Fuelgrannie: “A Universal Phenomenon”

“How is it that ~*every*~ ~*single*~ ~*city*~ eventually develops a fuelgrannie? It’s like a universal phenomenon!!!!!😤🍼😫”

(Who’s gonna tell yim?🙊)

Gosh, could it be that “every single city😤🍼😫” is onto your yimby bullshit, Ceiling Gaze Boi? Gosh, maybe that’s the reason, I mean, like, who knows, right, but, like, maybe🥺😭.

Dan’s dms are sad gold
“common courtesy!!!!😤🍼😫”
Photos I’ve taken? Huh, Danny: I think you have me confused with Casey Berkovitz

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.

I ended up, instead, calling Josephson a “shill,” because, you know, she’s the listed on the 990 form for a real estate development lobbying group so.

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.

With anything.

Even when they’re banned from Twitter.
