If you've received your deluxe Oval Essentials brochure or your weekly update from Stuy Town management or if you've walked around the Oval, you'll recognize the push: NFL ON THE OVAL. As reported before, this was another event FAIL for Lady Maya and crew, and a waste of resources (including the use of about 5 security personnel).
There's also this poster for the event, the photo from which amusingly proclaims fail on its own:
As you can see, there's not much of a crowd present, and of the crowd that's there, some are ignoring the screen, like the kid to the right, who's more interested in whatever gadget is in his hands.
But, wait, there's more to the story.
I've wondered for a while about the relationship between management and Town & Village, our area newspaper. T & V is a valuable resource, as it not only writes about and reaches our community, but is able to get actual responses and quotes from management on a number of issues, even if those responses are full of annoying spin and bs.
Well, this week, the last page of T & V contained this photo:
Kinda looks familiar, no? It also shows more of the "crowd" that gathered for this silly event, and tells how the image in the poster was cropped to not give away too much dead space. LOL.
Of course what's not funny is that my building, as well as many buildings in ST/PCV, needs a good interior paint job and some plastering. But I guess that takes second or third or fourth place to running events like NFL ON THE OVAL.
