Bogus NY Daily News piece -- NYU continues to destroy the Village East and West and any NYU occupies NYC - it is at the community's expense - of course John Sexton has powerful friends







Was this written by Mort Zuckerman who was forgiven a $38 million forfeiture  fee he owed the city of NY by Rudy Giuliani when Mort backed out of the Coliseum deal? Visit 120 E 12th St. and see the facade of *St. Ann's from 1847 that survived everything but NYU's need and greed to build yet another mega dorm. NYU mega dormed the East Village to death and is the Evil Empire of the E.V. with Cooper Union, NY Law, The New School and SVA following NYU's lead confusing the EV w/dorm fodder. NYU has crushed communities where ever NYU occupies real estate like Stuy Town that was meant to be affordable housing not NYU student housing. NYU uses Broadway & Lafayette St. as parking lots for their fleets of buses & trolleys. NYU uses the term "community facility" to supersize, bust thru zoning & exclude the community. I wrote Pres. Obama asking for his assistance to demand NYU give us community outreach resource centers in ever dorm so the kids will see a community struggling and get involved since John Sexton who earns 1.8 million as a base salary said no. No wonder he ran down to testify that Bloomberg needs a third term. Does Sexton even declare NYC as his home? Can he even vote in NY? NYU doesn't even need to abuse eminent domain to displace an entire community like Columbia University displaced Manhattanville.




The title "It takes a Village" shows how out of touch you are with the people of NYC being crushed by real estate magnates like NYU, Columbia University and Cooper Union who use and abuse their higher ed status to bust through our zoning and crush our community. We look less like a village and more like a bad xerox of Dubai thanks to NYU and Cooper Union in the East and West Village. Enough. I know Mort Zuckerman, Mike Bloomberg, Amanda the people's Burdens, the Clinton's and Jon Corizine are tight with John 1.8 million dollar a year Sexton but if they care about the people of NY they have to tell this guy to find a conscious and stop harming the community and displacing them.

* The USPS owned the air rights over St. Ann's and sold the air to NYU for I think 7 million dollars but did not notify the State of NY as legally obligated so the State of NY would have than come in and examined is this in the best interest of the community.  It never happened and that pretty much sums up NYU and the USPS respect -- or rather the lack of for the community.

Giuseppie Logan calls me to see how I am feeling.

So sweet, Giuseppi Logan called to check on me and see how I am feeling.  I am still coughing and my throat hurts.  GL wishes it was sunny so he can go out and play music. It also helps because he can earn money.  Very sweet and thoughtful....I told him about the newest commentor calling him a jazz legend.

Giuseppi is giving me one of his CD's from way back when from before he disappeared in to the shadows...


Here is the comment from Soulnik and below is the new composition that he named after me.


 Giuseppie Logan gigs in NYC:
Giuseppi Logan is a jazz legend. His new CD is superb.

Shirley Adelson Siegel, 91 a big time NYer doing pro bono work---this piece by Susan Dominus gives you a hint on why I love NYC so much

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/nyregion/30bigcity.html?hp

How moving and inspiring is this piece more like an art work than an article...a beautiful painted canvas illuminating beautiful humanity undaunted.

Siegel survived the Great Depression and is more than equipped to encourage us to get through these tough times.

One of my letters published in the Arts Section of The New York Times is in response to an article written by Susan Dominus and when a certain part of my life story is highlighted re: being cyber stalked, stalked and harassed involving a group I call "The Misogynist Club" this letter will be even more significant for those following my blog.

Suzannah B. Troy emails Janette Sadik-Kahn to follow up-GREAT News NYC calls back and the speed bumps are coming.

Suzannah B. Troy emails Janette Sadik-Kahn to follow up on
speed bumps for the 2 schools Lower East Side.


I have done a series of blog postings and even 2 YouTubes and I have
great news which makes feel love even for
Mike Bloomberg at least in this moment!
(But just for this moment because he denied us a referendum
and he pushed a tsunami of development.)


Here it the first YouTube telling me the good news.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obog7rNpkvM


I was worried because the telephone number on my
confirmation letter for the speed
bumps from DOT was disconnected but all is well.


I was given the new telephone number and assured
the speed bumps are coming.


Note: I have this bad cold or a flu and I won't even be
celebrating Passover tonight but staying home
but this telephone call in response to my email to
Janette Sadik-Kahn brought me great joy.


