"2021. And we still can't get the job done. And I actually have to pause right now. Shut outs to Steph Curry. This man has 48 points. He's not down 10 of 15 3 Point Field goals. Golden State is winning 99 so like 83, also tonight, Steph Curry. He passed Wilt Chamberlain for most points, all time or warriors points franchise record, so Stuff. Curry is a man on fire tonight. What else is new is Steph Curry? People sometimes want to talk about how good he isn't or what? He is pretty damn awesome. If you ask me, but listen Let's get back to these replays. Why are we talking about replay? Because last night Sunday night If you saw Sunday night baseball, you saw the Atlanta Braves get wrong. You saw Alex Bomb head home plate or heads are home plate on a pop fly from D D Gregorius Alto Ozuna, who has basically a water pistol for an arm. You can't move to save his life and he throws the ball home. Alex Boone goes around. He does not touch home plate. And this is the part. That sucks, Okay? Empire and see it happens. He's a human being. We expect it. But the biggest issue is That they went to the video replay. They went to connect to New York City. You have an entire group in New York City, their whole job. Is to eliminate the mistake's of the umpires on the ground and look at the video look at the technology. And actually get the call. Right? Everybody in the stadium saw him in such home plate. Everybody at home. Saw that he did not touch home plate and they still got It. Ran. The best player in baseball. Mike Trout. Basically responded to Will Middlebrooks Online on Twitter. He said. The call He laughed so bad. That was his on Lee response, laughing at how ridiculous it Woz. Between baseball. And football in the N B. A. A couple of callers are telling US golf. It's like you know which replay is the worst. I think it's baseball because baseball can actually automate almost all of the officiating, and they have not. It's because of the union, Of course, just like every other job. None of us want to be replaced by a computer. Nobody wants a computer. We don't need a second. Industrial revolution. We're living in a technological evolution right now. Cause will be driving themselves. Groceries are now delivered. I mean, there's so many different ways that computers have taken away jobs, but you know what? As always, humans we have to adjust. We're the ones creating the technology. We've adjusted. You pick up a trade we need. We need humans to operate the machines at least for right now. But Major league baseball screws up royally the NFL. It seems that the referees even with the stupid video replay, they just make up things as they go along. Would say if I had to go number one worst Major League baseball. If I had to go to number two, I'd go straight to the NFL..

New York City group retrofits apartments without displacing residents

"To me. New york city's climate goals tens of thousands of existing apartment. Buildings need to be retrofitted with new energy efficient technologies but it can be disruptive to make these improvements while people are living inside. Ryan cassidy is with the nonprofit riseborough community partnership which owns and manages affordable housing developments in the city. He says conducting deep retrofits can be done without displacing residents. We don't have to do all that work in the inside of the building we can do it from the outside at an aging apartment complex in brooklyn. His group is replacing old age. Fax systems with officiant air source heat pumps and they're moving as much of the infrastructure as possible to the exterior of the building. So we're putting condensers on the roof and running refrigerant line sets down the outside of the building. Then they're covering those lines with a new highly insulated building facade. He says this project need not be a one-off. These buildings are pretty standard. New york city buildings. They're all between three and five stories. Walk up brick exterior so a pretty large swath of buildings would fall into that category so he hopes it can serve as a model for other building owners in the

New York State Is Set to Raise Taxes on Those Earning Over $1 Million

"It's time to check in with our correspondent in the big apple. That's henry reese sheridan. Today he delves like an over caffeinated accountant into the controversial plan to raise taxes on the rich in new york. Take it away henry. New york contains an enormous number of very rich people. The figures for twenty twenty onto yet but in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred ten thousand four hundred thirty five ultra high net worth individuals. There's people with more than thirty million. Us dollars in that worth called the big apple home. That's more than any other city in the world. New relationship to its rich residents is fraught one on the one hand. Presence of very rich people brings prestige spending power and lots of tax dollars on the other hand. New york city's rich are extremely good as segregating themselves from the rest of society particularly in the fields of education healthcare and housing when not extracting a service from them the less wealthy of new york no the richer here and they're told by politicians from the right to the center of the political spectrum to feel thankful for that but it can be difficult to understand whether tax dollars of the wealthier going when the city's basic infrastructure is in such bad shape politicians a scared to tax the rich as individual careerists. They fear wealthy donors will abandon them if taxes are raised and all but the most leftist governments tend to be swayed by the belief that the wealthy will leave if they are taxed too heavily. Decimating the tax base. This is why historically new york governor andrew cuomo has been soft on taxing the rich in fact cuomo is so scared of the rich leaving new york city. He's willing to go to extreme measures to keep them here.

Because i was alone a lot so i was sort of coming up with my own imagination and creativity and i saw a lot of crazy things i worked at the race. Track is very little kid. I would get up at five o'clock in the morning and go to the racetrack to be what they call a hot walker when they excise the horses and then you have to wash them and cool them doubt not though like driving race. Track the horse race. Track the horse. Okay cool. I was very independent as well. My parents were both working out of the house and a feel like that's what led me to be sort of entrepreneurial like i had to learn how to solve problems for myself at such a young age so i feel like maybe that's something we have in common.

