NYT fails to See the Real Story by Gary Tilzer (Hey Gary The New York Times has a real problem telling the real story way too often!)
NYT Fails to See the Real StoryBy Gary Tilzer
On the same day the NYT does an article saying pols can do whatever they want and get reelected, it prints an article about Espada lawyer long time Bronx Democratic Party operative and lobbyist Stanley Schlein that is off point. Nicholas Confessore the writer of the NYT article does not go into why are Democratic lawyer is helping the man who destroyed the Democratic majority in the State Senate. He sidetracks the story to the fact that Schlein is a lobbyist for the Real Estate Board of New York away from dysfunctional battle over the control of the State Senate. Is Schlein attempting to broker a deal between the two sides? Espada Puts Lawyer-Lobbyist at Center of Talks on Senate Power Struggle
What Confessore should have been looking at is why the Bronx DA is all the sudden trying to drop the assault case against Espada son Judge benches plea deal for son over scuffle with blogger. A deal brokered between prosecutors and State Sen. Pedro Espada's son to allow the younger Espada to avoid criminal charges fell apart in Bronx Supreme Court Thursday when Judge Joseph Dawson (appointed by republican mayor Giuliani) felt the terms were too light. Alejandro Espada, 30, is accused of pushing 75-year-old City Hall blogger Rafael Martinez-Alequin and breaking his video camera after Martinez-Alequin peppered Sen. Espada with questions during a campaign rally on Sept. 7, 2008.More Espara State pulls Espada grant Comptroller revokes $3M payment to renegade senator's Bronx health network, citing liens, judgments and warrants *** In an article Sunday in the DN by Barbara Ross reports that State Sen. Pedro Espada finally filed campaign finance disclosure forms with the state, he claimed he had "no activity" in his grueling bid for election last year. The story also reported that A Bronx grand jury has subpoenaed testimony and tapes from blogger, Rafael Martinez Alequin, who took videos of Espada's food distribution and petition signing events. But did not report a tape of Espada neighbors saying he did not live at the Bronx residence he claims as his legal residents for his senate job. It also did not report on judge who refused to go along with a deal to dismiss an assault charge against Espara son who attacked Martinez while he was filing a rally after Martinez residence tape become public. This is very strange since Eddie Baez who the DN reported did not get paid the money by Espapa's son for hanging posters, is also a witness in the Martinez ass ult case No activity' or brutal campaign by Pedro Espada, wonders election big
Activist sends me article Highrise collapse & I think that might happen here but from below ground infrastructure
Do you think there is something seriously wrong with the infrastructure below this street and the one around the corner on 2nd Avenue between St. Marks and 7th Street? Yes, I do. I was on NY1 with the medium sized water main break years ago and what ever is wrong is still very wrong. Watch my youtubes and there are many postings on this site and mayorbloombergkingofnewyorkblogspot.com

I usually delete abusive comments, this one is emblematic of the greed & stupidity that brought down wall St. & Peter Cooper is turning in his grave
cooper union is not-for-profit. they built that building so that they can fund full tuition scholarships to every student who is accepted. Many of those students are NYC residents. The school is trying to provide an first rate education to students who may not otherwise afford such an opportunity. yes so greedy of them.
The pres. of C.U. was on ABC news admitting that Cooper U. is a real estate magnate. Thank u for your comment because I will forward to the media & hope they continue to come here to see how abusive students are, I have removed some abusive comments & how your attitude reflect the greed and stupidity that brought down Wall St. and the self entitlement that created the mortgage meltdown. Any person with an ounce of humanity can see the truth. C. U. teaches greed not Peter Cooper's principles.
NYU mega dormed the East Village to death and NY Law, Cooper Union, The New School and SVA jumped on the mega dorm band wagon busting
through zoning. NYU uses it's not for profit status like a tax shelter to buy up, supersize and exploit our communities where ever they have expanded including
Stuy Town that was meant to be affordable housing not NYU student housing! NYU uses the term community facility to supersize and exclude the community
so I want community outreach resource centers in every building where they have done so! NYU doesn't need to abuse eminent domain like Columbia University to displace community members and small businesses and the mayor and socialite city planner are confused and think they work for these institutions
rather than for the people of New York!
We need our communities protected from greedy real estate magnates posing as higher ed and if something is not done you will have to
visit a recreation of the Village in Las Vegas or a museum!
I call Cooper Union "NYU jr." and I want to know when is higher education going to learning the meaning of the word "No!"?

