NYC: you can have it 

New York has been called the "capital of the world", "the big apple", and maybe "the world's second home". A place that has loomed large in the american conscience for hundreds of years, and for the last 10 years it has been a mecca for fasionable for 20-somethings. The image of New York grew only larger after the attacks of 9/11, and the world watched the care and concern this tough city shared for the victims.

It is also wildly expensive. All the fine dining and culture in the world won't balm my noise of the fetid stink of not being able to live decently on $100,000. While I am sure this will fall on at least 50% deaf ears (ears attached to heads I imagine will soon be making more than 100k), if almost all of us [me] who would journey to NYC are offered nothing better than Midnight Cowboy, I say: Fuck it.

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
