Bloomberg Booed At Annual St. Patrick’s Parade In Storm-Ravaged Rockaways

Photo Credit: Michael HicksMayor Bloomberg was booed yesterday as he walked in the annual St. Patrick’s Parade in the hurricane-ravaged Rockaways.

The jeers grew so loud toward the end of the Queens parade that mayoral candidate and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn appeared to break away from the mayor to march separately.

A spokesman for Quinn later said she always intended to walk separately from the mayor. Locals didn’t spare their ire over the area’s slow recovery, hoisting signs reading, “Mr. Mayor, we need jetties” and “Listen to the Rockaways.”

“We’ve been dying down here, up to our ears in muck trying to rebuild, get back to a regular life,” one heckler told The Post.

“For the politicians to come down here and try to take our celebration and make it their thing . . . it’s disgusting.” At the end of the route, Bloomberg thanked the Sanitation Department, cops and firefighters who worked to restore the neighborhood after the storm.

    Regular folk don’t like an elitist pompous ass trying to tell them how to live This is not news. I imagine they have booed him since he was voted in by New York City!

    I don’t know where ‘Rockaway’ is, but I’m surprised that the little Hitler isn’t BOO’D in every city in the whole darn state when he sticks his nose outside. BUT, On the contrary however: they KEEP re-electing this Tin-Pot Maniacal petty Dictator.

    (Almost a microcosm of the problems infesting the W/H which affect the whole of our Country.)

    He should’ve been tarred and feathered.
