FiOS is now available in my neighborood and that is the only reason much of the material linked through “neighborhood” exists. It took a year and a half and help from Common Cause to get it done. In words of one of NYC’s mayor’s after a long loosing battle with a neighborhood, “Great, now they’ll think they can get whatever they want.” He was right.
