Occupy Nemo‏@OccupyNemo

We're hearing rumors that Roxbury, a largely minority area, has many less plowed streets than other neighborhoods. Can anyone confirm/deny?



Tweet Copied From Twitter Verbatim^^^^^






Yellow_Hat‏@OccupyRene

Plowing this much snow in the city is hard & commendable work. I'm just curious why corridor park is plowed & my working class street isn't

Just found out that the city isn't planning on plowing our street in #Roxbury. Same thing happen during blizzard in 70's. WTF? #bosnow #nemo


Sarah‏@SarahBTweets


Yo! #Brookline! My street still looks like this. When are the plows coming? East Milton Rd. @universalhub pic.twitter.com/LZNDn4of

I am not there and cant speak....

But....


Dont they do the highways and main roads first, before they get to neighborhood streets?


And, if wealthy neighborhoods are plowed, maybe they belong to an HOA who does their plowing as part of the fees?

Kind sounds like nonsense bitching to me.

Maybe its because of all the cars parked all over that have been abondoned. Or the gangs that shot at public services workers.

If the plow broke the tires and radios would get stripped out.

We here in Canada break out the shovels and the kids and shovel ourselves out.

Everybody does the space in front of there homes and pretty soon the street is cleared. Better than waiting around to get saved. Save yourselfs.

People are fucking stupid. Snow storm of the century. They can hardly keep up. They only have so much equipment and everybody wants there's done right now.

Go Blow!!!

Oh brother. I'm in Boston, the city, in a nice middle class neighborhood, and only the main streets are plowed. They'll get around to doing side streets, We got a massive amount of snow.

Corridor Park? I assume this references a 5 mile strip of park with a subway line that runs underneath it. It's very popular and heavily used. I don't know who is responsible for plowing it, maintaining it. Could be a city department other than the DPW. Anyways, most of it goes through working class/poor neighborhoods,only the last mile is located around gentrified expensive neighborhoods.

Roxbury is the traditional center of Boston's black hood.

Brookline is a town Boston surrounds, but it's separate from Boston. It's a nice town, part is very urban, part is one of the best 'suburbs' of Boston.

So a 'poor' neighborhood, a middle class neighborhood, and a 'rich' neighborhood haven't been properly plowed, yet.

--------------------

Hey Canadian, we do the same thing here. Everybody shovels out their shit here, sidewalks, streets if necessary. People outside all day long walking around with shovels, adults and kids.

lmao I'm on an unplowed side street right off a main street. I'm by a big window looking out over the street. Cars are constantly making a turn and attempting to go down the street and go 20 feet before they get stuck. Dude has been spinning his wheels for the past 5 minutes. You need 4 wheel drive to drive on my street right now.

Maybe the wealthier areas served them hot chocolate and cookies and said "thank you" for the work you're doing. That's much more likely to encourage their returning than someone shooting at them, or threatening to rob them is.

Besides the wealthier areas pay far more in property taxes than the poor areas. Sometimes you do get what you pay for!

"But we LIVES in DA STREETS"



Sorry, whites pay the taxes. Too much of our white taxes are wasted on minorities anyway.


You don't want the whites to get to work so they can pay some more taxes, now??

Hey OP those rich guys have a job and actually contribute to society.

The welfare bums don't have shit to do all day but thug it up. You don't need a freshly plowed road if you're on welfare without shit to do all day.
