FiOS is now available in my neighborood and that is the only reason much of the material linked through “neighborhood” exists. It took a year and a half (help from Common Cause) to get it done. In words of one of NYC’s mayor’s after a long loosing battle with a neighborhood, “Great, now they’ll think they can get whatever they want.” He was right. Organized neighborhoods in partnership with a city-wide group can get what they want.
Yea! Thank you for all your help, friends and neighbors. The posts related to getting FiOS or an alternative. If any AKNA residents, friends and colleagues want to take on some new issues, this section awaits some ideas. For example:
- Investigate 221 E. 21st. (see menu above for everything we ideas on day-to-day issues, e.g. house sitting, contractors, observations on the new housing site, and so on.
- Another idea is to examine change the Ninth Congressional District. I like the idea working to vote as a block for local representatives is the only way to put squeak in the wheel.
- Add a comment or just your email address here or anywhere where you see this form to get updates.
- In consideration of a slowly deteriorating service from Yahoo, the link below is an alternative for neighborhood communications of use to us all.
