There was an awful lot of commentary about how ungreen NYC was that turned
out to be all in that, at first not named, commisary that seemed to be
the problem. It does set one off when one's community is attacked

I did not say they were currently ungreen. I said they were when I lived
there, in the area where I lived which was Staten Island. The commissary
was in Brooklyn and probably still is. I can not speak for how they are
now. I don't know anyone who lives there now.