I have to rest now but I will with great happiness.
Happy Passover and Happy Easter,
Happy everything to you all and a special feeling of love
for my maternal Grandfather
who was born in a tenement house not far from these
two schools.  
The speed bumps are indeed coming. I was told I would
never get speed bumps by a public member of CB3.
I am so happy to know I will be proving him wrong and
that these bumps will add to the safety of these kids and
an the Kids MagicalGarden sandwiched between
the schools meaning the area is dense with children.


Thanks and gratitude to everyone at DOT involved with 
helping me get speed bumps!!!!
The woman who telephoned me from DOT must be an angel.
She made me so happy and the timing was appreciated because
I won't be celebrating Passover with loved ones.
with love,
Suzannah (coughing her head off)

2 men stabbed to death welcome to fragile New York City


How fragile must one be to murder people for an imagined slight. Welcome to the streets of New York and of no politicians are raising their voices in outrage...


Posted above comment on this article  http://www.nydailynews.com/news/ny_crime/2010/03/28/2010-03-28_two_men_stabbed_killed_on_no_2_subway_third_man_injured.html

Let us face it.   You can be murdered on the streets of New York City for bumping in to someone, refusing to give them your wallet or simply sitting in your living room or bedroom and a stray bullets ends a life...  

If a person doesn't die death by NYPD than the politicians like Dave Paterson can't be bothered and I hear no billionaire rap leaders raising their voices although Russell Simmons is working on something and thank goodness.
I am sicker than I was yesterday.  It is not the swine flu but the Bloomberg-NYU-Cooper Union flu.  People close to me know more but I have to rest right now.

Beautiful comment posting praising Mike Lytle as a musician as well as a gardener






For those who don't know, Michael is also an amazing clarinet player, primarily bass clarinet, with whom I had the pleasure of studying a good number of years ago. He brings the same kind of discovery and inventiveness and "finding fun little things hiding in plain view" to his music. A very patient and enlightened guy.


Above is his comment.  Mike retired as gardener of Tompkins and his replacement "D" is hard working and very kind as well.  I found my YouTube of Mike playing with John Zorn and fellow musicians here
http://www.encyclopedia.com/video/3jgcyqxblC0-john-zorn-mike-lytle-friends.aspx




You can find Mike's music in the ITunes store!


Coco Before Chanel starring Audrey Tatou, Coco "before" she collaborated with the Nazis?

I rented "Coco Before Channel" not knowing "before" really was referring to a sweet white washed Coco that ends in Paris at the beginning of her success. It stops there before.......she gets involved with the Nazis including a lover, Nazi Officer and intelligence Hans Guther Von Incklage.

I had no idea until I googled her after watching what appeared to be an enchanting film starring french actress Audrey Tatou.


One of Jesse James flings is with a a woman that also happen to model dressed in Nazi hat and band with a dagger to her mouth as sex kitten and she claims she is not a racist.  She has a statement on her website http://michellebombshell.com/blog/ stating she does not tolerate racism, bigotry of any kind. On the posting below where she is giving the finger to Haters she states her website is a no Nazi zone and that she was hired by a photographer and it was his stupid idea.  She has choice words for him.


I do not like Nazi imagery but there is a huge difference between throwing on a Nazi hat which I find repellent and actually collaborating with the real Nazis.


I remember sitting in Sunshine Movie Theatre and watching Laird Hamilton in a film on surfacing the biggest waves and was shocked to see some California surfer kids wearing pieces of Nazi uniforms. Hamilton said their fathers brought them home from WW2 but who imagined the kids would take them out and wear them to the beach?  The Nazi imagery is part of American tattoo culture as well which is shocking. Is it about shock value or something else?  


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ADy8f6t4Ri8 


The french film maker, Anne Fountaine does the worst kind of white washing by not addressing Cocco Channel and her role with the Nazis in Paris, France and instead Fountaine makes her into an icon.


Paris has quotos given to them by the Nazis.  One was for Jewish children.   The Parisian official working with the Nazi's exceeded the count of Jewish children he was asked for.  I stood in front of a plaque for these children on a school front in Paris.


I will never feel the same about Chanel ever again.  I do love their lipsticks and I tell myself the current Chanel has nothing to do with the anti-semite, homophobe  Nazi collaborator Coco.

In strong contrast, Marlene Dietrich left Germany and made it clear she was anti- Hitler and the Nazis.

