"A couple of blocks away, as the surf sounds begin to fade. Residents of Coney Island's public housing units are struggling. Their grounds are now ripped up with mountains of dirt laying beside exposed pipes. What's going on in here is really crazy. But you pay rent You want to live. These things. I like an animal. They treat us like human beings. Like dogs. I remember begun is a retired disabled resident of o'dwyer gardens, a complex run by the New York City housing authority. Resem apartments have gone almost 6 months without cooking gas. At a neighboring development called Coney Island sites four and 5, August will mark the one year anniversary since residents lost cooking gas in their apartments. The absence leaves over a thousand residents without a way to feed themselves. I want somebody here, they say, they give me an appointment, they don't show up. So many appointments they never came. The gas breaks and the two developments look the same, but stem from different issues. The interruption of the o'dwyer building stems from a construction project that was supposed to finally fix problems spurred by hurricane sandy. The initiative called the nature recovery and resilience project is a $700 million effort to repair and replace the crumbling infrastructure with something that will potentially survive and outlast the next superstorm. But in the effort to do that, the cruise knocked out gas lines, and the agency is offering no clear service renewal in sight. Mark is a resident of o'dwyer gardens who agreed to speak anonymously for fear that he would lose his housing for publicly criticizing NYCHA. So one by one by one by one that the gas services disrupted in quality of life suffers because you know what that does to the human psyche People just they get fed up and that's just one of the many conditions that are going on here and it's going on for years. Over at sight's four and 5, the gas break is due to a leak on the main pipe, according to an emailed statement from NYCHA. But residents say the problem speaks to crumbling infrastructure, exacerbated by damage after sandy. Regardless, the city says service can not be restored until construction on all the wings are completed. But since the lines were cut 11 months ago, only one out of 5 wings has been completed. State assemblywoman Matilda frontis represents the district, and according to her, fixing these issues has been a game of whack a mole. Problems pop up as soon as the solution seems to be on the horizon. More recent examples have certainly been contractors and subcontractors working on the premises. And having some sort of mishap and they keep saying, oops, we're so sorry. As they mistakenly, you know, cut a line while they're working. Residents wax poetic about what a beautiful and well maintained building this used to be. Now, there's garbage piling up in the pits where the contractors expose the pipes. Water is leaking out of the buildings, pooling around the base of the concrete. It's attracting rats and bugs, and residents fear the inaction will only lead to future problems. I mean, you want to come home after a long day. And you don't have the mechanism to do that. You have a hot plate which allows you to cook in one pot at a time. Just thinking about it stresses me out. It's not like cooking on the stove. You probably have to

And you know oprah's whole mantra is live your best life like you could see from the the employees. Nobody that works for oprah. Was doing that like because you have to work.

History so i guess it was the nineteen hundreds and basically it was the first place where americans new york city people had had a way to spend dipoto disposable income it was like a totally new concept is one of the first amusement parks ever and they had freak shows and they had a boardwalk eventually. They built the aquarium they built. Nathan's and and i've been going there since i was a little kid. My dad used to take me to the aquarium all the time.

And then they're like these dudes across the street who are like breaking bottles and screaming and then we could kind of see junkies and you felt it you know. I haven't been in a neighborhood like that in a while. I guess if you walk real east in the lower east side you can feel that around avenue de but here in coney island it.

