You are here

Stone Harbor
 - 
The day before an event, when 96th Street is already closed to traffic, they dig up Third Avenue and close that road too. They had all last month to dig up Third Avenue and do what they had to do.

I am sure that it was not a planned occurrence. Now that we part-time locals and tourists are here, the borough would not do something like this unless they had to. Tourists are a vital part of our economy afterall.

your not part=time locals YOUR still a tourist .to become a part-time local you have to be here for 9 months NOT 3 months .PLUS OWNING A HOUSE down here .does not count as being a part-time local .YOU have to live in it for those 9 months.THAT means 24/7 not JUST WEEKENDS

I can tell when it is tourist season around here .all the whiners come here and post.but ARE TO SCARED TO DO IT IN REAL LIFE

Ben Rattleberg

Not sure what a "part=time" is, maybe you can enlighten us. Anyway, WE ARE JUST AS LOCAL since it is our tax money that keeps Stone Harbor in business, not people that have been reduced to living in their family's home. Sound familiar Mr. Stockbroker or what ever imaginary life you claim you had? So why don't you sit back and relax now that the smart people are here to run OUR town.

WHINE WHINE .THAT IS ALL YOU DO .I WAS BEHIND YOU TODAY AND HEAR YOU AGAIN WHINING ABOUT HOW BAD your TOWN AS YOU PUT IT IS RUN .get some BALL AND RUN TO CHANGE IT ,i WAS NOT REDUCED INTO LIVING AT THE FAMILY HOME i WAS LEFT IT WHEN THE TRUE OWNERS PASSED AWAY AS IN MY PARENTS AND GRANDMOTHER ..SO ONCE AGAIN WHINER THINK OF ANOTHER bs story to save YOUR tourist face here

Ben Rattleberg

You want me to buy a "ball" and do what, play? Let us adults run OUR town of Stone Harbor. Also, please learn some basic grammar. I will be at OUR next counsel meeting. I will be the one in a suit. You will not be hard to find in your clown suit, since that is the image you present to the world, IF you go to them. Actually, I should ask if you even understand them.

whine whine .why not throw your hat in the ring and run for one of those seats or the mayor .maybe mrs rich can teach you how to throw lies and then try and play victim when caught.oh I do go to every town meeting .I go there to watch you clowns make fools out of yourselves

Ben Rattleberg

Ah what a beautiful day, one in which I will enjoy a walk on MY beach in MY town of Stone Harbor. As for Mrs. Rich, you obviously do not know her or, as evidenced by your comedic rants, much else about OUR town. OUR leaders do a good job running SH. It people like you who are the problem. I am very pleased with how they lead.

that comment just sealed your bs .I knew mrs rich and i also knew she IS only out for herself NOT this town .case in point that 4 million dollar parking lot.THAT MONEY could have be used somewhere else.does this town really need a parking lot .that will sit unused after all the tourist leave.YOU as a taxpayer can see my point there

BACK ON TO MRS RICH .you ONLY SEE HER WHILE YOUR DOWN HERE .I AS A RESIDENT SEE HER EVERYDAY

oh lets add the buying of the pebbles total waste of taxpayer money.hey lets buy the pebbles move everything over there and then let it sit empty 80% OF THE YEAR .THE OTHER 20% IS BEING OPEN FOR THE SUMMER

Ben Rattleberg

I certainly must disagree with about Mrs. Rich. As for Peebles, I believe that in the long run, it is a good move for Stone Harbor to preserve all that is good about our town. I am sure that history will reflect well on this move. This, like many other ventures in life may not be cheap, but I believe will prove sound. Please do not freak out at this question, but have you ever entertained running for office? Since rum runner is likely not your proper name, I will only inquire once so as not to hit a sore subject if that is the case.

I will say this if i did run YOU as a second home owner would not like the platform i would run on .as in NO destroying home you only live in for half a year .if you want to destroy any home older then before 1990 YOU would have to be a year round resident and it most look like houses of old stone harbor .not these eyesores we have now
on to mrs rich you can believe what you want she does put up a great poker face to get things she wants as well as people to like her

Ben Rattleberg

Well, well, well you certainly do not respond well to mature thought or offers of civility. I want you to know that people like you DO NOT BELONG IN OUR TOWN. You are part of the problem. It is probably a good thing that you do not get involved with the politics of my town. I will likely be here on a more steady basis in the near future and YES I will likely be running for office. Until then, I will continue to network and build my political base.

In time, my friend, in time. Until then, I will continue to attend council meetings and support my town as best as I can.
