Email to the New York City public assistance office about my storage room. May 14, 2022.

Greetings HRA,

First and foremost, thank you and your staff for the amazing help you provide to New Yorkers including myself. I always treat your staff with the utmost respect at all times. 

I just uploaded my new storage bill on May 11, 2022. The bill is due by June 1, 2022. 

I downloaded the bill PDF from the storage company on my phone. Then I took a screenshot of the storage bill PDF. Then I uploaded the picture storage bill PDF into the HRA app. 

From my experience, the result is a perfectly clear copy of my storage bill reaches your staff. 

For the past two or three months, I submit my storage bill and the check doesn’t go out until past the due date. Also, I have to email your office through the public web form every month or the check isn’t mailed to the storage company. 

I’m not sure why that’s the case. 

It seems like common sense that everyone on public assistance doesn’t have to visit their HRA center every single month. That would be a huge amount of extra work for your team. 

I also can’t imagine that every month, all New Yorker’s on public assistance or SNAP (food stamps) have to contact your staff via this web form. 

Please help me if you can figure out why I have to contact your office every month to have the check mailed to my storage company. I asked the good people at HRA 14 Street and they don’t know. 

If there is anything else I have to do please let me know and I’ll do it immediatly. 

Please advise. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to the New York State Office of Higher Education about New York City law enforcement viciously harassing me inside Baruch College.

Greetings New York State Office of Higher Education,

New York City law enforcement had three women try to crash into me and harass me at Baruch College today May 7, 2022. 

I emailed you the exact locations inside Baruch College, times, and dates earlier. 

I left school and New York City law enforcement had their plain clothes team follow me right over to where I’m at without a care in the world about being caught. 

I have an open lawsuit against The City University of New York right now: Mark Pine Vs The City University of New York. New York City law enforcement can care less.

New York City law enforcement has zero oversight and when it comes to harassing me they don’t care what evidence they leave in their wake. 

For example, I just posted videos to social media showing that New York City law enforcement has blocked my phone from calling NYPD 911. 

The US Attorney Southern District blocked my phone number. 

The NYPD blocked my phone number from calling all the precincts and NYPD Headquarters. 

The New York FBI blocked my phone number. 

The Albany FBI blocked my phone number. 

Now NYPD 911 blocked my phone number. I’m not sure if the NYPD 911 is a permanent block or a temporary block while they are viciously harassing me in clear view of security cameras. Today isn’t the first time that New York City law enforcement has blocked me from calling NYPD 911. 

I posted a video on YouTube and Twitter showing that my phone can call any number right now except NYPD 911. 

When New York City law enforcement has their plain clothes team harass me like they are doing right this minute, I’ll call NYPD 911 so there is a record of the time, day, date, location, of where I’m being harassed. 

I usually call NYPD 911 anywhere from dozens to hundreds of times per day off Baruch College campus, never in Baruch College.

In total, I’ve called NYPD 911 more than 20,000 times easily if I had to guess because NYC law enforcement has been harassing me every day for years. The NYPD 911 operators tease me and harass me on the phone. 

In addition to NYPD 911 I call all 50 states FBI field offices and press the extension for a live bank robbery or kidnapping. 

I have reported New York City law enforcement to the FBI field offices thousands of times. Lately, I call the FBI field offices dozens to hundreds of times per day when I’m outside of school and New York City law enforcement has their plain clothes team harassing me for hours on end.  

So far the only FBI field offices to block my number are the New York City FBI and the Albany FBI. There might be a few others I’m not sure. The FBI hangs up on me a lot. 

Right now I’m minding my own business trying to study and New York City law enforcement has their plainclothes team viciously harassing me in clear view of public and private security cameras. New York City law enforcement can care less. 

New York City law enforcement just figures there is no way I’ll ever get the security video to prove that New York City law enforcement has people that work for them in plain clothes viciously harassing me every day. 

I’m not mentioning a word about this to anyone at Baruch College.

Every single day when New York City law enforcement has women and men, students and staff, harassing me at Baruch College, shoving their phones in my face, teasing me, blocking me from walking, and crashing into me I just ignore it and walk away. 

Please let me know if you have any advice for me. 

I don’t have a criminal record at all. I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t party. 

New York City law enforcement ran me into the ground and now they tease, rob, and harass me all day every day because people I know pay them to do it. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Greetings Human Resources Administration,

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at HRA with the utmost respect at all times.

Treating everyone at HRA respectfully is more important than anything.

Thank you very much for the help. If it wasn’t for HRA I would have starved to death by now.

On 4/11/2022 I sent a perfectly clear copy of my storage bill to HRA via the mobile app.

My case number is X.