AJ Had a Fascination With 'Freaks' as a Kid
"I had a fascination with freaks as a kid. You know, Siamese twins and fat people and short people, people in the arms and legs. My father had these stories about all the freaks he saw at Coney Island. He was a kid, Coney Island, Brooklyn, on the boardwalk, they were freak shows. You play a nickel you walk in, you see the Siamese twins, you see the dog faced girl. Always create the guy who rolled cigarettes with his lips 'cause his hands and arms and legs were gone. Caterpillar man, crazy people. The world's tallest man married to the world's fattest woman, that kind of shit. So I'm ten years old or so, and I saw a book. There was a catalog back in my day. I just remembered this. It was a Cadillac called the JD Smith catalog. I've been a lot of you right now but holy shit I forgot about that. In the JD Smith catalog, where pictures of all these things you could order. And back then, things took 6 weeks to get to your fucking house. And your mother would pay for them by check, no credit card. You'd have to check the envelope in the mail with a stamp and wait. Couldn't call anybody one day it appeared three months later. Oh my God, I forgot this. It was magic kids. It was all this kind of disappear ink. This purple lengthy spray on people's shirts, and they want to kill it, and then it slowly goes away. Just stupid shit like that. And in that catalog, what this book about freaks, and it was called freaks. Inside the book, it finally got to the house. My mother, I'm not buying you this shit, ma. I gotta see this. Look at Johnny eck. Look at ching and ing, the Siamese twins connected at the head. There was Julia Pastrana, the dog faced woman. Grace mcdaniel the ugliest woman in the world. So many in that, so I love that book. For about 12 years old, I couldn't put it down for two years. I carried

Why i'm never going back to coney island while luna park to the exact that portion will. We'll we'll go to the beach but as for the amusement park. I have a few things that i would like to get my chest. And since it's summer and people are going to be going to amusement parks going on rides and stuff. I figured i would talk a little.

I'll go on bumper cars if you know the names of the rise uncle and soaring eagle electro spin in. If you don't know the rise you should probably look it up. But i was all up in there on all of them and i was so lucky because from a young age i was super tall so i was able to go on so many rides so many big rides but sophomore year of high school.