Hitler wanted her side and she made it clear where she stood.  The link above shows her supporting American troops.  A far cry from a supposed french icon Coco Chanel.

NYPD Confidential -- a look in to Internal Affairs, The New York Times

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/28/nyregion/28iab.html?pagewanted=3&ref=nyregion


It is frightening when NYPD officers behave like criminals.  I am glad the NYPD has increased the Internal Affairs budget and staff but more has to be done screening people and weeding out those lacking empathy and a moral compass before they ever get a badge or a gun in their hand.




Note:  There has to be intense screening for alcohol and drug abuse including prescription drugs like *Ambien and this applies to applicants and any retired NYPD officers invited to One Police Plaza to take part in any NYPD activities.  




*Ambien's possible side effects: aggression, anxiety, mental illness, hallucinations, suicide

Passover Seder

I am sicker today with the Bloomberg-NYU-Cooper Union -flu (not the swine flu)...may not be attending any seder at this rate.
I would like to attend the seder at The White House and discuss what I have posted below with the President, his other half, everyone there....

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/28/us/politics/28seder.html?src=me&ref=homepage


NYU set the slick shady use of the term "community facility" to tear down our community, supersize, bust through zoning and exclude the community.  NYU mega dormed the East Village to death and set the mold for Cooper Union, The New School, NY Law and SVA all confusing the East Village with dorm fodder.  They use the term community facility yet exclude the facility and pretend they have nothing to do with the on going displacement of the community and small businesses.


My letter to President Obama-- I bought his card and mailed him this letter.  I would tell him at his Seder at The White House about the Cooper Union students who do no volunteer in our community but spend their time cyber bullying me and it underscores the need for community outreach resource centers.
Elderly people would have a place to go other than the library or Burger King to sit and this centers would offer resources to all in the community that need help and assistance and remind students the community is struggling and to get involved in helping the community.

Mike is a funny guy when he lets his hair down

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NJgUeH6LvpA My stand up comedy about the little emperor of NYC except if you think about it - it is not funny. I would like to ask Mike if he thinks it is possible if we might being heading in to an economic depression? When Mike Bloomberg says "progress" he means "get your moving van". Welcome to Mike and his socialite mega million city planner Amanda the people's Burden's "new" hideous NY. Mike even made Babe Ruth's ghost homeless. Bloomberg burden the tax payers with a new stadium that most can't afford the seats, hot dog and beer. Mike denied us a referendum and flushed democracy down the toilet. Some legacy.

    Mike is a funny guy. When Mike Bloomberg says "progress" he means get your moving van. Do you know the real reason the city of NY gives out free condoms? Because the people of NY are so screwed. We can thank Albany as well as corrupt wheeling in dealings at City Hall. The tax payers had to pay a big part of the tab for a new Yankee Stadium with some of the highest paid athletes but can't afford a seat, a hot dog or beer. Mike even made Babe Ruth's ghost homeless. I do have a question for Mike? Do you think it is possible we are heading in to an economic depression? Why would you and socialite mega millionaire city planner Amanda the people's Burden push a tsunami of development on old NY's infrastructure, push population growth knowing the subway system couldn't contend with it, you close firehouses, schools. Oh and you deny us a referendum aka flushing democracy down the toilet. Funny guy. Buying a third term with the most expensive and humiliating win is hilarious Mike and hiring your campaign staff all w/6 figure salaries on the tax payer's back even funnier.

    interviews

    Someone who really takes an interest in me is giving me an opportunity to interview someone I greatly admire and it was suppose to be today.  I feel like I have flu like symptoms today and a lot of coughing so I am happy to say the function I was invited to got pushed back a solid month.  Can't wait to share the interviews and the moving event that will bring these inspiring folks together...I will be bringing you more than one.

    Are we heading for an economic depression?

    One more gloomy thought?  Are we heading for an economic depression?

    Well at least NYU won't be slowed down from crushing our communities with their Godzilla like approach for their unending need to expand.  The Godzilla analogy I believe was first used in a piece by Amy Zimmer from Metro.

    Hollywooders make mega bucks even off of clunkers. Nice. Now they are gong to raise the prices to see movies here in NYC and LA LA decision makers act like we are not in economic crisis that could turn in to a depression at this rate. It doesn't effect them. Even if the movie goes straight to video they have found way to turn it in to profits. Next time you are in a video store, if you can find one look at a shelf and do the math on the budget of each film. One wall is probably over a billion dollars. Of the wall could you name 3 really great films? At least everyone involved got big bucks so who cares? It is legalized organized crime.

