Opinion: Email to HRA about my MetroCard allowance and cold food retailers not accepting the welfare EBT card on January 13, 2023.

 65 total views,  1 views today

Greetings HRA,

First and foremost, I always treat everyone at HRA with the absolute utmost respect at all times. That is more important than any of this.

Thank you for saving my life with the food and money.

The stuff that is going on with law enforcement sabotaging people’s food at some, not all, soup kitchens is out of control. Thank God I don’t have to deal with that.

People I know pay the NYPD and others to harass me. That’s why I’m homeless.

Question. What is the story with the Baruch College student MetroCard money?

I’m a full-time student at Baruch College.

I think school starts back up on January 25, 2023.

If you’re not too busy, please let me know when the MetroCard money starts back up.

A few weeks ago, I stopped receiving my MetroCard money around Christmas 2022.

Additionally, can someone please look into why there are so many places in Manhattan that sell cold food that don’t accept SNAP/EBT/Food Stamps?

Sometimes I ask people at food stores, markets, supermarkets, etc., whether they take food stamps.

Some of them, not all, say they don’t take food stamps/EBT like it’s beneath them or something. Like, that’s for poor people or something like that.

In my humble opinion, that is ridiculous.

I appreciate the help.

I’m living in the street homeless for the past five years or longer.

I don’t drink.

I don’t smoke.

I don’t party.

I don’t do anything illegal.

Just no money and bad credit.

I don’t look homeless.

I understand the government doesn’t want people blowing the food money on bad things so that is why we are forced to spend out welfare food money at participating retailers.

The thing is, a number of Manhattan retailers are not accepting the card.

There are a lot of retailers that do accept the card.

I don’t understand why any cold food retailers would turn down food stamps when there are so many of us receiving them.

It doesn’t make sense.

Why would a company turn down government money?

Can someone please look into it?

Thank you and have a great day.

Mark Pine.

Email to the coworking place where I belong about the Brooklyn location on December 31, 2022.

Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

I was recently leaving the location in Brooklyn, New York.

It was December 31, 2022 at about 2 AM.

I wanted to quickly mention something.

It’s not a big deal.

I just want to cover myself.

I always treat everyone at the coworking with the utmost respect at all times no matter what. That includings staff, building staff, etc.

When I was leaving tonight the front door to the building was locked like it always is late at night.

I looked over at the door person and he said and motioned for me to unlock the door and let myself out.

I didn’t really feel comfortable unlocking the front door, but of course I wasn’t going to make a big deal out of it so I said thank you, have a great night, and I let myself out.

I’m a New York State licensed real estate broker.

I’m 46 years old.

I’ve been in real estate for twenty years.

I would never touch the lock on the front door of a building unless I was instructed to by the building staff.

I’m just thinking in terms of someone from the management seeing a security video of a person unlocking the front door from the inside.

If the doorman wasn’t there it would be a security hazard.

Additionally, if someone unlocked the front door of the building from the inside without the door person’s instructions that would be disrespectful and of course I would never do it.

In addition to being a polite and respectful person in general, I look at things through a real estate lens.

I might lease out a floor in the building to a client one day or something like that.

I would never burn any bridges with any landords or management companies in New York or anywhere for that matter.

Just wanted to mention it.

I love the location in Brooklyn, it’s one of my favorite.

Thank you and have a great day. .

Notice of Claim to sue the New York City Human Resources Administration.

December 29, 2022.

First and foremost I always treat everyone from the New York Courts, HRA, the NYC Comptroller’s Office, etc., with the absolute utmost respect at all times. 

That is more important than any of this. 

I’m going to be suing New York City for the rest of my life because New York City law enforcement is never going to stop teasing, harassing, and sabotaging me. 

I would like to sue the New York City Human Resources Administration (HRA) for $150,000.

HRA cut off my MetroCard money. 

I’m a full time student at Baruch College CUNY. 

Every week I receive money from HRA to purchase a one week unlimited MetroCard. 

For some reason the MetroCard money is canceled for next week and going forward.

I contacted HRA about it on December 23, 2022. I received the following confirmation number. 

Your City of New York Correspondence Number is #1-1-6078274

There is a chance that HRA cut off all student’s MetroCard money for the winter break or holiday. 

If that’s the case then I’m wrong. 

If all college public assistance students are receiving their MetroCard money during the winter holiday and only mine has been cut off then I’m going to sue. 

I contacted a few government agencies about the HRA MetroCard money and no one has responded which seems a little strange. 

I’m not 100 percent sure about this one because I don’t know anyone that goes to college in New York City that is on public assistance. 

Law enforcement sabotages almost every move I make. 

Rich people I grew up with pay the NYPD and others to tease, harass, and sabotage me every day. 

I contacted the CCRB, NYPD IA, and the NYC DOI; they can’t stop New York City law enforcement from teasing, harassing, and sabotaging me every day. 

That is why I want to be sure that I’m not the only public assistance student that had their MetroCard money shut off for the winter holiday. 

I contacted the HRA Commissioner’s Office about the situation and didn’t hear back yet. 

I hope I’m wrong. 

