A Guide to Union Square Park

Happy Cathie Black Friday. Attention fair-weather shoppers: any lingering rain should cease by 1 p.m., according to the Weather Channel.  Here’s what we read.

In Union Square Park, an artist and self-appointed anthropologist who calls himself Normal Bob Smith has spent years as referee, ringmaster, curator and chronicler of the cast of regulars who who consider the park their living room. There are Junky the Barbarian, Pretty Boy Jake and Green Graver Girl, for starters. Then there are the categories of park regulars, which include scenesters, peepers, fundies, gravers and Griswolds.

Normal Bob has them all charted out. His maps show that peepers gather at the south side of the park, so they can blend in with pedestrians while peering under the skirts of women sitting on the steps. The gravers — Goth-ravers who usually dress in wide, black Tripp pants — gather nearby, near the statue of George Washington. The drug addicts do their nodding in the rear of the park, on the benches toward the east side. The Griswolds, or naïve tourists, gawk at it all from the periphery. [NYT]

Chancellor Watch

Elissa Gootman of The Times tries to figure out why the mayor’s appointment of Cathleen P. Black as schools chancellor has engendered so much more resistance than his appointment in 2002 of Joel I. Klein, who was only marginally more qualified.

L’affaire Black, Ms. Gootman concludes, has become a proxy for what New Yorkers think of the mayor and his imperial, to-heck-with-term-limits governing style. “You can’t separate her candidacy from the mayor himself,” one public policy expert says. “A newly elected mayor who had just gotten mayoral control had a much broader mandate than he enjoys now.”

Meanwhile, as the state education commissioner considers whether to allow Ms. Black to manage city schools with the help of a seasoned educator, Chicago principals who have a similar arrangement advise against it. [Daily News]

Crime & Public Safety

The most serious crimes — murders, rapes, robberies — are all up so far this year, even though lesser crimes continue to decline. Some skeptics see this fact as yet another piece of evidence that the police are fudging crime statistics by downgrading minor felonies to lesser violations that are not counted in the figures. [NYT]

Michael Brea, the actor accused of hacking his mother to death with a sword in Brooklyn on Tuesday, tells The Daily News: “I didn’t kill her. I killed the demon inside her.” And he calmly describes the drawn-out killing in excruciating detail. “I didn’t want to kill her right away,” he says. “I wanted to give her time to get right with God.”

Transportation

There is a dress code for New York City cabdrivers. Seriously. Its provisions include no tube shirts; no tank tops; no bathing trunks. But the rule has long been seen as at once overly specific and underenforced. Now, taxi regulators are issuing a new, broader dress code, in the hope that it can be more widely followed: all cabdrivers, the new code states, must “present a professional appearance.” [NYT]

Housing & Economy

By 10:30 Thanksgiving morning, a line of gaunt figures clutching bags of belongings stretched 300 long outside the Church of the Holy Apostles in Chelsea. This was the scene at soup kitchens across the city on Thanksgiving Day, with unemployment at 9.2 percent, home foreclosures at record levels and the chill of winter fast approaching. [Daily News]

The rampage of foreclosures that ripped through a small slice of Staten Island two years ago may be over, but it left behind a street littered with boarded-up homes, for-sale signs and broken dreams. [New York Post]

A Williamsburg kosher food company is locked in a battle with former workers who charge they were stiffed out of overtime pay — and then fired when they complained. [Daily News]

Government & Politics

Sales of bootleg cigarettes are costing the state as much as $20 million a month in lost tax revenue. [New York Post]

People & Neighborhoods

In his NYC column, Clyde Haberman of The Times tries to view the Thanksgiving Day Parade from the prime viewing corridor of West 61st Street and finds that just as it was last year, the street is privatized for the benefit of guests at Trump International Hotel and Tower and residents of fancy buildings on the block. Commoners are sent packing.

Elsewhere on the parade route, the family of a Long Island house painter ensures a good view by bringing its own scaffold to West 69th Street. [NYT]

A Tiny Restaurant Ceases and Desists, but …

Patrice Carter and Doreen Simpson tasted the love, though briefly.

Their in-boxes overflowed with e-mail in early October, just days after City Room visited A Taste of Hawthorne, the West Indian-inspired restaurant run by both women out of Ms. Carter’s backyard in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens in Brooklyn on Saturdays and Sundays.

