    one could do this right now on the Park Ave. median, and I feel like it's a dare.


    but I don't want to lose my trouser crease :(

    walking from the train to the apartment last night was painful. Fast moving ice pellets hurt.

    was reading some old George Carlin and I came across a comparison a few of you Californian transplants might enjoy:

    "California is like a small woman saying "Fuck me." New York is like a large man saying "FUCK YOU!""

    I left the friendly confines of SF for a week+ stint in NYC and wanted to thank this thread for edumacating me on the sidewalk shed phenomenon. Fortunately the weather is tolerable and the city seems to have rebounded quickly from Sandy.

    I love being here in small doses.

    Just back from a long weekend. Pacino. Nutcracker. Balthazar. Vanessa's Dumplings. Peeked in the sanctuary of the church where I was confirmed in 1977 and heard "The Lord's Prayer" being sung in Korean. Forest Hills looks exactly the same... the Beechknoll commons is one of the greatest places in the world. Wow Astoria is a dump. I must get Junior's cookbook and make those Black & Whites. Cab ride from JFK to NoLiTa took sixteen hours but I enjoyed riding past Jamaica Hospital, the place at which I entered the world. :slayer:

    Sorry to disappoint those who are subscribed to this thread looking for more NYC suckage. Hell, even Astoria has Bohemian Hall. But it also has trash fucking everywhere. Zillow says the homes are selling for $800K and up and there's overstuffed lawn bags seeping sewage in damn near every driveway. When your neighborhood's community website has a thread confirming the filth, complete with links to government PDFs, man that's bad.

    i wish we had more snow.

    Go ahead, cold haters and hate away "oh, I hate the way snow sometimes stings my precious face", but I like it, especially in the city.

    I really don't like trudging through it, also, it makes it difficult for my FWD minivan to get up my driveway.

    I actually agree. I'd much rather it snow than have cold rain. 25 and snowy or 35 and rainy? Would pick the snow any day of the week.

    Tried to smoke a cigar in CP today. When the hell did they ban smoking outside?

    This place is more SanFo-like than I remember.

    Not sure Paley will work as I hate smoking around other cigar smokers.

    Can I sit on the outside edge of CP on a bench? Grey zone?

    In McCarren I've witnessed this scene with an old man in a full sailor outfit at the picnic benches outside the dog run. He then walked into the dog run and sat down right next to me....his son walked over and they started talking in thiiiicck boston accents to each other. then called over his black lab and left.