It seems that every month I submit my storage bill to HRA, it doesn’t get paid until I send an email to the Commissioner Department of Social Services.

I can’t imagine that every person who is having a storage room paid by HRA has to email the commissioner every month or visit HRA in person every month to have their storage room paid.

That would create an insane amount of unnecessary work for HRA.

Can someone please look into why this is happening to me every month?

Thank you and have a great day.

Greetings Professor, 

Thank you very much for your consideration since the beginning of class. Now I know why you’re one of the most respected professors on the web. That’s why I signed up for the class in the first place. 

Now that I have taken exam one I have an excellent understanding on how to prepare for the second exam. 

I am going to study at least 1 to 3 hours per day every day starting tomorrow until the next exam. If necessary, I’m more than happy to study 3 to 5 hours per day if that’s what it takes. 

Spring break is perfect to study because I’m going to be doing schoolwork every day and I don’t have to take breaks for classes. 

If I’m correct tomorrow is the day you will assign exactly what poems and stories for the class to be ready to analyze for the exam. As it stands now I have the 2 stories and 3 poems we analyzed.

I have all the PDFs you posted printed out and I’m going to double check again tonight. I’m at school right now so I can print anything I might be missing. 

I’m going to read and hand write the material over and over until I know it inside and out.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Respectful request to a Baruch College professor for an extension (3/22/2022).

 330 total views,  1 views today

Greetings Professor, 

First and foremost I have the utmost respect for you and all my professors. I love this class and the material is fascinating. I will remember it forever. 

Treating people respectfully is more important than anything. That goes triple for you. I’m 45 years old and I can handle a no. 

I just like to mention that upfront because I’m CUNY for life. I’m going to graduate from Baruch College and then I’m off to a CUNY graduate school. 

I want to remain on the best of terms with the entire staff at CUNY and I don’t want anyone to think I’m complaining. I make the best of all situations. That’s how I landed at CUNY.

I am requesting to take Wednesday’s exam next week instead of this week.  

If the answer is no, I 100 percent respect your decision and I’ll make the best of the situation. Either way, I’m studying every waking hour minus work I have to do for other classes. 

I have a good handle on all the material.

I’m not looking to change the rules. I’m not looking for special treatment. I’m merely presenting my situation and asking what the policy is regarding a one-time extension for this one exam. 

I do not speak with any students in the class. I don’t speak with any students in the whole school. 

The reason being is that I’m 45 years old. Furthermore, I’ve been living in the street homeless for the past five years. 

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. Just bad credit, no money, and evictions on my record. 

I mention that because usually when people mention homeless a number of individuals think trouble. Homeless people have a bad reputation. 

The reality of the situation is that there are a lot of homeless people like me. No one would know we are homeless unless we tell them. We are doing everything like everyone else, except at the end of the night, we sleep in cars and the train. 

I’ve been a full time student at CUNY for two years. Street homeless the whole time.

I don’t think the majority of student’s parents would want their children associating with homeless people so I keep to myself. 

I always treat the Baruch College staff with the utmost respect at all times with zero exceptions. The only time I interact with students is during mandatory in class student projects. 

If a comet hits the earth, I will not ask for another extension for any assignment or exam. 

Now that I understand how the class works, I will catch up and stay up with the material. 

I think I can do OK under the circumstances as it stands now.

What put it over the top and made me want to ask is that I’m at the Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room right now and I might have to come back here on Tuesday or Wednesday to another department where I’ve been before. 

Plus I’m not even sure if I have the right material for the exam. Meaning the two poems and two stories.

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me. I can provide all documentation to back up the information in this email. 

I don’t lie to anyone at CUNY or anywhere for that matter. There is no need to. When I’m out in the street the way I am, things happen and sometimes I end up in the hospital. This isn’t including urgent care visits.

I’m mostly healthy. I have all my shots, I’ve been tested for many things. I had a negative COVID test today at CityMD. I keep as clean as humanly possible for a homeless person. 

February and March 2022 Hospital Emergency Room Visits:

March 21, 2022 Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room (here now). 

March 14, 2022 Mount Sinai Hospital Emergency Room 

March 1, 2022 NYU Langone Hospital Emergency Room 

February 19, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room

February 18, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room

February 16, 2022 NYU Langone Hospital Emergency Room 

February 12, 2022 New York Presbyterian Hospital Emergency Room 

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me. I will gladly provide any and all information required.

In the meantime, I’m going to study non-stop and make the best of the situation. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Greetings,

Thank you for the amazing service you provide to New York City and the United States.

First and foremost I always treat all your staff with the utmost respect at all times. That is regardless of how they treat me.

Your company is an asset to New York City. We are lucky to have you.

For the most part, your staff is very friendly. Unfortunately today that was not the case.

