Ulrich alleges that Crowley put the squeeze on Broad Channel restaurant owner

From the Queens Chronicle:

Councilman Eric Ulrich (R-Ozone Park) dropped a bombshell on one of his colleagues this week, an allegation that could shake up her bitter race less than three weeks before Election Day.

In a Monday interview with the Chronicle, Ulrich accused Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Glendale) of abusing her power as a lawmaker — claiming she sent a “SWAT team” of city agencies after a popular Broad Channel restaurant last year, not long after one of her sons, then an employee of the eatery, was injured in a fight nearby.

The establishment is in his district.

According to Ulrich and Bayview co-owner Anthony Martelli, Crowley’s two sons Dennis, 20, and Owen O’Hara, 19, were involved in a physical altercation about a block away from the restaurant on July 1, 2016.

Two sources with knowledge of the situation told the Chronicle that a criminal investigation into the incident is still ongoing.

However, Martelli said he believed Dennis O’Hara, who worked at Bayview at the time, to be the aggressor, while Ulrich said those who witnessed the incident “all know who kicked the kid’s ass and thinks he deserved it.”

“The irony here is that the kid and his brother are known for making trouble,” Ulrich said. “I don’t want to attack Crowley’s kids or anything, but her son got smart with his mouth and they followed him outside and kicked his ass down the street from the place.”

In response, the Republican lawmaker said his “idiot” colleague prompted a multiagency task force — including officials from the FDNY, the State Liquor Authority, the MTA, the Board of Standards and Appeals and the departments of Buildings and Health and Mental Hygiene — to be deployed to the restaurant on or around Sept. 2, 2016.

“There was never any underage drinking there,” Ulrich said. “But this is what she did. She did everything she could to shut this guy down. It’s like someone went in there with instructions to bang [Bayview] over the head until it got shut down.”


Well, the one thing we can all agree with Ulrich on is that Crowley is an idiot. How refreshing for a fellow tweeder to come out and say it, though!

In all seriousness, though, this is a lot to digest, and there are several more allegations at the original link, but let's stick with this for now. We already know that one of the Crowley boys likes to be verbally abusive and this fits in with that pattern. There was no press for some reason about this alleged incident at the time it happened. An assault this violent most certainly was a 911 call and the city's NYPD mapping tool confirms 2 felonious assaults at the location on that day. But if what Ulrich said - "all know who kicked the kid’s ass" - is true, then why have there been no arrests? And why would the mother of these 2 launch her own assault against the restaurant instead of the perp?

What's missing from this story is when Dennis O'Hara was let go from the restaurant. Was it that night? Was it because of this incident which was apparently witnessed by many and with an identifiable suspect? Who exactly did he piss off? It seems to be someone untouchable. A mother's natural inclination, one would think, would be to make sure justice was served to the punk that beat up her kid and not go after a business owner. She's hooked up real good with the PBA and other NYPD unions, so why haven't they arrested the perp?

Why were the MTA and BSA called in? What in tarnation do they have to do with any of this?

Sounds like her kid is a spoiled A hole. Hopefully people see her for what she is.

No wonder the Bayview has been closed all summer. That restaurant just got renovated after Sandy leveled it. Crowley seems to have raised her version of Goofus and Goofus.

The problem is Ulrich may have damaged himself and this story by taking those donations and describing the ruckus like an old school guido.

There is more to this though, because there is a lot of new infrastructure being built at the start of the bike/foot path of the bridge, notably a bizarre giant cement patio. There is no information or signs describing what it is and when it will be completed. This might be where the MTA comes in. And probably the Democrat Machine.

Another reason to vote for Ulrich. Dizzy Lizzy supporting his opponent tells me the guy must be a waste.

Everyone here has been wondering what happened. You don't put that kind of money in to fix a restaurant after Sandy and just close. They reopened around April 16 and closed after one season. Plus Ulrich has a lot of credibility down here.

Rumor has it that Crowley's kids got tuned up by an off duty cop who was eating/drinking at the she can't go after the perp because the boys in blue would abandon her. But the restaurant fired her son so she can go after them.

Whether these kids were verbally abusive or not, Council Member Ulrich appears to be condoning or even encouraging law-breaking physical assaults. Assault and battery are against the law even if someone is verbally abusive. Ulrich sounds more like a old-fashioned thug rather than an elected official. As for Crowley, her actions, if true, are disgraceful.

Why is Eric Ulrich even talking about abuses of power, when he is funded by mob money? Look it up, Queens Crappers: Robert Pisani and his wife, the former owner of Bay View have been caught by giving money to Ulrich to fund his illegal, third term as a council member, when he already promised ALL of his public and constituency that he would NOT run for a third term.

Where is any pretense of honest, ethical leadership here, that leads by example. Eric Ulrich is the quintessential, class A narcissist: arrogant, deceitful, manipulative, greedy, selfish, unaccountable, cowardly, and monstrously self-serving. He also misbehaves like a spiteful, infantile, unresponsive tyrant. As a completely ignored constituent of his, I should know, and I am living proof that Ulrich devalues honesty itself - to pathologically traitorous effect!

