    Orchard beach is great for all it has to offer. Pelham bay park has some decent trail running as well. Van cortlandt is my favorite by far because of all the different trail running variations and hills. It's just such a pain for me to drive all the way over there just to get a run in. I'm down though. Just hit me up when you want to get out there.

    I second that hell yes. I have a friend who said the Wilpons ruined the "white trash element that used to keep us going by building Citi." hahaha. I kind of agree. And check out 7line t-shirts if you're a Mets fan man. They're sick haha

    It seems like the city and its lawyers are lying down on this priority hire issue. They've saved themselves some money and that's all they seem to care about (or they feel its not worth the controversy). But seeing as how every single person in the top 9000 of this open competitive list is directly effected if the PHs get hired shouldn't we organize something? At least a protest?

    Seems like we should be able to get a very large and very diverse group of people from the OC to mobilize on this. Whether you got a 107 on this test and you are getting thrown into a class with these guys, a 103 and are having your dream job pushed back for 6-7 months, or a 97 and might get pushed off the list, we are all effected.

    No one has as much to lose by this as we do and the public doesn't know because this is all just quietly happening. At least we can make some noise about it.

    They will be doing a few screenings of the film "BURN" in the NY area in March. BURN is a feature documentary about Detroit, told through the eyes of Detroit firefighters, who are charged with the thankless task of saving a city that many have written off as dead. It would most definitely mean a lot to the guys who made the film if people showed up. If they don't sell enough tickets, they will likely have to cancel some screenings. Just FYI...

    Wow that's a pretty good trailer. Some one should have asked them on film how they felt about someone who who couldn't make the cut 10 years ago coming on their job now.

    Lets do something before they come out with a decision? Not sure where I read or heard it today but some one was saying that appeals judges do actually pay attention to the media.

    I saw its back in the fall, on 13th street. I thought it was a great film. The circumstances Detroit faces on a daily basis is unreal.

    For the anyone in the Bronx, I run at Macombs Damn Park, where the old Yankee Stadium was located, several times a week.

    Looks like it's playing in Brooklyn this time in a couple different spots on the 5th and 6th. I hope to make one of them. We can share a popcorn if you want (slight homo)...

    There are two things to we can do which come to mind:

    1) File an "amicus curiae" brief with the Second Circuit which is basically a brief explaining how the case will effect us as a group and how we'd like to see it turn out

    2) Write an editorial in a major newspaper and hope to gain attention
