yimbys want me dead🤷‍♀️

Citizen Kate

My ghoulish dead spirit has been upzoned: based!

Like the “venom symbiote” I have apparently become, I now find myself presently inhabiting the physical shell (ah, my “new host”) of Netflix comedian Kate Willett and, as a parasite, let me tell you it feels amazing to finally have some tits.


(Trading in my “nimby brain😤🍼😩” for some better body parts.)

oh poor deluded Yehuded: I’m only “banished” presently on Twitter where, for the meantime, my satanic spirit shall seethe inside Kate’s soul
our new fuelgrannie!!!!!😤🍼😫”

And, as ever, the yimbys are not pleased.

(because that’s not sugar in your KoolAid, Autumn🤷‍♀️)

After all, a renewed frenzy about fuelgrannie is the last thing yimbys want to stoke.

Pwwwweeeeeeaaaaase don’t look at her blog, bro!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”

“my life is flashing before my eyes!!!!!😤🍼😫”
Everybody out of NYC, NOW!!!!!!! ~*I*~ said so!!!!
Say muh name, say muh name👋
Today we are all fuelgrannie
“Cameo?” Or living inside the many mansions of that expansive Harvard head for free?🙊
I remember when you told me to “get the bullet”
“completely unhinged!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😩”
Gosh maybe I can help, Ben🥺😭

Now that I am newly Kate, I can learn all over again about shady funder group New Leaders Council aligned to its shifty, dishonest “capstone” Aaron Carr and his profitable nonprofit Housing Rights Initiative; Carr’s and NLC’s benefactor Mitchell Draizin; and even brush up on a little bit on background of the creation of that self-funded vanity project, lobbying group Open New York, back in 2015, by that very mighty landlord himself, Ben Carlos Thypin.

Kate, also a housing advocate on both US coasts, had already known to follow that money, so now that she is me, she’ll be running down those trails, quite a few of which lead to the aforementioned Mitchell Draizin, Master Thypin and the latter’s wealthy family.

There are not a ton of dots so it’s pretty easy to connect them.

(oh snap, Open New York founder and steel heir Ben Carlos Thypin: hope Kate doesn’t, like, you know, read my blog or anything🙊)
Hi Paul: you’re full of shit and we all know it👋

And Kate, ah I mean ~*me*~, understands how loose and thin yimby propaganda remains, around a literal straw man.

We see you, CA Yimby👋

Having Edgared Kate Willett’s very skin (“sugar ~*and*~ water“), there’s no telling how much havoc I might cause.

Like figuring out that yimbyism doesn’t deliver on any of its “promises.”

And, like, where all that money comes from.

Also the direct and deliberate threat on public housing.

Or witnessing obvious hypocrisy.

And seeing it all line up.

Like all of us have.

I am Kate and we are all fuelgrannie now.

(Until I infect another host….)

Yimby Stomach

If you are incapable of directly telling me that I have a “nimby brain,” Open New York member Adam Fisher Cox, perchance your fear of discourse reveals less proof of my “nimby brain” than it demonstrates solid evidence of your yimby stomach.

After all, you and I were both on that same June 1, 2022, Queens Community Board 1 Land Use Committee Zoom call last week so then why did you take a screenshot of my words, while also carefully editing out my name (a telling choice), instead of just engaging with me?

Why didn’t you just respond, in real time, at the moment it was happening, to my comment?

Whatever your reason may be, it is your reason, your logic and your choice: it has nothing to do with me or any of my body parts.

You are a board member of the community board so why not talk to a, oh I dunno, member of the community. You know, the community you represent.

Why not directly engage? Isn’t that the whole point of serving on a community board in the first place?

Or does the thought of direct discourse with my “nimby brain” make your yimby tummy ache?

And yes, for sure, Mr. Cox, I am against “big bad development,” because, you know, it’s bad and harmful and gratuitous and only serves the greedy developers with tax abatements which never, ah, trickle down so to thereby offer any “filtered” benefit to any tenants. Ever.

And dog parks are a repeated and thus obvious luxury development amenity dog whistle to this already informed community (HQ2, annnone?) which knows all too well what trinkets these developments promote so to purposefully distract from the lack of affordable housing provided.

