Think I'm just meeting them for lunch somewhere and then letting them go on their merry way.

I go with them. They have a better time because they have a guide and I get to see (again) the things I take for granted, but never go out of my way for.

put them on the MTA and they'll be dead before they reach you

Wow, a friend boarded a M-N train in Poughkeepsie only an hour or so after the ill-fated one left.

"The train engineer says he applied brakes but they didn't respond, sources told The News."

that'll do it.


His pension should be robust enough to cover his impending legal fees.

this could be awesome too depending on the perspective:

apparently the freedom tower presently creates wailing/choral sounds when wind flows through it.

The new ivan ramen probably has the best bowl of Tokyo style ramen in the city right now. Id even venture to say one of the best noodle soups I've ever had. Certainly a far better version of Tokyo style ramen than ippudo does the hakata style ramen. His signature mazemen is fraggin great as well although the garlic one is a little too salty and heavy. Maybe a premature judgment but I honestly cannot wait to go back.

The space (Gotham market) is very hipster and precious and everything is artisanal local hippy type stuff with the price it accords but I like it a lot.

Anybody had the omakase at yuji ramen? Still so hard to get a reservation

So my mother called me up terrified that I'm going to be punched by "a group of black youths". So apparently the whites are getting randomly punched in the face? Can't people be more creative in their assaults?

they seem to be mostly targeting Joos. Or old people. Or women with children.

you're probably too tall.

actually they are getting punched in the back of the head, base of the head, top of the neck, etc.

There have been many victims in many cities. The MSM only started to report it in recent weeks when elderly Jews became the target.

I hadn't actually noticed any increase in hobos like others have mentioned. Until last night. Walking out of MSG, and there's a hobo giving a Rangers chant with his cup out, probably figuring that would get him extra sympathy. Then there was a building across from MSG, and at EVERY SINGLE indent in the building structure, a hobo was sleeping there. Some church was located next to the building, which I'm assuming is the reasons why there were like 20+ hobos sleeping around there, but holy hell. Get to my trian platform, approached by another hobo looking for change. Get off at my stop, another hobo. WTF???

A few people have been killed via the "game" recently--in Syracuse, St. Louis, and elsewhere.

It's not new; it's been around for a decade or more.
