Brooklyn's Sunset Park is a community that needs more work (1), has a significant Hispanic communityRead More including Mexican (2), and you'd be in Brooklyn! Near subways, to transport your workers, near highways to transport your product ... and lots of underutilized factory & industrial buildings near the underutilized waterways (3). Views of the Statue of Liberty (no, really!), ferry travel to Manhattan. (1) The median household income in 1999 U.S. dollars was $30,152, and the median family income was $31,247. The per capita income was $13,141; 27.9% of individuals and 26% of families were living below the poverty line. (4) (2) By 1990, Hispanics comprised 50% of Sunset Park's population, rehabilitating property values and developing a thriving community. There is an abundance of Hispanic restaurants and businesses along 5th Avenue. (4) (3) The neighborhood has access to three limited-access highways; the I-278 (Gowanus) and NY 27 (Prospect) Expressways as well as the Belt Parkway. Five New York City Bus bus lines serve Sunset Park: B9, B11, B35, B63, and B70. Three subway lines run through Sunset Park. The BMT Fourth Avenue Line (D N R) has stations at Prospect Avenue, 25th Street, 36th Street, 45th Street, 53rd Street and 59th Street. The BMT West End Line (D) has a station at Ninth Avenue. The BMT Sea Beach Line (N) has two stations at Eighth Avenue, and Fort Hamilton Parkway. For some time, New York Waterway service was available at the [closed] Brooklyn Army Terminal to Pier 11/Wall Street, the East 34th Street Ferry Landing, the Sandy Hook Bay Marina, or Riis Landing on summer Fridays. Ferry service was created in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks when the Gowanus Expressway and New York City Subway were at capacity. It was free from October 2001 until April 2003, when the Federal Emergency Management Agency announced that it could not subsidize the service anymore. Then, until 2011 it was operated by the Red Hook, Brooklyn-based New York Water Taxi company on its Rockaway/Sandy Hook route. The Water Taxi service from the Brooklyn Army Terminal was part of the crucial contingency plan during the 2005 New York City transit strike. Much of the traffic between Brooklyn Chinatown, Brooklyn Satellite Chinatowns, and Manhattan Chinatown is handled by privately held minibus known in Chinese as "VAN 仔" and in English as "Chinese vans." They travel down 8th Avenue from 43rd Street to the 61st Street ramp to the I-278 bound for Manhattan and Queens. (4) (4) From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sunset_Park,_Brooklyn

Voting at PHYSICAL polling places. Now there's a component of elections that is antiquated andRead More should be done away with. Once Al Gore invented the internet we had no further need for PHYSICAL polling places - except for those who have no internet access or those like my mother-in-law who do not have a computer or understand the internet. Most of the country should vote on-line from the comfort of their own keyboard. The big question is WHY don't we?? Well, you could fret that the Federal Government might be incapable of building such a site, based on recent events. But the REAL reason is that to go to a website to vote you would have to positively IDENTIFY yourself. And, the left certainly would not want to create such a hardship on their fine, upstanding constituents.

Big_E April 18, 2014 at 09:04 am
What is the purpose of showing ID to vote? In order to vote here in NY, first I need to know whereRead More the polling place is. For me, it's an Elementary School on a side street I have never gone to before, or passed before when driving, except on Election Day. Then I need to know which election district I am in, as there are 2 or 3 EDs at the polling place. Then I go to the table, give my name, which if it's there, I have to sign my name, and they compare the signatures. What would showing ID do, if I still have to sign in? All it does, it slow down the process as people have to dig out their ID. Have you ever been behind a woman writing a check at the supermarket? It could take several minutes to find he wallet and her license. SO what does Voter ID do? Makes people wait. The lines get longer. People get discouraged and leave the line without voting. Republicans have restricted early-voting in areas where it's available. From 10 days, to 6. What 6? Oh, Monday to Saturday. Many poor people work 6 days a week, and have of only on Sundays, when they go to church and shopping and such. Also a time to vote. Nope, Sunday is now cancelled. Never needed a driver's license because you take the bus or subway? You need to go to DMV. DMV is only open Monday to Friday until 5pm. Closed holidays. Never needed a passport because you can't afford to travel overseas? Go to the post office! Oh sorry, closed Sundays...