Neighbors who had enjoyed the women’s inexpensive salmon sliders, sweet potato fries and intimate dining atmosphere piled on praise. Hungry strangers said they were eager to stop by for a bite.

The health department, it would turn out, was less enthusiastic.

In an e-mail on Oct. 5, the agency asked Ms. Carter and Ms. Simpson to “cease and desist” from operating their backyard restaurant, which lacked licensing from the city. An inspector followed up with a visit to Ms. Carter’s home a few days later.

In less than a week, A Taste of Hawthorne went from a buzz-worthy Brooklyn haunt to a shuttered afterthought.

“We went out with a bang,” said Ms. Carter, who insisted that she and Ms. Simpson had planned to close up shop for the season even before all the unexpected attention put them in the health department’s spotlight.

Ms. Carter, along with the help of her longtime friend Ms. Simpson, opened her home’s kitchen and cozy backyard for business in August. Every Saturday and Sunday, the two prepared comfort foods inspired by their mothers’ West Indian cooking, like jerk chicken and black bean veggie burgers topped with roasted red peppers and an avocado purée.

Word-of-mouth spread quickly among neighbors, friends and friends of friends, who would stop by and ring the buzzer to Ms. Carter’s ground-floor brownstone apartment. They would lounge comfortably in the backyard, seated in wicker chairs or around a communal picnic table.

Now Ms. Carter and Ms. Simpson are contemplating a new culinary odyssey. Inspired by the encouragement of their customers, they believe there is an opportunity to open a formal restaurant in their neighborhood. They plan to make a final decision in the next four months.

“If you have a dream or a passion, you just have to move forward with it,” Ms. Simpson said.

Ms. Carter agreed.

“Somehow,” she said, “I don’t feel like it’s over.”

A Happy Thanksgiving to ‘Sad Person’

The other day, we asked readers for Thanksgiving horror stories. We got tons, including some of the most hilariously harrowing domestic tales we’ve heard. But we also got this, from a commenter who posted under the name “sad person”:

My Holiday horror story is that every year I am reminded that my family doesn’t want me and I don’t have any friends. I wish the world wouldn’t stop for eight weeks every year and I could just be in peace.

Sad person’s cri de coeur touched something in our commenters’ hearts. Here’s what they said to him/her:

Dear sad person,

I hope this holiday season isn’t another turkey for you. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite: all the family and festivity without the greed of Cashmas.
— phil


I feel really bad for “sad person.”

You might be surprised who wants you. Give it a chance and hang in there.

— sarah strohmeyer


Dear sad person: I once had a Christmas all by myself (too long a story) — it was awful, so I know. I know now that I should have gritted my teeth, left the apartment and volunteered somewhere, but I was new to New York and didn’t know how to go about it. Never mind missing out on the food and the family/friends — anything to get you out of the house, even though it takes the most enormous and heroic effort that no one else will ever know you managed, is the best recipe for a difficult “holiday.”
— Olivia, Rhinebeck


Sad person … you touched my heart. I know about being unwanted and alone. I am sending you a big hug.
— carol


Sad person, I am sorry. The holidays are overwhelming with both real and perhaps all too frequently feigned joys. Hoping for a turn for the better for you.
— marymary


I’m worried about you, sad person. You’ll be in my thoughts.
— Nancy Lobao


A note to sad person. What you say about your family may be true, but I certainly hope not. However, remember, if you want a friend you have to also be a friend to someone, too. It’s not a one-way street. Be kind to someone who is lonely, do a good deed for someone in need, do volunteer work at a hospital/charity, and smile at everyone you meet. You will make people feel very special and you will feel wonderful for doing it.
— Wally Wolf


Dear Sad Person: Stop feeling sorry for yourself. You have a computer so you must have a job and a place to live. Go to the shelter in your neighborhood and spend the day dipping food for the homeless, for whom that plate of food will be all they eat that day before hitting the street and trying to find a warm place to sleep. You’ll feel like a millionaire after that. No wonder your family doesn’t want you. Get a life and take something to the party besides sadness. There’s enough sadness in the world without your dragging a sack of it around.
— betty


To Sad Person: Makes me wish more people thought of their friends and acquaintances who might be alone on Thanksgiving, and invited them to theirs.
— Karen Anne


Sad person:

You have a choice. You can wallow in your sorrow, and spend the day feeling miserable, or you can get out of the house, volunteer at a nursing home, soup kitchen or other place, and do your best to make someone else’s Thanksgiving joyful. If you choose the latter, you’ll find that your Thanksgiving will be joyful as well. I’d choose to spend it at an animal shelter, feeding animals their own Thanksgiving dinner.

