    How much money do you think MTA makes from just from Utica Ave train station on Labor Day? They run a rush hour schedule from six in the morning to 10pm at night both ways. And every train is full. You do the math. But maybe that's the problem carnival people can't do math.
    3 million ppl in a six hour period which is going to decrease to at least half when ppl realize they may have to pay to enter. So yuh amke money for 6 hours and then the next 364 days and 18 hours in the year yuh need to pay for maintenance and upkeep.

    Sorry Shandy, my mistake...

    The city is not going to give up close to have a billion dollars. They can't believe the carnival people are that dum.

    R U SERIOUS?

    I am SURE U R.

    Well, the RESPONSIBILITY of VINCY MAS is UNDER the UMBRELLA of the MINISTRY of CULTURE. So this is a VINCENTIAN/GOVERNMENT RUN EVENT. Therefore, the VINCENTIAN BUSINESS sector and the GOVERNMENT are the ones who should BENEFIT from VINCY MAS.

    The CARIBBEAN COMMUNITY BENEFITS because there will be MORE TRAFFIC coming to VINCYLAND during that TIME period. So in the case of BARBADOS, they will BENEFIT from VINCY MAS and so will other NATIONS that TRAVEL from other CARIBBEAN NATIONS to VINCYLAND.

    But in TERMS of the REVELLERS, they will have a GRAND TIME when they come to VINCYLAND for VINCYMAS. Just to be in the GEMS of the ANTILLES is more than enough BENEFIT for NON VINCENTIANS to ATTEND VINCY MAS.

    That SAID, it is the WEST INDIAN COMMUNITY under the DIRECTION of WIADCA who is SUPPOSE to BENEFIT the MOST from LABOR DAY on de PARKWAY, but I DO NOT BELIEVE this is HAPPENING. Being that the CITY is making 200 MILLION DOLLARS because of this EVENT, CLEARLY the WEST INDIAN COMMUNITY is GETTING the SHORT END of the STICK.

    This is WE TING but it seems like DA CITY is the DEFACTO FINANCIAL WINNER of WE TING.

    There is no WAY that a COMMUNITY who is GENERATING over 200 MILLION DOLLARS to the CONFERS of the CITY should NOT GET what it WANTS from the CITY.

    Again, we NEED a CEO with a BUSINESS BACKGROUND and PREFERABLY with POLITICAL CONNECTIONS to RUN WIADCA. It is time to WRESTLE CONTROL of WIADCA from the LEZAMA FAMALEE.

    YUHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SEEEEEEEEEEEEE MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEee

    lol Almost a good monologue.. I expected you to go into a little history also but I guess you know me better by now..

    One thing though, you do know that the 200million is not in direct dollars right?!... :

    You stop dey wit dat. Don't make assumptions on what the city will do. While the city gets a lot of revenue, it also generates massive expenditures as a result of this event. The NYPD, FDNY (EMS) and sanitaton overtime figures aren't small at all. To some it is far more hassle than it is worth. Now if the association could reasonably demontsrate the value of this commodity then this would all be moot. They once had trouble proving 5M only about 5 years ago to the state and I know this personally. So in all their years of existence if only 5 years ago they couldn't demonstrate on paper 5M of revenue directly associated with the parade, why the hell should the city, state, or anyone else for that matter give them anything? That 200M figure is astounding but can they even prove 10% of that realisticaly?