Tom you are obviously an internet TROLL! And Genius I never said she would be a GOOD Leader!!! IRead More simply stated she might have put a stop to or slowed what has happened to this country. Given the fact that she certainly was well aware of all the players in Washington DC. But this of course of my own opinion and I am a realist and understand that there are those that believe there is NOTHING WRONG with the state of this nation. Of course I might also believe those individuals are living in Egypt on Denial!!! (Hint: Read it fast it makes a funny kind of sense!) But again that would be MY belief. Shhhh Please don't tell anyone in the Government though that might disagree!!! Lest they send 5 fully armed Swat teams to my little spot in the world all of those Swat members being fully armed with the latest in Anti Terrorist weaponry to storm my little home that doesn't have any kind of a weapon unless you consider my 1.5 year old clownish French Bull dog some kind of evil canine??? LMFAO And after they kick in all my doors and windows all they will find is an old kitchen scale that measures food weight and calories!!!! OMG and you know it's the likes of individuals such as myself, middle-aged women that are most certainly the biggest threat to this Country!!!! But take away all the sarcasm and right here you will find a person who will die to protect my civil rights and those of my fellow American. Because I am one of those American's that when I see the someone's civil rights being violated by the Government, or Federal Law enforcement, or even local law enforcement officers. I will stand up and speak up for that person. And I will not shut up and just go away and mind my own business. Because I do believe and Know that to do NOTHING means I am freely agreeing to give up my own rights. And that is never going to happen!!! So YA I am a very proud 54 year old troublemaking military vet that is also a staunch supporter of the US Constitution and will commit civil disobedience making sure it is not blatantly violated in my presence. And there never is a bad day for a REVOLUTION!!!

To clarify before someone jumps - the major drug control legislation did come about in 1970 as aRead More reaction to the widespread (both real and perceived) use and abuse of recreational drugs.

Here's the story I posted this morning and was censored by PATCH Pistol Turned to ‘SubmachineRead More Gun’ By Clueless Media April 15, 2014 | Filed under Constitutional Issues,corruption,Culture,Culture Of Corruption,Democrats,Dumb Criminals,Gun control,Liberals,Media | Posted by Warner Todd Huston Once again we get proof of how mindless and clueless the media is, how they don’t fact check, but just mindlessly pass on each other’s bad work ad infinitum. This time it happened with a story about a criminal who used a .22 caliber pistol in a crime but one clueless reporter turned it into a “submachine gun” and hundreds of his mindless colleagues followed suit passing the lie on and on and on. Clueless reporter Darryl Holliday of DNAinfo Chicago, a website that caters to local news, reported on an incident that was perpetrated by a man from West Garfield Park who began wielding a .22 caliber pistol in a grocery store because he didn’t want to pay the 22 cents tax on a bottle of pop he was trying to buy. Holliday “reported” that the crook “pulled an Intratec submachine gun out of a Gucci satchel,” and in the next paragraph again claimed the piece was a “submachine gun” saying, “Officers arrived on the scene shortly after to find Shelton’s Gucci bag open on the counter as well as 15 bullets in the blue steel .22-caliber submachine gun–eight live rounds in one magazine, five in another and one in the chamber, according to court documents.” Of course, it is clear that reporter Holliday doesn’t have any idea what he’s rambling on about. The .22 caliber Intratec pistol is not a “submachine gun. It is a semi-automatic pistol like every other semi-auto pistol. A submachine gun is an automatic rifle that uses pistol cartridges instead of larger ones such as rifle or armor piercing cartridges. A one-hand-held version of this weapon is called a “machine pistol,” but it is also fully automatic. The Intratec pistol used in this crime is not a fully automatic weapon, however. It is semi-auto-meaning it fires only once when the trigger is pulled. It does not expel a stream of bullets like a fully automatic weapon does. Yet, as soon as this story went live on April 13, dozens of other so-called news outlets took up the claim that this dolt used a “submachine gun” in his crime. All one need do is put “Nahshon Shelton submachine gun” in any search engine and dozens of so-called news stories will be revealed saying that the criminal used a “submachine gun.” It all just shows that whenever you see a report on guns in the Old Media establishment, you should not trust it. They don’t even know the proper definitions of firearms terms and from there all their “facts” are suspect.

It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.