"Back to another episode of this week and photo. I'm your host frederik van johnson today on the show got gerard exupery. He's a veteran new york city based street photographer. That knows more about street photography than than or has forgotten more about it than i probably will ever know about street photography. We're gonna dive into that a little bit as well as what. It's like shooting in and around new york city now and before pandemic all that stuff going to talk about gear all this stuff so gerard. Welcome to the show man. How's it going very well. Glad to be here. Yeah it is good to hear man. I'm excited to chat. So we've got you know. The the john mara of photography. And then this genre of let's call it of photojournalism or that that world of shooting. What's the difference. What's the difference between street photography. And that i think that in journey with photo journalism you tend to think in terms of projects. Not just one image. You know a a series of images that tell a complete story and i think with straight photography. is generally just one image. Okay okay has got to tell the story one at a time. So let let's rewind back to the time to. Let's let's do origin story thing so cue. The flashback so the origin story of girard. Where what was that moment where you knew that. Okay i feel like. I need to be taking pictures of this. This amazing city. I live in well on my planet. We didn't really have photography. And when i came to earth. And i'm sorry all right more and you know it's funny. It's the only thing i've ever wanted to do since As far back as i can remember one of my earliest memories of my father staying his role affleck's in my hand. While i took the first picture took and which was a ship underneath the verrazano bridge and it just stuck in my mind. He passed away about a year after that. And you know. I it just all these feelings about photography and loss. Let's say i don't know all came together. And i just knew that this is the direction i wanted to go. Yeah yeah and it's a good direction. It's the world photography from my standpoint on of you agree with this but it's it's equal parts. Geeky ray is we like the technology and all that stuff and then it psychology you when you're dealing with the public and trying to get the right shot or get the shot or permission to do the shot and the you know the all of this stuff in between psychology science physics wrapped up into the time machine that we call a camera to fast forward to now the president or the recent the recent present. Let's call it like this last this past five five or so years me decade your adventures in and around new york city. The i can't imagine being a street photographer. There for just an extended period of time when i'm there is overload. It's just like what. Do i take pictures of two months. It's too much going on you get analysis paralysis. What would have been some of the standout experiences you've had in city over the past decade or so that you like okay. I got to tell this bar story. Wow pick were got to pick one. I think defining Well this is. It's further back than ten years but sure for for the finding event was i was involved in a robbery and a camera store. And it's a long story but rather traumatic thing. Somebody was killed and and i got roughed up a little bit and it was it was. It wasn't pleasant. But it was. After that i i realized well putting yourself out there making yourself vulnerable and taking pictures strangers asking or you know. I don't think covertly taking pictures of people is for me. It's just not right so if you're going to ask or you're just going to be obvious bat it you've got to put yourself out and up until that point I didn't know what i was expecting to happen but After that i figured well.

Even if the context is changing from the white house to in this case gracie mansion in new york city. I certainly hope that When you become mayor of new york that you take advantage of the national spotlight there because again the success of new york. It's really as a unique moment. We have been reset so fundamentally as a society energised grappling with what that means and in new york is the the fulcrum of our swing into You know full recovery or into the failure of that right and it's just you know i'm old enough to remember that it was possible to have a new york. That was really screwed up. I mean back in the seventies and eighties. And i forget what year new york really turned around with respective violent crime and just kind of infrastructure.

"Actually have some of those services building and so you can have social workers or addiction counselors actually even a staffing some of these centers so that there are some countermeasures in place. The goal would not frankly beat a turn these hotels into shelters and the way that would be a concentration of of some of the issues that shelters right now face it would be so that there's a whole mix of families and people will have have found that actually to be away for folks who are struggling to have a social context and be in better position to improve right right so what about crime in the city. What's happening there. And there's a spike in many cities of fifty percent or so in the last ten months it's higher here unfortunately and also their rates owed resolution. Which is that the perpetrator. It's been going down. That to me is a very nasty combination. You want the rates of resolution to be going up or staying constant worst case so we need to invest resources in trying to stem the rise and also catch perpetrators one of the things that i always have this working theory on. Is that if there are. Let's say ten robberies that might not be ten robbers be like two robbers who are going around. You know robbing multiple. So when when i see these rises and the fact that many of the crimes have been resolved. I think to myself well. There are some very bad actors who are a physician to strike again and that that to me has to be where you focus your resources is that that a relatively small number of people being apprehended could end up being a significant factor in some of these rates. I'm going to tell a dumb story but like it was this. Is this an experience i had. I ride my bike around new york city a lot not a motorbike like a normal about i've not. You're campaigning on harley.

"Commemorates documents documents or visit and people will want that experience in some way it could be that the makeup of the retail changes. There have been a lot of very significant brands that invested in times square restaurants and whatnot in part because they they thought that it would be worthwhile framing expenditure and and i think that's to new york city because the thought is that you can reach people from all over the country all over the world if you are investing in a times where restaurant for something along those lines so i do think that retail for tourists will be a constant. There are going to be a lot of storefronts that need to get new tenants right now. If you walk new york city streets there are a lot of empty store fronts. And it's unclear whether they're going to end up reopening on their own naturally that there have been some some suggestions around having vacancy taxes for landlords to try and give them some sort of spur to make sure that there's a attendant filled that storefront because it's going to be an issue for a while. Let's talk about crime and homelessness because this is obviously not just problems for new york. City's all over. The country are seen a spike in both the stories. Out of san francisco are Testifying to something like a free fall condition there with respect to quality of life again with with respect to both variables crime and homelessness. Let's take homelessness. I just what what is the reality of of homelessness now in new york and what would be a response to. It could fundamentally changed the picture. Well the first thing you want to do is try and keep the problems getting worse. Because there are many new yorkers who are in position to potentially get addicted if the moratorium is extended or if they don't have legal representation and it turns out if you have legal representation. The odds of you're staying in your apartment go way way up so one thing the city should be doing is making sure that any tenant who wants a lawyer can have one. We should be trying to keep people in their homes. The city has had a program for while around emergency rent assistance. That makes perfect sense where you spend a little bit of money trying to keep people in their home. It ends up saving the city a lot of money on homelessness services and the homelessness problem is growing in new york city order vanity. You have about fifty seven thousand people in shelters right now in new york and in some cases new york is spending tens of thousands of dollars a head per year on providing shelter to folks because the over burdened shelter system in some cases even buying hotel rooms because that that was the only shelter that could be found. So this is a situation where you want to try and keep getting worse over one and then number two. We need to develop more sustainable affordable housing. Which has been a constant problem in new york city because no one actually has wanted affordable housing to be developed in their neighborhood when the proposal comes up. They're all for it in the political abstract then when it was like. Hey like how about your your district. People didn't like it one big opportunity here. There are few things one can do. One is we should be expanding. Something called safe haven beds which are beds that are provided by nonprofits in some cases religiously affiliated nonprofits that in many cases unless people prefer to homeless shelters. Some homeless people really do not want to go to a shelter. But they'll go to a seafood so any of those beds are worth waiting. Golden we should be trying to expand capacity but the the other big move would be to quickly re purpose of vacant hotels. That are going out of business right and left frankly right now in new york city if.

