eric Pagan college fund 1010 wins

Suzannah B. Troy eating corn soup at Cara Cas, her thoughts on food and men that offer to be her "cougar bait"

Hi, I am now 47 years old and I have guys in their twenties offering to be my "cougar bait". Fascinating. They don't look like Ashton Kuscher. I would love to be able to do what ever Demi Moore does because she has had all these kids and there is no way you can give birth to that many kids and look the way she does naturally. The cougar bait offerings are fun to ponder but the reality of spending time with a guy in his 20's just ridiculous unless I gave birth to him. There is one cougar bait guy on YouTube that did get me excited but it is fun to just ponder. No thanks to the reality of guys in their twenties now that I am getting thisclose to 50. I do like younger men, just not young enough to be my son. I don't have a son. Older man are out and guys in their twenties are now out. No to married men, guys with girlfriends and or boyfriends and guys that are all of the above. NYC is a weird place and there are a lot of gay men as well which would be fine if I was a gay man but I am not. Right now my YouTube audience is hugely male and I have stats on the age groups of the male watchers...interesting.

I am not in to starving myself. I love eating food, sundaes at Noho Star with a fortune cookie on top no nuts and Cadbury chocolate bars big time.
Here I am at Cara Cas where I had their lunch special which includes a delicious corn soup and Arepa.

Patrick Barr NYC Street Photographer



I collect Patrick's photos and added three more two my series today. I have a YouTube series on Patrick Barr as well. I am too tired to add all the links but go to YouTube and type in Patrick Barr Suzannahartist.

Sink Hole Forsyth and Stanton Street North East Corner very deep -- see pipe exposed



DM2009242004 I called it in today and was informed it was called in yesterday and DOT has 30 days to fix it. It is much wider and much deeper than it appears.

Chelsea Now, The Villager's sister paper makes a piece with Christine Quinn MIA City Council Task Force meeting to DOB disappear

The photo above is by Jefferson Siegel and I am wearing a hand painted protest shirt about a reckless, dangerous tsunami that is crushing our communities city wide.


I talked about too many construction workers dieing. Who knew the deaths of construction workers and civilians would increase. Christine Quinn did not attend.

Just like The Villager in league with NYU turning away NY1 and other press, seniors citizens that stood patiently in line, John Air Space Sutter is at it again and tell me this.

Is John Air Space Sutter, the owner of Chelsea Now and The Villager, is he the man that sold air space to Donald Trump at Spring and Varrick and a construction worker died there?

No wonder he has his thugs pulling these pieces and making pictures disappear. The Villager was accused along with NYU of making sure Christine got preferential treatment to stack the audience with her supporters including her campaign staff that the Village Voice reports happens to be made up of over 30 percent of her City Council staff.

Under Bloomberg a lot has disappeared and it is not just homeless people being given one way tickets out of here.

Built-up complaints come pouring out

... Suzannah B. Troy of the East Village, declared, “Gentrification has become supersizification!” and also complained about dangerous scaffolding. ...

See my letter in The NY Daily News "Body Bag Boom"
and at the meeting above that Quinn-less -- I believe I also talked about infrastructure concerns and I followed up with letters to James Oddo and other city council members plus Betsy Gotbaum. I did get a response from Betsy Gotbaum.

Bronx: So a man spent 16 years in prison because former Westchester County District Attorney Jeanine Pirro refused to retest the DNA evidence that eventually cleared him. Pirro should now be made to spend 16 years in prison. That's the only way justice will be served.

Street Zaps is a big hit especially in New York where people like Jodi Lane of the East Village died and pets have died or been injuried

http://www.streetzaps.com/

I learned about Street Zaps tonight on Channel 11 and they showed a photo of Jodi Lane.

Rescue 1 YouTube. I had a letter published in The NY Times asking for a sizable raise for the NYPD and FDNY. Here is Rescue 1 working very hard.

Charlie Parker Festival jam packed, have video, too tired to post on YouTube right now

Nice tatts and watch...


The turn out was huge and very peaceful. People were very well behaved and respectful and the music was very good.

Edgar says drinking is his prison




The 9th Precinct was very kind to Edgar last night. He was so drunk they did not ticket him but sent him to the hospital. The NYPD were being kind because Karl had told me of being handcuffed to the bed at the hospital when he was not as lucky as Edgar.

Edgar studied the mind and was a psychoanalyst. He made the mistake of falling in to drinking and it has destroyed his life. Yesterday he had just gotten out of rehab. His hands and feet are swollen so I fear he has a systemic infection. He is a good and kind man.

I talk to him about my life. He is fully updated. He likes Mike Bloomberg and I don't.

Edgars eye's sometimes sparkle with beautiful colors that make me think of the Van Gogh portraits at the Met Museum.

Gave Marlene the update on Lincoln Anderson's false accusations and yes she does want Bob Arihood to take down the photo


Marlene does want the topless photo taken down. I told her about what Lincoln Anderson did to me and his false accusations of both me and her. I described Lincoln Anderson as a tall, white, fat and bald man hoping she can identify him and tell him off.

