City Wants ‘Excursion’ Boats at Brooklyn Pier

pier City Wants ‘Excursion’ Boats at Brooklyn PierMake way for booze cruises. The city’s Economic Development Corporation is searching for a company to set up shop for “excursion services” leaving from the Brooklyn Army Terminal in South Brooklyn.

The EDC yesterday issued the request for proposals, which is not specific in what exactly is envisioned there other than saying that the EDC is looking for a company “to operate excursions, educational boat services, and/or other waterborne vessels intended for public use.”

The boats would dock at Pier 4 at the terminal, which is also home to a NY Water Taxi commuter stop. The Pier is west of Borough Park in Brooklyn.

We’re still waiting to hear back from the EDC with any elaboration on the RFP.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