    On legalized organized crime:  ditto for NYU, Cooper Union, Columbia University, NY Law dorm on 3rd Street, the USPS who uses and abuses it's Federal Status with real estate deals (ex. 120 East 12th Street-air space sale to NYU-oops could not be bothered to obey the law and notify the State of NY as legally required) as well as with customers, politicians, Wall Street, Corporate America, Pharmaceutical companies (big time), etc.

    Rest -- not

    First thanks to all the people that write me about my health.  I just got very touching emails from someone who found my blog and contacted me yesterday and he expressed several kind thoughts to me and one was concern for my health.  Very touching....

    I used to be vegetarian (ran my marathons as a vegetarian) and I long to return to being a veg only eater.  When I started donating gallons of my platelets and two white blood cell donations as well as occasionally whole blood which is the shortest and easiest I start to not be a vegetarian to make sure I passed the iron test which even than sometimes I did not.

    Well my primary care MD and my acupuncturist have said not more blood donations and in fact to chill on giving period.  I am told I have to rest and I find rest in NYC one of the hardest endeavors.   I was talking to someone not in NY yesterday and he could not get over the noise pollution including loud sirens blasting in the back round.

    I got matzoh ball soup from Whole Foods and it was not as good as Mom's and also had a lot of pepper and as you know I have acid reflux so that may be one reason it feels like a 3rd degree burn in the back of my throat.  I also have a major cold so today is an official rest day.  The papers have not loaded their sites with new news  but I am sure it is the usuals on corruption in NY politics, horrifying cuts with implications that have not set in and the irony is Hollywood wants to raise movie prices not slash them which shows you how out of touch LaLa land is because here in NYC that just means more people won't be going.

    The harsh cuts won't affect the rich entertainers or steroid popping athletes that lie to the public like their many girlfriends.  I can't understand why Mike Bloomberg, the great businessman could not do more  to prevent these horrible cuts including to the NYPD which means more crime on the streets to the school system and also how Bloomberg burdened the middle class and drove them out like no other despot even mean old Rudy and more is to come.  Someone do the stats on that.  How many people left NY under Mike Bloomberg's 1st ,2nd, and 3rd term  but be comforted at least NYU, Cooper Union and Columbia U. - Columbia displaced the entire neighborhood of Manhattanville and continue on expanding using higher ed like a tax shelter to gobble up NYC.

    Be comforted the most obscenely paid athletes the Yankees (and I am Yankee Fan but Thurmond Munson and Babe Ruth are my favorites) are paying in a new stadium highly funded by tax payer money and most tax payers can't afford it but at least A-Roid's newest girlfriends will have free seats.  Maybe he has several attend the same game?  I remember in old Yankee stadium an outfielder sending one of the bat boys to attempt to pick up a young woman.  I thought wow can this guy multi-task.  She turned down the millionaire ball player.  We are all invited to attend the games, it is just most New Yorkers can't afford the seats, the beer, the hot dogs, etc.  Welcome to the Bloomberg's new hideous NY.

    Thanks for following my blog....I am really trying to devote today to resting because this cold is beginning to resemble the flu.  Not the swine flu but I may have the Bloomberg NYU flu .

    I don't know if John Sexton the president of the purple reign of terror NYU can even vote here in NYC but I do know he ran down to testify that the little emperor of NY must have a third term.  NYU newest greedy community crushing expansion beginning to be exposed is the ugly reason why and Bill Thompson and or Tony Avella would never have allowed this to go on.

    I will never forget what I witness next door to my now ex-home of 20 years. The parishioners of St. Ann's crying and praying on the street.  Many on their knees crying and singing hymns.  The USPS had illegally sold the air rights to NYU.  Illegally just like they chronically blocked the fire hydrant in front of my home of 2 decades.  The USPS never notified The State of NY as legally required so the State could come in and examine is this air sale in the best interest of the community, examine environmental concerns, etc. It never happened.

