Speaking of crime posts, this sub has been a whole lot better without them. Thanks everyone.


ThreeLittlePuigs t1_jcyajmf wrote

So why are y’all still burying the crime thread results? Is it because the top mod doesn’t personally like the results of the vote, or want to admit they messed up running the vote? We were told 3+ months ago results would be released and acted on and you’re yet to publicly even admit (oh right you responded to one comment and got chewed out for misrepresenting the truth in it) that you need to redo the vote….. who cares about the actual thread at this point but leaderships inability to actually follow up with anything they claim they’ll do is embarrassing. That and the utter lack of accountability.


deansprings t1_jd07ixs wrote

Hey man, can you stop asking about this? Unfortunately I think the results weren't exactly helpful for our community so it's best to not show it at all. Let's try to forget about it.


ThreeLittlePuigs t1_jd0a84l wrote

The results were that the survey was done wrong and capped answers after a day and not 7. And that the vote was relatively inconclusive with the majority of folks voting for some sort of crime thread. I’m just not sure why they can’t admit this happened and move on like they said they would.


ThreeLittlePuigs t1_jb0pbm4 wrote

I was muted just for asking a question in modmail. Is it the new policy that mods don’t have to be tolerant of others opinions that they don’t like? Should you update the seeking mods post to say “just don’t question leadership and you can be a mod / allowed to post here”?

funforyourlife t1_jb9vfcd wrote

Huh, weird. I was going to ask the same thing. I don't always agree with your viewpoints on issues but you are clearly active and local so it seems odd to be de-modded.


ThreeLittlePuigs t1_jb9xuyi wrote

Yeah appreciate that, I'm definitely vocal of opinions, but tried to never let that effect my decisions and appreciated the folks of the sub, like yourself, for giving me grace to do that.

Couple mods (u/paratactical and u/majorfogtime, sorry for pinging you guys but I am talking about ya so felt the thing to do) were demodded, I thought they were good mods and asked the team to vote if we could bring them back, everyone who weighed in voted that they should be mods again(this represented the overwhelming majority of the mod team), within a few hours of bringing the old folks back I was demodded. To be fair I'd been relatively active in questioning some decisions in modmail recently without getting any response, so likely someone became tired of me being a thorn in their side as well.


Darth_Monkey t1_jbc3ukt wrote

Guess I left at the wrong time. Missed all this drama! Looks like no new mods were added, I wonder if this round of applications were unfruitful


ThreeLittlePuigs t1_jbconw4 wrote

I mean at some point if things don’t get fixed I’d be surprised if the top mod could find anyone. They got rid of some of the most active mods because they didn’t want to share power and they want to treat folks like employees. It’s an incredibly untenable position and one that I doubt anyone would want to be involved in for too long.

But yeah you missed all the fun!!!

Ideally it would be introductory or intermediate with the goal of having you build a proof of concept or simple game by the end of the class.

I don’t know if it was just me for some reason but are the security guards at 590 Madison on some rent-a-cop power trip???

Was told that I “wasn’t allowed” to put my feet on a chair while I was sitting at a table minding my own. Asked the guard why to which he responded “I work here” as if that was justification.

Obviously with Privately Owned Public Spaces the owners are allowed to set some rules but that seemed excessive even to me. I asked where that rule was posted and the security guard pointed to a sign on the wall. The closest rule that seemed relevant said that you couldn’t place personal belongings on chairs or benches, but that’s a stretch.

I’m not gonna waste time on it and the folks across the street at 550 Madison in the other POPS literally next door were much nicer anyways. Just wondering if anyone else has had any weird experiences


Schmeep01 t1_jaxqdgt wrote

Unless you changed your shoes when you came in from the street, please don’t put your feces feet on the chair.


NetQuarterLatte t1_jaugwrw wrote

At least in spirit, the NYC laws require the private business to establish rules for the privately owned public spaces that ensures the space can be equally enjoyed by everyone.

If occupying one chair with your feet meant it was one less chair for someone else to use it, or one soiled chair or something, the enforcement/rules appears to be aligned with the spirit.

That being said, none of it excuses a security guard going on an ego power trip.


30roadwarrior t1_jcf8ee3 wrote

The guy told him he’s not allowed to put his feet on a chair. Basic manners actually and not an ego trip. Our poster is displaying typical toddler complaining and seeking sympathy.

This Thursday I’m planning on taking my girlfriend down to NYC and going to the top of the One World Trade Center. It’s about a 4 hour drive for us.

For anyone that’s done this before, do I need to buy tickets in advanced, and what will the parking situation look like?

Also do you guys think the Trade Center is the right building to do this? I know NYC has lots of rooftop views and idk which is the best, but I feel being that the Trade Center is the tallest building it would be the best. Although what’s concerning me and maybe I’m crazy is that there doesn’t seem to be any open like deck, it seems you can only look through windows?


iv2892 t1_jb13kot wrote

The parking situation is tough in downtown , you can go to a garage but is expensive. Sometimes what most people do is park in a certain area where is easier to find parking and then just move using the subway

>Also do you guys think the Trade Center is the right building to do this? I know NYC has lots of rooftop views and idk which is the best, but I feel being that the Trade Center is the tallest building it would be the best

The Edge at 30 Hudson Yards, and Top of the Rock, are the usual recommended observatories. Mostly because you can't see One WTC when you're inside it (same for Empire State Building).


>For anyone that’s done this before, do I need to buy tickets in advanced, and what will the parking situation look like?

Early March isn't exactly tourist high season, but you never know. No reason to leave it to chance.

As for parking, the situation will be bad. Don't count on nearby street parking. Garages will be expensive, but are likely your only option. The better plan is to park wherever, and then use transit the rest of the way. Depending on the direction you're driving in from, parking near a Metronorth or NJ Transit station, or other park and ride, could be less of a hassle.


Geeekus t1_jb2sjei wrote

Just looked up the Edge, definitely will be going there instead, thank you so much for the tip! As far as parking I’m coming from New England, I’ll look up some spots and see what I can figure out. If you have any good out of the city parking spots that are connected to the subway you could recommend I’d be so grateful. Thanks!


Bangkok_Dangeresque t1_jb67b8w wrote

There's loads of spots depending on how much time you want to spend on transit. You could park as far out as New Haven CT or Brewster NY and take the regional rail (MTA) in to Grand Central. Though that's a 2 hour trip.

I guess it depends on what tradeoffs you'd prefer to make.

  • You can drive all the way, pay the tolls, and put your car in a garage all day for $60-80 (or more).
  • Chance it with street parking and figuring out when/which meters you have to feed, and whether you have to move your car every two hours or whatever
  • Pick your favorite station that looks like it has parking nearby on google maps, and decide how much time on the train is too much that you'd have preferred to just pay for the garage anyway

During the mid-day and late evening, it is more crowded on weekends than on weekdays. During rush hour it is more crowded than on weekends.

Overall ridership is higher on weekend days than on weekdays, but much more spread out throughout the day rather than just rush hour. This has been the case since COVID and also from ~2000 to 2015, but not from 2015-2019.
