Sorry, I had to scrap a blog entry that I was going to publish today for this news that I heard last night. It is in serious negotiations to close a portion of 5th Avenue in front of Trump Tower at 56th street. Come on guys, I get it that he is the president elect and all but to shut down one of the busiest streets in Manhattan? I don’t even drive for Christ Sake but lets be real here folks. Currently you can’t walk on the east side of 5th avenue between 56th and 57th streets (in front of Trump Tower) so do you think the folks at Tiffany & Co are really happy about this? Now we are cutting down a main artery to head south?
Oh well, at least the holidays are coming so we already know that midtown will be gridlocked so what is one more blocked street. Personally I think that we need to do like they do in London. If you car tag has an even number then you can enter London on certain days. Odd tag numbers the other days. This would prevent all those effin Brooklynites who ‘have to drive their car’ into the city…..”Oh wait Maria lives in Brooklyn……Please 9lb 8oz Baby Jesus let this be the one blog entry she doesn’t read.”
Memphis Folk – I realize that you may be wondering what the big deal is. Try closing off Poplar Avenue between Yates to Shady Grove Road. For my Mississippi readers – Shut down Goodman Road
Belize Folk – Close the Bowen Bridge or close the road from Ramon’s to Grief Airport.
Canada Folk – Oh feck it, you already have snow on the ground and you are driving your snow plows.
They won’t let the Irish march up 5th Avenue on St. Patrick’s Day now. See what you did Asian Fireman….
This was taken 1 week and 1 day prior to today. I included the pic of the President Elect because people are lemmings and will click on anything that has to do with Trump.
Keep it light.