She has given Bob permission to take photos of her but she was drunk and surprise she actually does have family and friends and Marlene prefers he take it down. She has been through a lot and she struggles a lot. You note there are no photos of Bob Arihood any where. Why is that dear rocket scientists? The misogynist club has their local meetings at Tompkins Square Park so look out women be on your guard -- you get trashed, exploited and dumped on and no deep thinkers around asking "Why? Why would you say that? Why do you do that? etc. If there were cops that were part of this club just standing there hanging out with Bob, there clearly are not Jack Maples and they don't ask questions.


Hey rocket scientists, he never got to first base with me but once on the street he planted a big wet kiss on my cheek just like Karl did in the ambulance before they took him away. Do you think I liked it?


Marlene asked me to please go take some photos of Bob Arihood and I said no! I said funny Marlene but Bob has a lot of photos of us but we don't have any of him. I don't want any. Hey rocket scientists, not Jack Maple or Sherlock Holmes, why would she ask me to do that. Why would I say no, Marlene, I won't take a photo of Bob? Guess those penetrating questions never popped up when the boys have their conversations.

I did warn Marlene that Bob Arihood and Lincoln Anderson have done "not nice things" and yet they accuse us of so be careful.

I told her please be careful. Try not to drink. Try to stay sober. There are mean men in Tompkins Square Park that will try to take advantage of you and the general consensus is Bob's photo of you topless when you were drunk was not appropriate and that is understating it. I told her Lincoln Anderson and Bob Arihood decided I must have "no life" to actual care about her being exploited that way on the world wide web.

As for the undercover cops that hang out with Bob, if the rumors are true, and you stand there and listen to Bob's great insights -- you guys are "not Jack Maples or Sherlocks". I would be happy to go with Marlene, the NYPD at Bob's invitation to show you his apt. with many photos of Marlene and me. Bob used to take some powerful photos but now his photos lack compassion and humanity. He listens to the police scanner and runs to crimes scenes. Yes, Bob has done some important photo coverage on the community but less and less.

Bob was a "big time admirer of me" you rocket scientists! He invited me to his apt. He gave me a photo to give to my Dad. My parents don't talk but the agreed I should stay far away from him. Why? Hmm, Anderson after disparaging, insulting and falsely accusing me ends his series of emails admitting he admires me too but it is sure hard to believe based on his actions.

It is a no brainer. I did ask for his help based on his great admiration of me but just like Marlene, we know Bob takes a lot of photos but don't expect anything in return. He just wants what he wants and it doesn't involve giving.

Yes, Bob has taken many photos of Marlene and the large one hanging up that greets you when you enter his apt. is quiet beautiful. He has never even offered to buy her a meal once. I am sure Marlene would like some copies of his many photos of her and for him to buy her some meals like I do from time to time. Bob and Lincoln accuse me and Marlene of wanting to extort money from him. I never suggested to her to ask him for money. Marlene is one of many people that will ask anybody for money and in my mail box I am asked for money from the Met Museum, Met Opera, Lincoln Center, PAL, Botanical Garden -- thanks to Lincoln and Bob for explaining that is called extortion. Marlene is poor and she has problems. The guys has more photos of her than you could imagine. You would he think he would offer her money, food, smokes, not accuse of her of extortion along with email according to the high volume of emails I got from Anderson on Villager email.

I do take photos of her from time to time on my Iphone or camera -- nothing fancy and I don't have any goals towards a gallery or a book of photos. I just give you updates like she is a Henry Settlement House right now. She came up to me tonight to tell me the women's bathroom in the park smelled so bad...she made me laugh. I bought her dinner and took these photos.

I told Marlene if The Villager was a real newspaper and Lincoln Anderson sent me that high volume of emails after I told him to stop emailing me, it is harassment, he would have been fired. Hey it's The Villager.

FYI: Lincoln Anderson picked the most unattractive photo of me protesting Mike Bloomberg he could find of Lorcan's (Lorcan spells my name wrong but here are the photos of my one woman protest of Mike Bloomberg only to be confronted by "non-counter culture Cooper Union Art students that are pro-community crushing development that exploits our neighborhood and causes displacement. http://www.flickr.com/search/?w=15219204%40N00&q=Susannah&m=text Note: I continue to express concerns for the community's safety because Cooper Union continues to supersize, zone bust by the Astor Place Subway stations that are rotted and leaking and for my over achievers -- Cooper Union owns the property that the sky piercing hideous mirrored by the black cube and is about to tear down the little yellow science building and supersize. Neither building has anything to do with higher education but about real estate greed and zero respect for our community. Guiliani's city planner refused to okay tearing down Cooper Union's yellow science building to supersize and lease it for 99 years. I am told he said it was a "shell game". You won't see any arrests but it sure feels like corrupt wheelings and dealings and like higher ed is using it's status like one big tax shelter to exploit our community, ditto for Columbia U. and it's abuse of eminent domain but don't expect and exposes from any newspapers. Hmmm, I wonder why?


