    Another Bail out using our tax dollars – taxis!

    More taxes on the way I anticipated this coming when the city began attacking Uber/Lift – remember – govt FEEDS off of money. Taxis before UBER were shit – period – controlled by the city, over priced for crap, filthy service, no accountability – BUT existed BECAUSE the city made MILLIONS off of them – now comes uber and lift and WHAM free enterprise, better service and all of a sudden we upset the politicians money train and BOOM – uber and lift are bad! Well – here ya go NOW the city wants OUR MONEY to bail out their failed plan – basically, we, the people, given a choice…

    Your water and Sewer bill have Gone UP!

    Have you checked your WATER & SEWER Bill? The city RAISED the prices quietly! My bills went from $800 to almost $1200. How much more can we raise prices to pay for the citys wasteful spending? I am NOT against anything – ONLY the same failed ways of doing things in the past – there are BETTER solutions We make it too easy for our politicians to spend our money. Hold them all accountable for EVERY penny. We cannot afford another tax – VOTE NO TO THE 3RD AVE BID TAX! Save the $12090 – $1500 per year per building to start! NO NEW TAXES

    Talking points proved – a BID is useless

    Talking points proved that a BID is a useless TAX burden on all of us. You be the judge. The 5th ave BID web site – https://www.bayridgebid.com/ proves 100% that a BID is a waste of our tax dollars! THIS IS THE ADVERTISING THEY WILL DO FOR US? This site is ancient, childish and boring – hardly any way to compete with amazon – right bob howe? You would NOT pay me if i created this crap for your business and you SHOULD NOT!!!! But 5th ave merchants and owners paid over $6 million dollars for this!Our noibidonb3rdave web site is better than this! This is 12 years in the…

    3rd ave Bank Branch Closing

    DIME bank on 76st and 3rd ave will be closing their branch in January. This leaves another store for rent and PROVES our point – big corporations and their employees should NEVER support a tax on property owners. Banks can close branches at will and NEVER pay for a BID TAX. Signature and Northfield bank and their employees will NEVER pay for a BID TAX – WE WILL! These corporations should VOTE NO to a BID TAX that they will never pay for. Their employees should IMMEDIATELY STEP down from the BID steering committee since they will NEVER pay out of their pockets. FACTS not feelings my friends! VOTE NO…

    3rd ave Festival Successful?

    I walked the festival yesterday, paid my $14 for a sausage and pepper hero, ate Zeppoli, listened to music and chatted with friends. Was a nice day and it was fun. BUT was it successful? Lets define successful for a street fair and how it relates to a BID TAX. To claim success is NOT to take pictures of people eating or the people walking the streets. Successful needs to be how many of our fellow merchants PARTICIPATED and benefited from this fair. Was it worth their yearly dues? Did they make the money back? A BID stands for Business Improvement – hence did the fair IMPROVE our local businesses.…