Best of luck.

— Chris Shustak


Sad Person–

I feel bad for you and I know that if you have the gumption to write into The New York Times for the world to see your sadness, then you have the gumption to go out for dinner on Thanksgiving. When I worked in a 24-hour diner, I loved the holidays because my “regulars” would come in. We had Thanksgiving and Christmas together! I still love each and every one of them. Go find a diner (or your other favorite restaurant) and have a great time. There’s a waitress there holding coffeepot, waiting to hear your stories. She’s glad her friends thought to come in to see her on Thanksgiving.

— Daisy


Sad person, I can totally relate. It’s only a day. Don’t worry about it. Find a food you like or something, and a movie you like or something, and promise yourself a good treat, like a big walk in a beautiful park on a day you can call your own Thanksgiving. Even if you don’t have friends or a family that cares about you, you are still connected to your fellow humans and we need you. You’re not alone.

— Heart sad person


Wow … To Sad Person, and everyone responding in kind, I hear you. I hope you’ve been able to take in the loving and humanistic thoughts expressed to you today. It’s good that you could reach out. I remember when all I could do was to keep breathing; reaching out was not possible. Life can be terribly hard and painful, and some people just don’t understand that. I appreciate your drawing my attention to the lonelier people in my midst. Keep breathing, if you can. Keep reaching out. As you’ve seen today, most people will be kind. Any engagement you have with another person who needs help can be a good thing. Here in SF, I help tourists. I have simple, helpful interactions that really make a difference. Wherever you are you can make a difference, and you don’t have to ‘hide’ — go to an animal shelter. Offer your kind touches, your soothing voice.

The very idea of “family” can be painful, for so many reasons.

Thirteen years ago, I volunteered to serve children who were in foster care. Their extended family had effectively abandoned them. Some of them are now doing O.K.! With no one close to show them how, they are creating a new way of life. Sometimes we need to cast off what we were taught, little by little, free ourselves of some of the weight of what’s been done to us. Scars and terrible psychic injuries are often so deep they’ll never be expunged. They shape who we are — that’s what haunts me; I never got to be the person I could have been. But sometimes, with help, we can learn to live with that damage, if we can get away from those who caused it. I feel for those physically trapped in such cycles as much as those who are psychically trapped.

I got away and had lovely Thanksgivings with:

  • My high school teacher’s family; she had moved from California to New Jersey, and I had a lovely evening with her imperfect family.
  • My wonderful friend Christie’s family; we went to a restaurant somewhere in New England — kind, loving people — such a delight!
  • At a restaurant with a friend of a friend in New York City: lost my shoe in a snowdrift on Central Park East and they let me in anyway.
  • This week — my sister’s broken up her family, but her two children are healthy — that in itself is worth celebrating!

Good luck everyone, and happy Thanksgiving.

— Kathy

To the NYTimes moderator:

You have the email addresses of the people who posted. Please send an email to Sad Person and the others like him or her and let them know that the other 270+ people are thinking of them and are with them at a virtual Thanksgiving dinner.

— P.Ellen

Are Grants For Small Business For Real?

You may have been intrigued by the allure of obtaining grants for small business from the federal federal government to start or broaden your operation. As fantastic as it may possibly sound to obtain a federal government grant that you don’t have to compensate back again, such grants don’t genuinely exist. You didn’t think tiny business financing was that straightforward, did you?

Whilst the federal authorities does not supply grants for starting or growing modest businesses, it does offer a myriad of providers to help entrepreneurs in pursuit of their dreams. A single of the mechanisms in spot to encourage tiny business progress and economic growth is the CDFI Fund managed by the US Division of the Treasury. In the existing fiscal yr the federal federal government is allocating a lot more than $12 Million to support CDFIs.

CDFIs fall into three categories:

1. Community Improvement Mortgage Resources
2. Group Advancement Credit rating Unions
3. Community Improvement Banks – Including Thrifts and Holding Organizations
4. Neighborhood Advancement Endeavor Money Resources

The genesis of the CDFI Fund was the Riegle Local community Advancement and Regulatory Improvement Act of 1994. The cause for the fund’s existence is to foster fiscal revitalization and neighborhood improvement.