The Villager's sister paper -- Chelsea News made the City Council Task forcing meeting on DOB where I rocked the house completely disappear and the photo of me is gone in The Villager post. See the link below to learn more on that. Lincoln made some photos of me in The Villager & Chelsea disappear on line -- the photo told an important story about the community crushing development that was way too rapid to be safe or smart, clearly favoring developers at the expense of the community. Also interesting was Christine Quinn was too busy to attend the meeting where I talked about too many construction workers dieing. That was before the numbers escalated and we saw horrific crane accidents as well so again it looks like the Chelsea News completely making the piece disappear is more dirty work on behalf of Christine Quinn since she did not attend a meeting she should have.


Gee, I wonder how often Lincoln and Bob have gone over photos of me and Marlene. It sure seems like Lincoln and Bob have gone through a lot of photos of me and Marlene and yet they have a fantasy we are obsessed with them.


How many times have Marlene and I looked over photos of Bob Arhiood and Lincoln Anderson? Zero times.

Gee, Bob's site is dedicated to Jim but how many times did I give him updates on Jim and he actually took the same photo of mine of Cooper Union kicking Jim's art to the curb and covering Jim's breaking his wrist and shoulder....You are welcome.

I think of John Berger's Ways of Seeing and how he describes the male gaze. I make fun of it all the time on YouTube but about one percent of my audience actually gets it.



Folks, don't ask questions. Don't think. Reminds me of "Harrison Bergeron" from Kurt Vonnegut book of short stories "Welcome to the Monkey House". He was a genius.

TV is truly doing the job. People just sit there and they don't think or ask questions.


Vote Sept. 15 in the Primary, if you are out of town call the Board of Elections

Board of Elections

hit zero and ask the operator for assistance,
make sure to get an absentee ballot if you are away!
Read the dishonor role of shame and vote these politicos that flushed democracy down the toilet out.

Mike Bloomberg, Christine Quinn and city council had to know there was an investigation which is on going in to city council members and their staff and therefore votes are tainted.
They had no right to deny us a referendum.

Bill's bad behavior not quite behind him This wins the award for most vulgar window in the East Village for the month of August!

Note the reflection of the beautiful church in the window.

For a closer inspection go to my other blog and actually click on the image or just walk by the store and see for yourself.

Gee, let me rewind, wasn't that when President Bill Clinton lead on a younger woman, much younger as in intern and than was exposed so he blamed the victim and accused her of stalking him!!!!! Nice! Bill set the Guinness World's record for telling a bold face lie on news to a global audience!

Boys will be boys....Anyway just shows that Bill will never escape being associated with one act that was not quite Presidential.

Note: Misogynist 101: On a very sad note sex or no sex what so ever (just wishful thinking), there are really abusive men (and females pals) that attempt to exploit and victimize women and blame them for their own misdeeds. It can be trashing them, harassment, false accusations to violence to rape and murder.

He loves Yetta!!!!!!!!!

Sept. 15 is the Primary folks, time to get out and vote!!!!! Get all your friends in the West Village--Chelsea area to Vote for YETTA!!!!!!!!

81 Bowery, I was sent this by a community activist & was not able to post in time for press conference


Background on 81 Bowery:
On Thursday, November 13, 2008, more than 50 tenants were vacated from their homes at 81 Bowery, a long-time SRO building located in the heart of Chinatown. The tenants, all of whom are low-income Chinese residents, received little advance notice from the City – most of them only knew they had to immediately vacate the building when NYPD officers showed up at 6 p.m. The City had determined that the fourth floor of the building, which houses the SRO, was posing an “imminent danger to the life and safety of the occupants” because of two fire code violations. Told initially by the City that they needed to go to a homeless shelter or find their own housing, most of the residents were then given temporary housing in the Bronx provided by New York City’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development.

The landlord of 81 Bowery has attempted to evict the tenants from the SRO many times over the past decade, and the Chinatown Tenants Union along with MFY Legal Services has been working with the 81 Bowery tenants since 2005. In June of 2008, tenants won a victory in court when a judge issued a ruling stating that they have a legal right to remain in their homes.

What happened at 81 Bowery is only one instance of landlords in Chinatown forcing tenants to live in unsafe conditions and putting their lives and homes in danger. Landlord neglect is an intentional tactic used by landlords to force tenants to move out – whether by “choice” or because the City decides that the building is unsafe for habitation. As Chinatown continues to rapidly gentrify, even during this economic recession, we anticipate that more and more landlords will use this tool to kick out more low-income tenants. The fight over 81 Bowery is not just about this one building – it’s about all tenants in Chinatown asserting their right to live in safe conditions and their right to remain in their community!

Apple's sex offender locator App shows sex offenders live near Tompkins Square Park

The iphone has an App store, "app" is short for application and many are free or you can purchase app's for a small fee. The are games, resources, etc.

There is an app to locate sex offenders. I did not down load it but a friend of mine did and he told me the sex offender app shows there are many sex offenders living close by Tompkins Square Park. It even appeared to him to be an entire building (or several I am told) of sex offenders. According to this free App my friend looked at there are a lot of sex offenders in the area.

We have three children's playgrounds in Tompkins.

Bottom line, hold your children close by you and do not let them out of your sight!

