They seem to be blaming It on combo of bored people and police say OPENLY they don't have the manpower to enforce  minor infractions like fireworks open bottle laws and etc...

Interesting paragraph (emphasis added)
Quote
Pigtown resident Cat Wall has counted 17 nights in a row of audible fireworks, starting as early as 7 p.m. and continuing as late as 4 a.m. Her dog, Halas, a 12-year-old chocolate Lab, has taken to hiding in the basement and refusing outdoor walks when it gets dark, she said.

Quick story. Every year at my brothers house we would get hassled by the police. He had a parking lot adjacent to his house we would use. One year a got string of 5k. We threw a rope over a light pole to string it up. We called the police on ourselves. They didn't know what to do when they arrived. It lasted 10-15 minutes.  :)

The City is totally upside down, the mayor knows that its his last term in office and said why not make a fool out of myself, but hay the tippish mayor didn't expect to de-fund the police and then have to turn back and ask for help!
   At this point what might help NY getting back on track is by tossing the governor and this nitwit Mayor De-Blasio.

  Don't know how he ended up in office to begin with, let alone a 2nd term.
and quite ironic he wanted to run for president! ALOL.. was he serious? Don't even think he would stand a chance inline with half minded runner Joe Biden.

If only the mayor gets pulled from office there's some hope, there's nowhere to turn.
 Call the police, OH the mayor wants to de-fund us, call the mayor, ha joke of the century, so call the governor, oh due to Covid-19 all of my resources and the cities resources are lacking so i cant help ya, were still on lockdown.

   At this point just cook up some popcorn and enjoy the show, no need for the Broadway shows to come back in action you can watch from home, and when you're ready to go to sleep, stuff some earplugs inside. And of course rest up for tomorrows show which will be bigger and better.

the source is in gracie mansion.
with all due sympathy for those who can't sleep, the main problem here is lawlessness. when the city chief executive at whose pleasure the heroes in blue serve has ordered LE to 'stand down', the message to criminals/lowlifes/vilde chayos etc. 'go have a blast, do whatever you please' לית דין ולית דיין. the danger in that goes a lot further than a few sleepless nights.
how many black lives were snuffed out in one night last night by gun violence racist police absence? 20 shooting deaths in one day across the city? how many were 'black or brown bodies'? do their lives matter? and how safe are we?
that must be "the source" that @CountValentine is looking for

on that note
Where are they getting all the fireworks?
if anyone knows the answer to this, I know some bored teens with no summer camp who would love some fun at 2 in the afternoon instead of 2 in the morning. can we hook them up?

At 10:15 the caravans will commence in the following locations:

Crown heights:
President and Kingston (on President between Kingston and brooklyn)

Flatbush/midwood:
Ocean avenue and Ave. J
(On ocean ave)

Borough park:
13th ave and 48th street
(On 13th ave)

Williamsburg:
Lee ave.  and Rutledge
(On Lee)

We will be taking over all the side streets leading up to Gracie mansion if  east end is indeed closed. We want to leave at this time to avoid issues of last minute positioning and setup and have ample time to coordinate and proceed on time.
We will be blocking the FDR on the *SOUTH BOUND SIDE* heading towards brooklyn since Gracie mansion is right on the edge by 90th street at the beginning/end of the tunnel.

All other locations out of brooklyn, please coordinate with those joining from those areas and commence a starting point to leave together.

Feel free to coordinate rides with each other if you dont have a car as well.
Please have your blinkers flashing so other cars approaching know where to pull up too.
Bring any and as much loud making material that you have.

Caller (Black) My neighbor did that and her kids were shot the next day.

DEBLASIO'S NYC - NYC Shootings Soar 358%!

New York City shootings over the last seven days skyrocketed by more than 358 percent compared with the same time period in 2019, from just 12 last year to 55 in 2020, according to NYPD data News 4 reported Monday.

A total of 74 people were wounded in the 55 shootings, at least 19 of them injured in more than a dozen shootings across the five boroughs on Saturday alone. Most of that gunfire was in the Bronx; four of those shootings were in Brooklyn, two in Queens and one in Manhattan, the NYPD said.