All participants in the CDFI system go by way of a certification process performed by the Treasury Department. The certification allows CDFIs access to a variety of applications supplied by the Fund. These applications offer financial and technical support to CDFIs by way of the CDFI System, the Native American CDFI Assistance System, the New Markets Tax Credit history Program and the Financial institution Enterprise Award Plan.

Tiny business owners really should compensate distinct attention to the offerings offered by the Compact disc Banks, Cd Bank loan Cash and Compact disk Enterprise Money Resources.

Compact disc Financial institutions offer you a broad selection of financial and consulting providers to individuals and businesses living and operating in underserved or economically deprived areas.

Compact disc Bank loan Cash are set to to offer you advancement and financing providers to businesses, organizations and individuals in low-income rural and urban places. They serve a selection of organization sorts including microenterprises, tiny businesses, and housing and local community providers organizations.

Compact disc Endeavor Capital Resources are an exceptional supply of fairness or near-equity financing for little businesses in underserved neighborhoods. Quite a few of these money present business consulting companies in conjunction with financial providers.

While Group Advancement Financial institutions are for-income institutions with important neighborhood representation on their boards of directors, Neighborhood Development Mortgage Money are generally nonprofit entities. Neighborhood Advancement Endeavor Money Money can either be for income or not-for-earnings institutions.

CDFIs provide companies around the nation to underserved and reduced-income populations. There are also a subset to these entities that concentrate on places of excessive economic distress, including the Mississippi Delta, the Gulf Opportunity Zone, Native Communities, Colonias, and Appalachia.

If your modest business operates in a area of that is underserved, has a considerable lower-income population or in an location of excessive monetary misery, you need to investigate how a CDFI can support you in growing your business.

Just Be Thankful It Didn’t Happen to You

I went to my mother’s house for dinner (she was a professional caterer and an excellent cook). She never liked me; she was very jealous of my media and modeling career, as was most of my family. They’d called me the “Queen Bee” when I’d come to visit.

I would take it in stride but this Thanksgiving I was sitting at the extended table in the family room, my uncle’s wife across from me. She looked at me and said, “Every time you come into a room you always make me feel so ugly and insignificant.” I think I had had it and I replied, “maybe if you went on a diet and lost 50 pounds, visited a dermatologist for your severe acne and had plastic surgery, you’d feel better about yourself, and stop targeting people who have nothing to do with your insecurities.”

Needless to say, my mother asked me to leave for insulting her “guests.” I did, and visited friends who had invited me to join them for Thanksgiving. The food was awful but the welcome was delicious.

Years ago I took four kids to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. They were not my own, but I functioned as a surrogate dad. Lost the 2-year-old in Bryant Park after the festivities ended. Scores of cops informed me they were off-duty now and couldn’t be of assistance. (Full disclosure: while concerned about the child’s safety, I was more worried about what her mother would do to me.) Found the kid; all OK. Due to the stress, I decided not to use the subway, but instead grabbed a cab, hoping my scant funds would get us home. Managed to get one of the new generation of cabbies who didn’t know the city. Started going uptown on the West Side Highway, not the best way to get to Houston Street and First Avenue.

Finally got home when the 6-year-old claimed he had a cockroach in his ear. Pipe down, kid. Kid persists and is taken to hospital where it is discovered that he has – a cockroach in his ear. Long day and night, leading to frayed nerves and a breakup of the relationship the next day.

Not quite as bad as when years earlier on a Thanksgiving Day, while on bivouac in the Army, my captain mistakenly informed me that my mother had passed away.

So, my family is Catholic, I only tell you this because it is relevant to the story. One year my cousin (who was in his late 20s) made a declaration. “I’m going to be a priest.” His father, my uncle, roared, ‘Like Hell you are’ and glared at him for the rest of the meal. His grandmother went on espousing the joys of joining the church and my aunt started crying. While this show was going on the 20 some other guests ate in silence…

My brother’s new wife insisted on having everyone over to their newly decorated apartment in Forest Hills. I was told it would be okay to bring my 6-month-old basset hound puppy so she could play with my brother’s huge German shepherd.

In the first 15 minutes there, my puppy christened their new wall-to-wall carpeting; their German shepherd knocked my dad right into the coffee table which sent a bowl of dip flying onto the living room wall and sofa. Then, as my sister-in-law was carrying the beautiful, orange glazed turkey to the dining room table, it rolled on the platter right into her pretty pink suit. Just then we heard a muffled explosion in the oven. The stuffing that was heating wasn’t in an oven-proof dish, and it was now all over the oven… burning. It set off the smoke detector. Which started both dogs barking wildly.

