At this point, you're starting to prove how ill-informed you are .....
About NYC or any other metropolitan area.
If the residents of NYC wanted a walmart closer to them, they would have allowed it. They're not going out of their way for something they don't want!

Edit: Sunday afternoon ....
Pull that up tomorrow morning & let us know what it shows ....
More like their idiot Govt officials and some of the unions don't want it. 39% opposed it, but 64 % said they'd would shop there if they had one.

1. Your map search was from Queens NY to Valley Stream .. because you are NOT FAMILIAR with the area. A more appropriate search would be LIC to Valley Stream. This map is OPTIMISTIC at best, it's at least an hour.

2.Queens is a borough that is about 10-12 miles long in each direction. it's got about 3 MILLION people that reside there & has about 140+ different nationalities of people. The old saying is correct, it's a concrete jungle. People measure distance in terms of BLOCKS NOT MILES.

3. You are informing yourself by what you read on the internet. I don't know the percentage ... but a large percentage of the residents of NYC don't even speak English! I have family members that have lived in NYC for 50+ years that don't speak any English. You know what they do know? .... THEY KNOW HOW TO VOTE! Their local politicians listen to them. They do not answer polls!

This thread was hijacked a long time ago & the discourse has gotten tiresome.
I can delete the image if it's offensive ...

Grizzly: 'NYC consist of the 5 boroughs: Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx & Staten Island.
The boroughs of Queens & Brooklyn (also known as Kings County) are physically on the island of Long Island but are part of NYC.'

Why would it be from LIC, which is close to Manhattan? The Queens is a part of NYC. You said they would never have a Wal-Mart in NYC which includes the Queens. I merely mapped directions from the Queens, (NYC) to the closest Walmart in Long Island. If you think it's optimistic at best, take it up with Google Maps. They also consider construction and traffic flow.
Just rebutting a claim that it's like driving from Detroit to Folwerville or Howell, which is about an hour. Like I said before, people from Detroit (which have no Walmarts like NYC) drive to Wal-Mart's in the suburbs. Roughly about 20 minutes to a half hour. Similar to driving from Queens, which is part of NYC to a Wal-Mart on Long Island.
The politicians listen mostly to their donors, which include the unions, so they might not listen with a keen ear as much to a regular citizen, regardless if polls from them say they want it.

I kind of agree that Walmart doesn’t belong in NYC, within eyesight of a big, beautiful Trump Tower.

That NY Amazon pullout. I don't know what you call that. A cluster screw up with her signature on it. That didnt make America better in her neck of the woods.
I never said she knew how to do it, lol.

I just mean, she’s hard headed enough to stick to her guns if she believes what she’s doing is right, and I don’t mean against Trump, I mean against Pelosi/Schumer.

Progressive liberals and little children are precisely the same in many ways, not the least of which they lack the ability of critical thinking, and they are generally ignorant about anything outside of their own very limited life experiences, clueless beyond the immediate wants and needs, and stupid about unintended consequences and ramifications, yet are 100 percent utterly sure of themselves.

Led by their new star AOC, there is now an enemies list for any member that doesn't tow the party line. Can't vote with the Republicans on anything.
There's a word for that, and it ain't Socialism. It's totalitarianism. And it's astonishing how quickly and easily she fell into that mold.
