No Human Being Would Stack Monitors Like This

As Dr. Venkman would […]

Its time to take a stand!

Read the above article for this to make sense:

This past Saturday December 22nd, I was reading a newspaper when I came across an excerpt written by a 60+ year old man, when this man yelled out, “Blame the Internet”!

I couldn’t believe what I just read. It was one of the most obscene outbursts I’ve ever read. There were 4 friends present around me who merely cursed at the man. I know the comment wasn’t directed at me, otherwise the man who said it, would be sleeping in his own bed comfortably, because I don’t threaten children or the elderly.

If this man is any indication of what we can expect of our elderly we are in a lot of trouble.

I have a theory on what’s causing much of the outrageous behavior by some of our elderly. I believe it’s the newspaper columns such as “Marine Park Bulldog”, and other similar columns available to anyone who wants to say anything about anything, whether its true or not, and rarely if ever, have to worry about the consequences of doing so.

Rivera Suites Ready to Break Ground on Knapp and Lacon Court

overlap.jpg

SSJ Development is ready to break ground on 3 sites in Brooklyn, including Bergen Beach, Knapp St. and Gerritsen Beach (Lacon Court), thanks to $100 Milliion loan from Amalgomated Bank.

The third project, which won’t break ground for several months, is planned for Gerritsen Beach (Lacon Court). The development, a three-story building with 64 units starting at $349,000, will be called the Riviera. The 3.25-acre site comprises 22 lots Mr. Jemal bought up over the past seven years and was once the site of a marina, a repair yard for boats, a billiards club, and a place where a local resident was collecting pigeons.

“It was really beat up,” he said. “It needed attention.”

Some residents of Gerritsen Beach said that while they believed the waterfront needed improvement, they were against Mr. Jemal’s project.

“It’s going to add congestion and change the character of the neighborhood,” a mother of three who grew up in the area, Margaret McCormick, said. Her husband, Kevin, said residents could do little to stop the development.

Still, they and other opponents are hoping that the cost of cleaning up the contaminated soil from the old boat yard will make it too expensive to build the project.

“What he wants to build is the equivalent of a 35-foot wall along a whole stretch of the waterfront,” Mr. McCormick said. “These are fourth-generation families living in houses on double lots. This isn’t Florida.”

Mr. Jemal contended that he is building within the zoning requirements for the area and that his buildings will add to the character of the existing neighborhoods.

“I’m reclaiming the waterfront and opening it up,” he said. “What I’m doing in South Brooklyn will be on line before anything they’re doing in North Brooklyn.”

The Jirovec and Fortunato Defense aka the I’m from Gerritsen Beach Defense

Both of these thugs are from the area, and I say “the area” because I don’t want to admit that they are from Gerritsen Beach.

Although they don’t represent Gerritsen Beach as a community, it seems like their defense strategies could be coined as the “I’m from Gerritsen Beach” Defense.

Im not bias […]
