dude - when it gets a bit cooler, we really gotta take that grating off - that is unless your 'hood experiences over the last year have made you rethink derigging security measures.....

The city is amazing, and becomes for most New Yorkers the only place they can imagine living. I recommend it to all.

You might want to reconsider your position on the boroughs however. The distinctions between each might seem negligible from afar, but trust me, New Yorkers find the five to be vastly different from one another, and have powerful loyalties to the one they call their own.

Clearly, I'm a Brooklyn kid. I never looked at another borough when I was planning to move here, nor will I before I go. It's chill, and working class, and well, very real. The massive creative community doesn't hurt either.

Manhattan is too much work, too much money, too much.

Queens has it's charms (great food, great ethnic diversity), but in general has a suburban feel, and consequently residents with a suburban mentality. I'll pass.

The Bronx has it's edge and little more.

And Staten Island isn't even worth discussing. It's an isolated isle of secretaries with marginal intelligence, garbage and cars.


I'd still love to shed the grating. Though I must admit, as I long for a life of porches and dogs, I have less and less energy to tackle the aesthetics of a property I do not own. Even if we're there for another couple years, is it worth it? I'm not so sure anymore. I'm getting used to it now...

Also, you might be right about the "hood experiences", have you seen the Craig's List ad I just posted? Scary.

You're right. Wu Tang totally counts. They may be the only thing keeping the island afloat (culturally at least).

you need to learn to *DRIVE* first, buddy.

(plus porches and dogs sounds a lot like suburbia)
