When is the day that you are devoting to rent in NY area?

I would suggest real info on rent control and Albany.

Also, The Metropolitan Council on Housing is a good source of rent control/stabilization.

As a former Bostonian and a 13 year resident of NYC, I find it a little strange that we will now have a mayor for 16 straight years that were born and raised for a time in Massachusetts. To DeBlasio's credit, he own's up to being a Red Sox fan.

Is anyone talking about what a good candidate Barbara Buono has been? To get 40% against Christie is pretty significant. Has she now positioned herself for a strong run for Governor in 2016?

Is there any data on what percentage of those who vote answer ballot questions?

I heard two people say, "Oh, I didn't see there was something on the back" and I am positive they were two of the very few who discovered this. There is no indicator that the ballot continues on the back. I wish there were a big fat arrow "next page"; as is, I wish the election workers reminded people the ballot is on both sides.

Please don't forget to share the results of today's ballot questions.

Why can't you just make the obvious conclusion. People in NJ voted for Christie and have no idea why, they obviously name reasons that do not match the reality of his record. So just say it, people voted without thinking, with their gut and against their own interests. There is no excuse for the professional press, which I used to consider NPR, to not call people out on this. I hear you guys dancing around this right now, its crazy, just say it !!! This is the reason our country is quickly going down hill. People are ill informed and you guys (press) just reinforce the bad decisions being made. Its is irresponsible, get some backbone for the sake of this country.

I voted for Booker and Christie. Their opponents were too far right and left, respectively. Booker and Christie look to get the job done, despite party politics. The country is primarily centrist and we need to stop listening to the fringe left and right of the parties.
