Re: NYC Marathon

I second this advice. The WORST thing you can do on race day is take the ferry to the start village. I made that mistake one year and ended up expelling so much energy navigating to the ferry, then being herded with thousands of other runners from the ferry to buses, standing in line, standing on the bus. It took way too much time and energy. If you're running 26.2 miles that day, do yourself a favor, and take a cab. Or get a hotel room near the start line and spend the night. Whatever you do, don't take the ferry. You'll end up feeling depleted before you even start the race.

I would recommend switching to the SI ferry option if you can.


This is bad advice, for two reasons:
- transportation selection is already closed, and has been for quite some time, and
- travel time via SI ferry (plus the shuttle from the SI terminal to the drop off point at Fort Wadsworth) is 90 minutes (minimum) and very chaotic, while the Metlife bus option is an hour, or less.

My advice, from having done this six times already, is to drive to the start line. That requires someone dropping you off, or riding an Uber or Lyft. If you leave JC by 7:45, you will be at the drop off point between 8:15 and 8:30. First wave takes off at 9:50, so those corrals will close around 9, so you would have at least 30 minutes to walk through the start village until you find your corral, assuming you are in the first wave. If you have a later wave, then adjust accordingly. If you are planning to do a bag drop (you really shouldn’t!) then allow additional time for that, as the village is chaotic and the bag drop area is far from the corrals. Also, another tip, don’t waste time standing in line to use the porta-potties. There are a ton of them inside the corrals and then some more on the way to the start line. A ton of first timers make that mistake and end up missing their assigned time as the corrals close so early.

doesn't sounds like you're "all for" these events. cause if you were, you'd know that pausing runners for traffic is ridiculous.

I am all for having these events. However i am currently stuck on Grand Street in gridlock now for 45 min. It is ridiculous that these runners cant be held at intersections to allow traffic to pass. All they need to do is pause runners on jersey ave and allow cars through.

Everyone on here needs to just stop responding to her. She is absolutely ridiculous but you can't reason with ridiculous people.

I will tell you why I don't buy the term pedophilia, it is just to pigeon hole the sex abuse to one group. It is not. According to the John Jay report, 5% were under 10, the majority was teenage boys. If that is pedophilia then the late Harvey Milk practiced pedophilia because he teen lover was 16 years old. Several months ago, I read about a man who left prison and burglarized a home. He end up raping the homeowner, a female of 84 years. He was going to rape someone female and the age did not matter. I am sure if the victim was 12 female, the press would have labeled him pedophilia, too.

I was thinking the same thing too, if someone broke into my home they might be able to find like $20 in quarters and whatever cash i had in my wallet, but that's about it. The fact she had that kind of cash lying around seems fishy.

Does anybody know anything about this place? They opened in place of Banyan on Bright, they're closed all day, but sporadically open at night and cash only. No posted hours, and kind of seem like they're under construction. Have been that way for months.

Re: Teacher Protests Disturbing Neighborhood
#12

I find this topic curious - My neighbors are calling the cops on these teachers?

I also live in the neighborhood and I hear these protests every morning too. I find it infuriating that the teachers are getting the brunt end - especially considering the trauma we expect them to anticipate and handle (read: shootings - which seem to be imminent), and that the solutions hasn't become let's find a way to inhibit this from happening (read: sensible gun laws). Instead the topic that I've heard thrown around quite a bit this last week is the idea that we should ARM these teachers (and what, expect them to act as security/body guards to children??).

We can't seem to give them a fair contract, and we can't seem to fund basic necessities in the classroom. :-|

These teachers SHOULD be protesting, and so should the students(!), they should be lighting the street on fire every day they have to deal with this. What we as a culture expect from teachers (and honestly, what we NEED from them) is absolutely absurd for what we offer them.

Paying the taxes that covers these teachers salary isn't just about funding your own children in the school system, whether or not they go to catholic school - it's about investing in the future of this community and this country. I don't even have kids, but I get that. Slashing education and/or nickle and diming teachers benefits literally no one, not today and certainly not 25 years from today. Please give these teachers what they need so they can continue helping us.

I'm not sick of hearing them protest, I'm sick of the fact that they need to protest.

Re: Cat Groomer Recommendation?

Yes I'd like to know the same thing! I have a long haired orange cat and he is very fussy, I hate taking him to the vet unless absolutely necessary because he gets so nervous I worry he'll give himself a heart attack. I can't justify going through that for a groomer, I'd like to find someone to come to my house and groom him here. I can get him to let me brush him and he'll let me, but beyond that I don't know what I can do. It's almost shedding season, if anyone has any recommendations, I'd also love to hear it!
