‘Escape From New York’ Version 2020

It’s not just hedge funds and plutocrats that are escaping New York City. Entire neighborhoods in prime areas are being wrecked.

New York Post reports:

Due to increasingly squalid conditions on the Upper West Side, including two new homeless shelters packed with junkies and registered sex offenders, longtime dwellers are departing the Big Apple with no plans to ever return.

The Lucerne, on 79th Street and Amsterdam, and Hotel Belleclaire, on 76th Street and Broadway, were recently converted into homeless shelters, with nearly 300 vagrants between them. …

“I have definitely seen more crime, drugs and harassment in one week than in my whole experience growing up here,” Upper West Sider Bess Fern. “I don’t want to see a child get hurt or raped, before they realize maybe it was a mistake to put [hundreds of] drug addicts and sex offenders near schools in the most dense residential population in the city.”

This discordian trend of ruining functional neighborhoods is being spurred on multiple fronts.

Latest Diversity Scheme Pulls Poor into Affluent Suburbs

In some cases, it begins with the emptying of jails. This trend started several years ago, when a decision was made to early release prisoners from Rikers Island, prompted by a renewed focus on racial politics.

First, They Let Thousands of Illegal Immigrants In. Now, They’re Letting Thousands of Prison Inmates Out.

Now, jail releases are being done en mass, using the scamdemic as an excuse.

Once the criminals and mentally disturbed are released back on the streets, where can they go?

In New York, they’re being bused into Manhattan from East Village shelters.

(July 27, 2020) The first yellow school bus carrying men from the shelters arrived [at the West Side Lucern hotel] just before 10 a.m. on a Monday, and buses continued to trickle in roughly every half-hour over the course of the morning and afternoon. Each bus let off about a dozen men, most of whom walked into the hotel carrying a couple bags of belongings. TEXT/PHOTO: West Side Rag

The Business Model in Cities Run by 5th Columnists

“New York Magazine” in 2013 reported on the business model being utilized to drive the Fifth Columnists discordian destruction of more vibrant neighborhoods. In an article entitled “Why Run a Slum If You Can Make More Money Housing the Homeless,” the operations of the Jewish Podolsky family were described.

Fifth Column

[A] clandestine group or faction of subversive agents [foreign or domestic] who attempt to undermine a nation’s solidarity by any means at their disposal. … A cardinal technique of the fifth column is the infiltration of sympathizers into the entire fabric of the nation under attack and, particularly, into positions of policy decision and national defense. From such key posts, fifth-column activists exploit the fears of a people by spreading rumours and misinformation, as well as by employing the more standard technique of espionage and sabotage.Encyclopedia Britannica

After years battling city hall as slum lords, in July 2011, a nonprofit called Housing Solutions USA was incorporated. The Podolskys were shifting their tactics, turning from an antagonist into a customer. Catering to the city’s demand for shelter beds, their properties could produce revenues like a perpetually booked hotel. Typically, existing, paying, partially government-subsidized, low-income tenants had their leases run out and were terminated by the Podolskys. They were forced out to make way for fully government subsidized, high-revenue producing homeless tenants.

In August 2012, Housing Solutions won an “emergency” contract to operate a shelter on West 95th Street, which has since expanded into a five-year, $47 million deal. The city pays $122 a night — or more than $3,600 a month (in 2013) — for each cubicle-size room to Housing Solutions, which in turn directs the rental income back to the Podolskys.

“The for-profit guys come and buy a hotel, empty it out, and say to the city, ‘Hey, we can get you the rooms tonight,’” says George Mc­Donald, founder of the DOE Fund, a nonprofit shelter operator, and a recent candidate for mayor. “It’s all about business, and it’s big money. It’s not nickels and dimes; it’s hundreds of millions of dollars.”

A list obtained via a Freedom of Information request suggests the industry is dominated by a handful of competitors. There’s Shimmie Horn, whose father, a notorious slumlord, willed him an empire of hotels. There is a consortium of investors who administer a portfolio of tenement shelters from an unmarked office above a Brooklyn laundromat. Most players operate through shell companies and front men, obscuring their interests, and the Podolskys are particularly secretive.

But the evidence suggests the family is among the largest shelter providers. It is a tight-knit firm, employing many Podolsky siblings, spouses, and children. Jay is in charge of strategy. (“Like, here’s a piece of crap,” said the former employee, “and how can I turn it into something profitable?”) His older brother “Stewie,” a bearded tough-talker with a taste for Italian sports cars, handles acquisitions. They are active in Jewish charities.

Fast forward to today, and we see Shimmie Horn’s boutique hotels, which are presumably empty due to the scamdemic, being converted to homeless shelters, including the housing of Class 2 registered sex offenders next to schools and playgrounds.