    Welcome to Mike Bloomberg's new hideous NY built on "old" New York's crumbling infrastructure and more disintegration is too come from horrible cuts including the MTA and city gov. to the streets and infrastructure already in worse shape despite the mega builds -- getting worse.  I think Con Ed is raising prices because of all the zone busting sky piercing developments they tried to keep pace with....we are paying I believe for Con Ed's attempts to keep up with the expansion but who expands and pushes a reckless greedy stupid tsunami of development pushing population growth and closes firehouses?  Someone who is now leading us to even harsher cuts and the clowns of Albany helped a long the way.  Espada and Monserrate bringing Albany to a stand still hurt big but that was and is lost on them.  I hope that Espada is arrested this year on theft of tax payer money.   The USA's debt is in the mega trillions and homelessness is up but be comforted that NYU, Cooper Union and Columbia U can expand their campuses be involved in shady real estate deals that cost the people of NY big including mass displacement or more subtle ways when eminent domain is not abused.

    Enjoy the Yankees from the idiot box that is unless cable and Yes have a battle over money...


    I am going to rest and think happy thoughts.  Despite all this there are such good people around and I feel very connected to goodness.  As Yoda says, "May the force be with you."

    Note: People following my blog know I was cyber stalked and harassed by Bloombergforlife who took on many different identities to contact me over and over after I repeatedly asked him and his many different identities including female identities, one with my name to stop contacting me and would block the many YouTube identities.  The day after the mayoral election I believe he contacted me as Tony Avella.  He began by posting a question.  Why didn't you vote for me?   Yes, he stole Tony Avella's identity to contact me and harass me and my YouTube audience.  The real Tony Avella contacted Google and both fake accounts with Tony's stolen name were suspended. Tony Avella's identity was one of many this creep stole and toyed with the YouTube community.  Cyber stalking and harassment via the computer is serious aka aggravated harassment and so is identity theft.

    Revisiting an old YouTube I made on John Sexton pres NYU the purple reign of terror, stop tearing down and supersizing our communities!!

    Talking to David Kaufman author of the new Doris Day bio on Stephen Sondheim

    Stephen Sondheim's 80th birthday has been the talk of the town and there has been much excitement celebrating Sondheim's many achievements and contributions as well.   I asked David Kaufman, a dear friend of mine and author of the biographies on Charles Ludlam  and Doris Day for his insights on octogenarian.

    David told me Stephen Sodheim's reputation is for being a brilliant lyricist and his composition is less appreciated.  Yet if you listen to his music repeatedly it works it's charms on you and is as beautiful.

    (Folks:  As you know I have a bad cold and resting is not my strong point so I am paraphrasing not quoting.)

    Suzannah B. Troy emails Janette Sadik-Kahn to follow up on speed bumps for the 2 schools Lower East Side

    Janette Sadik-Khan and Margaret Forgione: I tried calling 212-487-8341 and the tele. no. is disconnected w/ no forwarding info. I want to follow up on Man Log 9204 to make sure we are getting the speed bumps for the two schools, Rivington Stanton and Stanton East Houston. In the letter dated Aug. 3, 2009 I got confirmation and I await the bumps. I saw teenagers rough housing in the streets and one boy rested on the street next to a parked car. I urge these bumps be put in asap for the safety of the students. Thank you again! Suzannah




    Note: Dear Readers - there is a 150 word count so I did my best. I am trying to rest and this is a good time to follow up.

We're eagerly awaiting the Memorial Day opening of the new Zamperla amusement park "Luna Park" on the former site of Astroland.  The Coney Island USA Sideshows by the Seashores will be back, freakier than ever; Lola's Dreamland Roller Rink will return to the wonderful Child's building; the Coney Island History Project will unveil new exhibit items, the Ringling Brothers Circus will re-pitch its big top, and that's just the start of it... Let's not forget the big ticket events: the Mermaid Parade, Siren Festival, and Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, all of which will be coming back this summer.

    This season is guaranteed to be much more successful than last year.  However, several of the entrenched problems that have long undermined the amusement area persist - from poor transportation and inadequate bathrooms to vacant lots and underutilized spaces. All these issues could be addressed and fixed by this summer and certainly by the 2011 season.

    Center for Urban Future ReportOn Tuesday, the NYC-based think tank Center for an Urban Futurepublished a commentary by several Save Coney Island volunteers entitled "Completing Coney's Comeback: Ten Suggestions for Making this Summer a Success". The commentary came directly out of the Coney Island town hall meeting we held back in January and incorporates many of the suggestions made by participants. You can read it here. We're hoping City Hall and key stakeholders, such as property owners, will build on the positive momentum generated by the arrival of Zamperla USA and really pull out the stops to make this Coney Island summer one to remember.  In the coming weeks, we'll be announcing a few of our own initiatives to help spur these efforts.