"How does the mayor respond to this. I mean having teachers in the streets saying they're afraid of dying in the classroom seems like a pretty important obstacle so at the height of this period of resistance and protests and fear and skepticism about the reopening plan. The mayor kind of has to come up with a way. good morning. Everybody of common people down while this morning. We're going to talk about the most important piece of reopening the city restarting this city. And that's starting our schools up again and so he comes out and he says. Okay folks i hear you and we understand the anxiety. We understand the fear because this city been through so much. And i have a plan to keep you safe. It isn't safe. We don't do it. It's as simple as that and so he kind of introduces this menu of safety measures. So what are we doing. You've heard some of it before you wearing a mask all day. It's social distancing free priority testing. It's having a nurse in every school building making sure that teachers kids skaff all have the personal protective equipment. And then finally he says. We will not reopen our schools in less the city Infection rate is below three percent. You have my word that i'm going to shut down the whole school system. If we ever reach. Three percent positivity So this is the moment that the three percent rule comes into play exactly. And how does the mayor explain how he arrived that three percent number. What it's based on so at the time the number that was kind of floating around there for when your alarm bell should start to go off and when schools and other things may not be safe as five percent five percent a lot. And i think basically part of what happened is that the mayor has team looked at that number and they said to the city. We're going to do you one better. We're to come in below five percent as a symbol. It was a promise it was a way of saying i'm going to set the lowest most conservative threshold. That's out there. And that is proof that i'm taking school safety really really seriously in this pandemic and does it work. Does this three percent number start to assuage the doubts and anxieties of these teachers of these parents. So i think in combination with some other safety measures that teachers were fighting for. We begin to see away a path to reopening. The deaths are being rearranged. The mass in the clorox wipes are coming in and we're so far from three percent at this point. I mean we have days were under one percent that it seems like oh. We are in good shape and sure enough in late september. They opened the doors of the school building. All of a sudden for the first time since early march you saw kids with backpacks walk into schools. They had their masks on but they were so clearly delighted to be there and actually for about eight weeks. It seems to be going pretty well. More and more parents are coming out and saying god. My kid is happier than they've been in a long time and warmer teachers including many teachers who were really really concerned about safety over. The summer are saying i feel like i'm making so much progress because we're in person and yes. This is not easy but something here is working. And i think it was a very proud moment for the mayor but it didn't last very long after about a few weeks back in the classroom we begin to see the numbers slowly slowly slowly but steadily tick up and no longer. Are we hovering around one percent but forgetting to one point five and sometimes we're getting to two and then all of a sudden everyone is like wait. Remember the three percent Thing that we haven't talked about for weeks or months because the city's been doing so well. That number is kind of in our sights but just to be clear. Even this number of the city. Wide corona virus positivity rate is starting to creep up inside these schools. Does it remain safe right. I mean the mayor is surprised. Actually pleasantly surprised by how safe the schools are one point. One of his top public health officials said public schools are among the safest places to be in new york city. You know outside of your own home but the school system is not gonna shut down because the schools are unsafe. Once we hit three percent no matter what the entire school system's gonna shut down anyway.

