re: Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Will Go On, In a New Form
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is held up to a standard like NO other parade in the world. Do it right, or don’t do it at all! Like the generation of the 1940s, the American fan will understand.

I am glad everyone enjoyed the theater. While I cannot promise the knishes will be back, I can promise that the theater will return.

This is terrible news. Love this store! Are they having a sale?
re: Gale Brewer Wants City to Address Street Homelessness, Particularly at 9 Locations on UWS
The pandemic didn’t “create inequalities.” The inequalities have always been there, but now UWsiders have to actually look at them and encounter our complicity.
re: 1,100 Participate in CB7 Zoom Meeting About ‘Homeless Hotels’
Da Homeless Hero says:
I’m dismayed at the fact that none of us who are homeless has been allowed to be a part of any discussion as though we’re “invisible people” only to be exploited by an inconsiderate media. I’ll always find a way to speak out, but many are traumatized at the negative characterizations since being brought to the UWS. Decisions are made without taking into account how they would negatively impact us. The negative things you see are perpetuated by a system that continues to fail us. Please let us have a seat at the table and a voice in the conversation.
re: Phish Lead Singer Trey Anastasio Spotted Jamming (Privately) in Central Park
Uncle Twilly says:
Trey thrives on togetherness and bringing folks together. This pandemic is making it hard for him to do what we all love so much. Music is the last true voice of the human spirit, it goes beyond age, beyond language and beyond color. Straight to the heart and mind of all people. Mask or no mask (he was wearing one), this is as genuine as it gets.
re: Bull Moose Dog Run Is Dry Again; No Problem With Renovations, Parks Says
Personally I liked the flooding. It allowed me to bring my two goldfish down to the park for some badly needed outdoor exercise. They took a few laps and then we went to Shake Shack. It was a lovely afternoon. I’ve said it before, this park should be for all UWS pets! How about a nice big cat patio space (a “catio” if you will) or a big communal hamster wheel. Maybe a nice pool/pond for the fish to stretch their fins. Gotta think outside of the box. OK, that’s enough ranting. Time for me to take my medication.

Mark Moore says:
No absentee ballot for me thanks. I would crawl through broken glass to vote for Biden on Election Day.