As a district resident for almost a quarter of a century, I would encourage you to be open to what you may not know so that you could actually learn about the low earners in your own district, especially about the 25% who live at or below the poverty level within the five census tracts of the proposed InnovationQNS site.

Your public résumé, including a stint at the Wall Street Journal, makes me highly suspect you are not a low earner.

Plus, since you are new to this community board, as well as maybe even being new to the Astoria and Long Island City yourself, you may not fully understand the needs of this community’s majority, who are not high earners. You may also see dog parks as a priority over deeply affordable housing; the latter being an amenity wealthy people covet more than their lower earning neighbors.

And I wonder, too, Mr. Cox, if this community board, my community board, is aware of Open New York’s agenda to abolish, well, community boards.

And that yimby agenda just might be why you had sought out to serve on the community board in the first place.

Why not be transparent with your own intentions?

Is your silence due to that nervous belly of yours?

Or is it something else?

It’s important for QCB1 to fathom your and your group’s disdain of community boards.

While it is certainly fair for you to seek out and be appointed to a community board seat, it is conversely also fair for this community board to be aware of the yimby collective opinion of community boards and your determined wish to eliminate them from the housing discourse landscape.


You need to publicly acknowledge your conflict of interest, Mr. Cox, in serving on an entity you seek to destroy.

Because the community has to stomach you just like you have to stomach us.

The Case of Ben Carlos Thypin as @LES3025

“come on think about it😤🍼😩”

Ok coz I ackshually have been thinking “about it,” “@LES3025.”

And thinking about your “shitty 17 follower burner account.”

Not just because such an admission reveals how all of you yimby incels use ten accounts apiece as you connive an attempt to dominate the housing narrative on Twitter.

But also because your followers are quite a select crew to support such an allegedly “shitty” account.

I mean, how “shitty” could your account really be, you know, in yimby terms, when both OpenNY founder Ben Carlos Thypin @SoBendito and yimby chaos maker Taylor Austin Kessinger @yhdistyminen each follow you?

Taylor has over twice as many followers than accounts he follows but he still follows your little tiny “shitty [now 18] follower burner account.”

Weird flex, amirite?

And you admit this @LES3025 account is one of your alt “burner accounts” as you defensively embrace what you feel is your right to anonymity.

And, of course, “@LES3025,” you certainly do have every right to present as an anonymous entity.

But that doesn’t mean you won’t receive scrutiny for not only your flawed logic but also for your stubborn insistence on staying anonymous.

I mean, to use your own words, “think about it.”

Because why be anonymous when you’re right?

Why hide when you’re correct?

That doesn’t make any sense.

C’mon think about it.

Conversely none of your adversaries are anonymous nor do they use numerous anonymous accounts.

So, is it because of the fact that you have all these other anonymous accounts that you’re literally ashamed to fully come out about them and yourself? (Are you an embarrassed catfish and is this a case for Nev and Max?🥺😭)

Why is it all your opponents, all these “nimbys😤🍼😫,” have no problem being public with who they are? They are all clear and transparent about their identities, including me.

In contrast, all you yimbys not only have numerous accounts on top of your “mains😤🍼😫,” you also publicly admit to that practice and excuse the strangeness of it, as if this is how every Twitter user operates when it’s only all of you: a bunch of angry yimbys hiding behind fake names and anonymous accounts.

Like, for example, Taylor Austin Kessinger (@yhdistyminen) who likely enjoys passing as a yimby female perhaps because there are so few yimbellinas. Kessinger’s academic main account @nashintasapaino remains vanilla and unpopular as he spends most of his social media time, in months-long conversations at points, via the ambiguous @yhdistyminen account with its thousands of followers, occasionally posting filtered pics of himself as a “very pretty😤🍼😩” female.

(Like cashboob, yhdistyminen’s account is presently private.)

(Why did you delete your tweet, Taylor?)

Then there’s long-winded Amazon-HQ2LIC-stan as abusive-anonymous-asshat @BringJobs who refers to himself as “we” so to attempt to appear as some sort of official “group of concerned citizens😤🍼😫.” (He also claims Twitter has a “20-page report” on me but he is likely referring to my own appeal which is sadly longer than 20 pages as it substantiates in great detail how suspiciously weak Twitter’s case is against me.) All the people @Bringjobs pretends to be in his “group” still all remain anonymous. He might be Amazon lobbyist Guy Palumbo or he might be wealthy landlord and restauranteur Sam Musovic but he is definitely not a “we” and he’s terrified of being known for who he really is.

