    Renting or buying property in New York City can sometimes be a headache. The New York Times has a thought-provoking article on apartment hunting in NYC. Back in the day in the late 1970's, a person could possibly rent an apartment in Brooklyn for as little as under $100 a month. This was the era when former New York Governor and now deceased Mario Cuomo. was mayor of the big apple. Times back then were simpler as the cost of living was significantly cheaper. Of course, rent in Manhattan was always sky high unless you lived in Harlem or the Bronx. The N.Y. Times article goes on to mention if July is a good time of the year to search and rent an apartment in New York City? That depends. To rent an apartment nowadays in Manhattan, look forward possibly to paying $1,500 and better on a month to month basis. WHile it's uncertain how much rent will be in a New York City housing project, you can still look forward to shelling out over $1,000 monthly. Rne twill allegedly continue to skyrocket not just in Manhattan, but throughout the rest of the boroughs of NYC years to come. Moving around in New York City -

    Some people are allegedly moving to New York City possibly just to get a free ride on college tuition. New York City Gov. Andrew Cuomo, son of now deceased former Gov. Mario Cuomo, announced early 2017 there would be free college available to residents of the big apple. Free college tuition in New York City has certain conditions. You're obligated after graduation to contribute at least a few years of service working in New York City. If you move out of New York or unable to meet your obligation of working in New York after graduating from college and getting your free ride through any New York City college, you're required to allegedly paid back all the tuition money. Some people might be moving to New York just to shack up with relatives and use their address as a means of getting a free ride through college from New York City government. New York is not the only state to offer residents tuition free college. Having a free scholarship on the government dime is a "blessing," and entitles anyone striving for excellence to get organized to earn "good money." Anyone who qualifies for free college tuition on Uncle Sam's dime should use it to their fullest potential and go non stop award achieving the goal of graduating with their bachelors or Masters degree in their field of expertise so they can showcase their skills that to where the employers and the world.

    Have you ever heard of anything like this? According to an article posted by the Brooklyn Eagle, a judge in Brooklyn allowed a gun toting suspect two more months of freedom to prove himself as he got caught drinking in public and failed to report what he did to the court. Brooklyn judge Pamela Chen, noted in the Brooklyn Eagle article, dealt with gun suspect Mr. Tyson Jeffries in court, as it's noted he struggled with drug addiction and getting caught with a handgun. He allegedly told the NYPD to "F------ shoot him." Really? Who in their right mind wants to willingly die? The Brooklyn Eagle article goes on to mention he was placed in special education in second grade and dropped out of high school in ninth grade while involving himself in the streets. Unfortunately, he had to serve 15 months in prison due to a conviction on certain charges. Brooklyn Eagle goes on to mention grew up in Red Hook projects in Brooklyn without a father and had his first job ever in life as a grown man while taking care of his grandmother for $11 an hour. The flip side to this is Tyson still has a chance to make something good of himself and shouldn’t be written off as an unproductive citizen. As long as a person is still living, she or he still has a chance to make something good of themselves by repenting for their past wrongdoings and striving for excellence by being a productive citizen of society. Perhaps there will be good reports in the future of Mr. Tyson Jeffries doing something good for his community and being an ideal transformational role model for change. Tyson Jeffries given 2nd chance by Brooklyn judge? -

    Accused thief Martin Shkreli is reported to show his true character to offline. A courtroom in Brooklyn on Monday is reported to have experienced his real character up close and personal Robin Leach style. Martin is quoted to be "threatening to sue financial firm SEC solutions group for taking too long to untangle his company's long overdue expenses," according to the New York Post article. He's accused of jacking up prices for AIDS related drugs in a move of potential greed without a care in his heart about his drug pill clientele. If he's convicted at trial, how many years in prison do you feel Martin Shkreli will serve? Did you also know Martin has been kicked/suspended from for acting out online numerous times?

If and when Martin Shkreli is convicted and only serves 20 years behind bars, what will post prison life be like for him? Will Shkreli start another business whereas he allegedly offers AIDS suppressing drugs at reasonable prices? Will the general public hear about him starting over in life by flipping burgers at or rolling burritos at What will Martin's life be like after getting out of the slammer?