My letter published in The New York Sun slamming NYU and Amanda Burden the wicked witch of the East Village, throw in Cooper Union's brutal exploits
‘City Set To Present Plan for Lower East Side'
Renaissance? I thought I was living in the East Village, not a bad Xerox of midtown [New York, "City Set To Present Plan for Lower East Side," November 1, 2006]. We have been mega dormed to death mostly by New York University but also by New York Law School, The New School for Social Research, and Cooper Union. Yet another NYU mega dorm and the tallest building ever in the East Village will be built and Saint Ann's Church from 1847 fell to NYU's greed and need to build yet another NYU mega dorm. Amanda Burden supports this dorm being the tallest building yet in the East Village. So far Amanda Burden has ignored our community pleas for zoning protection.
City Planning's incentives to developers in the name of affordable housing is a Trojan horse for developers to further supersize our historic area. The mayor and City Planning seem to care only for housing for NYU students and developers with luxury condos and mirrored hotels that reflect a history that is being destroyed. A community is no longer welcome. We have asked for preservation and protection of our long term community members, and if more isn't done to protect us you will have to visit a re-creation of the East Village, Bowery, and Lower East Side in Las Vegas or in a museum.
New York, N.Y.
The park has it's share of drug pushers but also more parents pushing strollers still there is something "dark and ominous" -- a vibe...I realized how much I miss Central Park and the reason I stopped going there is I blew out my knees and I can't run.
I spent so much time there on long distance runs and treasure the memory of crossing the finishing line for 26.2 mile marathon....
It is not just the gi-normous rats......Maybe after the renovations are completed that vibe will disappear...
Queens Crap rocks and I added this comment which includes abuse by Columbia U., NYU and Cooper Union
NYU that doesn't have to abuse eminent domain to get the job done. NYU mega dormed the East Village to death and so many other Universities followed their example in the East Village where The New School, SVA, NY Law and Cooper Union all have joined NYU in confusing the EV with dorm fodder and not a community.
The only thing John Sexton, best friends with every power broker possible, Mike Bloomberg and the wicked witch of the East Village haven not done is provide buses, NYU trolleys and trains to move us out to make room for these greedy evil real estate magnates that use their not for profit status as a tax shelter.
The division that handles anti-trust at the State Attorney General's office should be investigating these land grabs and abuse by NYU and Cooper Union because they are playing Monopoly and only this greedy administration that favors developers would allow this to happen.
Even Guiliani's city planner said "No" to the evil exploitive real estate magnate Cooper Union when they asked if they could supersize their little yellow Science building, supersize it and lease it for 99 years. I am told he responded "It is a shell game."
But Amanda Burden let them do this twice. Cooper Union is about to tear down the yellow building by the black cube and on the other side the sky piercing mirrored half empty condo building that reflects a history destroyed & a community no longer welcome I am told -- the land is owned by Cooper Union and they lease it. Ha Ha by a condo for 5 million dollars and know you are buying a leased property.
Around the corner Cooper Union just supersized it's old historic studio and it looks like a hideous ugly fractured aquarium that belongs on a Hollywood set of a bad B movie and not the Bowery.
After zone busters NYU and Cooper Union supersized down Third Avenue than came condo and hotel developers that were able to do so as well with the wicked witch mega millionaire socialite city planner's blessing.
Do you think you will read about this in The New York eminent domain Times -- no or just glowing lies and as much as I like the NY Daily News - Mort Zuckerman may have the same money manger Steve Rattner -- and they did a dishonest public relations piece for the socialite mega millionaire city planner saying she preserved the East Village when thanks to her stupidity and greed shared with all these developers they have destroyed the heart and soul and community of the East Village and Lower East Side. The Bowery looks like space ships landed on it and are illegally parked.
Burden and Bloomberg want the area to be an extension of Wall Street with a few token buildings.
The evil landlords at 47 East 3rd Street did a mass eviction for their greed so it just is in vogue right now.