We have been having a baby boom in NYC ever since Sept. 11 and even the gay books stores in the West Village went out of business and are now maternity shops.

You don't need a sex offender app to know to hold your children's hands and do not let them out of your site or place them in the care of people that don't have references.

As far as I am concerned if Woody Allen did what he did anywhere else in the USA other than NYC or LA, he would be on the list.


Note: The are two sex offender APPs, one is free and one isn't and both have the sex offenders photos and addresses.

Norman Siegel for Public Advocate

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sb-mxXr3qW8
My interview with Norman Siegel on the steps of William Kunstler's townhouse. I ask him, "Norman, why do we need a public adovcate?".

FYI: I met Norman Siegel at the protest for the People's Firehouse, Engine 212 and I reached out to him when I started postering the community with my Mayor Bloomberg King of New York, Is Democracy for Sale?, NO Third Term poster. I had called community affairs, NYPD and I was told correct and accurate information by the NYPD but I needed to go over some more details. Norman Siegel is already the people's advocate and I want him in office officially for the people of New York City!

John Liu, Lower East Side, breaking the law. Don't worry John, I got word that Bill DeBlasio also broke the law and I caught David Yassky's volunteer breaking the law in the East Village. I made a YouTube about it and I am sure you attended the meeting of where I follow the young man to in the East Village. Come on, you know the law. This is not your first campaign. Thanks to Queens Crap for reporting the news. http://queenscrap.blogspot.com/2009/08/johnnys-gotten-himself-into-fine-mess.html

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cGnj16cIu4o



Note: Jason G. praises me at the end of this YouTube and I found that particularly touching after the long series of emails I was sent by Lincoln Anderson where he speaks for himself and Bob Arihood accusing me of many things that gee, it seems they are guilty of. Thanks Jason for your positive words.

Below is the first YouTube Jason and I made together. It was his idea to create these YouTubes and we have received a lot of praise for our first YouTube. He is a voice for the many that have been displaced in this community crushing development that under Bloomberg has been so shocking I renamed "gentrification" supersification.

Cooper Square Committee were truly a heroic group of activists that came through and thanks to their hard work Jason and his family will remain here on the Lower East Side but you can imagine what it must be like to move after 30 years. Jason is 30. He was born here and lived in the same building his entire life.

Lt. Petrosino NYPD & American Hero honored in the window of The Italian American Museum




http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Petrosino

http://italophiles.com/petrosino.htm
The link directly above about Lt. Petrosino is outstanding!


A park dedicated to this ground breaking and brave Lt. who was the first NYPD officer to die over seas in the line of duty taking on the Black Hand --- early name for the Mafia is honored in the window of The Italian American Museum in Little Italy.

Lt. Petrosino has many admirers including me. I wanted the little park dedicated to him that is being renovated to include a link to The New York Police Museum and the Parks Dept. fellow I had spoken with way back when just told me to tape it up to the sign. I didn't do that.

He told me that there is a club dedicated to his memory. If you go down to the NYPD Memorial you can see Lt. Petrosino's name inscribed on the memorial which is a very long list of very brave police officers that have died in the line of duty.


Anyone who follows my blog knows I love Jack Maple and Lt. Joseph Petrosino. I am fascinated by the mosaic of people that make up New York City, the good guys and the bad guys. These are two of my favorite good guys in the NYPD.

They are two examples of men that were highly motivated NYPD officers.

If Lt. Petrosino had survived I imagine he would have become police commissioner.

When I met Anne she had a business partner who was very kind and generous to me. All our lives would dramatically change as did so many New Yorkers with this tsunami of community crushing development.

DOT approved speed bumps for Anna Silver School

I was deeply moved by Alfredo Felicano's passionate plea for speed bumps at Community Board 3 aka "community bar" and zero was done. I was at a community meeting that was not a community board meeting and Alfredo brought up the issue of needing speed bumps yet again.


I tracked him down at the Children's Magical Garden the next day. I had him draw a map. I called up DOT. I made sure there were no bus routes a long the streets and I noted all the other schools I walked past below Houston had speed bumps but these 2 schools! http://newyork.timeout.com/make-music/venues/lower-east-side/37483/childrens-magical-garden You can see the area on this map and Alfredo is the driving force behind the garden which is nestled between these two schools. I just spoke to Alfredo and we are going to celebrate very soon!!!!!!!! I can't wait to hand him a copy of this letter!!!!

I just got a call from Mr. White that my letter had come back stamped no forwarding address and he did resend it but it is the USPS so I just got it tonight and here is the great news.

I am making a YouTube right now about it.

Just so you know a public member of community board 3 told me "You will never get those speed bumps." He looked down his nose at me with arrogance and I am delighted to be proving him wrong but even more so I am at peace because I have helped the community to be a little bit safer for children. My maternal Grandfather was born around the corner a few blocks away in a tenement house in 1904. He later moved to the Bronx and worked for the USPS delivering mail in the Bronx.

I think Gramps and Grams are smiling down at me quite pleased!

