You di'int answer about your NYC tenure.
To answer your query:
In previous posts you've complained about gentrification and acted like pre-gentrification Williamsburger was/would have been way better.* That you're scared to bike reinforces the hilarity (to me) that you think/thought gentrification is bad. Because biking is not as scary** as having your face smashed in or getting shot.
*unless that was someone else. but it wasn't.
**i do have first hand experience, used to bike (versus dense traffic) in midtown all the time.
