City Fines for Leafy Sidewalks

Poor Guest. The post “I Am Not Messy” on the slope boards raised some blood pressure and concerns for the locals. Apparently, having some leaves and a candy wrapper on your sidewalk earns you a ticket– despite how windy it was last weekend when the trash mingled its way over to your property line.

The people living off of 5th ave. are cranked after their whole block got ticketed. And it doesn’t stop there. Marie says,” It’s a ridiculous scam and a ticketing blitz to meet their f#%$ing quotas. Check out this very recent article (10/23) about the Dept. of Sanitation scam in Bensonhurst…Fight it and cite their quota system!!”

Have you been ticketed? Did you fight and win?.”
Get a word in, edgewise, on the boards.

Best Neighborhoods for Girl and Boy Watching

Some bright soul threw out a poll on where the best hoods are to see sexy people walking by. Brilliant. On looks alone, Williamsburg is pulling ahead. Way ahead. But Erikka doesn’t agree with the standings, adding “Williamsburg did nothing for me. Eye candy wise they were interesting but not always in a good way. The girls…well, all I could do was think about how bad their feet must smell from wearing cowboy boots in the summer and wondered why they looked like they were wearing Geranimals.”

Ouch. IMHO, the guys over there are always looking drunk and as if their converted loft doesn’t have a shower.

The Park Slope poll numbers are similiar to that of the Republicans running for the House…Rose says, “I agree about Park Slope. There are very few good-looking people over here. Though, I do think people over here are making more of an effort at basic hygiene and fashion than they used to. Ten years ago there were so many moms in the playground in mom jeans and awful wash-and-wear hair…”

Where do you think the boys are? the girls?
Tell us on the Slope boards.
Ah, surveillance.

Bank scootin’ boogie in Park Slope

Oh, get down, turn around, go to town… What draws loserdom more than a grown man veering around on a Segway scooter? How about a man passing out promotional brochures for a Park Slope bank on his Segway scooter?

What sort of attention is the bank trying to garner?

Cheflady broke open the local case with her post on the Park Slope Message Board:“Those stand-up scooter things have moved to the neighborhood. A bank is using them to pass out fliers. Oh My.”

Full disclosure: The photo here isn’t local… it’s from yet another bank, in the DC area, that apparently has taken a similar promotional tack (This guy so loves his job!). I’m hoping our Park Slope Segway scootee was at least wearing a suit and tie… But, if you’re playing rock, paper, scissors with transit—the Segway trumps the Bug-a-boo every time.

Holler if you think Segways will have a longer shelf life than Slap Bracelets.

Planning to travel to atlanta cheap flights, or the denver cheap flights, the deals can just not beat the tampa cheap flights and the difference is clear when you are purchasing airline tickets.