Anti-smoking ads to stores? Anyone smoke a cigarette and get in a car and than kill people because they were drunk, how about drinking warnings?
I think of the horrific rapes and murders of Imette St. Guillien and Jennifer Moore, the countless victims of drunken drivers and so
many quality of life complaints including my own associated with bars and clubs like Webster Hall in the East Village where the community board chair owns many bars and CB3 is referred to as the community bar!
Time to have safety warnings involving drinking; nobody smoked a cigarette and got in a car and killed innocent people!

Vote Tony Avella front forward St. Marks Place, stream of consciousness on voting, the middle class, Yankee Stadium and breasts!
Beautiful flowers and from this angle I can pretend NYU did not destroy the historical beauty of most of what surrounded the park.

Mayor Mike and John Gambling
The media silences voices that are not their rich friends
so thank you Queens Crap!
Is City Council going to unvote themselves a raise and I am not just asking because of their lousy attendance record
Just go to this blog's search engine and type in Tweed, or City Council or corruption
They have not succeeded in murderer but they keep her prison her, fake trial, we all know even in NYC women speaking up face double standard or worse
From Albany to City Hall it is clear the people supposedly representing us take that privilege for granted.
It seems the goal of the rich & well connected is to shill for developers and silence voices outraged by corruption
New York is oligarch central. At least I can yell at Mike Bloomberg at City Hall and he appears to take it in stride...
from Albany to City Hall to our communities it is oligarch central...they don't want you to attend community board meetings, they don't want you to pay attention, just believe what ever they are attempting to sell you...

Traumatized? Stuck in fight and flight? When you are, you body is releasing too much adrenaline and cortisol. I went thru such a disturbing ordeal that when I finally literally moved my body could not reset it self. There were many symptoms including excessive hair loss and stomach issues as well as exhaustion. Rest and sleep is one of the most important aspects of healing and finding the reset button and good luck in NYC.
Subject: [Caregivingcoalition] National Eldercare Workforce Alliance Call-InDay
Please Call Your Representative Tomorrow, June 23, between 9am and 6pm ET.
Send a Message that a Strong Eldercare Workforce is Critical to Health Reform and Quality Care for Seniors.
Dial: 800-958-5374 and say the name of your Representative: (insert Representative’s name -- note: EWA members who have a system like CapWiz can automatically provide representative’s name—or—insert the following text: “Not sure of your Representative’s name? Go to www.house.gov and insert your zip code in the upper left hand corner.”)
Here is a sample message for your call:
“Hello. My name is ________ , I live in (city/state). I believe that a strong eldercare workforce is essential to health reform. I urge support of:
· H.R. 468, the Retooling the Health Care Workforce for an Aging America Act of 2009
· H.R. 1457, the Geriatrics Loan Forgiveness Act of 2009
· Expansion of the Geriatrics Health Professions Education and Training Programs under Titles VII and VIII of the Public Health Service Act
· Greater federal minimum wage and overtime protection for 1.5 million home care workers under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
By 2030, one in five Americans will be age 65 or older, 75% of whom will have one or more chronic conditions. Many older adults and those with chronic diseases do not receive the care they need because of an inadequately trained healthcare workforce, clinician and faculty shortages, and poor working conditions for direct-care workers.
We can strengthen the eldercare workforce by urging Congress to include the following measures as part of health reform:
· Increase the federal match for all home- and community-based services funded under Medicaid.
· Expand the Geriatrics Health Professions Education and Training Programs under Titles VII and VIII of the Public Health Service Act to increase the supply of essential healthcare professionals.
· Extend greater federal minimum wage and overtime protection under the Fair Labor Standards Act to 1,500,000 home care workers.
· Provide loan forgiveness for professional training in geriatric care.
· Support appropriate care coordination services under Medicare and Medicaid.
· Provide training and support for direct-care workers and family caregivers.
