Corporate jets, luxury boxes, Super Bowl ads; like that?

Does the ignore function only work if one tells the offending party they are being placed on ignore?

I'm guessing the data would almost suggest that the opposite is true.

I'm with Gomestar. Let's talk about the fucking industry now. That's got to be much more interesting than either oil or restaurants.

Coconut oil is going to solve all of the world's problems.

In Houston just as in NYC, I would never make a trip out of getting coffee. Taking your pick of local places downstairs is one thing (I have just as many available here as in NYC by the way), going to a different neighborhood for a cup sounds cray cray to me.

Not that I disagree with what you guys were saying related to gentrification, but it does have some benefits. Before Whole Foods came to the city and Fairway was bought by a sponsor and expanded, you had to buy your groceries at the likes of D'Agostino and Food Emporium which was (and still is) a pretty sad experience.

This is partly true (depending on your neighborhood). There were/are a handful of places (Fairway, A&V, Garden of Eden, Gourmet Garage, etc.) that bridged the gap nicely. No one is arguing that some improvement in the grocery scene is a bad thing (although there are WF haters) - it is the umpteen Starbucks, Duane Reades, WaWas, 7-11s, etc that are replacing still vibrant & viable businesses who cannot afford the 10X rent increase.

Why don't we just hate on the patrons of all of these places? I don't know a single person who goes to Dunkin Donuts, yet they seem to be fucking everywhere. They are everywhere because people shop at them. Hate the patrons not the business.

Also, I kind of have no hate for Duane Reade. I actually find it annoying when areas don't have them and I have to walk more than 6 blocks to find one. Even worse 3 avenues.

That song pops into my head every single time I walk past that store.



Citarella is the best general grocery store in NYC, and I miss it dearly.

I've only been to Citarella once in my life. What do you mean you miss it? It didn't go anywhere.

I was forced to move away from one.

Actually the only time I was there I found it kind of dumpy. The one on 6th ave in the village.
