Ydanis Rodriguez — Hypocritical Council Member

I know what you’re thinking — a hypocritical politician?! The horror! But the fact that my local council member, Ydanis Rodriguez, is running for re-election is particularly galling, considering his past stance on a major issue.

Top Hamburgers in New York

So let’s see how I can rationalize this piece of click bait… oh wait, hamburgers are moist, so there you go! I am a big fan of hamburgers, and I’ve got to admit there are lots of good ones here (so maybe New York is not all bad!). This is by no means a definitive list; it is just some
