Considering the usurpation of parkland for the creation of Shea Stadium and now CitiField, you would think the Mets would shovel the damn sidewalk outside their parking lots.
Or is this part of the deal with the city? We'll take the land, taxpayers pay for snow shoveling. Or not. Just leave it. Wasn't Bloomberg threatening fines to homeowners and businesses for not cleaning the snow? Well they need look no further than the entire perimeter of CitiField. I was ankle deep in the white stuff this past week.
It seems there's no trouble with the wide sidewalk right in front of the Mets offices where Wilpon's driver waits for him every night.
But screw everyone else who's just passing through. Who needs them?
