Comments of the Week: One Liners

This week, we’re publishing very short comments, in celebration of brevity.

re: School Schedule Changes Again — Older Kids Won’t Be Back Until October

Will says:
Don’t forget it was because of Bloomberg that we got De Blasio, people were sick of him too. Every action has an opposite reaction.

re: Macy’s Gives More Details on Thanksgiving Parade; Balloon Inflation Cancelled

JC says:
I’m seriously worried that Xmas trees will not be sold on the streets of the UWS this year…

re: City Pauses Relocation of Homeless Men After Outcry

Agnes Frank says:
The correct spelling is “mastUrbate”

re: Cars Keep Driving Down the West End Avenue ‘Open Street’, Endangering Pedestrians

Sal says:
Who cares, its a city, go to the park if you dont like cars. Just shut up.

re: Openings & Closings: Beacon Bar, Manhattan Mailroom, Moscot, OsteoStrong, Bistro Cassis’ Replacement

Ethan says:
The list of Upper West Side “grownup” bars has been dwindling for years, and the demise of Beacon Bar is another nail in that particular coffin. Where’s a sexagenarian supposed to get a drink nowadays?

re: Citizen Shofar-Blowers Will Announce the New Year Around the UWS This Sunday

Rachelle Pachtman says:
Wishing you a sweet, healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.❤️😇🌈🌷🍒🍷🦄🐕🐱🧸

      “In celebration of brevity”: President Calvin Coolidge was a man of few words and known as “Silent Cal”. The famous quote attributed to him may, or may not, be apocryphal. Told by a participant at a dinner that “I bet I could get three words out of you”, Coolidge is said to have responded “You lose”.

    3. Juan says:

      Not sure where to post this – whatever happened to the show about the co-op that WSR posted that was filmed early in the pandemic where there were about six characters who were very typical UWS and none were actually in the same place? I was hoping they would make another episode. It wasn’t Must See TV but it was entertaining and very representative of our neighborhood.

    5. Jo Baldwin says:

      There is no gravity; the whole world sucks.

      This is Uptown Christmas Trees. We’re ready to go. We have protocols in place but the City is dragging it’s feet re: permission. Contact the Mayor’s office and Parks and let them know you want trees on the sidewalks. Merry Christmas (hopefully). We will also have online ordering.

      Brevity? Gee, how ironic considering the last 3 years, 10 months, and 14 days seemed like decades to the majority of Americans. And for virtually every Westsider, trumpism has been almost 4 winters of our collective discontent.
