If you are going to be republican, be republican. Instead as the city was getting “better”, homelessness and evictions rose.
The Supreme Court ruled that Americans have the right to travel to any state they want to and apply for welfare.

In short no mayor can restrict Americans or any other legal residents moving into NY.


More prisons and police cost more taxpayers money and all they would do is breed even more gangsters.

During the colonial era there was no such thing as mass incarceration. Minor crimes got you fined, no money to pay the crime and you got flogged. Serious crimes got you the death penalty. The Quaker’s pushed for an expansion of prisons. That has made the US number one in the world in incarceration and has done nothing to stop violence here.

The main good things Bloomberg did was rezone the city for development and make it more tourist friendly. The city certainly needed the money. But he did nothing for the root causes of crime, homelessness, neglected the MTA, etc. Tourism out a strain in the city Bloom erg did nothing address. Pataki, Giuliani, and Bloomberg weakened the rent stabilization laws and essentially gentrified their white working class base straight out of the city.

A large chunk of those people moved to the suburbs by choice. Italian-Americans, Irish-Americans, Greek-Americans, etc. are high earning groups

It would be nice if they decriminalized shooting of gang members. Everyone would win in that situation

Ritchie Torres for Mayor

That's the only logical candidate in the future.

I might slide out of my bed to vote for him if he ever Runs.

Gotta hear him spit his Game first.

They were all run out of town by The Baseball Furies, the Lizzies, the Boppers, The Electric Eliminators and The Boyle Avenue Runners. Those Lizzies were a bunch of bad bi*ches.

That NYPD union, is the same union that is always looking for a way to never ever have an officer face the music, for misdeeds and trampling on everyones rights. Nice guy, hey?

Them guys were probably not even Trinitarian. Just talking smack.they shouldn't have returned to the scene, dumb move. I hope they can lawyer up.
You would be singing a different tune if it was you one day getting a beat down by a couple of gangsters and an off duty Police Officer happened to walk by to save your life.

They can apply for welfare but isn’t it a stupid law in our nys constitution that states everyone even non nyc residents are entitled to housing

No way should people from other states come here and take away nyc taxpayer funded housing from New Yorkers. Nyc residents should be the priority first, I have a friend that works at shelters and familes from out of state enter our homeless system to get first dibs on housing. Even though they had housing in their home city but they claim DV and some just come here to try for a new life and pursue their dreams on nyc taxpayer dime.

This will in turn never lower our homelessness stats, they will always keep on coming. Plus the gentrification that is still happening pushing out native New Yorkers. The city can try to build all it wants but it will never be enough