"I didn't go into the marathon with a plan. I know that sounds absolutely bizarre. I had a lot of thoughts about running of virtual marathon. You know when the pandemic started back in march. If you were to tell me that i was going to run a virtual race on my own. No crowds no water stations. No nothing. there's no way. I would have believed you. But i think you guys know me and i know me and although at that point i couldn't have imagined it. It's certainly not something outside the box for my character to say. Finally you know what why the hell not over the last few months i was running a lot If you've been following along with the show then you know that. I've hit a lot of really great moments With my stride and with running this year appeared in the half marathon Doing virtual cd's on my own earlier. This year i did a mile time. Trial where i finally broke that six minute barrier that i have been striving for and so it really got to a point out with all the running that i was doing and all the mileage that was already in my wheelhouse. I just decided that i would go for it again. Like i started this episode. Saying i didn't have a plan i didn't think all right. I'm gonna run this virtual marathon. And i'm gonna do it obscenely well and i'm going to race it and none of that. I just thought you know what. This'll be something that i can do for one day. Something that i can look forward to something that is like literally an activity which when you say that out loud it sounds kind of ridiculous like activity. I'm going to do next weekend. I'm gonna go run a marathon. Ha an odd bird anyway so the training was definitely there so the only thing that i had to integrate to make sure that i was ready for this offer and that i was staving off. Potential injury by taking on too much was ramping up the weekends so i added in. I believe it was a sixteen mile. Long run an eighteen mile long run a twenty mile long run and that was it leading up to that saturday morning the prep on marathon week a lot like my normal prep except i didn't have to go to an actual race expo. I was trying to make sure that i was getting to bed early. I also made a concerted effort to make sure that. I had all the gear that i wanted to wear And that was kind of fun. Because i think for the first time in a long time at those gear picks were absolute. No brainers like at this point. I really homed in on my favorite pieces. I know what makes me feel fast. What makes me feel confident. And i will link to all of that stuff in the show notes to this episode. There were some logistics. That i had to take into consideration when it came to setting up so to speak this marathon unlike a normal effort. Obviously the course is outlined for you so being a new yorker Who has spent years in years running around the city. I had the opportunity to design my own. Course so i think i tried like three four five different routes and landed on the goldilocks route. That felt right for me based on a few things first of all. I knew that this route involved. Some of my favorite parts of new york. I this year specifically have loved running the perimeter of central park not anywhere inside the actual park. But actually if you look on a map of new york city the rectangle of sidewalks surrounding the park. That area has a dedicated bike lane on the south west and north side and also a big enough sidewalk so that i don't have to run in the street with cars at any point so i liked starting off the effort with that rectangle so that i would have space to move and it would be very unlikely that i would need to stop for traffic when it came to planning the rest of the route. I didn't feel like it was an actual marathon for me in new york city. If i wasn't tackling at least one bridge and you're going to tackle one bridge and you've gotta tackle another because you've got to come into manhattan so the route as i mentioned a lap clockwise of the parameter of central park across central park north over the first avenue south on first avenue till i got to the queensboro over the queensboro into asturia through long island city. All the way through brooklyn to the manhattan bridge back in over the manhattan bridge down and up the west side highway finishing around fifty fifth street. That's my route. All linked to the strava from this day see can see what that really looks like. Okay gearing up for the route planning the route something else. I had to do pre race. That i wouldn't have to have done before next up. Logistics in terms of finding friends that would be around to help me hydrogen fuel. I was wearing shorts with two sets of pocket. So i knew. I could carry some gumy's with me for this race in particular. I chose to use the cliff blocks and two sleeves fit inside my pockets. But other than that. I wasn't carrying my own water or electrolytes for this race. I leaned into the element. Electrolytes if you've never heard of element. I've talked about them on a few episodes right now. They are my new schtick like i cannot stop drinking as the orange salt favor as my absolute favorite. If you're interested in trying element for yourself a little plug here definitely do it head on over to drink element dot com slash hurdle again. That's drink l. m. n. t. dot com slash hurdle. I've tried a lot of stuff before. I keep coming back to this. Trust me you will not regret it. Okay so dispersed electrolyte packets. I figured out with friends where i could meet them. I figured out with another friend who could meet me at the end with warm clothes because it was going to be a chilly day. And if i hadn't done that that would have been a huge regret. I literally probably would have ended up like intensive care and that was it from a logistics perspective The night before standard personal pasta party. Wild try saying that three times fast and then that was it. It was go time and Once more. I didn't know what was going to happen. I had an inkling if things went a certain way from the get go that i might try to go for something big but i also had a realistic expectation of the fact that i was running. Twenty six point two miles on an unsanctioned course where i might have to stop. Anything could happen like there were just so many variables. But i also believe that. I'm just that right kind of crazy that wanted to believe that i could do something ridiculous. It makes me smile saying that.

"That are very different from. What kind of different things the example doctoroff gives is something he tried at the beginning of the Bloomberg administration, right after the nine eleven terrorist attacks in neighborhoods near the world trade. Center in Lower Manhattan, vacancy rates were as high as forty five percent. You know when people said, they're never going to come back to a graveyard. We said you know what if you? Move back into Lower Manhattan, we will pay fifty percent of your rent for six months in retrospect that looks really cheap. Doesn't it was incredibly inexpensive investment in Lower Manhattan. The vacancy rate went down to two percent and after those incentives wore off, it didn't go back up again. But the difference there is that after nine eleven New York, city received massive federal aid. Doctor? Off rinses had twenty billion dollars in federal funds at his disposal to redevelop downtown Manhattan alone. How much direct federal aid is New York City expecting from the trump administration. The answer to that would seem to be zero or even negative as trump has threatened to cut federal funding. I asked Congressman Max rose to assess the difference between a second trump administration and a Biden administration in terms of federal aid to New York it's enormous. It's enormous. I mean this president and his fully owned subsidiaries like Mitch McConnell walk around hyper politicizing this notion of defunding the police everywhere they go. They talk about it when all the while they are the greatest proponents of defunding the police in the United States of America woody minute. What happens if we don't get state and local eight. COPS fired. Plain and simple. They walk around talking about how much they want schools to get open but they're unwilling to sign the dotted line to get billions of dollars back to New York City schools. So as Congressman Max rose sees it New York is living through another Ford to city drop dead moment. Meanwhile New York Mayor de Blasio has gone to. To request the Authority to borrow five billion dollars to avoid laying off thousands of municipal workers, his request has thus far been denied. The Kim Phillips Fein thinks this may be at least a small blessing in disguise I don't myself see burrowing as a long term solution to these problems partly because it sets up the same dynamic that you saw in the seventies where creditors are then given a greater amount of power over.