    We hope to see you on Sunday for the start of a spectacular season!

    Suzannah B. Troy buys Rishat Kamalov's Coney Island How Sweet it is Cyclone photo and gets Love, a love magnet

    I bought the photo from Robert Kamalov's  daughter who was out selling his photos today and I got some love too, a LOVE magnet.  I love how he framed the Cyclone with the "how sweet it is" and the street signs "Surf Ave" and "Milton Berger Place"

    Robert Kamalov is working towards setting up a website but doesn't have one yet.  You can find his work at Union Square.


    Also know there are big exciting functions coming up to help Save Coney Island!!!

    Robert Lederman leads the charge against king Mike Bloomberg who wants to charge artists to sell their art at Union Square

    Robert Lederman who successfully and courageously  took on despot and enemy of the artists,  ex-mayor Rudy Giuliani is now taking on king Mike and the city of New York yet again.  Fresh from a win at High Line Robert Lederman is preparing to take on the little emperor of NYC Mike Bloomberg at Union Square because Mike has to find more ways to make life unliveable for struggling New Yorkers because mass displacement and ticketing them up to their eye balls is not enough.


    Mike Bloomberg the king of New York who proved democracy is for sale is the man with the help of socialite mega millionaire Amanda the people's Burden, the worst city planner in NYC's history -- dear friends to John Sexton of NYU, Cooper Union and Columbia University who abused eminent domain to displace an entire neighborhood ---- and all  greedy real estate developers  exploited the city and squeezed the real estate like a big lemon all for their greed and needs and the people are a dam inconvenience so Mike and gang devise all kinds of ways to continue to push people out.


    Bloomberg's community crushing tsunami which was suppose to be good for the economy -- hilarous if it wasn't so offenseive shared the stupidity, greedy of Wall Street and that brought an implosion...sure looks like the city had one and more is to come.

    Bloomberg's brought a tsunami of community crushing development city wide and old New York's infrastructure are not satisfied  with pulling extra string, aiding and abetting shady dealings and finding every loop hole to bust through our zoning -- so Mike's new way to raise money is to charge artists to sell their art at Union Square.

    contact info for Robert Lederman for people to join the battle against Mike the supposed patron of arts Bloomberg....

    Folks - I have a major head cold and I am wiped out --exhausted -- I think I got the contact info correctly but I can't be sure.

    Don't forget I had all 334 YouTubes of mine and most were slamming Mike Bloomberg all removed from YouTube for 28 hours with out any explanation and thanks to Norman Siegel who represented with Google who owns YouTubes and so many activists friends speaking up for me I did get my work restored and an apology from Google.

    Here is one of a two part dark comedy series on Mike Bloomberg -- he has got us covered....

    Good Luck Robert Lederman and I am confident you will win yet again
    and kick another despot mayor that would be king to the curb.

    Ghandi with a red boa Union Square



    A cold day like today is a good day to watch the film Ghandi.   Someone adorned the moving Ghandi statute with a bright red boa but the winds or some person did remove his bright scarf.

    Angel in the subway -- a good young man

    I was not feeling well and a young man, very good looking hispanic young man was really looking out for me and very protective.  I told him who ever gets you is very lucky.

    Very touching and a reminder there are some good guys out there.

    Why is Paterson still here? More info on Paterson covering for Johnson

    I do not understand why Paterson could not find some integrity and resign, He needs to devote all his energy to his defense on this and his other legal problems and allow Albany to focus on their mega billion dollar crisis. There is also a report of another staff member with a bad resume involving roughing up a woman and it seems that Johnson and Paterson cover for each other as exposed on the Yankee ticket scandal with the forged check.

    City still pouring millions in to a black hole...no surprise

    Good reporting. Maybe it is time for city council to unvote themselves a raise and king Mike to fire his campaign staff he hired with 6 figure salaries in the midst of a budgetary crisis.

    Con Edison to raise prices

    Welcome to New York where everything costs more and the people are being screwed.

    Include way too many polticos NY State and City Hall....I can't keep up with all the corruption being reported.

    MTA -- where does all the money go that they collect?

