Skip to comments.De Blasio ‘getting back at us’ by not plowing: UES residents
Posted on 01/21/2014 3:56:43 PM PST by lowbridge
It really is a tale of two cities this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!
Huge swaths of the UES had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, according to the citys own map of snow-plower activity.
He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political, said writer and life-long Upper East Side mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio.
By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, Im not one of them. But we have everyone in this area on the Upper East Side. We have rich people, middle class people, and housing projects. We have it all.

Welcome to the Jungle
no plowing - no paying! (taxes)
Maybe it’s just because Hannity lives on the UES.
Sound like he’s a graduate of the Jarrett School for Political Payback.
If DeBlasio was a Republican, reporters would find the one elderly person who died of a stroke when the ambulances were delayed by unplowed streets, and call DeBlasio a murderer.
Stay safe y’all.

Thanks for posting this, I’m laughing evilly! We notice he plowed east east of first, which includes the Gracie Mansion area.
Welcome to communism, NYC!
A good Fascist knows, if you want to start a ‘scandal’ that will get the attention of the greatest number of idiots, include the emotion of Envy.
If all the millionaires left NYC, it would some sort of post-apocalyptic hell hole. The parasites wouldn’t be able to survive.
IIRC, Sean lives on Lon-Giland.
Next, he’ll re-stable the horses there, on the facing side of Central Park.
New York is really doing its darndest to drive out its taxpaying citizens. It’s unfortunate, because too many of them vote for this crud and then are surprised when they get it and its not some academic game where they get to speechify and play radical like they’re still in college, but it doesn’t really affect them. Cuomo and Blasio are going to play for real, and that will drive these wanna-be radicals into other states for them to start their same old crud, because they never connect the dots or at least won’t ever admit that this is what their politics lead to when someone really means it for a change.
Wouldn’t surprise me in the least. I didn’t see the particular streets, but the Upper East Side has a few mega-rich streets and then the rest ranges from glass boxes from the 70s and 80s now lived in by young recent-grad upwardly mobile roommates working downtown, to miscellaneous modest buildings with working class Hispanics and struggling knowledge workers. So de Blasio’s zeal to punish may not work out well for him.
So no fed investigation for this traffic jam?
I wonder how many of the people quoted in that story voted for the dick?
“DeBlasio is trying to hurt the more wealthy people by ignoring us but theres no logic to that, Cisse said.”
Left wing elitists are morons. They think that the Marxist crocodile won’t eat them. You leftist idiots got what you wanted - a commie radical. Deal with it. Maybe you can hire right wing death squads to create political balance. I hear there’s contras in Nicaragua looking for work. Dial 911-OPENBORDERS.
De Blasio gets the Christie treatment? LOL. I am joking of course.
If you missed the SciFi episode of either “Night Gallery” or a similar show (perhaps “Tales from the Dark Side),in the 80’s or 90’s., then you don’t remember the story “RED SNOW”.
Well now you do!
RED SNOW JOB!
Communist payback is a bitch and you are now DeBlasio’s “BITCH”.
Why can’t they just take the Subway?
This should be a bigger story than a bridge.
Government retaliation against citizens is becoming really common
He will appoint neighborhood organizers (aka political commissars) who will force all of the residents out to shovel the streets, otherwise their property will be declared public domain and seized by the people’s republic of NYC government.
Hannity is leaving New York for either Florida or Texas.
Had enough of communists and RINO aholes like Bloomturd.
His show’s new title “Escape from New York”.
For those on the Left Coast, it is “Escape from LA” (and SF and Oakland, etc).
Calling Kurt Russell. We have a followup sequel to Escape from NY. This time you rescue Sean Hannity and a surviving group of conservatives so that they can establish a resistance movement in the South.
Probably few to none. But only a tiny percentage of New Yorkers voted anyway, and this group could certainly not have outvoted those who were driven to the polls in the union or church buses.
All of them, I suspect.
Any one with any sense should be moving out of the lice infested town—NOW!
This is a made-up story. I have spent the past few hours in lower manhattan and brooklyn, and nothing seems out of the ordinary compared to previous storms. I haven’t been up to the UES, but I looked at the snow map (the one cited in the article), and there does not appear to be any difference between the UES and anywhere else in the city.
Bloomberg was notorious for having the area around his house (on the UES) plowed faster than anywhere else — the people who are complaining today are probably just used to that favorable treatment, and are complaining now that they’re not getting it.
Have a nice day!
Got a few bedbugs too, no?
Yeah, but in fairness, Bloomberg had to be able to get out in a hurry to catch his jet to the Caribbean every weekend.
I’d bet my last dollar everyone quoted in this article voted for him.
Serves them right.
This is why conservatives must move to red states and starve the socialists in the blue states.
It’s us or them.
[ Government retaliation against citizens is becoming really common ]
First it started out Passive....
Now it is very much Passive Agressive....
Pretty soon it will turn Outright Agressive....
Hey... NYC... you voted for him... you live with it. Maybe next time a conservative might look good... if you stop believing the lies and open your eyes and ears.
He is selling out and leaving NY.
This Progressive idiot really knows who pays the bulk of the taxes, right? Hint, Wilhelm: it’s not the poor.
Heh, true. If memory serves, though, Bloomie was usually well on his way to the Caribbean before the first snowflakes fell.
Sanitation Comm.: Map Showing No Plowing On UES Was Due To Bad GPS On Salt Truck
January 21, 2014
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) New York City Sanitation Commissioner John Doherty said a map that showed streets going unplowed on the Upper East Side was due to a faulty GPS system on a salt spreader.
I wonder how the upper east side ever got plowed before the gps device ever existed.
In 2017. Contract and all. Georgia is also on the list. The wife jumped in with a suggestion. Heard it today around 3:30 EST.
You guys on the UES get to enjoy the beauty a bit longer! Why is everyone so negative about snow? He’s doing you a favor. UWS snowplows have created huge snowbanks that make it make it an expedition to cross the street. Enjoying it all anyway. Rejoice in the Lord always.
Thanks, snow bunny!
This is to be expected. He is the Hugo Chavez of New York City.
You get the politician you pay for.
This time you got a full-bore, scorched-earth commie.
We’ll see if New Yorkers have the sense to wisen up and vote differently next time around.
“Maybe you can hire right wing death squads to create political balance.”
Bwahahaha. Great line.
Maybe DeB will follow up with an announcement that due to budget restraints the City can no longer waste police manhours on safe neighborhoods such as the UES where there has been very little crime.
Neu Yuk Sh*ty deserves every abuse heaped upon them by their Commie Mayor.
Vote commie - get commied!
PS The Whaaambulance doesn’t make Neu Yuk Sh*ty calls - the increases in the cost of ammo for the tail gunner made it financially prohibitive.