Equally verbose and similarly infuriated, classist, racist sealion @constans, a highly paid SoHo homeowner, used to display his real first name, Dean, in his bio. No more: he currently insists on anonymity in his never ending engagement. Makes it easier for him to play SuperSecretAgentGuyPersonWhoKnowsEverything.

Yep yep, we all understand why Dean loves being anonymous👋

Just because the tender dick white cult members of yimby try to present as mysterious and très très importante doesn’t mean the rest of us don’t see right through the charade.

Because we recognize you, all of you, through your anonymity.

Despite your anonymity, in fact.

We all see you while you pretend to not be what you clearly are: because you are all the same.

Aside from physically resembling each other, you all talk alike: you employ the exact same propaganda, the exact same words, over and over again.

When I had first started becoming aware of yimby back in the summer of 2019, when OpenNY member Justin Potter had briefly and halfheartedly attempted to run for senate (on a pro-Amazon platform, aka, high level clown shit), I observed the conversations you all had with each other: the exact same people, the same surly avatars, the same names, the same condescension, the same insults, the same lies and cruelty and mocking, over and over and over again.

And nothing has changed in three years.

It’s easy to see you. It’s easy to identify you, even if you’re anonymous: you’re all the same.

You reveal who you all are, whether you are using your “alt😤,” your “main🍼” or your “burner😫.”

Don’t you fathom that, “@LES3025“?

Don’t you understand that others witness you?

Because why wouldn’t others notice how you and your account behave?

Why would we not take notice of you and your “shitty” account?

Think about it.

You’re being witnessed and observed just like you have witnessed and observed others.

See how that works?

And because you are so prolific in your written content, “@LES3025,” you’ve been observed a lot: your own actions have brought you attention.

Think about it: you’ve piqued people’s curiosity.

You had piqued mine even before you had tweeted that you were “honored” I had mentioned you in a post which had reminded me of that time when Ben Thypin had declared he was “flattered” by my criticism of his vanity project, real estate development lobbying group Open New York, from which Ben is presently trying to distance himself for, ah, whatever nefarious reasons. You express yourself like Ben, “@LES3025:” you sound like him.

And you are so prolific that you demonstrate this similarity frequently.

That’s what happens when one is so verbal with one’s false narrative propaganda: attention is drawn.

Drawn attention increases with your insistence to remain anonymous, even on the comments of almost every Village Sun article. No one else hides there: why do you?

Come on.

Think about it, Ben.

We all have.


Ok, so then who exactly are you, “@LES3025,” and why am I such an idiot for guessing?
K but I’m not anonymous, Ben: and you are

Why be anonymous when you’re right?🤷‍♀️

Think about it (👋)
Must be nice to be a landlord of scores of NYC units, Ben: “most of us don’t have that luxury😤🍼😫”
“People think…about it”

Jane’s Walk 2022: A Sunset Walk Through Industrial Western Queens

After a two year covid hiatus, we’re back in sweet Queens!

Come explore the history of Vernon Boulevard, discuss the state of housing and development in New York City (especially in burgeoning outer borough areas), grab a beer at a local Long Island City brewery and walk through beautiful western Queens as the sun descends for Jane’s Walk 2022

Register here: kids and bikes are welcome and water is available at the brewery (plus a bathroom!)

(Bring your camera)

See you there!

Been doing this MAS tour since 2016, developer, landlord and real estate development lobbying group OpenNY founder Ben Carlos Thypin: you’re six years late with your tired and lazy rage (“😤🍼😫”)
(Dear reader, you’ve been warned🥺😭)
Hey Kermie: the LIC waterfront is more than Gantry Plaza State Park

Which my tour demonstrates


“The baby bottle emoji is a step ~*too*~ ~*far*~!!!!!!😤🍼😫”

I hope they do: they’re more than welcome to join
“C*nnie M*rray😤🍼😫”

“Ugh I haaaaaate her!!!!!😤🍼😫”

I still do, Aaron Carr 👋

“My Followers Said No!!!!😤🍼😩”

I’ve gotten to know you by your own curious actions.

