” “For the politicians to come down here and try to take our celebration and make it their thing … it’s disgusting.”

At the end of the route, Bloomberg thanked the Sanitation Department, said, “This was a great day for the Rockaways,” and abruptly jumped in his car.

Bloomberg wasn’t the only politician crossed by parade-goers. .

Revelers heckled Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer after he cheered through a bull horn, “Let’s hear it for the Rockaways.”

Public advocate and mayoral contender Bill de Blasio’s crew was also lashed after a staffer chanted through a megaphone, “Mission accomplished. Thanks, Bill de Blasio.” “

City Hikes Taxes On Sandy-Hit Houses

 

 

 

” Homeowners in an exclusive waterfront enclave in Brooklyn thought Hurricane Sandy was as cruel a blow as they could suffer — until the taxman proved them wrong.

The city is claiming that property values have actually shot up for many homes in Manhattan Beach and it’s going ahead with hefty tax hikes for the houses devastated by the October superstorm, shocked property owners told The Post.

Homeowners in other neighborhoods hit by Sandy, including Coney Island, the Rockaways and parts of Staten Island, also said they’ve received increases.

“This is totally insensitive and heartless,” said Ira Zalcman, president of the Manhattan Beach Community Group, which has received more than 30 complaints from residents about the hikes.

“We just sustained one of the worst national disasters in our nation’s history, and now the city is delusional, claiming our property values went up.”

 

 

   We’d have more pity for these homeowners if we didn’t know that that they are reaping the benefits of the over-arching government they regularly vote into office .

   They are getting a taste of how the rest of the non-liberal NY residents feel everyday living in a state who’s politics are completely dominated by the left-wing voters of NYC.
