    Any suggestions for a relaxed juice/tea bar (e.g., quiet, couches) convenient to the 1/2/3 line in West Village, Chelsea, or similar area? Thanks!

    interesting train ride this morning. For starters, running a train every 7 minutes on a very busy line doesn't work. Thanks, MTA. Then, I caught a break as they announced they're going to skip two stops and the next stop would be mine. Convenient. Skip one. Skip two. Skip THREE. Dumbass conductor. We arrive at the wrong station, yet the conductor announces transfers as if it was the station he skipped.

    I am at a coffee shop right now doing some work. This guy comes in asking people for money. He comes up to me and asks me for some change. I said, "No, sorry" and get back to work. He just stands staring at me. He asks for a dollar now, "No, sorry" I respond. He just stands there staring at me really close for about 20 seconds. I ignored him and posted here immediately. Hopefully, with the latest goings on the city he doesn't come back and blow my brains out. If he does at least it is well documented here. Farewell, (maybe?)

    Since you're not on Twitter or any online discussion fora, I think you're safe.

    It doesn't mean you're immune to murder. Just less likely

    i'm sure if he was on twitter he'd put a link to his profile in his StyleForvm signature.

    Correlation does not equal causation. There's most likely another variable at play that causes the outcome.

    So don't keep us in suspense, did he come back and blow your brains out or not?

    Seems like there's a lot more beggars on the streets. Is this a DeBlasio prelude?