"coney island" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"High school so i was a match for every five. I had to go against at lincoln because they didn't know how defend that at the time Meanwhile like you're playing with staffs and steph was the guy that year he became the like. Everyone knew news new staff book. What was your relationship like while you were getting better and become an your own right. And he was on this kind of superstardom path. Oh but i mean steph was like in high school. I was saying highschool one hundred percent supportive. Like you know especially like my first year when i was coming on my show so I was playing with a new team. Called the broncos. The new york city broncos. So that's like the b or c division of a youth programs. And you know in new york. So i had a couple of tournaments our in Ohio and i had a tournament out in virginia. And that was the first time i saw a and i was like this did so i. I had good towards out there. So we're was getting back at you. Know the yoda's kid like djamil. Your cousin is killing. So when steph heard that like him in my coach got together and they said no. You're not playing with the broncos mall you come with us to the bills so ever since then. I started playing with the galileo with steph. Like he was like you know he was bringing me along with him so every big time tournament that he played in in new york go to hoops or whatever i was right with them five star. You know what. I'm saying right there with him right there with them like you know he was he was. He was really supportive at that time. You know for my development lookout Who's on the couch is senior year. Shammgod guard talking clock Eric harris steph She move evans gary saunders. Oh larry larry. Abney larry adnia. He's with a. He's assistant coach with the clippers. Now I think my blunt played played a few games with us like we had a squad. We haven't lose to malone go alone. Didn't you guys lose. Till i. I must say like the dallas team or something in vegas. I just remember that there. There was like no way anyone who's going to beat you and you guys played like an early morning game against the dallas got. Beat yes yes. And that was makes you a bassin's team right. Yes yes we call them plastic man. That was team meal. I'll give you the other side to it right. Here's an everyday said about new about about like takao jets. Don't play them at night. If you can play them in the morning you play the night. Got no shot. Yeah we were. Yeah you well. Doug i'm five on the only person that got some rest was probably steph. Here's here's the only professional that was on the team value. Why did you choose providence. After that game against when we played against dallas. Yeah that's when Bobby gonzalez recruited me. That's when he was like that's when they gave me the offer. Because sometimes like like i can hang out late in do whatever at night and i can wake up because my body was kind of accustomed to it right so that game i just i was. I was doing the same thing. Like like rebound bringing the ball court and making certain passes in certain sites. Like i've played a totally different way with the gauchos. Then that lincoln. I'll play more like a small forward power forward with the gauchos and lincoln. I would just stuck to the five. 'cause i was the biggest guy there and yeah but The reason why i chose providence is because you know every school in a country that was including steph to get staff there was gonna including the packers though i'm talking about syracuse georgia tech. Ucla every school. It was like well. We're him in there too. If you come you know basically yes. So that wasn't gonna work right Steph stuff pops was like no you need to get out of steph shadow and do your own thing and you know my parents the brahmins. Everybody felt the same way. So it boiled down to two schools right. I had you wanna recruit me. They wouldn't want to be Take monroe spot and then my coach like no. He's not a for five. He's just forced to play this position at lincoln. He's he's he's he's a legit small forward. So and i think that's when calipari was in Jim beano Jen i know what's name building. Oh yeah bill bain. Oh yeah yeah. So there were there so that didn't work out and then narrowed down to school was right so rutgers university in providence college so i went on my college visits so my first college visit was Add official college visit at rutgers university. And you know my parents you know. They were heavily involved Province heavily involved so my host was charles jones. So we you know we brooklyn guys. You know what we like to do. So he He was my host And i went talk couple. I went to a practice i went. I sorta facility. And then at night he said five. I got you then. He showed me around campus. And then i just had a ball for like that. I just i had a great khan. I thought i was in coney island with a bunch of intellectual people so And when i get home to my my parent's house the brabham is they said how visit. Oh my god it was great. I had the best time i like. I'm going to rutgers university. There's like oh okay all right. That's fun but we don't want to make a decision yet. Let's let's let's try providence. This picture officials they didn't know the official providence. It's free you've you're flying air so i was like all right. But i'm going to ruckus so adamant about that and I took my official visit at providence. College and jason murdoch with My host and he takes me to the whitest club in providence rhode island area. I was like jane. this is Like this now my cup of tea like you know what i'm saying like we gotta get out of here and You know i sort of practices and all that you know they give they show you your jersey your sneakers and all that they try to sell you with that and it was. Everything was closed at like like ten. Eleven o'clock out there out like now. I think for me the same for me. So i went back home to my parents and i told him about the province college experience. I was like now. This this thing for me. I providence is not a. I'm a rather ruckus. And then you know they had to talk with me. There was like well. You gotta look at rookus like is living in. Coney island all the distractions right. And then you gotta look at providence. Like not living over.

