Watch the national media not chase this story to the ground and beat it until there’s nothing left but a few teeth, bones and a coarse hide.
It really is a tale of two cities — this time with the tony Upper East Side getting the shaft!
Huge swaths of the city’s wealthiest neighborhood had been not been plowed by early Tuesday evening, leaving 1-percenters out in the cold, according to the city’s own map of snow-plower activity.
“He is trying to get us back. He is very divisive and political,” said writer and life-long Upper East Side mom Molly Jong Fast of Mayor de Blasio.
“By not plowing the Upper East Side, he is saying, ‘I’m not one of them.’ But we have everyone in this area on the Upper East Side. We have rich people, middle class people, and housing projects. We have it all.”
There appeared to be no snow plowing between East 59th and 79th Streets and between Second and Fifth Avenues.
De Blasio has New Yorkers pining for the return of the soda ban king.
The city blamed the apparent lack of plowing, which its own map showed, on a busted GPS. That really doesn’t explain why actual snow remained on the ground.
The good news for De Blasio: Despite the fact that he’s obviously an extremist, he’s the kind of extremist that Gov. Andrew Cuomo has no problem with.
