While you might think a lot of accidents happen @ troy and empire, it does’nt hold a light to schenectdy, empire and lefferts blvd. Since I’ve been working in ems for the area for about 2 years I have helped about 8 injured passengers, so plz when turning from empire blvd south (towards East N.y Ave) plz remember theres a light on lefferts blvd thats red.

Why don’t they finally put up a turning light?!?! how many more accidents have to occur on this corner, until someone wakes up and does something?

You know we’ve been seeing alot of this stuff lately –you could almost use old pics! Webby they’re all the same –WHY ARE PEOPLE FLYING DOWN EMPIRE? Speed limits or bumps should be installed and
the cops who are walking should be enforcing them!!!

theres nothing wrong with jews being worrieda bout one another, if anything its a good thing, and why are you so worried wat ppl will think? u think thats why ppl dont like jews? maybe if we stand with out heads staight and be true to urselves as jews and chassidim, we wont have sucha bit“anti -semitism” prblom. and besides, its something that we cant realy control, jsut act yourself and stop being so worried about wat everyones else thinks( pokitical corectness is stupid and dishonest). and obvioulsy everyone wants to kwno if theier jewish or not, wen someone si related to you, it makes a world of a difference, not aht we dont care about other ppl, but wereall related so we have a natrul soft spot, and if you dont, jsut get more intouch with yourself, go see manis freidman, he’ll hlep you.

To Disgrace:

No one said they don’t care unless the people involved are Jewish.
Ever heard of the expression, “blood runs thicker than water”? People just care more about one of their bretheren. That’s reasonable, no?

In any case, there is a mitzvah of Ahavas Yisrael, but there is no mitzvah of “Ahavas Goy”.

To: Disgrace
1st of all ppl are just wondering if they were jewish not because if they werent jewish then it doesnt matter, but because if they were jewish it matters more. your have a problem with that?!
2nd of all non jewish ppl hate us anyway! weather u like it or not!