"Then either San Francisco or New York, and it's less dense. It's Jacob big door. He is an urban economists University of Washington in Seattle as you likely know Seattle is home to Amazon and Microsoft and other techy firms, and it's different from America's older cities. San Francisco, the density on the West Coast. New York City is the densest city in the United States. Seattle didn't really booming World War Two when it comes to Covid nineteen most American cities find themselves in more of a Seattle position than New York Position Most, American cities aren't very dense. They're more car cities than public transportation cities. A lot of them could pass for New York City suburbs that said Vigdor sees covid nineteen affecting cities like Seattle to imagine the typical workday of an Amazon employees in Seattle. They wake up in the morning in a house that might have cost a million dollars and if it had been in, Pittsburgh, it would be less than half that much. They eat their breakfast and then they go to work and if they're out in the suburbs getting into South Lake Union the neighborhood where Amazon is might take them an hour. And then they work all day and then they go home and that's another hour hour and a half. So that's a lot of commuting people will self report a lower quality of life if they have to endure long commutes Kobe nineteen has essentially wiped out commuting at least for now at least for the kind of jobs can be done from home. Once you start to move to a model where you're not based in an office than the entire need to locate in a place where a lot of heights skilled workers nearby sort of. Evaporates in cities with a concentration of highly skilled workers tend to be expensive cities, and so it could lead to a situation where you've got more innovation happening in different parts of the country and you have people being recruited without the necessity of relocating. This could be good news for smaller cheaper cities also for suburban and rural areas, but it's bad news even more bad news for a big city like New York whose density has lately been working against it. The city is projecting six seven billion dollar deficits out as far as the. I can see that Dan Doctoroff who was deputy mayor for economic development under Newark Mayor Michael Bloomberg in the early two thousands today doctoroff is the CEO of sidewalk labs and he is trying to rally other New York business leaders to prevent a cataclysm. We don't yet know how severe it's going to be an till. We know how long the pandemic GonNa last but the risk that were half is basically shoving the city into a nineteen seventies style vicious cycle, which you don't want to happen in the city is for the city to. Actually shrink in terms of the number of residents, the number of jobs and the number of visitors because when it shrinks the budget gets compressed when that happens quality of life terrier rates and more people leave perpetuating the cycle. That's what happened in New York in the nineteen seventies. New York loses about eight hundred, thousand residents between one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, in one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, and that is the historian Kim Phillips Fein author of the Book Fierce City, which is about New York's fiscal crisis. The fiscal crisis is usually described. An example of governmental overreach and irresponsibility. The idea being that New York's local government was engaged in all manner of wasteful frivolous unnecessary spending and as a result was almost forced into defaulting on its debt and having to declare bankruptcy to Philips sign that is only part of the story. New. York. Did have a problem covering its bills in the nineteen seventies bills that given the nature of New York were unusually large. The Transit System The library system, the park system that tuition-free City University, the network of more than twenty public hospitals as well as an ambitious investment in public health initiatives. All of this is kind of on a scale unusual for American cities in general but that massive expenditure she argues wasn't a primary driver of the crisis. I placed the primary responsibility on the recession that gripped the entire United States in the early seventies the long underlying trend's of deindustrialization and suburbanization. which were driven in part by federal policies on trade and on the kind of structure that supported the development of suburbia this fed the sort of urban flight that a lot of New Yorkers are worried about today wealthier people were leaving the city to go to the surrounding suburbs. People were generating their lively herds in New York but then paying their property taxes to jurisdictions beyond the city limits, the city kept spending on all the services that make a city a city. With declining tax revenues there arose a huge deficit one point, five, billion dollars a year, which was a lot of money back in the nineteen seventies and instead of addressing this openly the mayor of the city and others in the city government begin to quietly borough more and more the mayor at the time was Abraham beame who before he got into politics was an accountant which presumably men he understood the value of not spending beyond your means. But by nineteen seventy five, the city was facing a three billion dollar shortfall and was unable to borrow anymore from creditors. Bankruptcy looked likely if not inevitable. The Republicans running Washington under president Gerald Ford weren't willing to help either here's how the daily news put it in. Perhaps the most famous front page headline in Tabloid History Ford to city. Drop, dead. But the governor of New York Hugh Carey had brought in a savior by the name of Felix Rohatyn Phillip. Jauregui ten was an investment banker who became very involved publicly in the city's efforts to respond to the crisis at he headed up the Municipal Assistance Corporation otherwise known as big Mac which was authorized to sell bonds on behalf of the city that were backed by a special sales tax, and then back would release the money to the city as the city showed progress towards a balanced budget. Big Mac stabilized the. City's finances enough to avoid bankruptcy, but investors were still reluctant to Buy New York City's debt. This led to the creation of the Emergency Financial Control Board, which was state and today that was given final veto power over the city's budget, and this in a way removed final say over New, York spending from the elected officials in the city and put it in the hands of the state. This helps explain why to this day the mayor of New York City has to make a specially nice with Albany people are pretty. Explicit. About the time, the idea is to make it harder for New Yorkers to influence what their city spends money on. New York City finally had.

Do you saw me swear to not let that relationship influence this interview I solemnly swear rose represents new.

