    Most of the good shit closed, It's mostly banks and shit that's the same as any other city.

    Bring back the hookers or something

    Come to NYC, buy a condo and stare at other people in condos.

    See that condo? CBGB's used to be there. Actually it's 'John Varvatos' you can get a pair of $500 pants.

    This is Washington Square Park, people used to hang out but Bloomberg flattened it for NYU.

    NYC pizza is so amazingly better than pizza from anywhere else that it's worth living in a shithole city with shithole A group of lovely people and a half Reggie mayor and crime and poverty and corruption and rape and New Jersey next door and all of that other shit.

    I hope you choke on a slice.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2015/07/12/fashion/last-stop-on-the-l-train-detroit.html

    “Detroit, Just West of Bushwick,” read the first billboard that popped up in Bushwick, Brooklyn, this spring, with a working class scene from one of Diego Rivera’s “Detroit Industry” murals. “Detroit, Be Left Alone,” a second one preached soon after, again in Bushwick. And then a third sign appeared, in two locations in Brooklyn and two in Manhattan — “Detroit: Now Hiring.”

    No one quite knew where they were coming from or who had put them up.

    But when an unrelated photo popped up on Instagram — “Move to Detroit” spray-painted on a girder of the Brooklyn Bridge — the campaign’s anonymous crusader finally revealed himself.
