“Welcome Bowery Residents Committee…but it seem not everyone feels that way!
I hit the hot streets today and headed down 8th Avenue to 23rd Street and what do I see on every lamppost, affixed with heavy duty, 3-inch tape, at least one, often two, three or four leaflets….protesting the opening of a facility that would serve a community in need of assistance. (looked like a job done by a professional leafleter, but money is no object).
What’s the message? A protest to a court decision that would allow the Bowery Residents Committee (BRC) to open its doors and begin to help those in need of their services.
But wait, there’s more! A sample of the language…’warehousing’, not assisting those need of help… bad for the homeless’’, haven’t heard from the homeless on this … ‘illegal’, and ‘breaks the law’ in spite of the court decision to the contrary… ‘justice delayed is justice denied’, ‘justice’, defined by who?
Despite evidence to the contrary (the BRC facility that resided on Lafayette Street for many years with barely any evidence of their existence, except for those who were helped) our East Chelsea neighbors have made some lawyers and leafleteers very happy, (again, money is no object).
So, to quote another distortion, “bad for the homeless, bad for the community” does NOT represent the view of many of my Chelsea neighbors who support the opening of the Bowery Residents Committee facility which will offer assistance to those who need another chance.

I'm really loving the theme/design of your weblog.
Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems? A number
of my blog audience have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.
Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was
super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.

Do you have any tips and hints for beginner blog writers?
I'd definitely appreciate it.
