**** Yenta Yack from the Back of the Hack…(These are conversations and opinions that I have eavesdropped on in my Yellow Mobile Conveyance Lounge).

I am licensed by the New York City Taxi Commission as a Taxi driver and I am licensed by the New York City Consumer Affairs Department as a Tour Guide. (This means that the passenger(s) is going with a guy who is approved by NYC and the vehicle has all proper insurance in effect.  I drive the streets. 

I was not sent by “central casting.”

**** A prominent New York City publication has come out with a blockbuster article asking the question,” Why do Jews hate Donald Trump?” Here are only some of the prominent public figures (all Jewish) it mentions:  Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, Chuck Schumer, Mike Bloomberg, Dianne Feinstein, Joe Liberman and Richard Blumenthal. The newspaper which shall remain nameless because we don’t want to help its declining circulation numbers is owned by a Jew.  No outcry from our Governor or our Mayor, both of whom lament the growing antisemitism in the state and city. 

**** Health Department officials rolled out the Big Apple’s latest condom wrapper on Valentine’s Day, featuring the “NYC LEGEND XL” label screaming across a gold-colored sheath with the city’s famed street grid in the background.  New York first laid eyes on the NYC Condom on Valentine’s Day 2007 and the program has grown since. Officials have distributed more than 424 million condoms and other safer-sex products since then Dr. Oxiris Barbot is the commissioner of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. She is a hot number.  Only kidding.

**** Once upon a time, Celebrity Sighting.  Al Pacino and his wench. The girlfriend of Hollywood veteran Al Pacino has ended their two-year relationship, after admitting that the near four-decade age gap between them was becoming too difficult. Meital Dohan, a 40-year-old Israeli actress had been dating Pacino, 79 since the pair reportedly met at a party in Los Angeles. “It’s hard to be with a man so old, even Al Pacino. The age gap is difficult, yes. I tried to deny it, but now he is already an elderly man, to be honest. So even with all my love, it didn’t last.”

**** New York City is talking about releasing our olde prisoners.  They cost a fortune to keep and they present no real threat. The question is are they being kept incarcerated out of vengeance only?  Victims are not too happy with the idea. When I was in jail I was young.

**** New york’s nicest bathroom. The well-appointed bathroom, which reopened recently after a two-and-a-half-year makeover that cost nearly $600,000, sits in Greeley Square Park, on Broadway between 32nd and 33rd Streets, a quick dash from a major subway stop and the New York terminus of the PATH train, which connects Manhattan to New Jersey.

**** Another aspect of the millions of illegals coming into the United States.  Half of adult New Yorkers lived in poverty in recent years, according to a stark study that also found at least one in five of them were impoverished in 2019 alone. Some 3.4 million adults in the city lived below the poverty line at some point between 2012 and 2019, a new analysis found.  One in five households with children lived in poverty in 2019 and 34% of them experienced hardship because they couldn’t afford housing, heat, food, healthcare and other basic necessities. Women and New Yorkers of color in the city were disproportionately more likely to be poor, the study found.
