Watch the NYPL Waste $184,000 +

When the New York Public Library sent their usual soft-touch gimme letters out this year, they added a new item.

They asked WHY NOT? of past donors who were about to check "NO, I cannot contribute to the NYPL this year."
• • Several Greenwich Villagers reported that they gave this answer: "You wasted $184,000 + of taxpayers' money by commissioning an interior renovation plan for Jefferson Market Library without consulting the community first nor doing a Needs Assessment, therefore, you don't need more $$$ to throw at Susan C.Y.A. Kent. Fire this loser, then we'll talk."
• • Keep those cards and letters coming.
