lol

Never ceases to amaze me. If I leave to Brooklyn on a Sunday morning before 10am, I can be in BP or Flatbush within 45 minutes. Outside of that, it will often take 1:15.

I don't even want to think about how long it takes from Brooklyn to you on a Friday afternoon

This is why I have none of my brooklyn relatives come for shabbos in the winter :)

FWIW - It's just as hard going to Brooklyn/Queens on a Friday afternoon.

Because our assemblypeople are an outspoken anti-semite and a self-hating Jew and they try to hurt us at every corner.

The state formula needs to be changed to cater to the unique needs of Rockland County, but they won't lift a finger.

Thank God, the people who they represent and one of them were utterly humiliated in the primaries this week.

Also, a few of the villages have ridiculous debt to pay off because they had and lost RLUIPA suits that cost them millions and they need to pay it off, and we end up paying, because we live there. They fought it (except Chestnut Ridge that got sechel) because they're vile anti-semites.

The rhetoric among some of them wouldn't embarrass the Nazis of the 1930s.

Here you have a sitting Republican Rockland County legislator, one day ago on Facebook.

Jaw dropping...

With an annual budget probably the size of NYC daily budget, and a political scene that isnít overwhelmingly tilted left, Cleveland can probably live without cameras.

But in NYC, thereís no way our city council and Bolshevik mayor would let go of the cameras cash registers.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Oh. There was no doubt this was coming. And theyíll come up with more ideas. It started with red lights, went to speeding, continued to bus lanes, and wonít stop there. Itís a combination of brilliant private business and politicians eager to fund their pet projects without being blamed for raising taxes.

I live in Danbury, CT.    You've probably driven through it.  We border NY State and I-84 goes right through our city.   Danbury Fair Mall is known by many.  I guess I'm one of the token gentile guys on here.  I didn't know when I signed up.    This is my favorite deal finding site, who knew I'd learn more about other types of poeple :)

Listening to some of the discrimination faced .   I can't help but also see a comparison to the Amish, Hutterite and Mennonite communities scattered throughout the U.S.        People tend to find them so quaint and otherwordly in a way.  I wonder if they were move involved on the local level in their communities if they would suddently become less accepted.

Now, for my own Pros and Cons of where I live.    I live just over the border and I'm about 3 minutes off an exit for 84, but in a quiet area.    I'm about 3 minutes from the Danbury Fair Mall.

when i'm looking for cheap clearance sales.  I have 7 CVS stores within 10 minutes each.  Lots of other retail.

We have a very diverse community.  40% White which includes sizeable 2nd and 3rd generation Italians, Lebanese Christians (we have 3 churches and 4 restaurants! and also Portuguese and a Large Brazilian community  (5 restaurants)   We have 2 Synagogues.  We have a somewhat clustered Jewish community centered around a lake.  It used to be summer resort cabins, but in the 60's everyone converted them into full time homes and they have remained in the families, even if just rented.
                                                 40% Hispanic, mostly Ecuadorian, Puerto Rican, Dominican, HOnduran, but I've met families from Peru, Chile, Argentina, Venezuela, Guatemala, El Salvador and Mexico.
                                                 10% African American and African
                                                  10% Asian.   I wish I had a breakdown by country, but I'd say India, Pakistan, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam and China

When flying I can choose from SWF (my favorite), HPN, LGA, JFK and BDL.   We often get retail stores quickly.  We had some of the first Primarks and H & M's in the country, oh, and we have a Stew Leonard's, yet Starbucks arrived late here, we don't have a Jamba Juice, also no Hobby Lobby or Ocean State Job Lot.
