WELL AT LEAST YOU DON’T LIVE IN NEW YORK CITY

New York City has got to be the only place that can get away with claiming your property value has increased, you can’t appeal and therefore your taxes must rise even while real estate is actually going down the toilet. Fat chance of getting a decrease when actual values register.

Meanwhile years ago at some point I put a wrought-iron fence around a tree in front of my house. Now the city is actually cutting cement, servicing tree wells, and providing free iron fences along the block. With such screwed up priorities no wonder the city is in the hole.