When I was married, my then mother-in-law absolutely despised me for the reasons that some mothers-in-laws despise men who marry their daughters. She was in charge of setting the table for the 12 of us who were at our house for Thanksgiving dinner. To her credit, she did a terrific job except that my place was absolutely bare. No plate, no drinking glasses, no silverware, nothing.

My Hungarian husband wanted a goose for Thanksgiving instead of turkey. Geese are rare in some grocery stores, so we bought a live goose and let the children feed it all summer and fall. They named the goose “Daisy.”

When the time came, my husband took the goose to a professional, who prepared it for roasting.

Thanksgiving came and guests arrived for our special meal. After sitting down to the table and saying grace, I carried the goose out of the kitchen and placed it on our table laden with traditional Thanksgiving fare.

One child began to cry and then the other. I asked what the matter was and the older pointed at the goose and wailed, “That’s Daisy.” The crying grew louder and we all stared at the golden brown carcass of our goose. End of story: we had a miserable vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner.

Two memorable ones:

1) About 24 years ago, a huge screaming fight erupts between my grandfather and my youngest uncle (only about 13 years older than me) that degenerated into my g-father insulting M.L.K. and my uncle insulting Jesus (top of grandfather’s head = “kaboom!”)

2) About 8 years ago, my same uncle obliquely asking for money from my g-mother due to an upcoming birth of his firstborn (basically asking for part of his inheritance early) only to have his eldest sister (a notorious control-freak) totally flip out and start screaming that money just runs through his fingers, ranting about how horrible it is to live in Europe where her taxes go towards benefits for new mothers to stay at home (she says to my pregnant aunt), and then finally cursing, whereupon my 80-ish-year-old g-mother who was on the march towards dementia just reaches over and slaps her in the face.
— Kate


A consistent theme at our family Thanksgivings in the late-70s and early-80s was the presence of an older cousin and his parents. The dinner was always lovely and the conversations mellow. So far, not so bad, right? At the first of these extended family gatherings (let’s say 1978) the cousin pulls out a joint and lights up after dessert. I guess this was the Bohemian version of brandy and cigars. In any event, the kiddies (I was the oldest at 12, at the time) got sent off to bed, and the following morning the kiddies got a lecture. Each year after that the cousin’s actions became more and more ridiculous until they finally stopped coming.

I worked as a dishwasher at a turkey restaurant and spent 8 hours scrapping food off of plates with my hands into 50 gallon garbage cans. Top that.

Paterson Urges Bloomberg to Accept Deal on Chancellor

With the candidacy of Cathleen P. Black, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s choice for the city’s next schools chancellor, suddenly in trouble, the Bloomberg administration is now considering its next moves.

But another New York City resident who is no stranger to controversial appointments on Wednesday urged the mayor to compromise: Gov. David A. Paterson.

Speaking on “The John Gambling Show” on WOR-AM (710), Mr. Paterson said that an advisory panel selected by David M. Steiner, the state education commissioner, had acted properly by voting on Tuesday to reject Ms. Black’s request for a waiver.

She needs such a waiver from Dr. Steiner because she lacks the education credentials required by state law to be in charge of the city’s schools. Ms. Black is the chairwoman of Hearst Magazines.

But Mr. Paterson also described as “very fair” a compromise put forth by Dr. Steiner that would grant the waiver, as long as an educator was appointed to a new post of chief academic officer that would oversee teaching, learning and accountability.

“There is a reason why there is a review of a chancellor’s choice,” Mr. Paterson said in his most expansive comments yet on Ms. Black’s nomination. “So I don’t think it will cost the mayor or Ms. Black anything to comply with the request and we can move on.”

The panel’s decision — four members said no outright, two said yes and two said that they were inclined to vote no, but were open to compromise — came as a surprise to many people in the political and education world. After all, several of the panelists worked either as top assistants in the Department of Education in the Bloomberg administration or for organizations that have had strong financial ties to the city or the mayor.

Neither Mr. Bloomberg nor anyone from his administration has commented on the panel’s vote. But speaking to reporters before the vote on Tuesday, the mayor repeated his belief that Ms. Black was the best candidate for the job.