There are about 700 hotels in New York City. One hundred and thirty-nine of them are occupied by homeless people. That means almost 20 percent of the city’s hotels are operating — at least in part — as homeless shelters. Sixty-three of those hotels took in homeless people from the city over the last three months because of COVID-19 (aka emptying jails and institutions over “social distancing concerns”).

Here is a representative suite at one of these boutique hotels that’s now housing the homeless courtesy of taxpayers. Arguably, many taxpayers who will be flipping the bill for these rooms could not themselves afford to stay here. This is a room at the Belleclaire, which is owned by the aforementioned Shimmie Horn.

It’s unclear how New York City pays for all this. An added COVID sales tax perhaps?

In June, the city estimated that its two-year revenue loss will be at least $9.6 billion — and that’s a low-ball number. Those estimates do not factor in money that may not arrive from Albany. If the state does not benefit from a new COVID-19 relief bill, the city could lose up to $3 billion in aid.

As we have been warning for months, all the joy of life, including urban ambiance, is being drained away by the dark triad psychopathic Fifth Columnists running the show.

Anybody who lives in or travels to urban destinations also knows that local restaurants are part of this joy. That and going to a performance or a sporting event. All closed.

Imagine waking up to jails being emptied into you neighborhood, police standing down and the local boutique hotel being converted to shelter for sex offenders. Then, most of your favorite restaurants are closing down for good. In July, only 17 percent of New York City restaurants were paying rent. Only 28 percent of restaurants were even bothering to take reservations, way down from pre-scamdemic levels. 12% of mortgage borrowers in New York City were at least 30 days behind on payments in May, and many others face eviction adding to the homeless rolls.

‘Escape from New York’

The predictive programming dystopian movie “Escape from New York” is becoming non-fiction soon enough. Here’s the synopsis of the 1981 scifi film:

In 1997, the crime rate in the United States rises by 400%. The once great city of New York becomes the one maximum security prison for the entire country. A 50 foot containment wall was erected along the New Jersey shoreline across the Harlem river, and down along the Brooklyn shoreline. It completely surrounds Manhattan Island. All bridges and waterways are mined. The United States police force like an army, is encamped around the island. There are no guards inside the prison, only prisoners and the worlds they have made. The rules are simple, once you go in, you don’t come out.

How about Escape from Chicago circa 2020? The draw bridges were raised around the city over the weekend to keep out bands of vagabundos, following a sudden onslaught of riots, gunfire and general chimp outs.

“All bridges are being raised along the river throughout The Loop,” reported CBS Chicago on Sunday. “Chicago’s Office of Emergency Management announced street closures throughout areas in the Magnificent Mile, Gold Coast and South Loop.” Numerous bus and train services were also suspended. Large areas of downtown Chicago are still closed.

  1. Lucerne Hotel to House 283 Homeless Men Recovering from Substance Abuse

    The Lucerne Hotel at 201 West 79th Street will be used to house 283 homeless people who have been staying at shelters downtown, as a way to reduce the population at those shelters so there is less of a Covid-19 risk, according to Councilmember Helen Rosenthal. The residents will be moving in on Monday, according to Rosenthal and the shelter operator, Project Renewal.

    • This Hospital Cost $52 Million. It Treated 79 Virus Patients

      The wasted $52m is just the tip of the iceberg; read the entire article above, which chronicles all the money spent/wasted in and around NYC to create thousands of beds/living space for fictive corona patients, together with this piece from Thomas Müller, to really appreciate the malevolent incompetence of government, especially NYC.

      And after all of that, they still need to dump hundreds if not thousands of the homeless and criminals, including sex criminals, into the neighborhoods of decent people, putting them up in nice hotels no less.

  2. Fantastic. Everything is coming together for another ff in manhattan, this time blamed on pla. You’ll know when uncle sam associates blm and antifa, with ccp.

  3. What in the Wide Wide World of Sports is going on around here? Is this a Zionist plot to flush American Jews out of our cities and get them to move to Palestine?

    Are they trying to drive out the few whites that remain in our downtown areas?

    Is this just the Jewish impulse to destroy, injure and wreck made manifest?

    My guess- all of the above.

    • Wide wide world of sports, eh? (Remember that line from “Blazing Saddles”) Good to know the “wide wide world of sports” is disappearing….now people have to do actually important things or engage in their own creativity since sports are being cancelled in one way or another,,,I hope the NFL cancels their season until….who knows?

      The reactions to Covid (not Covid, but the reactions to it) have done some positive things–one, cancel sports; two, cause more parents to home school; three, drive Hollywood into the ground where it belongs; four, forcing folks to spend money more cost effectively and not just buy crap just because….frugality is a good thing. Instead of watching a stupid rigged NFL game, maybe it’s time to exercise by taking walks? And usually you don’t even need to wear a stupid mask!