I don't care about politics my friend. Not Right now. On employment skyrocketing the economy in disarray people fearful further. Fearful. For their future of their families the time to be thinking about how to help people making government finally work again, people are so disgusted with their government that's on the left, the middle and the right. You recently said there is no reason that every single teacher in New York City should not be tested at least every other day as far as I know that's not even close to happening. It's not happening because a failure of leadership a failure of imagination nobody has confidence in this city right now there's no plan there's no solidarity. There's no resources with a system of pool testing with a system with New York City is acting almost as if it is a venture capitalist, it comes to figuring out the most innovative ways to beat the pandemic investing in them early on with private partnerships and then dramatically scaling them. There's no reason we couldn't be testing every single teacher every other day we asked Mayor de Blasio for an interview but he declined there are at least two reasons why in political circles de Blasio is considered particularly unskilled last year he spent a lot of time outside the city for president even though he had virtually no constituency. He's also managed to annoy the one person a New York City mayor can't afford to annoy the governor of New York Andrew Cuomo. New York mayors have a history of acting like the most powerful person in one of the most important cities in the world which to be honest it's not entirely inaccurate. A lot of the city's leverage runs through Albany the state capital what we need, and what this has not done is we need someone who's willing to exist in reality. Guess what if you want the city the prosper you need the governor. If you want the city to prosper, you shouldn't be at tagging housing them. You should be working with him but as Max rose season, the Basel Administration was failing New York long before covid hit in some ways the mayor and his administration took up a new form of laissez faire economics where they said well, we don't have to invest in the future of this city because people have to stay here, people will need to stay here. People will always come here and build their businesses. We don't have to do anything. Well, that's of course, not the case this is a competitive country and it is a competitive world. During the pandemic New York City's been competing with neighbors like New Jersey and Connecticut, and New York suburbs also Florida and Arizona in Nashville Austin those at least are a few of the places that some New Yorkers have fled to. But how many? The truth is no one really knows yet. Pre pandemic the city's population was eight point three million. The New York Times analyzing cell phone data from that four hundred, twenty thousand people had left the city between March and may most of them wealthier residents with a second home. But that measurement has an obvious limitation leaving the city with your cellphone doesn't mean you won't return especially if you own your home since right now is not the easiest time to sell a New York apartment. Here's another probably better metric since March, roughly two, hundred, fifty, thousand New Yorkers have filed with the post office to change their mailing address. That's about double the number from the same period last year. So that suggests roughly one hundred and twenty-five thousand higher than normal outflows that goes with a significant decline also hard to measure in the number of people moving into new. York. Still in a city of eight point, three million, this doesn't seem to qualify as a mass exodus. To. Get a slightly finer greened look at population outflow. We called up Nancy Wu I'm an economist at St Easy where I look at the trends about real estate and then create analyses to tell stories about the data street easy is listing service used by landlords and renters, buyers, and sellers and real estate agents. It manages a pretty impressive database. I have access to all of the market data on the sales and the rentals listings in the universe of real estate listings in New York, city and what has seen since the. So Manhattan rental inventory as of July there's been thirty seven thousand listings on the market that is a sixty five percent growth from last July and how about in say Queens and Queens you should now has two point, two, million people whereas Manhattan has only one point six, million in Queens there six, thousand, six, hundred listings on the market, and that's a twenty six percent increase from last July. So inventory grew everywhere when looking at the borough level but grew way more Manhattan. So that's some.

"Done it for mortgages. He needs to place a freeze on all rent payments Shitload of people. Like you and me probably certainly me probably you. We don't own property in New York City. We rent property in New York City. We live in rented space. He needs to put a freeze on all rent payments for at least the next ninety days probably longer but he certainly needs to do it. A S A P. I like Governor Cuomo and I've been as I said he's done a great job. He has been providing some leadership when we have been desperate for some not just us as New Yorkers but the whole country. He's been setting example for other governors and other leaders. He needs to put a freeze on rent payments. It's important and I don't know what the Hell I don't know why he hasn't done it yet. He's placed a moratorium on evictions and he's placed a freeze on mortgages but so far he's been silent on the issue of rent now at first someone suggested and I thought it was. I thought made sense. Perhaps we thought he was trying to roll out these provisions incrementally and would place the freeze on rents by at least the end of last week. He didn't he didn't and I was confused and disappointed about it. There was actually a point once towards the end of the week. I think was Friday actually towards the end of his press conference. When I was sure was going to happen I could feel it. I could feel it coming on. And then it didn't look he said. I know this is hard on everyone. A lot of these actions I've taken are making it hard on. Everyone and I wanNA help as many New Yorkers as I possibly can wow. I have no governor Cuomo impression. I want to help as many New York as I can and I thought Oh here comes in and he just went on to talk about placing a moratorium on evasions which we already knew about. Come on come on. He needs to put a freeze on rent. Payments People are not working. They are not making money. No one can pay their rent. He needs to put a freeze on. 'em Now it's funny too. Because in that same press conference he was actually asked why he had not yet put a shelter in place order in effect and his response. He went on a little diatribe. About how words matter he said to this report that you know words matter the way you say things matters it affects people blah blah blah. I agree governor. I agree words do matter. That's why you need to put a freeze on rent payments. You know. A lot of people have been speculating. That well you know. He put a freeze on mortgages and the people who have mortgages those of the people who own the buildings so if they don't have to pay mortgages clearly their tenants won't have to pay rents any did put a moratorium on victims just in case so it's basically the same thing. No that's not the same thing. That's not good enough as governor. Cuomo said words matter. You GotTa be specific. You have to say it so there's no wiggle room so there's no confused and he needs to put a freeze on rent payments words matter that matters that matters facts matter each. Am I wrong about this? No Okay now. Let's talk about trump for just the second now. Not a day goes by when he doesn't do or say something completely stupid completely outrageous and or off the wall. This Week. It was a real doozy. Now I'm sure some of you at some point heard him say something over the course of the week that at face value probably seemed more appalling but for me this is what really got me. I've always known this is a this is a real. This is a pandemic. I've felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic that was trump. Give me listen again. I've always known this is a this is a real. This is a pandemic. I felt. It was a pandemic long before it was called dependency. Let me just point out. He doesn't know what a pandemic is. If you ask them to define pandemic he would probably say you're loser. That's a nasty question. I don't WanNa tell you now. That was Donald Trump Donald trump. Who has been playing down the corona virus from the very beginning. That was him saying. Look this is a pandemic I called. It depends before anyone else. What who? Here's okay let's have some fun here. Let's let's go back in time for a moment shall we? Here's what Donald Trump had to say about this corona virus back in January all the way back in January. We have a totally under control. It's one person coming in from China and we have it under control. It's going to be just fine. That was in January. Okay jump ahead with me. Here's what he had to say in February so just last month about the same corona virus. We pretty much shut it down coming. In from China in April supposedly it dies with hotter weather. Looks like by April. You know in theory when it gets a little warmer it. Miraculously goes very close to a vaccine. We're going down not going very substantially down. We have done an incredible job. We're going to continue to disappear one day. It's like a miracle it will disappear. That was in February..