It’s been four months since you and I first interacted on that January night where minutes after engaging with you, my account got quickly suspended and you then, oddly, raced to delete your part of our conversation.

And it was during that very conversation, Hayden Clarkin, where you had asked me for coffee, not the other way around. What a curious game now to claim it was my idea: it was yours.

And I emailed you back in April, a month ago, and subsequently wrote this post about you because you had tweeted about me and then deleted it.

I was curious, Hayden: that’s why I wrote my email to you and then my post about you. Curiosity.

And you keep mentioning me. You won’t email me back but you keep bringing me up on social media.

So I remain curious: I wonder if my curiosity is too much for you to understand as you’d rather talk, safely and comfortably, to your followers, rather than to me directly.

And sure, absolutely: no one in yimby circles has ever heard of me; I remain completely inconsequential to all of them, all of you, and I bet to everyone else in the world at large.

So, again, highly weird flex for you to then keep bringing me up. (“Hey, who ~*is*~ that nobody?!?!?!?😤🍼😫”)

But, then again, those are your actions.

I mean, unless you end up deleting your tweets (or your whole timeline, ooops! I mean, why *do* people keep picking on you?).

But deleting tweets is yet another action, isn’t it? Another curious action.

I know now you would never meet me for coffee: you never meant your offer back in January.

You never responded to my email. You’ll talk about me publicly, for attention, but you won’t speak to me directly.

That’s who you are.

Your actions show who you are.

Not on Hayseed’s watch (“😤🍼😫”)

Your dishonesty shows who you are.

Lol they’re two completely different places, Flailden lol

Again, I have gotten to know you by your own very curious actions: we all have.

We’ve witnessed you deleting hundreds of tweets.

Especially after you get called out.

We saw you then delete your entire timeline.

“This Tweet was deleted by the Tweet author”

You even made your own website private for a few weeks, highly odd.

But I guess it’s a bad look to be caught whining about expiring covid rent specials in Long Island City luxury glass towers when one is founding chief executive officer of one’s own profitable nonprofit.

That’ll rattle someone into professional website privacy and a tweet delete fest, amirite?

But, curiously enough, my public website still provides link access to your 25-page portfolio and your nonprofit-CEO resume.

I mean, just in case anyone else remains curious about you.

Tell us you’re an ignorant, spoiled transplant without telling us you’re an ignorant spoiled transplant, FadeIn 👋
Transden Plantkin


(uhoh someone else is about to lose their Twitter account)
We see you, FakeDen👋
“I don’t follow anyone back but I’m ~*obsessed*~ with my follower account (more than, like, with a loved one’s alleged ‘health issues’!!!!!!😤🍼😫”
“Touch grass!!!!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”

Premature Cougjaculation

I mean, I see where tashcoug was going with all this.

“a ~*~*short*~*~ list!!!!😤🍼😫”

She had wanted to demonstrate that yimbys are not all white men.

And I wonder if she had expected some landslide response with dozens of pics of nonwhite and/or nonmale yimbys. (oooops: deleted!🙊)

As she continues to make her account private, while also erasing her own tweets (“for work😤🍼😫”), it’s still easy to see how cashboob nonetheless stumbled miserably here.

Because what resulted instead was pics showing less than ten such yimby individuals.

Even sloppy Laura Foote tried to help out tashboob but then ended up only yelping for assistance in thinking of moar names because she, wait for it, couldn’t think of anyone else.

“help me ~*think*~!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”
“I almost went to the hospital!!!!😤🍼😫”
(white women for white women [“😤🍼😩”])

I mean, the_watcher tried, too, last year.

They had promised “hundreds of tweets😤🍼😫” (gosh that sounds familiar) documenting perchance hundreds of diverse yimbys but then only produced photos of less than 20 people.

The truth about privileged white male yimby screams louder than any 10 selfies or 20 stock photos as that very truth hollers through these images: the overall representation of this group remains literally self-evident and any attempts to display otherwise fall woefully flat and end up backfiring on all of you.

While the rest of us watch.

