    New York is great when you're getting laid.

    Having one there shouldn't be terrible. Stanton Social is close by too.

    New York is great

    1) When you're young
    2) Visiting
    3) Filthy rich; or
    4) Work for the Mayor

    Otherwise, it sucks.

    We don't have a "why Chicago sucks" so I'll post it here.

    Monday they are predicting a high of -9F and a low of -12F and wind chill of -45F. I didn't sign up for this.

    I have to say... New York weather sucks, but Chicago is just the worst. Absolutely sweltering in the summer, absolutely frigid in the winter. It seems like there are about 2 weeks in either shoulder season where the weather is nice, and the rest of the time it's just miserable.

    I think that probably sums up many major cities in the world.

    Are you talking about the current NYC Mayor? Or the past-Mayor Bloomberg?

    Kind of wish I had worked for Bloomberg so he would hire me at Bloomberg LP for some bullshit $300K job.

    Now that would be a good plan! Bust your ass for him for several years and look for that transition to BLP. Several members of his City Hall team did that in the past(at much higher salaries).........including D Doctoroff/K Sheekey/A Sun/etc.