"I am here. I am weird and we are going to steer clear of fear I was that. Wasn't that pretty impressive? Holy Shit this is not a this is not a test. This is not a ghost. This is not a rerun. I'm actually here in the radio. Free Brooklyn Studio keeping you company every Monday night from ten til midnight. Come HELL OR HIGH WATER. So our studios are more or less closed. I did not break in though. Don't worry I'm not. This is not some rogue. Show it just so happens that I live very close to the studio Buckley. I'm within walking distance. Luckily I have no symptoms. I am not sick. I don't feel a sniffle as of yet and I have no guests so I'm allowed to be here and I needed to be here because this is GonNa fucking kill me. I mean if the if the corona virus doesn't get me and kill me then CEO. Bath hyper then. Let me tell you folks the isolation the mundane repetitive life. We are starting to live. We have no choice but to live the isolation the boredom. The you know tight quarters. It's GonNa kill me. I needed to be here. I WANNA black folks but for the last three plus years averaged get this between fifteen and sixteen thousand steps a day. Yeah it's not that impressive. Most New Yorkers walk a lot we do walk a lot here in this city but having said that the gyms are closed. We're not supposed to go anywhere I've taken about three point three thousand steps today and that's the most taken in the past three days so I'm going crazy. I'm sure you're going crazy. This is a miserable experience and I'm not even talking about the shelter in place. I'm talking about all of it. This is all horrible and I'm not really I mean it's like I understand that complaining about it doesn't do any good for anybody but I just think that sometimes like right now. I think there's something to commiserating together now. I don't I don't think it's a good idea to of course you know dwell on the bad things but there's nothing wrong with venting and recognizing that this fucking sucks more than fucking sucks. It's a scary time. It's a sad time because if you are quarantining or self isolating or all that Shit with you know your significant other. Good for you if you're if you're doing all that with your family good for you but most of us here in. New York City are miserable. Most of us here in New York City are not married. I think I don't know most of the people I know aren't married so we're quarantining and have you ever felt more alone than quarantining alone. I don't think so it's tough. This whole thing is tough. I it stuff for everybody and so I've been thinking about this a lot and I think that part of what makes this whole experience of so kind of way heavy on your shoulders more so than most disasters. Most call Lambada's events that we've had to respond to is the simple fact that we don't know how long this is GonNa last. We don't know how we don't know you can't really plan for it. Because are we going to be held in quarantine for the next two weeks or for the next nine months and when I read headlines Reading headlines that suggest and I have seen these and I don't know if they're spits trying to be witty or clever or informative or both or none of the above. Maybe it's just trying to convey information but when I read headlines that say things like a quote some experts estimating we may need to be in quarantine for a year when you read stuff like that. It is just devastating and it is daunting and it is wears on you. Just the idea. That's an overwhelming sense of dread. When something like nine eleven happens nine eleven the thing about an event like nine eleven? It is horrible. It is devastating. It is something that we would never wish on our worst enemy but the difference is on September twelve. We were on our way to recovery. We knew that something horrible had happened. Something devastating and scary and tragic and just unbelievable. It happened to our country but the second we woke up that next day we all came together and started working towards recovery. Recovery started on September twelfth. This we don't know I don't know we were also helpless people you know we. It seems like every day the news gets worse and worse and it's there are no projected lights at the end of the tunnel and it's it's just unlike anything we've ever experienced before. I imagine it certainly unlike anything other experienced before I mean even we you know we talk on the show every now and then about losing someone losing a parent losing a loved one losing a close friend that I truly believe is the worst thing that could ever happen to you but again as horrible and has lost his empty and kind of broken as you feel the next day day one of life without that person day one of life without them is also day one of recovery. You know I'm a believer that you never fully heal from the loss of a person but you adjust you know what I'm saying. So that's what makes this so different and I think for me personally. That's what makes this so hard. Hard to rep your head around really. That's how I feel about it. I also really really miss my family. It makes me. I see my three little baby nephews on the social media. I missed the crap out of them. I wish I could be there with them for them. They are unlocked down as well. They're either oblivious or scared or maybe they love not going to school. I don't know I wish I knew. I wish I was there to know. Yeah Yeah so however. You're feeling whether you're angry whether you're scared whether you're sad. All of the above probably tonight. Hopefully we can not dwell on it but maybe I think there's something to commiserating together and I hope we will. That's my plan so I started my new job. I'm officially A. I don't even know if I should say 'cause I've never actually said the name of the company but anyway I started my new job. It's going fine. We all have to work from home. So that's kind of a weird way to start but at least I have a job. I'm not about to complain. Most of my friends you the job that I had to quit in order to take this noon position. I had to email my boss and be like. I'm so sorry I'm GonNa have to cancel these next these scheduled bookings and I listed out like twenty events will. Most of those events have now been canceled. And I can't help but worry for my friends who live who get by by living in the GIG economy by being artists by being bartenders on the side by being teachers on the side. They have no income right now. Sure they can all flock to the unemployment website but it keeps crashing because everyone's talking to the unemployment website and how long is that really going to sustain them and I worry about people in you know when we do get through this? Who's to say everything's just GonNa pick right up pick right up where we left off? A restaurant is going to be able to reopen. I mean I can't help but wonder but I don't want to be a complete Debbie Downer. Having said that let's talk about what's making news tonight. We're only going to really talk about one thing. Can you guess what it would be? Yep Tom Brady is leaving the New England patriots. That's true but that's not going to focus on. Let's talk about this corona crisis so the viruses now hit all fifty states last count about forty one thousand one hundred sixty seven people in the United States have been confirmed to have the corona virus though many other cases are probably out there just undetected of those reported cases. Four hundred and eighty five have died with ninety five of those deaths in Washington state one hundred and fifty seven of them in New York thirty-five in California and so on and so on four states have now ordered shelter in place orders New Jersey California New York and Illinois. California Governor Gavin newsom ordered a lockdown of the states nearly forty million residents telling them to stay home until further notice according to politico those who violate the directive could face misdemeanor finds according to politico. But it's not a full lockdown that would actually forbid those individuals from leaving their homes. I mean people are still allowed to go to the grocery store. Gas Station drugstores pharmacies. What's the difference between a drugstore and pharmacy beats the hell out of me? Restaurants bars are closed. They are still allowed to provide takeout and delivery. Though a lot of them have stopped. People are allowed to leave their homes in walk outside provided they stay six feet away from others and it's gotten worse than that. Nursing homes and hospitals are banning visitors airports are in pandemonium after enhanced screening measures for those returning from Europe. It went into effect. Hospitals are preparing for a Su- NAMI of patients. Canceling elective procedures. Repurposing their facilities and adding many extra beds as they possibly can. As I said last week folks let's not sugarcoat it. This pandemic has brought New York City to its knees. It's crazy late night. Shows like the tonight show late night. The daily show really all talk shows based here in New York City have suspended production Saturday night. Live is on permanent hiatus. The bright lights of Broadway have gone dark the Vin dark now for over a week. We've already been through this. I'M NOT GONNA re iterating. Wildlife is tough right now. Governor Cuomo has been setting a nice example of what leadership actually looks like giving a detailed informative press briefing daily so as to keep the people informed of where we are in terms of the situation and what to expect moving forward in addition to the social distancing in shelter in place orders. Cuomo also said the state will be sending one million in ninety five masks to New York City and five hundred thousand to Long Island to help protect healthcare workers amidst shortages of proper masks and other medical supplies. We'll talk about that more in a moment. You know. Governor Cuomo has done an excellent job and most people have pointed that out. And who am I to criticize him? Right I mean I love. I love everybody. I never have any complaints. But actually that's Horse Shit. The truth is I really don't have much to criticize. I just have one thing that is bothering me. It is bothering me a lot. It has been bothering me for a while. He needs to place a freeze on all rent payments. He's done it for mortgages. He needs to place a freeze on all.