The rise in shootings has exceeded a troubling trend that started earlier this year and comes on the heels of NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea disbanding an anti-crime plainclothes unit that had focused on stopping people and searching  for guns.

Lawlessness and anarchy is the theme of the month!

It happened.

A few hundred angry new Yorkers showed up to a noisy protest in Manhattan late Monday night, sending a noise message to Mayor DeBlasio.

The residents are furious that DeBlasio has done nothing to stop the fireworks plaguing the city every night until 3-4 in the morning, preventing millions of New Yorkers from being able to sleep.

In return, the protesters arrived in their vehicles and honked their horns outside Gracie Mansion, to give the Mayor a taste of what it feels like to not be able to sleep.

Saw the videos and thought "Wow, that's nice. I hope the Mayor will finally do something"

Until I saw many frum yidden.

I'm still hoping for a crack down BUT WHY? Why are frum hidden protesting? Are we not classier than that? Are we not supposed to realize our place in golus- that Eisav is supposed to be in charge?

If anyone here was at the protest this question is addressed to you:

I understand the frustration the fireworks. I am suffering as well. I understand that protesting will hopefully show the mayor how the public feels about this.

But how do you want to portray the Jewish community in the long term?

Im usually on your side of the argument but strangely enough this time I'm not so much. Not sure why though. Maybe bc the whole society has taken a collective step farther into insanity and the frum community has just stepped along-while keeping a basic distance. In comparison to todays insane behavior from citizens, and politicians across the board, I think the frum people, mostly led by frum politicians, are in step.

But there is a time and place for everything, back then, the rabbis marched in Washington DC. This time around its being led by young politicians and askanim while veteran askanim, politicians and rabbanim  are quiet. Id be a little wary of this movement, even though I agree with them

That is not a clean comparison for many reasons:

1) The Jews during WWII could not have fought. Would not have helped. The Nazis Yimach Shemam didint ask nicely.

2) The more you try to be like the goyim the more they hate. Please read Divine Fury by Harav Avigdor Millet Zatzal.

3)this wasn't the most civilized way possible. It was done very low class.

4) our lives are not being threatened. There is no hatzolas nefashos. The fireworks are an annoyance.

5) Protesting like this is uncalled for for such a trivial issue. Based on watching videos and speaking to people who went many protested "for the fun of it." "Its a matziv" 

Back to what you said about German jews: the Nazis were animals. No opportunity to fight. Those who originally asked the question - why didint they fight? - were not frum torahdik people. Those who were there do not ask the question.

As you said "Dont compare the two" :

The Rabbis march on Washington was a revverved dignified Rabonim walking respectfully, saying tehillim, davening, respectful speeches.

Do you think [insert name of European Rosh Yeshiva Here] carried scribbled signs,  tooted horns or screamed and chanted?

As you pointed out look at who organized that march vs who organized this one:
Do you think the guy giving a speech is soooooo impassioned by the fireworks issue that he spontaneously ran to Gracie Mansion and needed to give a speech? He is a want to be politician hoping to get famous. (Or as DDF would say ___Made It!")
 There is a reason that no daas torah endorsed this.

The protest worked. DeBlasio listened. Jews weren't called out and it wasn't a blight on our community. We should never be afraid to protest or feel a need to stay on the sidelines, we have the same rights as every other American and if they don't like it they can eat it.
That said, you want to be classy/high road etc, maybe find a way to publicly thank DeBlasio for taking some positive action (for once...)

Stop worrying about what others will say or think. The haters will always hate. You earn the respect of others by sticking up for yourself. You think the changes happening now is because people are worried about what others will say or think. Don't be weak and stick up for yourself, be heard and seen!!!

Last night we had an argument and side bar to it was a boss asking you to do something. Many said a boss asking is the same as telling you (not arguing the point). All I could think but didn't say it at the time was what a weak, scared or whatever term you want to use individual. Stick up for what is right no matter what power you think an individual has over you.

Enough of leftist liberal rant!  ;)

I used to spend 1k but that was a few years back.
