  1. I have an idea that can prevent anyone else from dying from COVID. Why don’t we all just kill ourselves? Then it REALLY can’t spread. Enough with this paranoia already. It’s the paralyzing fear of this virus that will destroy us, not the virus itself. It has a survival rate of 99%. My 12 year old daughter has to sit at her desk in school without being allowed to get up while wearing a restrictive mask for 5 straight hours. That’s a REAL health risk.

  2. John Larkin was just named head of the Republican Party and now he holds a super spreader event at the board of education in the plaza. Shane on him

      1. No John Larkin is not running for CCP, Henry Djonbalaj is the republican’s choice. Corazon SpinEda-Issacs is the Spano’s chioce.

  3. I’m sure the bottom feeders that work at Larkin and City hall loved the news of this… no reason to close the building people rarely did their full hours BEFORE the pandemic outbreak now they have an excuse

    As someone who worked both in Larkin Plaza and City Hall- I’ve seen how awful the city workforce is under Mikey Spano.

    Let’s start off with Carol Daly- the queen of stench. Let’s put it this way Daly is a whale and a dog. She rarely came to city hall to do her hours before covid and when she was at work she spent more time eating and in the bathroom than doing valuable work. She came in whatever time she wants and left whatever time she wants. Now because of COVID she is in city hall even less!

    Then you have the bum Howard “Howie” Spreckman- who is a loser in his own nature and lives off his mothers legacy bc he has accomplished nothing in his life. He spends hours at the gym during work hours!!!! No one else gets away with this unless you are in w Mikey Spano. He runs to Mikeys puppet Deputy Mayor Levy when there is a problem and no one likes him.

    Carol Daly and Howie Spreckman are examples of the bottom feeders that Mikey Spano and his department heads give Special Treatment to bc of political connections!!! I hate working for these people Hezi. They are all idiots and have no sense of anything. If it wasn’t for Mikey Spano, Howie would be a cashier at a gas station and Carol would be eating crap in her house all day. Howie should grow some balls and deal with his coworkers without running to Steve Levy like a coward baby.

  4. Schools are closing left and right.
    Glad Q got to brag about the only big 5 district to go full hybrid.
    Thanks for risking our lives to fill your pockets and pad your resume.
    Go back to Rockland.
    Where’s the mayor?
    Hiring his druggie convict family member to YFD? Got rejected from. YpD. Must have been one low fukn bar. ..
    This city is the worst. Never on the level.

    1. The facilities dept should be gutted director Carr has no idea what he is doing his deputy is a jerk appointed by Carr because he was doing his daughter see pics in the v drive of their games in the snow the supervisors in that department do not do any Building inspection they go to building to have coffee with the friends and family they gave jobs as custodians who now are making over 100,000
      Carr put night supervisors in buildings like Gorton and Riverside to supervise two cleaners in the building these buildings an others have night supervisors in the building and they hired a supervisor to watch the supervisors at night . It is time to bring in outside cleaning companies saving the district \city millions and getting better results . Carr is a carpet bagger . Carney has no idea
