Re: Yvonne Outdoes Herself - Transgender Bathroom Editorial

Yvonne, do you spend hours researching this stuff? A few deviants don't justify discriminating against all transgendered people. How's this: an 80-year-old woman was arrested for robbing a jewelry store in New York. It was like her 20th arrest. Should we ban all old ladies from stores?

Christopher Hambrock, Matthew Hart, Peter Steele, Louis Morales, Dennis Wayne Wilbert, Douglas Perry, Robert Colsinski, Russell Williams and Julian James. These men considered themselves transgender women and the one thing they have in common, they either beat, rape, or killed girls and women some in spaces that we call women changing rooms or restrooms. So, you are wrong. Stop throwing science out the window for political purposes. In the 1970s, people said they were a product of rape between outer space aliens and their mothers. Today, it is transgender. But no matter what generation, it is still mental illness.

I've visited a unit on that side, and you can certainly hear the light rail. That said, my kids grew up in a much louder environment and did just fine. And, because I can't resist:

I'm sorry, Yvonne, but if you read the actual interview (not a poorly-written blog post), the CEO says the mistake was in making a big splash about the policy - it was a red flag waved in front of every homophobe in the US. Target learned like so many before them that they should just stick to their business of selling Chinese-made junk and stay out of politics.

I agree with both ideas - eliminating seats in at least some cars, and more grab bars throughout the car. I dread being that guy standing in the middle with nothing to hold onto, swaying like a drunken sailor.

Here's a question/thought: I rode from Grove-33rd yesterday (not my usual route) and noted that very few people got off the train at Christopher, 9th, 14th or 23rd. Would it increase capacity to have "express" trains that skipped those stations and went direct to 33rd? This is a legit question, so there's no need to tell me what a dumbass I am.

Just a point of clarification on this: The Warren Street ferry is $5.50/trip if you buy a pack of 10, and I think the monthly fare is $220 - so if you rode it more than 20 days/month the cost would be lower than that. At that pricing, it's not a bad deal to get out of the PATH nightmare.

Did I miss something? Ferries still run. They cost $8 per ride, because they're privately operated.

You also have to get to them. That's easy for people in Newport and Paulus Hook; difficult for everyone else downtown; effectively worthless for the rest of JC.


On this, we agree... we do have ferry service. In fact, there are five ferry terminals from which people could hop onto a ferry: three are downtown, one is in LSP, and the other is in Port Liberté. But, I should note, Newport lost its ferry terminal after Sandy, and NY Waterway chose not to bring it back.

Oh, Yvonne. Where to start?
1. Fox News
2. Ohio
3. The suspect in that story is a bearded gentleman. I doubt anyone would buy that he identifies as a female.

Stop conflating facts, please. Neither the local arrest nor the Ohio story has anything to do with transgender issues.

There's a legal concept called "vicarious liability" that could apply if she was overserved...but most often it applies to bars that serve to people who they know are going to drive a vehicle, and then the person is in an accident. Somebody who gets loaded and does something stupid is usually on their own, legally.

I don't use one of those spots, but you're probably right. Seems like they're already in short supply on weekends, anyway. I think it reflects the general growth in popularity of downtown businesses - a lot of the hotel visitors won't park on the street because our rules can be...confusing.

Re: Jersey City to JFK and LGA

Yeah true. If money were my concern, I'd take PATH to WTC, then the E train to Jamaica, then the Airtrain. I've done that and the transfers are fairly painless.

Totally agree, and it's even more annoying when people respond with things like "my goodness it's only a mile, I'd just walk!" Every person and situation is different. But I know that sometimes I need to remind myself that I could just as easily walk as jump in the car for every place I have to go.

I don't know your situation, so don't take this personally...but for many people it takes about 15-20 minutes to walk a mile. Maybe we could consider doing that?

Not sure about a shuttle between the two airports, if that is an option I would 100% do that. If you need to transfer, your airline should provide some sort of service.

If not, here is what I would do:

AirTrain->E->WTC Path to Newark->Uber ($10 ride) $20.50
OR
AirTrain->LIRR->Penn->AirTrain $26

Airtrain $5
LIRR $8
NJT $13 (includes EWR AirTrain)

I hate transfers and try to avoid the AirTrain at EWR at all cost so I would recommend #1.


I hate all the transfers too, but there is a significant time disadvantage by taking the E to WTC instead of the LIRR to NY Penn.

Google puts the LIRR route at 90 minutes (tad optimistic in my opinion).

Taking the E to WTC, then getting to Newark Penn would be at least 100 minutes than still have another 15 minute or so taxi/uber ride on top of that.


You might be surprised as to how quick you can complete this trip. Honestly, you might even be able to complete it in 75 minutes, if the various transfers line up optimally.

On more than one occasion, I have done the complete door to door trip from my place in DTJC to JFK in 90 minutes, and that includes a 5-minute walk to Grove, and the ~10 minute transfer from the 33rd St station to Penn Station.

Pro tip: if you are doing this trip on a weekend day, make sure you buy the reduced rate CityTicket ($4.25, instead of the much higher regular fare) and save yourself some money.


Agreed - after nightmarish cab rides to JFK I'd pretty much given up on using it. I tried the train, though, and it wasn't so bad at all.

Democracy is messy, and part of the mess is listening to people who we think have spoken too much or too often. I can't agree with Yvonne on too many things, buy I whole-heartedly applaud her devotion to a city that was a joke to most people in the "nice" parts of NJ. I'm glad we both lived long enough to see this latest rebirth of our city. This would be a better town and country if more people were willing to mix it up in the public arena like she is.

It does appear that way, but I deal with senior insurance people all the time, and they are almost always well-intentioned folks who want to do right by their customers. Maybe I'm just not seeing what's behind the veil.

In the last few years the major carriers (Aetna/Cigna/UHC/most Blues plans) have quietly adjusted their reimbursements to address this - in other words, they pay the radiologists and anesthesiologists as if they were in-network. It's a sloppy system, and sometimes you need to push the carrier to do it, but it works. Here's the sequence to follow:
- call the carrier's customer assistance line.
- if that doesn't work, call your HR department.
- insist that they call their broker to get it fixed.

The system is totally dysfunctional, but most people just give up too soon. That's understandable because they or a family member have medical issues to deal with, but in this stuff the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

I'm pretty sure the OP is either a troll or a disgruntled Starbucks worker. Either way, here's the lemonade message that comes from his/her lemons:

- give your business to a local entrepreneur instead of a corporate behemoth.

The train that crashed originates in Spring Valley, NY, so New York residents could definitely have been affected. Nothing wrong with Cuomo being there.