I LOVE YOU DOT!!!!!!!! I want to hug and kiss Margaret Forgione and Mr. White. You have made me so happy!!!!! Thanks and gratitude with New York Attitude!!!!!!!!!

Emailed this via 311: Highest praise for DOT, for Borough Commissioner Margaret Forgione and also for Mr. White from DOT who gets the highest praise from me because when the letter from Ms. Forgione was returned no forwarding address Mr. White called me. I love children. It is the greatest joy on the planet for me to know the children of PS 25 and Anna Silver school will now be even safer because DOT approved speed bumps. Man Log 9204 Thanks and gratitude, Suzannah B. Troy please forward to DOT Ms. Sadik-Kahn, Ms. Forgione and Mr. White

Reminder, listen to Suzannah B. Troy on Crotch Shot Radio on Mike Bloomberg and corruption City Hall 2 hours long & vote Sept. 15 to oust his puppets

Jim Power and Jesse on a rainy day clearly in need of help

I keep getting email via YouTube praising what I did for Jim Mosaic Man Power and Jesse Jane when Jim fell and broke his wrist and shoulder. Jim called me for help and I did by hiring a car and driving out, talking with the EMS workers, his landlord and taking Jesse Jane not the porn star but hero service dog to Jim over to Clayton Patterson and Elsa Reynsa's. Jim had than called me from the hospital in Brooklyn and asked me to get a car to pick him and take him to the VA hospital. That took a very long time and was a fiasco because Jim gave me the wrong street name. Than Jim had a fellow patient call me and ask me to put money on Jim's phone. I did. I put $50 dollars on his phone and he would call me one minute and tell me I was a hero and the next demonize me and gee I was paying for that!

Clayton and Elsa were his heroes and they have been so for a very long time. Clayton and Elsa are rare New Yorkers that actually would take Jim and Jesse Jane in. Not many people take a homeless man and his dog in. I do know George Bliss of Hub Station took in a homeless man Ben who lived with him and his girlfriend in a commune George had across from my windows so many years ago on 12th Street. I was in love with George's dog Orvis! Orvis looks like Jesse but mostly he was all black with longer hair.

Jim's phone call became abusive and I told him to stop calling me. His lawyer did call me asking me to help Jim sue the landlord. I told the lawyer I made YouTubes as they were happening that would give him the dates Jim needed but I told the lawyer the landlord was an exceptionally kind man who helped me to help Jim who was screaming in pain. The landlord was extremely kind to Jim and also noted what an exceptional dog Jesse is. My Mom calls Jesse the "golden dog". Note: Jim's landlord was in the process of evicting Jim's roommate but Jim was in dire straits so he gave Jim a month longer to stay.

Jim is so talented and prolific so why is he still on the street? Where is Jim's family? After the way Jim treated me, Clayton and Elsa, I think I know the answer and understand the answer.

I had read "The Soloist". I won't see the movie, too Hollywood, but it tells the story of Nathaniel Anthony Ayers, Jr. I write about Jim and make YouTubes about him which I believe have inspired others to interview him, hire him and take an interest in him. I do not have the resources Steve Lopez had writing for The Los Angeles Times. He had so many people and organizations reach out to help me and it just doesn't seem to happen here. Yes, people write about him and photograph him but where is the help? Clayton arranged for an activist MD to help Jim and I called the VA hospital making it clear I was not a family member but he needs help.

I am proud that my YouTube series on Giuseppie Logan got world wide attention and instead of being robbed I was acknowledged in a stirring piece by the publisher of Signal to Noise, Pete Gershon's "Signal to Noise", "Coming out of the shadow" and now Giuseppie (in the 60's on record covers spelled Giuseppi) I am told will have his original albums from the '60's re-released next year. (Fingers crossed.)

Steve Lopez contacted Nathaniel's sister and lawyers and when he brokered the movie deal he set up a trust that would fund a foundation to help artists http://www.naayers.org/

When I saw Jesse in the rain earlier today I felt badly for her because she clearly suffers through the rough times and she truly is his spiritual seeing eye dog. I love Jesse Jane the golden dog.

If only Steve Lopez had been visiting NYC and wrote a series of pieces on Jim's art maybe there would be a book, film and foundation for him and to help other artists.

Note: When Jim was calling me and yelling at me, I was feverishly working on the portrait of Mike Bloomberg....seems ironic. See my other postings on Jim -- go to the blogger search engine and type his name.

My Bloomberg Poster King of New York No Third Term Is Democracy for Sale? makes a reappearance

I am deeply touched because this poster was up for a really long time. When I originally went in some men were getting coffee and asked if they could have a copy as well. The gentleman was convinced this was a significant poster and he wanted a copy. Than one day it was gone.

I am taking a rest but I will make more copies and place them up the beginning of Sept. I saw John Liu, who is running for Comptroller postered his campaign posters on lamposts which I am sure he knows is against the law. You won't see my posters on lamp posters.

I am touched because you can see my poster sustained some damage at the base but someone felt strongly enough about Bloomberg, they put my poster back up.

You can find my poster in windows from the Lower East Side like the Outlaw Art Musuem to Danal on 5th Avenue between 11 and 12th Street which really is courageous because most people have sold out to Bloomberg.