"This is Andy Mills. It is Monday night and all of the bars in New York City. I've been told that they have to close at eight. Pm and so. I've come here to son's bar in Red Hook Brooklyn my favorite bar. Maybe in the entire world it is At the edge of Brooklyn right on the waterway You can see the Statue of Liberty often the distance number. Go spend the last minutes of being able to be at a bar in New York City With whoever's inside of me tonight just tell me Your name. What you're what you're doing here tonight. My name is Henrik so I was actually going to go like Kia to get like some stuff. Even though I'm not like you know trying to be smart about it. Like knockout side. I was like all right. You know I just want some stuff for my key I get there and you know I get to I key on. This dude comes out is like it's close. It's like they shut it down. It's closed now. It's like what do you mean it's like five. Pm Unlike and he was like no. It's closed So it's like okay. Wow this is really happening. I got shut down. So it's like you know it's like all right might as well just go to. Sonny's you know this this bar we're at right now which is like my favorite bar so because this is your close they're closing it down tonight like eight. I believe so. This is like my last chance to get out and be free before. I'M GONNA be inside for like I don't know how long I guess yeah. Yeah now we're just go like we stocked up on food so I think we're going to be good for a while. Yeah for just one last round before they close. We realized we were in the neighborhood. Sonny's is probably still openly. This is the last half hour we got. We got to do something. We look at the clock. Oh my God. There's a half hour left. GotTa get the last year. Yeah we gotta have the last drink here. This is going to be our last dream for the next four to eight weeks. If not more like it has to be Sonny's right and I'm going to keep drinking at home. Let me ask you this. What are you gonNA miss from being in a bar? What'S THE DIFFERENCE Of course just bumping into a friend or meet a new person senior like the classic bartender everything that Bar has offer. You know. You're outside of your house which is good if you live in a tiny like shoebox apartment that a lot of us. Do you know. Yeah little glass of wine just like a small one. Yeah well it's Molin Shawn W. Name where we're at right now. My Name is tuna on Sunday sport. And what do you do here at? Sonny's bar well. I run this fine establishment while I should say on this point establishment. Do your own it and you run it. I'd run it. Well thank you. How are you feeling? What are you thinking right now? Well I've been through a crisis or two before and there's one thing to fight you know the new boogeyman. Which is this virus. Another to cope with the fear that it instills in all of us. And what I try to concentrate on is how to take care of your emotional health because the fear is the alarm clock that wakes us up into action but if we keep that alarm clock ringing we'll just drive us crazy and we can take care of business. This will pass. Believe it or not it will pass. It's like I'm the Ouija and then there's an agent proverb that a love that goes like this. Either we'll go well or it will pass and those are two good options and we will get through this and this special. In New Yorkers we will get through. Because we're hardy bunch in. Oh we just buckled down and get through stuff. I guess we got to close this place down Oh I think we got about fifteen minutes in which I will enjoy my little glass of wine. Cheers all right well. It's just a couple of minutes after eight. The music has been turned off. The patrons have been asked to go home and just me and the bartender and the owner speaking in Norwegian to her region friends who are now putting on their coats tuna now that the bars closed emptied. Like how are you feeling about financial aspect of being closed for a week? Two weeks three weeks a month maybe two months. I do have to say that the finances Roy Ostracizing me out more than the virus. It's like I feel like we have a plan in place for how to try to prevent the spread of the virus but we need a financial plan unless my main worry right now. It's a big uncertainty when you look out at all the other businesses in New York from restaurants to taxi drivers. Like how common do you think that feeling that you're having is? I think it's in everybody's heart you know. I'm in New York City. It's a place where people hustle. We're I think every New Yorker is a hustler unless you would just born into money you know how to hustle otherwise you just go back home again but that being said we also know how to get through a crisis and we've been tested before and this is a test will take it day by day and you know if you feel like you are paralyzed and can't do something about the situation. You're in you know if you can't take that first step trying to lift the foot and you can't lift your foot try to wiggle toe and we'll get through it..
