How much does somebody need to earn today to be considered rich in NYC with average apartment costing over one million dollars?
Rich? At least 5-10 million/ann.
And, how much credit does Gullani deserve for the dropoff in crime in NYC? Didn't murder drop across the board in every other major metropolitian city during that time period?
Giuliani deserves most of it. He had the balls to lead the changes . The dropoff in crime was 1st in NYC; then other cities also began to follow the Bratton/Giuliani/Broken Windows model.
Before 9/11, it didn't seem Gullani was much beloved in the city especially from minorities.
Absolutely right. Give the man a star. You don't make changes in a mob-corrupted, union-run, bureaucracy-entrenched city full of the arrogant & affluent - like New York - without being a total prick. Rudy is that. Thank God - he gave us back our City.
