Mayor Michael Bloomberg was greeted by protesters Tuesday while attending a campaign breakfast for seniors in Chinatown.
Protesters say the mayor's policies only serve the wealthy, while destroying the predominantly working families and small business community of Chinatown.
Among their complaints are the continued closure of Park Row, a rezoning plan they say has caused dozens of long-time residents to be evicted, and increases in water rates and rents on small businesses.
"Bloomberg is not welcome in Chinatown. Today he thinks he can come here and buy a few votes by giving a free lunch. But a free lunch is not going to make up for eight years of destroying the community," said one protestor.
I can picture Nazli feverishly typing a nasty letter to these folks right about now.
Tonight when the mayor comes to the Bay Terrace Jewish Center, no doubt he'll be praised for what great things he's done for our borough. There will be no protest. Because although Bloomberg is full of shit, Queens is full of sheep.
