“Hey Ned, it’s Death [Please never address me like that again.], my Wife took a pic of a Manhatten street, Thought you’d like to throw it up on the site to show a WTF..”
There you go. WTF.
Now, anyone have ideas on what to do with the dead horse when we’re done beating it?

And I quote:
Planned service changes for Wednesday, January 26 through rush hour Thursday, January 27 are canceled due to the winter storm forecast.
MTA New York City Transit is at its highest state of readiness and has begun storm preparations to ensure safe travel across the city. We expect to run normal service on the bus and subway system this evening, but please monitorwww.mta.info for the latest service updates in our ‘Current Service Status’ box.
We urge all of our customers to take extra care when traveling during the storm, and please allow extra travel time.
Also, as noted by BrooklynQ in the comments of another post:
The Mayor has issued a Weather Emergency Declaration for NYC. The public is urged to avoid all unnecessary driving for the duration of the storm and use public transportation. For info on MTA service visithttp://www.mta.info. Any vehicle found blocking roadways or impeding the ability to plow streets will be towed at the owner’s expense. Alternate Side Parking, payment at parking meters, and garbage collection are suspended citywide until further notice.
Tonight’s NY City Council Blizzard Hearing, originally scheduled to be held at I,S. 278/Marine Park JHS, has been postponed due to the weather.
It will be rescheduled soon, and we’ll let you know as soon as a definite date has been set. And by then, we’ll have a whole new list of complaints!
It’s just a few hours into the latest snowstorm, with a few inches already on the ground, and neighbors are already reporting to Sheepshead Bites that they have not seen any plows. One reader tells us he drove all the way over to Sunset Park and did not see a single plow along the way.
Shall we begin Plow Watch, January 26 edition?
1611 Avenue Y - The future site of Marshalls' Sheepshead Bay branch.
The rumor mill has been churning for months, but Sheepshead Bites has finally confirmed that Marshalls department store will open near the heart of Sheepshead Bay – but additional traffic could upset neighbors.
The 27,292 square foot, one-story department store will be constructed at 1611 Avenue Y, between East 16th Street and East 17th Street. A source close to the deal told Sheepshead Bites that construction will begin over the summer, but the opening date probably would not be until 2012 or 2013. The source added that the property will likely include a rooftop parking lot.
Four local businesses, three of which have been open for decades, are shuttering to accommodate the development: Golden Touch Car Wash, Gulf gas station, KR & S Auto Service and the fruit and vegetable market on East 16th Street.
Keep reading for more details, reactions from the business owners and see potential traffic problems.
When renovations began in November at the McCay House (a.k.a. Hell House, a.k.a 1811 Voorhies Avenue), we worried that the original stained glass might be lost or destroyed in the construction. But Lisanne Anderson reports that it’s still there and doing just fine, as this photo proves. This is a photo of the interior view of the window, which Lisanne captured from an angle through a removed window frame, so those who worried about trespassing can be at ease. She previously snagged an excellent shot from the outside, which you can see here.
The Department of Education is plodding forward with their controversial plan to force a K-5 school within the extra space at I.S. 278, Marine Park Junior High School (1925 Stuart Street) – but locals are again gearing up for yet another fight.
GerritsenBeach.net reported yesterday that the DOE is beginning to lay the physical and logistical groundwork for a seperate school within the existing building, and we’ve learned that site inspectors visited the space. The move suggests that the agency has already made its decision and is not looking for community input on the proposal.
But that doesn’t mean they won’t get an earful from locals and the elected. As we reported Monday, City Councilman Lew Fidler and State Assemblyman Alan Maisel are blasting the plan. Upon learning of the site inspections, it sounds like they’re preparing for a challenge.
“[The DOE] thinks it’s moving forward, but I wouldnt say it’s definite. This community isn’t going to sit quietly, and neither are the local elected,” said Reeves Eisen, Fidler’s chief of staff. “They’re proceeding like it is [definite]. Around here, we think this is going to change.”
Chinese New Year Celebration in Kings Bay Y’s Social Adult Day Care program will take place on Tuesday, February 1, 2011 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
The Social Adult Day Care program is celebrating with a festive lunch, an award ceremony for volunteers and members, music, dancing, tai chi and a lottery.
Kings Bay Y located at 3495 Nostrand Avenue (between Ave. U and V).
Chinese New Year is the longest and most important festivity in the Chinese Lunar Calendar. Doors and windows are decorated with red color paper scrolls graved with wishes of happiness, wealth and longevity. People buy presents, decorations, food and clothing. Children receive money in red paper envelopes, which are said to bring luck and prosperity both to the giver and the recipient. Families thoroughly clean their houses to sweep away any misfortune. In 2011, the celebrations begin on February 3, 2011 as Chinese enter the year of the Rabbit.
Elected officials and community leaders are scheduled to address the program participants at 10:30 am.
Do you toss all of your tax information in to a grocery bag and deliver it to your accountant, happy to be rid of it? Do you later wonder why you cannot find your PG&E bill?
Each tax season, I receive an amazing array of stuff not even remotely related to income taxes from clients.
See the list of things NOT to give your accountant this tax season.
