De Blasio ‘getting back at us’ by not plowing: UES residents | New York Post

It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft! Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.

“He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and Life-long Upper East Sider and mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio. “By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, ‘I’m not one of them.’ But we have everyone in this area on the Upper East Side. We have rich people, middle class people, and housing projects. We have it all.”

There appeared to be no snow plowing between East 59th and 79th Streets and between Second and Fifth Avenues. Modal Trigger The plow map as of 2:45 pm. “I can’t believe de Blasio could do this. He is putting everyone in danger,” said Barbara Tamerin, who was using ski poles to get around 81st Street and Lexington Avenue.

“What is he thinking? We’re supposed to get up to a foot of snow and nobody on the Upper East Side is supposed to blink an eye? I can barely get around and I’m on snow shoes! All of the buses are stuck and can’t go anywhere. He’s crazy. We need Mayor Bloomberg back!”

Hey, nemo, don’t Bogart the popcorn, okay?

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Meanwhile, here in Brooklyn I stopped counting after I heard the two-team plows pass my front door (granted it is a main drag, but there are drags that are main-ier) 12 times in the span of five or six hours, maybe. And it wasn’t even nightfall yet. XActually, if he only pissed off the UES, that is amazing as well as amusing. This was his first true test (Don’t believe me? Google Lindsay and the ’69 blizzard. That and the garbage strike are what ruined him.).

    Yes, yes, I know; he’s going to be a train wreck. At least one not fed to us by Nanny “Plutocrat” Bloomie.

  2. You know, growler, if NYC really were stuffed with The Smartest People In the World, as the locals seem to think it is, you’d have to wonder why they can’t seem to come up with a wider range of choices than either Bloomberg (a nanny-state fascist) or DiBlasio (a liberal fascist).

  3. I love the lamentations of the ‘big government’ assholes. The SHTF event can’t happen soon enough, so we can be rid of many of them.
    I live on a road that the state DOT is supposed to keep plowed. By the time they finally show up, one or more of us, living here, have already plowed it.
    They do a better job, but if DOT didn’t show up, no one would miss them.
