Just stay away from Washington Square Park:

Wow, pre-Giuliani Washington Square Park would have made his head explode.

Speaking of having your mind blown, I was disembarking from the subway at 242nd Street this past weekend when I was greeted by my own likeness on an anti-bike lane flyer!

Broadway Community Alliance

See?

Me

It's not surprising they have "not heard any complaints" about the Broadway redesign in the Bronx because it's an improvement all across the board.

As for the "Broadway Community Alliance," that appears to be a pseudonym for Laura Spalter, a CB8 member who blamed the 12 people who have been killed on Broadway since 2010 for their own deaths at one meeting about the project.

Moving on, a driver improperly using the HOV lane on Staten Island tried to pull a Marty Golden:

HOV

Jerome Jeffery, 38, of Van Nostrand Avenue, Jersey City, was curbed by a New York State trooper in the vicinity of the Clove Road exit on the Staten Island Expressway westbound at about 4:10 p.m. on Wednesday, according to the criminal complaint.

The trooper pulled the suspect over for allegedly being the only person in his vehicle in the carpool lane.

Jeffery allegedly then showed a fake New York City Police Department identification card with a photo of the himself, a shield number and the name “Jerome Woods."

“I work in the transit division,” Jeffery allegedly told the trooper, according to the complaint.

Time to invest in a mannequin.

And speaking of Marty Golden, another local elected official has accrued an impressive number of school zone speed camera violations:

Sounds like the work of some kind of "alliance."