The primary is Sept. 15 and I am urging people to turn out to vote for Tony Avella for mayor, Norman Siegel for Public Advocate and anyone in the West Village and Chelsea vote Christine Quinn, Mike Bloomberg's puppet, aka Mike's mini-me or Mike Jr. out of office.

Vote Sept. 15 in the Primary, vote out Mike Bloomberg's puppets

Jack Maple's son emails me because of my YouTube on his Dad

I got an email via YouTube from Brendan Maple and he asked me if I knew his Dad because of my Youtube on Jack Maple. I told him I never met his Dad and how I came to find Jack Maple's book at The Strand. I emailed him that I keep Jack's book very close by to me and why. I even mention going out on *date with a retired Deputy Inspector and he tried to get me to give up my Jack Maple book to him and I said "No!".

I also have a book review on Amazon on Jack Maple who started in the transit division of the NYPD and because he was a stand out character with supersized passion about policing and the NYPD, he wrote William Bratton a long letter with ideas on how to improve the NYPD. Bratton took Maple from transit to Deputy Commissioner to assist him as Police Commish. Bratton was greatly impressed by Maple's mapping of crime which would evolve into Compstat.

I have this love for Maple even though I did not meet him. I clearly love Maple's drive and passion for catching criminals but you will never find me at Elaine's (where glitterati hang out) which was another of his fascinations I don't share. I met Denis Hamill for lunch to hear some first hand stories about Jack but Denis was distracted. I did get some Jack stories out of Hamill but I worked hard to get them. Denis seemed jealous of my admiration for Jack.

Of course the reporter responsible for really seeing the magic in Jack from the get go was and is Mike Daly who I have yet to meet but I listened to him speak at Capt. Pat Brown's memorial. I give you a link to just one article Daly wrote but he has written many pieces on Jack Maple.




* I had met him at a function and when very troubling events occurred in my life, I called him up and asked him out to talk about them and get his advice so it wasn't romantic.

Thanks for all your support regarding Lincoln Anderson's harassment of me last night. Also an article in Chelesa News gone missing

The piece that Lincoln Anderson said was 6 or more years ago was two years ago
http://www.thevillager.com/villager_198/veganaresckenedasfavorite.html in 2007 and I with much arm twisting I got Anderson to write an obituary on Filomna Silvestri after she died. Otherwise she would have been the invisible woman with the reporting by The Villager.

Click on the article up top about the rally to save Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen where I spoke up and Anderson's reporter erased me.
I called her a Vegan Earth Mom but, you will note, no where in the article did she, the owner and creator of Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen ever get mentioned. Anderson would not fix this error or erasing me. I was the only one who talked about Filomena Silvestri. She died at 94 knowing we the community fought and won a small victory, her store--her dream was not thrown out on the street. I thanked the community and Amy Zimmer from Metro for writing an article that I believed helped. I also demanded community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm starting with NYU that would help the community. These community outreach resource centers would include helping small businesses struggling to survive, seniors and even young people with free computers and tables to ask for volunteers.

It seems like The Villager is working for NYU. Why hasn't The Villager mentioned my demand for community outreach resource centers. I had met with Alicia Hurley and her staff prior to the rally and they admitted it was a great idea.


Why erase me. Anderson had forwarded me an email by the author of the piece. Who does she think she is? Is she running for office?

Maybe that was the real concern. Anderson could have mentioned it the week after as well since I made it clear I felt what they did was wrong.


This article has been pulled from the Chelsea Now or should I say deleted as John air space Sutter and Lincoln Anderson may again being trying to give a little help to Christine Quinn because she could not attend this city council task force meeting on DOB and I gave a stirring speech and where I addressed the fact too many construction workers dieing.
Here is the same piece in The Villager but they removed my picture by Jefferson Siegel. The photo is striking and I am wearing a hand painted protest shirt I made. Surprising the photo and article is gone from Chelsea News completely and in The Villager my photo is deleted.


I remember talking Lincoln Anderson after the meeting and I also told him about infrastructure concerns and he had no idea what I was talking about! Only later did he learn...sad stuff. I rememeber Bob Arihood told me I didn't know what I was talking about and he was an engineer but again he had to eat his words because the city is in over it's head with infrastructure problems and to date the steam pipe explosion by Grand Central was the most horrifying one in recent years and sadly it underscored my point. Note: I was in Tompkins last night before going to the Harps Galore recital at Theatre 80 and Bob Arihood leaned against a fence and stared at me. I was with many regulars of Tompkins and pointed him staring at me and we all agreed his photo of Marlene topless who was drunk was exploitive.


Sure seems like Chelsea News pulled this article and there were two reasons I am guessing, one is Christine Quinn was too busy to attend and more deaths and catastrophes were to come so they simply deleted the article as a public relations move or favor for Quinn.

Dear Alan: Your term for Lincoln is much better than air head so thank you and folks!

I got more praise on YouTube today from my diverse audience praising me for my assistance of Jim and Jesse Jane and my coverage of Giuseppie Logan including from an 18 year old sax player from Holland!