      • With the Big-10 and the Pac-12 cancelling their fall sports seasons, we are witnessing the beginning of the end of college football as we know. Some of these schools will not be able to recover from a year without college football. College football funds ALL of the other sports within the athletic departments of these various schools and they operate on tight, tight budgets. I run some of the Univ. of Utah home tennis tournaments and work directly with the athletic department, so I can speak from experience.

        Also, some of these small college towns like Ann Arbor and Lincoln will be ravaged financially by the lack of tailgating, games, and after parties. Add this to the already existing economic problems related to the Covid hoax and you can see where this is going.

        I continue to be astounded at the mass-hypnosis that exists around this whole hoax. These college presidents are afraid of litigation resulting from one player potentially dying of CV-19, but they are too stupid to see that, even if you accept the ‘official data’ on CV-19, it is no different than a regular flu season. A 99.96% survival rate, yet were going to cancel fall sports because the government and media have told me that CV-19 is novel and really, really scary. They simply cannot see through the programming they’ve been subjected to! I’m definitely surrounded by Nietzsche’s Last Men on a daily basis!

  4. A jewish friend calls Manhattan ‘Jew York City’ and the NYT the ‘Jew York Times’. I’m baffled why such a strongly bourgeois jewish place would allow such destruction, it’s going to destroy their property prices. Vey unclear what the end goal is from the countrywide seeding of wholesome area hotels with substance abuse basket cases and petty criminals in the name of Covid1984…

    • Most Jews are secular, Talmudic Jews do not know or worship the Creator God of the Old Testament, and Kabbala is Eastern Mysticism. Some people swear these are Luciferians. They are destroyers, fraudster, and money grubbers. Consider…. Henry ….very Illuminating (pun intended).

    Changing World, Changing Mozilla — This is a time of change for the internet and for Mozilla. From combatting a lethal virus and battling systemic racism to protecting individual privacy — one thing is clear: an open and accessible internet is essential to the fight

    Today we announced a significant restructuring of Mozilla Corporation. This will strengthen our ability to build and invest in products and services that will give people alternatives to conventional Big Tech. Sadly, the changes also include a significant reduction in our workforce by approximately 250 people.

    How naive of you to think Mozilla was a tech company behind (most notably) the Firefox browser — no, they are hard at work to ‘combat a lethal virus and battle systemic racism’ (that’s the coronavirus, not a computer virus; those aren’t “lethal”) — figuring out how this makes Mozilla an ‘alternative to Big Tech’ is left as an exercise.

    Recall Brendan Eich was forced out of Mozilla in 2014 after opposing same sex marriage (link).

    The truth is that Firefox is in a death spiral; it is now down to < 5% market share, and this bit of woke nonsense will not save it or Mozilla.

    • Totally agree about Mozilla and Firefox, a browser I can no longer use because they have totally screwed it up with each update….each update it gets worse and worse to where I just can’t use it anymore. Mostly I use Opera. Glad Firefox is in a death spiral…they deserve to be.

    The war on white people. At what point do white people decide the government is no longer willing to defend them?

    Chicago — Driver intentionally ran over woman in River North, police say

    An Albany Park man is facing murder and attempted murder charges for allegedly striking two women with his SUV in River North on Monday night — and then intentionally running over one of them again. … Zoraleigh Ryan, a 55-year-old grandmother from Chandler, Arizona, and her 20-year-old daughter, were struck by a silver SUV as they waited to cross the intersection of State and Hubbard streets around 10:30 p.m., … The driver got out of the SUV, saw the women on the ground, and then circled back around to run over Ryan again, police reported. She was dragged for a half-block and was later pronounced dead at the scene, police said. Ryan’s daughter, who also lists an Arizona address, was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in good condition.

    The article has a foto of the suspect — the dead woman on LinkedInthis article has a foto of the victim — note the idiotic ‘take’ of the family member (“Now my only grandma is gone because people want to be dumb. …”).

    Suggestion: please try to avoid embedding videos that autoplay in the articles here — thanks.

    • Back on topic: When do the wealthy Jews who own apts on the upper West Side in NYC “decide the government is no longer willing to defend them” (as Nedlern suggests below).

      A conservative is a liberal who got mugged the old joke from the 80s had it. Lots of people getting “mugged” at this time … with many more to come from those 800 million vaccine doses.

