Buttonwillow sounds like a finalist for name the estate in Rebecca that was rejected as less realistic sounding  than Manderley.

Manton, if it makes you feel any better about the weather in NYC, the air is nearly liquid out here this week. No cool ocean breezes, just bleh.

EDIT: Fucking iPhone auto-correct...

Is NYC ever quiet? I mean, could you sit outside and only hear natural sounds?

Cool. Not how I pictured NYC. I always figure that no matter where you live in the city you're subject to quite a bit of noise.

really depends where in Manhattan. The avenues tend to be loud all around, neighborhoods quiet(er), Midtown awful all the time. I've spent some late nights in Tribeca, and it's surprisingly quiet, and in a good way.




People who only visit on occasion tend to think of Midtown and Times Square as "NYC!!!!" But nobody fucking lives there, it's too insufferable with crowds, noise, and big buildings.

When Irene was scheduled to hit Manhattan, the subway closed for the first time ever and all the 24/7 stores closed. It looked like a scene from the Last Man on Earth. That was the last time I recall Manhattan being that quiet. That big snow storm around Christmas that shut everything down was a close 2nd.

It is very quiet on my block actually. It was also quiet and surreal when the power was out downtown after Sandy. Subways were down, no cars over bridges. I had to walk home about 10 miles largely in the dark. Took me over 3 hours. It was quiet then, creepily so.

i woke up early and heard birds outside when i walked into my living room.


now though, I'd imagine all that one could hear is construction. I've gathered that roughly 40% of Manhattan is being reconstructed in one way or the other.
