    Jeffrey, since you seem to have fallen in love with the RP chamber of commerce, will you be attending their moving sale on Saturday? I think they need to get rid of everything because they don't have anyplace to go.

    So i wrote to Mina Bloom about what Howdy said (i didnt claim those comments to be true or false) and asked if they were true wouldnt that make the article more informative and accurate? She said she would never include someones biography in a piece like that as it wasnt about her but instead about the action...I was a little surprised to hear that as i would think if you claim to be a journalist that you would want to examine the subjects you are quoting in your article. If the 606 blockers had been KKK members or in gangs, whatever, wouldnt that be relevant to the piece? If indeed what Howdy said was true, that this group had ulterior motives ($$$) and is part of a corrupt conspiracy, then i think it would be relevant. I realize that DNA info is not the NYtimes but in this era of fake news, we need to demand accuracy and fairness in all media.

Never question facts from NBC's forgotten childrens TV show star:) Ms. Ramirez helped organize this "youth rally". It's her paid job and advocacy agenda. Awareness of both is absolutely relevant. Inept DNAinfo reporting... Just a few years ago LSNA claimed credit at meetings and their own annual congress publication that Bloomingdale Trail resulted from their youth leaders advocacy to city. Now they're blaming it for gentrification. Forked tongue, like scheming politicians MM&R

  • Nan

    It is a co-op to the extent that the assessments are apparently based on the original share/percentage ownership assigned to units which I assume was established when the building initially became a co-op. I think that also explains why two units of the same size can have very different assessments.

  • Its a very expensive building to manage and maintain.

    The plumbing has never been updated and is being done piecemeal, its getting more expensive every year.

    Asbestos is an issue throughout the place too many jobs that require opening up walls also require asbestos abatement...very pricey.

  • PSA: if you get off by the new Aldi at Milwaukee and Leavitt, you can always use their bathrooms!

  • I don't think Aldi wants non customers coming in to use their bathrooms.

  • I mean, you can always buy a water bottle or something for like 50 cents. I personally shop at Aldi a lot so I never feel bad popping in to use their restrooms if I need to.
