Steve Nislick, the 70-year-old founder of NYCLASS, told his handler he was on the verge of getting violent with the photographer [Thursday] as he unveiled the prototype of his electric car at the Javits Center. “Let’s get away from the Daily News before I hit her in the face,” muttered Nislick, the anti-carriage industry crony of Mayor de Blasio.
“Steady, steady,” the man with him said, taking Nislick’s elbow and guiding him out of hitting range.
