Reasons why New York Sucks - Page 6

post #76 of 7088

Paris in the spring.

NYC in the autumn, though the week before Christmas is pretty magical.

 

I don't know why anyone would want to be in Queens or the Bronx let alone give a shit how much it costs to travel from one to the other.

You're having a problem with the humidity, ladies? Try dress shields.

Can't get a mimosa before 11 at brunch?  Are you a 22-year-old marketing assistant named Tiffany? Who actually goes to brunch and what man orders a mimosa in public? "Mmmm ... you can really tastes the peach nectar."

 

Alvy Singer on living in LA: I don't want to move to a city where the only cultural advantage is being able to make a right turn on a red light.

I could be wrong but I get the impression that living quarters in NYC tend to be very small and almost claustrophobic. I feel like everyone hears their neighbors having sex and can smell what you cooked for dinner. Maybe that's only parts of NYC?

Alvy Singer: Don't you see the rest of the country looks upon New York like we're left-wing, communist, Jewish, homosexual pornographers? I think of us that way sometimes and I live here.

Is this up there with senior citizens crossing their legs within shouting distance of women in your company that would force you to confront the culprit?

very small, yes. But also depends on how much $$ you have, big can very easily happen in the middle of Manhattan. The other things you mentioned are probably more of a function of the quality of the building, thin walls are thin walls. I've never encountered it personally. And when one has had enough with apartment life, that's when they move to NJ or Westchester.

the worst smell in the world is the halway of a manhattan apartment building. Once you get inside it tends to be better. But still cramped.

Tom Wolfe was right, nobody lives here for "quality of life." quality of life here is negative zero.

My room is small, but the apartment is decently sized with a private roof access for only my unit. The common hallway/stairway area can have smells and noises from the other apartments above but it NEVER intrudes into my actual apartment. Street noise is another thing entirely, thankfully my AC unit drowns out all but the sirens.

I was caught in that hellatious downpour 1 block from my apartment (went to drop something off during lunch) with only my tiny backup umbrella on me. I was not pleased to have to change my shoes and pants, waited it out at my place eating lunch before I made it back to the office in significantly lighter rain.

I am all for leg crossing. Shoes on a cloth seat 3' from my wife's dinner plate - I had an issue.

I don't know...at least new yorkers all pretty much get the rules (stand to the right on an escalator, a midtown sidewalk during rush hour isn't the right time or place for a leisurely stroll, let people off the subway before trying to get on, etc.).....it's the tourists in the summer that make the city a little less tolerable.

I think any area that attracts tourists tends to leave the locals at odds with the tourists. I know I hate when folks from NYC visit my locale and bother me. wink.gif
