How do Vienna's districts compare to NYC neighborhoods?
Hey! I was born and raised in Vienna and live here now.I spent 5 months living in NYC in 2011. I would compare Williamsburg in Brooklyn to a combination of the 6th (Mariahilf) and 7th (Neubau) districts of Vienna. Lots of hipsters and young creatives. Nice little restaurants, bars and shops. A very friendly albeit damn-i'm-cool vibe. Park Slope would be comparable to Vienna's 2nd district (Leopoldstadt) which is the home of the famous Augarten (similar vibe to Prospect Park). Lot's of young couples with their babies. Also the wonderful Karmeliter market. An understated atmosphere without being boring.I lived down in Bed-Stuy while I was in New York. The 16th district (Ottakring) feels like a good counterpart to that. Very diverse with lots of ethnic food shops and a great market (Brunnenmarkt). Like Bed-Stuy, students as well as young families have recognized the charming neighborhood and appreciate the lower living costs. I foresee jentrification in both places. I hope i'm wrong.That's all i've got for now. I wish you all the best in your research and i'm delighted by your interest in my hometown :)
How difficult is it to become district attorney in NYC?
First, there are five District Attorneys in New York City, one for each Borough. It’s an elective office. Incumbents are often reelected for as long as they want to be, so there aren’t a lot of available jobs. But I’m guessing you mean assistant D-A. And by NYC, I assume you mean New York County — which is Manhattan’s official name.Based on my experience in covering court cases, I would say they look for people from high end law schools willing to work for low end wages. An ADA has to be dedicated, hard working, prompt and able to juggle big caseloads.Do you have a good track record, i.e. you clear a lot of cases that stay cleared? Has becoming a prosecutor been a long term goal or is it simply the Big Idea of the moment?It’s not like you see on TV. It’s not like you read in the novels of Linda Fairstein or Robert K. Tanenbaum.

Why is the Republican party sending out letters signed by Ronna McDaniel asking voters in every Congressional District to fill out a census to support Donald Trump?
She can do as she wants but I will NOT support trump wanting to put a citizenship question on the census. trump wants to know where legal and non citizens live. Many non citizens have been here for years due to their working for a company that is owned by a foreign company. It doesn’t change the fact that they are using public roads, schools, etc. and paying taxes to the IRS.Foreign Citizens Living and Working in the U.S. If you are a foreign citizen residing in the U.S., you are required to file an annual return with the IRS. You are considered a 'Resident Alien' and have to declare your worldwide income as well as your non-U.S. bank accounts.U.S. Tax Rules Applicable to Foreign Nationals - FindLawThat is not the purpose of the census. The purpose of the census is to count EVERY person living in the US no matter their status, so that monies can be distributed to and representation in Congress can be determined. Citizenship does not enter into the reason for the census. There are foreigners working for a short time or years living here due to their employment at a foreign company.The information is used to get a broader sense about the population in general. This information then is used to calculate the number of seats that each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives. The information is also used to determine which communities will receive federal funding, and how much.IMHO ~ Adding the citizenship question to the census will give our dictator-in-chief a reason to withhold funding from some states with large numbers of foreigners. Another way to cause division in our country.