Please, all voters of the 32nd councilmanic district: Stop birthing your own monsters and get rid of this mob goon (and kindergarten hustler/henchman/boy). We've got a lawyer of integrity running against Ulrich, and if you cast your vote for this unfunny, GOP clown, then you will ONCE AGAIN receive the openly practiced, taxation WITHOUT representation that you so rightfully deserve!

When you're in a ditch, Queens Crappers - STOP DIGGING!

Erich Ulrich is a disgrace who devalues honesty itself. Last week, he blocked me, and his opponent, Michael G. Scala from his Facebook and Twitter accounts, when we dare to publicly tell the truth about his improper and unlawful third term run, when he had already assured his languishing constituents that he would not be running for a third, illegal time.

Worse, it has been revealed that he took mob money from the former proprietor of Bayview, Robert Pisani, and his wife, which is the reason for why city council candidate Mike Scala and I were blocked from his social media accounts.

Eric Ulrich and Joe Addabbo, Jr., have turned southeastern Queens into a giant landfill, the center of which is polluted by the foreign owned, Racino gambling mill, as they continue to blight the landscape to more unlivable heights of public squalor, versus private splendor for themselves.

Give Mike Scala a chance, after nine failed years of 300% false, fake and failed leadership within the entire city council. Because, when a publicly elected removes constituents like me and Mike Scala from his social media accounts, followed by the outright refusal to help constituents like me at all, then it's openly practiced government tyranny that leaves unrepresented taxpayers' to their own devices, and it's killing southeastern Queens, to ruinous outcome and effect!

Elizabeth Crowley has removed scores of her constituents from her social media accounts as well. Pretty thin skinned!

I don't know, but the civics and the community board seemed to be pretty pleased with the way it was being run. It doesn't seem anyone came forward to complain...except for Crowley!

Are we to believe that the violations were unwarranted, made up by the authorities, the Bayview was sandbagged.

To the second to Last Anonymous: ❝Elizabeth Crowley has removed scores of her constituents from her social media accounts as well. Pretty thin skinned.

My point is that NO publicly elected official has the right to censure any and all replies——exactly like they don't have the right to ignore ANY of their constituents, especially when a person requests help from them. No public official has the luxury, much less the right, to refuse to help one of their constituents (and even someone who isn't a constituent), but they have been rejecting help for decades, where they now do it with impunity, as if they are exalted.

What both saddens and angers me about any misconduct that endeavors to mistreat We, the People (who pay their publicly unauthorized salaries), is that even REAL members of organized crime family rings worldwide could never rival, much less surpass, all city and state government strangleholds that they have FOISTED over hardworking, decent people who need help. Because, when no one helps, then that leads by lawlessness, vigilantism, violence and outright anarchy——ironically, the SAME kind of anarchy and government tyranny that BOTH of these totally failed council brats (and terminally 'WEASEL F**KWADS'), that has been unlawfully imposed on their subjects, all of whom are now completely fed up and disgusted to the point of where voter turnout is the lowest that it's ever been——and getting worse by the hour.

Sadder still is how Crowley & Ulrich (no, it's not an LLC!), don't deserve second (and unlawful THIRD!) terms, when they didn't redeem themselves even MARGINALLY enough to hang on to their FIRST TERMS (of epic, humanitarian fail). And, the public be damned (again and STILL)!

Intelligent valid point but are you kidding me ?
They don't give a shit because these people are a buddy system of egomaniac communists rotten from the Governor & mayor down all looking to rule a roost via imperial decree.
This is what happens when you don't change them this allowing them to fester and organize into an organized crime syndicate.

When are stupid New York voters going to wake up and realize they are going to be royally Ffffed by there own voting habits. Double Ffffed if they own a private home when socialism come knocking on the front door saying "Take this $2 check and GET TF OUT" you don't need this big house & property.

Don't think or say that will never happen like those dumb sheep on the New London waterfront and small 1 family homes near the train station.
What's wrong with NY voters do they enjoy re-committing suicide every election or are they just deaf, blind and stupid ?
I'm guessing all of the above and more !!

Any Queens elected officials who are paid to represent Broad Channel, Rockaway, Howard Beach do not. They serve their own interests. Go to their office with an issue and see how much help you don't get. But the illegal aliens are first in line and get the assistance and government subsidies. They all are rotten.

Really? How did you come to that conclusion?

And, who's fault is that? Unresponsive, government-hack tyrants will plunder whatever they are allowed to exploist. We, the People are supposed to be government, and there are millions more of us (and our tax dollars), than there are of them. Stop whining and start a campaign of activism, protest, rally and resistance.

And, to the last Anonymous who said: 'And, the other side's corruption to the bone is OK?' NO CORRUPTION in city, state and federal government is ever 'OK.' Besides, both the left wing and the right wing belong to the same diseased bird. That's why voter turnout continues to drop each year to the lowest numbers in half a century, because the system is rigged to fail its subjects.

But, that doesn't justify an automatic win for Eric Ulrich JUST because he pointed out obvious corruption by another council member (of equal fail). What about his OWN mill of endless corruption, including taking contributions from the very people of mob rule (former owners Robert Pisani and his wife) at Bay View that he ironically exposed through Crowley (a payback after Dizzy Lizzy failed to endorse Emperor Ulrich without any clothes)!
