Michael Rawson mgr. of The Mercer Hotel calls the NYPD on Veteran Vendors and artists except this one and an SUV parked for hours in the loading and unloading zone, the NYPD Peddler's unit passes by no tickets today but no tickets almost ever for illegally parked cars in front of the Mercer Hotel and they are parked for hours!
I guess Soho has no serous crime issues like drugs, rapes, robberies. Above a car breaking the law for hours.....maybe the car was unloading and loading pixie dust but even it had a fake NYPD parking placard I can pretty much tell you the NYPD won't look -- the NYPD suffers from Blind Eye-Itis when it comes to The Mercer as if they are on the payroll. By the way one of the guys told me there is yet a new luxury Hotel that will give the Mercer a run for it's money and based on Michael Rawson and his gang treating handicap Veterans like cockroaches I say bravo. His doormen, valets, thugs? ordered me to stop filming although they were standing with by me on Prince Street on public property and where coming over and over to look at me from around Prince St. and even came through the Mercer Kitchen eatery up to the glass door to stare at me yesterday as if they were waiting for me to leave yesterday. What a joy to see they had a new guy today that appeared sane and not thug like unlike the others that constantly come over to bully the vendors over any thing they can think of. Worse is when Michael Rawson gets the NYPD to take their place. These Vendors are not criminals and I do not have to stop filming on a public street but these guys ordered me to. I ignored them.
A source told me that Michael Rawson's guests were complaining about a group of African American men that would sing on these steps so they gave this artist special permission to put his art there and the NYPD have been instructed by Michael Rawson who may be the secret real commander of The First Precinct and the Peddlers Unit not to ticket this artist while many others have been hauled off in handcuffs and by the way whether ticketed or handcuffed the vendors fight these tickets and plenty are thrown out.
I call Capt. Winski. I am trying to find out information regarding procedure because I was told something that Capt. W said that is hard to believe and since I haven't heard from I am sending a registered letter to Commissioner Kelly tomorrow but of course no call back from Winksi. Capt. Winski has a retired Deputy Inspector brother and I would love to chat with him retired Deputy Inspector Peter Winski about Capt. Winski and the goings on at the Mercer Hotel.
I have always had responses and from NYPD higher ranked than Capt. Winksi but this is Soho the land for the rich white people that have this economic apartheid going on including Community Board 2 and it appears they along with rich white soho not all but most want vendors wiped off the street.
p.s the city has more murders, heroin is being sold on the street to kids to $2.00!!!! Nice to know rich white people get of Soho have such a responsive NYPD unit -- three actually including the Peddlers and even a NYPD unit for ticketing that refuses to ticket illegally parked cars in front of the hotel....
I took this photo and tickets where handed out by the NYPD to vendors that day but not one NYPD officer would look or does look at the goings on at the Mercer Hotel loading and unloading.
So nice to be rich and thisclose to the NYPD that you not only get a response but it is like you run the NYPD.