So talk to us about that and how it fits in vcp job interesting thing where we've switched to Zim and we've been here six months or so now and I think we have to keep in mind that being on camera is now replacing us being in the meeting. So we want to make sure the game Doing everything we can to be moving up the referral confidence curve and down the referral confidence come out. And so the first thing to me is how do you want to be seen and when we only have a short time for a weekly presentation or our featured presentation just a couple of times a year. We want to make sure that we are using the most of the space that we have. So many people are watching the zoom meeting with you on gallery. So you're only a couple inches high. So you really want to think about bringing your energy. I think you have to be more energetic on Zoom than you actually do in person wage. Do you think doctor my eyes? Are you finding that? You have to kind of take it up a notch on camera Coney Island Tiffany? Yeah, I think so. And I think if I remember that like gestures and gestures, you tied my hands. I must be Italian somewhere because if you tied my hands you couldn't speak. I think it's really important to make sure that your hands are included in the camera so that you know when you're doing hand gestures Which means you need to tighten it up. You need to bring your hands in a little closer to show that excitement and to show you know, that visually show that you're you're making a point in that sense. Yes, and then I know we're all in like different with our camera is at so for me. I'm like, I would never talk in public with my hands up by my head, but you do want to have people see that girl. I think you want when you're being seen you want to thank can I use props either something visual that we can use. Yes great suggestion. Yeah, and then we also have the virtue backdrops versus the regular background. I think that your goal is you want to be professional dress professional with a professional background whether that's virtual that works for you or I have a zoom Courtney my office. I actually created this about three years ago to where I can easily do zoom and I know it always looks great behind me. Yeah, cuz if you I don't know if you've seen anybody I I've been with the dog. 30 piles of stuff in the background. Yes. It has it's not it's not pretty I don't know what they're thinking that cracks me up though. Have you seen the new jersey and I assume background that's got me standing off on the left. So I see them because people take screenshots and I'm tagged on Facebook page actually being in a photograph when it's just me as a backdrop, which is just cracks me up. That is hysterical. The last thing I want to say about being seen is make sure that you have your name spelled properly first and last name, maybe even your company name labeled with you and the zoom box. I was visiting a chapter and somebody was listed as dads iPhone off. Oh God. Okay. Yeah. That's that's a problem. You don't want the first thing we want to make sure is we want to be seen the second thing. I think it's very important for us is what time To say I think Matt now more than ever we have to make sure we're very concise with our message and we like to use the saying be specific to be terrific. So during your weekly and featured presentation you wanted to ask you definitely want to make sure that you are specific about that ideal referral or the ideal referral source, and I think that when were sharing if you can use success stories, that is so impactful. We like to say stories sell War facts just tell so anytime you can tell us successes that you created for your clients. It's makes it easy for your fellow chapter members to refer you. Can I add one thing to that but we're telling because I think it's really important don't retell a story relive a story The more you can relive life, you know, really think about your experience there and do your best to re limit as you tell that story. It makes for better storytelling

Each fourth of July, as fireworks light up the night sky, red, white and blue flags fly overhead Americans scarf down hotdogs, one hundred and fifty million of them to be exact.

Nathan's famous hot dogs was started by one Guy Nathan hand worker. He's not alive anymore, so I spoke to his grandson. My grandfather had no schooling whatsoever. You didn't spend one day in his life. In a school Lloyd hand worker has made a documentary and a book about Nathan's famous and the story of the guy who started. Mazen, hand worker was. Extremely poor immigrant from Poland who lived the American dream? He was one of thirteen kids. They were extremely poor. To add. When he was growing up. Only you know how to add two plus two Nathan. Story is about as classic as they come as a kid back in Poland. He'd worked in a bakery for a couple of years and he'd learned that food service jobs were pretty smart. Move if you didn't WANNA. Go hungry so when he arrived in New York in nineteen twelve. Is this right and nineteen year old? He Got A. A job as a dishwasher at a restaurant in the city called Max's busy, he learn English and maxes by repeating what the customer said, basically just hearing what they said, and just trying to repeat it without even knowing what it meant soon, he started working weekends as a role slicer at a place called Feldman's this enormous restaurant on the coney island boardwalk, even back then coney island was the sort of urban escape. For the cost of just a subway ride, immigrants could get away from the tenements of the industrializing city and find themselves at a beach, an amusement parks. Many of them set up small businesses. They're hoping to make it big. Dog Is an immigrant foot, right? Immigrants sold lamb grits.