Dominick Dunne passed away

http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2009/08/dominick-dunne-obituary.html


For those who did not know Dominick Dunne he jumped in to our TV sets during the OJ trial.

Why he moves me is the loss he endured; the brutal murder of his beautiful daughter by her ex-boyfriend.

As anyone knows following my blog I write a lot about how women endure all kind of violence starting with verbal abuse, false accusations, blame and sadly verbal violence as statistics illustrate can lead to the worst case scenario which Dominck Dunne had to endure along with the rest of him family and friends. Please note I always point out intimacy is not required as Adrienne Shelly was murdered and blamed for her murder by a coward who tried pass his heinous deed off as suicide. Male abuseres blame women for just about everything. Everyone knew Adrienne Shelly loved life and her last film a masterpiece was dedicated to her love of life and her beautiful little daughter.

Dominick Dunne always had smart and compassionate insights to share and he was a great reporter that jumped out at me when he covered the O.J. Simpson trial and considering what Dunne went thru losing his daughter to violence this must have been brutal.

Rest in peace.

ps It was difficult writing this as I received a high volume of emails from an individual I repeatedly asked to stop and could not seem to do so.

Lincoln Air Head Anderson, assoc. editor of The Villager sends me an email and here is my response....he can't stop emailing me and I ask him to stop

Suzannah,

Hi, I hope you're doing well. I just wanted to say that 8,000 people have now viewed the Quinn-Kurland-Derr debate that The Villager and Gay City News hosted on Aug. 13.

Lincoln

My response folks:

Lincoln I thought we told each other no contact. Is this stalking?

Are you finally going to report the news like my demand for community out reach resource centers?

You are so busy not reporting the news you probably are the majority of the views!!!

Bye stalker who doesn't report the news but schills for people I pray the Feds are investigating!

Sent from my iPhone


Dear Readers: I sent Lincoln --The Villager an email about Jim falling and breaking his wrist and shoulder and I got a very unusual response back. The anonymous person did not want to use their The Villager email so they responded and cc: Lincoln and I printed out the response and I sent a copy to Commissioner Kelly and the Deputy Inspector of the 9th Precinct.

Folks: Lincoln Anderson who contacted me and I asked him to stop and he wrote me this back.

He refers to Hotdog -- a dehumanizing name for Marlene. I told Marlene that Bob Arihood had taken a photo of her topless and put it on the world wide web and if she was okay with that than fine but if not she should talk to Bob Airhood and ask him to remove it. If a woman is drunk and a man has sex with her it could according to the article in The New York Post considered rape. It looks like Marlene was drunk and that Bob had taken advantage of her photographing her topless without asking her if her if she was okay with it. Marlene told me she had family and people that know here and would see the photo. She was not happy. Marlene has suffered enough in her life.

This is what Lincoln writes. Folks if this is not harassment I don't know what is. I am minding my own business and Lincoln sends me email after email after I have told him to leave me alone which is harassment. When you tell someone "leave me alone" and they don't it is harassment.

Here is the lastest after I tell him to leave me alone yet again.


Suzannah, let me just say this once, so it's perfectly clear: I have no idea what you are talking about. I never sent you an "unusual response," I don't use phony e-mails (I don't even know how to create them), and I have no reason to send you an "unusual e-mail." Please, get off this weird kick you have about me. I am just a hard-working reporter and I am trying to do my job. Go bother someone else! Seriously, stop obsessing about me -- or whatever it is that you are doing about me, whatever you would call it, and stop being so negative about me, The Villager, whatever -- like I said before, please just go bother someone else, go and harass someone else. There are 8 million other people in NYC and billions more in the world -- start something with them. But kindly just leave me alone. Stop bashing me and stop bashing The Villager. None of it is merited. If you have problems and your ego was hurt because you weren't in an article five years ago -- get some help -- or go bother someone else. But leave me alone. Bob Arihood has told me all about you, so I know exactly what is going on. Bob tells me you are constantly harassing him and now are even trying to get Hot Dog to extort money from him because of a photo he posted of her on his blog. You are causing him real problems -- and he is just a photographer trying to document his neighborhood and its many characters. Suzannah, just leave us alone! Focus on yourself, get some help.

Thanks,
Lincoln

Folks I asked him to leave me alone so he wrote me again. This time I just won't answer him.


Suzannah,

As anyone could clearly see, unfortunately, the bad karma is coming from you. I try to have good relations with everyone, but it seems that you would rather dwell on some article from 6 or 7 years ago. Why don't you just get over it -- and get over yourself already? I just don't get it. Don't you have anything else going on in your life? It's so weird.

Lincoln

Folks: I was minding my own business and Lincoln Anderson contacted me. I avoid him like the plague since my demand for community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm and my honoring the memory of Filomena Silvestri of Whole Earth Bakery and Kitchen who died at 94 knowing we the community fought and won a small miracle -- she died knowing her business and her son's would not be evicted and thrown out on the street - but Anderson erased what I had to say. I asked him to print it the next week and he refused.