(Plus: you *rent* all of your clothes(?!) yet you describe independent American homeowners as a “cartel???😤🍼😫”)

Maybe you yimbette gals just can’t help but confirm your critics as right because we still only see so many white men and so very few of you.

Not “erasing:” just pointing out how few women, nonbinary, trans and poc there are in yimby

because that’s, like, the truth👋
why thoa?
Ah yes, a fully realized vin blanc, with bold shades of Nolan, Carr and Thomas (plus is that a peppery hint of Smith coyly sprinkled in?)

A fine yimby specimen: sparkling uniform white and clean (“😤🍼😫”)
“women are nimbys men are yimbys I never know what I’m yapping about, proof my intelligence is fake😤🍼😫”
why thoa?🤷‍♀️
“my assumption!!!!!!😤🍼😫”

no, Yet Another White Guy, it’s because you yimbys (“X”) are basically all white dudes who look, well, like you: and that’s not a “fuck up,” that’s a logical conclusion 👋

Mighty Rich Thypin

Oh ho ho, now that is mighty rich, mighty rich Thypin.

“My family owns literal buildings but you baby brain clowns with just ~*one*~ home? Ha! You red-nose losers have, like, a degenerative ~*brain*~ disease. Not those of us who, like, you know, own hundreds of homes, nope, not us: we’re immune!!! But you guys?!? Omg you are so mentally ill!!!!😤🍼😫”

I mean, how many homes do you own, Open New York founder?

In, like, all those buildings that you and your family own?

In all those portfolios you and your family have?

“by ~*my*~ ~*house*~!!!!😤🍼😫”

(k but, like, <which> house of yours, Lordpin?🥺😭)

Your family owns scores of buildings and properties.

Doesn’t that, like, you know, make you all homeowners, or landlords, a hundred times over? What a veritable Thypin sea of “degenerative brain disease,” huh?

You, mighty rich Thypin, a steel heir, disparage other people for daring to own *one* home when you and your family own enough real estate to house a small village of humans.

Maybe that’s the real “disease” here.

Because, really, Ben Carlos Thypin, is an average homeowner’s behavior truly a “degenerative brain disease” or is it just your own sociopathy

(Except your sickness is times one hundred.)

I know an investor, too: Ben Carlos Thypin’s very own Quantierra

(Thypin himself is also a landlord, many times over)
That time when Ben Carlos Thypin’s Quantierra employee, @marketurbanism Stephen J. Smith, tried to con black property owners out of a fair price
“I am a landlord: my buildingSSSS earn me income”

(saying that loud part out loud loudly, Benzolito👋)

“It’s pretty hypocritical to be a yimby and be a landlord

Dare you to do it, OpenNY 🤷‍♀️
If it’s “NIMBY city😤🍼😫,” then maybe you should move someplace else
But before you move, show your 990 form: we triple dog dare you👋
(you’re not alone, “BCT😤🍼😫”)
K but just how many homes do *you* own, Forehead? You’re a homeowner a hundred times over, you ridiculous obvious hypocrite 👋
Do you mean how many does Ben Thypin own, Cea Weaver, you ridiculous lying hypocrite?
(it was, you sick strange asshole)
In NYC, yimbys *are* conservative property owners

Yeah and then there’s you, Ben: a guy who owns scores of buildings and is thus a landlord of hundreds of homes

Do you ever, like, look at yourself?

Because, um, we do👋


“Ugh I ~*HAAAAAATE*~ today!!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”
“She’s not real!!!!!!!! @fuelgrannie is a ~*paranoid*~ ~*anonymous*~ ~*crank*~!!!!! I need to mute her from my lyfe!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”
(“This tweet of mine did not age well!!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”)
“They’re gonna, like, call it Homophwitter!!!!😤🍼😫”
“Like, I mean, wtf?!?!?!?!?!”
“She’s, like, a, why, a homophobic yimby sock puppet!!!!!😤🍼😫”
Imma kick her in her neck, hard!!!!!!!!😤🍼😫”
(aka, not fuelgrannie 🤷‍♀️)

InnovationQNS: Another Worn Out Scheme

Oof, I knew exactly what we were in for the minute I saw Mitchie Taylor seated on the stage.

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.

There’s also his repeated history of sexually harassing women.

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.