      All eyes on Europe – Aug 29 – somewhat surprising to see the “revolt of the mugged” perhaps starting to take better shape there. Here it’s all still “systemic racism … systemic racism”

  7. The Jews are in captivity, they are not the head of the beast. For years Chabad wasn’t allowed to do kosher slaughter in Israel becauset weren’t considered Jewish. I don’t know Alsoif this is still the case. And it’s known Trump is about excising the old Jewish American establishment in favour of “Russian” oligarchs. So it’s a case of the Jews finally having to fight off their handlers. NY Jews have served their purpose, Torah Jews and Talmudist both, half breeds you understand. The serpent eats it’s own tail. Then again, new Jews might be in order in Africa and China. The virus program may still have merit on the ground there, but in America the Jews have done their job and what thanks can they expect

    • Uh, I’m sorry > HUH ??!!! I can’t make heads or tails of this comment. Maybe it’s
      because it doesn’t ‘add up’ (ha ha) to a full half dollar. See what I did there ?!
      He did use the word ‘jews’ a couple times tho’ > maybe he’s onto something. 🙂

  8. My schadenfreude is acting up something crazy right now. And for any of you ‘muricans who ask why I’d enjoy seeing new york city this way, because you think it’s part of “our country”… Please consider that it’s been a beachhead for international finance for centuries. I reckon it’s about as alien a place to salt-of-the-earth types as any other foreign land. Much of what we think of as “Americana” is in fact contrary to real American values, in that it’s pomp, fluff, of no intrinsic value.
    A great question to ask oneself is why do people even think these cities are so great? Answer: Because people have been severely propagandized to think this way. That’s the only reason. If we were propagandized to think it’s cool to be a farmer for generations, you bet your ass we’d be more agrarian. We’d be living on our own ranches. Lord know there’s enough land out there, but we’ve been steered in the opposite direction. Cities have one “advantage” over suburban or rural environments, and I’d argue it’s not really an advantage, but more of an amenity, and it’s called convenience. But the city dweller pays through the nose for it in terms of a much higher cost of living, combined with less safety and less privacy. What a miraculously horrendous deal! You don’t get hordes of people herding themselves into these places without the proper “conditioning”, i.e. decades of psychic driving by your favorite msm programming.
    And I also celebrate the nosediving of all national sports. Good riddance. They are public relations, read propaganda, by definition. Sports have possibly brainwashed more people than any other tool in the media apparatus’ arsenal, they were arguably the most effective propaganda tool before television. They’ve been at the forefront of all kinds of cultural marxist narratives championing equity/tolerance/diversity, before the captured leaders of the USA even decided that the Soviets were an enemy. If you like sports so much, I recommend you go play one yourself. You might just realize that you’re playing a game for children, and decide there’s something better to do with your time, and you’d be right. So why, pray tell, would one think it’s cool or fun or whatever to pay for $50 tickets to watch performance enhanced adults play kid’s games while paying $25 for a beer and a hot dog? Pretty damned infantile, and certainly wasteful in many ways. One’s time, attention, and wallet are valuable. It’s sound advice to not waste those things on trivial pursuits.

    • Totally agree with what you said about sports. For folks to wake up, “bread and circuses” need to be ended by force (especially the NFL!). Besides, who has the money to buy those tickets and food when nearly half the country is unemployed or furloughed?

      Also agree about cities. Had I not moved to rural America by getting married to a (former) beekeeper, I’d now likely be in an insane asylum! Far west Texas–now that’s reality! And the wildlife… Only negative is slow wi-fi internet….

    • Marcus Aurelius counted it as a gift from his teachers to have leaned when still young: “not to become partisan of the Green jacket or the Blue in the races, nor of Thacian or Samnite gladiators … to avoid idle enthusiasms …. not to cock-fight or to be excited about such sports”

      Meditations I: 3,4

  9. Why is it that after I read the article and viewed the images, I feel like saying:
    Hitler was right. Hitler was right. Hitler was right. No reason I suppose. Just
    that when one considers all that He and National Socialist literature had to
    say about ‘natural order’ in general and the jewish design to destroy and
    go against that, how can anything be more obviously apparent. All that
    is low order, undesirable, and dysfunctional has now become virtue.
    And a means by which jews can impoverish us – in more ways than
    one – and ‘enrich’ and satisfy themselves. Truly a mentally ill tribe.

    • You need to separate Little Jews from Big Jews, the former are also being wrecked by this New York discordianism. They- like most Gentiles- do however need to wake up and get out of their hive mentality and join us in opposition or they will lose their communities. And we are now in the collapse phase, not destabilization. That’s one reason you see me collaborating with a non-hive mind Jew like Charles Moscowitz.

      • I think Sammy had some very insightful comments below – the various flavors of “Jew”. In general “The Jew” as the National Socialists always said, had to be about the most useless analytical concept ever invented. And indeed, in the highly assimilated, inter-married society that Germany was in 1930, it took them years to develop even a rough scheme of “degrees” which the courts then haggled over in some very interesting rulings … until the issue became moot.