The doctor that helped me today was a little rude. I treated the doctor respectfully. I did not sink to the doctor’s level.

Long story short, last night someone chased me into a store on East 34 Street and tried to attack me. The whole thing was recorded on the security video at the store. The NYPD showed up and took my information for a police report. 

The person who chased me into the store drugged me with some type of smoke. I still feel it now and it happened last night.

I don’t drink. I don’t smoke. I don’t have a criminal record. I don’t do anything illegal.

I treat people respectfully regardless of how they treat me.

Not saying this would happen but if one of your staff poured a can of paint on my head I wouldn’t react negatively. I would say thank you, leave, and report it if it was caught on video.

I treated todays doctor with the utmost respect even when the doctor insulted me for no reason. I can care less that the doctor today treated me disrespectfully. I’m just letting you know just in case the doctor gets more complaints about how the doctor treats people you will know that a lot of people are complaining. If I’m the only one, then it’s no big deal too because I’m never going to mention it again.

If I am assigned the same doctor again in the future I will continue to treat that doctor with the utmost respect regardless if the doctor continues to insult me for no reason.

I value my relationship with your company more than one person insulting me who doesn’t even know me. 

Thank you again for the stellar service you provide for New York City. Everyone who is working for the medical field in New York City deserves to be treated like gold by the patients. The service is that crucial and great.

Publically, I have the utmost praise for your company to anyone I ever speak with. I highly recommend you.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to Baruch College about someone pointing a video camera at my class from a podium. 3/14/2022.

Greetings Baruch College,

Someone has a video camera on the podium in this classroom pointing at the class. 

I’m not taking a picture of it because I’m not taking any pictures inside of a classroom. 

It’s not my professors. I suspect it’s another professors. 

It just seems a little strange to have a video camera pointing at the class from a podium. It’s one of the video cameras that people buy when they want to upgrade the video camera on a computer or laptop. 

Not sure if I should contact you or the help desk about this. 

I did not mention a word to my amazing professor about this because I highly suspect it’s not his video camera. 

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to Baruch College about a student harassing me (3/11/2022).

 366 total views,  1 views today

Greetings Baruch College,

This was a very quick one. 

I was walking up the stairs in the vertical building. 

A student walked in front of me, so I slowed down to give him the right of way. He sort of faked like he was going one way and then went another way. Then he started to waive his cell phone in my face. 

This happened on the six floor by the steps, not the escalator side. 

I did nothing as usual. I didn’t say a word, I just kept walking. I have no idea who the student/person is. 

Also, I don’t understand why students would be taking pictures or video recording other students, isn’t that against the rules? I don’t understand what someone might do with that video?

Thank you for the offer to speak with Baruch College security about these issues. I’m going to respectfully say no thank you. 

I don’t want to report any instances of students harassing me unless they are caught on Baruch College security cameras. I would prefer to avoid getting into she said/he said scenarios that would happen during the pre-technology era decades ago. 

Regardless of what anyone does to me, I never say a word so I have nothing to defend. I don’t care if a student put her/his hands on me. I would just run away and then email you or the NYPD.

There is nothing anyone at CUNY can do to me to get me to react in a negative fashion under any circumstances. 

First of all, it’s the way I am. Second of all, CUNY is too valuable to me. 

On a positive note, everything at school is going amazing. I love it here even with some students that I have no idea who they are harassing me for no reason. 

Hopefully one day there will be more security cameras in the hallways although I know that there are a lot of people that have to connect to make a decision such as that at Baruch College / CUNY. 

I’m about to do an informative speech in COM 1010. That is one of my favorite classes. 

I’m going to do my speech about CUNY / CUNY grad schools so I can start to research where I want to go for graduate school. I’m sticking with CUNY. I love being part of the CUNY family. Nothing is perfect, overall CUNY is a stellar offering. 

The only thing that would make me want to leave CUNY is the million to one long shot that my outside ventures start earning hundreds of thousands of dollars. This month I earned about $3 so I’m not quite there yet. 

I owe a lot to CUNY, so I don’t want to give the impression that I’m always complaining. I started to attend office hours with my professors and it’s giving me a huge advantage in my classes. Office hours are such a valuable resource, I can’t believe I’m just learning it now. 

Last thing, I wasn’t even filing my Federal or New York State taxes before attending CUNY. Now I file every year in January. That is one of dozens or hundreds of benefits I enjoy on a daily basis thanks to CUNY. 

I’m going to continue to stay on top of my studies and one day soon I’ll get a roof back over my head. There is a lot of staff members at CUNY that helped me along the way that I can’t wait to go back to and say I’m not homeless anymore one day, including you. 

Thank you again and have a great day. 

Mark Pine