    Coyote caught in Tribeca, Buy the film Wolfen, cutting edge still and unwelcome development" plays a factor in the film

    Wolfen    The film and the book are worth taking a look at.  Wolfen

    Albert Finney plays a worn out NYPD detective and a local East Villager Tom Noonan does an excellent job more than holding his own with Finney in this sci-fi, horror mystery and "unwelcome development" plays a role this outstanding film.  It is old but not dated.   I recommend the film and the book. I enjoyed the film more than the book.

    A fourth mistress of Jesse James is coming forward condoms may not be a priority but Gloria Allred as your lawyer is

    http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2010/03/25/2010-03-25_jesse_james_has_been_quite_the_tiger_fourth_alleged_mistress_emerges_to_sink_san.html


    Rumors go on and on about lots of  sex-texting, no underwear, no condoms but few women involved with this scandal and the Tiger Wood scandal seemed that concerned about having an affair as much as getting publicity and like  the newest Jesse James mistress about to emerge -- no. 4  getting  the  "top tigress " Gloria Allred as her lawyer .   In these kinds of cases,  why would she need Gloria Allred unless ta da.... she, like many of Tiger Woods mistresses,  is thinking about Allred  negotiating  some big cashola.  No. 4 for JJ claims to have had a relationship for several years that just ended.  Yes,  Gloria Allred is your go to lawyer specializing in this new genre of celebrity sex-texters with serial mistresses.   Wow, times have changed.  Adultery is a big business!!!!!!!!


    I don't believe in cheating and lying.  A lot of men do not wear wedding rings and they do pass themselves off as single.  These men are to be avoided like the plague.  Even if a man and woman have an open agreement that cheating is acceptable I still say no thanks.

    Cheating is common place and occurs more than one might think with both males and females globally and in some countries is accepted but not in America which still has a Puritan stance on adultery although again many Americans do cheat.  Pamela Druckerman has a book out on this topic which I am reading called Lust in Translation: Infidelity from Tokyo to Tennessee .  I am reading this book  because I have had married men hit on me and also because a long time ago I  had this nutty  old  woman accuse me of adultery with her decaying husband and besides the fact it was not true I could see how much drama and importance it added to her day. FYI, I tend to like younger men and go through a diatribe on how you have to be single.  I mean really single and that includes not living with someone.

    Gays fight for the right for marriage and I support their right to be married but there are people like me that to date have avoided marriage for the simple reason marriages so rarely really work.  Apparently Sarah Silverman is like minded but far more extreme. http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/marriage_gross_NahkvvPNZZl03pjtRJDSfK

    I do think about marriage.  It is hard not to in this society.   The pressure is to be married and you are definitely treated differently-- not in a good way --  as a single.   My favorite photo of an unconventional wedding is Mike Lichter's Just Married which is a biker photo that I happen to own. Sturgis (Dakotas) I do think about getting married with a pre-nup -- what's mine is mine and what's yours is your and marry asap to a guy with good health benefits because my pay out each month is way too high but other wise I don't see marriage anytime in the near future.

    I do think if you want to make sure a married man does not cheat on you, the wife needs to tattoo or brand her tele no. on his forehead like 911 with instructions to call  or even better  LoJack his package but the odds are if your spouse was cheating before the marriage he is most likely not going to stop when he marries you.  Some women pretend they did not know or were clueless but it is hard to believe.  I am sure if Sandra Bullock really thought about it -- she had to see the red lights but she did not let herself process the information.  I never have seen adultery as just between two people.   I  believe the wife almost always knows.   That there were warning signals before the marriage and sometimes the husband is cheating and it is not with a woman.   The Confession

    There is no doubt that women cheat on their husbands as well and the husband can be devastated but in one example given in "Lust in Translation", he was devastated but he had cheated as well so there can be a double standard based on gender and as usual women are judged far more harshly than men.  In the case of Tiger Woods and Jesse James, their actions are so extreme, mega-narcissists and they have little  understanding their children are the biggest casualties.   One big shift which I am suprised about is people are very angry and disgusted with the men  and instead of being perceived as super studs they are being looked at as super destructive, super slime with serious problems throwing away an awful lot that most people would be grateful for.

    I won't say never but so far I have avoided marriage.

    Note:  I am as usual extemely exhausted.  Besides some health issues I am addressing including "throat burn" I have a cold and I am too tired to proof but you get the jist of what I am saying.  I write and do my art, YouTubes that get to the heart and soul of what I am saying, you either get it or don't.