New York City beaches open for holiday weekend, no swimming allowed
"A few days at the beach is typically a no brainer for Memorial Day weekend needless to say it is a little bit more complicated this year some beaches are open some are restricting who can go others are restricting what you can do there here to tell us where new Yorkers and new Jerseyans can go to welcome the summer wireless socially distancing is WNYC's Karen Yi and the Jake often hearts of Gothamist Karen Jake hello hi David it it it there is still so much we don't know about cope with nineteen but many epidemiologists say that with social distancing precautions in place heading to the beach does not pose a large threat for people in low risk groups Cameron let's start with you governor Murphy said beaches would re open for the holiday weekend is that right yes that's right so Murphy has said if speech is re opened they need to limit the amount of people on the beach and enforced social distancing so it's really gonna be up to each municipality to decide how to do that and what parts of the beaches or boardwalks to re open so remember not all of the beach is closed during the pandemic some have already re opened and some remain partially close and it's equally as complicated in New York City right Jake governor Cuomo joined New Jersey Connecticut and Delaware to open up the beaches but mayor bill de Blasio technically won't open up city beaches that's right David New York City is fourteen miles on public beaches are technically close what that really means is the beaches are closed to swimming sports picnics many of the social things people go to the beach for but you can still walk sit on the beach or even dip your feet into the water up to your ankles the idea is to discourage nothing Yorkers from going to the beach so it's not over crowded what about beaches on Long Island to Jones beach the Hamptons these are very popular spots for new Yorkers or they could be an option many all island beaches will be open this weekend but they're not exactly rolling out the red carpet for us New York City residents several towns including East Hampton have plans to limit or entirely banned outsiders from their shores that's led to some regional contentions of Nassau County official had to walk back in down and out of towners on Nickerson beach after my colleague Sylvia Chang points out that beaches that receive federal funding must be open to the public the state run beaches like Robert Moses in Jones beach will be open to everyone but they're restricting capacity to fifty percent and governor Cuomo says people could be turned away from parking lot as early as ten AM single parking is always a problem and beaches in both states Karen tell us about the Jersey Shore is parking to be restricted even more than usual yes so again it's gonna come down to home rule it's New Jersey right so it's gonna be up to each town since sandy hook which is run by the National Park Service is limiting parking to fifty percent and so is island beach state park which is run by the state mayors have told me that they're gonna be announcing reminders on loudspeakers there's gonna be civilian ambassadors patrolling the boardwalk there's gonna be a lot of signage but really it's gonna have to come down to trust trust that people will do the right thing and act responsibly what Jake in New York City you have reported on members of the NYPD enforcing social distancing measures in physically aggressive ways in the subways and on city streets can new Yorkers expect a large police presence on the beaches what is the plan for monitoring resource can definitely expect to see a major law enforcement presence this weekend and why PDP stale has been up thirty percent they'll be joined by parks police and thousands of social distancing ambassadors similar to New Jersey if things get too crowded the mayor says they may even put up fencing literally barricading the beaches anyone who tries to swim will be ordered out well in New Jersey some mayors are concerned about not enough police presence on the beaches Cameron that what are you hearing I spoke two point pleasant beach mayor Paul Kenitra and he's very concerned about this so his speech is partially open not the boardwalk so this means that Jenkins beach is also gonna be close but the biggest problem for him and re opening everything is that he says he can't hire the seasonal officers who normally boost up as police force during the summer because all the training academies are closed so for the things that are open for the part of each that is open he says this weekend will be a test run for whether the precautions they've implemented will work we need to see how realistic it is to have our badge checkers wearing the mask and gloves and in hot weather we need to make sure that our lifeguards are able to you know the date people and do things appropriately with the set up that we have one up one down on the lifeguard stands in with the new half the filters for their resuscitation devices so the mayor said there's really no playbook for this I mean everybody is really trying out what works for their particular beach okay so if people can solve the puzzle of finding an open beach what happens when they get there will there be open public restrooms or boardwalk restaurants open for food pickup so curbside pickup is allowed for nonessential businesses take out is going to continue for restaurants a New Jersey recently allowed to go cocktails on the public restroom issue again that's going to depend on the town whether they decide to open those or how they apply limits to that the one thing that the state is encouraging is that everyone wear a mask right and it's the same thing in New York there will be some to go through the options available re sparked beaches are is open many of the vendors on Coney Island and they'll be some bathrooms and Porta potties starting this weekend and finally you keep in mind the water's going to be fifty five degrees not exactly swimming weather even if you are out yeah I think that's gonna keep a lot of people out of the water we'll have to hear much more about how it goes this weekend WNYC's Karen Yi and the Gothamist reporter Jake often hearts thank you for joining us thanks
