Receipt Confirmation – Customer Inquiry – INC000000357652

Dear Mark Pine,

Thank you for contacting the Queens Public Library’s Customer Service Center.  Your request is very important to us.

We have received the following inquiry from you: I want you to know..

Details:

Let us know: Greetings, I think you all are doing a great job running the libraries. I’m not here to complain. I just wanted to mention something real quick. I am hanging out in Long Island City, it’s August 7, 2022. In the past two hours, I have seen about 20 people bring their dogs to defecate and urinate on the Hunters Point Library front lawn. I’m suggesting the library put some type of fence around the front lawns because for some reason people are hell-bent on trashing the lawns in front of the Hunters Point branch. I don’t have a dog so I don’t know why they are doing it. Maybe dogs need grass to go to the bathroom, I don’t know. All I know is that it isn’t sanitary for anyone to bring young children on the lawn in front of the Hunters Point library. I know you have a lot to deal with, especially these days. Thank you again for the stellar services you provide. Have a great day.

We have assigned inquiry number  INC000000357652 to your request.  Please include this number in your contact with the Queens Public Library Customer Service Center.

We will get back to you shortly. Most inquiries are handled within three business days.

Sincerely Yours,

Email to HRA (NYC welfare office) about my storage room. June 9, 2022.

Greetings HRA, 

First and foremost thank you very much for all the help. The whole HRA staff is as helpful as humanly possible. 

I just submitted my storage payment for the month of July 2022. For some reason, the bill doesn’t get paid unless I send an email here. For example, there have been months where I had to pay the bill out of the other money you send me or the payment would have been late. 

When I receive the bill from the storage company I take a screenshot of the bill on my phone and upload a perfectly clear copy into the HRA app. 

I just completed my recertification. If I’m correct everything went perfectly: the interview, the documentation from CUNY Edge and me, etc. Your team at the 14th Street HRA location was very helpful. 

Please help with the storage payment if possible. If you require any additional information from me please let me know. 

Thank you and have a great day. 

Mark Pine

Email to New York City Human Resources Administration about my welfare case recertification. June 7, 2022.

Greetings HRA,

I turned in all my documentation for my recertification. 

Baruch College turned in the school documentation. 

I had my interview in person at 14 Street Manhattan today June 7, 2022. 

I just noticed in my account that there was a language questionnaire. 

After I filled out and completed the language questionnaire I uploaded it into the Access HRA app. 

I uploaded it into the other tab because I didn’t see a tab for language questionnaires. 

I’ll keep checking for any additional updates. 

Please let me know if anything else is needed for my recertification. 

Thank you and have a great day.

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.

 1,120 total views

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.

Opinion: Email to the Human Resources Administration. 5/2/2022.

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.

Email to my Baruch College Professor April 12, 2022.

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).

 420 total views,  5 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. 

Mark Pine
