Judge jury and executioner. Have you ever done business to know what the cost of doing business is or should be in NY?
I'm not saying it should be this way.  I'm just saying it is this way and they knew that before they purchased/built apt in NYC

Anyone know the smallest thing about construction knows how awful the national grid thing is.  They always come 6 months late.  Hopefully this will bring some attention to this issue
That's the cost of doing business in NYC.

This is key:

"Inspectors with National Grid and the cityís Buildings Department checked the 33 locations involved in the investigation and concluded that the publicís safety was not at risk."

Basically all they did was try to expedite the criminally negligent city bureaucracy.
By breaking the law

So has anyone stayed here yet?  Supposed to go in March.  Relatively low points redemptions but the pictures aren't all that encouraging ...
Yes I did.  Nothing that special.  Service is beyond amazing though.

I remember when upper crust opened. Everyone thought how crazy over the top and expensive it was. Now it's considered second tier.
Did they change or everything around it did?

But in my humble opinion Cork and Slice is much better in all respects and roughly the same price.
Cork and slice in my opinion is a joke. And the menu is really really small.

For those coming to Maldives, be aware, for those coming from e.g. New York, the 10 hour time difference from Eastern Standard Time - can be very miserable. Maldives is UTC+5. Take along sleeping pills, so one can force sleep at night, and lots of coffee by day, to keep awake. Better yet, make a stopover for a few days on the way (where accommodation is not so expensive), so one can at least partially acclimatize to the time-zone change, so one can fully utilize the days in Maldives.
Didn't have any issues.

Why is there a difference? I've been banned as a seller, but my buying powers are still in full force
Because if u get banned as a buyer they may close ur seller

I do not, I have heard rumors but zero reason to put rumors on here.
Just because you are full does not mean you are making money.
Exactly.  But full means ther is a demand.  Not making could be mismanage or not enough buying power etc

They are on stop that is not the same standard as GG, POM or Seasons and they are in another area that can sustain cheaper options. Brachs was here and closed down for whatever reason. If he was making money hand over fist with his business model would he have closed??? I don't know.
Ok and do you know the reason he closed?  (I dont)  but he was full

Yes, they do understand and they also understand you have to pay a premium for one stop shopping.

really? what about Wal-Mart,KRM, Moshia, NPGS etc are they not 1 stop shop?

You continue to misquote. GG is responsible for nothing and owes nothing to anyone. Just pointing out a chessed opportunity. Because they love doing chessed. 
affordable and chesed are very far from each other. ppl are asking for an affordable store.

I do not agree with the bashing of GG here. They do a lot of chessed, I dont really care if their intentions are purely for PR or l'shma and I dont think the families benefiting from it care either. I dont care if the sponsorships and such are just a use of maaser or a way to deduct taxes that ends up benefiting the company. Bottom line is that they are helping people out and it is not for us to say they should be doing more. When faced with a crisis or a problem it is part of human nature to point at others and say that they should help, but it is a part of the Jewish tradition that we look inwards and say how can I help.
Again, I dont have the solutions, I just want the community as a whole to start working together to come up with solutions.
GG benefits greatly from this issue. Pablo escobar did alot of good as well. Would you live in one of his Apt he gave out to the poor?  not comparing obviously ...

GG- is doing some good to hide/cover up the bad.

This is a very narrow minded view. GG is great for five towns because there is definitely a client base for them. Does that mean everyone can now afford their prices? You really think they are catering to 100% of Far Rockaway/ Five towns?   Odd, cause here I am delivering tomchei shabbos every Thursday night so i guess its not 100%

They portray themselves as the all caring company, that takes care of its community. Clearly they are not. Theres a large part of the community that needs more affordable shopping then seeing another GG tshirt on another sports team.

For the record, I always bought my grapes in Brachs. Yes their produce wasn't as great but the price was right for what i was getting.

said perfectly.  "They portray themselves as the all caring company, that takes care of its community. Clearly they are not."

I can't imagine any of you who are so against GG are actual 5 towners. They are perfect for the 5 towns. Great service, fresh, quality foods, convenience, a nice, clean shopping experience, are all things that 5 towners are more than willing to pay a premium for, just like anything else. They put a lot of money into their business, and it shows. There is good reason they are so successful. Their responsibility to the community is not to make shopping affordable for those who cannot afford it, their responsibility is to meet the needs of the community, keep up their high standards and continue to be the well oiled machine they are. The fact that they are good people who give back to the community who supports them is an added bonus. It's mind boggling to me that this is where people are directing their hate.
alot of the community is not wealthy. When we say 5towns  we mean far rockaway as well
