The presence of Urban Upbound’s notorious CEO at yesterday’s barely-advertised InnovationsQNS town hall could only mean one thing: this project is a scam and Big Sleazy is likely being compensated to promote said scam, as he had been with both Amazon HQ2LIC and YourLIC.
Mitchell Taylor, who owns a $2million home on Long Island, brings that sell out energy as he claims to represent the entire Queensbridge population while his history reflects an exploitation of that community for his own profit.
And during the summer of 2020, as covid raged and people sought outdoor refuge, Taylor’s nonprofit security company infamously and conveniently profited when Gantry Plaza State Park, a public park, was used by the, ah, public while the wealthy inhabitants of the waterfront luxury towers whined and railed about too many unwelcomed humans visible from their lofty, shiny, windowed perches.
At yesterday’s town hall, as Taylor detailed a planned “community center” to “house neighborhood nonprofits” within the 27-story towers of InnovationQNS, I could not help but wonder that the only nonprofits which might end up using that space will be those umbrellaed under Taylor’s highly profitable Urban Upbound.
I also deeply resented how much Taylor was on his phone during the event: as ever and always, he has zero clue how he comes across.
While we all watch him.

I feelar meelar on this one🥺😭.
No, Dan, I just do screenshots of yimby avatars and create content about how all of you, like you yourself, are young white tech guys.
But here, curiously, is your pal Casey Berkovitz holding his cameraphone on me instead of public commenter (and his fellow OpenNY board member) Amelia Josephson during Manhattan Community Board 2’s infamous (“chaotic”) June 2021 meeting: I wonder if he had suspected that I was going to murder Josephson so maybe he had wanted to make sure he caught my vicious soon-to-happen crime on film.
And my daring to call Josephson, a transplant from Alaska who haunts Landmark Preservation meetings for the sole purpose of disparaging architectural preservation and appreciation, a “paid shill” apparently *was* akin to physical violence, at least to OpenNY Executive Director, and highly paid shill himself, Will Thomas.
“She’s the nicest person in the world!!!😤🍼😫” Thomas whined to me, one month later, after CB2’s full board vote in July 2021 which almost unanimously voted against the rezoning of SoHo NoHo.
(And it very well may be that Amelia Josephson is the “nicest person in the world😤🍼😫” but she nonetheless still remains a real estate development shill.)
ONY’s Thomas was livid with me: “And stop retweeting us too!!!! Gawd!!!!😤🍼😫”
But phenomenons don’t stop.
Even when they’re banned from Twitter.
Residents of Lower Manhattan, as well as New Yorkers and observers from all over, do not criticize New York’s Department of City Planning’s senior planner Sylvia Li because she is Asian: they do so because Sylvia Li lied to them.
Li was recently nominated for the Ibo Balton award for “community planning” from the creepy Citizens Housing Planning Council (with its Jessica Katz infamy), for having brought “equitable” scams to SoHo NoHo. Since my tweets about Li’s dishonesty are currently hidden, here are screenshots of them from over a year ago which demonstrate Li’s cruel dismissiveness towards downtown elderly residents, her blatant favoritism of Open New York members, none of whom live in the rezoned area, and her unabashed dishonesty.
People hate your lies, Sylvia Li, not your skin color.
But keep collecting your gratuitous, crony, clubby awards and pocketing our taxpayer funding as your six-figure salary: we will all remain watching you.
(Also: all these tweets of mine about Sylvia Li, as well as this very blog post itself, are still missing all that alleged racism which I supposedly express at all given moments: weird flex, huh?)
They do all look alike and dang, is that baby bottle emoji their kryptonite.
Quick aside: the guy in the large photo has described his inclusion in this ensemble as an “attack” by me. He thinks it’s an “attack” for me to have made note of how similar all these redheaded bearded bespectacled young white guys look. Wonder what he thinks of Ukraine, you know, like in comparison to his own horrifying experience of having surviving being “attacked.”
There is a reason why I use the baby bottle emoji, Chris Aho: thanks for demonstrating that😃😀😄
The center guy here called me “abusive“ in the comments for my post about Mark Mollineaux.
I’m not dead, bois: neither is my thread.
Hayden tweeted about me yesterday but then quickly deleted what he had posted, too fast for me to grab a screenshot, just like he had immediately deleted all his tweets in the conversation he had been having with me on the morning of January 9, 2022, which has always seemed suspicious to me. It was 2:30am when the suspension occurred and this guy was instantly trying to scrub away any record which could be connected to him.
Deleting a tweet doesn’t delete the conversation, even one with a now suspended account.
And you’d think it would be yimby bragging rights to have interacted with such a reviled racist and homophobe as me right before my infamous and oft-reported account got suspended.
But instead, right after my accounts were locked, Hayden had deleted all his tweets with me.
Within five minutes.
He was right on top of it.
At 2:30 in the morning.
So when I saw him mentioning me in that now deleted tweet of his from yesterday, something about how he had wished I was “still here” to witness something he had wanted me to be aware of, my curiosity propelled me to email him.
Hayden had suggested that early morning back in January that he and I, as residents of Long Island City, get together over a cup of coffee to discuss our differences (always a good idea) so my email to him was to follow up on that suggestion.
He has yet to reply.
While I wait, here are screenshots from that final conversation, thanks to increased functionality which keeps sprouting up on my suspended account:
He had tweeted about me yesterday and now he’s ignoring my email.
Seems like Hayden’s hiding from me.
I wonder why….
https://twitter.com/the_transit_guy/status/1512139454852612097?s=20&t=WiQ06vRNLBDfMYJJQBE5Uw Huh, why’d you delete this tweet, Hayduhn?
https://twitter.com/the_transit_guy/status/1512859484883931138?s=20&t=08omjiN8L11nM6HSXzcHQg Or, like, this one, too?
