    It's a special world now - Moshiach is blinks away!

    I don’t know whether it is because you are a good story teller, writer, B”H – but the story rings loud and clear and leaves a very strong impression on me. A very strong impression, a grim one – but isn’t the truth supposed to come out before Moshiach comes? – this is a story reflecting the essentialness of the times. May we be zoche to that time NOW.

    I am so sorry this happend to you and your family. I just drove the same route today and it just disgusts me that such a thing could happen. But wow thank you for showing us how you took a life lesson away form this and saw how the purim story relates to you personally.

    Definitely file a complaint, it has to be recorded.

    People in your situation NEED to have Google maps with traffic and actually consult it if you have a smartphone. there is just no excuse anymore. You would have known EXACTLY which route to take and avoided alot of drama with your family.

    #5 not everyone has a smart phone and even so if there is traffic everywhere what will Google traffic help?
    Remember everyone that just because we live in America doesn’t mean bad things won’t happen to us just because we are Jewish. I got yelled at just yesterday on the street, Some bigot said I should “burn like the other six million” as I walked by minding my own business. like it says in the Hagadah, “every generation they stand up to destroy us.” We have to look out for one another and always be aware of our surroundings.

    New York City has its laws, that you can sue the city, especially in such a case R”L. Hashem should give parnoso it should be only good, but USE IT OUT, in a secheldike way. Again, file a complaint of HATE CRIME, and POLICE NEGLIGENCE (efsher complicity as much as the rest of that teenage group!)

    oh no :(
    Guest
    oh no :(

    once again super police man did not appear instantly when you needed him . Guess what the police have no responsibility to protect you as a individual take the time to learn how to defend yourself and install any missing guts being as i suspect we may all need to to do some standing up and fighting in the coming time

    the point

    Sorry, too many details to read and get to the point but in short the point is, we need Bloomberg out and Guiliani back to fight crime instead of collecting money for the city

    Obviously its useless to say that you should of this or that. Clearly hashem has his plans. BUT its a big mistake to take canal street because you will sit in Holland tunnel traffic for no reason and sit again in GWB traffic. The easiest way is to take the FDR or if you want to use the west side you can take the Brooklyn bridge and take the first left on Chambers st all the way across to the west side.

    during rush hour, it is best to use the Jackie Robinson to the grand central to the triboro bridge to the Harlem river.

    There are other ways too, but one thing for sure stay far away from canal. basics!

    Shocked does not begin to describe what I feel.

    The fact that the policemen did not do anything ASTOUNDS me. That is pure injustice. I am simply horrified.