    I wrote this in response to a comment on my facebook:
    It is not a coincidence -- the timing. Women tend to be very believing, very compassionate, very hopeful with bad guys and mostly they are very betrayed. If belief was a bank account filled with gold most of us that believed have been left feeling robbed. She had to have ignored the warning signs including his resume of two failed marriages, 3 kids with 2 women and the fact he was not involved with the kids until Sandra put the pressure on him to jointly parent them with her. I wanted Gabby to win but Sandra did and instead of basking in the glow she is basking in humiliation. I think he is so shut down and so used to being above it and in his own insulated world it was like  2  Jesses and one deeply resented her and one did really love her. But I am sure he is addicted to the high of each sexcapade and even falling in love. Predication - divorce and he will be married again is a few years. Sandra will remain unmarried.

    Suzannah B. Troy at Eileen's Cheese Cake to pick up a small retired sugar free cake for a VIP NYC

    I was invited to the retirement party at Katz's but I could not make it.  This dear person who has served the dept. of Ed, division of Special Needs with the parks dept, the city of NY and worked with kids with great devotion is retiring after 25 years which makes him a VIP in my book.  He is a diabetic so I picked up a small sugar free cake at Eileen's http://www.eileenscheesecake.com/ to celebrate his contribution!  Just a small gesture of appreciation.  

    ps  I met some of the kids and there are such sweet good souls.

    Suzannah B. Troy a quickie make-over with Claire of Clarins Bloomingdales



    It is hard to see and I don't wear much make-up but Claire did a beautiful job. She is a beautiful older Irish woman that found her way to NYC and I just thought she was a wonderful person. I really did not have time so it was in and out.  The bottom pic is before and the other 2 are after with eye liner, mascara and make up base.  Thanks Claire!!!!!!

    Suzannah B. Troy mid-town very happy - subway car picks up garbage to help the MTA



    What is it with New Yorkers and eye hand coordination.  Are people in a daze, terrible despair, self hatred, a state of decay or lack of respect that they can't find a garbage.  Had such a beautiful day I wanted to do my part to help and by clearing off the seat a Mom and daughter could sit down comfortably.

    I was also in awe of this African American Mom carrying one child in a baby stroller and very patiently waiting for the other child, a little girl to make it down each enormous subway step.  They had to be enormous to this little girl.

    St. Marks Place -- A sunny woman bicycling for PEACE

    A teenager in Long Island kills herself. It may have been related to cyber bullying on the internet.

    My heart goes out this young person and her loved ones.  (Note: I wrote him and there are two reasons why.  One is a television program I saw on a teenage boy that killed himself was on my brain and there was another reason as well which the people who I sent out an email with this probably know why.) Cowardly bullies just get older and here is an example. A man 20 years older than me, grossly over weight with no income except sueing the City of NY asked me to have his baby. I said no. He now stalks me photographing me without my knowledge and stalks me on the internet and he and his pals did a cyber gang attack at me on his blog. The internet has spawned a new breed of cowardly bullies that must be filled with so much self hatred that dumping their hate on an innocent person is like a vacation for them. The usually are jealous of the person or people they hate and clearly there is something really wrong globally with this type of cyber hate. I did a YouTube on Cooper Union's endangering our community and a gang of CU students came to my tube and cyber gang banged me. They told me how smart they are and how wrong I am so many times YouTube started marking them as spam. I asked why won't you use your real names? I was told the internet is about being anonymous. Cyber stalking tends to be gangs and they are obsessed and relentless. I am sure the stats of suicide and violence globally are telling but the question is how to stop they people from their violence. Harassing people on the computer is aggravated harassment and that means jail time. If someone kills themselves do to cyber stalking and harassment than I believe they are involved as if it was murder.  I could see how someone like a teenager could be pushed over the edge by cyber bullying.


    Note:  I have forwarded all comments by the group involved in harassing me and I do have an aggravated harassment complaint against Lincoln Anderson of The Villager.  In the many emails he sent me after i told him to stop contacting me he goes on and on about this gross old guy and they both appear obsessed with me.  The newest attempt by the old guy to post a comment on a supporter of mine's blog was sent to me.  I forwarded to the NYPD and besides being blatantly untrue mirrors that crazy talk in the emails that are in the aggravated harassment complaint.   This guy used to work for Lincoln Anderson.