He calls Marlene Hotdog which is dehumanizing. She is a human being and a photo of her was taken topless when she was drunk. I felt she was taken advantage of. What a frightening thought to have two misogynists discussing me and blaming me for their cruel behavior. Nice, blame the victims. Marlene who is poor and mostly homeless is described as attempting to extort money from poor Bob Arihood who took a photo of her topless when she was drunk and regarding me harassing Bob if you only knew the trip Bob Arihood attempted to lay on me. It wasn't pretty. I do not talk to Bob and I keep as far away from him as possible. I used to think he had compassion for his subjects but now all I see is fear.

I will keep fighting for community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm. Lincoln Anderson tells me to get over it and move on. How about never.

Lincoln Anderson blames me for him emailing me and harassing me with repeated emails and he says I should get help but he is this the one harassing me tonight emailing me out of the blue after I have told me to leave me alone and I call him "stalker" so he attempts to blame me! Maybe he should take his own advice and get some help.

I do feel very sorry for Marlene. Bob should take the photo down and he should give her some significant money since he uses her so much over and over as a subject of his photos and she is poor. I have bought her food so many times whether I have taken a photo or not.


Folks: Lincoln Anderson has written me two more emails. I think there are eight or nine in total and I did call the police about my concerns regarding Lincoln Anderson and Bob Arihood and I made it clear I stay away from both of them.


Folks: Lincoln Anderson sent me yet another email....here it is

Suzannah,

I don't mean to be mean or hostile -- but I just don't know what to do to get through to you. I just wish you would put your energies toward something more constructive, instead of bashing me and the Villager, my publisher, etc. OK, no one's perfect, you weren't in an article a few years ago. But let's just move on. I always liked you as a person and an artist with an activist bent who cared about your East Village neighborhood, but then you just freaked out after the Whole Earth bakery article that Gerard Flynn, a freelancer, left you out of. Just get over it. Why hold a grudge like that for so long? Was it really such a big deal? Apparently it was. But can we just move forward after a certain point? I just don't understand the vendetta.

Lincoln


Folks here is the article -- it is from 2 years ago, not 6 years ago as Lincoln states which is one reason I call him "air head". http://www.thevillager.com/villager_198/veganaresckenedasfavorite.html in 2007 and I with much arm twisting I got Anderson to write an obituary on Filomna Silvestri after she died....I called her a Vegan Earth Mom but you will note no where in the article did she the owner and creator ever get mentioned. Anderson would not fix this error or erasing me, the only one who talked about her and also demanded community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm that would help the community and that includes small businesses struggling to survive.


Lincoln Anderson can't seem to grasp that community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm where they used the term "community facility" to supersize, bust through zoning and exclude the community members is wrong and The Villager is in league with NYU by not reporting my demands at the Whole Earth Bakery Rally and if they had maybe we would have at least one community outreach resource center to help people in need.

Folks -- instead of putting me down, using Bob Airhood now he writes me this. Do you think now he will finally leave me alone?


After the first email I wrote him to stop and gave him this posting so he was immediately alerted to the fact I was posting his email and my response. I had hoped this will help him find the breaks rather than obsessing. It did not work.

He has falsely accused me, insulted me and continues to harass me and than acts surprised that I am posting his emails when I sent him an email alerting him to this fact and the continue demand that he stop emailing me.

At some point did he not tell me I don't have a life. Gee do you think Bob Arihood told him that since the collective feeling is that Bob describing himself.

I spent the evening talking with someone and we were constantly interrupted by this obsessive and intrusive behavior. I was trying to read the Dominick Dunne piece to him and we were interrupted again. I asked him can you believe this? He said yes.

Suzannah,

All these e-mails were intended for you personally -- not to be posted on your blog.

I am just dismayed at the way your characterized the recent debate The Villager sponsored. (That is why I contacted you: Because you seem to be one of the main people putting out all the misleading misinformation, calling me an Air Head, calling my boss Air Space in your "coverage" of our debate.) Then debate was something I personally spent a lot of time working to set up, then to help run, etc. I put a lot of my own effort into it. You just want to dump on us and twist things. It's just sad. I had thought that by e-mailing you directly that maybe I could "patch things up with you," though I still don't feel I or anyone else here did anything wrong, other than to not quote you in an article maybe 5 or 6 years ago, which apparently deeply wounded your ego. But that seems to have earned a lifetime's worth of wrath from you -- and if I now send you an e-mail, in an effort to try to be nice to you and communicate with you civilly, you then you post it and twist it and try to make look like I'm (still) the bad guy, etc, etc.

I guess there is no point, and it's a lost cause.

Lincoln

Folks here yet another email:

Suzannah,

Would it help if I said, I support "community outreach resource centers in every mega dorm where they used the term 'community facility.' " Because I do. OK?

Lincoln

Folk: I keep asking do you think he is finally going to leave me alone?


If Lincoln Anderson wanted to support free speech and our right to community outreach resource centers in the mega dorms starting with NYUs why didn't he publish what I had say when I said it at the Whole Earth Bakery and Rally? Or the week after when I pointed out I was conveniently erased. Also please note I asked to stop and he hasn't.

Now folks do you think he will stop emailing me finally?
