Astoria Mountain Park: An idea whose time has come.

March 10th, 2014 by

On the northeast border of Astoria, there is a forest covered urban mountain whose origins are shrouded in mystery. This would make a great location for a very unique new park. Unfortunately though, this forest and 'mountain' may be bulldozed soon.


Who wants to play Bloomberg-opoly?

December 30th, 2013 by

A few years ago a goon I know created this - I thought it'd be nice to updated it a little and bring back for Bloomberg's finally few hours in office.

Motorcycle Anarchy fixed in one easy step.

The cure to crazy motorcyclists swarming the roads of NYC is simple: let them have a Sunday morning to go for a drive free of car traffic.

The Triboro RX: An RX for disaster.

August 22nd, 2013 by

Do you want to see the city spend 10s of millions of dollars condemning hundreds family homes? Would you like to see severe service disruptions to the N and Q lines in Queens, including a potential full closure (to last months, or years) of the entire route between Queensboro Plaza and Ditmars blvd? Do you want to pay more in taxes to have your household trash trucked out of NYC? Or perhaps even see the reopening of the Staten Island landfill? Do you want to pay more for everything from Chinese food to plywood at Home Depot, and even higher rents in new buildings?

If the 'Triboro RX' subway line were to be built, all of the above would happen. This might sound like hyperbole, but when you take a serious look at the facts I'm going to lay out, you'll see what I mean.

A simple way to fix “Stand Your Ground”

August 13th, 2013 by

I propose an amazingly simple amendment to Florida's "Stand Your Ground" law. Everyone learned it in grade school or with your siblings: It is simply called 'You Started it". If you start some shit, and there is clear evidence that you did (like a call to a 911 dispatcher who tells you to back the fuck off and let the cops deal with it but you go all mercenary anyway), then everything that happens from that moment forward is your fault. You start a fight with someone and kill them? Jail for life.

Actually, fuck that, death sentence.

This law is so utterly brilliant in its simplicity that it should be used on a national level.

If your momma didn't teach you not to start fights (especially ones you can't handle), you deserve a long time in a cell or worse.

The tiny volunteer tourist railroad that could is told it cant by corrupt, criminal politicians

August 12th, 2013 by

In Kingston, NY, the little all volunteer tourist railroad that could was told no - you can't - and is now being thrown out of business by misguided government officials.

Chinatown Subway Party: What Comes Next?

June 26th, 2013 by

Chinatown tunnel in 2003

Thus past weekend, the legendary Jeff Stark organized a party that was held in the Chinatown segment if the second avenue subway. The NYPD is likely to arrest him and potentially all guests to this event in the coming days, months and even years, depending of course on how bored and desperate they are to make arrests and maintain appearances.


The Scandal At Willow Lake, NYC Parks Department partially reopens the ‘Pat Dolan’ trail.

June 4th, 2013 by

I found out via Queens Crap on Sunday that The NYC Parks Department reopened Willow Lake Trail on weekends, effective immediately.

They must have been really busy these last 2 weeks. As we recently reported, Willow Lake Trail has basically been abandoned for the last 15 years.

(Scroll down for the complete report) - with update!

You're probably asking yourself why The LTVSquad, a group & website dedicated to sneaking into abandoned buildings and tunnels - is featuring a post about an abandoned park trail in Queens. Why would we spend our time at such a place? The answer is simple: we're looking for the money, and we're looking for answers.

Vancouver Vs. NYC Subway Tunnel construction

The above photo is from one of the easiest subway tunnel explorations I've ever done. It is the mouth of the tunnel for the new 'Canada Line' subway route in Vancouver, B.C. (more…)
