NY1 showed water main break 3 years ago - still a disaster 2nd Ave. 7th Street In my opinion Cooper Union's mega sized studio build caused this medium size water main break that looked like the East River came to 2nd Avenue. You can see a diverse group of East Villager including me interviewed.
The intersection still has not healed and is as dangerous as hell.
There years and the city can't solve this problem. I photographed a custom street conditions car courtesy of the tax payers parked in front of the crater and the city gov worker no where to be found.
Also note 2 small businesses there are now gone. See my other YouTubes from around the corner for the streets being a mess for years and my blog for photos of the area looking like a bomb exploded with Con Ed workers camped out and Bloomberg had not right to push a reckless tsunami of development city wide catering to rich developers including NYU, NY Law, Cooper Union, Columbia U., Donald Trump and every reckless idiot that insisted on busting through our zoning and weighing way to heavy on our infrastructure.

Mike Bloomberg's CityTime is Tax Payers Titanic and most be stopped from being renewed this September

I called John Liu, New York City Comptroller and a thorn in mayor Mike Bloomberg’s side because like me and so many New Yorkers, we opposed Mike Bloomberg denying us, the people of NY a referendum.  This issue divided New York and seriously alienated the people so it was no surprise Mike Bloomberg barely won.
But that is not why I called and left John Liu a voice mail at City Hall here in New York City this morning at six a.m.
You see CityTime, an Orwellian Time Clock that was suppose to save the City of New York big bucks is in fact a sham and is on it’s way to costing tax payers a billion dollars.
Why would I be writing about this now?
The renewal date for CityTime is September 2010 and CityTime must not be renewed.
In fact CityTime must be investigated.   Why?
How did a program designed to save the city money go from under a hundred million dollar budget run out of control?  Well for some mysterious reason CityTime needs countless consultants averaging close to half a million dollar salaries and at least one was reported to get a million and he happens to also collect a city pension.
Read my blog postings and see also how SAIC, hired to over see CityTime has scandals on a Federal level as well.   I wrote this based on Ali Winston’s piece in City Limits from two years ago and an astounding series by Juan Gonzalez from The New York Daily News.
