I need the entire world to take part in this movement the old-fashioned way: by shouting out windows, screaming at the top of their lungs. Because what is happening in New York is happening all over the world.

Joseph Keckler


Musician and performance artist

I'm on a kick to turn down music in restaurants and bars so we can liberate conversation and stop paying to be tortured. They crank it up because they think people buy more drinks when the music is loud. It's true, people do buy more drinks — in a desperate attempt to ameliorate the distress they feel at not being able to communicate with the human in front of them! How many times must you find yourself inches from some possibly great mind of your — or any — generation who has been reduced to monosyllables, grotesque gesticulations, and facial contortions that convey all the nuance of an emoticon? The NYPD should immediately halt all other programs to focus solely on the issue of café volume control so that intellectual hubs may again spring forth in our great city. I can't wait to watch some toughie in an overcoat bursting into a bistro and flashing a badge that says "shhh." End the violence! Lest anyone think I'm showing signs of early-onset curmudgeonliness, I want to state that I do hope to see more unregulated gyration, orgies, and graffiti this year. Even in combo.

Hold landlords responsible for the condition of their properties and ban non essential traffic from Manhattan.  Make the waterfront free and accessible to all citizens. Put more benches in place for those of us who need to sit and rest while walking about.

Is that Tax Break Truce comment a joke? I'm sure surrounding states would stay open for business and jobs for their citizens.

@villagevoice Stabilize rent by making it affordable again. The cost of rent is too high for the average wage. Cost of living is killing NYC

@villagevoice I'd set back the process of gentrification downtown by, like, 15years so that 'hoods retained character instead of j crews

Build separate, protected bike lanes on all major avenues running north and south in Manhattan. And start ticketing taxis, trucks and other vehicles when they park in existing bike lanes, as NY law mandates.

@DocOzee@ChazJSCould it possibly have something to do with two 110-story office buildings collapsing nearby?  With raging fires that were not battled as the firefighters were concentrating on trying to rescue people from the prior collapses?

@Raelenefjlo Maybe I could---I've been on TV---but I don't like the work. My niece works in that field and loves it.