Could you imagine if out of all the college students in New York City that the NYPD or another law enforcement agency went to HRA and threatened HRA to shut off my MetroCard only?

New York City law enforcement has run scams like that on me several times before. 

I’m about to sue the NYPD next month. 

Please let me know if you require any additional information from me.

Thank you and have a great day.

Opinion: Email to US Government Agencies on December 26, 2022 at about 10 AM. New York City law enforcement basically kidnapped me right now. I’m on the 3 train uptown.

Greetings US Government Agencies,

I was taking the number 3 subway from Downtown to Midtown in New York City. 

In my opinion, law enforcement knocked me out with drugs like they always do. 

I woke up on the train and now we are at a stop that has a lot of crime and drugs. 

Now law enforcement won’t move the train. 

The train is stopped. 

There is no announcement and no explanation why we are not moving. 

I’m on the 3 train uptown somewhere in New York City. 

Please help. 

Law enforcement is harassing me around the clock.

Greetings coworking,

I love coworking, it’s my favorite coworking in New York City.

I’m on the X floor of X location in Midtown West on December 25, 2022 at 5 PM.

I understand that not everyone is going to respect coworking like most of the members do.

Some people leave their belongings and garbage all over the place.

I would never say a word to anyone about it including your members and even staff at the locations.

I only mention it to corporate here.

Your customer service is stellar by the way 🙂

There are 3 booths on the X floor.

1 both has someone sitting there.

The other booth has had someones things on the table all day since this morning.

The final booth has a sweatshirt on it since this morning.

I moved the sweatshirt so I can sit down to a nearby counter that can easily be seen.

If a person comes back and says they are sitting at this booth I will gladly move.

I don’t feel comfortable ever touching anything that isn’t mine although the sweatshirt hasn’t moved for 7 or 8 hours so I think it will be OK.

There is also garbage on the floor by the elevator.

There is also someone’s phone next to the sink since this morning.

Another person left a note pad on another table hours ago and I placed it on the ledge next to the sweatshirt.

Please fill me in on any additional protocol because I want to follow the rules 1000 percent perfectly and be a positive addition to your community.

Specifially what is the policy if it’s after hours and someone hasn’t been seen for hours and has left their belongings and garbage for several hours in a common area that is blocking other members from sitting.

If you say don’t touch it, of course, I won’t move it.

I hope you have 1000 locations in New York City one day soon.

The coworking team, strategy, and software is amazing.

Please advise.

Thank you and have a great day.

Email to my coworking place about a polite interaction with the cleaning staff in Midtown West on December 23, 2022.

 124 total views,  1 views today

Greetings coworking,

I love coworking.

Today is December 23, 2022. It’s about 8:40 PM.

I was on the fifth floor at X location in the kitchen area.

A member of your staff said they need to clean the floors. Specifically, mop the floor.

I politely and respectfully said, of course, I’ll move and went into a phone booth.

Usually, the phone booths say 30 minutes, this one says 1 hour.

In about 30 minutes or so, I’ll just go to another floor if the person is still cleaning.

I just wanted to let you know that I always treat your staff and facilities with the utmost respect at all times.

Your team does a stellar job running the places.

I always put my garbage and dirty cups in the designated areas.

I would never say anything to anyone, although I see a number of people make a mess and not clean up after themselves. That is why I go above and beyond to clean up after myself and make sure that I create the least amount of work possible for your excellent team.

I tell everyone I speak with that they should look into your coworking offerings.

I’m not concerned about referral fees; I just love the service you provide.

Thank you and have a great day.

Greetings Coworking,

I love coworking. It’s the best coworking on earth.

I was in the kitchen on November 28, 2022. 5:15 PM.

A man walked into the kitchen and tried to crash into me for some reason. I’m unsure why.

I just stopped walking and let the person walk by me.

I didn’t say a word.

Thankfully there were security cameras right there if necessary.

I have no idea who the person is or what he looks like.

If someone at the coworking pours a can of paint on my head and throws my laptop in the garbage, I will say thank you and walk away.

No matter how great of a service you provide, there are always people who will disrespect the place; it’s not your fault.

For example, people that come to the coworking and make a mess, leave cups and garbage all over the place, sleep here, camp out in the phone booths for hours, etc.

If I see anything blatant, I’ll report it here.

I keep to myself. I do my networking on the web, not at the coworking.

I treat everyone at the coworking, staff, door people, members, etc., with the utmost respect. However, I’m not looking to make contacts from the coworking, and I’m not looking for dates at the coworking.

There are plenty of places to meet people in New York City.

I like to have places like your provide to work.

I would never put myself in a position for there to be a misunderstanding with someone that would jeopardize my good standing at the coworking.

No one needs to contact me about this; it’s no big deal.

I just like to report what’s happening because there are always people looking for trouble, and I’m not one of them.

I always treat your staff, door people, facilities, etc., with the absolute utmost respect at all times.

There is nothing that even comes close to your coworking in New York City.

When/if I start making money, I’m going to lease space here.

I hope you take over millions of additional buildings because your company is amazing.

Thank you and have a great day.

Warmest Regards,

Mark Pine

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..


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,
