    I lived in DC for a summer, and had a great time, but I prefer NYC by a large margin. The traffic alone made me want to drill my eyes out.



    and in my experience, Comast and Time Warner Cable are equally deplorable companies.

    I don't think I have ever seen that. An 8-year old in a stroller ? My 3.5 year olds are as average as can be for height and weight and they're starting to outgrow their stroller (feet starting to hang out of the feet rest, very snug in the seat, etc...).

    Yes. But you are a dad. A good dad. Teh wimminz will let 15 yos ride in umbrella strollers if they could. We can't wait for them to walk so we can just be 'dudes'.

    Do you know any places that sell good looking shoes for youngsters besides the staple BB loafers?

    not sure what you mean by good looking (or youngsters) but the jcrew/crewcuts place has nice enough desert boots. we go to the ibiza store near us (boyz are 9), but most offerings, even in the 'dress' category still are kid-like w/ lots of straps, velcro, etc.

    I've seen kids that lok like they play JV basketball in strollers. And then have you guys seen those strollers where you got the huge kid inside and there is a platform on the back of the stroller and some even bigger kid is standing on it, going along for the ride?? Don't anyone of these facking kids walk anymore, when I was younger I LOVED walking from upper west wide/midtown all the way down to the village and further south. On a similar tangent, unemployed moms shopping with their single kid (in a stroller) but with a nanny tagging along, doing all the work :confused:

    Andrew Sullivan lives here now???? Could there be a bigger reason why NY sucks?

    Let's just close the thread, the verdict has been rendered.

    Big cities are not for faint of heart.

    Yeah, a whiny, bitchy, overly moody transplant from another big city. Not like NY needs another one of those...

    Is DC a big city though? I've never lived there but it didn't have a "big city" feel when I visited

    maybe 500K in the district but the metro area is 3 mil or so. The city itself does not feel so huge compared to others in the US in part because of the height restrictions on the buildings. BUt it is teeming with people in a way that other ostensibly "bigger" american cities are not.
