Recommending 199 zone right now is so foolish. They haven't figured out how they will relieve the overcrowding, WL is crazy (did not clear this year, kids were almost sent to 191) - they are going to rezone and people will be screwed. [ Reply | More ]

I live in the zone and bought on 87th St because the apartment was amazing and undervalued, and saw nothing that could even compare in the 87/9 zones. My DC is 3 now and we aren't 100% sure we will send him there but I have heard good things about the school and that it's getting even better. That said, there are several low income housing buildings in the zone too, and those aren't going anywhere. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I work with many people, and am directly responsible to a Board of 15. Of the dozens of people I work with and am responsible to on a regular basis, two of them garner an inordinate amount of my attention and intellectual energy because they're the only two who will call me and tell me how I did this or that wrong, and not the way they would have done it, without offering to fix it. They'll be pleasant enough, but every so often they just call or write with unabashed criticism. I suspect that they're both doing it on purpose; one deliberately, the other just because no one has ever pushed back on her doing it. I could quit this job tomorrow if I wanted, so it's not like I'm terrified of getting fired.

It's obnoxious to text on Friday, give people some time and space. But it was worse when it was Brearley for sure. Just like it's worse to post a pic of a Mercedes on FB and write "so excited about our first car in the city!" than to do the same with a Hyundai. [ Reply | More ]

for me, i find it hard to trust people who are rude to wait staff/service people and people who really dislike animals (i don't own any pets btw...my dog isn't clawing at you. but people who are like seriously disgusted by animals in general. i think it's strange.) [ Reply | More ]

That's interesting, because I have a good friend who is a really good person in every way - she is kind, she volunteers, she is compassionate - but in restaurants or hotels she can be so rude to the workers. Like, if she is displeased about something that is out of their control she will make snide remarks right in front of them. It' super embarrassing. [ Reply | More ]

I take huge umbrage at people who answer the health insurance phone or who deliver our oil (and ran us out three times during a dreadful winter) and I yell.

try the brands COS for mid-end and M. Patmos, Maria Cornejo for high end. Since you already have accessories keep doing your thing, unless you want to buy some fun new stuff. Try a Marni necklace. [ Reply | More ]
