City of New York would have more money if they weren't paying for so many NYPD lawsuits.

According to records compiled by the Comptroller?s Office, New York City paid out a record $732 million to settle lawsuits in the last fiscal year

wsj.com: "New York City's $41 million settlement in the "Central Park Five" lawsuit..."

The city has agreed to pay nearly $600,000 to settle allegations that police wrongfully arrested a group of Occupy Wall Street protester

New York City has agreed to pay nearly $18 million for the arrest, detention and fingerprinting of hundreds of protesters, journalists, legal observers and bystanders during the 2004 Republican National Convention?

Long Island City Academy of Music, the first music school in LIC, was established in 2010 to address the area's growing desire for music education of the finest quality.

 Why doesn't Jimmy Van Bramer ever point the finger at NYCHA?

Is NYCHA at all responsible [due to contributory negligence] for violence that happens? What do you think?
If NYC Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer was concerned about NYCHA's gross negligence and depraved indifference when it comes to tenant safety
safety at Queensbridge Houses, he would kick NYCHA's ass about their neglect of unlocked lobby doors and light outages that ensure the get-aways of criminals.

What is little talked about, is that NYCHA has past history of deliberately leaving lobby doors unlocked to punish tenants for not "Volunteering" for Tenant Patrol [or whatever that protection racket is now called]. Crime victims' attorney should contact us for more information.

We report more NYCHA wrongdoings then he does!

Did you know that NYCHA has a history of
to punish tenants?

They have removed lobby door locks where tenants did not "volunteer" for Tenant Patrol duties; sitting as unpaid guards in the lobby. Supervisors of this protection racket got paid.

Regarding stabbed children:
we are waiting for a reply to our Tweet of:
"Tell us: @NYCHA @SholaOlatoye : how did perp get in building? Unlocked lobby door?"

Thinking of buying a Virgin phone?
They changed TOS to say:
"We may change any part of the Agreement at any time, including, but not limited to, rates..."

So buy an expensive phone and then rates may triple!

If you have a credit balance when you leave, Virgin confiscates it.

Shame on NYCHA

The NY Daily news has a report about a tenant who complained about mold. To get even they started eviction proceedings against her with such charges as unregistered dog. She was able to prove that her dog was registered with NYCHA. They used other phony retaliatory charges. We know this can happen, as we ourselves were subjected to same underhanded treatment by Queensbridge Houses management. We were [amongst other things] accused of having an unauthorized air conditioner. We were able to prove that we had been paying NYCHA extra monthly money for TEN YEARS for air conditioner electricity. Maybe a corrupt NYCHA official had siphoned off the money?

NYCHA Journal difficult to read for the visually impaired.

Does NYCHA care? Probably not!
